20k smartphone segment is filled with lots of smartphones by various brands. Which phone is better for you. Let’s find out in this article.
First of all let’s start with a little more than 20,000 rupees.
The Poco F1 by Xiaomi is the great Device at starting price of 21,000. Even the Poco F1 is cheapest smartphone that comes with a Snapdragon 845 SOC. Flagship level specification at mid range price, just close your eyes and order the Poco F1. ( No, if you close your eyes how can you order fot it ? ) Anyway, Poco F1 is a direct competitor of OnePlus 6 ( starting price 35,000 ). Poco F1 comes with liquid cooling technology and IR face unlock which isn’t available in OnePlus 6. However the design isn’t good in Poco because it’s a poly carbonate body. But as per our mind just for a premium design you should not waste 14,000 Extra rupees.
Now let’s talk about sub 20,000 smartphones. The first smartphone we would like to recommend you is Honor Play. Honor play powered by a flagship Kirin 970 AI processor. From display to battery everything seems great on the honor play. Remember it’s a gaming smartphone. The Only problem with the honor play is the camera. It has 16+2MP dual AI camera which looks good on paper. But the images captured with play is not good. You’ll find many smartphone in this price range with better camera.
Now if your priority is the camera then Mi A2 is best option. A stock android phone by Mi. The 20+12 MP dual rear camera and 20 MP front facing camera powered by Snapdragon 660. The algorithm of Mi for the portrait shot is just amazing and natural as well.
There are some cons with the Mi A2. First there is no headphone jack. Second only 3,010 mAh battery which isn’t enough for Snapdragon 660 and 5.99 inches Full HD+ display. The stock android on Mi A2 is little bit buggy. You’ll not find the smoothness in Mi A2.
Nokia 6.1 is a good option for the price 16,000 rupees. Glass body looks so premium on back. And on front a 5.8 inches Full HD+ display with a notch ( !!! ) Is just gorgeous. However the camera isn’t impressive.
Asus ZenFone Max Pro M1 ( Direct Competitor of Redmi Note 5 Pro ) with huge 5,000 mAh battery and stock android is a good option at the starting price of 11,000 is just value for money. However the camera and processor isn’t enough good.
But if you’re looking for a complete package under 20,000 then Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro is the best phone you should go for.
The Snapdragon 636, 4000 mAh battery, A Huge and vibrant 5.99 inches Full HD+ display. 12+5 MP dual rear camera and 20 MP front facing shooter with MIUI is just best offering by Xiaomi.
We’re using this device since 3 months and we’re extremely happy with the overall performance and camera results of this phone. We haven’t noticed any lag yet on the phone. MIUI is the plus point of the 5 pro. Portrait mode can easily beat all the smartphone in this segment.
The Snapdragon 636 can easily handle heavy games like PUBG and Asphalt 9. Of course you can not compare the 636 with the 845 but Snapdragon 636 is a best processor at this price. After heavy use of this device for 3-4 hours you’ll not feel the temperature. The sound quality is good of speaker as well as via 3.5 mm headphone jack. The 4000 mAh battery can easily last for 1 day no matter how heavy user you are.
The 5.99 inches Full HD+ display is stunning for indoor as well as outdoor visibility. If you hate the notches ( same as me ) then you are going to love this device more.
