With so many companies releasing smartphones in the sub 15000 category, it easy for customers in this range to get confused about which smartphone to buy. But don’t worry, we have a list of the best smartphones under 15000 in India 2020 that will help you out. Here is a comprehensive list that will help you choose which smartphone suits your needs.
Redmi Note 8 Pro
The successor to the Note 7 Pro, priced at Rs. 14,999 released by Xiaomi is a great option that we have seen in a while in this category. This phone offers great performance with minimal lags. It has a 4,500 mAh battery that hits the right spot for most of the users.
The Camera department is also a place where the Note 8 pro excelled. It captures great images, even in low-light conditions, where most smartphones struggle. The display is something that could’ve been improved, but for most users, this will prove to be a vivid display.
Samsung Galaxy M30S
The Galaxy M series is Samsung’s answer in this segment. For quite a while Samsung had been criticized for not providing good phones in this segment. The M30S, costing Rs. 12,999, of this series, is the perfect answer to all the criticism. The Exynos 9611 SoC is very much capable to handle day-to-day tasks. The 6,000 mAh battery is very much capable to easily last 2 days of normal use.
As we all know, Samsung is one of the leading brands in the display segment and it does not hold back in this as well. You will definitely enjoy consuming content on this as well. The low-light is something that poses a challenge and is something that the device could really improve on.
Realme 5 Pro
Realme has been releasing quite a lot of smartphones and the 5 Pro has made it to our list. The 5 Pro, coming in at Rs. 12,999, has a really good feel to it and sports a very premium design. The phone handles all the tasks that we throw at it with ease. The battery life is also decent and can easily handle a day of normal tasks.
The 48-megapixel shooter takes great pictures and has a lot of details. Pictures turn out to have a great color balance. The wide-angle could have been way better and we suggest that you only use it if there is no other option.
Vivo Z1 Pro
The Vivo Z1 Pro, which costs Rs. 12,990, was an online-only smartphone and it proved to be quite popular for the company. It has a glossy design with a very flashy gradient finish to it. The display on this one gives a tough competition to the one on the Samsung, has great viewing angles, and is bright enough.
The triple rear camera setup has impressed us with its colors and the amount of detail it captures. Again the wide-angle suffered visible barrel distortion and tended to be a little over-processed.
Xiaomi Mi A3
The Note 7 Pro isn’t the only option of Xiaomi that you should consider. The A3, priced at Rs. 11,999 is a really good option, especially if you aren’t a fan of MIUI since the device is based on Google’s Android One platform and runs stock Android. It has great overall build quality but lacks on the display front. The HD+ resolution is not something that everyone might look forward to, even though it is an AMOLED panel.
The camera department is its strong point. It captures great quality images with great detail. The photos turn out to be a lot crisp with great colors. The only thing to mention here is that the device can focus on objects quite quickly, which helps you click pictures fast.
Realme Narzo 20 Pro
The first phone from Realme to be included in this list is the Realme Narzo 20 Pro. The design of the Narzo 20 pro seems to be very similar to that of the Realme 7 this is what helps in getting the cost of this one down to about Rs 13,999. It has a side-mounted fingerprint sensor and the device has a 4,500 mAh battery that helps it easily run for over a day.
The distinguishing feature that has helped in entering our list is the 90Hz display. It is very rare to see a fast refresh rate screen at this price point, and to all the gamers out there, this may seem to be the factor that tips you over to buy this one over the many others in our list here.
Poco M2 Pro
The Poco M2 Pro is really well built and has an excellent design. It has a 6.67-inch full-HD+ display with a punch-hole camera in the center of the screen. You get 4 cameras on the back that can deliver well in good lighting conditions but will definitely struggle in low light.
The Snapdragon 720G combined with a 5,000mAh battery really helps it perform well and lasts longer during the day. You can also look at it as one of the gaming options in this list if that is what suits you the best.
Redmi Note 9
The Redmi Note 9 is the basic version of the Note 9 series offered by my Redmi. It shares the same design as the Pro and Max models and comes in 3 variants: 4GB + 64GB, 4GB + 128GB and 6GB + 128GB. I would personally advise you to go for the 2nd one with 4GB of RAM and 128GB of storage.
It houses a Mediatek Helio G85 and a 5,020 mAh battery. You do get a 22.5W charger in the box which is nice to have especially when you have such a big battery. This will help you to charge your device very quickly. Right now you can purchase this device for around 11k from Amazon.
Samsung Galaxy A21s
The next best smartphone under 15000 in India 2020 is the Galaxy A21s. This device cuts the price very close to be in our category. The A-series has always been a mid-tier phone that has a solid build quality and would, in some cases, replicate the features in the S series.
This device has a 6.5-inch punch-hole screen. It is powered by Samsung’s own Exynos processor and will come with 4GB of RAM and a 5,000 mAh battery. It has a similar design to the M series this time, with a fingerprint sensor at the back.
The Nokia 5.3 is a budget offering that comes with a very simple design. Rocking a 6.55-inch screen and 20:9 aspect ratio the device is much on the taller side and may not be suited for people who have small hands. The device has a drop-style notch and has a quad-camera setup on the back.
It is powered by the Snapdragon 665 and comes in 2 variants: 4GB plus 64GB and 6GB plus 64GB. It has a 4,000 mAh battery and falls under Google’s Android One Program.
