Having a tight budget to buy a phone comes with a lot of searching, reading and compromising, isn’t it? However, we’re here to help! We’ve exclusively shortlisted 6 best mobile phones under Rs. 25,000 that are truly changing the mid-range mobile segment. Take a look!
- Mi 10i
To set the bar for the mid-range segment in 2021, the Mi 10i is a very good contender. It brings a range of “expensive” characteristics to a phone that is priced lower than most of its rivals. Users get a decent output from the main 108-megapixel camera and a 120Hz IPS-LCD display with very impressive colors. Thanks to its sleek nature, the phone itself is a beautiful product. The side-mounted fingerprint sensor works very well and when it comes to the Mi 10i, the IP53 ranking lends the notion of longevity. You get a headphone jack on the phone as well, which is a trend that is slowly getting displaced. However, what does not work for the Mi 10i is the display, which has a fairly low peak brightness and problems with reflection.
- Vivo V19
Most boxes are checked right by Vivo V19 for features and specifications that a smartphone 2021 should have. It looks premium, has a nice and bright monitor, is backed by a huge 4500mAh battery and has a strong camera system that provides impressive pictures in both daylight and lowlight conditions. It supports a decent processor and provides excellent performance. The smartphone comes with a quad-rear camera configuration consisting of a 48-megapixel shooter, a wide-angle camera with 8-megapixel and a bokeh camera with 2-megapixel. Also, it has 32-megapixel sensors and 8-megapixel sensors. The Vivo V19 is certainly a good option for anyone looking for an overall package with outstanding camera and smooth performance.
- Realme X3 SuperZoom
With a capable LCD display, excellent battery life, and fast charging support, the Realme X3 SuperZoom is a quick and smooth performer. Although its 64MP quad camera configuration, which includes a 60x zoom lens, is the highlight of the smartphone, it may be the only aspect of the phone that is not as impressive as the rest of the features. The telephoto camera is the principal difference between the Realme X3 and the SuperZoom edition. An 8-megapixel periscope-style camera is used in the X3 SuperZoom, which enables the claimed 5x optical zoom to be achieved. The phone provides excellent battery life at a steady refresh rate of 120Hz and can comfortably last for moderate to light use for a full day and a half.
- Galaxy M51
Unlike any phone that can deliver at its cost, what you get with the Galaxy M51 is an exceptionally good battery life of 7000mAh. Along that, you also get very good performance on the side, cameras and also an expansive display.
The Galaxy M51 is excellent for multi-tasking, browsing, navigation and is fluid and quick for general use even with the use of heavy apps such as YouTube or Instagram in the background. The unit has a quad primary lens set up for the camera aspect, consisting of a 64-megapixel main lens along with an ultra-wide-angle 12-megapixel camera, a 5-megapixel macro shooter and another 5-megapixel depth shooter. A 32-megapixel front camera is available to click on photos of admirable quality with minute details. The primary camera creates outstanding images with great amount of detail, sharpness, and dynamic range in the daylight. The colours look decent with minor oversaturation.
- Oneplus Nord
The OnePlus Nord is a mid-range smartphone that provides some pretty nice stuff for the price. You get a good camera and other flagship features bundled for under Rs. 25,000 in a nice looking smartphone, but the trouble is, they’re no longer the only company doing this, so it’s difficult to stand out for the Nord. It’s cheap, however, it looks fantastic and is full of features (especially the camera app), so the OnePlus Nord is an excellent option if you are looking for a fresh smartphone that offers all of this and is not too pricey. The Nord is described by OnePlus as a smartphone that gives you almost everything you might ask for, which is almost right.
- Vivo V20
With the Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G SoC, the OnePlus Nord is one of the first few phones using the chipset in India. This SoC is built on the 7mm process and has an integrated Qualcomm X52 5G modem. It offers improved processing and up to 30 percent faster graphics rendering capabilities than the Snapdragon 730G. The Vivo V20 is equipped with a triple rear camera configuration consisting of a main 64-megapixel (f/1.89) sensor, an 8-megapixel Wide-Angle/Macro/Bokeh f/2.2 aperture sensor and a 2-megapixel Mono f/2.4 aperture sensor. A 44MP camera with eye-AF is housed in the front. Which of these mobile phones under Rs. 25,000 hit your eye? Comment and tell us in the section below!
