Top 5 smartphones under Rs 20,000 (August 2019)
With companies constantly trying to put an insane number of features into their value for money offerings, the sub-Rs 20,000 segment has undoubtedly become the hottest smartphone space in India. Take a look at Dynamic District’s top 5 picks from this segment.
- Vivo Z1 Pro
Generally, Vivo doesn’t make stellar value for money phones, but the Z1 Pro is an exception. It has got a powerful Snapdragon 712 SoC, 4/ 6GB of RAM, triple rear cameras, and a massive 5,000mAh battery with fast charging. It’s also the cheapest phone with a hole punch display. All this at a starting price of Rs 14,990 makes it an irresistible deal!
Price range: Rs 14,990-17,990
- Realme X
The Realme X brings a truly bezel-less AMOLED display, an in-display fingerprint scanner, 20W VOOC fast charging, and a motorised pop-up selfie shooter all for under Rs 17,000. It’s Snapdragon 710 SoC is quite powerful and the 48MP primary camera can take some pretty nice photographs as well.
Price range: 16,999-19,999
- Oppo K3
The Oppo K3 is Realme X’s twin, which is hardly surprising since Realme is an Oppo spinoff. It comes with almost the same specs as its Realme sibling, but its primary camera uses the last-generation 16MP sensor as opposed to the Realme’s 48MP one. However, to make up for that, the K3 offers 6GB of RAM as the base option versus the Realme X’s 4GB.
Price range: 16,990-19,990
- Poco F1
The Xiaomi Poco F1 still packs a lot of punch with its Snapdragon 845 SoC. Obviously, its design and camera performance may not be top-notch by 2019 standards, but heavy gamers will still appreciate the kind of horsepower it offers. Plus, MIUI on this phone is ad-free!
Price range: 17,999-22,999
- Redmi Note 7 Pro
The Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 Pro has undoubtedly been the hottest budget phone for the first half of 2019. At a starting price of under Rs 14,000, it offers things like a Snapdragon 675 SoC, a 48MP primary camera, and a big 4,000mAh battery (with optional fast charging). While MIUI’s ads might be a bit annoying for some, the Note 7 Pro is still a fantastic value for money offering.
Price range: 13,999-16,999
