With a segment-first 6,000 mAh battery supported by 15W fast charging, Samsung’s Galaxy M30s is one such phone that offers a massive battery output on a single charge. If you are a PUBG player, this phone will not heat much during your long sessions.
4. VIVO Z1 PRO SMARTPHONE
Your desire for a seamless, multitasking phone with a large screen size is set to ease with the Vivo Z1 Pro. Among one of the best smartphones under Rs. 15000 comes with a 4GB RAM along with an expandable 64GB internal memory. A massive battery of 5000mAh and its 32MP front shooter and triple rear cameras of 16MP+8MP+2MP makes this the best mobile in this price range. Qualcomm Snapdragon 712 AIE octa-core processor is the brain of the Vivo Z1 Pro.
I really liked its design, such a premium looking phone that to below Rs. 15,000. Also, the camera produced exceptionally good quality images. You get a trendy punch-hole design for the 32MP front camera in your budget. An efficient multi-tasker focussing on camera and ease of performance, Vivo Z1 Pro definitely lives up to the hype. But let me tell you this phone lacks Type-C port and HD streaming on various online streaming sites.
5.XIAOMI MI A3
The Xiaomi Mi A3 is a safe bet that comes with a 6.08-inch display and an octa-core processor. A 4GB RAM with 64GB internal storage and 4030mAh battery makes this high-end feature loaded phone quite attractive. It is great to see Rs 12,999 phone offering top-notch camera specs with a front camera with 32MP and rear camera with 48MP+8MP+2MP.
It’s a cheerful smartphone that comes with all the right features, and none of the hassle. For me, it’s not exciting or overly amazing, but it does the job. Despite tough competitors, I believe at Rs 12,999 the Xiaomi’s Mi A3 is a good deal. If you’re looking for an under Rs 15,000 smartphone that offers amazing design, excellent battery, and decent cameras you can check out Xiaomi’s Mi A3. However, if performance and good screen matter to you this might not be the right choice.
6. Samsung Galaxy M30
The Samsung Galaxy M30 is similar to its cousin, the Galaxy A30, in many ways, whether it is performance or camera quality. It’s a pretty good buy for Rs 14,990. The 6.4-inch Super AMOLED display on Galaxy M30 is dead gorgeous and an added bonus. The 4GB RAM + 64GB storage option with 5000mAh, this phone run on Exynos 7904 octa-core processor.
I find certain homogeneity in the design language of this series. Okay, fine. A notch might not be a new feature, but it points at Samsung finally fighting back for relevance in the entry-mid-range segment. The Samsung Galaxy M30 marks the top end of the Galaxy M series. The optimized, ad-free user experience is worth its weight in gold.
7. NOKIA 6.2
As we enter the new decade, buying a smartphone has become somewhat of an overwrought experience. An attractive phone with Hole Punch design, housing the 16MP front camera and has a triple camera setup sporting a 48MP+5MP+8MP. With 6GB RAM and expandable 128GB inbuilt storage that features a 6.39-inch full-HD+ full-screen display, Nokia 6.2 is powered by snapdragon 660 chipset.
The Nokia 6.2, the latest in the line of android one-powered budget devices, brings a relatively sharp knife to the gunfight of smartphone competition. Though it didn’t wow me but it gets the job done. Also, the quality semi-gloss plastic frame and glass rear panel give it a modern vibe. In such a price point Nokia 6.2 is not a bad choice to try. I find Nokia 6.2 comfortable and pleasant to handle.
