It seems to be a great time for smartphone buyers in India, as there are so many compelling options to choose from. Xiaomi has been a player in the under Rs 15,000 category for a very long time and now it has been joined by the likes of Realme, Asus and Honor. So what phones are actually worth buying if you’re looking for the best phones under 15,000 ? Here are the top picks.
Asus ZenFone Max Pro M1
The Asus ZenFone Max Pro M1 may have a really big name for a smartphone, but also has some of the best features you can find on a budget device. This includes a massive 5,000 mAh battery which will most likely last you the entire day. Additionally, the ZenFone Max Pro M1 also offers the best specs for a smartphone – which starts for a price of 10,990, such as the latest Snapdragon 636 processor.
Redmi Note 5 Pro
The Redmi Note 5 Pro is actually a very good smartphone that competes with the ZenFone Max Pro M1 in terms of pricing and specs. In fact, Xiaomi sold 3 lakhs of these within minutes. The Note 5 Pro also sports a very big battery at 4,000 mAh and this means that it will also last long enough for you to get through your day with plenty of juice left. As was the case with the ZenFone Max Pro M1, the Redmi Note 5 Pro also has a Snapdragon 636 processor and it comes with wide variety of storage options which go up to 6 GB RAM plus 128 GB storage. However, for people with a budget under Rs 15,000 should stick with the 4 GB RAM plus 64 GB storage.
This former sub-brand of Oppo has recently been making a lot of waves with its aggressive pricing strategy in the sub-Rs 15,000 market. As a matter of fact, the base variant of the Realme 1 actually has been part of the sub-Rs 10,000 market. The phone packs in a 3,500 mAh battery and is powered by the Helio P60 chipset from MediaTek. Apart from that the phone also has a face unlock mechanism that is quite fast and accurate. We love the Solar Red color!
If you like bigger aspect ratio displays then the Honor 9N is definitely one to consider. The phone happens to be a highly rated device under the Rs 15,000 and also has a dual-camera system which can be compared to the likes of the Mi A2. The phone runs on the Kirin 660 chipset which can be considered as somewhat of mid-range chipset, however, the phone still functions fine. The phone comes with 4 GB of RAM plus 64 GB of internal storage for a price of Rs 13,999.
All of these devices manage to offer good performance despite being on a budget. If you’re looking for mid-range performance that doesn’t compromise too much, any of these make for ideal choices. And you can lower your net costs even more by selling your used smartphone on Cashify before you switch.
