Best Phones under 15000
The sub-Rs.15,000 smartphones segment is one that is fiercely competitive in India. Large, high-quality displays, all-day battery life, quick charging, up-to-date software, and cameras that are suitable for casual usage are all available. You can also expect bonus features such as a display with a high refresh rate, stereo speakers, 5G, and splash resistance in this segment.
Here we tell you about some of the best phones under Rs. 15,000 that you can buy in India right now.
The Moto G52 is designed for people who do not intend to jump on the 5G bandwagon right away and are more concerned with value. The G52 is designed for entertainment and includes a OLED display with a 90Hz refresh rate and dual speakers with Dolby Atmos support. The Qualcomm Snapdragon 680 SoC in it is not exactly a powerhouse, but it can handle daily work and light gaming admirably, partly thanks to Motorola’s near-stock Android OS. The phone also has a huge 5000mAh battery and a 33W charger included in the box. At a starting price of Rs. 14,499, the G52 offers good value.
Infinix Hot 11S
For those on a tight budget, the Infinix Hot 11S is a smartphone with a focus on gaming. It has a relatively powerful Mediatek Hello G88 SoC that can handle most games well enough, and a 90hz refresh rate display. The design of the body feels a little cheap and it tends to attract plenty of fingerprints. The phone is also a little awkward to use with one hand due to its large size. The stereo speakers are loud enough, the battery life is excellent and there’s 18W fast charging. The Infinix Hot 11S could be a good option for people looking for a good gaming experience on a budget, especially at its current starting price of Rs.9,499.
Redmi 10 Prime
The Redmi 10 Prime features a sizable 6.5-inch full-HD+ display with a 90Hz refresh rate and a neat design. It sports a polycarbonate frame, a quad-camera setup at the rear, and a side-mounted fingerprint scanner. It is powered by a MediaTek Helio G88 SoC and features a 6,000mAh battery with 18W fast charging. It also boasts of a 50-megapixel primary camera, however performance even in daylight is average and the cameras really struggle in low light. Overall, the Redmi 10 Prime offers good value at a starting price of Rs.11,449.
Realme Narzo 30 5G
The Realme Narzo 30 5G starts at Rs. 14,999 and is a slim 5G smartphone with a good 90Hz refresh rate display, long battery life, and manageable gaming performance. The cameras are a little underwhelming for both stills and video, and sadly, there is no ultra-wide camera. Realme UI has several preinstalled apps that may bombard you with unsolicited notifications. The charging speed is not the quickest but if you want 5G and are on a tight budget, the Narzo 30 5G is a phone to consider.
Samsung Galaxy F22
The Samsung Galaxy F22, priced at around Rs.11,999 for 4GB of RAM and 64GB of Storage, is a basic budget smartphone with strong battery life. It sports a brilliant 6.4-inch 90Hz HD+ Super AMOLED display and a massive 6,000mAh battery, but everything else takes a bit of a back seat. The large battery easily lasts two full days, however charging takes a lengthy time. The phone’s camera performance is acceptable for its class, and the daytime video quality is good despite the 1080p limitation. The Galaxy F22’s design is best defined as functional, with a Gorilla Glass 5 display and a plastic frame. If a vibrant display and long battery life are what matter most to you, the Galaxy F22 would be a good choice.
Redmi Note 10S
The Redmi Note 10S is a slightly more powerful version of the Redmi Note 10. It features a 6.43-inch AMOLED display protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 3. The Redmi Note 10S has stereo speakers and an infrared emitter, both of which are uncommon features in low-cost smartphones. Prices start at Rs.14,999 for 6GB of RAM and 128GB of Storage. The Note 10S is powered by a MediaTek Helio G95 SoC and runs MIUI 12. It does come with a number of preinstalled apps that occasionally send out spammy notifications which is something you’ll have to deal with. The phone also features a 5,000mAh battery and comes with a 33W charger.
