Top 5 Smartphones Under Rs.15,000
1. Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 Pro
Redmi Note 7 Pro is the latest model launched by Xiaomi this month. It has 6.3 inches (1080 x 2340 pixels) touch screen with water drop notch camera. It has 13 megapixels front camera and 48 + 5 megapixels rear camera. Smartphone contains 2 GHz Octa-core processor which is really fast and better than its predecessor Note 6 Pro.
It comes with latest MIUI which is very user friendly. Its battery capacity is of 4000 mAh which plays important role in any smartphone’s popularity. Its Indian price is Rs. 13,999 only.
2. Samsung Galaxy M20
The Samsung Galaxy M20 (Review) is the newest phone on this list and with good reason. It supports a new design language with a large, clear and clear screen that is probably the highlight of this phone. The battery life is excellent and the variant we recommend also includes 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage space, which will satisfy those who love their specifications.
However, the phone heats up slightly when stressed and has the habit of being flooded with too many promotional notifications. The performance of the camera also leaves room for improvement.
3. Asus ZenFone Max Pro M2
Asus has had some non-exceptional years, but the company is again in full in 2018. After an impressive show with ZenFone Max Pro M1 earlier this year, the Taiwanese manufacturer followed an equally impressive ZenFone Max Pro M2 (Review ) phone. In our review, we found that the phone offers optimal performance and excellent battery life. The camera is a bit overwhelming, so for fans of photography, it will be ideal to look for other options in the segment, such as the Realme 2 Pro. On the front of the software, the Max M2 is currently running on Android 8.1 Oreo with serial interface and is scheduled to receive the Pie update in January 2019.
Asus India sells three phone variants: 3 GB of RAM / 32 GB of memory for Rs. 12,999, 4 GB / 64 GB of RAM for INR 14,999 and 6 GB of RAM / 64 GB for Rs. 16,999 – in the country.
4. Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 Pro
The latest Redmi Note 6 Pro from Xiaomi (Review) outperforms the Redmi Note 5 Pro, but offers only some updates in terms of general specifications and design elements. The 19 “screen from 9 to 6.2 inches is larger and brighter than its predecessor, and the cameras have also been updated, with dual camera configurations on both the front and back.
We believe that an update is needed as the competition has grown, with Nokia 6.1 Plus and Asus ZenFone Max Pro M1. However, MIUI 10 is full of advertising and is based on the Android Oreo dated 8.1. While the phone comes with Quick Charge 3.0 support, only a 10W charger is included in the package.
The basic version of Redmi Note 6 Pro with 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of memory is a good compromise. However, it is better to opt for other smartphones if you have in mind the most expensive variant of 6 GB of RAM / 64 GB of memory.
5. Motorola One Power
Motorola’s first Android One smartphone in India offers a stellar battery life, a clean software package with no exaggerated and agile performance for the Snapdragon 636 SoC and a high-quality glass design. The smartphone is also guaranteed by at least two years of software updates. However, not everything is peaceful. The performance of the camera in low light conditions could be better and the lack of dual VoLTE 4G could be a problem for some.
Motorola One Power (Review) simplifies things with a single variant of storage of 6 GB RAM / 64 GB that has a price of Rs. 14.999, so it is one of our best options at Rs. 15,000.
I hope you like the list of smartphones under Rs. 15000. If you think there should be any other phone in the list also the let us know in comments!
