Redmi Note 10 Pro Price in India

Redmi Note 10 Pro and Pro Max don’t have a huge difference that means, it’s better to save some money by going with Redmi Note 10 Pro. Also, the phone doesn’t have the 5G support, so you have to use 4G even when 5G launches in India.

The phone is powered by new Snapdragon 732G Processor which is better then Snapdragon 720G which was present on Redmi Note 9 Pro & Max versions. Overall, there won’t be any kind of problem while paying games because the hone has 120Hz AMOELD display which is huge as the phone is priced at only 15k.

It also has a 5,020 mAh battery with 33W fast charging support and a 64MP quad-camera setup. The Redmi Note 10 Pro & Max has everything that you’re looking for expect 5G.

RealMe X7

RealMe X7 Review

5G is going to be future, so it’s better to buy 5G phone then 4G phone. The RealMe X7 is powered by MediaTek Dimensity 800U Processor which has 5G support that means if 5G launches in India then you will able to use it. It also has massive 50W fast charging support.

The MediaTek Dimensity 800U Processor will give you best performance when it’s come to gaming. So you want true budget gaming smartphone and won’t use the camera a lot then I think RealMe X7 is the best option to buy at 20k, just for gaming.RealMe has also added gaming mode too which will help you a lot while you game on RealMe X7.

Considering the price tag, RealMe is offering a lot. So, if your budget is 20k and if you’re looking for 5G phone then this could be a good option or you can also add 1k more and get Mi 10i 5G (review) but still if you can’t add 1k extra to your budget then still, RealMe X7 (review) also a good phone.

Motorola G 5G

Motorola G 5G Price in India

Motorola G 5G is the best to phone to get under Rs 20,000 as the comes with 5G support. The phone is powered by powerful Snapdragon 750G Processor and it’s running on Android 10 OS.

The phone has triple rear camera setup festering 48 MP Primary Sensor + 8 MP Ultra-Wide Lens + 2 MP Depth while there is 16MP selfie shooter. The Moto G 5G is priced at Rs 20,999 but it’s sold at around Rs 19,999.

It has the best specification but if you want the best cameras then this won’t be a great option but it’s priced at 20k, so can’t expect everything but still, if you want camera-centric smartphone then Moto G 5G is not the best option for you. Also, read my Moto G 5G review, if you’re interested in this phone.

POCO X3 Price in India

POCO X3 is power pack smartphone which has massive 6,000 mAh battery, 120Hz screen refresh rate, powerful Snapdragon 732G Processor and it’s priced at Rs 16,999. This is the best phone if you don’t want to spend 20k on the smartphone.

It also has great camera and you can take good selfie as the phone has 20MP front cameras. It also support 33W fast charging support.

As I have said in POCO X3 review,

“POCO X3 is power pack smartphone, it has great camera setup, powerful processor, massive battery life, new design, fast charging support and no ads in the UI. So if your budget is under Rs 20,000 and if you want the best smartphone then POCO X3 is a great option to go with”

RealMe 7 Pro

RealMe 7 Pro price in India

RealMe 6 Pro and Realme 7 Pro, both the phones has the same Snapdragon 720G Processor which is not a great chip to buy 20k but if you want best cameras at 20k then don’t look for anything else, Realme 7 Pro is the way go.

The phone also has 4,500 mAh battery which is not the massive battery but it supports up to 65W fast charging support which is huge because this is a budget smartphone. It can be charged 0% to 100% in 34 Minutes.

As I have said in RealMe 7 Pro Review, if you can live with good performance then this is the best option but if you want a balanced phone then Moto G 5G is way to go.

Redmi Note 9 Pro Max

Redmi Note 9 Pro Max Price in India

Redmi Note 9 Pro Max was launched at Rs 18,999 in India but now it’s available at Rs 16,999 for 6GB of Ram and 64GB storage. The phone is running on MIUI 12 which has ads in the UI, so you have to live with ads even if you pay 17k.

It has quad-camera setup featuring 64MP Primary + 8MP Ultra-Wide + 5MP Marco + 2 MP Depth while there is 32MP selfie shooter. There is nothing to worry about the camera but I’m not sure about performance.

I have used Redmi Note 9 Pro which has the same Snapdragon 720G and that didn’t give me the best performance. So Redmi Note 9 Pro Max (review) won’t give the best performance but if you want premium looks, fast charging support, good cameras but if you can live with good performance then this could be your phone.

Motorola One Fusion Plus

Motorola One Fusion Plus  Price in India

I was so happy when Motorola One Fusion Plus launched in India because the phone had the best specification but after I used it, I feel, Motorola didn’t deliver. It has the best processor, best build, best display, fast charging support but when it comes to cameras, there is nothing to look at.

The phone is priced at Rs 16,999 for 6GB of Ram and 128GB storage. Motorola One Fusion Plus is powered by Snapdragon 730G SoC and it’s running on Stock Android 10.

Overall, if you can live to decent camera setup then Moto One Fusion Plus (review) is the best phone as it doesn’t have ads in the UI.

Samsung Galaxy M31s

Galaxy M31s Price in India

First thing first, I don’t recommend Galaxy M31s to anyone as it’s not worth buying at 20k. The phone has old Exynos 9611 Processor and it’s running on OneUI based on Android 10.

The phone does have good camera setup, I mean, it has best cameras then RealMe 7 Pro but when it’s come to the performance, everything changes. Exynos 9611 is worth SoC to give in a smartphone in 2020. Galaxy M31s won’t able to handle PUBG Mobile or any other game very well.

In short, if you want a non-Chinese smartphone or just don’t want to buy any other brand mobile then Galaxy M31s is the phone non-Chinese phone you can buy in India below 20k. For in-depth, read this, you will get all the answers.

Those are some of the best mobile phones you can buy Under Rs 20,000 in India, there are tons of other phones available below 20k but those phones are not worth buying.

I will add, new phones from time to time, if I feel, it’s worth buying. I will add all the phone down below, so you want to check out then feel free to do it. Now, do let me know which one you liked the most.
