Redmi 9 Prime – Under Rs 10,000

Redmi 9 Prime Review 3

Due to chip shortage, mobile brands have increased smartphone prices and the same can be said for this smartphone too but as of now, the Redmi 9 Prime is by far the best smartphone you can buy for under Rs 10,000 in India.

The Redmi 9 Prime is powered by MediaTek Helio G80 which is still, a good chipset under 10k. Now, if you want a better chipset then you have to spend more than 10k.

It has a 13MP + 8MP + 5 MP + 2MP rear camera while there is an 8MP selfie shooter. The cameras are kind of average but considering the price tag, one should not complain.

The battery life is also good, there is a 5020 mAH battery with 18W charging support.

Overall Redmi 9 Prime is one of the best smartphones available for under Rs 10,000 in India.

Redmi Note 10S / Moto G51 5G – Under Rs 15,000

Is it Worth buying Redmi Note 10S

Now under Rs 15000, you have tons of options, and choosing one smartphone is kind of difficult, so I have selected two smartphones.

If you want a true 5G smartphone and if you’re okay with an LCD display then just go with Moto G51 5G (review). It has the best camera setup under 15k and it also has a powerful processor which will help a lot while gaming.

The Moto G51 5G is powered by Snapdragon 450+ and runs on Stock Android 11 while Redmi Note 10S (review) has MediaTek Helio G95 SoC and runs on MIUI 12 based on Android 11.

Overall, if you want an AMOLED display and if you can live with decent performance then the Redmi Note 10s is a good option otherwise, one should go with Motorola G51 5G for overall, better performance.

5000mAh battery (67W),

The POCO X4 Pro 5G has almost everything from a great display, solid battery life, good build, superfast charging, and even a powerful processor but it doesn’t have the cameras good cameras.

Now it’s not like the cameras are bad but compared to some other phones like RealMe 9 Pro 5G, POCO needs to work on cameras.

Still, the phone has better specs compared to RealMe 9 Pro 5G expect good cameras. I mean, this is the only phone that comes with a 120hz AMOLED display with 5G support.

If your budget is Rs 20,0000 and if you want the overall best smartphone then don’t look for anything else, you can consider the POCO X4 Pro 5G over Redmi Note 10 Pro & RealMe 9 Pro 5G.

RealMe 9 Pro Plus 5G – Under Rs 25,000

16MP Front Cameras
5000mAh battery (33W)

Let me just say this, RealMe 9 Pro Plus 5G has the best cameras under Rs 30,000 in India. It also has OIS support which is rare in the mid-budget price range.

The RealMe 9 Pro Plus 5G comes with a 50MP Sony IMX766 primary sensor (OIS) + 8MP ultra-wide lens, and a 2MP macro lens while there is a 16MP selfie shooter on the front.

To know more about cameras, you can read my RealMe Note 9 Pro Plus 5G review.

It also has MediaTek Dimensity 920 processor which works fine and it can handle almost all mobile games, so issue with performance too.

There is also a 6.40-inches 90Hz AMOLED display, 4500mAh battery with 60W charging support, stereo speakers, solid build, and 13 5G bands.

Overall, for the price of Rs 24,999, the RealMe Note 9 Pro Plus 5G is a solid smartphone and you will be more than happy with the performance, cameras, build, audio quality, and even battery life too.

IQOO Neo 6 5G – Under Rs 30,000

Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 5G
Android 12- Fun Touch 12
64MP + 8MP + 2MP Rear Cameras
16MP Front Camera
4,700mAh battery (80W)

I get that, the price could have been better but again, you also have to see the chip shortage and inflation too, so I feel, the pricing is not aggressive or overpriced.

Now, I don’t have to talk much about the Snapdragon 870 SoC because it’s a powerful processor, so there won’t be any kind of issue with the performance.

The Fun Touch OS might be a deal-breaker for some people but if you’re okay with the UI then there is nothing to worry about.

The cameras are not that bad, it’s not as good as RealMe 9 Pro Plus but still, consider the gaming smartphone, IQOO Neo 6 5G has good cameras.

By looking at the price and the specifications, iQOO Neo 6 5G is worth buying and it does offer some value at Rs 29999.

Motorola is back with a bang, the newly launched Motorola Edge 30 Pro is the best smartphone money can buy for under Rs 50,000 in India.

The cameras are also great, it takes good images, and also, the OIS helps a lot in videos and even in photos too.

The Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 is a powerful processor, with no issue with performance too while it runs on Android 12 and it will get OS updates for up to two years.

The battery lasts for the day while the 68W charger will take only 35 minutes to charge from 0% to 100% and the phone also has 15W wireless charging support.

Can’t say much about the display as this is by far the best you can get under 50k, by the way, it has a 144Hz 10-bit OLED display.

It also has 5G support and Motorola has added 13 5G bands which include n1, n3, n5, n7, n8, n20, n28, n38 n40, n41, n66, n77, and n78.

In short, if you’re looking powerful smartphone with a good camera and if your budget is Rs 49,999 then do consider the Motorola Edge 30 Pro, you will be more than happy with the smartphone.

iPhone 13 Pro – Under 1 Lakh

No price for guessing, iPhone 13 Pro is one of the best options under 1 Lakh. Also, if you’re not a fan of iPhones then you can also take look at Galaxy S22 Ultra which is also available at Rs 1 Lakh.

I don’t have to say much about the performance because the A15 bionic is powerful enough to handle everything. The cameras are also good and the build is also premium.

Again, iPhone 13 is pricy in India but if you can spend 1 lakh then iPhone would be a good option.
