There are dozens of smartphones available in India which are under Rs. 30000. Some companies have more than one smartphone in that segment which you would want to buy. And as is always the case, a number of options also create a ton of confusion. Which smartphone should you buy under Rs. 30000? So, to reduce that confusion I have come with a list of five smartphones that you should consider if you are looking for a smartphone under Rs. 30000.
But before we start, let me just make one thing clear. I am not that type of person who can justify Google pixel 4A as a valid option at this price. That phone has an underpowered chipset and an extremely poor battery. The only reason you might have for buying it is its camera. Which for me, personally isn’t enough to spend 30K on.
#1 Realme X3 Superzoom
Realme X3 SuperZoom as the name suggests has a periscopic camera lens that supports up to 60X zoom range. It has a very powerful Snapdragon 855+ chipset and is available with up to 12GB Ram and 256GB of storage. Apart from the periscopic lens, it also has a 64MP lens and two other additional cameras. The front camera is 32MP + 8MP. It has a 4200mAh battery and of course, being a Realme, it comes with a fast charger in the box. This one has a 30W charger. The only major gripe that I have with this phone is that it doesn’t have an AMOLED display. But to make it up, Realme provides 120hz refresh rate.
#2 Asus 6Z
You might not remember what this mobile looks like or what features it has. But, I am willing to bet that you do remember that crazy flip camera that it flexes. The 48MP + 13MP rear camera flips and becomes your selfie camera. You can also do amazing panoramic shots with it. But, Asus has made sure to give some more features to it to lure buyers. It has a Snapdragon 855 chipset and up to 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. It has a 5000mAh battery and the Ui of Asus is very minimalistic too. But the only downside with it is that just like the Realme this has an LCD panel too. If that’s not a dealbreaker for you, then you should definitely consider this phone.
#3 OnePlus Nord

With the OnePlus Nord, the company went back to its root of being a flagship killer. It may not have an 8 series chipset but the Snapdragon 765G is a pretty capable chipset too. The mobile has four rear cameras and the main lens is a 48MP one. The front camera is f 32MP and also has an additional 8MP lens for more flexibility. The battery is of just 4115mAh capacity, but the 30W charger does make up for it.
#4 Xiaomi Mi 10i

Xiaomi Mi 10i might just be the most beautiful device you have ever seen. The colour contrast used by Xiaomi looks beautiful and the circular camera bump doesn’t seem out of place. The processor, namely Snapdragon 750G might not be the best in the market but it will get most of the daily tasks done at a nice speed. It has a 120Hz refresh rate screen, but unfortunately, the panel is LCD and not AMOLED. The main camera lens at the rear is a whopping 108MP lens which does take some really good photos. The device also has a big battery of 4820mAh capacity.
#5 Realme X7 Pro

Realme X7 Pro is the best device that the company offers under Rs. 30000. The device has a 6.55-inch AMOLED display with a 120hz refresh rate. It is powered by Mediatek’s flagship Dimensity 1000+ chipset. It houses a 4500mAh battery and comes with a 65W charger. On the camera front, it has a 64MP main sensor at the rear and a 32MP selfie camera up front. This mobile according to me is the best pick under Rs. 30000
So, this was the list guys. I hope I have been able to provide you with some great options to spend your hard-earned money on. Do tell us in the comments section, what you feel is the best mobile under Rs. 30000.
