In order to help you make the right decision, we have sorted through the latest mobile phones range of 8000 rupees to pen down the best budget phone under 8000 for your use case. This list of mobile phones under 8000 contains phones which offer the best performance, camera, looks and build for the price point.

1. SAMSUNG GALAXY M02

  • Screen Size6.5" (720 x 1600)
  • Camera13 + 2 | 5 MP
  • RAM2 GB
  • Battery5000 mAh

At Rs 7,999, you can get the Samsung Galaxy M02 smartphone with 3GB RAM and 32GB internal storage. You can get the 2GB RAM variant of this phone for Rs 7,499, however, we advise you to spend the extra Rs 500 since the 3GB RAM variant will handle most tasks and multitasking better than the 2GB RAM model. The phone houses a 6.5-inch display with a resolution of 720 x 1600 pixels, so the phone has a considerably larger screen size than its predecessor, the Samsung Galaxy M01. The Galaxy M02 is powered by the Mediatek MT6739W SoC. It has a quad-core CPU with a max clock speed of 1.5GHz. Now, if you’re looking for a bit more power, the Samsung Galaxy M01 is still a good option since it comes with the Snapdragon 439 SoC and an octa-core CPU. For cameras, the Galaxy M02 employs a dual camera setup with a 13MP main lens and a 2MP macro sensor. You can get a 5MP selfie camera. Housing a 5,000 mAh battery, the phone weighs 206g which is much heftier than its predecessor that had a smaller 4,000mAh battery. Unfortunately, there’s no fast charging. The Galaxy M02 is available in four colour variants which include Black, Blue, Gray and Red.
