Best Phones Under 35000 in India (2020)

By Digit | Price Updated on 07-Apr-2020

There was a time when the number of smartphones available in the Rs 35,000 price segment was negligible, but that has steadily been changing over the last few years. For this kind of money, you’re not just getting a smartphone, but you’re getting a really good smartphone. Smartphones in this price range have now started to rival premium flagship smartphones in terms of performance and even some features. While the premium flagship devices still continue to the be “whole package,” smartphones in the Rs 35,000 range also offer some serious bang for the buck. If you’re in the market for a new flagship-grade smartphone, here are some of your choices.

The OG flagship killer, OnePlus’s devices have always set the benchmark for the value for money proposition when it comes to their smartphones, but the OnePlus 7T takes things even a step further. Powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855+ SoC, the 7T also sports a solid 8GB of LPDDR4 RAM and 128/256GB of UFS 3.0 storage. All of these components come together to do away with all possible performance bottlenecks, making the OnePlus 7T one of the fastest Android smartphones we’ve tested. Solid performance aside, the OnePlus 7T also offers a reliable camera stack, with a 1/2-inch sensor with 48 megapixels worth of resolution. The telephoto lens has an aperture of f/2.2 and the sensor complimenting it comes with 12 million pixels to capture your images in as much detail as possible. There is also a 16 megapixel ultra-wide camera, one of the very few in the market that comes with auto-focus, opening up a world of opportunity for the creative type. The OnePlus 7T may not be a gaming phone, but it will definitely win the gaming crowd over, and its definitely bound to impress almost everyone else too.

Google’s flagship smartphones don’t boast of much, but the one thing that they stand unrivalled for is the camera. So when the Google Pixel 3a XL came out, it caused quite a stir. A smartphone with mid-range specs, the Pixel 3a XL won the crowd over thanks to its camera, which is the same as the one on the Pixel 3 XL. If your topmost priority for a smartphone in the Rs 35,000 price range is the camera, then the Pixel 3a XL is a no-brainer. The performance on this smartphone isn’t bad by any shot though. It is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 670 chipset and 4GB of RAM. This may make it sound performer for most daily tasks, and enhancing its performance is the stock Android interface that Google is so well known for.

If display technology is something we give Samsung the credit for, then Oppo should be the one to be credited for the beautiful-looking phones that are all the rage right now. The Oppo Reno 10X Zoom is replete with a design makeover not just of the device but also of the logo, packaging and other branding. The display is wide and expansive, stretching 6.6-inches diagonally. It’s protected by Gorilla Glass 6 and there’s practically no bezels around the panel, which gives it the immersive experience when playing games or watching movies. The AMOLED panel has an full HD+ resolution and 100 percent DCI-P3 coverage. The Oppo Reno 10x Zoom is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor and comes with up to 8GB RAM and 256GB storage. That’s plenty of resources to handle almost everything you may throw at the phone. The Oppo Reno 10X Zoom runs on ColourOS 6.0, the nicer version of the OS so far from Oppo.

When we talk about Asus, its generally in reference of computer hardware or laptops. Seldom does the brand come into the picture when talking about smartphones, but lately, that narrative has been changing. The Asus 6Z is one of the smartphones that’s been helping the company change its fortunes. The Asus 6Z comes packing some of the best hardware, which includes a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 SoC and plenty of RAM, with choices between 6GB and 8GB. Asus offers the 6z with 64, 128 and 256GB storage options, but all of them also feature a dedicated microSD card slot so that you’re never running out of space. While this hardware combination allows the Asus 6z to perform reliably, perhaps its most interesting feature is the camera. The Asus 6z features a 48-megapixel primary camera and a 13-megapixel ultrawide camera. The camera unit sits on a rotating assembly, which means that when you need a front facing camera, the thing simply flips over, giving you the quality of the rear camera on the front. This is perhaps the best thing about the Asus 6z. In addition, the smartphone has an IPS LCD display with FHD+ resolution, one of the brightest in its segment. While the 6z manages to get the performance and battery life part right, the camera is what sets the phone apart is its camera, and if a stellar selfie camera is what you need, then this is the phone for you.

An unexpected release for the time, the Redmi K20 Pro finally filled a gap in Xiaomi’s portfolio; one of a flagship. Sure, its not a Xiaomi-branded flagship, but its still a flagship device from the Chinese smartphone giant. It is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor and comes in 6GB/8GB RAM variants. The Redmi K20 Pro boasts of a triple camera setup on the back and a 20MP pop-up shooter up front. The K20 Pro also packs an 8MP telephoto lens with 2X optical zoom. This is combined with a 13MP wide-angle camera and a 48MP Sony IMX586 primary sensor. It's pretty impressive, considering that this sort of configuration usually comes in phones costing a lot more. While the Redmi K20 Pro may seem to offer everything that every other smartphone in this segment offers, the K20 Pro does it at a much lower price than anyone else, and does it in serious style. Of all the smartphones in the Rs 35,000 segment (higher and lower even perhaps), the Redmi K20 Pro perhaps has the most eye-catching design. The Lava Red and Glacier Blue are particularly eye-catching, so if you do get this phone, get it in one of those two colours.

The only gaming phone to be a part of this list, the Nubia Red Magic 3s is one interesting smartphone. Nubia didn’t back down from the lukewarm reception of gaming smartphones and has continued to improve and evolve their offering. The Red Magic 3s offers some serious chops when it comes to not just gaming, but also everyday performance. The phone comes with an actual fan on the inside to keep the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855+ chipset cool during heavy usage. The Red Magic 3s aces all benchmarks in its category, an expected feat from a device like this one. The smartphone only offers a single camera, albeit a 48 megapixel one, using a Sony IMX586 sensor. If you need a gaming phone, or a smartphone with uncompromising performance under Rs 35,000, then this is the phone to consider.
