By Digit | Price Updated on 28-Feb-2021

Smartphones under Rs 25,000 fall in the upper mid-range segment, and the best smartphones in this segment can go toe to toe with some of the high-end flagships not just in performance, but also in camera, software, design and the overall build quality. The best smartphone under Rs 25,000 offers a fast mid-range processor that excels in gaming and multitasking, ad-free software and multi-camera setups, along with an attractive design. So here are the top 10 best smartphones under Rs 25,000 in India.

The OnePlus Nord is priced just shy of under Rs 30,000, but the experience is just as smooth and fast as the OnePlus 8, a much more expensive smartphone. Thanks to the Snapdragon 765G under the hood, the phone performs without a hitch. There are also over 300 software optimisations in place, and combined with a 90Hz display, using the OnePlus Nord is a charm in itself. The camera output is also very similar to the OnePlus 8 which is definitely a good thing considering this is priced much cheaper. In all, the OnePlus Nord just works, and that's the reason why it's one of the best Android phones you can buy right now.

pros Pros

  • Compact form factor
  • OxygenOS UI offers smooth usability
  • HDR-supported display

cons Cons

  • Small screen not cut out for gaming
  • Snapdragon 765G only offers 10-12% improvement
  • Half-day battery

The Mi 10i is an excellent option in the sub Rs. 25,000 price segment, it strikes a good balance between overall performance/speed, features and camera quality. While the Snapdragon 750G processor makes it a 5G ready phone with good performance across applications, in terms of imaging, the Mi 10i overall does come out ahead of all the phones under Rs. 25,000. So, big wins on the performance and camera department. In our review, we did find the display to be a bit dull(low in brightness), under direct sunlight or bright outdoor environments. Which can be a factor when you consider phones above Rs. 25,000 offer sharper and brighter AMOLED technology based displays. However, with a better camera and a good design, once you overlook the slightly dull display, what you get a fairly competent package.

If best battery life and fast/smooth performance is your priority, the Samsung Galaxy F62 should be on top of your shortlist. The Samsung Galaxy F62 brings to the mid-range segment a flagship SoC and a kind of battery life that is only been seen in the M-series. We note that the Samsung Galaxy F62 has decent performance, going toe-to-toe with the best in the segment like the OnePlus Nord, with the battery life of almost two days giving it an edge over the existing competition. Where the Samsung Galaxy F62 skims out on segment-standard features is a high refresh rate display and the lack of HDR certification. It also comes with only a mono speaker, so using earphones or headphones while consuming content on the phone is highly recommended.

pros Pros

  • Good, reliable performance.
  • Excellent battery life.
  • Fast and accurate fingerprint sensor.

cons Cons

  • No HDR support.
  • Average cameras.
  • No rubber seal around SIM tray.
