Best mobile phones under 15000 june 2021 in india

Redmi Note 10 — 16.54 percent

Xiaomi introduced Redmi Note 10 (review) in March this year, but the phone continues to be the top searched mobile even in June. And there are good reasons for its popularity. The phone features an AMOLED display, which is the best-in-class for the price of Rs 12,999 in the market. It comes powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 678 SoC that delivers fast performance and efficient battery life. The cameras offer decent quality, and you also have 33W fast charging. And it’s intriguing to see the model getting more clicks than the Redmi Note 10S that came out a few months later.

  • 6.43-inch FHD+ Super AMOLED display
  • Snapdragon 678 SoC
  • Up to 6GB RAM, 128GB storage
  • 48MP + 8MP + 2MP + 2MP quad rear cameras
  • 13MP selfie camera
  • 5,000mAh battery, 33W fast-charging

POCO M3 — 13.72 percent

Launched in February this year in India, POCO M3 (review) continued to go strong even in June, taking up the second position in the list of most popular mobile phones under Rs 15,000. With more options available in the market in this price range, Its strong performance thanks to the Qualcomm Snapdragon 662 chipset, 48MP triple rear cameras, and a massive 6,000mAh battery have kept it relevant among readers despite the growing competition. However, it has a tough fight on its hands in the coming months as its price in India was hiked recently for the 6GB + 64GB and 6GB + 128GB variants, though a new, cheaper 4GB variant was launched too to compensate for this. A price increase of Rs 500 might not sound like a lot, but for buyers in India, it could be the difference between buying a phone with 64GB or 128GB internal storage.

  • 6.53-inch LCD screen
  • Snapdragon 662 processor
  • Up to 6GB RAM, 128GB storage
  • 48MP + 2MP + 2MP triple rear cameras

POCO M3 Pro 5G — 13.54 percent

The next POCO phone to grab attention is the POCO M3 Pro 5G (review). This model generated quite a lot of interest even before its launch, with reports suggesting the phone has sold in big numbers since then. What definitely works in its favour is that it supports 5G connectivity for Rs 13,999, thanks to MediaTek Dimensity 700 chipset under the hood. Buyers were surely attracted because of its price, the promise of better hardware, and long battery life.

Realme 8 (4G) — 12.86 percent

Realme 8 (review) launched way back in March. With not a lot of major smartphones launching since then, it is not surprising to see the phone make its way into the top 5 among the most popular mobile phones under Rs 15,000 in June 2021. Of course, the smartphone’s continued popularity in June may have something to do with the small price cut it received in May. One of the many things that worked for buyers is the use of the AMOLED panel, along with the impressive 64MP quad cameras at the back. For Rs 13,999, you got the 4GB RAM model and 128GB storage, and by adding another Rs 1,000 to the budget, you could grab the 6GB + 128GB variant.

  • 6.4-inch FHD+ Super AMOLED screen
  • MediaTek Helio G95 SoC
  • Up to 8GB RAM, 128GB storage
  • 64MP + 8MP + 2MP + 2MP quad cameras

Samsung Galaxy M32 — 10.94 percent

Samsung finally has a strong contender in the sub-Rs 15,000 segment with the launch of Galaxy M32 (review). The company calls it the binge monster, primarily because of its big Full HD+ AMOLED display that supports 90Hz refresh rate and its massive 6,000mAh battery. The Samsung M-series enjoys a pretty good following in the market, so it was obvious that people would seek all the details about the Galaxy M32, something that has been backed by our data for June 2021.

Vivo Y20 — 7.84 percent

Vivo Y20 did not even launch in 2021 yet its name appears on our search list which suggests people are still looking to buy the phone or know more about it. With a starting price of 12,990, one would assume that buyers have plenty of other choices to look at. But the Vivo Y20 has takers in the market, which isn’t too surprising considering the strong hold the brand has in the offline market. It’s possible that people get their research done online and then buy the phone from the offline market.

Simply because of its lower price tag which offers better value and in a market like India, price becomes a crucial factor in deciding purchases. It’s likely that the Redmi Note 10S searches were done to determine if the new model offers more than the other options in the series.

Realme Narzo 20 — 5.85 percent

Narzo 20 (review) from Realme is a budget phone that came out in September last year but somehow people are still curious about the device. Its price tag of Rs 10,499 might have something to do with that. For this price, you get a large Full HD+ screen which is impressive, along with a powerful MediaTek Helio G85 chipset in tow. The primary 48MP camera manages to punch above its weight as well, and, finally, the 6,000mAh battery means you do not hunt for a charger anytime soon after a full charge.

  • MediaTek Helio G95 chipset
  • 4GB RAM, up to 128GB storage
  • 48MP + 8MP + 2MP triple rear cameras

OPPO A54 — 5.69 percent

OPPO A54 came out in April this year, and people have been less interested in knowing more about this phone. The company launched it for Rs 13,490, which was considered high considering the features it offers. And this month, the OPPO A54 (review) price got hiked by up to Rs 1,000, with the base model now starting at Rs 13,990. The easy availability of the phone in the offline retail market could be one of the reasons for its popularity. It’s hard to see any other reason besides that for people to search for this phone when there are plenty of other phones that offer better hardware and features for similar or lower prices.

  • MediaTek Helio P35 processor

Realme 8 5G — 5.55 percent

The last model wrapping up the top 10 most searched mobile phones under Rs 15,000 on 91mobiles is Realme 8 5G (review). Realme introduced the 5G variant of Realme 8 in April, priced at Rs 14,999, and that itself should have been enough to grab people’s attention. But as you can see here, even today, more people want to search for the 4G variant of Realme 8 instead of this one. We can attribute that to the popularity of POCO M3 Pro 5G too since it offers similar features in a better-looking package.

  • Dimensity 700 SoC
  • Up to 8GB RAM, 128GB storage
