    Rs.11,999

    Expert comment:   The Realme Narzo 50 is powerful device under the Rs 15,000 bracket with good camera hardware and a lasting battery life. It runs on MediaTek's Helio G96 platform which can be considered optimum for gaming. In terms of the display, you are provided with smooth 120Hz refresh rate and a FHD+ resolution. The 50MP camera handles the primary image shooting capabilties while on the front a handy 16MP sensor can be found.

    Realme 9 5G price in India
    + Compare
    Rs.15,689

    Expert comment:   5G has become extremely accessible in the budget segment thanks to the Realme 9 5G. It has the processing prowess one generally assosciates from the former OPPO sub-brand thanks to the Dimensity 810 SoC. The 6.5-inch LCD panel can refresh at 90Hz and provides that extra touch of smoothness while scrolling. At 18W of fast charging the Realme 9 5G also juices up the regular 5,000mAh battery in a jiffy. We had pointed in our review that low-light shots from the device are not that great but the 48MP primary sensor clicks decent daylight images.

    Rs.14,190

    Expert comment:   Moto G40 Fusion is one of the best budget phones from Motorola in a really long time and the handset really shines through in some key areas. Whether you want a capable processor, high refresh rate display, or a massive battery capacity, this phone pretty much offers it all. The camera performance is impressive for the price range and the only department where you might find this phone to be underwhelming would be the design and build quality. In other words, if you want a phone that does a no-nonsense job, Moto G40 Fusion is a good option for you.

    Rs.12,951

    Expert comment:   The Realme 9i kicks of the former OPPO sub-brand's conquest of the under Rs 15,000 market in 2022. Packing in a Qualcomm Snapdragon 680, the device performs as per expectations and the 6GB RAM helps matters greatly. On the camera front, the 50MP primary shooter gets in a supreme daylight shots while the macro and ultra-wide sensors act as suppoting cast. The 90Hz IPS LCD screen is vivid in nature while the 5,000mAh battery allows the phone to last for a sizeable amount of time.

    Xiaomi Redmi Note 10T price in India

    Rs.12,990

    Expert comment:   With 5G support and well-rounded specs, the Redmi Note 10T is one of the predictable entries on the list. While Redmi phones are no longer the standout phones in this price category, there is no denying the fact that the brand still knows the features that matter the most to people in this price range. With decent camera sensors and battery life, the Redmi Note 10T is a good entry point for someone who wants to buy a 5G phone but doesn't want to spend too much on the purchase. However, the phone doesn't excel in any particular department in comparison with its competitors.

    Expert comment:   Samsung Galaxy M32 carries on the M-series legacy and brings along similar features to its predecessors but offers a better camera performance, a more powerful processor, and a high refresh rate FHD+ AMOLED display. With a 20MP selfie camera, the phone manages to offer good image quality while shooting from the front-facing sensor as well.

    Rs.14,999

    Expert comment:   Realme 7 builds up on the great foundation laid by Realme 6 of offering high refresh rate display, tagged with some impressive features, for an affordable price. The handset comes with some really capable cameras and is fuelled by a really powerful and capable processor setup as well. The battery life is decent as usual and you would most likely be satisfied by the build quality as well. Overall, you cannot go wrong with this one, unless you do not like the custom UI offered with Realme phones.

    Xiaomi Redmi 10 Prime price in India
    + Compare
    Rs.11,999

    Expert comment:   Redmi 10 Prime is on this list because of three main reasons. First, the phone packs a powerful processor that will breeze past any app or game that you throw at it. Second, the phone offers a really good display panel (with the added benefit of high refresh rate) that is great for multimedia viewing. Third, the battery life offered by the phone is extremely impressive and one of the best in this segment. If you ask us why you shouldn't buy this phone, simple answer would be its camera performance, which is rather underwhelming.

    Expert comment:   The Moto G51 5G keeps in line with Motorola's clean stock Android philosophy while also making sure that other aspects of the device are up to the mark.

    Expert comment:   Samsung Galaxy F41 has all the qualities of a great mid-range phone and the handset definitely makes a strong case for itself to be the top contender on the list. With a massive 6,000mAh battery, a 32MP selfie camera, excellent Super AMOLED display, and support for fast charging. This means that even outside of the basic set of specs, the handset doesn't fail to impress. If you don't like face unlock, there is a fingerprint sensor on the phone as well. Overall, Galaxy F41 is an easy to recommend phone as it gets most things right.

    Rs.11,998

    Expert comment:   If we were to choose the best budget handset from Samsung so far this year, we will have to go with the Galaxy M21 2021. To name some of the best features of the smartphone, it comes with a brilliant FHD+ Super AMOLED display, easy to use user interface, and long-lasting battery life. While you don't get a high refresh rate display here, the quality of the panel definitely makes up for it. In terms of optics, the phone's performance isn't as impressive as other departments but it isn't a dealbreaker either. If you want a Samsung phone at a pocket-friendly price, this should be it.

    Expert comment:   Xiaomi's Redmi Note 10S has been positioned by the brand between the Redmi Note 10 Pro and the Redmi Note 10. As you might have guessed, the phone tries to play a balancing act between the price tag and the features it offers. The handset packs a powerful chipset, which will be able to handle any app you throw at it with ease, has an immersive AMOLED panel, and offers good optics. If you are not planning to go the extra mile for the Pro variant, Redmi Note 10S is one of the best mid-rangers you can buy in this price segment.

    Expert comment:   While budget phones have been getting better with each passing year, Narzo 30 definitely manages to stand apart in the crowd of affordable mid-rangers. The handset comes with a distinct design, packs a powerful processor, and offers an FHD+ display, which is surprisingly still missing on several phones in this price range. While the Narzo series faces tough competition from some Xiaomi phones, with features like 90Hz display refresh rate and decent battery life, Narzo 30 holds on his own really well.
