The smartphone market under Rs 20,000 is characterized by fierce competition. Every manufacturer wants their handset to be the best smartphone under 20K in 2022. The year has only just started, but the competition never ends. This healthy competition, however, is good for the ultimate consumers since we get to witness outstanding features at cut-throat pricing. Although, it can also become confusing at times. That is exactly why we are going to highlight the top 5 best smartphones under 20K in 2022 right now so that you don’t get confused by the plethora of choices out there. Whatever your needs are, any one or more smartphones on this list will cater to it for sure. Let’s see what each of them have to offer!
Redmi Note 11T 5G
Powered by the 5G enabled MediaTek Dimensity 810 chipset coupled with Mali-G57 CPU, this smartphone comes in 6GB/8GB RAM configurations with 64GB/128GB internal storage. It has a dual rear camera setup with a 50MP primary lens and an 8MP ultra-wide with 119 degrees field of view. Brownie points for skipping the useless quad-camera setup with a 2MP macro lens. There’s also a 16MP selfie camera housed in a punch-hole cutout. Although it is an IPS LCD display, it is FHD+ with a 90Hz refresh rate and a touch sampling rate of 240Hz which will definitely help while gaming.
Realme 8 Pro
The Realme 8 Pro offers a beautiful 6.4 inch super AMOLED display with an in-display fingerprint sensor that is rare in this price range. You can get this with either 6GB/8GB RAM configurations with 128GB storage on both; which is expandable via a microSD card slot. With a Snapdragon 720G CPU and Mali-G76 GPU, it can easily handle whatever you throw at it. Shipped with a 50W charger in the box, it takes the phone from 0-100% in just 47 minutes. The 16MP selfie shooter and the 108 MP rear camera both do a fantastic job in day-to-day performance. The only two drawbacks of this phone are the lack of 5G and 60Hz refresh rate.
Poco X3 Pro
If gaming is your topmost priority, then the best smartphone under 20K in 2022 for gaming still remains Poco X3 Pro. No smartphone even comes close to the raw power of the Snapdragon 860 SoC. Even if you are not a gamer, but a heavy user who wants his smartphone to be snappy at all times and future proof, Poco X3 is the way to go. 120Hz IPS LCD display, 64MP primary camera and a modest 5,160 mAh battery, this phone is a very good performer for the price and the features it offers.
Motorola Moto G60
If you are someone who wants a clean software experience that’s almost like stock Android, Motorola is the way to go. Not just this, the Moto G60 in itself is an excellent smartphone with stunning features such as a 108 MP primary camera, Snapdragon 732G and 120Hz HDR 10 display. The 6.8-inch screen size and the 6,000 mAh battery do make it a hefty one at 225g. Right now in India, you can get the 6GB RAM/128GB storage variant in two colours for Rs.17,999. Again, the only con is no 5G; which to be frank, is not much of a deal breaker for most people.
Xiaomi Redmi Note 10 Pro Max
Inevitably every new Xiaomi Redmi Note series tends to become a bestseller and go-to option for the best smartphone under 20K and the Note 10 Pro Max is no exception. It is really easy to recommend for everybody since it has everything one could possibly ask for at this price, besides 5G. We have the best in class FHD+ super AMOLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate, 108 MP primary camera and a capable Snapdragon 732G under the hood.
So, these were our picks for the best smartphones under 20K in 2022. We hope you got what you were looking for. Stay tuned to TechBurner for more awesome tech content.
