BEST MOBILE PHONES UNDER 15000 IN INDIA

The under Rs.15,000 price point is crucial to the Indian smartphone industry since it is accessible to a lot of people. Over the years we have seen multiple manufacturers attempting to capture this segment by offering better cameras, faster processors, and better batteries. In order to be the best in this segment, manufacturers have flooded the sub-Rs. 15,000 price segment with a range of good smartphones.

The Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 which was earlier exclusive to smartphones above Rs. 20,000 is now available under Rs. 15,000. You can also find mightier processors like the Qualcomm Snapdragon 675, and MediaTek Helio P70 at this price point, giving users powerful hardware at a bargain price.

Good camera technology has also trickled down to the sub Rs. 15,000 segment over the years giving people the option to capture good photos without paying a bomb for flagship devices. Some of the recent smartphones we have seen in this price point pack in as much as a 48-megapixel sensor. With so many options in the market, picking up a smartphone isn’t easy. But we’ve put together a list of the best phones under Rs. 15,000 for you. As usual, we've restricted ourselves to phones that have fared well in our review process.

Motorola Moto G52 Specifications
Display 6.60-inch, 1080x2400 pixels
Processor Qualcomm Snapdragon 680
RAM 4GB
Storage 64GB
Battery Capacity 5000mAh
Rear Camera 50MP + 8MP + 2MP
Front Camera 16MP

The Moto G51 is Motorola’s budget 5G smartphone and is the second 5G smartphone in the G series after Moto G 5G. Motorola’s budget 5G smartphone may have arrived quite late in 2021, but it has a few things going for it that make it special.

It has a unibody design that’s made of polycarbonate and is quite heavy at 208g, but it also comes with an IP52 rating against dust and water, which the competition does not offer.

Software performance is smooth and fluid and most of this is down to the choice of near-stock Android software, with a few Motorola-specific customisations. The 120Hz high refresh rate display also plays a part in making the software experience appear quite fluid.

Gaming performance is a bit disappointing, and this is an area where the competition performs better. There’s three rear-facing cameras and they do a decent job with daylight photos but perform poorly in low light.

Battery life is quite good and lasts about a day and half with regular use. The phone comes with a 20W charger in the box, which takes about two hours to charge the smartphone to 100 percent.

Motorola Moto G51 Specifications
Display 6.80-inch, 1080x2400 pixels
Processor Qualcomm Snapdragon 480+
RAM 4GB
Storage 64GB
Battery Capacity 5000mAh
Rear Camera 50MP + 8MP + 2MP
Front Camera 13MP

The Moto G31 tries to fill the shoes of its predecessor the Moto G30 but falls a bit short of expectations. This budget Moto has a MediaTek Helio G85 processor, an AMOLED display, and IPX2 rating for dust and water resistance.

Its unibody design looks quite like that of the Moto G30 and it is made of polycarbonate but does not feel cheap. The new AMOLED display is a vast improvement over the LCD panel on the G30 but features a standard 60Hz screen refresh rate.

There’s a near-stock version of Android 11 along with the usual Moto gestures. Performance is average for a budget smartphone in this price segment, and there are phones that are priced similarly but offer better hardware.

Battery life is good and this phone can last a day and half on a single charge. Daylight photos taken with the primary camera came out fine, but the ultra-wide one performed poorly. Low-light imaging was quite disappointing overall.

Display 6.40-inch, 1080x2400 pixels
Processor MediaTek Helio G85
RAM 4GB
Storage 64GB
Battery Capacity 5000mAh
Rear Camera 50MP + 8MP + 2MP
Front Camera 13MP

The Infinix Hot 11S is a gamer-focussed smartphone for those on a tight budget. It offers a high-refresh-rate display that gamers will appreciate, and a decent budget SoC that’s capable of some mid-level gaming.

While the plastic body looks elegant, it has a glossy coating which feels cheap and is a smudge magnet. The display on the other hand is quite good at resisting fingerprints. The large display makes this phone a bit unwieldy, and one-handed use is impossible.

The large display is accompanied by stereo speakers. They work well for gaming and are sufficiently loud. Streaming movies was limited to SD resolution thanks to the limited Widevine L3 certification.

Battery life is excellent, and charging is quick too, which makes this smartphone good for casual users and those seeking a gaming experience on a tight budget.

Infinix Hot 11S Specifications
Display 6.78-inch, 1,080x2,480 pixels
Processor MediaTek Helio G88
RAM 4GB
Storage 64GB
Battery Capacity 5000mAh
Rear Camera 50MP + 2MP + AI
Front Camera 8MP

Realme 8i Specifications
Display 6.60-inch, 1080x2412 pixels
Processor MediaTek Helio G96
RAM 4GB
Storage 64GB
Battery Capacity 5000mAh
Rear Camera 50MP + 2MP + 2MP
Front Camera 16MP

The Redmi 10 Prime carries the family look and sports a big 6.5-inch full-HD+ display with 90Hz refresh rate. It has a side-mounted fingerprint scanner that’s on the plastic frame and quad-camera system at the back.

The smartphone is powered by a MediaTek Helio G88 SoC and has either 4GB or 6GB of RAM paired with 64GB and 128GB of storage respectively. The phone packs in a 6,000mAh battery and is capable of 18W fast charging. It runs MIUI 12.5 on top of Android 11.

The Redmi 10 Prime packs in a quad-camera setup consisting of a 50-megapixel primary camera, an 8-megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera, a 2-megapixel macro camera, and a 2-megapixel depth sensor. Daylight camera performance was average but lowlight camera performance was below average. The Redmi 10 Prime offers better performance than its predecessor but does not offer the same value.
