Best Smartphones For Around Rs.20,000

For the past few months I have been on the lookout for the best smartphone for around Rs.20000. I have researched quite a bit and to be honest, I have found only one phone that impressed me. Which smartphone is that? Soon you will find out.

Here is my list of best smartphones available in India for around Rs.20,000

4. Blackberry Z10: Price Around Rs.21,000

Blackberry Z10 review

Blackeberry launched Z10 as its flagship device, during the launch its price was around Rs.40,000. The price drop says something about the financial condition of the company. After almost an year past its release, Blackberry has cut its price into half. Blackberry Z10 is now available for around Rs.21,000 in India. It is still one of the best smartphone available for around 20k range, if you don't mind about what is happening with company. I can assure that Blackberry won't disappear soon and it still produces one of the best business phones around.

Blackberry Z10 Pros
  • Light weight 137g
  • 4.2 Inch screen
  • 355ppi pixel density
  • 16GB internal storage
  • 2GB RAM
  • 8MP Rear and 2MP Front Camera
  • 1.5GHz Dual Core Processor
Blackberry Z10 Cons
  • Poor battery 1800mAh
  • Brand as a whole is a sinking ship
  • No Gorilla Glass
3. LG Google Nexus 5: Price Around Rs.29,000 in India and Rs.21,000 in USA

LG Google Nexus 5 review

This LG Google product is a stunner in specs. However, Google Nexus 5 is priced at Rs.29,000 in India. The reason why I included Nexus 5 in best smartphones for around Rs.20,000 is because, it is available for Rs.21,000 in USA and other 8 countries. In USA Nexus 5 sells for $350 (16GB) which comes around Rs.21,000 when converted to rupee. So consider buying it from USA, if you have relatives or friends there. Nexus 5 is a stunner for its price.

Google Nexus 5 Pros
  • Light weight 130g
  • 4.95 Inch sceen
  • 445ppi pixel density
  • 16/32GB internal storage
  • 2GB RAM
  • 2.3GHz Quad Core Processor
Google Nexus 5 Cons
  • Inconsistent battery life even at 2300mAh
  • Poor Camera even with HDR and 8MP
2. Samsung S4 Mini: Price Around Rs.22,000

Samsung S4 Mini review

Samsung S4 mini comes close to its elder brother S4 in most specs, but it is not quite there. It is second in my list of best smartphones for Rs.20,000. Even though it is slightly on the expensive side, it is a great phone especially if you are a Samsung fan. It has a great display, not quite in the league of S4 though. The camera is good and certainly scores better than the other two phones when you consider the price range.
S4 Mini Pros
  • Very light in weight 107g
  • 4.3 Inch screen
  • 1.5GB RAM
  • 8MP Rear and 1.3MP Front camera
  • 1.7GHz Dual Core Processor
S4 Mini Cons
  • No notification LED
  • Low pixel density 256ppi
  • Poor battery life 1900mAh
 1. Sony Xperia SP: Price around Rs.21,000

Sony Xperia SP review

Xperia SP is the best smartphone available for around Rs.20,000. Its features are excellent. Its performance is as great as it is on paper. It is best phone in 20k category. Its 8MP camera is excellent. My Xperia SP provide better pictures than my Cybershot 16.1MP digital camera, I don't know the secret behind that. Its performance is also very impressive, it has excellent sound reproduction. If you take out Nexus 5 out of this league, this phone beats all others in performance. It is the most popular phone in 20k category.

Xperia SP Pros
  • 4.6 Inch screen
  • 319ppi pixel density
  • 8GB internal memory
  • 8MP excellent quality camera, VGA front camera
  • 1.7GHz Dual core processor
  • Good battery life 2370mAh
Xperia SP Cons
  •  Front camera is just VGA
This concludes my list of best smartphones for around Rs.20,000. My personal recommendation will be Xperia SP or S4 mini. There are other phones too under this category but these four are the best in the league when you consider a combination of price, performance and design.
