Best phones under 20000 - September 2019

We all go through the struggle of finding the best phones. With so many phones being launched in India, especially in the price segment below Rs 20,000 it has become difficult for an average user to find out the best phone for his/her needs. And, that’s why we have created this list of best phones under Rs 20,000, which will be updated monthly. 

Note: We suggest you bookmark this listicle as it will be updated monthly. As and when phones are launched, and if they deserve to be on this list, you will see them being added here. We will try to keep this list as healthy as possible with the latest launches and relevant choices. 

Here’s the list of best phones under Rs 20,000 you can purchase in September. With every phone choice, we have justified why it’s there in the list. Which shall make it easier for you to trim down choices further. 

1. Mi A3 – Rs 12,999 (4+ 64GB), Rs 15,999 (6 + 128)

Mi A3 - Kind of Grey

Why Mi A3 made it to best phones under Rs 20,000? 

Primarily because of its Android One branding, and of course the 48MP Sony IMX 586 sensor. The Mi A3 is the cheapest offering that comes with the large Sony sensor. The phone that is priced closest to the Mi A3 with the IMX 586 sensor is the Realme 5 Pro. Plus, the Android One promise helps it secure major software updates for years to come. So, that’s a relief in case you’re planning to buy a phone without looking to upgrade anytime soon. It is as good as a phone for a millennial as it is for an elderly.

Before we talk about the Realme 5 Pro, we would like to talk about Motorola’s recent aggressive launch – the One Action.

Redmi 7

Why Redmi Note 7 Pro made it to best phones under Rs 20,000? 

A Redmi Note phone has always been a strong contender as far as the price segment below Rs 20,000 in India is concerned. The most latest Redmi Note is yet to arrive in India but its predecessor has still a strong lead in the industry, despite many rivals. Powered by Snapdragon 675, and up to 6GB of RAM, it was launched in India in March. Since then it hasn’t lost its charm. It was also one of the firsts to sport a Sony IMX586 sensor in this price category. We reviewed it positively when it launched in India. You can check it out below. 

5. Vivo Z1 Pro – Rs 14,990 (4 + 64), Rs 16,990 (6+ 64), Rs 17,990 (6+ 128)

Why Vivo Z1 Pro made it to best phones under Rs 20,000? 

This Vivo phone was launched as a gaming phone in India. Surprisingly priced well, it starts below Rs 15,000 and the highest variant is priced within Rs 20,000. No, that’s not the only reason this handset made the list. The Z1 Pro packs a punch with a Snapdragon 712 SoC, and a massive 5000mAh capacity battery. This combination makes it a gaming device for consumers not willing to spend a huge amount. The triple rear camera is an added advantage for a camera enthusiast. That’s not it though, there is much more to this device. Hear all about it in our detailed review video below.

This is Realme’s most premium smartphone yet as claimed by the brand. We agree. Priced close to Rs 20,000, it comes in multiple variants. The AMOLED-screen enabled handset packs a bezel-less look, all thanks to the pop-up selfie camera. Realme X’s stellar everyday performance comes thanks to the Snapdragon 710 processor inside.
