Here are a few best budget phones in India right now-
POCO M3 Pro 5G
The POCO M3 Pro 5G will democratise 5G in India. The phone has most of the specifications you'd expect from a modern handset and with 5G connectivity support, it ensures you're future-proof. To name a few useful features, the phone has an FHD+ panel with a refresh rate of 90Hz, triple rear cameras, and fast charging support. If you want to buy a phone that you will keep for a few years, the POCO M3 Pro 5G is a good choice.
Realme Narzo 50
The Realme Narzo 50 is a capable device priced under Rs 15,000, with suitable camera, hardware and long battery life. It runs on MediaTek's Helio G96, which is ideal for gaming. In terms of display, you get a smooth 120Hz refresh rate and an FHD+ resolution. The 50MP camera handles the primary image shooting capabilities, while a handy 16MP sensor is located on the front. While the battery lasts long, the device can be charged quickly with the 33W Dart Charge technology.
The Moto G52 distinguishes itself with a 90Hz pOLED panel that provides relatively good colour accuracy and contrast ratios compared to LCD-powered budget smartphones. The Moto G52's clean software ]implementation, a 5,000mAh battery backup and a set of stereo speakers all work in its favour as a valuable media consumption device. Motorola has used Qualcomm's Snapdragon 680 SoC for processing, while optics are handled by a 50MP primary sensor and an 8MP ultra-wide sensor.
Realme 9i 5G
For its starting price of Rs 14,999, the Realme 9i 5G is not the most feature-rich smartphone available. It does, however, get the basics right and can be a valuable addition for those on a tight budget. The Realme 9i 5G has a stylish design for its price point while also providing good performance, an impressive battery life, and a decent set of cameras. Realme has done a commendable job with the device delivering 5G services at an affordable price.
Samsung Galaxy M13
Thanks to a slew of specs, Samsung's Galaxy M13 is a good budget option for everyone. An Exynos 850 chipset handles performance, and up to 4GB of RAM is supported. In terms of display, the phone's 6.6-inch LCD panel provides a large viewing area. Using Samsung's proprietary OneUI makes navigating the interface much more accessible. To top it all off, the phone has a triple camera on the back and a massive 6,000 mAh battery to keep it running for more than a day without needing to charge.
Vivo T1 44W
The Vivo T1 44W gets the fundamentals right for a decent budget experience. The AMOLED panel used for viewing is one of its main strengths, though the refresh rate is limited to 60Hz. While lightweight and thin, the T1 44W includes a headphone jack and a 5,000mAh battery that, as the name suggests, can be charged at 44W. The Vivo T1 44W is a solid recommendation in the budget market, thanks to a decent triple-camera setup, Qualcomm's Snapdragon 680 SoC, and up to 6GB of RAM.
Moto G40 Fusion
The Moto G40 Fusion is one of Motorola's best budget phones in a long time, and the device shines in some key areas. This phone has everything, whether you want a powerful processor, a high refresh rate display, or a massive battery capacity. The camera performance is impressive for the price range, and the only area where you might find this phone lacking in design and build quality. In other words, if you want an all rounder in budget, the Moto G40 Fusion is a good choice.
Samsung Galaxy M32
The Samsung Galaxy M32 continues the M-series legacy, offering similar features to its predecessors but improved camera performance, a more powerful processor, and a high refresh rate FHD+ AMOLED display. The phone provides good image quality while shooting from the front-facing sensor, thanks to its 20MP selfie camera. With long-lasting battery life, one of this series' main selling points, the Galaxy M32 ensures that it comes across as an appealing package to everyone.
