Anroid News - Best phones under 15,000 rupees in India

Realme 3 Pro vs Redmi Note 7 Pro showing logo

Companies like Xiaomi have changed the game in India, with budget-friendly smartphones offering impressive performance and features. Many have followed suit, and even major players like Samsung and LG have jumped into this budget-friendly category in India. If you’re looking for a lot of bang for your buck, here are some of the best phones under 15,000 rupees (~$210)!

Best phones under 15,000 rupees in India:


1. Realme 5 Pro

Every OEM is hoping to knock Xiaomi out of the top spot and it’s become a fascinating game of one-upmanship in the budget-friendly segment in India. One company that is giving Xiaomi a run for its money is Realme. The latter is hoping to continue its impressive run with its latest affordable smartphone – the Realme 5 Pro.

It hasn’t even been six months since the Realme 3 Pro launched, but the 5 Pro manages to be a decent upgrade over its predecessor. A slightly faster processing package aside, the key change here is the camera setup, with the 5 Pro introducing quad rear cameras to this segment. Realme continues to knock it out of the park and 5 Pro is certainly one of the best phones under 15,000 rupees you can buy.


Realme 5 Pro specs:

  • Display: 6.3-inch, Full HD+
  • SoC: Snapdragon 712
  • RAM: 4/6/8GB
  • Storage: 64/128GB
  • Rear camera: 48MP, 8MP, 2MP, and 2MP
  • Front camera: 16MP
  • Battery: 4,035mAh
  • Software: Android 9.0 Pie

2. Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 Pro

Xiaomi has enjoyed incredible success in India with its Redmi Note series. It was time for a change though, as every generation was starting to look the same. Luckily, Xiaomi seems to have recognized this. The latest addition to the series — the Redmi Note 7 Pro — features key changes that put the phone back on top.

You now get a glass sandwich design and a gradient color scheme, a first for the Redmi series. Another first is the availability of a USB-C port. Keeping with the more premium features, the Redmi Note 7 Pro is one of the first phones under 15,000 rupees to come with a 48MP primary rear camera. Excellent hardware at affordable prices is Xiaomi’s mantra, so it doesn’t come as a surprise that this continues with the Redmi Note 7 Pro.


Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 Pro specs:

  • Display: 6.3-inch, Full HD+
  • SoC: Snapdragon 675
  • RAM: 4/6GB
  • Storage: 64/128GB
  • Rear camera: 48MP and 5MP
  • Front camera: 13MP
  • Battery: 4,000mAh
  • Software: Android 9.0 Pie

3. Motorola One Action

The Motorola One Action brings the unique features of the One Vision to an even more budget-friendly phone. A punch hole houses the front camera, and it’s the only affordable phone to come with a 21:9 aspect ratio display. Native 21:9 content looks great for supported movies on Netflix. That said, not a lot of videos fit that aspect ratio yet, but it could just be smart future-proofing on the part of Motorola.

The unique design and display aside, the Motorola One Action earns its name from the 16MP ultra-wide sensor on the rear. You can’t take still pictures with this camera, but it serves as an in-built action video camera of sorts. Thanks to the narrow frame of the One Action and the camera’s wide field of view, you can record videos vertically and play them back in landscape mode.

Solid performance, a great software experience, and good cameras round out an impressive smartphone which certainly stands out among its under-15,000 rupees competition.


Motorola One Action specs:

  • Display: 6.3-inch, Full HD+, 21:9
  • SoC: Exynos 9609
  • RAM: 4GB
  • Storage: 128GB
  • Rear camera: 12MP and 5MP, 16MP video camera
  • Front camera: 12MP
  • Battery: 3,500mAh
  • Software: Android 9.0 Pie

4. Samsung Galaxy M30

Fueling Samsung’s resurgence in the affordable smartphone market in India is its M-series. Out of the four currently available, there are two that are priced starting at under 15,000 rupees — the higher-end of the two is the Samsung Galaxy M30.

There are a few common features between the two, but the Galaxy M30 proves to be the better overall device. Samsung’s display prowess shines through with this phone. It’s also one of the few in this price range to comes with triple rear cameras. A large battery, smooth performance, and an affordable price point round out this solid smartphone package.


Samsung Galaxy M30 specs:

  • Display: 6.4-inch, Full HD+
  • SoC: Exynos 7904
  • RAM: 4/6GB
  • Storage: 64/128GB
  • Rear camera: 13MP, 5MP, and 5MP
  • Front camera: 16MP
  • Battery: 5,000mAh
  • Software: Android 9.0 Pie

5. Vivo Z1 Pro

You’d be hard-pressed to distinguish between all the phones that fall in the price range, especially with practically identical notches galore. 2019 is thankfully shaping up to be different though. That starts with the Vivo Z1 Pro. The front of the phone isn’t completely blemish-free of course. But with the Z1 Pro, you get a punch hole notch that’s off to the side and not as intrusive. It’s not just about the looks either, but it is the first of its kind in this segment.

The Z1 Pro is packed with features that you’d expect from a more expensive phone – triple rear cameras, upper mid-range processor, Widevine L1 support, an excellent selfie shooter, and more. The great news is that the Z1 Pro is priced quite aggressively. Vivo is looking to take on Xiaomi, Realme, and Samsung, and the Z1 Pro is a great way to do it.


Vivo Z1 Pro specs:

  • Display: 6.53-inch, Full HD+
  • SoC: Snapdragon 712
  • RAM: 4/6GB
  • Storage: 64/128GB
  • Rear camera: 16MP, 8MP, and 2MP
  • Front camera: 32MP
  • Battery: 5,000mAh
  • Software: Android 9.0 Pie

6. Xiaomi Redmi Note 7S

Redmi Note 7S back in hand

If you’re looking for one of the best phones under 15,000 rupees in India, the Xiaomi Redmi Note 7S a great way to go. This device essentially replaces the now-defunct Redmi Note 7 and offers the best of both worlds – the affordability of the Redmi Note 7 and much better camera setup of the Redmi Note 7 Pro.

Like the other new entrants in the Redmi line, the Redmi Note 7S features an all-glass build and comes with a USB-C port. Unfortunately, it comes with a slightly slower processor but that’s about the only compromise you’re making when compared to the Redmi Note 7 Pro. If an excellent camera experience at a more affordable price point is what you’re after, the Redmi Note 7S is a great choice.


Xiaomi Redmi Note 7S specs:

  • Display: 6.3-inch, Full HD+
  • SoC: Snapdragon 660
  • RAM: 3/4GB
  • Storage: 32/64GB
  • Rear camera: 48MP and 5MP
  • Front camera: 13MP
  • Battery: 4,000mAh
  • Software: Android 9.0 Pie

7. Samsung Galaxy M20

The Samsung Galaxy M20 is basically the cheaper version of the Galaxy M30. You can see where the corners are cut to give the former its more affordable price tag, but there’s nothing missing that anyone would consider a deal-breaker. If you’re on the budget, the Galaxy M20 will certainly get the job done.

The Galaxy M20 is powered by the same processor found with its more expensive sibling. The battery life is also equally good and the software experience as smooth. One of the biggest sacrifices is camera, which isn’t nearly as impressive as the M30. If the camera isn’t an important factor, the Galaxy M20 allows you to save a couple of thousand rupees.


Samsung Galaxy M20 specs:

  • Display: 6.3-inch, Full HD+
  • SoC: Exynos 7904
  • RAM: 3/4GB
  • Storage: 32/64GB
  • Rear camera: 13MP and 5MP
  • Front camera: 8MP
  • Battery: 5,000mAh
  • Software: Android 9.0 Pie

8. Xiaomi Mi A3

Xiaomi’s Android One smartphones are quite popular. So it’s no surprise that the Xiaomi Mi A3 was a highly anticipated device. It’s a decent mid-ranger, but gets lost amongst the exceedingly impressive competition in this price range. The display is of a lower resolution and the processor isn’t as powerful as the other phones on the list, but that’s not what this phone is about.

The Mi A3 is ideal for anyone who wants pure Android without spending a fortune on a Pixel smartphone. It will also receive upcoming OS updates before most other phones. The Mi A3 may not be the most powerful phone on this list, but it certainly offers one of the smoothest software experiences you can get.


Xiaomi Mi A3 specs:

  • Display: 6.01-inch, HD+
  • SoC: Snapdragon 665
  • RAM: 4/6GB
  • Storage: 64/128GB
  • Rear camera: 48MP, 8MP, and 2MP
  • Front camera: 32MP
  • Battery: 4,030mAh
  • Software: Android 9.0 Pie

Anroid News - Google is bringing Data Saver to Android TV, starting in India

Android TV will get a Data Saver feature soon.

Data-saving functionality is one of the most important features on smartphones, especially in markets where mobile data is prohibitively expensive. 

Devices such as smart TVs and media boxes also consume a ton of data, but keeping tabs on this usage can be a challenge. Thankfully, Google has announced that it will bring a Data Saver utility to its Android TV platform.

Enable the Data Saver option on your Android TV device and your device’s video streaming quality will be adjusted in order to save megabytes (and gigabytes in the long run). 

The data-saving measures don’t end there, as Google is also allowing users to receive alerts when they hit 100MB, 500MB, or 1GB of data used. This means you don’t have to guess how much data you have left after streaming via a mobile connection. 

Google says it’ll also deliver a Hotspot Guide, specifically made to help you set up your Android TV device with a mobile hotspot.

Finally, the company says users can also choose to cast downloaded media from their phone to their TV via the Files app. This won’t consume data, making it a pretty convenient way to watch content on your Android TV. 

These features will land in India first, starting with devices from Xiaomi, TCL, and MarQ by Flipkart. Google says a global rollout will follow shortly thereafter. Fortunately, Google notes that the ability to cast via the Files app is already live in the beta version of the file manager. You can check out the beta release via the button below.
