It feels like the golden era of smartphones is back. Yes, so many value-for-money smartphones have been launched in the last 2-3 months. Our list of under 15K & under 25K is not complete. There are still a few phones, but most of the phones have changed & for good! This article is about the best 5g phones under 25000.
I’m going to share my top 5 picks and as always, we do a lot of research & a lot of effort goes into these. talking about 5g phones under 25000, 2-3 things are very important.
Performance should be very good. For example, Qualcomm Snapdragon 782G should be good. Dimensity 8020 should be good. Antutu’s score should be above 6L. 5G should be there. The fast refresh rate should be there. At least 8GB RAM & 128GB storage should be there. Fast charging should be at least 66W and a battery of 4500-5000mAh should be there. So these are the minimum criteria. So according to me, which are the best phones?
5. OnePlus Nord CE 3 5G
Think about it, OnePlus Nord CE 3 5G comes in 5th place. So how will the top 4 be? And the most surprising thing is that the 1st entry was the most surprising entry. I mean, I think it’s the 1st time that this brand has come at the 1st place. But let’s talk about OnePlus Nord. It has a big AMOLED display of 120Hz. You get 8GB RAM & 128GB storage for Rs 26,999.
But if you get Rs 3000 off, then it comes under Rs 25K. So you get a Qualcomm processor, OnePlus brand & a clean UI. It has a good camera. Overall, according to me, in under 25K, OnePlus Nord CE 3 5G definitely comes in 5th place.
4. Realme GT Neo 3
But there are 4 phones that are even better and we found it surprising that Realme is making a slightly small comeback.
You get Realme GT Neo 3 under Rs 25K for a price of Rs 23,999. It also has a 120Hz AMOLED screen. But it has a Dimensity 8100 processor. It has a really good performance. It has a top 5,000mAh battery with 80W charging. The camera is surprisingly good. Overall, if you look at the package, I’d say it comes at the 4th place.
But let me say something about these phones, especially the Realme GT Neo. They don’t have a lot of stock. They get out of stock very quickly. So if you’re thinking,
3. Redmi K50i
The 3rd phone is surprising & I think it’s on our last 2 under 25K lists. Because it’s a performance monster, Redmi K50i. It’s been 1 year since it launched & I still think it’s a good phone. It has a 144Hz screen with a 6.6” FHD. It’s just that it’s an IPS display for gamers & not AMOLED. That’s why it’s at the 3rd place.
It has a 5080mAh battery with 67W charging & a Dimensity 8100 processor. It’s similar to the Realme GT Neo 3, but it’s really good from a gaming perspective. It has a side-mounted fingerprint sensor with a 64MP plus 8MP plus 2MP triple camera setup. In Rs 23,999, it’s definitely in the 3rd place, and remember, the pricing I’m telling you is without offers.
If you buy it on sale, you’ll get it for less than Rs 1-2K. If you buy it on exchange, you’ll get it for less than Rs 1-2K. It’s at the 2nd place.
2. iQOO Z7 Pro
The 1st & 2nd are really great smartphones. iQOO Z7 Pro is at the 2nd place. It has a 6.78” FHD+, 120Hz curved AMOLED display. It looks good & has an AG glass protection.
It has a Dimensity 7200 processor. It’s an excellent processor. It has a 128GB base variant with a 4600mAh battery. It looks really good & has 66W charging. It has an OIS 64MP primary sensor. It doesn’t have an ultrawide sensor. That’s a big miss & that’s why it’s at the 2nd place.
But the 64MP primary sensor is OIS, so it’s definitely very good. You get the 8GB 128GB variant in Rs 23,999. By the way, you get Rs 2K off if you buy it on offer. So that’s at the 2nd place with the iQOO Z7 Pro.
1. Infinix Zero 30 5G
The 1st phone has a 108MP OIS camera. It has a 50MP selfie sensor and you can do both 4K 60FPS videography.
Even phones worth Rs 40K don’t give you 4K 60FPS in the selfie cameras. It has a 108MP plus 13MP plus 2MP triple camera setup. It has a 144Hz curved AMOLED 6.78” display. It has a Dimensity 88020 processor. I won’t say it’s the best performance, but it’s an all-around phone. Dimensity 88020 is really good with a 6.5L AnTuTu score.
It has a 5000mAh battery, 68W charging, an in-display fingerprint sensor & a camera. It has an industrial look & is made of vegan leather. It has a curved AMOLED display. And it’s priced at Rs 8,256 for all variants. The base variant is priced at Rs 8,256 & you get it for Rs 23,999. Infinix Zero 30 5G is definitely number one in our list of best phones under Rs 25000.
