Top 5 Best Smartphones Under ₹30000 Budget | August 2021 (Gaming Phones)

The super premium midrange/budget flagship category phones under Rs 30K have become hot! So many good phones have been launched in this category. I’m going to talk about the best smartphones under Rs 30K. There are 3-4 new phones as compared to the last video done 2 months ago. So read carefully till the end as I’m also going to explain why I have picked them up! And like always we have a basic criteria.

Criteria - Should have SD870/Dimensity 1200 SoC, a 90Hz AMOLED screen, a 4500mAh battery with fast charging & minimum 6GB RAM which ideally should be 8GB. There’s 1 phone from the list with 6GB RAM, but the rest should have 8GB RAM according to me. And yes, they should be 5G ready in connectivity as it’s important. And SD870 & Dimensity 1200 SoC are present in the phones so they will be 5G ready! Before starting the list, every phone has a speciality & it all depends on what you are looking for.

(5) Mi 11X 5G - It’s based on Qualcomm SD870, you can look at it if you aren’t interested in Dimensity SoC. It’s on #5 because of its 6GB RAM & 128GB storage. Like I said, it’s the only phone with 6GB RAM. It has a 4520mAh battery with 33W fast charging. Is priced at Rs 29,999/- Has a 48MP+8MP+5MP triple camera setup on the rear & a 20MP selfie sensor, so overall it has good cameras. But because of the RAM & side mounted fingerprint sensor, it’s 5th in the list. The Mi11X comes with a 6.67” AMOLED screen with 120Hz fast refresh rate as per our basic criteria.

(4) iQOO 7 5G - It has 6.62” AMOLED screen with 120Hz fast refresh rate. Has 8GB RAM & 128GB Storage. It’s priced at Rs 31,999 but with offers it comes under Rs 30K & so we’ve included it in #4. Other features are good like, 48MP(OIS) triple camera setup, has a 4400mAh battery with 66W fast charging. So the charging is nearly double than the Mi 11X & that’s why it’s on #4. All these phones have been unboxed & their video links are in the “i” card. So do watch them before deciding. And if you’ve decided to buy then their links are provided in the description. Let’s move to the top 3, but I’m not going to rank them as they’ll be based on your requirements. And one of them is, 

(3) realme X7 Max 5G - You get its 12+256GB variant under Rs 30K. And its lower variants come around Rs 25-26K. So according to its price, it’s value for money. It has a Dimensity 1200 SoC which compared to SD870, has more 5G bands & also supports dual sim 5G. The AnTuTu scores & performances are also similar. In fact, Dimensity 1200 is based on 6Nm architecture which makes it more battery efficient, so it’s better It has a 64MP triple camera setup, with 12+256GB variant & a 4500mAh battery with 50W fast charging. And its price, Rs 29,999 for the 12+256GB variant is really good, which brings it in top 3. If you are into gaming, then you should buy this phone under Rs 30K. It’s a gaming phone!

(2) POCO F3 GT 5G - It comes with Maglev triggers & has the best build quality amongst the others in the list. The base variant comes around Rs 27-28K & their 8+256GB variant comes under Rs 30K. So you get an extra 128GB which is a good amount of storage. It has Dimensity 1200 SoC, a 5065mAh battery with 67W fast charging. There’s a 64MP triple camera setup with a 16MP selfie sensor. And overall like I said, the 8+256GB variant under Rs 30K is really good, which is why it’s in the top 3. And finally as you must have guessed, the OnePlus Nord 2, it’s not in 1st position but in the top 3. As they are all great winners in the irrespective spaces as per your requirements.

(1) OnePlus Nord 2 - It’s a great phone, has Dimensity 1200 with OxygenUI & it does have the ColorOS camera. And still OxygenUI is one of the cleanest UIs & I like it. So you can look at the OS along with the brand. Many people want a OnePlus phone, so you can look at it. The other specs include a 4500mAh battery with 65W fast charging. It has a 50MP(OIS) triple camera setup on the rear & a 32MP selfie sensor.
