Looking for the best phone to buy under Rs. 15,000? There are several options to choose from. You get brands like Realme, Xiaomi and Poco with their multiple competitors under the Rs. 15,000 price range. While some models in the price bracket have promising camera experiences, you also have options with higher RAM capacity and newer processors. With so much variety, it’s not that easy to choose the most suitable option. On this episode of Orbital, host Akhil Arora brings in Gadgets 360 reviewer Aditya Shenoy and assistant review editor Roydon Cerejo to discuss the best phones among Rs. 15,000.
We talked about what people’s expectations should be when looking at phones under the Rs. 15,000 staples. It is difficult to find an all-rounder in this segment as some have a powerful processor while the others have good cameras. Companies like Realme and Xiaomi now offer features like AMOLED displays with a refresh rate of 90 Hz and multiple rear cameras. However, people buying a phone under Rs. 15,000 are unlikely to get features like stereo speakers, water resistance, and wireless charging.
