So you are ready to spend a good amount of 25,000 Rs. on your new Smartphone. So, it is for sure you want to be 100% confident to buy the best one and as there are number of good phones in this range, this task is not so easy.  Don’t worry though, I am here to help you out. I have written the latest list of 5 Best Android Phones under 25000 Rs. for the month of April. Read it and compare the phones and choose the best one for you.

The range of 25,000 Rs contains some amazing phones with blazing fast performance and really good features. But last month the launch of one phone has made the competition in this range more exciting and has raised the standard of innovation. I am talking about none other than the Moto X.  It has something for every type of user whether yo are a gamer, you watch videos more often, want good music experience or just anything.

Last month hundreds of readers of this blog had commented and asked which phone they should choose among the crowded market. So I am trying to make this list even easier for you by giving you additional information. You are always welcome to ask your queries

So, check out the list of 5 Best Android Phones under 25000 Rs below:

#Buying Tip:

There are some amazing offers and discounts available in many categories on Flipkart. Buying your Smartphones, Laptops and other gadgets online can be a wise decision as buying online can definitely save you some money. And no doubt Flipkart is best for Indian buyers.

1. Motorola Moto X:

Awesomeness Redefined!!! This is the phone with lots of innovations and many amazing features you will not find in other phones. The Moto X has very efficient voice control or “Touchless control” as the company defines it.  The phone is always lisening to you, just say “Ok Google” and the voice detection starts, now say anything and find it on the phone or search it on Google. It gives pure Android Experience with Google Now on 4.2.2 Kitakat. It has a great curvy design to fit perfectly in hands. Another feature added in Moto X is that, you can see all the notifications right there in the lock screen and tap them to open the app. The Dual Core processor is blazing fast and it has a Quad Core Adreno 320 GPU which ensures high end gaming on the phone without any lags. The 2 GB RAM ensures perfect performance. The 10 MP camera is very good. The phone has a 2200 mAh battery which gives good battery backup.

What a phone from Gionee! Top end specifications. A phone for users who need absolutely high performance. It has got almost everything you want in a smartphone apart from the recent rend of Octa Core processor. But its performance is already so good, the octa core processor would have made a very low impact. And we, the Indian buyers, are yet to trust Gionee and still hesitate to buy its phones. But with this phone, just forget everything and every bit of hesitation. Its just too good.

    Iam looking for a phone under 25k (Sony/HTC/Moto).It should have a good primary and secondary camera .Screen size should be around 5 inches. Latest kitkat version is preferred. Iam damn confused between moto x and HTC 816. I loved the extra featues moto has offered but the problem is that it does not have an expandable storage (16 gb means available storage will be around 10-12 gb and thats surely not enough for me) plus the size is just 4.7 inches.It should be around 5 inches.My another concern regarding moto X is its after sale services. Do they have any customer care centre in DELHI?? I loved HTC because of the specs they have offered in this price range. The one thing I didn’t like was the screen size, its too large for me to carry or hold .HTC has not even confirmed the phone’s release date.Please help me out.

    Hi Rahul,
    I`m an amid viewer of your Posts from past 3 months. I want to buy A large screen phone (5 or more than 5 inch) under the budget of 25000, which should offer Best of both worlds i.e battery life and features. I want the Phone for gaming (not a heavy user but should run games like asphalt 8 and FIFA 14 smoothly). I was thinking of considering Geoniee e7 but due to its lack of service centre i refused it. I want a phone from Trusted Brands only like HTC, Sony….
    No Micromax, xolo,karbonn….. pls..
    I have shortlisted Few like
    HTC DESIRE 816.
    I`m ready to wait for a month, so if there is any upcoming or other phone under my budget pls. mention it.

      T2 Ultra has a very large 6 inches screen, if you are comfortable with it then it is a good phone. But overall Moto X is much better phone.

    Hey hi,

    I want to buy a phone with best features under 32 k , max to max 35 k which you can suggest me?????
    I have studied over it and shortlisted few of them like Samsung galaxy note 3 neo (but drawback is clock speed)
    LG nexus 5 (drawback is no expandable memory)
    Sony xperia z1 compact (bit expensive)
    LG G2 (expensive)
    my conclusion came and ended on z1 compact but i am little bit worried about the service issues too.
    Kindly please help me in this, i can minimize my budget if the same features can satisfy me.
    Please suggest me if you have any other best phone too………

    • April 29, 2014 at 10:48 pm

      Hi Ananth,

      The HTC Desire 816 looks a very promising phone with decent hardware. Also, it is placed at a good price point which makes the phone a good buy, tough competition from Moto X though. But considering it has got bigger screen, you should go with the Desire 816.

      April 22, 2014 at 9:14 am

      HTC phones are very reliable but reselling value is not that like samsung.
      But you can buy Grand 2 its really a good phone with nice tech and battery life.
      But if you still ask me I will ask you to buy a S3. Try to get HTC one M8 in future I bought it from UK and its nice just not better camera like S5. But I have a DSLR so to handle my phone it must be a metal.
      My best experience:
      Iphone 5S
      One S
      HTC butterfly
      HTC Sensation
      Samsung Si9000

      All phones were good never used a note.
      I have a Ipad.

      Still if you ask me beyond your budget its S3.
      And if you have never used Iphone its time to move on to 4S or 5c or 5S.
      But want to hang with Android then you have a lot.
      I will not ask to take a windows phone its crappy still with not a good quality apps.
      Just be sure Manish you are a boy and cant carry a large phone everyday so don’t get a big size phone.
      As you will not carry it in a Bag. LOL

    • April 29, 2014 at 10:37 pm

      Hi Manish,

      Go with Grand 2 but if you are comfortable with 6-inches screen go with Xperia T2 Ultra. The HTC Desire 700 is a very beautiful phone but is overpriced and much better phones are available at its price tag.

    Hi I got sony xperia ion from amazon , yes I like the looks and features . However unfortunately though I charged the phone for an hour or so ,not able to get the screen on… No replacement from online…Could you suggest me same features especially good screen size, campera , and other wonder…thanks

    • April 29, 2014 at 9:17 pm

      Hi Yeshi,

      Its very painful to hear such user experiences, that’s why flipkart is most recommended by me. They have replacement guarantee if something bad happens.

      And at the price point of Xperia Ion you may get the same and enhanced features with Sony Xperia SP, so you will also get the impressive looks of Sony.

      Hello Raffi,

      Its good but if you can extend your budget a little more, then go with Moto G, by increasing few thousands you will get a wonderful phone, much better than Xperia M.
