5 Best Android Phones under 30000 Rs (June 2014)

by Rahul DubeyJune 1, 2014

Are you are looking for a smartphone around 30,000 Rs? If yes, then congratulations, you are going to buy one of the greatest smartphones in the world. No no, not the latest flagship models but the phones available in these range are absolutely fantastic and have nothing less. So, it is for sure you want to be 100% confident to buy the best one in this range, but this task is not so easy as all the phones around 30,000 Rs are equally good.  Don’t worry though, I am here to help you out. I have written the latest list of 5 Best Android Phones under 30000 Rs. for the month of June. Read it and compare the phones and choose the best one for you.

Among all the lists I write, I enjoy writing this list the most as the phones around 30,000 Rs. are of premium quality and another important factor is, this range is less crowded. There are less Android phones in this range say around 40 from which I have to choose the best five, in contrast to more than 150 phones in range of 15,000 Rs. And to present the best phones in front of you, I consider every phone and compare them in many aspects to get the best five.

So, coming back to the 5 Best Android Phones under 30000 Rs, all the phones in this list are really very good. It was very difficult to rank them except the first position. All the 5 phones are very interesting and different to fulfil the requirements of different types of users. All the 5 phones are worth buying, you just need to find out which phone attracts you the most.

Last month hundreds of readers of this blog had commented and asked which phone they should choose among the crowded market. Which has made me better understand the requirements and view point of the buyers. So I am trying to make this list even easier for you by giving you appropriate information. You are always welcome to ask your queries.

So, check out the list of 5 Best Android Phones under 30000 Rs below:

# Buying Tip:

There are some amazing offers and discounts available in many categories on Flipkart, the no. 1 shopping site in India. 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. Google Nexus 5 (16 GB):

Boom!!! Its THE NEXUS 5! The flagship phone from Google, which is among the best phones in the world. The most attractive feature, being a Nexus device, it will get the newest Android updates very quickly. The phone is manufactured by LG and hats off to them for creating a solid phone with amazing design and good build quality. Coming to the hardware, its just awesome and very very powerful. It has Quad-core 2.3 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 Processor which is great. It has 2 GB of RAM, amazing Full HD display and almost everything you will require. This phone offers the features and hardware which other companies offered at a much costlier price. But, now let’s give it a reality check. The phone is very popular for its performance but, right from its launch it was continuously in news for its camera, which many people say is a little disappointing (Nexus 5 has a 8 Mp camera). Another issue was a quick battery drain for few users, this issue is now fixed. Also, the phone doesn’t have the expandable storage, it comes in two variants 16 GB and 32 GB( the 32 GB model is available at 33,500 Rs.) So, for which types of users the Nexus 5 is the best choice? Its a very good choice for developers, for people who want guaranteed and speedy Android updates, for people who want the purest Android experience with no UI customizations and skins. If you want a very good camera phone, go for other phones in this list.

2. Sony Xperia Z:

One time, the Xperia Z was the flagship phone of Sony. It is truly a great phone and now when Sony has launched new flagship phones, its cost is reduced by many thousands and now, its available under 30,000 Rs. The phone is great. Great performance, great camera, great design, great display, great build and has most great top end features. Additional benefit you get with this phone is that it is water resistant so, you need not to hesitate to enjoy the rains. It is a very good phone for users who want the overall best phone and especially for those who want to show off the attractive design. And at this price point, its a great buy.

3. Samsung Galaxy S4:

This phone was the king of smartphones until the Galaxy S5 was launched recently. Most of you may have heard about this phone. Its a great performer with good hardware too. The performance and hardware is almost similar to the Sony Xperia Z but the Xperia Z scores one point more.  The price of the S4 is reduced by 10,000 Rs and now its under 30,000 Rs. which makes the phone very attractive. This is the best choice for people who want a very trustworthy phone and best after sales service, no doubt Samsung is the best brand for it.

 4. Gionee ELIFE E7 (32GB):

This is the king of hardware. This phone has the best specs in this list. It has bigger screen, bigger camera, bigger RAM, very good processor and rest all the hardware is amazing. This phone has flawless  performance which is very very fast. This phone is most suitable for those who want even bigger screen and for the heavy gamers and heavy users, it can do a hell lot of multitasking for you. If you are looking for the best performance then go for this phone. But considering the brand, it is ranked 4th.

 5. Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Neo:

It took me more than 45 mins to choose the last phone. It was a very tough fight between two phones – the Note 3 Neo and LG G Pro E988. I have done a lot of research and still the decision was tough and although the LG G Pro E988 was slightly better I have chosen the Note 3 Neo, lets find out why. The Note 3 Neo is a less powerful version of the most aspired Note 3. Many users want to buy the Note 3 but the high price din’t allow them. So, the Note 3 Neo is a great alternative for those users at this price. Also, the LG G Pro E988 is older and its better to buy the top 3 phones from this list rather than going with it. But the note 3 neo belongs to other class – The Note series of Samsung. Its a great phone and you will not find much difference from the original Note 3. One thing I want you to be aware of is that, on flipkart this phone is ranked poorly and most of the rating are poor because of the higher price of the phone. Initially it was priced at about 40,000 which was too high. But now @ 30,000 Rs. its a good buy.

    Hey, I am confused between Moto X, Nexus 5 and Nokia 630. I do not have any specific requirement other than no hanging up, palying games, checking emails and some surfing. Budget is not constraint, but value for money is!
