by Rahul DubeyJuly 1, 2015

Looking to buy a phone around 20,000 Rs? Then you have chosen a difficult task as there are number of great phones in this range which make everybody confused and helpless. Don’t worry though, I am here to help you out. I have written the latest list of Best Android Phones under 20000 Rs. for the month of July. Read it and compare the phones and choose the best one for you. You can checkout best phones in other price ranges in our Buyer’s Guide.

Every month hundreds of readers of this blog comment and ask me which phone they should choose among the crowded market. Which has made me even 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, let’s take a look at the Best Phone Under 20000 Rs:

#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. Asus Zenfone 2 ZE551ML (4GB RAM):

Wow! 4 GB RAM!! In India, still a large population hasn’t got 4 GB RAM even on their computers but this budget device from Asus let’s you carry the enormous power of 4 GB RAM in your pockets. It runs on 2.3 GHz 64-bit Intel Atom Z3580 Quad Core Processor which is just amazing and with 4 GB of RAM, it’s needless to say the phone is performance powerhouse and can handle every bit of heavy gaming and multitasking pretty smoothly. It sports a 5.5 inches Full HD display which is very good and it is also protected with Corning Gorilla Glass 3. The phone has a 13 MP rear & 5 MP front camera, the picture quality of both the cameras is very impressive. They are bright & colourful. It allows FHD video recording & produces good quality videos. It also has Dual-LED Flash and many other features. It runs on the Android v5.0 Lollipop with Asus’s ZenUI running on top of it. It supports Dual Sim & 4G (LTE). It comes with whooping 32 GB internal memory which is also expandable upto 64 GB, well that’s great! It also has a good 3000 mAh battery, with fast charging feature (60% in 39 minutes of charging). When it comes to design, the phone looks very good and more importantly it’s different from other phones in the market. Overall, the Zenfone 2 is at the top spot in our list not only because it has 4 GB RAM but also because it offers Dual-Sim and great internal & expandable storage without spending those extra bucks. It’s the best buy at this price!

2. One Plus One:

The One Plus One is a great compelling phone out there. They say, the harder its to get a thing, the more its value is increased. That held true for the One Plus One as it was available to buy with an invite system for one whole year, the good news is that the invite system is now gone forever. It has got an all plastic body but its sturdy and good-looking. It has got good curves so despite the bigger 5.5 inches screen, it fits pretty well in the hands. One plus is much popular for the OS on which it was built on – The Cyanogenmod OS. But its beautiful journey to glory with Cyanogen soon ended when it entered India as, Cyanogen decided to break its partnership with One Plus and joined hands with Micromax. But One Plus came back stronger and launched their home-made ROM – The Oxygen OS based on Android Lollipop. The Oxygen OS looks beautiful, it’s very close to the stock Android UI but has few customizations and many features taken from the CyanogenMod. Another good news is that the dispute between Micromax and One Plus has ended in May and the Indian users can now also get updates for the Cyanogen OS. The performance of the phone is very smooth by virtue of the powerful Snapdragon 801 processor that it has got. It has excellent audio quality, it has got very good battery backup and the cameras on the phones are also very good, producing more natural colours. Overall, its fun to use the One Plus One phone as it is the balance of everything. It has got everything like the flagship processor, good design, good and stable software, good cameras, and good battery life, so going for the one will be a good one!

3. Xiaomi Mi4 (64 GB):

“Power” & “Simplicity” are the two words which describe the Mi4 entirely. It runs on the very popular and very powerful Snapdragon 801 Processor which was used in almost all the last generation flagship phones. To make the performance even greater it has got 3 GB RAM. So, there is no need to describe the performance, you yourself can imagine how fast and fabulously it will perform. It sports a 5 inches Full HD display which is also pretty good and bright. The things we should discuss in details is the camera performance of the phone. It has got the Sony IMX 214 CMOS sensor which is quite advanced. The camera quality is pretty good, it is capable of recording 4K videos, the Autofocus of the phone is pretty fast (0.3 Seconds) and decent and works quite well. The camera works quite well at night also, it has High Dynamic Flash which takes two photos one with flash and one without flash and then mixes the colors in both the photos so, the image gets natural colors. The 8 MP front camera is equally good. The battery life of the phone is good. Its design is simple but the metallic bezels gives it a premium and stylish touch. It runs on the custom Android skin of Xiaomi which is the MIUI V6 and is quite beautiful. The Infrared blaster in the phone might be quite useful to control TV, AC, etc. Overall, it’s the beast of the phones and is certainly a great choice for camera lovers or power-hungry users but it is a single sim phone so make sure you are okay with it.

4. HTC Desire 820s:

The HTC Desire 820s is the newer variant of the Desire 820. The Desire 820 already packed great specs and features and the 820s carries forward the same design but with improved performance. Let’s start with the design; it has the exact same design of the Desire 820. The body measures 7.74mm and is built with plastic which attracts fingerprints, it looks beautiful but doesn’t feel very premium. It runs on the Octa-core 1.7 GHz Mediatek MT6752 Processor coupled with 2 GB RAM which gives great performance and the phone runs very smoothly, you can play heavy games without lags. It has a 5.5 inches screen with the screen resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels which turns out 267 ppi pixel density, in total it is a decent display but a better screen could have made the phone perfect as this is the only factor where the phone scores average otherwise its great. The phone has a 13 MP rear camera and 8 MP front camera (selfie lovers can jump out of their seat!) Both the cameras are really very good. The phone is decent on storage also. It has 16 GB internal storage which is expandable upto 32 GB. The Desire 820s has also got a decent battery life with the 2600 mAh battery. It supports Dual-sim and is 4G (LTE) capable. Overall, the HTC Desire 820s can be a very good choice if you want a beautiful phone with great performance from reputed international brands.

    This is the first article i hv read on ur blog. I like the phones that are listed bcoz they are the real competitors in this segment. In terms of information, almost everything is captured but at the end i m left with no conclusion that is bcoz nowhere in the article any cons are mentioned. There can never be a perfect fone, every phone has to have some drawback and that is how u decide which fone to buy which i can’t in ur case.

    Hi,

    I am looking to buy a phone and I am suggested to go for Samsung E7. But after using many mobiles of Samsung, I am afraid of HANGING ISSUE of Samsung’s phone.

    Could you please suggest me, that Does this phone also hang or not?
    Would love to hear from you.

    With Love,
    RoyAbhi

    • July 6, 2015 at 11:26 pm

      Hi, the Galaxy E7 works pretty smoothly. I have used the phone for a good amount of time, never faced the hanging issues like we used to see in the Grand 2 priced at 20k a year ago.
