Features to expect in the best phones under Rs 25,000:

Under Rs 25,000, you can expect to see features like QHD (2K) display on the phone, as well as 4K video recording. However, 1080p displays aren’t all that bad either and save on battery and processing power. In terms of processing power, the best phones under Rs 25,000 come with Snapdragon 810, which is the best in this budget. However, it overheats and you can equally consider phones with Snapdragon 808 or 805. SD 615 seems a bit over the top for this budget. Also, go for phones that come with 3GB RAM, since it future proofs the device a bit. Needless to say go only for 4G phones. At least 32GB internal storage is preferable in this budget, otherwise make sure the phone comes with an expansion slot. In terms of software, get something with atleast Android 5.0 that is expected to be updated to Android 6.0.  Again, we don’t recommend iPhone 5s, since it doesn’t support 4G.
