Features to expect in the best phones under Rs 30,000:

Here’s what to expect from the best smartphones under Rs 30,000. In terms of display, 1080p should be the bare minimum on Android phones. As for the processor, in the Qualcomm camp, Snapdragon 855 is the best processor in this budget, followed by the Snapdragon 845. Kirin 980 is a good processor too. Snapdragon 66x series doesn’t seem like a right fit in this budget and you should avoid phones with those processors.

Speaking about the camera, look for phones that support 4K video recording, have a large aperture and pixel size. Again, megapixels don’t matter beyond a point (which has been crossed already). 6GB RAM is pretty much the norm for smartphones around Rs 30,000. Lastly, look for something that is scheduled to be upgraded to Android 9.0 at least (better, if it is already upgraded). Happy shopping.
