Features to expect in the best phones under Rs 15,000:

You can expect the best phones under Rs 15,000 to come with 1080p displays and support 1080p/4K video recording. Snapdragon 710 followed by Snapdragon 675 are among the best processors in this budget. We don’t recommend Snapdragon 636 in this budget. You will also find models that come with 4GB RAM.

In terms of software, get something with at least Android 8.0 that is expected to be updated to Android 9.0. Lastly, don’t blindly run after the megapixel count on the camera sensor. It doesn’t matter beyond a point.

Happy shopping.
