The OnePlus 5 is the best phone under 40000 right now. It runs the top notch specifications like the flagship devices from Samsung, Google, HTC, LG, and more. And this time, OnePlus took it a bit further by adding dual cameras. Although it might look mostly similar to the Apple’s iPhone 7 Plus, it isn’t at all.

OnePlus 5 is rather a great feeling phone. The phone’s performance just flies off even on the 6 GB RAM it runs quite smoothly consisting of the Snapdragon 835 chipset. The display is OMOLED here so no complaints about that. Take a look down for the specs and get an idea about it. Priced at Rs. 32,999 for the 6 GB variant and Rs. 37,999 for the 8 GB variant it is a perfect buy.

2. LG G6

LG G6 (Best LG phone under Rs. 40000 in India)

Right after the OnePlus 5, the closest best smartphone under Rs. 40,000 you can get is the LG G6. Launched recently, the LG G6 comes with a 5.7-inches QHD Bezel-Less Display (So futuristic). Having it launched earlier, the one drawback with this thing is the Snapdragon 821 chipset which is still not a bad one, but it still gets things done and is the closest competitor to OnePlus 5.

It comes with a Dual Camera Setup and performance very well under any conditions. If you’re into the camera, I would better suggest you go with the LG G6. This phone recently got a massive price cut of Rs. 10,000 recently making it into the “best smartphones under Rs. 40,000” list.

4. OnePlus 3T

OnePlus 3T (2nd best phone under 40000 in India )

I know that it is a device that comes under Rs. 30,000 which is far better than what you can see on this list below. The screen is the same as the one that we can see on the OnePlus 5. After the OnePlus 5, we can easily recommend yo this without any hesitations at all.

It comes with a Snapdragon 821 chipset as well with a 6 GB of RAM and delivers the performance close to the OnePlus 5. Just take a look at the specifications below that’ll get my words on point. It is still one of the best phone below 40000 in India.

5. Huawei P9

Huawei P9 (Best Huawei phone under 40000)

The Huawei P9 is the latest flagship from Huawei packing in some of the great flagship features making it to 3rd on the list of the best smartphones under Rs. 40,000. Technically, Huawei manufactures their chipsets, making it optimized for Huawei specific phones. The EMUI on top of Android just runs like butter when coupled with the Huawei-made Kirin Chipset and 4 GB of RAM.

It also comes with a dual rear camera which brings in some great pictures in both day and night. If you don’t trust OnePlus since it’s an emerging brand, you can get the P9 quickly off from online retailers. Look down the spec sheet, and I guess you can expect a good, maybe much better performance out of it. Which makes the phone the best camera phone under 40000 in India.
