It has been only a few years since OnePlus made their first smartphone OnePlus 1 and then came OnePlus 2 which was not much impressive but then in 2106, OnePlus 3 was launched and It is still one of the best phones you can buy. But it didn’t end there. OnePlus was still getting some hate because of a smaller battery and less storage. So OnePlus launched an upgraded OnePlus 3T which today is one of the best smartphones you can buy. It is powerful enough to beat any flagship smartphone out there.
It is faster than almost all smartphones out there and you can do pretty much anything on it that you think you can do on other flagship smartphones. Its design is also impressive. It’s a thin smartphone and quite light weight. Gaming is very enjoyable on it. The fingerprint sensor is amazingly fast as well. It’s faster than any fingerprint sensor I’ve ever tried.
It has a bigger battery, newer processor, bigger storage variant, much better front camera and a new Gunmetal color which really suits the phone. The cost of the new OnePlus 3T is Rs. 30000 for the 64GB variant and Rs. 35000 for the 128GB variant.
Note: OnePlus 3 is a bit slippery due to its metal unibody and slim design. So get a cover or skin for it if you are buying it.
After OnePlus 3T, We have a phone which was the best budget smartphone until OnePlus 3T arrived. It’s OnePlus 3 which was launched 5 months before OnePlus 3T and I am still proud to say that I am using this smartphone myself and not just one but I have six OnePlus 3 and I am very satisfied with it.
On one phone I play games, other is for music, one is for personal life and one is for professional life. One is for testing and one is still sealed in the box. And I am really happy with its performance in every field. It has OnePlus’s Dash charging and I find it really useful when I am playing heavy games and the battery is low. It charges up the device very quickly and without heating the device.
As for the music, its speakers perform very well and I enjoy music a lot more on OnePlus 3 as compared to the previous devices I own. Call quality is better than most smartphones out there and music quality when using headphones is just ……. I don’t have words for it.
This should be enough for you to know how good this smartphone is. It costs only Rs. 28000 and fortunately It is still sold in India, unlike other countries where users can only buy OnePlus 3T now.
Note: OnePlus 3 is a bit slippery due to its metal unibody and slim design. So get a cover or skin for it if you are buying it.
Now we have a Samsung smartphone and whether it’s a cheap, mid-range or high-end smartphone, people love Samsung smartphones. Samsung has launched its first phone in India around 13 years ago and now It has become one of the most popular brands in the World.
On #3 we have Samsung A9 Pro (2016). This is an amazing smartphone and I really like it in terms of design and looks. It has a Gorilla Glass 4 display and back panel which is both good and bad. On one hand, the display is quite tough and On another hand, the back panel is not so tough as compared to most of the other devices in the market.
It has a big 6″ Super AMOLED display which makes it perfect for movies and games. If you are using a normal smartphone and then switch to Samsung A9 Pro, you’ll see a big difference in terms of display quality.
It costs around Rs. 30000. The price keeps changing. Sometimes a bit less and sometimes a bit more. At this price, a smartphone like this is a bit costly for sure but you are getting a Samsung smartphone and Samsung is Samsung. For the same performance, you can get Xiaomi Redmi Note devices but you’ll not get the build quality and service that Samsung offers. Let’s look at its specs.
Xiaomi is one of the most popular brands in China. Xiaomi released its first smartphone in India around 3 years ago and it got a head start because of their flash sales. They were everywhere since their first Flash Sale of Mi3.
At #4 we have Xiaomi Mi5 which initially was not much popular in India because Xiaomi decided not to release all Mi5 variants. We currently have Xiaomi Mi5’s 32 GB variant and it’s pretty good.
Just like Samsung A9 Pro, Xiaomi Mi5 has Gorilla Glass 4 back panel and that looks really good. The overall design and looks of the phone are just simply amazing. I decided to buy it just by looking it for once. It has a 5.15″ ultra-bright display that makes the whole experience amazing.

It runs on Xiaomi’s custom MIUI which is really fast and after using it for 2 days I pretty much started hating pure android for which I was really surprised myself. The whole experience was similar to that of iPhones and maybe that’s why Xiaomi is called Apple of China.
The cost of Xiaomi Mi5 32GB is currently Rs. 22999 and I personally recommend you to buy it if you are interested in it. It’s a pretty light device and as far as durability is concerned, It may have failed in most of the tests you have seen online, the real durability of this device is quite good. Let’s check its specs.
When we are talking about android, iOS does come in mind for at least once and that’s because iOS has been faster than android because of its optimizations. Apple is famous in India since many years.
It is considered one of the most premium manufacturer in the market as of now. No matter how bad it works or how small it is, It’s Apple! and that’s all that matters. But not so much for people who are more interested in performance than Brand.
For people like them who want an Apple iPhone, under Rs. 30000 and a compact but powerful device, We have Apple iPhone 6 holding #5 position. Apple iPhone 6 is not the latest and best iPhone but its iPhone and when you buy it, you don’t just get this phone but also get an object that can make people jealous of you.
Apple iPhone 6 is quite powerful actually and because of its optimized software, it doesn’t require a lot of ram or other resources. It uses a real fast processor and the internal memory speed is also very fast. That is the reason that applications open very quickly on iPhone as compared to android.
It has only a 4.7″ screen which fits perfectly in hands and is quite good when gaming. You are able to access every part of the screen easily. You can get Apple iPhone 6 for around Rs. 30000 easily. Price is variable and mostly is under Rs. 30000 which is good. Go get one if you want an iPhone under Rs. 30000.
The smartphone which holds #6 position is none other than Lenovo Phab 2 Pro and most of you will have a question that why is this smartphone in this list at all? The reason it is in this list is only because of Google Tango project. This is the first ever smartphone to have Tango.
Other than being the first smartphone to have Tango, Phab 2 pro is a great device. It has a huge 6.4″ 2k display which is perfect for using Tango. It has a big battery, powerful processor, hybrid sim slot to extend memory, etc. All that makes it good enough for this list.
Gaming on it is super fun and because of its huge 2k display, watching movies and playing games on this smartphone is really fun and entertaining. And to play movies and watch games for a long time, It has a big battery to back this smartphone up. This is the best smartphone under Rs. 30000 if you are looking for the Google Tango feature.
Phab 2 Pro has a premium design and build quality and has almost all the features you expect in a device that costs only Rs. 29990. If you love playing games and watch movies a lot on your smartphone, you’d love this smartphone. I recommend it to heavy gamers and binge-watchers.
LeEco is not really famous but-but tech people like us know that brand doesn’t really matter if you are getting a good build quality smartphone full of awesome looks and features at a very good price.

LeEco Le Max2 is the smartphone that holds the #7 in this list and that’s because of its price. It has a 5.7″ 2k display which is better than most of the devices on the market. The design is really great and because of that this smartphone is perfect for gaming and watching movies.
It runs on eUI which is not really great. Le Max2 is perfect for any task you want to do it. Because of its size, it’s a bit tough to use this smartphone single handed. It has a great camera and a powerful processor to handle multiple tasks at the same time.
LeEco Le Max 2 costs Rs. 17999 currently and for this price, I highly recommend this smartphone. It could have been in top 5 smartphones if it was not for the brand and availability.
At #8 we have Huawei Honor 8. This smartphone is very shiny and has an amazing design. If you look carefully, you’ll find it very similar to Google pixel in terms of design. It has a fast fingerprint sensor, a compact 5.2″ display which is perfect for almost everything and an overall slim design which feels really good in hands.
This phone is excellent in almost every aspect. This phone is specifically made for those people who love a bit compact but powerful smartphones. I personally liked this smartphone a lot.
Huawei Honor 8 has dual rear cameras which capture very amazing photos. Shooting videos are also great especially with EIS. It is one of the best phones under 30000 in terms of Camera performance and overall quality.
Huawei Honor 8 costs Rs. 26990 and at this price, it is an amazing device which I really can recommend without a second thought. Just simply go for it if you are interested in it. I personally liked its sapphire blue color and I am sure you’ll like it as well if you see some reviews of Honor 8 on YouTube.
#9 in this list is acquired by Moto X-Force which is a really tough phone. And by tough, I mean every part of it. Motorola says that Moto X Force has a shatterproof display and by testing it personally I can say that the screen can have a deep dent but will not shatter in any circumstances.
Moto X force is not just a tough device. It also performs really well. Moto X Force has a 5.4″ 2K AMOLED shatterproof display which is just amazing for gaming and watching movies.
This smartphone has a 21 MP camera which is great for taking amazing photos and recording stable videos. I personally found Moto X-Force an amazing device. The device itself is amazing and is perfect to fulfill the needs of any type of user.
It costs only Rs. 25990 and at this price I highly recommend it. The shatterproof 2k AMOLED display alone is enough to attract users and at this price, I find it really attractive. Go for it if you need a smartphone with the shatterproof display.
After the Moto X force at #9, We have another Motorola smartphone, Moto Z Play at #10. I have played a lot with Moto Z Play and It’s so much better than a normal smartphone. It has a projector in it with which I have seen a lot of movies and I was fairly happy. It was able to last for 2 whole days for me and I was really happy with the results. Its performance is amazing.

The main points about this smartphone are its battery and Its unlimited possibilities. You can use it for a lot of things. Moto Z Play is a projector, a music player, a battery powerhouse and much more and everything can be done almost instantly. You can say that this is the best phone under 30000 if you are looking for modularity.
Motorola says that Moto Z Play is their longest lasting device and I completely agree with it. Its battery backup was the only think that forced me to buy another Moto Z Play for my personal use. It supports Moto Mods and that alone makes it worth buying. The whole modular concept is just amazing.
Motorola Moto Z Play costs only Rs. 24999 and at this price I am really impressed with what I am getting. It worths every single penny spent on it. I highly recommend this to those people who like to keep doing different things with their smartphone. let’s check its specs.
