Here's the list of 10 BEST Dual Camera Smartphones Under 15000 India 2018

1. Mi A2

Mi A2 is the successor of last year's Mi A1 which was Xiaomi's first Android One phone. It came with stock android, great camera, nice design and a great price. Mi A1 was one of the bestsellers in India and this year Xiaomi has launched the Mi A2. 

Mi A2 has a similar metal unibody design like the Mi A1. The display on the front is now 5.99 inches 18:9 aspect ratio display. The display is of good quality with nice colors, good contrast and saturation. The display is covered by Gorilla glass which will protect it from scratches. 

This time Xiaomi has placed a 20MP+12MP dual rear camera on the Mi A2. There is no telephoto lens like there was last time so you cannot zoom in without losing quality. The front camera is 20MP sensor. Like Mi A2, Mi A2 also takes great pictures with a lot of details, good colors. Portrait mode also works well with good edge detection. 

The Mi A2 is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 chipset which is a powerful midrange processor. There is 4GB RAM and 64GB storage. Powerful processor, plenty of RAM and stock android makes the phone very fluid. It can handle multiple apps and games with ease. You can also play heavy games like PUBG and Asphalt 9. 

Mi A2 has some negatives as well. First one is that it does not have a headphone jack. The second one is that it does not have a MicroSD slot to increase storage and the third is the average battery. The battery is just 3010 mAh and would last for a day on low to medium usage. With heavy usage, you will exhaust the battery in the evening which isn't great. 

Go for Mi A2 if you need a great camera, stock Android experience under 15000 to 20000 Rs.

2. Nokia 6.1 Plus

Nokia 6.1 Plus is a stunning looking phone and is priced around Rs. 15000 in India. The design and display on this phone are just gorgeous. Nokia has gone with a notch display this time and it looks great. It has a 19:9 aspect ratio and Full HD+ display. It is one of the best displays in under 15000 category smartphones.

The phone has a glass design and is very well built. Because of 5.8 inch display and thin bezels, the overall size of the device is small compared to other 6 inch phones like Redmi Note 5 Pro. You won't face any trouble with one hand usage. 

Inside the Nokia 6.1 Plus, we have a Snapdragon 636 chipset which is a great performer. The RAM is 4GB and storage is 64GB. The phone runs on stock android with no bloatware at all. Overall performance is very snappy with no lag whatsoever. You can play heavy games on it or use a ton of apps and this device will be able to handle it. 

The camera on the rear is a 16MP+5MP dual sensor for portrait mode pictures. The front selfie camera is a 16MP sensor which can also take portrait mode pictures and is also used for Face unlock. The camera performance is great in outdoor well-lit conditions. Camera performance is more or less the same as Redmi Note 5 Pro. 

The negative point about Nokia 6.1 Plus is the battery. It is just a 3060 mAh battery which would last for a day on medium usage. The phone does support QuickCharge 3.0 so you will be able to charge your phone quickly if you have a fast charger.

Overall, it is a great phone from Nokia with gorgeous design and excellent performance. The pricing is really good and it gives tough competition to phones like Asus Zenfone Max Pro and Redmi Note 5 Pro. It is our favorite phone in this range.

3. Honor 9N

Honor 9N is very similar to Honor 9 Lite. The main thing that has changed is the display. Honor 9N comes with a notch display which is a trend these days. The display size is 5.84 inches and the resolution is Full HD Plus. It is a nice display with good colors and viewing angles. The overall glass design of the phone gives it a premium look. Because there is no metal and the battery capacity is just 3000, the phone is very lightweight and easy to use. The glass back looks great but it is very slippery so having a case would be a good choice to protect the phone.

The camera on the Honor 9N is a dual 13MP+2MP sensor for taking portrait mode bokeh effect shots. The front camera is a single 16MP sensor and it can also take bokeh effect pictures. The camera performance is good in good lighting conditions. Under low light indoor conditions, the performance is average.

The battery on this phone is 3000mAh and you can expect just a day of backup on a single charge. Heavy users might need to plug the device in the evening. 

The phone comes in 3 variants: 3GB 32GB, 4GB 64GB and 4gb 128GB. The first one is priced at 11999, second at 13999 and the 128GB storage variant is priced at 17999. The middle variant 4GB 64GB is the most balanced one and provides the best value for money. The Kirin 659 processor with 4GB of RAM is a good configuration to handle multitasking and gaming. Performance wise, the Kirin 659 chipset is similar to Snapdragon 625. 

Go for Honor 9N if you are looking for a notch display phone under 10000 to 15000 Rs. If notch display is not a requirement then Asus Zenfone Max Pro or Redmi Note 5 Pro are better options.

4. Redmi Y2

Redmi Y2 is a camera smartphone from Xiaomi. Last year Xiaomi launched the Y1 with a great selfie camera. The Y2 gets dual rear camera as well so it is a good upgrade. The Redmi Y2 comes with a 6 inch 18:9 aspect ratio display of HD+ resolution. The build quality of the phone is solid. The design is same as other Xiaomi phones so nothing special there. It looks decent overall.

Redmi Y2 is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 chipset which is the same processor we saw on various other Xiaomi phones like Note 4, Note 5, Max 2. Snapdragon 625 is a decent performer and is very power efficient. There are 2 variants available: 3GB-32GB and 4GB-64GB. Both variants perform well and are capable of handling multiple apps and games without any issues. If you are a heavy user, go for 4GB RAM variant.

The camera is the USP of Redmi Y2 so let's talk about it. The rear camera is a dual 12MP+5MP setup similar to what we saw on Redmi Note 5 Pro. The camera performs really well in outdoor conditions. Images are sharp with good colors. Portrait mode works great and edge detection is good with decent bokeh effect on the back. 

The front selfie camera of the Redmi Y2 is a 16MP sensor with a Flash which helps to improve image quality in low light conditions. The Y2 can also take portrait mode selfies. Front camera uses AI Beautification to makes your images look better. You will be impressed by its performance. 

Redmi Y2 comes with a 3080 mAh capacity battery which will last for a day on a single charge. Redmi Y2 runs on MIUI 9.5 which is a skin based on the latest Android 8.1. Redmi Y2 is a great phone for those who take a look of pictures. It also performs well in other areas.

5. Moto G6

Moto G series phones have been our favorite phones over last few years. Motorola has done well with the design time and the Moto G6 looks like a premium device thanks to the glossy reflective back panel and large 18:9 aspect ratio display on the front with Full HD resolution. The display panel is sharp with good color reproduction.

The Moto G6 is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 chipset which is the latest chipset in 400 series and its performance is similar to Snapdragon 625 processor. There are 2 variants: 3GB-32GB and 4GB-64GB. The software is stock android with almost no bloatware so even the 3GB RAM variant works smooth and you won't face any lags. Games also run fine on both variants. However, if you are going to use a lot of apps and games then we recommend the 4GB 64GB variant of the Moto G6.

The Moto G6 comes with a 12MP + 5MP dual camera on the back side and a 16MP camera sensor on the front for taking selfies. Both cameras perform really well outdoors. Indoor performance of cameras is just decent. The camera interface is slow and can be frustrating at times. 

Moto G6 is a balanced smartphone overall. It looks great and performs well. We would have loved a more powerful processor here like the Snapdragon 636 which would have made it a great deal.

6. Asus Zenfone Max Pro M1

Asus Zenfone Max Pro was launched as a Flipkart exclusive smartphone. It has a 5.99 inches Full HD Plus display which is very bright and clear and one the top-notch quality in this pricing. It is packed with performance as it is powered by the powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 which has an Antutu Benchmark score of 110000 and has 4 GB of RAM. It can easily handle games at highest graphics setting and multiple apps together. 

In the camera department, it has a dual rear camera having 13 MP and 5 MP sensors which clicks beautiful photos which are crisp and sharp. It also clicks beautiful portrait shots. On the front camera, we have an 8 MP sensor which is not the best and struggles a lot in the low lighting conditions. It has a storage of 64 GB onboard which can be expanded up to 2 TB via the dedicated MicroSD card slot. 

It has a battery rated at 5000 mAh which lasts for more than 1.5 days and can even extend up to 2 days. Another positive point about this laptop is that it runs on Stock Android with Android Oreo 8.0 with assured updates of Android P and Q versions.

7. Redmi Note 5 Pro 4GB

The Redmi Note 5 Pro is the Pro variant of Redmi Note 5 and is a lot more powerful than the Note 5. 

The overall design and display is same as Redmi Note 5 but the processor inside the dual camera on the back and front selfie camera are much better. Inside you have Snapdragon 636 which is 80% more powerful than Snapdragon 625 on Redmi Note 5. Apps open and close very fast and overall experience is very snappy. 

The cameras have received a major upgrade as well. There is a dual camera on the back with 12MP+5MP sensors. The camera takes beautiful photos with depth/blue effect also known as portrait mode.

The front selfie camera is also great. It is a 20MP camera sensor and takes beautiful shots. It can also take portrait mode pictures.
