Here's the list of TOP 10 Best Mobile Phones Under 25000 in India 2018

1. Huawei P20 Lite

Huawei P20 Lite comes with a 5.84 inches full view display with a notch design. It has FHD Plus resolution and aspect ratio of 19:9. The display is bright with perfect colour quality and looks bright and clear even in outdoor lighting. In terms of design, it is a very beautiful phone with a glass back that has 2.5 D glass protection and a multicoloured textured back design that displays different patterns at different angles.

This phone is powered by the Kirin 659 Processor along with 4 GB of RAM. This processor can handle multitasking smoothly and has good gaming performance. It has an Antutu Benchmark of 75000 which lags behind the likes of Redmi Note 5 Pro in terms of performance. It has internal memory of 64 GB  which can be expanded up to 128 GB using a hybrid MicroSD card slot.

On the camera part, it comes with a rear dual camera of 12 MP + 2 MP sensor and it clicks beautiful shots in different lighting conditions. The camera application has various modes like HDR, Pro etc. It also supports bokeh effects/Portrait Shots and slow-motion videos that work great given the price range of under 20k. The front camera is a 16MP sensor and the images are perfect and look beautiful. The camera does some processing through its software processing to adjust the colour, tone etc. The front camera also supports bokeh shots using software processing which is not great but decent enough.

There is a 3000 mAh battery that can keep the phone powered up for a day and there is also a fast charger in the box which can charge the phone to 100 per cent in just 1 hour 30 minutes. It runs on Android 8.1 operating system with EMUI 8.0 which has some new features but some bloatware as well. The UI is smooth to use and we did not face any issues.

Overall, it is a very beautiful phone, with an amazing camera and also supports fast charging. The performance is also decent but not the best in this price range. If you are not into gaming or using multiple apps together, then this phone offers decent value for money for under 20000.

2. Samsung Galaxy A6 Plus

Samsung Galaxy A6 Plus is one of the best phones if you are looking for a Samsung phone with a budget of 25k. It has a 6 inch Full HD Super AMOLED display which is bright, crisp and best in this price range. The design of the phone is totally premium and with a metal design, the phone has solid quality.

It is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 processor which has an Antutu of around 57000.  It is the same processor used in budget segment Redmi 5 smartphone. So the performance is not the best as per the price range where other smartphones are offering Snapdragon 835 in this price range. It has 4 GB of RAM with 64 GB of internal memory which can be expanded up to 256 GB. You can easily perform your day to day tasks with decent multitasking and play low to mid-level games but the high-end games face some frame drops.

The camera is the most promising feature of this Samsung Galaxy A6 Plus where it is absolutely stunning with top grade images. It has a dual rear camera with 16 MP and 2 MP sensor and the front camera has a 24 MP sensor. The camera images from both front and rear are excellent and we have no complaints whatsoever.

It runs on Android 8.0 Oreo operating system with the custom Experience 9.0 UI over it. Stock android could have been a lot better as the UI comes with bloatware with some Samsung apps that cannot be removed. It has a 3500 mAH battery that can power the phone for around one single day with normal usage.

Overall, leaving the performance aside, Samsung Galaxy A6 Plus has great design, the best camera in this price range with solid build quality that adds to this life. If you have a budget of 25k and are looking for a Samsung device, this phone can be a good choice.

If you are not looking only for Samsung phones then you can look at Nokia 7 Plus and Honor 10 as another alternative in this price range.
