Here's the list of 10 Best Phones Under 30000 in India (Bezel-less & Dual Camera)

1. Vivo V11 Pro

Vivo V11 Pro is the successor of Vivo V9 which was launched earlier this year. Vivo V11 Pro is a big upgrade over V9 and brings flagship features to the midrange. The phone is lightweight and easy to hold. It is not a metal body which helps to keep the weight low. The back has a color gradient and is black on the upper half and blue on the lower half. The back looks really nice. 

The display on the front is 6.4 inch Super AMOLED panel. Vivo has added a very small notch which houses the front camera. The bezels are thin all around and the display of body ratio is over 91% which is incredible for a midrange phone. The display panel is gorgeous with punchy colors and good viewing angles. The phone looks very premium overall.

Under the display, there is a fingerprint sensor. This is a 4th gen under-display fingerprint sensor. It is still not as fast as normal fingerprint sensors but it is close. There is also IR face unlock feature so you can unlock the phone with your face in low light conditions as well. 

The camera on the back is dual pixel 12MP sensor with 5MP depth sensor to take portrait mode pictures. The front camera is a 25MP sensor. Both cameras take excellent pictures in daylight conditions and good pictures in low light conditions. The camera performance is comparable to the flagship phones. The video recording isn't great though. We hope Vivo improves video recording with a software update. It would be great to see EIS and 1080p at 60FPS on the V11 Pro.

The V11 Pro is powered by the Snapdragon 660 processor which is a powerful midrange chipset. There is 6GB of RAM to handle the multitasking and 64GB of storage. The phone performs well with no lag in the day to day usage. You can also play heavy games like PUBG and Asphalt 9 without any issues.

The battery inside the V11 Pro is 3400 mAh and would last for a day on medium usage. The display is AMOLED so you can use dark wallpapers to increase the battery life. 

Overall, Vivo V11 Pro is a great smartphone and we are impressed by the performance and features. If you are looking for a smartphone at a price of around 25k, this is the phone you should buy.

The display on Poco F1 is 6.18 inches notch display with 19:9 aspect ratio and Full HD+ resolution. There are bezels above the notch and there are bezels at the bottom as well so the device doesn't look as premium as OnePlus 6 and that's the only negaitve point of this device.

Even the lowest variant provides 6GB of RAM and 64GB of storage which will be more than enough for most of the users. 

Xiaomi Poco F1 runs on MIUI. The UI has changed though, thanks to the Poco launcher. It looks more like Stock Android now but it is not. There are a lot of customizations and it is still bloated with extra apps. Still, powerful chipset and plenty of RAM ensures that there is no lag even with the heaviest games like PUBG which run smoothly on Poco F1.

On the camera side, it uses Zeiss optics sensor which is the best.

6. 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.

7. Vivo X21

Vivo X21 is the budget flagship from Vivo but not with a flagship chipset. X21 is a stunning looking smartphone. The large notch display on the front and curved glass back give the phone a very premium look. The display is 6.28 inches large Super AMOLED panel which is vibrant, sharp and bright. The display quality is one of the in this range. The screen to body ratio is above 90% so the phone is not that big even with a large display.

The hardware inside the phone is good but not great. We get Snapdragon 660 processor with 6GB RAM and 128GB storage. The RAM and storage numbers are great but we wish the processor was Snapdragon 835 or 845. A flagship processor would have made this smartphone a much better deal. Snapdragon 660 isn't a bad processor at all. It can handle all types of apps and games with ease. It is just that in this range X21 is competing with OnePlus 6 and Honor 10 and both of them come with flagship grade processors.

The camera performance of the Vivo X21 is solid. There is a 2x12MP (Dual Pixel Sensor) + 5MP Dual Rear Camera and 2x12MP (Dual Pixel Sensor) Front Camera. Dual pixel cameras are great for capturing more light and improve the low light performance of the camera. Both rear cameras and front camera of the X21 perform really well in both outdoor and indoor conditions and you won't have any complaints. 

For security, the phone has Face unlock feature and fingerprint sensor as well. The USP of this device is the fingerprint sensor which is present under the display and you won't be able to see it. Vivo has done something very innovative here and this is the first phone in world with under the display fingerprint sensor. Both face unlock and fingerprint sensor are fast and accurate.

The battery is 3200 mAh and will last for a day on single charge. The phone supports fast charging and will fully charge the device in less than 2 hours.

Overall, Vivo X21 is a solid smartphone with stunning looks and good performance.
