Here's the list of The TOP 10 Phones Under 35000 (35k) in India 2018 with Reviews

1. OnePlus 6

OnePlus 6 has one of the best designs and performance when it comes to the budget flagship smartphone. This smartphone is the successor of OnePlus 5T and was launched in May 2018 and has been a sensation like other OnePlus smartphones.

It comes with 6 inch AMOLED panel display which has a Full HD Plus resolution. The display is vibrant and is the best you would see for a phone in the budget of under 40k. The aspect ratio is 19:9 with a notch design. The phone looks amazingly great with a glass back and you cannot get your eyes off it.

OnePlus 6 is powered by the industry best and most powerful mobile processor, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 which has the Antutu Benchmark Score of 270000 and easily beats any other smartphone in the industry. It is backed by 6 GB of RAM and the performance is super smooth. You can easily play multiple games, run multiple applications and do anything but there is no sign of lag or issues with the smartphone.  It has 64 GB of internal memory and there is also a 2nd variant which has 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal memory and can be checked here.

On the camera side, again this smartphone does an amazing job. It has a dual rear camera of 16MP + 20MP sensor while the front camera is a 16MP sensor. There is support of both OIS and EIS on the rear camera and the front camera has support for EIS. The video recording would be a lot smoother and not shaky with these features. Both the camera have very accurate colour reproduction to what your eyes see and is amazed us. The rear camera also supports 4K video recording and slow-motion videos.

It has a battery rated at 3300 mAh which powers the phone for around one day easily. It comes with a dash charger that can charge your phone up to 50 per cent in just 30 minutes. It runs on Android 8.1 Oreo operating system and no bloatware so the user experience is best. It also supports face and fingerprint unlocking which are both fast and accurate.

Overall, it is an excellent phone with top-notch performance, beautiful design, amazing camera, dash charging and stock android. It is the best phone you get for a budget of 35000 to 40000.

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.

3. 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.
