Best Camera Phone Under 30000 in India
There are many great options to choose Best Camera Phone Under 30000 from when picking up a smartphone in India spread across the price, feature, and specification spectrum. We review hundreds of smartphones annually and put them through lots of tests to find out whether they are good enough to recommend. We check out their functionality, cameras, displays, batteries, applications, and physical construction quality, and we tell you everything you need to know about how they maintain in day-to-day use. There are the best smartphones below Rs 30,000.
1. Vivo V19
Vivo V19 is the successor of Vivo V17 and yet another selfie-centric smartphone of the company. Vivo has focused on the design and build quality of the device and the V19 feels like a premium device. The body is made of Corning Gorilla Glass 6 and gives a premium feel to the touch. Vivo also offers it in some interesting colors.
The 6.44-inch AMOLED display has full-HD + resolution and sharp output. It has excellent viewing angles, and the panel on the outside becomes bright enough. Vivo also offers an in-display fingerprint scanner on the Vivo V19 which is quick to unlock the device. Powering the smartphone is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 712 SoC which is weak. There is 8GB of RAM which helps the smartphone to handle day-to-day tasks well.
It has a quad-camera setup at the back and a dual-camera setup for selfies. We found that the camera performed well and the software was easy to use. The daylight camera performs well and the phone detects a good edge in portrait shots. Low-light camera performance is acceptable but shooting in night mode is slow.
2. Realme X3 SuperZoom
The Realme X3 SuperZoom features a periscope-style telephoto camera, which is the first time we’ve seen this price segment. The 8-megapixel telephoto camera has a 5x optical zoom and a maximum of 60x hybrid zoom. The camera performs very well during the day, but not at night. To help the latter, there is Night Mode, which is quite effective. The main 64-megapixel camera captures good photos in daylight but struggles a bit in low light. The X3 Superzoom can record video at 4K and the quality is good during the day, but maybe better when shooting at night.
The X3 Superzoom uses Qualcomm Snapdragon 855+ SoC, which provides plenty of processing power for apps and games. The phone also features a 120Hz refresh rate LCD panel, so the scroll feels fluid when scrolling through the menu. Battery life is also solid. The X3 Superzoom is also very well made and looks stylish. It is boosting stereo speakers, but the single bottom-firing speaker is much louder. The phone runs Realme UI based on Android 10.
3. Realme X2 Pro
Since its launch in India, Realme is ready for Xiaomi’s crown. It has been neck and neck so far, with constant opacity to see. Competing Redmi once again, Realme X2 Pro is one of the best phones in the company’s lineup and takes a good lead over the Redmi K20 Pro.
Where you get a slightly faster processing package, more RAM if you want it, arguably better camera setup, great fast charging capabilities, and a beautiful 90Hz display. While I personally like the notch-free design of the Redmi K20 Pro, it is not enough to give it an edge over the X2 Pro. The best part is that you can get it for less than Rs 30,000.
4. Redmi K20 Pro
Xiaomi launched its popular Redmi range of smartphones in the high-end segment with the Redmi K20 Pro. It offers a powerful processing package, a beautiful all-screen front, a pop-up selfie camera, a triple rear camera, and an in-display fingerprint scanner. It is no surprise that Xiaomi Redmi K20 Pro is one of the best phones you can find in India.
Incredibly surprising is that it is one of the best phones under Rs 30,000 that you can get. The Redmi series is known for aggressive pricing, but it takes things to a whole new level. Even the highest-end model of the K20 Pro tops out at Rs 30,000. If you are looking for a bang for your buck, it is no better than the Redmi K20 Pro.
5. Samsung Galaxy A51
We called the Samsung Galaxy A50 one of the best mid-rangers of 2019. The company is hoping to continue its hot streak with its 2020 successor – the Samsung Galaxy A51. The device bridges the gap between the more budget-friendly M-series devices and the Galaxy A71, with the A51 coming in the under-Rs 25,000 range.
You are still getting everything that you expect from a Samsung smartphone. A beautiful display, a solid mid-range processor, an excellent quad-camera setup at the back, smooth software experience, and good battery life. It is not as powerful as the A71 and a camera is not as good, but if you are hoping to save a good amount of money, the Galaxy A51 is a good choice.
