NOTE: The prices are listed based on the time of writing and might drop further.

Under ₹10,000 Range

1. Redmi 12C

A very good phone considering the price point. It captures surprisingly great photographs with good sharpness and detail. It has decent graphics and a good processor to support video games like COD. The battery is really long lasting.

Cons: The phone does not have 5G support and the build quality is average.

2. POCO C55

For a budget phone, this one is both attractive and sturdy. The best feature is the 50 MP dual camera setup with support for a bunch of modes such as Time-Lapse, Portrait Mode, HDR, Night Mode, and more. It also has a large HD+ screen so this one is great for those who require a budget phone majorly for clicking photos or content consumption.

₹10,000 – ₹20000 Range

3. Samsung Galaxy M13

This phone has a great camera at an affordable price and can even take decent low light photos. It also has an ultrawide lens and the display is protected with gorilla glass. The massive 6,000 mAh battery provides 2-3 hours of continuous power.

Cons: The selfie camera is not that great and the speed of charging is quite slow.

4. Moto G42

A steal for the price it is available at considering you get stereo speakers with Dolby Atmos support, a bright AMOLED display and excellent battery life. The UI is quite good as it has no ads or bloatware that is common in budget phones.

Cons: Not great for multitasking or power users. The camera is a little disappointing.

₹20,000 – ₹50,000 Range

5. iQOO Neo 7 Pro

Don’t go by the brand! This is a good option for power users and gamers thanks to its incredible performance. The AMOLED display boasts of astounding color accuracy with minimal deviation in both S-RGB and DCI-P3 color profiles.

Cons: It has no expandable storage and the front camera is average. The battery drains fast sometimes.

6. OnePlus 11R

It is the best android phone in its price range with its blazing-fast processor, exceptional camera stack and an impressive AMOLED display with HDR support and 120Hz refresh rate. It has a lag free software and a clean interface while the Alert Slider makes a comeback too.

Cons: While the charging is fast, there is no wireless charging.

₹50,000 – ₹1,00,000 Range

7. Google Pixel 7 Pro

This one has a brilliant display as well an awesome camera. The triple rear camera setup on the Pixel 7 Pro consists of a 50-megapixel primary shooter, a 12-megapixel ultra wide angle lens, and a 48-megapixel telephoto lens. It also has powerful AI implementation.

Cons: The size may be too big and the processor might feel a little underpowered for the price range.

8. Vivo X90 Pro

The Vivo X90 Pro is the first MediaTek Dimensity 9200-powered smartphone to arrive in the India market. The Vivo X90 Pro uses a triple rear camera setup that is co-developed with Zeiss. This includes a 50-megapixel Sony IMX989 shooter with a 1-inch type sensor, a 50-megapixel telephoto portrait shooter, and a 12-megapixel ultrawide angle lens. It has a lot of camera features which makes it ideal for smartphone photographers.

Above ₹1,00,000 Range

9. Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra

The Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra comes with a new custom Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chip that has a higher max clock speed than other Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chips that power other Android flagships. The camera is out of this world and the new 200-megapixel ISOCELL primary shooter comes with some interesting features like Astrophotography, Astro Timelapse, quad-pixel autofocus and more.

Cons: It can feel a little bulky.

10. Apple iPhone 14 Pro Max

It the first iPhone to come without the infamous notch, which was replaced by a Dynamic Island on the iPhone 14 Pro models. Apple’s new A16 Bionic chip still has the highest Geekbench score with an 1884 single core score and a 5348 multi-core score. The camera system has a 48-megapixel sensor and this one also has the best battery life ever on an iPhone.
