10 Best Phones under Rs 30,000 – Rs 35,000 in India (2016)

best phones under Rs 35,000

Which are the best phones under Rs 35,000?

We’ve compiled a list of 10 best mobile phones under Rs 35,000 for this month. These phones should continue to get latest Android updates (Android 7.0) in the months to come and shouldn’t have problems running the most intensive games. They are also equipped with decent cameras to deliver good quality images.

Also, check the list of top 10 phones under Rs 30,000 and the top 10 phones under Rs 40,000. These phones are compatible with 4G LTE network offered by Airtel and upcoming ones such as Vodafone, Idea and Reliance, so no worries there.

Not to confuse you with the camera specs listed below. We’ve listed the specs as (megapixels), (aperture), (OIS-if present), (sensor size). Generally speaking, bigger the aperture and sensor size, better is the camera. Which means smaller number in the denominator, the bigger the aperture or sensor size is. For example, f/1.9 is a bigger aperture and than f/2.0. Also 1/2.2″ is a bigger sensor than, say, 1/2.6″. A bigger aperture camera performs much better in low light situations and produces sharper images. It also produces a better brokeh. Also, OIS refers to optical image stabilisation, which helps in reducing blur.

Also, we’ve highlighted our top 3 picks in this budget at the beginning of the list. So here are the top 4G phones under 35k in India for this month:
