Top 3 phones under Rs 15,000 for playing PUBG and Fortnite.

 

1. Xiaomi POCO F1

Best phone under 15000 - Xiaomi POCO F1
6GB RAM, 64GB

6GB RAM, 128GB

What’s good:
Here is a solid OnePlus challenger that costs way less than it. Snapdragon 845 under Rs 20,000 is good enough to obliterate the competition. Think of a flagship feature and this phone has it. From dual cameras to 6GB RAM and a decent battery.

 

What could have been better:
The name’s a bit silly, no? Also, no NFC or wireless charging.

2. Redmi Note 8 Pro

Best phone under 20000 - Redmi Note 8 Pro
6GB RAM, 128GB storage

6GB RAM, 64GB storage

What’s good:
After a couple of incremental iterations, the new Note 8 Pro is a significant improvement over its predecessor. The new MediaTek processor blows the Snapdragon 712 out of water in gaming and synthetic benchmarks. And if you thought that the 48MP camera on the Note 7 Pro wasn’t good, Xiaomi has upped the game with a 64MP sensor this time around. We also like the large battery, enough RAM, and ample storage.

 

What could have been better:
Hybrid SIM slot.

Honor 9N
6GB RAM

4GB RAM

What’s good:
The Honor Play sports a flagship processor and comes with other great goodies like up to 6GB RAM and a large battery.

 

What could have been better:
Maybe the hybrid slot? Also, have you heard about the recent tussle between Huawei and Google? These are uncertain times for the fate of Android on Huawei.

4. Vivo Z1 Pro

Vivo Z1 Pro

What’s good:
This one offers a faster processor than the SD710 (although nothing too different or fast), has triple cameras on the back, and allows microSD slots. That’s what makes it better than the Realme X. That, and a very large battery.

 

What could have been better:
No complaints.

5. Realme 5 Pro

Best phone under 15000 - Realme 5 Pro
4GB RAM/ 64GB storage

6GB RAM/ 64GB storage

What’s good:
The Realme 5 Pro is a minor update over the Realme 3 Pro (what happened to Realme 4 Pro?), which was already a good phone by all accounts. It comes with a great processor, an ample number of cameras on the back, a dedicated expansion slot, a mammoth battery, Android 9.0 out of the box, and up to 8GB RAM. Everything you could ask for from a phone.

 

What could have been better:
Nothing.
