best gaming phones under 20000 for pubg

Yes, we know. PUBG is the fad right now and, obviously, we all can’t get our hands off of this addictive game. PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds or PUBG as most of the folks call it runs on multiple platforms but is most popular on Android phones.

If you’re in the market for a new phone and want one which can specifically offer the best graphics and the best frame rates for playing PUBG or Fortnight, we have compiled the list of 5 phones under Rs 20,000 which can run PUBG without breaking a sweat. Yes, we’ve considered other factors too, but GPU is the most important thing that stands out in the phones listed below.

So here are the best phones under Rs 20,000 for playing PUBG and other games.

Top 5 phones under Rs 20,000 for playing PUBG or Fortnite:

 

1. Xiaomi POCO F1

Xiaomi POCO F1
6GB RAM, 64GB

6GB RAM, 128GB

8GB RAM, 256GB

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 8GB RAM, to mammoth storage and a decent battery. We also have reports that it is getting the Android 9.0 update in India.

 

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

8GB RAM, 128GB 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.

3. Huawei Honor Play

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. Realme XT

Best phone under 20000 - Realme XT
4GB RAM, 128GB

6GB RAM, 64GB

8GB RAM, 128GB

What’s good:
The Realme XT carries the burden of being the first commercial launch with a 64MP sensor on the back. That, along with the other 3 cameras on the back and we’re hoping that the phone will excel in the camera department. Other specs are decent too, including Snapdragon 712, up to 8GB RAM and 128 gigs of storage, in-screen fingerprint sensor, fast charging and a decently large battery.

 

What could have been better:
No complaints.

5. Realme 5 Pro

Best phone under 20000 - Realme 5 Pro
4GB RAM/ 64GB storage

6GB RAM/ 64GB storage

8GB RAM/ 128GB 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.
