Best Phones with Quad HD (QHD, 2K) Display in India (2018)

Note: With almost all new releases in the last 6 months coming with FHD resolution, we have effectively stopped updating this post. To get a QHD phone check our lists of best phones under Rs 45,000 and above Rs 50,000.

QHD screens are packed with so many pixels that it is hard to look at them and not be impressed. Yes, 1080p might be sufficient, but QHD (also called Quad HD or 2K) displays on a phone have their own charm. Luckily there are quite a few phones under Rs 40,000 that offer Quad HD display.

Gaming, watching videos, or simply browsing the net, everything looks better on a higher resolution display (given the content is available). We’ve put together the list of the best phones with Quad HD (QHD) display under Rs 40,000 in India for this month. For anything above, check the list of top 10 phones under Rs 45,000.

The pros and cons mentioned against these devices are based on their price segment. Also, they have been arranged in ascending order of price. For the record, by QHD/2K we mean a resolution of 1440 x 2560 pixels. So here are the best phones with QHD display in India.
