Top 10 Phones Under Rs 50,000
1. Oppo Reno 8 Pro 5G
IP52 rating, slim and elegant design
AMOLED display with 120Hz refresh rate
Stereo speakers with crystal clarity
Fast charging at 80W
Excellent for gaming
Excellent software performance
The Oppo Reno 8 Pro 5G is the brand's most expensive smartphone on the market in India right now. While its core hardware is more in line with mid-range smartphones priced under Rs. 40,000, it compensates with a premium build quality and fluid software experience. The design is the star here, and its high-quality 120Hz AMOLED panel with razor-thin bezels certainly helps it stand out. While the camera performs admirably in daylight, it falls short in low light. . Battery life is one of the Oppo Reno 8 Pro 5G's strong points, as is charging speed, which, despite being capped at 80W, is quite fast.
2. Realme GT 2 Pro
A flagship-level 2K display
Long battery life, quick charging
OS with a lot of features and promised updates
The Realme GT 2 Pro is the most expensive smartphone in Realme's lineup. The white and green versions start at Rs. 49,999 for the 8GB RAM and 128GB variant and include a unique paper-like back made from renewable sources. Aside from the design, there is a high-quality 2K AMOLED LTPO panel with a 120Hz refresh rate that is suitable for watching videos and playing games. The phone is powered by Qualcomm's top-tier Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 SoC, which means it has enough processing power for some intense gaming. The cameras are adequate for a smartphone at this price point, as is the battery life, thanks to the 5,000mAh capacity.
3. Motorola Edge 30 Pro
AMOLED display with 144Hz refresh rate
Fast charging with a powerful SoC 68W
Near-stock Android 12 with updates
Excellent selfie camera
Motorola Edge 30 Pro is also a top contender in the sub-Rs 50,000 segments, thanks to its excellent value for money and performance. The phone is only available in a single 8GB RAM/128GB storage configuration, but it is priced competitively at Rs. 44,999. This Moto phone's flagship features an AMOLED display with a maximum refresh rate of 144Hz, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 SoC, two 50-megapixel cameras on the back, and a front-facing 60-megapixel selfie camera. There's a large 4,800mAh battery to help with battery life, as well as an IP52 rating for dust and water resistance. The icing on the cake is Motorola's software, which is nearly stock with a few Moto tweaks thrown in.
4. Realme GT Neo 3 (150W)
The main camera of high quality
Wired charging of 150W
Excellent battery life
Experience with fluid software
First, it looks like the part, with racing stripes on the back panel, and then there's the 150W charger, which can charge the phone from 0% to 100% in just 16 minutes. Its cameras have also been vastly improved over the previous GT Neo 2. While we strongly recommend this smartphone, its gaming performance fell short of our expectations, and it is slightly overpriced. If you can live with slower charging, the standard Realme GT Neo 3 costs a little less and has the same core specifications.
5. Asus 8z
Small size, high build quality
The Asus 8z packs a lot of smartphone functionality into a small package. With a Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 SoC, it lags in the processor race, but it still packs enough power for a flagship smartphone. The 8z, unlike most other models in this category, has a dual rear camera setup with a 64-megapixel primary camera and a 12-megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera. Being a small phone has its drawbacks, so keep the Asus 8z's smaller-than-usual 4,000mAh battery in mind, which lasted 10 hours and 15 minutes in our HD video loop battery test. Aside from the battery life, this is the most compact flagship phone on this side of a Samsung Galaxy S22.
6. Samsung Galaxy S21 FE 5G
Good build quality and lightweight
Display with 120Hz refresh rate
IP68 rating and wireless charging in a polished software experience
Quick all-around performance
The Galaxy S21 FE 5G from Samsung is the successor to the Galaxy S20 FE 5G. The S21 FE 5G's upgrades are mostly incremental, so the difference is primarily due to the new design. It resembles the Galaxy S21 series more than the newer S22 models, but it still manages to look fresh. It's also lightweight and thin, making it ideal for one-handed use. The Exynos 2100 SoC from the Galaxy S21 series is a significant upgrade here, and it performs admirably in gaming. The S21 FE 5G retains all of the good features of the S20 FE 5G, including wireless charging and IP68 dust and water resistance certification.
7. Nokia XR20
Excellent build quality and design
Useful Emergency key
The Nokia XR20 takes all those memes about the Nokia 3310's durability to a whole new level. The Nokia XR20's design suggests that it can withstand a lot of abuse. While most rugged smartphones have chunky, pseudo-military styling, HMD Global has made this phone look distinct and modern. It isn't "bulletproof," but it can withstand multiple drops from a height of 6 feet, as well as a dip in a pool, and it works better than most phones with water on their displays. In short, it is designed to withstand and perform in all types of weather. However, performance is not its strong suit, and its cameras are at best average.
8. OnePlus 9RT
Beautiful design and construction
Display that is crisp and vibrant
Excellent battery life
A primary camera that works well
Overall performance is smooth.
In terms of design and build quality, the OnePlus 9RT offers better value for money and is more OnePlus than the OnePlus 10R, which is also on this list. The phone also includes Qualcomm's Snapdragon 888 SoC, which is significantly more powerful than the one found in the 10R. Despite its average overall camera performance, this, along with its excellent battery life, high-quality AMOLED display, and OxygenOS software, make it a good buy in the segment.
9. iPhone 11
Outstanding battery life
The addition of Night Mode is much appreciated.
iOS provides regular and timely updates.
The iPhone 11's official starting price of Rs. 49,900 has been reduced by Apple, but it is frequently available online for less than Rs. 46,999. This is only for the base 64GB model, but it's an iPhone, and not an old one. The iPhone 11 brought an ultra-wide camera to Apple's non-Pro models and is powered by the A13 Bionic SoC. Because this is an iPhone, you should expect to receive timely software updates for at least a few more years. The cameras are excellent, the battery life is excellent, and it comes in a variety of colors.
10. OnePlus 10T
Triple camera, 50 MP + 8 MP + 2 MP, LED flash
The single selfie camera, 16 MP
1080x2412, 394 PPI, 6.7" Fluid AMOLED Screen,
120Hz Refresh Rate
The OnePlus 10T has a bezel-less design, a punch hole camera, and a 6.7" display with a refresh rate of 120Hz. This smartphone is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chipset (64-bit Octa-core 3.19 GHz ARM Cortex-X2 + ARM Cortex-A710 + ARM Cortex-A510 4nm processor) and runs the Android 12 operating system. This smartphone is powered by a massive 4800 mAh battery and includes 150W fast charging. At the back of this smartphone is a 50 MP triple camera.
