It has 13MP + 8MP + 5 MP + 2MP rear camera while there is 8MP selfie shooter. The cameras are kind of average but considering the price tag, one should not complain.

Now under Rs 15000, you have tons of options and to choose one smartphone is kind of difficult, so I have selected two smartphones.

If you want a true 5G smartphone and if you’re okay with an LCD display then just go with Moto G51 5G (review). It has the best camera setup under 15k and it also has a powerful processor which will help a lot while gaming.

The Moto G51 5G is powered by Snapdragon 450+ and runs on Stock Android 11 while Redmi Note 10S (review) has MediaTek Helio G95 SoC and it runs on MIUI 12-based on Android 11.

Overall, if you want an AMOLED display and if you live with decent performance then the Redmi Note 10s is a good option otherwise, one should go with Motorola G51 5G for overall, better performance.

Now it’s not like the cameras are bad but compared to some other phones like RealMe 9 Pro 5G, POCO needs to work on cameras.

Still, the phone has better specs compared to RealMe 9 Pro 5G expect good cameras.

I mean, the only phone that comes with a 120hz AMOLED display with 5G support.

If your budget is Rs 20,0000 and if you want the overall best smartphone then don’t look for anything else, you can consider the POCO X4 Pro 5G over Redmi Note 10 Pro & RealMe 9 Pro 5G.

Motorola is back with a bang, the newly launched Motorola Edge 30 Pro is the best smartphone money can buy for under Rs 50,000 in India.

The cameras are also great, it takes good images, and also, the OIS helps a lot in videos and even in photos too.

The Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 is a powerful processor, no issue with performance too while it runs on Android 12 and it will get OS updates for up to two years.

The battery lasts for the day while the 68W charger will take only 35 minutes to charge from 0% to 100% and the phone also has 15W wireless charging support.

Can’t say much about the display as this is bar the best you can get under 50k, by the way, it has a 144Hz 10-bit OLED display.

It also has 5G support and Motorola has added 13 5G bands which include n1, n3, n5, n7, n8, n20, n28, n38 n40, n41, n66, n77, and n78.

iPhone 13 Pro – Under 1 Lakh

Display6.10 XDR Retina Display
ProcessorA15 Bionic chipset
OSOneUI 3.0-based on Android 11
Cameras (Rear)12MP Primary + 12MP Ultra-Wide Rear
12MP Front
Price128GB Storage: Rs 79,999

No price for guessing, iPhone 13 is one of the best options under 1 Lakh. You can go with Samsung S20 Series but the Indian version has an Exynos chip, so I don’t recommend it.

I don’t have to say much about the performance because the A15 bionic is powerful enough to handle everything. The cameras are also good and the build is also premium.

Again, iPhone 13 is pricy in India but if you can spend 1 lakh then iPhone would be a good option.

Also, if you can go above 1 Lakh then do a take look at iPhone 13 Pro.
