Xiaomi 11i HyperCharge 5G and Samsung Galaxy M52 5G are good phones to consider under Rs 30,000.
Smartphones under Rs 30,000 are no longer sub-standard as OEMs are heavily updating this segment to gain an edge over the phone market. India’s smartphone market continues to boom, but there’s still a demand for quality mid-budget phones. Many of the leading brands like OnePlus, Xiaomi, Micromax and more have launched their premium mid-budget smartphones that feature eye-catching specifications. If you’re planning to buy smartphones under Rs 30,000 in March 2022, here’s a list you should consider. Some of these phones may also be receiving a temporary price cut and bank deals on e-commerce sites, so cross-check prices before you make the final decision.
Micromax In Note 2: Though not exactly a mid-budget smartphone, this ‘made in India’ Micromax In Note 2 deserves recognition for offering a clean Android OS experience.
