OnePlus Nord

We reviewed the OnePlus Nord and absolutely loved the device, especially the cameras. The price of the OnePlus Nord starts at Rs 24,999 and is available on Amazon as well as the OnePlus store. This is a 5G enabled smartphone with a fresh design and quad rear cameras. The camera module includes 48MP + 8MP + 5MP + 2MP sensor while on the front there are two 32MP + 8MP cameras. The Nord is powered by Snapdragon 765G paired with up to 12GB RAM and 256GB internal storage. The phone packs a 4115mAh with fast charging support.

Redmi K20 Pro

This is an old device but still one of the best available under the price of Rs 25,000. Unlike other Redmi phones, this one doesn’t come with annoying ads and has a Poco launcher pre-installed to offer a better experience to its users. The Redmi K20 Pro looks stunning and out-of-the-box thanks to its unique gradient design. Besides the good looks, the phone is also powerful as well as clicks stunning pictures in all lighting conditions including low light. The battery also lasts very long, almost over a day even in extensive usage. The Redmi K20 Pro currently starts at Rs 24,999 in India.
