Don’t want to spend a lot but still want a phone with good features? Many budget phones have launched in the market to give you good features at a very decent price. There are plenty of options and all you need to do is to pick the phone that is the most suitable for you and caters to your needs. Although few compromises need to be made to make these phones available at a lower price level there might be few amazing features that might stand out for you.

Some budget phones can still give you the best camera options or the smooth experience or maybe be packed with amazing battery life, the choice is yours. Now, not expanding your budget to buy the flagship phones definitely won’t limit your options of good smartphones for you to purchase.

Infinix Hot 9 Play

Infinix is relatively new to the Nepalese smartphone market. The Infinix Hot 9 play is targeted towards consumers requiring a large battery. It has a massive 6000mAh battery, the biggest among our list. The phone can easily last upto two days with moderate usage. The rest of the specs are not as impressive as their battery. The phone has got large 6.82 inches but with an HD+ resolution display panel.

Interestingly, the phone has two different chipsets for different variants. The 2GB/32GB variant has MediaTek Helio A22(Quad-core, 12nm) processor, and other 3GB/32GB, 3-4/64GB variants have got MediaTek Helio A25(Octa-core, 12nm) processor. It has a dual-camera setup on the back with a 13MP primary sensor and a QVGA low light sensor. The selfie camera is an 8MP sensor. But the phone comes with micro USB 2.0 without fast charging support. So, the phone is going to take forever to charge which should be taken into consideration.

Motorola Moto E7 Plus

2020’s entry-level chipset which uses the same Adreno 610 GPU seen on the Snapdragon 662 and with that 48MP main sensor and massive 5000mAh battery, these specs are pretty good for an entry-level budget smartphone. The downside for me is the use of traditional micro-USB port.

Samsung M11

The brand value of Samsung and a large battery are the main selling points of Samsung M11. The device offers a 5000mAh battery which is a pretty good offering from the company. The phone also comes with a 15W Type-C fast charger which is always a nice feature to have considering the battery size. Apart from the battery, there is a 6.4″ HD+ PLS TFT display panel with a 19.5:9 ratio. The phone performs fairly well with Snapdragon 450 processor along with Adreno 506 GPU considering the price point. Apart from those, it packs a triple rear camera. It has 13MP, f/1.8 primary lens, 5MP, f/2.2 ultrawide camera, and a 2MP depth sensor. In the selfie department, there is an 8MP, f/2.0 camera.

Realme C12

Realme C12’s highlighting feature is its massive 6000 mAH battery which is an upgrade over the previous C12. The phone has 6.5 inches mini-drop HD+ IPS LCD display panel with 270 PPI density. The screen is covered by Corning Gorilla Glass. So, the phone should survive a few minor drops and scratches. The phone is powered by MediaTek Helio G35 chip-set. This processor is a new trend in budget-level smartphones. It is an octa-core CPU based on Cortex-A53 architecture running at 2.3 GHz speed. The processor is supported by PowerVR GE8320 GPU as well. So, the phone has got the potential to handle day to day tasks easily. But, it cannot handle intensive games at very best settings.

In terms of camera department, there is a triple camera setup on the back. It has 13 MP primary camera along with 2MP B/W sensor and a 2MP macro lens. The camera module on the back features an LED flash as well. In terms of selfie shooter, there is a single 5 MP camera with features like HDR and panorama. The device has a fingerprint scanner on the back for security. It comes with Android 10 out of the box with Realme UI 1.0 on top. But charging the phone still remains a concern because it has a huge battery and it supports only 10W charging via micro-USB port. In addition, the phone comes in two color options, Power Silver and Power Blue.

Realme C15

Like Realme C12, C15 offers pretty much the same specs. However, there is an upgraded camera module and fast charging on the latter one. It has a quad-camera setup on the back. It has 13 MP primary camera along with a 2MP B/W sensor and a 2MP retro lens. In addition, there is an 8MP ultra-wide-angle lens. The addition of a wide-angle lens is a very good approach from the company, considering the price point. Realme C15 gets an upgrade in the selfie department as well. It has got an 8MP selfie camera as compared to 5MP on the C12.

The display remains the same on both phones. It has 6.5″ HD+ IPS LCD display panel with 1600 X 720 pixels resolution. MediaTek Helio G35 powers the phone along with PowerVR GE8320 GPU. The phone is covered by Corning Gorilla Glass for protection against scratches and minor drops. There is a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner for security. Realme C15 comes with Android 10 out of the box with Realme UI 1.0 on top. Similarly, the phone comes in two color options, Power Silver and Power Blue.

Redmi 9C

Redmi 9C shares a similar build, design and display as Redmi 9A in many ways. But in terms of performance, there is an upgraded chip-set from the company. The phone is powered by slightly faster MediaTek Helio G35 SoCwhic is a budget gaming-focused processor. So, we can expect decent performance from the device for the price.

Redmi 9C Nepal

There is an improvement in the camera department. A square camera module on the back holds a triple camera setup with an LED flash, as compared to a single camera on Redmi 9A. The company has also provided a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor as an improvement over 9A. LPDDR4X RAM is a good choice from the company. So, we can expect the phone to be fast in opening apps and multitasking. Redmi 9C comes with a large 5000mAh battery which should last a day with medium usage. But, charging the phone can take some time considering 10W micro-USB charger supported. Along with that, the phone comes with Android 10 out of the box with MIUI 12.

Poco C3

The same case for Poco C3 can be seen as for the Poco M2. It is completely identical to the Redmi 9C internally and externally except for the Poco branding and ad-free Poco launcher inside. Probably to sell the phone, Poco offers an extra 1GB of RAM for the same price as Redmi 9C. So, as a customer you shouldn’t hesitate to go for this if you are lookin at the higher variant.
