[Sept 2020] Best Smartphones Under NPR. 40,000 in Nepal

connectips

As usual, the smartphones in this price bracket (Best Smartphones Under 40000 in Nepal) that I would gladly choose are from Xiaomi, realme and Samsung. Here, Samsung falls a little behind as compared to others in terms of its processor’s performance due to Exynos chipsets. Also, this price segment targets the upper mid-range consumers who prefer the best features that fall behind only slightly as compared to the flagships.

Let us look at the Pros and Cons of each smartphone to help you ease up on your decision. The order in which I have listed the smartphones do not determine which is better so, you can choose any from this list of Best Smartphones Under 40000 in Nepal as per your need.

Best Smartphones Under 40000 in Nepal:

Samsung Galaxy M31

Personally, I wouldn’t recommend this phone and rather ask you to look for Samsung smartphones under the NPR 30000 bracket which offer pretty much similar features as this one. But, if you are over the budget of NPR 30k and would only settle for a Samsung smartphone, this is the best choice in the market right now. Decent Exynos processor, AMOLED display, 64MP sensor and 6000mAh battery are some of its notable features.

realme 6

Out of all others in this list, this one packs everything as expected for this price range and doesn’t disappoint at all. Great gaming chipset, 90Hz refresh rate, 30W fast charging, versatile camera and latest software makes this one of the best mid-range smartphones in 2020. Well, until Realme 6 Pro arrives in Nepal. Only the highest variant i.e. of 8GB RAM and 128GB storage is available in Nepal and the pricing is pretty good when compared to the pricing in India.

Redmi Note 9 Pro Max

With a minimalist design, a gaming processor, a great battery backup, and a versatile camera system, one cannot go wrong while purchasing Redmi Note 9 Pro Max If not having a higher refresh rate and AMOLED panel is not a deal-breaker for you, I highly recommend this device to everyone looking for a mid-ranger in the market.

Redmi K20

The chipset here is still one of the fastest in 2020. The camera remains versatile enough lacking only slightly in megapixels. The phone falls behind its competitors in terms of battery capacity and fast-charging wattage. There are no other smartphones in this range that offer a full-screen display so if you are okay with a slightly slower and risky selfie pop-up, this is the phone that lets you flaunt the design in the level of flagships. This won’t be a bad purchase at all even after a year as compared to the bad Samsung smartphones that are launching for this price segment every month.
