The biggest marketshare of mobiles, in terms of units, falls under the 10,000 to 20,000 segment with the maximum competition and launches in this space. Generally the biggest mark share belongs to brands like Vivo, Xiaomi, Oppo, Realme, Oneplus who has a very strong distributor and sales network. In fact these are the top brands that appears on page 1 of Amazon or Flipkart.
But I have noticed not many have steered some other brands ,which are available in the market. So here’s a list of other brands as well , that you can consider.
Brands : Samsung (Korea), Asus (Taiwan) , Nokia (Finland) and Micromax(India)
However, I would leave out Micromax from this list, given their poor reviews for quality performance in all their devices (be it phones or televisions)
Here are the top phones by Brand
1. A21S :
Costs 16,499 for their 4GB RAM, 64 GB storage variant.
Has 4 Cameras : (Quad Camera Setup: 48 MP (F2.0) Main Camera + 8 MP (F2.2) Ultra Wide Camera + 2 MP (F2.4) Depth Camera + 2 MP (F2.4) Macro Camera)
Comes with 5000 mah battery and 6.5 inch screen
Definitely a powerhouse when it comes to taking pictures from the looks of it.
Processor : Exynos 850 Octa Core Processor (would have desired a Snapdragon processor though)
Cons : TFT display with a resolution of 1600 * 720 p (Not exactly a Full HD Display)
Does a FHD display matter : FHD can have a much brighter and crisp display, esp when it comes to watching movies or Yotuube. However the A21s comes close to a FHD at 1600 as against 1920p resolution which can be partially compromised.
2. Sasmsung Galaxy M40 :
Costs 16,000 for their 6GB, 128GB variant and comes with a much desired Snapdragon 675 processor
Camera : 32MP + 8MP + 5MP triple rear camera; 16MP front facing camera; Rear Camera – F Number (Multiple):F1.7 , F2.2 , F2.2
Battery however is only 3500 mah
Comes with a 6’3 Full HD+ Display
3. Samsung Galaxy A80
Initially launched at 40K in August 2019, this phone is now available at 22,000 in a Flipkart sale.
Camera :” :Phone comes with a super cool rotating triple camera with a 48MP resolution
(48MP + 8MP | 48MP(F2.0) + 8MP(Ultra Wide/F2.2) + TOF (Time-of-Flight) 3D-Depth Rotating Camera)
Processor : Qualcomm Snapdragon 730G Octa core processor
Battery : 3700mah
The best part apart from camera is 8GB RAM and 128GB storage memory. You can’t get any good phone with a 8GB RAM at 21K along with such amazing features , esp from a brand like Samsung.
(Price will be updated to 22K from 23rd June onwards)
One of my most favourite brands, Asus is a brand that’s known for its motherboards and later moved to producing high quality phones. They are based out of Taiwan ( nowhere associated with China) and a very powerful electronics brand
4. Asus Zenfone Max Pro M2 :
Costs 18000 for their 4GB RAM, 64GB storage variant.
Processor : Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 Octa core processor.
Has a 6.26 Full HD Display , Corning Gorilla Glass 6
Camera : 12MP Sony IMX486, f/1.8, 1.25um, 6P Lens + 5MP Dedicated Depth Sensor, LED Flash, 4K Video Recording, EIS
Asus is a phone known for their performance, esp for multiple apps usage and gaming, and not really a phone for outstanding camera
Almost everyone owned a Nokia phone at some point of time in their lives. Nokia , a Finnish brand
5. Nokia 7.2
One of their most recent models , after their good success with the 6.1 Plus , Nokia 7.2 is an Android One phone. This means, your phone runs on stock android, without any bloated softwares, comes with the original Google Camera app (used in Pixel phones) .
With frequent updates by Android, running on the most latest operating system, Nokia is a great choice for people who want to have a lag-free phone, even after couple of years
Cost : 16,400
Camera : Triple Camera 48MP + 5MP + 8MP | 20MP Front Camera
Processor : Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 Processor
Comes with a 4GB RAM and 64GB Storage capacity
