The Best Phone You Can Purchase in India for Under 40,000 Rupees

Kutl Ahmedia


In India, this is an intriguing period for high-end smartphones. Prices are currently rising across the board in the sector as a result of inflation, currency swings, and the continued supply chain disruption. The sub-Rs. 30,000 and sub-Rs. 40,000 pricing bands are now receiving the focus of phone manufacturers instead of the Rs. 20,000 category. When the time comes to upgrade, many consumers in India are interested in upgrading to higher-end models as the market there is maturing.

With a price of up to Rs. 40,000, you may purchase some top-notch gadgets with modern specifications, plenty of processing power for gaming, and excellent camera quality. Manufacturers have gone to great pains to differentiate their products in terms of design, so you could notice things like super quick charging, an IP rating, and a ton of RAM and storage. Surprisingly, when compared to their more expensive equivalents, these phones also provide amazing value.

The top smartphones in India under 40,000 INR, as reviewed and evaluated by Gadgets 360, are listed below in no particular order.

Phone number 1

The Nothing Phone 1 should be at the top of your list if you're looking for a phone that defies convention or has an entirely unique appearance from anything else currently on the market. Anywhere you go, your phone will shine out because to its transparent design, which includes a set of deftly arranged LED light strips. Even though the lights don't change color, they can dance according to a ringtone, show the current level of charge when plugged in, and blink in response to notifications. This mid-range device definitely packs a punch, especially considering that its distinctive design is also IP53-rated for resistance to water and dust. Additionally, it provides wireless charging at an incredibly low beginning price. Nothing doesn't include a charger in the box, and charging speeds aren't the fastest in its category.

5G Endurance Edition for the OnePlus 10R

The OnePlus 10R's design, which has clean lines and sharp edges, is highly personal. Others could find it quite odd-looking and dissimilar from the typical OnePlus rounded and curved shapes, while some people might find it attractive. Regardless of your position, the OnePlus 10R Endurance Edition is quite appealing now that the price has dropped. It is one of the few smartphones in this market segment that support 150W cable charging, and a 160W charger is included in the box. Although the camera's performance is decent in both bright and dim light, it is not the best in its class. The MediaTek Dimensity 8100-Max SoC and 120Hz refresh rate display work nicely for gaming, and the battery life is also fairly decent. We must forewarn OnePlus fans that it does not have the recognizable Alert slider.

SM-A53 5G from Samsung

While the Samsung Galaxy A53 5G replaces the Galaxy A52s 5G and has many of the same features, it also has a sleeker appearance thanks to design cues from the high-end Galaxy S22 series. Those seeking a good gaming phone will need to search elsewhere because the new Exynos 1280 SoC only offers performance on par with low-cost devices. An added benefit is the IP67 designation for water and dust protection. In bright light, camera still and video performance is excellent; in dim light, it is average. With light use, this phone's 5,000mAh battery lasts two days. Although the phone supports 25W fast charging, Samsung did not offer a charger in the box.

Apple 11T Pro

With a mid-frame made of polycarbonate sandwiched between two pieces of glass, the Xiaomi 11T Pro isn't very distinctive in terms of style. But because to its Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 SoC, it offers good all-around performance. It's a terrific offer because of its appealing pricing and features. Accurate colors are displayed on its Dolby Vision-certified AMOLED display. Dolby Atmos compatibility provides stereo sound, enabling immersive video streaming. This phone has excellent battery life and may be used casually for up to two days on a single charge. A 120W fast charger is also included in the package. The quality of selfies in low light exceptions from the camera performance is fairly good.

an iQoo 9 SE

The iQoo 9 SE appears to be fairly upscale. Although there isn't a formal IP classification, the stereo speakers are excellent and produce terrific audio when streaming videos and playing games. Punchy colors are produced by the 6.62-inch 120Hz Super AMOLED display, which is HDR10+ certified. Although Android 12's software is slick and responsive, this phone has an excessive number of third-party apps preinstalled. The Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 SoC offers excellent gaming performance, and in our tests, the 4,500mAh battery lasted 1.5 days on a single charge. Although the camera's performance in natural light is remarkable, we had higher hopes for the ultra-wide-angle lens. Additionally, the iQoo 9 SE produces excellent selfies and amazing macro shots.

The Oppo Reno series has always been known for its eye-catching design, and the Reno 7 Pro is no exception. It boasts a glass back with a laser micro-etched finish. Very good colors and contrast are produced by the 6.5-inch full-HD+ 90Hz AMOLED panel, which also has Corning Gorilla 5 for scratch resistance. Games perform smoothly thanks to the specific optimizations on the Dimensity 1200-Max SoC from MediaTek. You get ColorOS 12, but it still uses Android 11 as its base rather than Android 12. The battery life is strong, and charging is really quick.

Samsung Edge 20 Pro

The 6.7-inch full-HD+ AMOLED display on the Motorola Edge 20 Pro offers a refresh rate of 144Hz. It is solidly constructed, and the front and back both include Corning Gorilla Glass 5 in addition to an aluminum frame. For resistance to water and dust, it has an IP52 rating. 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage are paired with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 SoC. A 30W charger and a 4,500mAh battery are included in the package. Motorola offers a nearly stock version of Android 12 with a few small customizations. A 108-megapixel primary camera, a 16-megapixel ultra-wide camera, and an 8-megapixel 5X telephoto camera are all featured on the Edge 20 Pro. Good photos were captured in the daylight, particularly close-ups. When photographing distant subjects, the telephoto lens might be helpful. But the performance of the low-light camera fell short of expectations.

Genuine GT Neo 2

This mid-range gaming smartphone is reliable. The cooling system does a superb job of maintaining the Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 processor's high levels of raw performance. Along with two more subdued hues, the Realme GT Neo 2 comes in a vivid Neo Green color. Even with moderate gaming, the 5,000mAh battery easily lasts a day and a half. When playing games or viewing movies, the two speakers, which are rather loud, provide an immersive experience. At best, camera performance is inconsistent. The GT Neo 2 is not an all-arounder since while daylight performance is superb, low-light photos and video weren't as impressive.

The GT Neo 3 from Realme, which we have not reviewed, was just released. The GT Neo 3 (150W), which is fairly comparable and did well in our tests, costs more than Rs. 40,000.
