The sub-Rs 30,000 segment of smartphones is probably one of the most competitive in India, with many manufacturers trying their best to grab a large market share. As a result, we have brands like vivo dominating the sub-Rs 30,000 category with a plethora of options, offering best-in-class features, unique design suggestions, and groundbreaking camera features.
Other smartphone brands such as OnePlus, Realme, and others have also established themselves at this price point with some options. However, most of the smartphones in this segment have some decent hardware. However, only a few of them offer some great design. So, if you are looking for a smartphone that offers a premium look and stylish design along with the latest features and specifications, then you have come to the right place. Here are some of the best designed smartphones under 30,000 rupees that you can buy in India.
The vivo V25 is undoubtedly one of the best and most premium smartphones we have seen recently in the sub-Rs 30,000 price category. The highlight of this beautiful smartphone is the all-new color-changing fluorite glass. The phone comes in two attractive color options: Surfing Blue and Elegant Black. In addition, Vivo has developed a new color-changing glass in the Surface Blue color option that reacts to sunlight and other sources of UV rays and turns from blue to green. This means that you can have two different colors in one smartphone (which is a really cool feature!).
On the other hand, the elegant black color offers a beautiful diamond texture that sparkles very majestically. Moreover, the Fluorite AG Glass used in vivo V25 feels ultra-smooth to the touch, while the matte texture and diffused surface coating makes it smudge-free. In addition, the model comes with an all-new slim and lightweight 2.5D body with a classic flat frame design that provides a comfortable grip. The phone is just 7.79mm thick and weighs 186g, making it the sleekest looking phone in this price segment.
vivo V25 also leads the segment with its 50MP HD selfie camera. The selfie camera has an eye autofocus feature that tracks your eyes and keeps you in constant focus. In addition, the smartphone delivers exceptional results in low-light photography, all thanks to its 64MP OIS night camera. The 64MP primary sensor has 1.4µm pixels combining four pixels into one that helps you take beautiful night photos. Moreover, Vivo V25 is loaded with Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) + Electronic Image Stabilization (EIS) support, which provides the much-needed stability for capturing great photos in low-light conditions. Apart from this, you get the option to record 4K on both the front and rear cameras, which is a rare feature at this price.
vivo V25 also features a new Bokeh Flare Portrait mode that uses Vivo’s exclusive bokeh algorithm to deliver dreamlike bokeh.
