Share on Facebook Tweet Share Reddit

Buying a smartphone under Rs. 7,000 keeps getting harder every year, but for good reasons. With almost all major smartphone companies dropping new phones every month, it’s never an easy task to pick the right phone. Budget smartphones may not offer all of the top-of-the-line specifications, but they get the basic things done.

But it’s true that cheaper smartphones have become better over time. If your basic needs revolve around making calls, using navigation, and using a messaging app to stay in touch with your loved ones, an affordable smartphone (under Rs. 7,000) can do all of that. There will be obvious trade-offs which include low-resolution displays, and photos that may seem a bit grainy.

If you’re buying your first smartphone or simply getting a second phone as a backup, you’ll need something that balances both the price as well as the feature set. A budget phone is perfect for most people who just need to get basic things done on a day-to-day basis. Such phones promise value for your money, but the problem is that there are so many of them.

We’ve tried several budget smartphones so that you don’t have to spend hours researching on finding the best budget smartphone out there. Each budget phone has its own pros and cons, and we’ve listed all of them below.

Here's the list of best phones under Rs. 7,000 that you can buy right now. As usual, we've restricted ourselves to phones that have been through our intensive review process to bring you the best of the bunch.

The Xiaomi Redmi Go is an extremely affordable smartphone that will automatically appeal to people on a tight budget, but it also has enough features for those who just want a simple phone without fancy bells and whistles. The processor is fairly entry-level and you won't be able to run today's popular action games, but it's enough for calls, messaging apps, and social media. Similarly, the camera just about covers the basics, but you'll be disappointed if you want to preserve your memories in the highest quality.

The RAM and storage are very limited but you can add a microSD card. The screen is relatively good for a phone priced this low. Battery life is also good, and you won't find much to fault about build quality.

The Realme C1 features a large 6.2-inch HD+ display, which produces good brightness and colours. The plastic body feels sturdy in your hand but the laminated back is prone to scratches. The phone is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 SoC, which is a decently powerful chip but the 2GB of RAM makes general usage feel a bit sluggish.
