5 Best Phones Under Rs.25,000 (November 2015)

Every month hundreds of readers of this blog comment and ask me which phone they should choose among the crowded market. Which has made me even better understand the requirements and view-point of the buyers. So I am trying to make this list even easier for you by giving you appropriate information. You are always welcome to ask your queries.

So, let’s take a look at the Best Phone Under 25000 Rs:

[alert title=”Read First:” icon=”info-circle”]We believe that specifications of the phones just tell the half story, a great user experience matters more than great specifications. So, while preparing this list we have considered everything, the specifications, hardware, software (UI), real-world performance, user experience, brand value, after sales service and more. We see a phone as a complete package which should at the end deliver great satisfaction to the user and our rankings are based on the same principles. We consider every phone from biggest to the smallest brands and give our honest opinions.[/alert]

1. OnePlus 2:

With the OnePlus 2, we have something bold to say. We believe that great products come from great ideas, not multi-million dollar marketing campaigns. We believe “that’s just the way things are” is almost always the wrong answer.

Built on a powerful 64-bit architecture, the ultra-premium Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor takes mobile computing to new heights. Paired with the Adreno 430 GPU, intensive 3D games and other demanding apps have never looked more stunning.

Strong and exceptionally lightweight, the OnePlus 2’s outer frame is crafted from a resilient alloy of aluminum and magnesium. Our exclusive design ensures ideal antenna reception and temperature regulation, increasing performance. Stainless steel accents, Gorilla Glass, and an array of unique back covers mean you are always touching the most premium materials.

The OnePlus 2’s 1080p display has a pixel density of 401 PPI. That’s the sweet spot: impeccable clarity that doesn’t harm performance or battery life. The OnePlus 2’s spacious 5.5” display sports an impressive 1500:1 contrast ratio, so blacks are deeper and colors are more stunning than ever. Packing a whopping 3,300 mAh capacity, the OnePlus 2’s lithium-polymer battery will carry you through the day and beyond. With a sizable 64GB of storage, you’ll never run out of space for apps, videos, and files. And thanks to a 4GB of LPDDR4 RAM, your OnePlus 2 will continue running smoothly, even when doing some serious multitasking.

The OnePlus 2’s charging and data port utilizes the new USB Type-C standard. With a flat, rollable design, our exclusive, patented cable can be plugged in at either orientation. At both ends. It’s also compact and won’t get tangled. If only everything were this easy.

OxygenOS remains true to the goal of delivering a pure Android experience with powerful enhancements. Features you’ve come to expect from OnePlus like off-screen gestures and customizable buttons are built right in, but you won’t find any unnecessary gimmicks

The smartphone is our most personal device, and we check it for updates hundreds of times every day. The few seconds it takes to input a password add up to hours of wasted time each week. Save time and store up to five unique fingerprints to unlock your device with a simple press, in less than half a second. It’s fast, it’s simple, and it’s safe.

The OnePlus 2’s laser autofocus system locks in a touch-free and precise focus in under 0.2 seconds. When you prepare to take a picture, lasers automatically scan the scene, finding the ideal focus point. Never miss that perfect shot or let blurriness ruin a perfect moment. Our sensor contains large 1.3µm light-collecting pixels—the biggest ever in a 13MP smartphone camera—for unmatched low-light performance.
