Best Smartphones Under 15000 Rupees / Approx 200$
1.) Realme 7
The first one is newly launched Realme 7 smartphone. It ticks most of the needed feature boxes easily. The Helio G95 chipset is little more powerful than Helio G90 which was in previous variant of Realme 6i. If you have budget of 15000 INR or 200$ you can opt for this smartphone. It has 90hz refresh rate display but obviously its the LCD display.
This one has a newer design and looks. Added Helio G95 and the front display makes it better than the previous versions. Also, the new Sony IMX 682 camera is really good. You can buy this smartphone on Flipkart. Though there are sales so you might experience some difficulties in getting one.

2.) Poco M2 Pro
Poco came back after year of break and they launched rebranded smartphones. Poco M2 Pro comes with the Snapdragon 720G which is good chipset at this price point. Also it features 48 megapixels quad camera setup on the back. It has 60hz refresh rate display which FHD+ IPS LCD display.
If you don’t want the Color OS and want to opt for MIUI then you can get this one. Though it might have the UI ads that everyone is frustrated about.

3.) Realme 6i
The third one is the best smartphones under 15000 Rupees is the Realme 6i. This is the previous version of the Realme 7 smartphone. Priced at 14000 rupees in India is still a great option to consider. It has a powerful MediaTek Helio G90T chipset which is a 12nm chipset but still its powerful enough for daily tasks and some gaming.
You can get the FHD+ IPS LCD display with 90hz refresh rate display. The 14K variant has 6GB of RAM and 64GB of storage, 48 megapixels quad camera setup. Also, the battery is 4300mAh with 30W warp fast charge support. If you love custom ROMs avoid Realme smartphones.
You can get this one from Flipkart for India. Sadly, for international users, the device only has a 720P display and I don’t recommend it for you. Better go with Redmi Note 9 Pro or Poco X3 NFC.
- Good Processor
- FHD+ display with 90hz refresh rate
- Good battery with fast charge
- Low light cameras are not good
4.) Redmi Note 9 Pro
This is the fourth option for the best smartphones under 15000 rupees. This one comes with a Snapdragon 720G chipset which is good enough for daily tasks and gaming. It has almost identical specifications like the Poco M2 Pro.
This one is a good value for money smartphone. But if you ask me between Poco M2 Pro and Redmi Note 9 Pro then get the Poco M2 Pro. Redmi Note 9 Pro gets down with the Camera quality. Also, no one can forget the ads in budget Redmi devices.
It is available on Amazon, You can buy it now. International users can buy Redmi Note 9 Pro as listed in the Poco m2 Pro list.
- Good Processor
- Full HD good display
- Good battery life
- low light camera
5.) Samsung Galaxy M21
Finally a Non-Chinese Smartphone right? Samsung has lot of reputation in the Smartphone market mainly for its quality and aftersales service.But Samsung still provides the outdated Exynos 9611 Chipset, they fitted this chipset in almost every mid-range M series smartphone.
Apart from the processor the phone is solid. The main selling point for Samsung is their displays, it has Super AMOLED display and massive 6000mAh battery capacity. It comes with Android 10 and its popular One UI. It has triple rear cameras but they might struggle a bit.
if you are looking for a Brand and non-Chinese smartphone then this one is the best bet. You can buy it from Amazon India or AliExpress International. You can also look out for your local shops and E-Commerce. This one is priced at 14K Rupees and approx 220$ internationally.

- Great battery life
- Samsung Brand and aftersales service
- Processor is low powered
- Average camera performance
6.) Moto G9
Moto is coming back after long days receiving very low sales due to price to specs ratio. The Moto G9 comes with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 662 Processor. if you love the stock Android feel then this one is for you. No lots of bloatware, the good stock Android user interface is all you get with this one.
The design seems a little bit off and bulky. Other than that its a good phone. It has a triple camera setup on its back. But it seems the cameras struggle during low light photography, on the day it does its job pretty good. One thing is there it has only an HD+ display not an FHD display if you are concerned. The G9 is priced at 11499 Rupees.
- Stock Android
- No Bloatware
- Good Battery
- Feels bulky
- Low Powered processor
- Low light camera struggles
7.) Redmi Note 9
If you are tight on budget you can get this one it is priced at 11999 Rupees. It has a Full HD display which is really great at this price. You can call this one as value for money smartphone. I was confused between Moto G9 and Redmi Note 9 positions but in my personal opinion, I like the UI of Motorola.
Redmi Note 9 comes with the MediaTek helio G85 octa core processor. It is good enough to carry out some daily tasks and light gaming. Another good thing is the battery it has 5020mAh battery with 22.5W fast charge support.
You can buy it on Amazon but mostly it goes out of stock. You can also buy from international sites if you from outside India.
