3 Best Android Phones in India below 30k!

With over 500% YOY growth In India, smartphone owners see Android as the first choice when planning a purchase. I have been observing that consumers get confused with the number of options available in the market for Android phones. To help them come to a decision, I have compiled a list of top Android phones that costs less than Rs. 30,000.

Sony Xperia S

Sony Xperia S

Sony Xperia S has a better camera unit than the S3. It features a 12 MP camera with autofocus, LED flash and also allows 720p HD video recording. The phone is powered by a 1.5 GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM and an Adreno 220 GPU. The screen size is smaller than the Galaxy S3 – 4.3 inches with 720 x 1280 resolution providing sharp images. It comes with Android 2.3 Gingerbread but can be upgraded to the Ice Cream Sandwich. The phone comes with an internal memory of 16 GB and has a price tag of Rs. 24,500.

Samsung Galaxy SIII (S3) I9300

Samsung Galaxy SIII

Samsung has been leading the market share in India and this flagship phone has been helping the sales to reach new heights. Running on Android ICS, it is powered by a powerful 1.4 GHz Quad-Core processor, 400 MP Mali GPU and supported by 1 GB RAM. The 4.8 inches screen with a display resolution of 720 x 1280 is great though it isn’t a match to the ones with full HD screen. It also has a better battery life than most of the other Samsung phones. At a cost of Rs. 28,500 it is totally worth the money.

Micromax Canvas 2 A110

Micromax Superfone Canvas 2 A110

This dual SIM phone has a bigger screen size (5 inches) than the other two mentioned here but a poor 480 x 854 pixels resolution. It is equipped with a 1 GHz Dual-Core processor, 512 MB RAM and also has an GPU. The operating system is upgradable to Jellybean, the latest by Android. The 8 MP camera unit featuring dual-LED Flash and autofocus is comparable to that of Galaxy S3. It has an internal memory of 4 GB but it can be expanded to 32 GB with the help of a microSD card. The specifications might not look as impressive as the other two phones but at a cost of Rs. 11,500 it has become a popular choice in the market.


Samsung Galaxy S3 tops my list and is definitely the best buy if you have an approximate budget of Rs. 30,000 in mind. Customers with a budget of Rs. 20,000 have various other options than Xperia S such as the Samsung Galaxy S2 or a phone from the HTC One series. However, if your budget isn’t that high but you want a smartphone then Canvas 2 looks like a good buy. I hope that this article helps you buy the best package.
