In addition to the design and specifications, smartphone makers are also frequently holding sales while slashing prices of their offerings to try and attract potential buyers. This has made matters difficult for most of us as we try and hunt for the smartphone that offers the best for as much less as possible. However, considering that we have tested almost all the devices that are part of this segment, we thought we would make a list of best devices highlighting their unique aspects in a list of best smartphones in the sub-Rs 20,000 segment.

Poco F1

Poco F1 has largely become the defacto choice for people who know something about smartphone specifications while buying. The reason we say so as Poco F1 was the first device in the market to sport a flagship-grade processor, the Snapdragon 845 in this case, in a smartphone that is anywhere near the Rs 20,000 marker.

The company recently decided to permanently reduce the price so that the base model with 6GB RAM and 64GB internal storage is available for Rs 19,999. If you want a beast of a smartphone in terms of specs and performance then go ahead with this.
