    Features you should consider before buying mobile phones under Rs. 20,000

    The devices falling under 20,000 are a lower mid-range phone and should offer a decent set of features at a reasonable price. It is essential to choose the device that best feeds your need as many phones in this segment focus on one or two features, and you might have to compromise some other features. However, some devices provide good value for money. 

    For someone looking at phones at this price-segment should consider the following features.

    Display

    You should consider the type and resolution of the display. In this price segment, most devices offer an HD+ or Full HD+ LCD panel. A phone with an FHD+ screen would be an ideal option.

    Processor and OS

    A simple thumb rule is to look for a processor with a higher number of cores and higher clock speed if you are a heavy user. Choose devices with OS based on the latest Android version and with less bloatware. It is advisable to select phones that receive security updates regularly in the future.

    Camera

    There is a lot of hype for cameras, with many brands trying to outdo each other by throwing many cameras and more megapixels in a device. However, all these are tricks to lure customers. Also, more megapixel cameras do not mean better images. Consider factors like autofocus, image processing, aperture, ISO levels, and better optimization.

    Memory

    The RAM configuration on the device also affects the performance of the device. The phones with higher RAM and better optimization will be faster, and with more increased ROM will have more storage. If you are a multi-tasker, go for a higher RAM option. At this price segment, most devices offer 4GB of RAM and expandable storage.

    Battery

    Most devices offer more than 4000 mAh battery capacity in this segment. However, it is advisable to look for phones with better battery optimization and higher battery life, as higher mAh does not always mean higher battery life.

    Security

    Most devices in this price segment provide a physical fingerprint sensor, which is either rear-mounted or side-mounted. Face Unlock is also a standard security option.
