    Features to be considered before buying phones under Rs 25000

    Build Quality

    You may have heard about phones with a metal build or plastic build. Even the glass-coated panels are available. But if you are prone to dropping your phone, do not buy the glass builds.

    Display

    The display’s size and resolution should be considered according to your usage of the devices. If you use the phone for videos streaming, viewing movies, consider at least 5.7 inches display with FullHD+, QHD or even better if you get an AMOLED display. An average user can be okay with even 5.5 inch HD or FullHD display.

    Processor

    A simple rule for considering the phone’s processor is if you are a heavy user go for the higher speed which is expressed in term of GHz. Qualcomm and Mediatek are safe while Samsung has its own Exynos, which is also good.

    Camera 

    A big myth about the camera: higher megapixels means a better camera. It is entirely a myth and do not get fooled by the higher pixels’ advertisement. Factors like aperture, ISO level, autofocus, pixel sizes and others are essential to be considered.

    Battery

    The most crucial factor to look for is battery life, keep in mind that higher mAh doesn’t mean more battery life or longer battery life cycle. These days, a 4000 mAh battery can completely satisfy you. You can also check the devices’ reviews and benchmark results before buying the phone.

    UI or OS version

    UI and OS are also vital factors in choosing your budget’s best phone. One should always pick the UI that is easy to use, as the interaction with the phone should be quick each time you have to access certain things. However, it also depends upon how fast you can adapt to the interface. The latest OS can always be better and even better if you could upgrade to the newest and latest version in the upcoming years.

    Storage

    Storage of the phone is mostly occupied by the apps present in the phone, so before you buy the phone, be sure about what types of apps and the number of apps you want to install on your devices always to have some extra spaces available. Also, it is good to have expandable memory through SD card.

    If you have to store large files and apps, go for 64GB or 128GB variants.

    Security and other features

    As we are advancing with technology, security has always been a top feature in every device. The phones these days adopt security like fingerprint sensor and even iris sensors. While the face unlocks is not a much of concern as it is less secure. Hence, it is good to have a fingerprint sensor and even better if the iris sensor is available. But with the budget of 25000, fingerprint sensors and face unlock are what most brands offer.

    Audio and Speakers
