    Features to be considered before buying phones under Rs 30000

    The devices falling in the category of under 30,000 should have a decent set of features. Many devices in this segment put a focus on one or two features while compromising on other features. However, some devices provide good value for money. It is essential to choose the device that best feeds your need rather than falling for some gimmick or tricks.

    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. Most devices in this price segment offer a Full HD+ LCD panel, with Samsung devices providing Super AMOLED panels.

    Processor and OS

    The performance of the device is dependent on the chipset used in the device. It is a good idea to go for the device 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 devices that receive security updates regularly in the future.

    Camera

    As the competition is intense in this price range, the companies are throwing a higher number of cameras and higher MP lenses in the devices to attract customers. However, many of them are just gimmick to lure customers.

    Do not just run behind higher MP cameras and consider factors like autofocus, image processing, aperture, ISO levels, and better optimization.

    Storage

    The RAM configuration on the device also affects the performance of the device. Companies are realizing the need for higher RAM in themed-range devices, and so most of the devices in this price range comes with 4GB or 6 GB of RAM. If you have an option to choose, always choose a device with higher RAM and better optimization.

    The OS of the device itself occupies a huge chunk of the device’s internal memory, so it is advisable to go for a higher memory option. It is also good to have microSD card support for extending the storage.

    Battery

    Companies are increasing the battery capacity of the devices, with most devices providing more than 4000 mAh battery capacity. However, it is advisable to look for devices 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 common biometric option.
