There are tons of pointless articles available on google claiming themselves as best buying guides ever, but for me, they all sound mare nonsense. All those guides cover ten, sometimes even more smartphones, which makes me wonder if there's any smartphone left out there, who's not on the list? Do you think the same as I do? Then you're at the right place as today I am going to cover the only best smartphone under 15000 rs in India that you need to consider and buy right now, nothing more nothing less. Let's jump straight into it.

The best ultimate smartphone under 15000 | 250 Euro

Before giving you the name of the ultimate smartphone that I have selected for you, I would like to ask you something. What is the meaning of the best smartphone? Well, a standard answer will be - it should be phenomenal, outstanding, the best value for money, and to be frank, am pretty sure you are looking for some flagship smartphone under 15000, even though deep down, you know it isn't possible, right? So, what am going to do today is turn all those virtualities into reality, starting the next paragraph, with the name of our ultimate best budget android phone under 15000

Realme 6 the ultimate smartphone

Either if you're looking for the best budget android phone under 15000 (250 Euro), best gaming smartphone under 15,000 {250 Euro), or you're looking for the best camera phone under 15000 (250 Euro), the only smartphone you need to buy is Realme 6. I have got reasons, Realme 6 has got the most powerful chipset of the segment - Mediatek Helio G90T ( Check out this Mediatek Helio G90T versus Snapdragon 720G versus Snapdragon 730G - quick comparison by clicking here ), a stunning display, a massive battery, a super-fast charger, and a more than capable quad-camera setup

There is a ton to talk about Realme 6, but let's have a look at them one at a time.

Stunning Full HD+ 90Hz Refresh Rate Display

The biggest highlight of Realme 6 is its gorgeous display. Realme 6 comes with a beautiful 6.5 inches 1080p LCD panel that comes with a punch hole, located at the top left corner of the screen, housing a 16MP selfie shooter. But the main highlight of the screen is its refresh rate, Realme 6 comes with a 90Hz refresh rate display, which makes it the smoothest display to operate under 15000. A 90Hz refresh rate at sub 15k is already unbelievable.

For those who don't know yet, 90Hz display panels are way ahead of old school 60Hz panels as far the usability and fluidity are concerned. Use it once, and you will never even think of switchback. So, if you are looking for the best display smartphone under 15000 (250 Euro), look no further.

Powerful Processor and a Class-leading GPU performance

Realme 6 has the most powerful processor sub 25000 range. Realme 6 comes powered via Mediatek Helio G90T Soc clocking under the hood paired with a 4GB/6GB/8GB of RAM and 64GB/128GB of internal storage.

  • Left - Snapdragon 720G (Redmi Note 9 Pro) |  Right - Helio G90T (Realme 6)

We had already conducted a test, a comparison among Mediatek Helio G90T, Qualcomm Snapdragon 720G, and Snapdragon 730G ( three best chipsets powering most of the smartphones under 30k ) and the results were surprising. Mediatek Helio G90T emerged as a clear winner among them all, followed by Snapdragon 720G and Snapdragon 730G. You can have a look at this comparison here

If you're a gadget freak, do check out the above-linked article to grasp a good knowledge about the best chipset to own under 25000 based on CPU GPU and stress test. You'll love it.

Best Gaming Smartphone under 15000 and 20000

In our gaming test, we found that the Mediatek Helio G90T Chipset can play PUBG mobile on the smoothest graphics settings, which means that an Helio G90T powered smartphones can run PUBG at 60fps frame rate, which is a big thing considering the price. Meanwhile, Qualcomm's Snapdragon 720G failed to run PUBG mobile at the 60fps frame rate. The frame rate of PUBG capped at 40fps, it's surprising. So is a Mediatek Helio G90T better than a Snapdragon 720G? 

When we passed both of these chipsets through AnTuTu and GeekBench, we found that Helio G90T scored an overall score of 285303, which is 3000 points higher than Qualcomm's Snapdragon 720G score 282127, which isn't a lot, but again a winner is a winner. So, if you're looking for an ultimate gaming smartphone under 15000, Realme 6 shall be your only choice.

Capable Quad Camera Setup

Realme 6 has quad-camera setup at its back escalating - a 64 MP wide f/1.8 primary camera, an 8 MP f/2.3 ultrawide lens, a 2 MP f/2.4 macro lens, and another 2 MP Black and White, f/2.4 depth sensor. In our test, Realme captured far more details than Redmi Note 9 Pro in daylight, making it the best camera smartphone under 15000 rs in India.

In low light conditions, The images weren't as detailed as in daylight, but Realme 6 still manages to shoot pictures far better than its competitors. The only downside I can see in this setup is the sub-par Video recording in low light conditions. The videos recorded turned out to be flat with no eye-popping details. The contrast wasn't up to the mark too, but in daylight and enough lighting conditions, the setup performed well. The videos weren't astonishing, but then again, there isn't much room to be a complaint at this price point. Overall, Realme 6 is undoubtedly the best camera smartphone in India under 15000

4300mAh Battery with Super Fast 30W Charging

Realme 6 comes with a respectable 4300mAh battery, drawing its power through a 30W fast charger. In our test, The bundled 30W charger charged Realme 6 from 0% to 100% in mare 58 mins. 0% to 50% took about 20 minutes, making it one of the fastest charging tech available under 15000 in India. For authentication, Realme 6 comes with a classical speedy fingerprint sensor located on the right side of the frame. In our test, it tuned out to be blazing fast, but if you're a left-hand user, it might tune out to be a useless setup.

Raw Thoughts and Price

Realme 6 is undeniably the latest best smartphone in India under 15000, it has got a capable camera, stunning 90Hz display to interact, and a super-fast charging tech. Whether you are looking for a gaming smartphone or an all-rounder, I can't see any smartphone hovering even close to what Realme 6 is offering at its price point. The compact shell beautiful shades on the back, build quality everything is up to the mark.

The price of Realme 6 starts at INR 14,999 (229 Euro in Europe) for its base variant that comes with a 4GB of RAM and 64 GB of internal storage, the mid variant with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage costs INR 16,999, while the top of the line variant that comes with an 8GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage costs INR 17,999.

 I believe I have given you ample reasons to buy a Realme 6 at this point in time. So, what are you waiting for ? Go and grab it.
