If you are interested in buying an iPhone, then you can opt for the iPhone 7 in the sub 25k price range but note that it is a really dated mobile. 

Apple iPhone 7 – Price Rs. 23,999

The Apple iPhone 7 is now a couple of years old, but it is still a good option if you want an iPhone in the 20k-25k price range.

The iPhone 7 is really lightweight (138 grams) and compact in size. You will get the latest Apple software and OS on this device, and the performance is also fast. The noticeable con is average battery life and a large bezel display.

    1. If you are willing to spend this much go for Oneplus 3 , or around 20K can buy the Oppo F1s, Samsung On Nxt (recently launched) or can also check the Zuk Z2 Plus. HTC are good but again not value for money.

  8. Xiaomi redmi note 3, Lenovo K4 note, Moto X Play which is best?
    Or in Rs 15000 approx which phone is better?
    Mainly focus on camera quality.

  12. want to know why it is like that some company afford to give a certain configuration at a very low cost then any other company like Samsung and apple. Is it the company providing at low cast are some way inferior in quality?
    as an example Mi5, one plus 2, Micromax, lava are available at way less then any model of Samsung, LG or HTC with same configuration. Confused between Mi5 & one plus 2 & any model comparative model of Samsung.
    Thanks in advance.

    1. First thanks for a very good question, Now to answer your question let me just take example of Mi5 and the Samsung S7. S7 costs twice as the Mi5, Some of the things are far better in the Samsung S7 like Quad HD display panel it is unmatched , the camera quality is unmatched , it looks gorgeous and finish on it is best in business + Brand Name + Service and support in smaller towns allows Samsung sell it at a higher price. Mi5 and Oneplus 2 are great phones and very good value for money. But there are people who just want the best money is not a concern for them, a little additional benefit is okay at the cost of paying double. One Plus 3 is also around the corner and can be bought. Also check the UI for Xiaomi and Oneplus 2 and see which looks better to you both are good phones. Mi5 looks better from value for money point.
