Quick Note

If you are looking for a smartphone that can easily handle your tasks for the next couple years then pick a phone with more RAM, better processor and higher battery capacity to keep you entertained during the day.

If you want more RAM space for just a little more investment, then OnePlus 3T is your best option. If Rs 20,000 isn’t your sweet spot and want something even cheaper than the Redmi Note 4 4GB RAM is a great option.

When buying the Redmi Note 4 better get a case along with it as there is not glass protection for it.

The Redmi Note 4 didn’t make into this list of 5 Smartphones Under Rs 20,000 because of Xiaomi’s flash sale culture and this phone is not readily available.

That’s all with the list of Top 5 Smartphones Under Rs 20,000, leave your thoughts in the comments below.
