2020 definitely shocked us in more ways than one, but when it came to phones under Rs 20,000 it was business as usual. This price range continues to be hyper-competitive. This award is for the one smartphone that manages to stretch its neck ahead of the competition.
Weirdly - for a generally lacklustre price category - even the Rs 20-30k segment saw some intense action this year. There were quite a few impressive phones but only one can be the last phone standing.
While this category didn’t even exist a few years ago, it now attracts all the major phonemakers. It’d be interesting to see whether the latest entrants can challenge the incumbents.
Who said only flagship phones should have all the “camera fun?” Mid-Range phones offer impressive shooting capabilities these days, and some devices in the sub-Rs 30k bracket can stand against flaghips too. But which one is the best?
Come hell or high water, we are certain the entire humankind is not going to stop taking selfies. Now that we’ve made peace with that reality, time’s come to crown the best selfie phone of 2020.
Smartphone camera innovation is possibly one area where the efforts have been relentless. This year we saw phone cameras get gimbal tech, innovative RAW mode, and pack in even more megapixels. But, which one took the absolute best pictures? We shall find out.
Gaming is picking up steam once again, since we are all holed up in our homes. And, with games such as Among Us, Genshin Impact, COD: Mobile, and more enthralling gamers every day, gaming performance is vital for phones. Here, we’ll choose the phone with the most firepower to tackle these games.
