These phones come with specs and design which just one rung below flagship level phones in the market. Recently, we have seen phones from Chinese manufacturers such as Xiaomi and OnePlus have broken the market by making top class flagship phones, which do not cost a fortune.

So, these are the Best phones under Rs 25000

 [Updated 2nd Feb 2015]



The OnePlus One was the first phone in this category, which showed how Phones, which have a sub Rs. 25000 price budget can compete with the phones of the Highest Order from HTC, Samsung and Apple.

The OnePlus One has earned rave reviews from several well-known tech reviewers and analysts alike. The OnePlus One runs Android on Cyanogen Mod 11S is one of the best ROMs available. It has an amazing developer community that keeps the phone relatively bug free. Some of the great features are that it’s Bloat-free, Customizable and Open.

Its hardware too is impeccable. It has a 2.5Ghz Quad-core processor with 3GB RAM. The Display is 5.5” and Full HD. It has a long-lasting battery and a great front and back camera.
Overall, we feel that this phone is the best you can buy under Rs. 25,000. And its Price at Rs. 21,999/- is an added bonus. However, this phone is difficult to order as OnePlus has a convoluted Invite system through only which you can procure the phone.

The Mi 4 was very recently launched in India after having been launched long since in China. The Mi 4 has very similar features to the OnePlus One in terms of Specifications.
