In the price range of 15-30k I found nothing interesting..
Because most phones are with snapdragon 720 or 730g

So i found this 2019 model K20 pro, but it looks so sexy in black color, and I can buy it for 23k now with 128gb storage..

I Like it because of full Display, no punchhole, no notch, anything!
It’s hard to find a beautiful as well powerful phone in this price range!!

for 29k I can get it with 256gb storage..

Please help me, should I get it or there is better phone in this price range with better processor?
+ I am not interested in 5G phones, I will be using wifi most of the time

thank u in advance smile

Don’t think they will come up with SD 732G (They can do that for note 10 series). I am waiting for some real 5g competition in this 15k price bracket sweat_smile

Trust me! they have got nothing better than SD 732G and for 5g phones… Yes MT Dimensity are 5g processors… Even Qualcomm is ready with entry level 5G chip(10-14k) coming soon on Motorola phones

I was quite against 5G phones in recent months as I presumed 5G wouldn’t be a reality for next 1.5 years or so but looking at recent demo by Airtel we can expect 5G band auction and deployment by end of 2021.

So wait and invest into a decent 5G phone even if the processor might not compete against the one in k20 pro.

What about MI 10T with exchange offers & ICICI Card offers. K20 pro is sd855 whereas MI10T is SD865.
I also suggest all dimers to use SD8** series. Its better to buy this series mobile in 20k – 30k range. You wont be loooking for changing mobile next 2 years. Complete peace of mind just by investing 10k extra.
2 year old sd845 (poco f1) is still better than mid rangers of now. You can check benchmarks. I am also using it with peace of mind for 1.5 years and will only go to sd865 or higher in range 30k in next Diwali sale.

I have k20pro exactly the one u described. Black with 128gb n 6gb. Had bought it for 22k more than 15months ago. Phone is really really good but since then phones have become expensive. But if i were to buy a phone today i would really consider a question, do i need such a powerful processor. I can play cod mobile without any hiccups but i have noticed the same on realme 7 too. Screen is amoled and its delightful but if i see lcd of realme 7 independently, its good enough and same is the case with cameras. So if a phone under 14k can give almost same experience as 23k phone then only criteria remains to choose is performance especially considering our use. If u use it alot and do alot of multitasking then k20pro will be a apt choice for u. Else u may consider cheaper phones or phones with 5g to make it future proof.

Day to day operations are slower in Mid rangers . SD 855 / 865 is flagship chipset and having it means , this phone can compete with any costly mobile and even 2 years old sd845 is faster than present time mid rangers.

I agree. but i was talking about max one second of difference in opening apps. It will definately differ while doing something that’s actually processor intensive. So it makes sense for the 2nd scenario

Of course 1 second delay does not matter much. But its just my experience , when I purchased mid rangers like Samsung galaxy S duos, redmi note 3 pro, mi max 2 , then I was always bothered about their slow speed and which apps , games they can run, which game they can not run. How is camera. Friends new mobile is faster etc etc.
I was always checking new mobile for new processors and features.
But trust me, Poco f1(sd845) costed me 18k. But I HAVE COMPLETE PEACE OF MIND AFTER PURCHASING THIS MOBILE. I no longer look at specifications of Realme 5, 6 7, pro, narzo, redmi 5 ,6 , 7 ,8 9 po etc etc.
I will replace it after using 2 years with SD865 or higher only.
This series is most developer friendly also like rooting and custom roms.

Its from Qualcomm… They know better than Mediatek…
and all 5g bands?
We dont even know which 5G bands will work in India… So it’ll be like other 5G phones released in sub 25k segment

If you can wait for new Xioami launch phones which is expected to launch in first or 2nd week of March. K20pro is also a good phone if you are in a hurry.

Since you are looking upto 30k, just get any variant of Mi 10T/Pro.

I was using K20 Pro black for 1 year, now changed to Mi 10T 8GB since last month. It is better in almost every sense. More future proof, even the wide 5G bands support. Looks, hardware specs (RAM, UFS, processor), camera, screen refresh, battery life, fast charging, speakers, IR port, everything is better. Get the Lunar silver one. Dont worry about LCD screen, it is very good.

So, not a real 5g phone in the true sense. I think one should remain away from the 5g thing as of now, save some bucks and invest in a 4g phone. If Ambani decides to change the game next year by going the pure 5g way then it’s a different thing.

sadly yes, because no device of 2021 could justify a phone with :

1. full display with no holes or notch
2. flagship type processor from snapdragon
3. strong build quality
4. decent battery
5. fast charging (18w is fine)
6. Popular and price Range with all these features!! laughing
