Shake off those January blues! The sub-Rs 35,000 smartphone scene in India is hotter than ever, offering powerful processors, impressive cameras and long-lasting batteries without breaking the bank. Sure, they may not have all the bells and whistles of more expensive flagships, but these smartphones offer incredible value. Dive into our top picks for this month – you won’t regret it! These are the best phones you can buy in India this February. The list highlights the iQOO Neo 7 Pro 5G and three other powerhouses, all within your budget.
iQOO Neo 7 Pro 5G
Topping our list this month is the iQOO Neo 7 Pro 5G, packing a big punch with the most affordable Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chip out there. This muscle machine features a stunning flat AMOLED display with a buttery 120Hz refresh rate for immersive games and movies. Its massive 5000mAh battery ensures you’ll never be caught empty-handed, while the reliable 50MP main rear camera takes Instagram-worthy snaps. Think premium phone experience without the hefty price tag – that’s the iQOO Neo 7 Pro in a nutshell.
Redmi Note 13 Pro+ 5G
The next phone on the list is the Redmi Note 13 Pro+ 5G. This phone is a significant upgrade over its predecessor, featuring a premium metal and glass build, a gorgeous 120Hz curved AMOLED display, and a 200MP camera that excels in low-light conditions. The 5000 mAh battery offers respectable endurance, even for power users, with 120W fast charging for quick recharges. While the lack of Android 14 out of the box hurts, an update to the company’s new HyperOS is on the horizon. Overall, the Redmi Note 13 Pro+ redeems itself with a complete and impressive package, surpassing the Note 12 Pro+ in almost every way.
Poco F5 5G
The Poco F5 5G is our third recommendation on this list, ready to impress. With a stunning 12-bit 120Hz AMOLED display like the Note 13 Pro+, it delivers smooth images and vibrant colors. The real muscle is inside, i.e. the Snapdragon 7+ Gen 2 processor, which can easily tackle any task, be it gaming or multitasking, like a Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 in disguise. A long-lasting 5000 mAh battery with 67W fast charging keeps you powered, while the sharp camera with OIS captures steady, impressive moments. The sleek design and rugged build further solidify the Poco F5’s appeal: performance and looks in one package.
OnePlus Nord 3 5G
Closing our list is the OnePlus Nord 3 5G, a beauty with intelligence and strength. Its flat 120Hz AMOLED display brings movies and games to life with vibrant colors and fluid images. Do you need to silence your phone quickly? The handy alert slider is your ninja solution. Powered by the latest OxygenOS, the Nord 3’s software is intuitive, feature-packed, and fun to use. Are you struggling with low battery anxiety? Say goodbye with 80W fast charging that charges the 5000 mAh battery in an instant. Plus, with up to 16GB of RAM, multitasking becomes a breeze – numerous apps and games run smoothly. Elegant, powerful and affordable, the OnePlus Nord 3 is your perfect combination.
