Buying guide: The best sub-₹30,000 smartphones

These days, you don't have to spend a fortune to get a top quality mobile

We used to break out in a cold sweat on hearing the words "mid-range phone", and if someone mentioned a "budget handset" we'd be out of the door in seconds. But not any more. 

These days, you can get an absolutely amazing smartphone for not very much cash at all - less than ₹10,000, in fact. And while there aren't many sub-₹10,000 phones we'd whole-heartedly recommend, you can get some proper crackers in the ₹15,000-₹20,000 range. 

Below, you'll find a list of seven smartphones available for less than ₹30,000. Every one of them is recommended personally by the Stuff team, having been thoroughly tested to our usual standards. Happy shopping!
