Best mobile phones under NPR 30000 in Nepal:

6. Realme 9i

realme 9i best phones under 30000 nepal

We are starting this list with Realme 9i. It is the first phone to launch under Realme’s latest number series. That being said, it has one of the best-looking designs, especially the Prism Blue option that we reviewed. However, the phone does pick up a lot of smudges and is void of any sort of IP rating.

The rest of the secs are pretty average. It comes powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 680 chipset (6nm), which is quite common in this price range today. The 50MP primary camera is another of Realme 9i’s features that is getting popular in this particular segment. The phone skips on an ultrawide shooter, though. In addition, it gets a 5,000mAh battery with 33W fast charging.

Realme 9i Specifications:

  • Display: 6.6″ FHD+ IPS LCD, 90Hz refresh rate, 180Hz touch sampling rate
  • Chipset: Qualcomm Snapdragon 680 4G (6nm Mobile Platform)

5. Realme Narzo 50

Next up we have the Realme Narzo 50. It is the only phone on this list to come with a 120Hz refresh rate. That being said, it doesn’t have an AMOLED panel, which many phones have started to offer in this price range.

Keeping that aside, this screen also has a 180Hz touch sampling rate and 600 nits of brightness. Under the hood, it packs the MediaTek Helio G96 chipset, which should be enough for casual gaming.

Over on the back, it features a triple camera setup consisting of a 50MP primary, 2MP monochrome, and a 2MP macro camera.

If all of this sounds familiar, it’s because the Realme Narzo 50 is heavily based on last year’s Realme 8i. The reason it is on this list over the other is that it is cheaper and comes with 33W fast charging.

Realme Narzo 50 Specifications:

  • Display: 6.6-inch FHD+ IPS LCD, 120Hz, 90Hz refresh rate, 180Hz touch sampling rate
  • Chipset: MediaTek Helio G96 4G (12nm Mobile Platform)
  • Memory: 4/6GB LPDDR4X RAM (up to 5GB virtual RAM)
  • Storage: 64/128GB UFS 2.1 storage (expandable)

4. Redmi Note 11

Redmi Note 11 Global

If you want the best multimedia experience at a minimum budget, Redmi Note 11 is the way to go. It’s the cheapest phone in Nepal to come with a 90Hz AMOLED screen with an FHD+ screen. Phones in this price range usually compromise on at least one of the three criteria. Moving on, the stereo speakers on this phone are equally impressive.

Likewise, the 5,000mAh battery combined with a power-efficient 5nm chip amount to a considerable battery backup. As a result, you will hardly run into low battery when binge-watching your favorite show on Netflix. Even if you do end up in a similar scenario, the 33W box included in the box can completely fill up the phone in a little more than an hour.

The two aspects where Redmi Note 11 fails to impress are gaming and photography. Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 680 even falls behind the Snapdragon 678 when it comes to gaming. Likewise, we found the Note 11’s cameras to be unreliable at times, though they appear to be amongst the most complete setup on paper.

Redmi Note 11 Specifications:

  • Display: 6.43 FHD+ AMOLED, Corning Gorilla Glass 3, 1000 nits (peak), 90Hz refresh rate
  • Chipset: Qualcomm Snapdragon 680 (6nm Mobile Platform)

  • Rear Camera: Quad-camera; (50MP ISOCELL JN1, 8MP ultrawide, 2MP depth, 2MP macro)
  • Front Camera: 13MP, f/2.4 lens (punch-hole)
  • Security: Side-mounted fingerprint sensor
  • Connectivity: Dual-SIM (Nano), WiFi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth 5.0, GPS L1 / Glonass G1 / Beidou B1 / Galileo E1, USB Type-C, 4G LTE
  • Battery: 5000mAh with 33W charging (33W charger inside the box)
  • Price in Nepal: Rs. 27,999 (6/128GB)

3. Samsung Galaxy A22

Samsung Galaxy A22

The next entry in our list of best phones under NPR 30000 in Nepal is Samsung Galaxy A22. It was launched last year but still holds its ground today. The phone borrows a lot of inspiration from the company’s other entries in this price bracket.

It is the only one to bring OIS (Optical Image Stabilization) camera on this list. As a result, you’ll be able to shoot stable videos and decent nighttime shots from the Samsung Galaxy A22. Other highlights include a 6.4″ 90Hz Super AMOLED display and 48MP quad-cameras.

While the A22 shines in a lot of aspects, it does fall short in a few others. For instance, the phone only sports an HD resolution. To note, Galaxy A22 is the only entry in this list of best phones under NPR 30000 in Nepal to feature an inferior HD resolution.

Apart from the flaws, the Galaxy A22 has an attractive design—and it’s probably the best-looking phone on this list.

2. Realme 9

Realme 9 4G-Sunburst Gold

We can’t complete this list without mentioning the Realme 9 4G. It has the best design of all the phones on this list. It is slim and lightweight and can easily fit into your pocket. The ripple holographic design looks good too, especially in the Stargaze White variant.

 Realme 9 4G brings the same-sized Super AMOLED display as its predecessor. It also retains the 90Hz refresh rate, while also boasting a smoother 360Hz touch-sampling rate. The screen even hosts an optical in-display fingerprint scanner giving that premium feel.

On the downside, you only get a single speaker here and the Snapdragon 680 chip means it does not fare well for intensive workloads, especially gaming.
