Best mobile phones under NPR 30000 in Nepal:

5. Redmi Note 10S

Redmi Note 10S - Pebble White

Kicking off our list of best phones under NPR 30000 in Nepal is the Xiaomi Redmi Note 10S. If you’re looking for one of the best-performing phones in this price range, this is one of them. Powered by the Helio G95 chipset, it will give you an excellent gaming performance for a midrange phone.

To note, Redmi Note 10S is Xiaomi’s answer to Realme 8—that arrives later in the list. Here, the Helio G95 has been paired with 6/8GB of LPDDR4X RAM and up to 128GB of UFS 2.2 storage. Apart from the excellent performance, the Redmi Note 10S has an impressive screen too.

An AMOLED display

It features a 6.43″ AMOLED panel, but with a standard 60Hz refresh rate. On top of this, the phone brings a quad-camera setup. This consists of a 64MP primary, an 8MP ultrawide, a 2MP depth, and a 2MP macro. However, we found the photo/video quality from its cameras not that impressive.

Anyway, it’s got a fairly impressive battery endurance thanks to the 5000mAh battery that supports 33W fast charging. But what’s disappointing is that Xiaomi Nepal recently hiked the price of the Redmi Note 10S by Rs. 1,000 in each variant.

Redmi Note 10S Specifications:

  • Display: 6.43-inches 60Hz FHD+ Super AMOLED panel
  • Chipset: MediaTek Helio G95 (12nm Mobile Platform)
  • Memory: 6/8GB RAM, 64/128GB internal storage (expandable)
  • Software & UI: Android 11 with Xiaomi’s MIUI 12.5 on top
  • Rear Camera: Quad (64MP main, 8MP ultrawide, 2MP macro, 2MP depth)
  • Front Camera: 13MP sensor (punch-hole)
  • Fingerprint sensor: Physical (side-mounted)
  • Connectivity: Dual-SIM (Nano), WiFi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth 5.0, AGPS / GPS / GLONASS / Beidou, USB Type-C, 3.5mm headphone jack
  • Sensors: Ambient Light, Proximity, E-compass, Accelerometer, Gyro, IR Blaster
  • Battery: 5000mAh battery with 33W Charging
  • Price in Nepal: Rs. 25,999 (6/64GB) | Rs. 27,999 (6/128GB)

4. Samsung Galaxy M32

Samsung Galaxy M32 Black

Likewise, taking the fourth spot in our list of best phones under NPR 30000 in Nepal goes to Samsung’s latest midrange phone, the Galaxy M32. While it most certainly isn’t a winner on all fronts, because it delivers balanced overall performance, we believe it deserves the spot.

First and foremost, MediaTek’s Helio G80 powering the M32 definitely doesn’t hold up against the likes of Snapdragon 732G or Helio G95. Plus, it features a notched display which is pretty dated for a midrange phone in 2021.

Comparatively underpowerful chipset

However, Helio G80 is a fairly powerful processor and should suffice for regular usage to most people. You can choose between 4/6GB RAM or 64/128GB of internal storage. Additionally, Galaxy M32 has a fairly impressive camera performance. Equipping a 64MP primary sensor, its quad-camera arrangement can shoot pretty good photos and videos.

Like in previous “M” series phones from Samsung, the M32 has a big 6000mAh battery as well. Therefore, you can expect it to last for at least a couple of days under normal usage. Other highlights of the phone include a 6.4″ 90Hz FHD Super AMOLED display, 25W fast charging support, side-mounted fingerprint reader, etc.

Samsung Galaxy M32 Specifications:

  • Display: 6.4-inches 90Hz FHD+ Super AMOLED panel
  • Chipset: MediaTek Helio G80 (12nm Mobile Platform)
  • Memory: 4/6GB RAM, 64/128GB internal storage (expandable)
  • Software & UI: Android 11 with Samsung’s One UI Core 3.1 on top
  • Rear Camera: Quad (64MP main, 8MP ultrawide, 2MP macro, 2MP depth)
  • Front Camera: 20MP sensor (notch)
  • Fingerprint sensor: Physical (side-mounted)
  • Connectivity: Dual-SIM (Nano), WiFi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth 5.0, AGPS / GPS / GLONASS / Galileo / Beidou, USB Type-C, 3.5mm headphone jack
  • Sensors: Accelerometer, Gyroscope, Geomagnetic, Virtual Light, Virtual Proximity
  • Battery: 6000mAh battery with 25W Charging
  • Price in Nepal: Rs. 24,999 (4/64GB) | Rs. 27,999 (6/128GB)

3. Realme 8

Realme 8 - Cyber Silver

Now, taking the bronze medal in our pick of best phones under NPR 30000 in Nepal is the Realme 8. Originally, the phone was only available in the high-end 8/128GB memory configuration—at a pretty outrageous price. But under the new management, Realme 8 sees competitive pricing.

The phone has a pretty decent design language, although it is pretty contrasting. Some people may prefer the giant “Dare To Leap” branding at the back while some won’t. Regardless, Realme 8 has a pretty handy design and weighs only 177 grams—and is therefore among the most lightweight phones on this list.

Helio G95 

Like the Redmi Note 10S above, this phone is powered by MediaTek’s Helio G95 chipset. This has been paired with up to 8GB RAM and 128GB of UFS 2.1 storage. Realme UI 2.0 is pretty neat as well. However, Realme 8 does ship with a bunch of bloatware apps pre-installed although you can uninstall most of them.

Its 64MP quad-camera array shoots decent photos too, while we wished the color processing could’ve been better. Fueling the Realme 8 is a big 5000mAh battery that supports 30W fast charging. For a relatively premium experience, its Super AMOLED display houses an in-display fingerprint sensor.

Realme 8 Specifications:

  • Display: 6.4-inches 60Hz FHD+ Super AMOLED panel
  • Chipset: MediaTek Helio G95 (12nm Mobile Platform)
  • Memory: 4/6/8GB RAM, 128GB internal storage (expandable)
  • Software & UI: Android 11 with Realme UI 2.0 on top
  • Rear Camera: Quad (64MP main, 8MP ultrawide, 2MP macro, 2MP B&W)

  • Fingerprint sensor: Optical (in-display)
  • Connectivity: Dual-SIM (Nano), WiFi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac (Dual-band), Bluetooth 5.1, GPS / AGPS / Glonass / Galileo / Beidou, USB Type-C, 4G LTE

2. Samsung Galaxy A22

Samsung Galaxy A22

The next entry in our list of best phones under NPR 30000 in Nepal is yet another entry from Samsung. Galaxy A22 is the latest midrange phone from the company that borrows a lot of inspiration from the company’s other entries in this price bracket.

While the A22 shares a lot of similarities with the Galaxy M32, this one does compromise on a couple of aspects. 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.

Pretty attractive design

Another compromise this phone brings over the M32 is a smaller 5000mAh battery. Besides this, these two phones are quite similar to one another. Apart from the flaws, the Galaxy A22 has an attractive design—and it’s probably the best-looking phone on this list.

Also, it is the only one to bring OIS in the 30K price bracket. 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, 48MP quad-cameras, and more.

Samsung Galaxy A22 Specifications:

  • Display: 6.4-inches 90Hz HD+ Super AMOLED panel
  • Chipset: MediaTek Helio G80 (12nm Mobile Platform)

While the global version brings a 108MP primary camera, the Indian unit of Redmi Note 10 Pro features a 64MP primary camera instead. Anyway, Xiaomi introduced a lot of upgrades to this year’s Redmi Note series devices. First of all, the display has finally been upped to an AMOLED panel.

120Hz refresh rate

On top of this, Note 10 Pro also boasts a 120Hz refresh rate for a smooth scrolling experience. Both the front and the back of the phone are protected by Corning’s Gorilla Glass 5—whereas it is also IP53 dust and splash resistant. Besides this, Redmi Note 10 Pro brings a quad-camera setup at the back, led by a 108MP Samsung HM2 sensor.

Accompanying it is an 8MP ultrawide, a 5MP telemacro, and a 2MP depth camera. Similarly, the phone has a decent 5020mAh battery that should last at least a day under normal usage. It supports 33W fast charging and Xiaomi has been generous enough to include a compatible adapter inside the box itself.
