Bonus Picks:

If you are yet unsatisfied with the list, you can have a closer view on General Mobile GM 5 Plus (available at Rs. 20,000) and Lava A3 (available at Rs. 23,500). The another phone that would be the cheapest in this list is the OnePlus X that’ll be a worth buying phone at its new pricing.

The another phone that just got out of the list but is still worth a buy is the Samsung Galaxy J7 2016 (Price: Rs. 26,490). The phone just got out of the list because its predecessor is just around the corner and the phone won’t get further updates. Plus the phone has an HD display. Other than that, considering its performance, cameras, and battery life, the J7 2016 can be said to be a good buy.
