Backing the big display is a big 6000mAh battery as well. Unfortunately, it fuels up via a micro USB connection and supports 10W charging only. Therefore, charging the phone from 0 to 100% takes over 3 hours here. On top of this, Nokia C30 weighs a whopping 237 grams—which is only slightly lighter than the iPhone 13 Pro Max.

Unisoc chip

Handling the performance side of things is the same Unisoc SC9863A chipset as in the Realme C11 2021. However, the C30 is available in a single 2GB RAM, 32GB storage variant only. While it originally retailed at Rs. 14,199, Nokia Nepal recently discounted the phone—thereby making it a better value than the C11 2021.

Nokia C30’s stock Android 11 Go experience is another thing to cherish about this budget phone. As for cameras, it brings a 13MP primary and a 2MP depth sensor at the back, whereas the 5MP selfie camera sits inside the teardrop notch.

Realme C11 2021 - Blue best phones under 15000 in nepal

Mobile gaming has gotten so popular these days that people have begun expecting decent gameplay in phones at almost every price range. But while 2020’s Realme C11 followed this route with Helio G35 SoC, its successor brings a Unisoc chip instead.

More specifically, the Realme C11 2021 has Unisoc SC9863A SoC with either 2 or 4GB of LPDDR4x RAM. Then there’s 32/64GB of internal storage, which can be expanded using a micro SD card. By the way, the SIM tray hosts a dedicated space for the SD card.

How’s the performance?

Anyway, with this combo, the phone will handle the most basic everyday tasks just fine. Realme C11 2021 has an attractive design as well, thanks to the textured finish that we have seen in other phones from the company. The display on this phone is a 6.5-inch IPS LCD HD+ panel.

Moving to the camera, it has a single 8MP shooter at the back and a 5MP front-facing selfie camera. In terms of the battery, you’re getting a big 5000mAh cell that disappointingly charges via a micro USB cable and doesn’t support fast charging either. On the other hand, Realme Nepal decided to increase the price of this phone by Rs. 500 on both variants as well.

5. Samsung Galaxy A03 Core

Samsung Galaxy A03 Core Blue

With the rising pressure from different Chinese OEMs, Samsung was losing its ground in the budget and mid-range market. The brand did, however, get off to a promising start last year with smartphones like the Galaxy M02s and A03s. The company has now launched the Galaxy A03 Core smartphone in Nepal, which is a well-balanced device for the entry-level segment.

Under the hood, the A03 core packs a Unisoc SC9863A chipset. In terms of day-to-day performance, finding out how Samsung has optimized the processor and its custom Android skin: One UI Core was quite surprising.

Neck-and-neck

Upfront, Samsung has installed a 6.5-inch LCD screen with an HD+ resolution. As for the optics, the 8MP camera on the back and a 5MP sensor on the front. Moreover, Galaxy A03 Core is powered by a big 5000mAh battery that charges via a micro USB port. Sadly, it only supports a 7.75W charging that takes around 3 hours to fully juice up the phone.
