In this post today, I’ll give you the best android phone[s] in India under 25000 benchmark. We have many best android phones under 25000, out of which a few are personally hand-picked as the best-of-the-best available smartphones today. Now, let’s begin the smartphone war đŸ˜‰

Best Android Phone[s] In India Under 25000

As mentioned, this post is strictly confined to the best available smartphones that run Android OS. Other OS smartphones are not our topic of concern at this moment. So, let us start.

Sony Xperia M4 Aqua

best android phone in india under 25000


Sony Xperia M4 Aqua is one of the best recent releases of the mid-range price smartphone from SONY. SONY stands for its Camera & Sound quality. SONY M4 Aqua does not compromise on the very special features promised. With 13MP rear camera and a HD recording & display, the M4 Aqua is quite a brilliant choice for those who love to explore the world around them with a smartphone camera. Also for the selfie-lovers, Xperia M4 Aqua has a 5MP camera on the front with brilliant capture. However, it does not have a flash for the selfie-camera like Xperia C4 dual does.


Talking of sound quality, the Xperia M4 Aqua has the best sound quality through the speakers and also on the ear-piece. Call noise reduction works pretty well and there seems to be no disturbance during the call. However, on the very busy outdoor environment, it might not be too good, but does sound pretty well.


Sony Xperia M4 Aqua is a better choice to choose over Sony Xperia C4 dual, as the M4 Aqua has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 MSM8939 chipset while the C4 dual has MediaTex MTK6752 chipset. Both the smartphones have 2GB RAM and 16GB ROM with an external memory slot expandable to 128GB.

  • The Sony Xperia M4 Aqua is dust and water resistant. You can film videos underwater. However, they clearly mentioned that the water has to be clean (like in Swimming Pool).
  • HD recording and playback seems pretty cool in the Xperia M4 Aqua. At 23000 INR, M4 Aqua stands as one of the best options to choose, if you basically use your smartphone for Camera, Sound and Games.


  • Like every other smartphone these days, SONY Xperia M4 Aqua also has the heating issue. On consistent usage, the phone tends to get heated up a little, less than the other rival of its kind.
  • Some users report problems with the screen touch. But in that case, it can be easily replaced with the warranty.

Priced at 23000 (approx), SONY Xperia M4 Aqua could be one of the best android smartphone in India under 25000.

OnePlus One

best phone for gaming under 25000

OPO is in the list of best Android phone[s] in India under 25000. OnePlusOne has got many fans since its release in India. OnePlusOne runs on Android Cyanogen OS and has successfully attracted many users till date. There are some special features that require special attention before actually purchasing it.

Best Gaming Phone Under 25000

OPO is one of the best gaming phone under 25000 in India. Apart from the heating issues it is accused of, it still can win the race over the other flagship smartphones. OPO can handle games that require high quality graphics with no/very little lag.  During few benchmark tests, OPO seems to perform well compared to the other flagship smartphones from Samsung or even iPhone. A very detailed examine on the benchmark tests have been mentioned at OPO Gaming Performance Test.


OPO also is good at capturing still images with a brilliant quality. With 13MP Primary camera and a 5MP Secondary camera, OPO also offers a better picture quality, similar or a way better than Sony Xperia M4 Aqua.

Water Resistant:

OPO is one hell of a phone with water resistant screen. It can work very well even with water on the screen, but not under the water. If you wanna know how it works, OnePlusOne – Water Proof Test. There’s nothing more I still could explain you, after the video. đŸ˜‰


OnePlusOne comes with a Non-removalble 3100 mAh battery for its 5.5 inch screen. Smartphones these days, tend to perform quite low in regard to the battery back-up. Not considering the quoted Stand-by and Talk-time, OPO performs well on moderate usage. On heavy usage, like any other smartphone, OPO also fails in long battery life and the user can also experience phone getting heated up slightly.

OPO is only available exclusively on Amazon for now. However, recent news provides the hint that it might be now available on all stores. OnePlus is also planning on the release of OnePlusTwo (the successor to OnePlusOne) and we still have to wait for it, a little more time.

HTC 826

best android phones under 20000

Next in race is the HTC 826 – Successor of HTC 816, which is one of the best mid-range smartphones in the market right now. Released few days ago, HTC 826 is one of the best phones for the specs offered at the price. Similar to the OPO and Sony Xperia M4 Aqua, HTC 826 has 2GB RAM. But it bangs the above two out of the race when it comes to the display, possessing ~401 ppi. Let’s have a look at the best of HTC 826.


HTC 826 is one of a kind with Primary and Secondary camera having 13MP for both of them. Selfie-lovers can have the best selfies ever with HTC 826. On personally using the camera, and also the phone, HTC impressed me a lot, while most of the other pieces from HTC failed to do that. Over-pricing is one of the issues that I do not prefer HTC to other smartphones. However, this time, HTC managed to release its mid-range smartphone with better features.


As I already mentioned above, HTC 826 has the best display with ~401 ppi. You could be attracted for its display on the very first sight. HTC 826 has a resolution of 1080×1920, and at that pixel density, it is quite good we can say.

Less Heating Problem:

Unlike OPO or Mi4 & Mi4i, HTC 826 has lesser heating problems on usage. Like Sony Xperia M4 Aqua, heating issue is not completely a resolved one, but is very less comparatively. On heavy usage, you might notice your HTC 826 heating up a bit, which is quite normal for the smartphones these days.

So, with no doubt, HTC 826 bags its position in the list of best android phone[s] in India under 25000.

You can choose among the above three smartphones, if you’re looking for a smartphone with good performance and priced under 25000. However, when it comes to OnePlusOne, there is a bigger issue of bad service in India which stands as a major concern for most of the users. The rest two, i.e; HTC 826 & SONY Xperia M4 Aqua has no such reported issues so far.

Also in the list, Sony Xperia C4 dual also can be added. But the phone is priced a bit over 25000, but is worth considering for the flash support for secondary camera. If you like our work, please Subscribe To Interest Waypoint. Thank You.
