Best phones under BDT 20,000

There are quite a few great phones out in the market right now. Sadly, many of them require you to bankrupt yourself. We don’t want you to trade an arm and a leg for a smartphone, so here’s a list of great phones you can buy under 20,000 BDT right now. Hurry, because many of them are on sale for a short time at many different vendors. You may find many of these phones at local markets as well.

  1. Xiaomi Mi A2

The Xiaomi Mi A2 is a pretty decent phone. It is the most expensive phone on this list, however. It has great specs. The version we recommend is the Global Version with 4GB RAM and 32GB ROM. The phone has a 5.99-inch display with a 2160×1080 pixel resolution. Having an octa-core Snapdragon 660 under the hood gives the phone significant power as well. The cameras on the phone are also very impressive. The front camera is a fantastic 20 megapixels with AI capabilities. The back has two cameras, at 12 and 20 megapixels each. The phone can take 4K videos with the back cameras, although only at 30 fps. A2 has no headphone jack, as is the norm now. It has significantly thick bezels, however. Some may not like that on a phone nowadays. Overall, if you want a great phone that can run most apps and games but still take stunning photos, and don’t mind bezels, this is the phone for you.

  1. Xiaomi Mi 8 Lite

Another Xiaomi phone is up next on the list. The Mi 8 Lite has an impressive 24 megapixels in its front camera. This makes the selfies look extremely crisp.  The display is a huge 6.26 inches, packing a resolution of 2280×1080 pixels. 4GB of RAM may not be the highest in smartphones these days, but it comes with a whopping 64GB of ROM. The Snapdragon 660 is a dependable processor and will pop up on this list a few times. The phone comes with a notched design with may not be to everyone’s liking. Other than that, it’s a very good phone that could be an awesome daily driver for many.

  1. Moto G6

The 32 GB version of Moto G6 fits very easily into this category. While the Snapdragon 450 is not as powerful as other chipsets on the list, it’s still decent. It’s got a display with a 1080p resolution. The GPU is as impressive as anything on this list, being an Adreno 506. It’s got two cameras, 12 and 5 megapixels respectively, on the back. The front has one 16-megapixel camera with LED flash. The phone can perform very well for something that’s so inexpensive. The phone looks a little old fashioned but it performs great.

  1. Moto X (4th gen)

The more buff version of the previous entry, the Moto X is cheaper than the weaker G6 now due to a sale going on. This makes this beast an automatic choice for the list. This is also a little old-fashioned to look at, with the thick bezels and everything. The real impressive parts are hidden under the hood. The phone boasts a Snapdragon 630 with an Adreno 508 GPU. The 3 GB of RAM is just enough for you to be able to multitask or play games on your phone like PUBG. It sports 2 cameras on the back at 12 and 8 megapixels. The front features a single 16-megapixel camera. If you like powerful phones with good cameras, but want to buy one on a budget, and don’t mind bezels, it could be a good daily driver for you.

  1. Lenovo Z5

We recently reviewed this and had to include it in the list. It has its fair share of problems, and the marketing was almost 100% lies, but it delivered. The 6 GB of RAM really lets you use however many apps you want to. The Snapdragon 636 is a powerful enough processor, and the Adreno 509 GPU is one of the better GPU’s in the market now. The display is notched, but the cameras are decent. They may not be as good in low light as they are in well-lit scenes. All in all, as my own personal daily driver, we have found it to be good enough.
