Choosing Phones Under 15000 in Nepal 2024

Whether you are a tech wizard or someone who has no idea about technology at all, we hope to help you out either way. Below is a list of qualities that are generally considered to be the pillars of a good mobile under 15000 in Nepal.

Now remember, some phones may be good at one thing and bad at the other. We’ll base our list on these pillars and choose the phones that provide an overall value that’s worthy of your money.

Build Quality

Everyone would love to see a metal frame and ceramic back on their phones, but at this price range, it’s a bit unrealistic.

You can expect plastic frames and plastic back panels in smartphones under Rs. 15000 in Nepal.

Display

A higher resolution means a sharper display, a higher refresh rate means a faster display, and higher brightness means, well, the display can get bright.

On smartphones with display sizes ranging from 6″ to 6.9″, FHD+ resolution is usually considered the sweet spot and you should look for faster refresh rates as well.

But at this price segment, you will find it difficult to find phones with over 60Hz refresh rate and FHD+ resolution. Also, the bezels are rather thick and may not be symmetrical across all sides.

Performance

The chip is what drives the smartphone and is probably the most confusing part for anyone who is shopping for one.

Generally, you can look at the clock speed and core count to make a vague estimation of the quality and performance of the chip. If you’re not convinced, you can read our review for the full details.

Camera

It’s a bit difficult to confidently say if a phone takes good photos as much of it is software-based optimizations now. You can read our reviews or look at a brand’s history for image processing.

The technology has improved to the point that most phones take really good photos given good lighting conditions, you can expect phones even in this price range to take decent daylight photos when there is enough light for the sensor.

Battery

The general notion is that a larger battery will last longer. At least a capacity of 5000mAh has seemed to become the norm, especially among budget phones.

Also, 30W to 60W is considered fast charging. However, in this budget, you can expect 10–20W to be the norm.

#5. Infinix Hot 30i

Infinix Hot 30i Verdict

hot 30i

For a phone that starts at under Rs. 15K, the Hot 30i is quite decent. It may not be the best in any specific category but at this budget, it has a good overall performance. The only complaint we can really make is that it supports only 10W charging for a big battery of 5000mAh which can take over 3 hours for a full charge.

PRICING

Rs. 14,499 (4/64GB)

Rs. 16,999 (8/128GB)

Pros

  • Decent design
  • Fingerprint sensor
  • 90Hz display
  • 50MP camera
  • 5000mAh battery

Cons

  • Android 12
  • Performance could’ve been better
  • 10W charging

Reasons to Buy

The Infinix Hot 30i has a beautiful design and it’s one of the few mobiles under 15000 in Nepal that offers 8GB RAM and 128GB of storage. You get a fingerprint sensor for security.

You get a 50MP main camera with this phone. It’s a good shooter with fast focus and decent dynamic range.

Furthermore, the display has a refresh rate of 90Hz so the phone feels pretty smooth. You also get a large 5000mAh which can easily last you over a day of usage.

Reasons to Avoid

You get Android 12 out of the box and Infinix XOS skin on top. There are a couple of bloatware apps preinstalled with the phone. If you prefer a smooth Android experience you might want to look into some other phones.

This phone is also not the most powerful phone available on this list as it features an octa-core Helio G37. Also, it only comes with 10W charging which can take well over 3 hours to fully charge.

#4. Honor X5 Plus

Honor X5 Plus Verdict

HONOR X5 Plus

For around Rs. 15,000, the Honor X5 Plus is a great smartphone. The phone looks stunning and the main camera is impressive. However, the phone’s sole major drawback lies in its performance.

PRICING

Rs. 13,990 (4/64GB)

Pros

  • Impressive camera
  • Stunning design
  • Solid battery life
  • Fingerprint sensor

Cons

  • Mediocre performance
  • Slow charging

Reasons to Buy

The Honor X5 Plus brings a flat frame with a good-looking finish on the back. The camera is enclosed in a shiny squircle that has a radial effect. The display of the phone supports a 90Hz refresh rate, which is commendable for a budget phone.

The power button on the right side also serves as a fingerprint sensor, allowing easy device unlocking and biometric authentication.

There is a dual camera setup on the back comprising a 50MP main and a 2MP depth sensor. The phone captures really good photos, especially considering its price.

The battery department of the Honor X5 Plus is strong with its unusual 5200mAh battery capacity. A full charge easily delivers 1–2 days of battery life.

Reasons to Avoid

The Honor X5 Plus comes with a MediaTek Helio G36 chipset and 4GB of RAM, along with 64GB of storage. The processor itself isn’t particularly fast and you can handle light apps, but you may notice some lag when opening and switching between apps.

While the battery backup is pretty good on the phone, the charging speed is disappointing, supporting only 10W, which is very slow. It can take around 2.5 hours to fully charge the device from 4% to 100%.

#2. Redmi 12C

Redmi 12C Verdict

redmi 12c

Redmi 12C is our second choice for the best phones under 15000 in Nepal. The Redmi 12C provides exceptional value for money. Its standout feature is its performance, thanks to the Helio G85 chipset. Furthermore, its camera, display, and battery are reasonably good for the price.

PRICING

Rs. 12,999 (4/64GB)

Rs. 15,999 (6/128GB)

Pros

  • Excellent performance
  • Decent back and front camera performance
  • Solid battery life
  • Includes a fingerprint sensor

Cons

  • Dated Micro-USB port, no USB-C
  • Shipped with Android 12
  • Slow charging speed

Reasons to Buy

Typically, entry-level phones tend to compromise on the processor, the Redmi 12C however breaks this trend with the Helio G85 chipset. It effortlessly handles everyday tasks and commonly used applications like Facebook, YouTube, and TikTok. The phone is very responsive for the price.

The Redmi 12C features a 50MP main camera, which is accompanied by a depth sensor. The quality of photos taken with the main camera is quite decent but lacks dynamic range. The colors are acceptable and the front camera performance is quite satisfactory.

Moving on to the battery, the Redmi 12C excels in this aspect. With its impressive 5000mAh capacity, it can easily last for over a day, and even up to two days, without breaking a sweat. Oh yeah, the phone comes with a fingerprint sensor as well.

Reasons to Avoid

The phone uses a Micro-USB port for charging which is not optimal in 2024. Furthermore, the phone ships with Android 12 out of the box even though Android 13 was already available when the phone was released.

The charging speed is also not up to standard as it supports only 10W charging which takes nearly 3 hours for the phone to charge fully.
