We’ve also included the pros and cons of each phone to help you choose the best one for your needs.

Prices may Vary

It’s worth noting that all the prices shown below were accurate at the time of writing. As smartphone prices can fluctuate with time and new offers being rolled out, you may find some phones have had their pricing altered when you go shopping for them.

Also, we have decided to include phones that are over Rs. 25,000 by 5 percent. This was done so that worthy phones wouldn’t get disqualified over a technicality.

Choosing Phones Under 25000 in Nepal 2024

Buying a phone can be overwhelming with all the features and specs aspects that you need to consider. Therefore, it’s essential to ensure that the phone meets the basic requirements first.

Below are the qualities that are generally considered to be the pillars of a good mobile phone under 25000 in Nepal. These factors can help you determine what matters most to you and make your decision accordingly.

Latest Mobile Prices

Now, please remember that some phones may excel in one aspect while lacking in another. We will base our list on these pillars and select the phones that offer an overall value worthy of your money.

Build Quality

Expecting premium build quality with metal frames and ceramic back would not be realistic for a phone of this budget.

You can expect plastic frames and plastic back panels in smartphones under Rs. 25000 in Nepal. They’re not the most premium or durable materials but they are still very respectable.


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 (90Hz or higher) as well.


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.


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 reputation 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 in this price range to take decent daylight photos with usable night shots.


The general notion is that a larger battery will last longer. At least a capacity of 5000mAh has seemed to become the norm. So, you can expect phones with similar battery capacity in this price segment.

Also, 30W to 60W is considered fast charging. However, in this budget, you get a mixed bag of 18W and higher.

#5. Poco M5

Poco M5 Verdict

hot 30i

The Poco M5 focuses on providing good performance for the price with a good display and a good battery life. The camera and charging could have been better though. However, it is a very good budget phone and it undercuts most of its competitors.


Rs. 20,499 (4/64GB)

Rs. 23,999 (6/128GB)


  • Good design
  • 90Hz FHD+ display

  • LCD display

ALSO READ: Best Phones Under 20000 in Nepal (July 2024 Updated)

The phone is a performance monster as it has the Helio G99 chipset. This chipset is usually found in much more expensive phones than the M5, ranging above Rs. 30,000.

You get a large 5000mAh battery that easily lasts over a day for normal users.

Reasons to Avoid

Cameras are not its strong suit. The main camera is average. The photos are not very sharp and exposure has some issues with this phone.

The phone also lacks an ultrawide camera and only 1080p@30fps videos are supported. Additionally, the screen is an IPS LCD and not an OLED. The OLED display provides better colors and deep blacks.

Although the phone comes with a 5000mAh battery and 22.2W charger, the phone only supports 18W fast charging, which takes 2 hours to fully charge. It is not the fastest.

#4. Redmi 12

Redmi 12 Verdict

redmi 12

The Redmi 12 is a phone made with the word decent in mind. It’s decent in all categories, from design to camera to battery performance, and thus provides an overall value that is quite attractive to your everyday user.


Rs. 17,999 (6/128GB)

Rs. 20,999 (8/256GB)


  • Glass back
  • IP53 rating
  • 90Hz FHD+ display
  • Good main camera
  • Great battery life


  • Not the best chipset on our list
  • LCD display
  • 1080p@30fps videos
  • Slow charging

Reasons to Buy

The glass-back design of the phone is quite good and minimalistic. The phone is also IP53 rated and has a hole punch camera. Overall, the phone has a very clean design to it.

The Full HD+ display refreshes at 90Hz and can tone down to 36Hz. The phone has relatively small bezels and provides a pleasant multimedia experience.

ALSO READ: Best Phones Under 30000 in Nepal (July 2024 Updated)

The phone features a triple camera setup with a 50MP f/1.8 main camera. Xiaomi has included an ultrawide camera this time which was previously not available on the Redmi 10.

The phone has a large 5000mAh battery, which provides great battery life.

Reasons to Avoid

The chipset could’ve been better. The Helio G88 is suitable for basic tasks and light games only. So, if you’re looking for a performance-centric phone for gaming, the Redmi 12 is not the right choice for you.

Furthermore, even though the chipset allows for 60fps video, the phone’s shooting mode is capped at 1080@30fps.

The display is decent for an LCD, but considering that you can find AMOLED displays in phones for under 25000, it falls behind.

Lastly, the 18W charging support is not fast enough by today’s standards, where over 30W is becoming the norm.

#3. Realme C55

Realme C55 Verdict

Realme C55

Now, this is the same phone as the Narzo N55. Well, what we mean to say is that the Narzo N55 is actually, a rebranded C55. The 64MP camera is one of the best daylight shooters we’ve seen for phones in this price range. It comes with Android 13 out of the box and supports 33W fast charging which is segment-leading.


Rs. 21,999 (4/64GB)

Rs. 25,499 (6/128GB)


  • Good design
  • Hole punch camera design
  • 33W fast charging
  • Decent camera performance
  • Android 13


  • Too many bloatware
  • Lacks ultrawide camera
  • No stabilization in the videos

Reasons to Buy

The Realme C55 has a plastic build with a flat frame and dual cameras on the rear. On the front, it has a hole punch and the phone is pretty thin as well.

The phone features a large 6.72-inch FHD+ IPS LCD display. It supports a 90Hz refresh rate, and 680 nits brightness.

The cameras are surprisingly good. It’s one of the best shooters in this price range in Nepal. It can also shoot 1080p@60fps videos, which is pretty good.

The phone is powered by a 5000mAh battery and a 33W charger in the box. In terms of software, it runs on Android 13 topped with Realme UI 4.0.

Reasons to Avoid

The Helio G88 may be a decent chipset for under 20K, but when it comes to a budget of around Rs. 25,000, the performance of the chipset leaves users wanting more.

Realme’s software is usually pretty smooth, but the ads and bloatware on the phone may hamper the user experience.

The phone lacks an ultrawide camera. The main camera is good but even an 8MP sensor would’ve made this phone so much better as it would provide a different perspective.

#2. Redmi Note 11

Redmi Note 11 Verdict

redmi note 11

The Redmi Note 11 is a good budget smartphone that offers a smooth and vibrant 90Hz AMOLED display and dual speaker setup, but you can get better performance from other phones in the same price bracket.


Rs. 23,999 (4/64GB)

Rs. 24,999 (4/128GB)

Rs. 27,999 (6/128GB)


  • Good design
  • 90Hz AMOLED panel
  • Good battery life
  • Decent main camera
  • Dual speaker


  • Poor gaming capabilities
  • Average ultrawide camera
  • No 4K video support

Reasons to Buy

The plastic rear panel features a cool finish with glitter spread throughout the entire panel, and the IP53 certification provides some reassurance when it comes to exposure to water. However, it’s worth noting that it can only handle gentle water spray and is not designed for submersion.

ALSO READ: Best Phones Under 15000 in Nepal (July 2024 Updated)

The color reproduction of the Redmi Note 11’s display is good, which is what we expect from an AMOLED panel. On top of that, the added 90Hz smoothness makes this a good upgrade over standard 60Hz screens.

In terms of the camera, while exposure can be hit or miss, the 50MP sensor generally produces good photos in daylight conditions with a decent level of detail.

Furthermore, the Redmi Note 11 boasts two dedicated speakers that deliver relatively loud and clear sound. Moreover, the large 5000mAh battery provides around 8 hours of screen-on-time even with an hour of gaming.

Reasons to Avoid

While the performance of the Snapdragon 680 is enough for general usage, the Redmi Note 11 cannot play games at higher graphics and fps settings. In our testing, it delivered an average of 29.8 fps while playing PUBG Mobile in smooth and high frame rate settings.

The 8MP ultrawide sensor of the Note 11 is only decent. The ultrawide photos have a slightly toned-down color compared to the main sensor. They look soft and lack proper detail.

Lastly, the rear camera of the Note 11 doesn’t support 4K video recording. It is capped at 1080p 60fps.

Redmi Note 12 4G Verdict

note 12 4g

The Redmi Note 12 4G undoubtedly offers incredible value for money. It strikes a perfect balance, featuring a 120Hz AMOLED display panel, a great design, and a satisfactory set of cameras and performance. However, if gaming is your top priority and you’re seeking the absolute best performance in this price range, you may want to consider alternatives like the Poco M5 or even the Narzo 50.


Rs. 22,999 (4/128GB)

Rs. 24,999 (6/128GB)

Rs. 26,999 (8/128GB)

  • Great design with an IP53 rating
  • Long battery life
  • Fast charging speed
  • Decent main camera


  • Subpar gaming capability
  • Average ultrawide camera

Reasons to Buy

The Redmi Note 12 4G boasts an impressive design, featuring a flat back and frame. Despite being made of plastic, the back sports a frosted glass finish. Xiaomi also provides an IP53 rating, offering some protection against dust and water spray.

The display of the Redmi Note 12 outshines its competitors with its vibrant colors and deep blacks, thanks to its superior AMOLED panel. Furthermore, it refreshes at 120Hz and the phone feels fluid.

The battery life of the Redmi Note 12 is great. A full charge of the battery can easily provide over a day of battery life. It supports 33W fast charging, which can charge over 50% in just around 30 minutes.

You get a 50MP main camera and in daylight conditions, the photos from the main camera are good, with enough sharpness and natural colors.

Reasons to Avoid

The Redmi Note 12 4G is the first smartphone to come with the Snapdragon 685 SoC. However, when it comes to performance upgrades, the chipset does not offer a significant boost and the device’s performance limitations become noticeable when running resource-heavy apps, particularly gaming. In terms of gaming performance, it falls short compared to other impressive aspects of the phone.

The ultrawide photos are also average for the price. While the colors appear natural, there is a noticeable lack of sharpness and details.
