Considering the fact that there is heck load of smartphones at least on Android ecosystem that makes picking the right device for someone pretty darn difficult. Let’s ease your trouble a little bit, here’s a list of the best smartphones under 30,000 in Nepal that won’t let you down.
Redmi Note 7 Pro
Kicking things off with the most criticized aspect of the phone, the 48MP Sony IMX586 sensor despite the Snapdragon 675 bottleneck and how it handles pictures via pixel binning, the Redmi Note 7 Pro undeniably makes up for some great looking shots and with the inclusion of night mode on an f/1.8 lens gives it the capability to shoot decent pictures with low noise even in dimly lit environments.
Apart from that, there’s 6.3-inch FHD+ IPS LCD display with a dewdrop notch, a 19.5:9 aspect ratio that dominates the front, a premium looking glass back with gradient color variants with Gorilla Glass 5 protection both to the front and the back. The Snapdragon 675 SoC makes up for great performance and wonderful gaming experience. With 4,000mAh battery onboard, endurance and screen on time are impressive as well.
You can choose between the 4GB+64GB and a 6GB+128GB variant available at the price of Rs. 24,999 and Rs. 29,999 in Nepal respectively.
Samsung Galaxy A50
A super sharp and super vibrant 6.4-inch FHD+ Super AMOLED panel on the front that uses in-display fingerprint scanner and a minimalistic dewdrop notch make it one of the best phones you can get at this budget. What makes it even more appealing is the triple camera setup to the back with a 25MP f/1.7 primary sensor, 8MP f/2.2 ultrawide sensor, and a 5MP f/2.2 dedicated depth sensor.
The performance side of things is handled by the Exynos 9610 octa-core SoC, which is powered up by a 4,000mAh battery that can easily serve you throughout the day. It charges via USB Type-C port and the 15-watt fast charging is the cherry on top. It comes with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of onboard storage with the support for expansion via dedicated micro SD card slot.
While the usual price is Rs. 31,490, this one can actually be had for just about Rs. 30,000 in Nepal, which makes it a no brainer.
Realme 2 Pro
A beautiful design, a 6.3-inch IPS LCD FHD+ display up front with a dewdrop notch and amazing color variants to choose from makes the Realme 2 Pro an eye candy. This one has a dual camera setup to the back with a 16MP f/1.7 primary sensor coupled with a dedicated 2MP depth sensor that can even record 4K video at 30fps.
The Snapdragon 660 SoC powers this baby up which runs on a decently sized 3,500mAh battery with 10Watt charging. This one comes with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of onboard storage. On paper, it might not seem interesting but the recent price cut that this one recently received bringing it in at an alluring price of Rs. 24,999 in Nepal.
Honor 20 Lite
Honor is a sub-brand of Huawei which means the build quality is as good as it can get; with a wonderful gradient back that houses the triple camera setup with 24mp f/1.8 primary, 8MP f/2.2 ultrawide and a dedicated 2.0MP f/2.4 depth sensor. It has a 32MP selfie shooter and a 3,400mAh battery.

Huawei Nova 3i
Do I have to mention that the Huawei Nova 3i was the best selling smartphone of 2018? And that’s for a reason. It still holds its place in the midrange smartphone segment in 2019. Premium glass sandwich design, a 6.3-inch FHD+ IPS LCD display to the front and the praiseworthy gradient color back make it enchantingly beautiful.
Dual AI-powered cameras with 24MP primary and a dedicated 2MP depth sensor make it a great camera phone as well. It is powered by the Kirin 710 chipset and comes with 4GB of RAM and a whopping 128GB of onboard storage.
This one usually goes for around Rs. 32,990, but you can get it for as low as Rs. 30,000 in Nepal.
Huawei Y9 2019
The Huawei Y9 2019 is a good all-around performer. The design is a classic Huawei i.e. the much-loved glass sandwich design. It boasts a humongous 6.5-inch FHD+ IPS LCD Panel, which, when coupled with the 4,000mAh battery on board makes this device great for content consumption.
The Kirin 710 chipset powers the device, meaning performance and even gaming is not an issue. It is backed up with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of onboard storage which is expandable via micro SD up to 400GB.
The Huawei Y9 2019 can be purchased for Rs. 29,990 in Nepal.
Just like every other Huawei and Honor mid-range offerings, the Kirin 710 Chipset is the SoC powering up the Honor 8x as well which means performance is good. The glass sandwich design houses the 20MP f/1.8 primary sensor with 2MP dedicated depth sensor array to the back.
The 4GB+64GB variant sells for Rs. 28,990 and the latter 4GB+128GB variant goes for Rs. 30,500 in Nepal.
Samsung Galaxy A30
Samsung has gone bonkers with the A series this time and the A30 is no exception. The Samsung Galaxy A30 comes with a 6.4-inch Super AMOLED display up front with a dewdrop notch that houses a 16MP f/2.0 selfie camera that can record videos at 1080p.
The back of the device is made out of plastic which takes away the premium in-hand feel of the device but the 16MP f/1.7 primary sensor coupled with 5MP f/2.2 ultrawide secondary sensor compensates for it.
It runs on Samsung’s One UI built on top of Android 9 Pie and has 4GB of RAM coupled with 64GB of onboard storage which is expandable up to 1TB via the dedicated micro SD card slot. It runs off a 4,000mAh battery with support for 15Watt fast charging via USB Type-C and it even has Bluetooth 5.0.
