Worthy Mention (For Brand Lovers)

Realme has recently launched the successor of the C25 with some decent specifications. The new C25s is equipped with a 6.5 inches IPS LCD with a peak brightness of 570 nits. The resolution which the screen provides is 720 x 1600 pixels under the 30k price tag. Furthermore, the C25s operates on the latest Android 11 with Realme 2.0 as the user interface.

In terms of performance, the Realme C25s is equipped with MediaTek Helio G85 (12nm) processor which is a good chipset for gaming purposes.

Moreover, it has less RAM space and comparatively low build quality. Still, because of the good processor, we have placed it in ninth place.
10) Samsung Galaxy A21s:
The Galaxy A21s is the only Samsung brand phone on our list. This is one of the first phones in which Samsung has used some higher specs at a budget price. Like, there is a Quad camera setup with 48 MP as the main camera. In addition to that, there is very powerful chipset installed, the Exynos 850 (8nm). There is a 6.5 inches display with a resolution of 720 x 1600 pixels. However, the display panel used is TFT which is pretty much disappointing. The A21s is available in PKR 29,999/-.
I would recommend this phone to all the brand conscious people. The reason for it is that the A21s is a branded, stylish, powerful and an affordable phone from Samsung.
11) Samsung A12:
Samsung has a brand name on the top of which it has made its hierarchy in terms of pricing. Recently, the company has released the new A12 under the 30,000 price tag, However, if we compare its specs with other smartphones, it’s pretty disappointing. The phone comes with a 6.5 inches IPS panel with a resolution of 720 x 1600 pixels. Furthermore, the phone is equipped with a weak Helio P35 processor which is not up to the mark. In the case of memory space, the under 30 K variant has 3 GB RAM and 32 GB of internal memory. There is a quad rear camera with a 48 MP main camera along with an LED flash. For selfie lovers, there is a selfie camera with a resolution of 8 MP along with an LED flash. In addition to that, there is a side-mounted fingerprint scanner and a 5000 mAh powerful battery. The smartphone is available in Black, White, Blue, and Red colors.
You must all have realized why I placed it down the list. It has a comparatively very weak chipset and lower memory space and these two attributes influence the performance of the phone significantly. But i presume that brand lovers would still give it a try.
