Best Smartphones Under 45000 in Pakistan

So worry not, as we have compiled a list of top-notch mid-range devices that have come out this year.

Redmi Note 11 – Best Smartphone Under 45000

Redmi has just launched its Note 11 series including Note 11 and Note 11 Pro. Redmi Note 11 series brings powerful upgrades to its camera system, charging speed, display, and SoC—making flagship-level smartphone performance more accessible than before. Here we will discuss the non-pro variant because the Pro variant does not fit in our list because of the high price.

Anyhow, Redmi Note 11 has come in two variants, 4/128GB and 6/128GB. Other than RAM, all remaining specs are the same. It is available in 3 colours i.e. Graphite Gray, Twilight Blue and Star Blue.

Design and Build

Hands down! Redmi Note 11 is one of the best-looking smartphones under 45,000 in Pakistan right now. It feels nice in the hands and offers that premium look and feel because of its trendy flat-edge body design. Moreover, it has dual super linear speakers located at the top and bottom of the phone for giving you a complete entertainment experience with immersive stereo sound for gaming or watching videos.

The quad-camera setup (in black colour) at the back is positioned really well, enhancing the aesthetics of the device. And at the front, right in the middle, it has a tiny punch hole just like the Samsung Note Series. The fingerprint is located on the right side where the thumb sits naturally. It is both fast and accurate all the time.

Here’s the detailed video review of the Mid Range Champion

Performance, Cameras and Battery Life

Redmi Note 11 has a mid-range Octa-core processor i.e. Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 680 based on 6nm process technology combined with a highly capable Adreno 610 GPU. Although the latest MediaTek gaming chipsets are efficient and powerful, we’d still prefer Snapdragon and Adreno any day.

The variant that we have over here in Pakistan offers 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage, which is plenty for a phone with the processor and the GPU mentioned above.

At the back of the phone, you’d find the 50MP AI Quad Camera, with the primary sensor being the 50MP 1/1.52”, an 8MP ultra-wide-angle camera with f/2.2 aperture, a 2MP macro camera and a 2MP depth sensor. At under 45,000, these lenses offer one of the best results for both images and video. At the front, the 13MP In-Display Camera is capable of capturing some decent shots with high dynamic range and clarity.

It packs a huge 5000mAh built-in non-removable battery with USB Type-C reversible connector port. It supports 33W fast charging. The company claims that it will get a 100% charge in just 60 minutes.

Overall, you get a decent package in the smartphones for under 45,000 in Pakistan. You can grab it from mistore.pk.

Realme 9i – 6GB

Realme 9i comes in at the second spot in our list of best smartphones under 45,000 in Pakistan. Realme has been one of the smartphone brands in Pakistan as well as around the globe that offers good value for money when it comes to making smartphones.

The above-mentioned Redmi Note 11 and Realme 9i share some same specs including processor and battery. However, there are some differences as well i.e. triple camera setup, screen size and design. Let’s dig into it.

Design and Build

Though it is well built and looks and feels great in the hands, the back is made out of plastic unlike the glass-built back with Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection found on the Redmi Note 11. Just like the Redmi Note 11, the fingerprint is located on the right side of the phone which is equally fast and accurate. It has the rear triple-camera setup placed in a verticle layout at the top left just like other Realme devices we’ve seen in the past. The Front-camera is basically a punch hole located at the top left of the screen which looks great too.

Here’s the Full Review

The phone has come with Dart charging. The company claims that with a 10-minute charge, you will be able to use your phone for 4 hours of chat, 9 hours of calling and 23 hours for music. It comes in 2 colours i.e. Prism black and Prism blue.

Performance, Cameras and Battery Life

Let’s talk about the main highlight of the phone first, the 90Hz display. Well, I’d take a smartphone with the 90hz display any day if it has the same specs and price similar to that of the competition. There’s a visible difference when a 90Hz panel is used against a normal 60Hz in terms of responsiveness. It was pretty hard to list the Realme 9i at the second spot as it is the only budget mid-ranger with a higher response rate display. But, we considered the looks and build quality as well to list it at the second spot (our preference though).

The Realme 9i has a Snapdragon 680 chipset with 6GBs of RAM. Normal day-to-day usage is pretty great on all the phones listed here. It has 128 GB of internal storage which can be expanded via Micro SD up to 1 TB.

The AI Quad Camera has a primary lens equipped with a 50MP ultra HD main, and a highly capable sensor to take bright and pure good photos even in low light. The other two lenses are a 2MP Macro lens and a 2MP depth sensor. The images are crisp and clear taken daytime and night images are good enough to be shared on social media. On the front, it has a 16MP Primary camera with AI and plenty of modes and customizations.

Realme 9i packs a 5000mAh battery with great endurance with dart charging capability of up to 33W. The 33W fast charger comes in the box too which is great.

If for some reason, you want to skip the two mentioned above, these smartphones are worthy to be considered to buy under 45000 as well in Pakistan.

OPPO F19 Pro

OPPO launched its F19 series last year including F19 and F19 Pro. Here we will discuss the Pro model because of its eye-catching features and affordability. First of all, the phone has come with 8GB of RAM. This is the only phone on the list with 8GB RAM. That’s why we have added this phone to the list. Let’s discuss its other key specs.

smartphones under 45000

The device has a 6.43-inch HD+ AMOLED screen with Corning Gorilla Glass 6 protection which is quite impressive, but the one downside is that it has a 60Hz refresh rate which is not as bad. Anyhow, it has a 1080 x 2400 Pixels resolution.  Additionally, the phone has a 4310 mAh battery with 30W charging support.

Moving forward there is a quad camera setup at the back. The phone has a 48MP main shooter, 8MP Ultra Wide, 2MP Depth Sensor, and a 2MP depth lens which provides decent quality images. The main highlight of the phone is its 32MP selfie camera. It is available in different colour options including Fluid Black, Fantastic Purple and Crystal Silver.

Overall, the OPPO F19 Pro is a good mid-range smartphone that looks premium, has a large display, decent performance, large RAM and storage, good cameras, and long battery life.

But its specs are mind-blowing and it provides the best selfie camera among all other phones on the list. Also, you can get the phone at discounted price at different retailers.

We’ve also got lists of the best smartphones under 40,000 and under 30,000 then under 15,000 PKR that you might want to look into.

Here is the detailed review of OPPO F19 Pro

Vivo Y21T

smartphones under 45000

The reason we’ve placed the Vivo Y21T here on this list is because of its supreme performance and outstanding camera technology. It is a gorgeous-looking phone with many other high-end specs. Let’s check out all the key specs.

Design and Build

The Y21T has a slim and stylish design that fits well with Vivo’s aesthetic yet advanced gadget philosophy. This item is only 8.00mm thick and has a 2.5D Flat Flame design. It has a 6.5″IPS LCD screen with a 60Hz refresh rate. The only drawback is its resolution which is not Full HD. Anyhow, it comes in two colour variants, Midnight Blue and Pearl White.

Performance, Cameras and Battery Life

Vivo Y21T comes in with Qualcomm Snapdragon 680 backed with 4GB RAM (Plus 2GB virtual RAM) and 128 GBs of ROM. You can even expand the storage to 1TB Maximum with an SD Card. With the built-in Non-removable 5000 mAh battery, you can expect a full day of usage without any problem. Moreover, it has an 18W fast charging support. All the above-mentioned smartphones have at least 30W charging but it has a lower charging rate which is a minor drawback.

Furthermore, the phone has a triple camera setup at the back. The back camera setup includes a 50 MP, f/1.8, 2 MP macro and 2 MP depth sensor. The Vivo Y21T’s camera promises good performance both in daylight and low-light situations. Unfortunately, the phone has an 8MP selfie camera which is a bit low. But don’t worry it has come with a lot of filters and effects.

Oppo A57 (5G):

Oppo A57 is one of the best smartphones under PKR 45,000 that you can find in the market right now. Now, let’s take a look at the specs and features of this smartphone.

Design and Build:

The Oppo A57 is a fantastic device with a quality design layout. The smartphone is available in three color options: Lilac, Blue, and Black. Each of them is rather stunning in its simple color choice. On the other hand, the build quality exudes a rather elegant feel, and the side frame’s metallic appearance complements the phone’s overall design. However, the side panel is made of plastic.


If we talk about the display, the phone is equipped with a 6.56-inch IPS LCD panel with minimal bezels and a 90Hz refresh rate. However, in the outside environment, the brightness nits are not enough. Overall, the design makes a nice first impression.


The smartphone is equipped with a 6nm MediaTek MT6833P Dimensity 810 5G chipset, which is built to handle multi-tasking quickly. The octa-core speed may reach 2.4GHz, which is thought to be a sweet spot for mid-range smartphones. Apart from it, the smartphone is equipped with Mali-G57 MC2 GPU.


The Oppo A57’s camera experience is rather impressive. The 13MP primary can take good shots in the daytime. However, that does not imply that the phone can effectively manage other departments. However, compared to its predecessor, the low-light images are somewhat better. In addition to the primary lens, the phone also includes a 2MP depth lens in the rear panel. However, it has no appreciable effect on the camera’s quality. For selfie lovers, the company includes a standard 8MP selfie camera that produces respectable portrait images.


A Li-Po 5000 mAh battery powers the Oppo A57. However, one of the drawbacks of this phone is that rapid charging is not supported, which can even be seen in budget smartphones these days.o
