However, if you are restrained to a tight budget, there are a couple of phones that you can get for less than Rs 20,000 in the market. These may not be the all-rounders you get in the premium segments but you will be assured that these phones offer the basics right and then some more.Over the last few months, we have seen a couple of new addition to this category form major players. Samsung released its Galaxy M40 with a powerful Snapdragon 675 chipset whereas Motorola came back with a bang with its One Vision. Also, the good old Poco F1 still stays as the preference for power users looking to get flagship-grade performance from a mid-teir phone.Without further delay, let’s look at some of the smartest options you can consider under Rs 20,000.Best smartphones under Rs 20,000 in July 2019Redmi Note 7 Pro (from Rs 13,999)The all-rounder from Xiaomi – this is a phone that’s good at everything. It looks stunning with its striking gradient colours, has a great 48-megapixel camera at the back for taking good photos at any time, a long-lasting battery and a big display. With a Snapdragon 675 chip, the phone can handle most mundane tasks with ease. At Rs 13,999, the Redmi Note 7 Pro offers 4GB RAM and 64GB storage as standard, making it a great value. Motorola One Vision (at Rs 19,999)The Motorola One Vision has been the surprise package this year. The One Vision sports a uniquely slim 21:9 display that’s tall as well. The screen is perfect for watching videos or movies shot in the 21:9 format, thereby making for an immersive viewing experience. The rear camera’s Night mode takes excellent photos with lots of sharpness. The stock Android interface sprinkled with Moto Experiences makes for clean and smooth user experience. And more than everything, it looks gorgeous and is easily the most beautiful phone you can buy under Rs 20,000.advertisementVivo Z1 Pro (from Rs 14,990)Vivo wants to play hard in the sub-Rs 20,000 segment with a feature-rich device and the Z1 Pro is exactly that. The Vivo Z1 Pro comes with a Snapdragon 675 chipset, a fullscreen display with a hole-punch cutout for the camera and a triple camera setup at the back – what else one needs. Also, the Z1 Pro gets Vivo’s stunning gradient colour schemes, making for a portable fashion statement on the move. And when you consider the starting price of Rs 15,990, it’s an unbeatable bargain. Samsung Galaxy M40 (from Rs 19,990)The Galaxy M40 is Samsung’s answer to the Redmi Note 7 Pro and Vivo Z1 Pro. Even though it’s expensive, it offers an unbeatable package – a Snapdragon 675 chipset, an LCD display with a hole-punch cutout, a triple camera setup and 6GB RAM – this is easily a power package. The combination of a 32MP main camera along with an 8MP wide-angle camera and 5MP depth camera is extremely versatile. And, it comes in striking gradient colours.Poco F1 (from Rs 17,999)If unbeatable specifications are all you want, the Poco F1 is just for you. It can blow away all the phones mentioned here with its Snapdragon 845 chipset – the flagship chip from last year. Coupled with a 4000mAh battery and big 6.18-inch Full HD+ LCD display, this is one of the best phones for power users who love gaming. Even the cameras are quite good and they can impress shutterbugs easily. However, the plastic build and the dated design with a huge display notch can take away from the premium feel.ALSO READ | Galaxy M30, Galaxy S10+ Galaxy A50: Samsung has many Galaxy phones, here is a list of phones worth buyingALSO READ | Redmi Note 7 Pro, Redmi Note 7S, Poco F1: Best Xiaomi phones to buy in India right nowALSO READ | 5 premium yet affordable phones worth buying in mid-2019: OnePlus 7, Asus 6z, Honor 20 and two moreGet real-time alerts and all the news on your phone with the all-new India Today app. Download from Post your comment Do You Like This Story?

Olympic champ Katie Taylor delights Dublin crowd with win

first_imgKATIE TAYLOR RETURNED to the ring with a win in Dublin’s Mansion House this evening.The reigning world and Olympic champion beat Caroline Veyre by a unanimous decision in front of a delighted home crowd.The fight was Taylor’s first since she claimed her fifth consecutive European Union title in July.And though she admitted that she was a little bit rusty early on, her class shone through in the final rounds.After a frustrating year and almost five months out of action, Taylor now faces a second bout in the space of 24 hours.INPHO/Morgan TreacyFinland’s Mira Potkonen — whom she has already beaten once this year — will be her opponent for a true ‘homecoming’ bout in her home town of Bray.The two fights will tee her up nicely for a hectic 2014 when she will bid to win her sixth European championship and a remarkable fifth world title.But tonight her focus was completely on Veyre, the recently crowned Canadian national champion at 60kg.The 25-year-old was drafted in as a late replacement when America’s Melissa Parker pulled out earlier this month due to travel problems.Veyre gave as good as she got in the opening exchanges and landed a few clean shots of her own.“I just got caught with a few silly shots just through my own fault really,” Taylor explained afterwards.“I wasn’t too aware of the shots coming at me. There was a bit of ring rust as well I suppose. McLaughlin and O’Malley watch the action (INPHO/Morgan Treacy)As the fight wore on Veyre’s defence dropped and in the final round, she shipped a string of right hooks from the advancing Taylor.Taylor said: “As I came in with my right hand, she was coming in with her left hand very low so my dad and Zaur in the corner were just telling me to feint and use my left hand and then as she comes in, meet her with the right.“It was working every time so I caught her with a few good shots.I did a few great things in there tonight but I also made a few mistakes as well so I have to clean that up for tomorrow night.Keatley kicks Munster to victory against the Dragons INPHO/Morgan Treacy“They weren’t hard shots but they’re the kind of punches that were knocking my head back and they’re the punches that the judges see.Maybe my defensive ability in there tonight wasn’t the best but hopefully it will be better tomorrow.Taylor was never really out of her comfort zone though and she stepped up a gear in the third round, forcing Veyre to take a standing count.Her defensive work was equally as impressive and she produced the highlight of the night without needing to throw a punch.Backed into a corner as the clock ticked down in the third, Taylor invited Veyre’s best shots but responded with a string of magical bobs and weaves that saw the Canadian miss her mark every time.It drew a huge roar from the hundreds of fans who turned out in the Mansion House to see their champion.Among them were Ireland rugby international Kevin McLaughlin and his recently retired Leinster team-mate Eoin O’Malley.last_img read more
