All the smartphones listed below have gone through our usual set of performance tests and have earned a place in this list. So, without any more delay, here’s a look at our top picks for best mobiles under Rs. 25,000.
The Realme 9 Pro+ elevates the 9 series from the mainstream segment to the mid-range. The 9 Pro+ is priced higher than the 9 Pro and offers some added features such as optical image stabilisation (OIS) in the camera, which has been missing from Realme’s lineup for a long time.
The Realme 9 Pro+ is available in a colour-changing Sunrise Blue finish. The back panel transitions from blue to red upon exposure to UV light if you choose this. It has a slim profile overall and is also quite light, which makes it comfortable for one-handed use.
The phone offers enough grunt with its MediaTek Dimensity 920 SoC and it can easily handle demanding 3D games as well as take care of day-to-day tasks. Battery life is also quite good and it charges quickly using its bundled 60W charger.
Still camera performance is quite impressive. The primary camera with its OIS system captures clear and crisp photos in daylight and performs well in low-light conditions too. Android 12 also makes it here with Realme UI 3.0 and it brings most of its highlight features with it.
Poco X5 Pro is a new mid-range 5G smartphone under Rs. 25,000 in India. The new Poco X-series smartphone comes with a few upgrades over the outgoing model. The phone has a tall 6.67-inch 10-bit AMOLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate.
The display is protected by a layer of Corning Gorilla Glass 5. Unlike its predecessor, the Poco X5 Pro gets a plastic rear panel. The phone has a triple rear camera setup with a 108-megapixel main camera. There is also an 8-megapixel ultra-wide camera and a 2-megapixel macro sensor.

The Realme 10 Pro+ 5G sports a 6.7-inch full-HD+ AMOLED display with 120Hz refresh rate support. It is the most affordable smartphone to feature a curved screen. The phone's base model with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage is priced at Rs. 24,999. The 8GB + 128GB and 8GB + 256GB storage options are priced at Rs. 25,999 and Rs. 27,999.
