The Samsung Galaxy F62 is another great smartphone to invest in, under the Rs 20,000 price segment. The new mid-range smartphone from the South Korean brand sports a plastic back and frame, but still manages to look and feel sturdy. It’s a thick phone at 9.5mm, and weighs around 218g. The highlight of the Samsung Galaxy F62 is the Exynos 9825 SoC. The UI looks slick, switching between apps is snappy, and the phone doesn’t heat up with regular use. Games run just fine too. The Samsung Galaxy F62 features a 7,000mAh battery, which is quite impressive in this price range. All the cameras on the Samsung Galaxy F62 do above-average jobs when shooting in daylight. Low-light performance for videos is not that impressive. The smartphone is priced at Rs 18,999 onFlipkart whereas its MRP is 29,999.
If you are someone who loves to shoot videos and want to capture the best moments from your Dandiya nights, it would not be unwise to check out the Vivo V20 SE.

It is a tall and slim phone, which packs in a 4100mAh battery and comes with 33W fast charger in the box. The UI is customisable and you get a few preinstalled apps on the device. Vivo has picked the Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 SoC and paired it with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. This chipset isn’t the most powerful in this price segment though. Coming to camera, the V20 SE sports a triple camera setup comprising of a 48-megapixel primary camera, an 8-megapixel ultra-wide angle camera that is also capable of macro photography and a 2-megapixel bokeh camera. The smartphone is priced at Rs 19,990on Amazon whereas its MRP is 24,990.
Another good option in the under Rs 20,000 price segment is the Realme X7 5G. The smartphone boasts of a brand new MediaTek Dimensity 800U processor, and comes with 5G capabilities(dual-SIM, dual-standby) and an eye-catching design. Some of you may not particularly like the pattern on the back of the phone and the massive brand slogan, but that’s only on the ‘Nebula” version, and there’s also a sober ‘Space Silver’ option. The Realme X7 has a 6.4-inch AMOLED screen with an in-display fingerprint sensor. It’s relatively light and compact but still has a 4,310mAh battery that offers amazing runtime. You can use the bundled proprietary 65W fast charger, but this phone actually charges at up to 50W. The screen is good looking and the speakers are also quite good. Games and videos are both enjoyable on this device. The cameras are decent but not too great. Nonetheless, Realme X7 5G is a strong contender in its price segment. The smartphone is priced at Rs 19,999 on Flipkart whereas its MRP is 21,999.
