Last year, it was Xiaomi who put Google’s Android One program back on track with Mi A1. Since then several brands came up with their own Android One smartphones in the market, especially in the budget segment.
In this post, we are going to look at the best Android One smartphones under 15000. One of the key reasons as to why Android One smartphones have become popular is because of the pure stock Android, regular security patches and major updates which are exclusively available to Pixel smartphones only.
For instance, the Mi A1 smartphone from Xiaomi has started getting Android Pie (v 9.0) update which is impressive given the fact that the smartphone was launched last year running on Android Nougat (v 7.1.2). In contrast, if you look at other smartphones in the same price segment, you won’t find many smartphones getting major Android updates and regular security patches.
So, without further ado, here are the top 5 best Android One smartphones under 15000:-
#1. Xiaomi Mi A2
The Xiaomi Mi A1 was one of Xiaomi’s best-selling smartphones in 2017. This year, the company introduced its successor; the Mi A2. In comparison to the Mi A1, the Mi A2 comes with a lot of new changes which includes a massive screen having full HD+ resolution.
Apart from the bigger screen, the Mi A2 also houses a powerful Snapdragon 660 chipset, in fact, the Mi A2 is only Android One smartphone available under 15K featuring the Snapdragon 660. The 660 chipset is coupled with 4/6 Gigs of RAM, 64/ 128 Gigs of storage, and for handling gaming, you get the Adreno 512 GPU. High-end games like PUBG, Asphalt 8, NOVA 3 can be played on this device without facing any lags or frame drops.
Coming to the camera section, the rear of the Mi A2 device features a 12 MP + 20 MP dual-camera setup, whereas in the front you get a 20 MP single camera. When it comes to taking snaps, without a doubt the Mi A2 is one of the best camera smartphones under 20K segment. Both the front and the rear takes some outstanding photos. The rear camera excels during low-lighting conditions, which is excellent.
Like its predecessor, the Mi A2 also features the same 3010 mAh battery, which can easily last one full day on a single charge. Apart from the fingerprint sensor, the Mi A2 also have face unlock feature. Anyways, one of the cons of the device is the lack of 3.5 mm audio jack and a microSD card slot which is a setback considering the fact last year’s Mi A1 had all the features.
Overall, at the given price range, the Mi A2 is the best Android One smartphone to buy under 15K.
