There are a bunch of mid-range smartphones out there in the market. It is often difficult to choose one or to distinguish the best one. So, here we have sorted out a list of the best smartphones under Rs.40000 in Nepal.
We are starting our list with Samsung Galaxy A52. One of the best aspects of this phone is its reliable camera. It has got better sharpness, dynamic range, and details. Along with that its Super AMOLED screen quality is also top-notch which we all expect from Samsung-made panels.
Moreover, Galaxy A52 is equipped with a Snapdragon 720G chip which is a reliable chip for multitasking and UI optimization.
Realme 9 pro plusis one of the best mid-range phones in Nepal under Rs.40000. This phone costs around Rs.42000 in Nepal but you can get a flat Rs.1000 off if you buy it from Hukut Store.
Realme had heavily advertised the cameras of Realme 9 pro plus so it was no surprise that we can see punchier colors and good HDR processing in its photos. Moreover, this camera supports OIS so even at night time, it produces sharp and detailed images.
Likewise, the AMOLED display of Realme 9 pro plus is also really good but unlike Note 11 pro 5G, it has a refresh rate up to 90Hz only. Nowadays, 120Hz refresh rate has become common among the mid-range phones so Realme also could have given a 90Hz refresh rate screen.
Regardless, the powerful Dimensity 920 chipset is capable of giving good performance for day-to-day usage as well as gaming experience.
If you are looking for a vibrant, contrast-rich AMOLED screen for media consumption then you should definitely check theXiaomi Note 11 pro. Although this phone was released a year ago, it still is popular in the market.
The big 6.67 inches Super AMOLED screen with a 120Hz refresh rate is surely a go for this phone. It is also a DCI-P3 and HDR10 certified so, one can enjoy the contents of YouTube, Netflix, and Tik Tok to the fullest.
The design of Note 10 pro is premium as well. You get a glass sandwich built with IP53 dust and water-resistant. It is equipped with a Snapdragon 732G chipset, which is more than reliable for many.
TheOnePlus Nord CE litewas launched recently in Nepal by OnePlus. OnePlus as always has delivered its clean software experience in Nord CE lite as well. Although it is a mid-range phone unlike other brands there are no third-party bloatware apps in Nord CE lite. On top of that, it is provided with Android 12-based Oxygen OS which still hasn’t been provided in Nord CE 2 which is more expensive than CE lite.
Equipped with a Snapdragon 695 chip, the software performance is also good for this phone and its 120Hz refresh rate makes browsing smoother. But the cameras for this phone are pretty average. The daytime images are oversaturated and in portraits the skin tone is inconsistent. But the post-processing can be made better by OnePlus.
Like Nord CE lite,Samsung Galaxy M33also comes with Android 12 with 2 years of software updates and 4 years of security patches which is appreciable for a mid-range phone.
It is equipped with Exynos 1280 chipset which is a powerful chip. Provided the lighting conditions are good, Galaxy M33 clicks good photos. The colors, dynamic range, and HDR processing are all balanced in this phone. Compared to Nord CE lite, it clicks better photos.
The downside of this phone is its TFT display because Samsung is well known for providing AMOLED display. So, the display quality of the Galaxy M33 is way average. Instead of going with 120Hz TFT, it’d have been way better if Samsung provided an AMOLED screen with 90Hz.
Although the display is average, it has excellent battery life. Equipped with a huge 6000mAh it can easily provide backup for 2 days. No charger is provided in the box so a compatible charger of 25W gets the job done which you need to buy yourself.
