So, if you’re looking for a power-packed smartphone that delivers on all counts, including camera, display, and battery, we have curated a list of some of the best mid-premium segment smartphones!
OnePlus Nord 2:
When OnePlus launched the flagship 9 series smartphones in March, who would have thought the best of OnePlus was yet to come, and that too in the Nord line-up?! The OnePlus Nord 2 is one such handset from the BBK firm that establishes itself as the best mobile under 30000 with its stellar all-around performance.
Featuring a premium design with a glass panel at the back, the Nord 2 is a gem of a smartphone to look at.

Samsung has opted for a 64MP quad-camera setup in this handset which includes a 12MP ultra-wide lens and two macro and depth sensors of 5MP each. While you get well-lit-up photos in daylight, with good exposure levels, vibrant colors, and sharpness, the night mode algorithm does a great job at improving the brightness and clarity of photos in low light. It is powered by a flagship-level 7nm Exynos 9825 processor from Samsung, making it the perfect smartphone for those who like to play games and multitask.
OnePlus Nord CE:
This offering from OnePlus sits perfectly between the Nord 2 and the original Nord, launched last year. The Nord CE has everything that you seek in a powerful midrange at an affordable price.
It has the same 6.43-inch Full HD+ display that’s fitted in all Nord series devices, along with a 90Hz refresh rate. OnePlus is known for providing the brightest displays, and the one in the Nord CE lives up to expectations, reaching a peak brightness of over 800 nits.
OnePlus has equipped the handset with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 750G SoC, a mid-range processor also found on devices like the Mi 10i and Samsung Galaxy A52 5G. The Nord CE, one of the best mobiles under 30,000 INR offers a buttery-smooth experience no matter what task you throw at it.
POCO F3 GT:
POCO introduced the F3 GT for gaming enthusiasts, and the phone became an instant hit. It features two Maglev gaming triggers that offer the handset a distinctive gaming look. Powering the phone is a highly capable MediaTek Dimensity 1200 SoC to beat rival smartphones by far, offering a superior and lag-free performance.
Also, the F3 GT is no slouch when it comes to cameras. The triple camera module that consists of a 64MP primary camera, along with an 8MP ultra-wide and a 2MP macro lens captures stunning photos, keeping colors, exposure, and saturation levels on point. For all your selfie needs, the smartphone has a 16MP shooter.
Oppo Reno 6:
This Oppo smartphone is eye-candy and makes a lasting impression even if you see it from a distance. Hold in hand and you’ll appreciate Oppo’s craftsmanship, giving it an iPhone-like premium design. It features a large 6.43-inch Full HD+ AMOLED screen which makes it an excellent handset to watch movies and TV shows on.
It’s a 90Hz panel that keeps everything that comes on screen smoothly and flawless. Equipped with a potent 64 MP triple-camera setup, the Reno 6, like its other Reno siblings, offers a fantastic photography experience.
The camera system is capable enough of taking some spectacular photos in any kind of light. Also, it’s a winner when it comes to taking selfies.
Realme X7 Max:
The X7 Max is a top offering from Realme in the mid-range segment. In fact, it is arguably one of the best handsets that Realme has ever made. It comes with a sizable 6.43-inch display that stretches from edge to edge with no bezels up front.
Whether you’re watching movies or playing games, the Full HD+ AMOLED panel promises an all-embracing experience. It’s another top-tier phone powered by the MediaTek Dimensity 1200 chipset. In fact, the Density 1200 SoC debuted in India on the X7 Max.
Clubbed with the high-end CPU is up to 12GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage, sufficient to run demanding apps and store all your pictures, videos, and files in one place.
