Best Phone under 40000 in India

The modern world is evolving fast, with new technological advancements day by day. If we don’t equip ourselves with the latest technology, both we and our devices become outdated. 15 years ago, one might have never even heard of the term ‘smartphone’. But in recent times, the number of people who use smartphones has enormously increased

A smartphone is not a luxury anymore, it is a necessity. Companies fiercely compete with each other and continue to release a wide range of smartphones with new, improved features at varying prices so customers with different budgets and different needs can be effectively garnered. Despite budget phones (phones whose cost ranges between 5000 Rs and 10000 Rs) are all the rage, high-end phones (phones whose cost ranges between 20000 Rs and 40000 Rs) are always in demand. 

Such premium phones score way higher than budget phones in terms of performance, storage and ease of usage, amongst many others. They are best suited for applications which are energy-guzzling, storage-intensive and require a lot of performance and speed.

Hence, they are the best phones to buy if one is into gaming or uses one’s phone extensively for professional/ business purposes. This article covers some of the best phones under 40000 and the user can choose whichever seems to be the best smartphone under 40000, according to him/her.

Best Phone under 40000 in India [Reviews 2020]

1. Best Overall: OnePlus 8

OnePlus 8 (Glacial Green 6GB RAM+128GB Storage)
Slim slotsDual (Nano-SIM, dual standby)
Processor2.86 GHz, Octa-core
ChipsetQualcomm Snapdragon 865
Display6.55 inch, 1080p Fluid AMOLED
Camera16 MP front camera, 48 MP rear camera
Storage128GB, 6GB RAM
OSAndroid 10
Connectivity3G, 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth
Battery4300 mAh
PortsHeadphone jack, USB Type-C port

OnePlus 8 is an apt successor to OnePlus 7T, which was released a few years ago. Though its design hasn’t undergone a radical change, nevertheless, there is a subtle and discernible change for the better.

Despite having a large display size, it is very easy to hold because of its slim and sleek design. It shows excellent build quality, which stems from its curved-edge front and sandwiched back glass. 

It also has a vibrant display that supports HD+, reading mode and brightens colours when videos are being played.  It has an inbuilt fingerprint sensor, which detects one’s fingerprint swiftly and accurately. 

Its performance is impressive, due to top-notch hardware. The heat management systems are efficiently designed since the phone does not get overheated, despite having been used for a long time.

It is an excellent choice for gaming, especially when it comes to playing energy-guzzling, performance-intensive games like PUBG and Fortnite. It is also an amazing choice for people, who prefer to watch movies and web series extensively on their phones. 

Since it comes with a 6 GB RAM and 128 GB internal storage, its storage cannot be expanded. Though it uses Android 10, it predominantly relies on OxygenOS, which is an operating system unique to OnePlus. OnePlus 8 comes equipped with the latest, improved version of OxygenOS.

It also offers free cloud storage to users who create an OnePlus account and offers disruption-free multitasking features, making it a strong contender for the position of best smartphone under 40000 in India. 

The cameras are good but could have been improvised. Low-light photos are of decent quality but the quality of videos shot in low-light could be improved. 

It has a reasonable big battery, whose capacity is 4300 mAh. It usually lasts for a day and a half after being fully charged, without any intermediate recharge. On being subjected to a battery loop test, it averaged 22 hours. Further, the rate of charging has also been improved enormously, due to the introduction of the Warp Charge 30T charger. 

  • Impeccable software and performance
  • Good quality of build
  • Vibrant display
  • Wireless charging not available
  • Video quality is less at low-light

2. Best Camera: Oppo Reno 2

OPPO Reno2 Z (Luminous Black, 8GB RAM, 256GB Storage) with No Cost EMI/Additional Exchange Offers
Slim slotsHybrid Dual (Nano-SIM, dual standby)
Processor2.2GHz, Octa-core
ChipsetQualcomm Snapdragon 730G
Display6.5 inch, 1080p AMOLED
Camera16 MP front camera, 48 MP rear camera
Storage128/256GB expandable up to 512GB, 8GB RAM
OSAndroid v 9.0(Pie)
Connectivity3G, 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth
Battery4000 mAh
PortsHeadphone jack, USB Type-C port

Oppo Reno 2 is equipped with Qualcomm Snapdragon 730G and is one of the very few smartphones that have been equipped with this version of Snapdragon processor. Luckily its storage is expandable due to its hybrid dual-sim slot. Because of its high processing speed, it is capable of multitasking with ease, without any hiccups. 

It has an 8 GB RAM, which makes it faster than most phones up for sale. Hence one can launch multiple apps at the same time, without killing apps which are running in the background. It doesn’t heat up quickly.

One can go on playing energy-guzzling, performance-intensive games without worrying about risks of overheating. It shows improved graphics and is a good choice for people who use their phones intensively for gaming and watching videos. It has a decent battery life of 4000 mAh but averaged only 5 hours in the battery loop test. 

Oppo is known for its high-quality mobile cameras and the Reno 2 is no exception. It demonstrates sound camera-centric design with a 48 MP rear camera and a depth sensor of 2 MP. It also has a 13 MP front camera which makes it a great choice for selfie addicts and amateur photographers.

It also has quick shortcuts for the user, to easily magnify (zoom) the pictures captured on his/ her camera. Pictures captured on this phone are AI-enabled, hence they might seem unreal. That is, they might not seem to be actually captured on a phone camera and might look like having been captured on a digital camera.

The photos taken in the daylight show great detail without much noise and interference from sunlight. It also does a good job and in capturing pictures in low-light conditions. Though the tone of the colour of the image changes when one captures pictures with night mode enabled, the grains are not clearly visible, even upon zooming. 

Further, it is also accompanied by a 20W charger so that the phone charges faster, even after being completely discharged and drained. It also comes with avant-garde features like SoundFocus, which impart additional audio quality to the sounds and videos captured on one’s phone.

Hence if someone is looking for a phone that lives up to gaming standards and is also an amateur photographer or videographer, one can buy Oppo Reno 2 as its versatile camera and audio are its USP’s. 

  • Good battery life
  • Decent performance
  • Good quality daylight camera
  • excessive bloatware
  • prone to smudging often

3. Best for Gaming: OnePlus 7T

OnePlus 7T Glacier Blue (8GB RAM+256GB Storage)
Slim slotsDual (Nano-SIM, dual standby)
Processor2.96Ghz, Octa-core 
ChipsetQualcomm Snapdragon 855+
Display6.55 inch, 1080p AMOLED
Camera16 MP front camera, 48 MP rear camera
Storage128 and 256GB, 8GB RAM
OSOxygenOS based on Android 10
Connectivity3G, 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, NFC
Battery3800 mAh
PortsHeadphone jack, USB Type-C port

Most companies release newer versions of their products frequently, just to establish a longer presence in the market. However, the so-called ‘newer versions’ are merely rip-offs of their predecessors. However, in the case of OnePlus 7T, it’s anything but that. 

OnePlus 7T retains the sleek design of its predecessors but has also improvised a lot on its build and ease of usage. The corners of the screen are rounded and the borders are narrow, so the display is restricted. It has a noticeable bump at the back, which accommodates three camera lenses inside.

Further, the rear seems to smudge prone and it does not rest flat on the surface. This is because the rear has a bump and hence it is more prone to falling off the surface on which it rests. 

The phone is made of metal and glass (frosted) which gives a premium look and feel. It weighs 190g and is fairly heavy for a smartphone of its price. The power and volume buttons are on the left but still, it’s fairly easy to handle.

It does not have a headphone jack, hence users are forced to buy wireless headphones, which cost way higher than wired headphones. It does not have an IP rating hence we do not know about the extent of its dust resistance or water resistance. 

It has a Snapdragon octa-core processor, out of which one of the cores is slightly faster than the others. Its chipset is 15 per cent faster than generic Snapdragon chipsets. Similar to its predecessors, it has 8 GB RAM and internal storage of 128 GB or 256 GB, depending on the variant we want to purchase. The phone does not support external SD cards hence it’s not possible to expand its memory. 

The display has a bigger length, with decent aspect ratio and high resolution. Its refresh rate is 90 Hz and the display supports HDR10+. Therefore, high-quality videos can be streamed on this phone. It also supports high-res visuals and graphics hence it is a good choice for gaming. If some features are tweaked, this phone might even become the best dual sim phone under 40000. 

Battery capacity has increased to 3800 mAh. It comes with a Warp Charge 30T Standard charger, which makes charging easier and faster than ever. If one is looking for a phone that shows great performance and has good value for money, one can choose OnePlus 7T

  • Impeccable display and good audio systems
  • Exceptional overall performance
  • Great value for money
  • Quality of low-light videos not at par
  • Not water-proof or dust-proof

4. Best Selfie Camera: Vivo V17

Vivo V17 (Midnight Ocean, 8GB RAM, 128GB Storage)
Slim slotsSingle or Dual (Nano-SIM, dual standby)
Processor2.0Ghz, Octa-core 
ChipsetQualcomm Snapdragon 675
Display6.44 inch, 1080p Super AMOLED
Camera32 MP front camera, 48 MP rear camera
Storage128/256GB expandable up to 512GB, 8GB RAM
OSFuntouch OS 9.2 on Android 9.
Connectivity3G, 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, NFC
Battery4500 mAh
PortsHeadphone jack, USB Type-C port

With slim bezels and small camera holes, the Vivo V17 looks sleek, despite being packed with a quad-camera. Unlike other Vivo phones which had dual pop- up cameras, this has a hole-punch camera. Despite its hardware, it is very light and easy to handle since it weighs only 176 g. 

However, it is powered by Snapdragon 675 SoC, instead of higher versions of the processor. Though this doesn’t make the phone slow, it makes us feel that the quality of the processor could be improved for the amount of money paid to purchase the phone. 

It has 8 GB RAM and 128 GB storage, which can be expanded by inserting microSD cards in their appropriate slots. This phone is also accompanied by a Widevine L1 certificate, so HD videos and content with higher resolutions can be streamed on the phone with ease. This makes it a great choice for people who extensively stream and watch content on their phones, especially ones who use Netflix and Amazon Prime.

It runs on Funtouch OS, accompanied by Android 9.0. The phone’s UI is significantly different from the UI found commonly on Android phones, hence users who are used to standard Android UI may have difficulty in adjusting to this phone’s UI.

Further, it also comes with pre-installed and often unnecessary bloatware, which decreases the phone’s performance and the user is also spammed with a lot of notifications coming from pre-installed, unnecessary apps.  

Despite having only a Snapdragon 675 processor, this phone is highly efficient in multitasking. When tested by using performance-intensive applications, it does not show unusual lag and does not flicker or crash midway.

However, the phone tends to heat up faster. When an energy-intensive game is played on this phone, the phone shifts the gameplay to ‘High’ (ie) ‘High’ is the preset, default value. Due to its relatively slow processor, it is prone to overheat when used for a long period of time. 

It is equipped with a 4500 mAh battery which lasts for one and a half days before draining out completely. On the battery loop test, it lasted for almost 17 hours. It is also accompanied by an 18 W charger, hence it charges faster than other Vivo phones. If one is looking for a phone that can multitask and is also equipped with a good camera, the Vivo V17 is a good choice.

  • Brilliant display
  • Good battery
  • Decent low-light camera
  • Unnecessary bloatware
  • Expensive 

5. Best for Social Media: Realme X2 Pro

Realme X2 Pro (Neptune Blue, 128 GB) (8 GB RAM)
Slim slotsDual (Nano-SIM, dual standby)
ProcessorOcta-core 2.96 GHz
ChipsetQualcomm Snapdragon 855+
Display6.5 inch, 1080p AMOLED
Camera16 MP front camera, 64 MP rear camera
Storage64,128,256GB and  6, 8, 12 GB RAM
OSAndroid v9.0(Pie)
Connectivity3G, 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, NFC
Battery4000 mAh
PortsHeadphone jack, USB Type-C port

Realme seems to have given up using polycarbonate for designing their phones as Realme X2 comes with an Aluminium body, with Gorilla Glass on the front. Despite the glass being prone to frequent smudging, its durable design, sleek finish and improved ease of usage make it a viable choice for users who are particular about a phone’s ease of handling. 

Realme phones are known for their high display quality and this phone is no exception. It has a 6.5-inch screen size and the display is acute, with good viewing angles and colours show good saturation and contrast. The rear camera module is vertically arranged hence there is a perceptible bump at the back of the phone. However, it rests well on flat surfaces and is not prone to falling off on its own from wherever it has been kept. 

Amounting to a whopping 200 g, the phone’s weight is luckily distributed in a uniform manner so that the user does not find the phone unwieldy. It runs on a Snapdragon 855 SoC processor and has high speed and commendable multitasking abilities.

More than one app can be used at a time, without having the need to kill other apps that might be running in the background. Further, it is powered by ColorOS 6.1 and runs on Android 9 hence it has new and improved features like dark mode and the Google Wellbeing app.

It has a decent battery life since it is powered by a 4000 mAh battery. It performed well on the HD loop test, averaging about 15 hours with the screen set at 90 GHz. It lasts for a day and a half before it drains out its fully charged battery.

Further, its charging features are also very impressive. It is accompanied by a SuperVOOC charger and charged from zero to full capacity in just half an hour, making it the phone with the highest rate of charging. 

 When the usage ranges between limited to moderate, it performs very well and does not heat up. However, when one uses it for purposes with high-performance demands (like gaming, for instance), it performs well but is prone to overheating and gets warmed up in a short span of time.

However, with its high-end processor, it is extremely efficient in dealing with performance-intensive applications without any glitch. If one is looking for a phone that charges fast and is backed by a high-end processor, Realme X2 Pro is an apt choice. If its tendency to overheat is minimized, this will become a good contender of the best smartphone from 30000 to 40000 position. 

  • Good for gaming
  • Fast charging, with decent battery life
  • Good display
  • Prone to overheating
  • Low-light video quality not at par

6. High-End Samsung Smartphone: Samsung Galaxy A80

Samsung Galaxy A80 (Phantom Black, 8GB RAM, 128GB Storage)
Slim slotsSingle or Dual (Nano-SIM, dual standby)
Processor2.2GHz, Octa-core
ChipsetQualcomm Snapdragon 730
Display6.7 inch, 1080p AMOLED
CameraNo front camera, 48 MP rear camera
Storage128GB, 8 GB RAM
OSAndroid 9.0(Pie)
Connectivity3G, 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, NFC
Battery3700 mAh
PortsHeadphone jack, USB Type-C port

Launched in the latter half of 2019, Samsung Galaxy A80 took the whole mobile-buying populace by storm. It comes with impressive specifications, hence let us evaluate whether it is worthy of its price tag.

It is accompanied by a Snapdragon 740 processor, which is one of the fastest and most efficient processors designed so far. It has a 48 MP rear camera and clicks high quality, high-resolution pictures, irrespective of whether the pictures are shot in daylight or at night. 

It has dual- sim slots and both support only nano- sims. It is powered by One UI on top of Android 9.0. It has a 6.7 inch HD Super AMOLED display, with high resolution and sufficient aspect ratio. Its display is infinite since it does not have any bezels or notches on any side. 

It has 8 GB RAM and 128 GB inbuilt storage, which cannot be expanded by inserting microSD cards. When it comes to the camera, its features are impressive. Equipped with a 48 MP rear camera, it also has an 8 MP wide-angle lens and a 5 MP depth sensor. Further, it also has a 3D depth camera and IR sensors.

But the biggest disappointment one would have with Samsung Galaxy A80 is that it does not have a front camera. For reasons unknown, the makers have decided not to add a selfie camera at the front. This doesn’t seem to be a wise decision because even phones with slower processors and mediocre-quality rear cameras have front cameras. 

It has a decent battery life, with a battery capacity of 3700 mAh. Samsung seems to have downgraded the battery capacity of this phone because even its predecessors had higher battery capacities. However, it makes up for its reduced battery capacity by having a high charging rate.

Its body is made of glass, which is sturdy but might break if one is negligent. It comes in 3 colours- Angel Gold, Phantom Black and Ghost White. The user can choose whichever colour he/ she likes since the design remains the same throughout, irrespective of the colour of the model. 

If one is an amateur photographer, looking for a phone with high processing capacity and would like solid brand reliability, one can choose Samsung Galaxy A80

  • Sleek, user-friendly design
  • The vivid display and quality audio systems
  • Advanced processor
  • Does not have a front camera
  • Storage is not expandable

7. Best Storage: LG V40

LG V40 ThinQ (Blue, 6GB RAM, 128GB Storage)
Slim slotsDual (Nano-SIM, dual standby)
Processor2.8GHz, Octa-core
ChipsetQualcomm Snapdragon 845
Display6.4 inch, 1440p P-OLED
Camera8 MP front camera, 12 MP rear camera
Storage64 and 128GB expandable up to 512GB, 6 GB RAM
OSAndroid 8.1
Connectivity3G, 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, NFC
Battery3300 mAh
PortsHeadphone jack, USB Type-C port

The LG V40 possesses premium design and sleek build. It has a matte finish and does not get smudged easily, even if one has been using it for a long time. The phone looks pretty slick and is actually too smooth to be gripped firmly and prone to slip off our palms. 

The display is amply wide, which makes it easy for people who have extensive screen- time. It  is especially beneficial for those who watch and stream a lot of content on their phones and use their phones extensively for browsing/ reading purposes.

However, the display seems too wide to reach the buttons on the side of the phone, especially if one is using only one hand throughout for operating the phone. It uses an OLED panel, which is responsible for its good saturation, vivid contrasts and deep colour tones. It is powered with Snapdragon 845 SoC, making it one of the fastest phones available in the market.

LG has squeezed 2 cameras and an earpiece at the rear notch without creating a wide protruding bump at the back of the phone. This way the phone is flat, even when it is laced with its screen facing upwards.

It has 6 GB RAM and internal storage of 128 GB. Its internal storage can be easily expanded even up to a whopping 2 TB if one were to insert a microSD card. However, it does not have an SD card slot and its memory can be expanded only when adding an SD card to its vacant sim slot, which cannot happen if the user wants to use both the sim slots for calling purposes only.  

Despite being equipped with a cutting-edge processor, LG V40 supports only Android 8.1 OS, which is almost outdated. It has decent battery life. One can use it for high-performance, energy-guzzling applications but the phone is prone to overheating. The 3 rear cameras have 40 MP, but none of them has autofocus.

Still, they function seamlessly in both daylight and low-light conditions. It has decent audio which can get fairly loud enough if one wants to experience the feel of using a stereo. If one wants to buy a phone with a great camera and excellent display, coupled with fast processors, one can give LG V40 a shot. 

  • High-quality design and excellent build
  • Highly equipped OS
  • Multi-functional cameras
  • Prone to overheating
  • Old Android version

8. Best iPhone: Apple iPhone 8

Apple iPhone 8 (Silver, 256GB)
Slim slotsSingle Nano SIM
Processor2.39GHz, Hexa core
ChipsetApple A11 Bionic
Display4.7inch 750 x 1334 pixels
Camera7 MP front, 12 MP rear with OIS
Storage64/256GB, 2 GB RAM 
Connectivity4G LTE, GSM, CDMA, Wi-Fi 
Battery1821 mAh
PortsHeadphone jack, USB Type-C port

Unlike its predecessors, who had polycarbonate or glass-metal bodies, Apple iPhone 8 is completely made of glass. Still, it is durable, as claimed by the manufacturer. It weighs only 148 g, which is pretty light for a phone which has a lot of hardware.

Due to its sleek design and less weight, is very easy to hold and handle, even with one hand. Since its body is fully made of glass, it offers sufficient friction when held and handled. This way, one can maintain a strong grip on the phone and it would not slip out of their hands. 

It comes with a 5 W charging cable, compatible for USB type-A ports. Hence, this USB cable cannot be used for other Apple products like MacBooks. The phone’s display is as vibrant as other Apple flagship models

It has high resolution and ample display size. So users can use this phone for watching and streaming high-quality videos for long hours and can also use it for browsing and reading, without experiencing strain in their eyes.  It has OLED and HDR support and also has True Tone features.

A true Tone is basically a group of sensors embedded on the phone. They detect the light in the phone’s surroundings, modify the white display balance to match with the light around us. This significantly reduces blue light emission, thereby protecting our eyes. 

The previous versions of Apple were powered by Apple A10 Fusion, which was a quad-core processor. However, Apple has tweaked its processor in Apple iPhone 8, by replacing the old processor with Apple A11 Bionic, which is a 6-core processor. Further, all six cores can be run at the same time. This makes Apple iPhone 8 faster than most phones in the market. 

It is powered by iOS 10, which is Apple’s own operating systems software. Ordinary, day-to-day tasks can be performed smoothly, without any lag or disruption. Further, Apple has also introduced the QuickStart feature, with this phone.

One just needs to place one’s new iPhone next to another Apple device and after ‘pairing’ takes place, all the data from the other device is transferred to one’s phone, right from data within the device to the device’s password. One can choose to retain the apps and stuff stored in cloud storage from the previous device or can set up this phone as ‘new’.

  • Wireless charging
  • Guaranteed, frequent software updates
  • Amazing overall performance
  • No improvement in design
  • Some apps not suitable for use in India

9. Value for Money: Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus

Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus (Midnight Black, 6GB RAM, 64GB Storage)

PortsHeadphone jack, USB Type-C port

Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus lives up to the brand reliability of Samsung. Its highlight is its display. The screen is pretty large and the display supports high resolution, colour saturation and colour tone.

However, owing to its large screen and premium display, it is great for watching and streaming high-quality videos. One does not feel much strain in their eyes and can use the phone for long periods of time. 

The phone is designed with a blend of glass and metal, giving it a smooth finish and elite look and feel. Its body is made of durable glass and is not very prone to smudging. Further, it does not have much of a bezel hence one might accidentally touch the phone’s screen while handling the corners of the phone.

As its rear is made of glass, it is equipped with wireless charging facilities. Additionally, one can also transfer money from this device to another Samsung device through Samsung Pay, without any contact between the two. 

It has a 6.2-inch display powered by Super AMOLED and has a decent aspect ratio. This also supports HDR. It also has a Bixby command which can be compared to Apple’s Siri or Google Assistant. One can send voice commands by pressing the Bixby button and one can set alarms, reminders, send Whatsapp messages, surf the web and a lot more!

Luckily, Samsung has retained the 3.5 mm headphone jack throughout, hence users can use ordinary earphones instead of having to scout for and buy wireless headphones, which are very expensive.

It has a dual nano- sim slot and an SD card can be inserted in the microSD card slot to expand the storage up to 400 GB. The fingerprint sensors have been improvised, since they are more accurate and can be accessed easily, unlike before. It also has decent battery life. 

For processors, Samsung is using its own Exynos 9810. The phone comes with the octa-core version of the above processor. This makes it faster than other Samsung phones and the processor speed is comparable with the speed of the latest Snapdragon processor.
