Once again our list of sub-Rs 75,000 phones is full of sophisticated devices. While the majority of phones from our 75,000 list from last quarter held their positions this month, there were some price declines and new entrants this time around. Time to look at the best smartphones you can currently buy in this budget.
Best phones to buy in India under Rs 75,000
Apple iPhone 12
Since the launch of the iPhone 13, the price of the Apple iPhone 12 has dropped. While the mid-range variant with 128 GB of storage broke the 70,000 mark last quarter, Flipkart is closer to 65,000 this time. The phone is just the right size for one-handed use. You get a 6.1-inch Super Retina XDR OLED display compatible with HDR10 and Dolby Vision. A ceramic glass with oleophobic coating protects it from scratches and stains.
It’s powered by Apple’s previous flagship A14 Bionic chip, which is still powerful enough for any task and should be good enough for a few years. The camera department consists of two 12-megapixel cameras on the rear, with the primary lens offering OIS (optical image stabilization), while the secondary takes ultra-wide-angle shots. The performance in photography and videography is top-notch in various lighting conditions, as you are used to from iPhones. The Apple iPhone 12 was launched with iOS 14 and can be updated to iOS 15.

Apple iPhone 13 Mini
The iPhone 12 isn’t the only Apple phone in this list. In this budget you can comfortably buy the smallest of the latest Apple iPhones. Just like its predecessor, the Apple iPhone 13 Mini is refreshingly compact and one of the smallest smartphones around. And it’s not just about the small size, but the availability of a proper flagship device in this form factor without skipping a key feature is what makes it so special. It’s great to have this choice for those who care as smartphones get bigger every year.
The Apple iPhone 13 Mini is pretty much the same as the iPhone 13 in terms of design, processing power and most features, just smaller. It sports a sharper 5.4-inch Full HD+ Super Retina XDR OLED screen, which in turn is compatible with HDR10 and Dolby Vision. At its heart is the latest A15 Bionic chip, which powers the entire iPhone 13 series. The two 12-megapixel cameras on the back are similar to those on the iPhone 12, just with a different orientation. The output quality is at least as good or maybe even slightly better due to the updated software. Speaking of which, it’s running the latest iOS 15 out of the box, and you can expect more recent OS updates for another half decade.
