Do you do expect more from your phone? More speed, more multitasking, more agility? You need a performance phone. But let me guess, you don’t want to spend more money. That’s true, right? So let’s look at some performance phones that don’t challenge your budget – the (under) 20k segment.

I have handpicked these on the basis of their performance factors – the trio of RAM, processor and clock speed. Further, I’ll also list some in-depth factors that the surface features won’t tell you about. Let’s have a look at these 6 best options!

1. Gionee A1

Quick Specs

RAM 4 GB
Processor MediaTek MT6755 Helio P10 Octa Core
Clock Speed 2GHZ
Battery 4010 mAh Li-ion Polymer
Screen Size 5.5 inch

 

Although not so good-looking, the 4 GB of RAM and MediaTek Helio P10 processor is one of the best performance phones to have below 20k. Out of the 8 cores, 4 can touch the 2 GHz mark and the rest 4 run at 1 GHz. The 5.5-inch screen seems fine with impressive 4010 mAh battery. The only put off is that Helio P10 doesn’t support big.LITTLE technology that enables the chipset to juggle between processor cores for heavy and light tasks. Else, the phone sure looks like a budget superbike on paper. The phone is available on Amazon at a price of Rs. 16,499.

2. Sony Xperia XA 1

Quick Specs

RAM 3 GB
Processor MediaTek Helio P20 64-bit Octa Core
Clock Speed 2.3 GHz
Battery 2300 mAh Li-ion Polymer
Screen Size 5 inch

 

This sleek beauty from Sony takes fast to soaring levels with 2.3 GHz clock speed, thanks to Helio P20 from MediaTek. The processor also supports a GPU clock speed of 900 MHz which means accelerated graphics; expect a really good gaming experience. 3 GB RAM sits just fine with the processor but the 2300 mAh battery is a big letdown. I like the overall design with the 5-inch display. The phone is sure to steal attention like anything. This is available on Amazon for Rs. 19.489.

3. Honor 8

Quick Specs

RAM 4 GB
Processor Hisilicon Kirin 950 Octa Core
Clock Speed 2.3 GHz
Battery 3000 mAh Li-ion Polymer
Screen Size 5.2 inch

 

Honor 8 has the same 4 GB RAM that every other phone has in this segment but the Hisilicon Kirin 950 processor is the key here. It gives a head-to-head competition to Snapdragon 820 and can clock up to a staggering 2.4 GHz. The well-suited 3000 mAh makes this 5.2incher a balanced combination of all sorts. The design looks okay with the rear 12MP + 12MP camera but yes, I’ll definitely buy this for the speed. The phone is available in the market for Rs. 19,500.

4. Samsung Galaxy On

Via Samsung

Quick Specs

RAM 4 GB
Processor MediaTek MTK6757V/WL Octa Core
Clock Speed 2.39 GHz
Battery 3300 mAh Li-ion Polymer
Screen Size 5.7 inch

 

This is by far the best Galaxy model from Samsung in this price range. It has the MediaTek MTK6757 that is fit for a speedy phone of this size. The clock speed is different for the two sets of 4-cored processors – 1.69 and 2.39 respectively. You can simply say that this phone is going to give you a nice entertainment experience. Although, 3300 mAh is a tad bit on the down side of things. You can buy it for around Rs. 17,000.

5. Moto G5 Plus

Quick Specs

RAM 4 GB
Processor Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 Processor Octa Core
Clock Speed 2 GHz
Battery 3000 mAh Li-ion Polymer
Screen Size 5.2 inch

 

The Moto G series has been a step ahead of others since their introduction; same is the case with Moto G5 Plus that’s by far the best combination of numbers with 4 GB RAM and Snapdragon 625 at 2 GHz. It won’t be a battery drainer and gives competition to Xperia in terms of looks. It’ll save you a few bucks while providing almost the same performance to the list-toppers. It is available for a price of Rs. 15,999. There is also a 3GB version available if you wish to save another thousand bucks.

6. Lenovo Z2 Plus

Via Lenovo

Quick Specs

RAM 3 GB
Processor Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 Processor Quad Core
Clock Speed 2.15 GHz
Battery 3500 mAh Li-ion Polymer
Screen Size 5 inch

 

Lenovo nails this mid-range smartphone with the coveted Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 Processor Quad Core flying at 2.15 GHz; it’s the first thing that shines in its specs. The 3500 mAh battery will be a great match as the processor is energy-efficient, promising more up-time. There’s no doubt about its performance with the 3GB RAM which will be sufficient for all kinds of heavy and light tasks. It is available for Rs. 12,499. Don’t expect the phone to last much long but all-in-all; it’s a cheap fix for your performance needs!
