The Realme Narzo 50A is powered by a MediaTek Helio G85 chipset, which has eight CPU cores with two Arm Cortex-A75 cores (2.0GHz) and six Arm Cortex-A55 cores (1.8GGHz), and a Mali-G52 MC2 GPU.

The Realme Narzo 50A has a 6000mAh battery with 18W fast charging support. Furthermore, it runs on Android 11 with Realme UI 2.0 on top.

Why Choose Realme Narzo 50A?

Good Stuff

The Realme Narzo 50A has a MediaTek Helio G85 chipset. The chipset is one of the best performing chipsets you can get under Rs. 20,000 in late 2021 in Nepal.

The phone also packs a massive 6000 mAh battery with 18W fast charging support. The design of the phone also looks good and has no camera bump.

Bad Stuff

Though the performance is great, the display, however, is only of 720p resolution. It also does not have an ultrawide angle camera.

Summary

The Realme Narzo 50A is a great phone for under Rs. 20,000 in Nepal. It is equipped with the Helio G85 chipset, which is a great performing SoC in this price range.

However, the G85 does not provide a major boost over the G80. They’re both powered by the same CPU and GPU. The GPU has been modestly boosted to 1GHz from 950MHz in the G85, which is the only noticeable change.

Moreover, the display resolution is just HD+, and there is no ultrawide angle camera. As a result, despite having a G85 chipset, it is ranked fifth on our list.

Why Choose Poco M3?

Good Stuff

Poco M3 has an FHD+ display and is available with up to 128GB of storage.

Poco M3 is equipped with Snapdragon 662 chipset. It is more power-efficient than the Helio G80 which results in less heat.

Unlike the Helio G80, Snapdragon 662 supports UFS 2.1 and UFS 2.2. Therefore, system booting, application loading, and switching will be faster in the Poco M3.

This also has a dual speaker and a massive 6000mAh battery with support for 18W fast charging and reverse charging.

Bad Stuff

Poco M3 does not have an ultra-wide-angle camera. For gaming, Poco M2 Reloaded’s Helio G80 is slightly better than this.

Summary

In terms of raw power, Poco M2’s Helio G80 may seem better than the Snapdragon 662 but the Poco M3 has a UFS storage which makes it much faster than the eMMC storage used in the Poco M2 Reloaded.

In real-life usage though, the difference between the two is very small.

Poco M3 is higher on the list than the Poco M2 Reloaded because of its more efficient chipset, faster storage, dual speaker, and bigger battery.

#2. Redmi 9 Power

Taking the 2nd position on our list of the best phones under Rs. 20000 is the Redmi 9 Power.

Good Stuff

This also has the same good stuff as the Poco M3. It also has an FHD+ display, fast UFS storage, a huge 6000mAh battery, support for 18W fast charging, and 2.5W reverse charging. Not to forget, it also gets the efficient Snapdragon 662 chipset.

On top of that, it also has an ultrawide angle camera, which the Poco M3 lacks.

Bad Stuff

For gaming, Poco M2 Reloaded’s Helio G80 is slightly better than this. The 128GB variant of Redmi 9 Power also costs more than Rs. 20,000, which was not the case with Poco M3.

Summary

Redmi 9 Power is almost the same as the Poco M3. The only differences are the design and an extra ultrawide camera on the Redmi 9 Power.

All three phones—Redmi 9 Power, Poco M3, and Poco M2 Reloaded—are very similar in terms of features and specifications.

Between these phones, I chose Redmi 9 Power because of a more efficient chipset, faster storage, dual speaker, and bigger battery compared to the Poco M2 Reloaded; and the inclusion of an extra ultra-wide-angle camera compared to the Poco M3.

Likewise, the camera performance of the device is also satisfactory.

Under moderate usage, the massive 6000mAh battery will power this device for one and a half days easily.

Honourable Mentions

The Tecno Spark 7 Pro also deserves to be on the list of the best mobiles under Rs. 20000. It comes with a MediaTek Helio G80 chipset, which is one of the best chipsets you can find in this price range in 2021. And, it also comes with 6GB RAM, which is rare at this price. So, you can expect the performance of this phone to be good.

The display of the Spark 7 Pro also supports a 90Hz refresh rate instead of the typical 60Hz panel. And, it comes with a 5000mAh battery, which should be enough for a day. However, the display resolution is just HD+ and the phone is still using an outdated micro USB port. Though it has a 48MP camera with two additional cameras, we are not sure how would it perform.

Usually, this type of phone compromises in the camera department, therefore, we cannot be optimistic about it. Another thing to consider is the limited number of Tecno service centers in Nepal.

Thoughts on Best Mobiles Under 20000 in Nepal

So, these are our picks for the best mobile phones under 20000 in Nepal. The term “best phone” has a different meaning to everyone. It depends upon the way we use it and what our priorities are.

Some may play more games whereas others may watch more videos. So, everyone has their own needs depending on their usage.

Among all of these phones, Poco M2 Reloaded provides you the most value and bang for the buck. Likewise, Redmi 9 Power and Samsung Galaxy F22 are slightly better than the M2 Reloaded in terms of the design and overall package.

So, if I had to pick one phone, it would be the Samsung Galaxy F22 because it’s the best overall. It has good performance, better design, better cameras, a 90Hz Super AMOLED screen, and a good battery.
