This is by far the best-designed smartphone from Xiaomi to come out till date. Priced at Rs 24,999 it's also one of the most expensive Xiaomi smartphones to come to India.

5. OnePlus 3

We asked a question in our headline: Is the
OnePlus 3 still the king? The answer to that is yes. When it comes to a complete smartphone that has performance and affordability on its side, the OnePlus 3 is still the king of smartphones in India under Rs 30,000.

It's nearly clean Android experience, the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon chipset and a standard 6GB RAM makes it a clear winner among all the smartphones that are available in India in this price bracket. The OnePlus 3 delivers exceptional performance, a good metal and glass design and to top it all it's ergonomic. At Rs 27,999, this is the most expensive OnePlus device to ever come to India and among the lot, but every penny spent on this smartphone is worth the price.
