So last week we did a cap off of our top five best budget smartphones under 10, 000 pesos. Now we’re gon na do the same thing, but with a 20, 000 peso and below price bracket. There are a lot of good phones in this price segment, so we made sure to include some truly great ones in this list. Just in case you haven’t already bought the phone and without further ado here are top 5 best smartphones under 20 000 pesos. Once again, please note that this is in no particular order. Number one: the huawei nova 7 se at 17999, pesos, just like other nova smartphones in the past, the device comes packing powerful hardware, new features and, more importantly, 5g connectivity, future proofing it as local operators roll out 5g services. I know we sound like a broken record, but huawei sure knows how to make good looking phones. This particular one comes in a variety of colors, but we got ours in space silver. The camera module is stacked vertically and is tucked to one side. The fingerprint scanner is embedded on the side, pulling double duty as the power button. The phone sports a 6.5 inch full hd plus lcd display with a punch hole notch on the upper left for the 16 megapixel selfie camera. The phone supports super night selfie for those nights out in the town when the world is safer again, no fast, refresh rate here, the phone uses a plain 60hz refresh rate panel on the upside huawei advertises the display of the phone as covering 96 of the ntsc Color gamut, we have four cameras headlined by a 64 megapixel shooter.
This is accompanied by an 8 megapixel ultra wide and 2 megapixel macro and depth lens. Moving on to the processor, the nova 7 se 5g is powered by the company’s 5g, capable kirin 820 chipset. This comes with 8 gig ram and 128 gig expandable storage. This is done through huawei’s, very own nm storage cards. Graphical duties are handled by a mali g57 gpu along with kirin gaming plus 2.0 tech for smoother gameplay. When playing mobile games. The nova 7s e5 g has a 4 000 milliamp hour battery and can use huawei’s supercharged tech up to 40 watts, thanks to the included charger with all the news, that’s going to be a big deal, you know included chargers, huawei’s really piling on the value. With this mid range phone, adding in all the things that make huawei a contender in this segment, it has really earned its place on this list. Number two motorola moto g 5g, plus at 16, 995 pesos after two years of absence in the local market. Motorola has officially returned to the philippines. Aside from a foldable flagship, we get the bang for the buck 5g capable mid ranger. The moto g5g plus it’s, been a while, since we last held the motorola phone and it’s obvious that the brand has been keeping up with the times in terms of design language with their moto g 5g. Plus the front has the slimmest bezels we have ever seen on a motorola phone.
The phone has a polycarbonate back panel that has a square shaped: camera, module, housing, four cameras, a legacy, motorola logo and an led flash that is shaped like a strip, unlike with most motorola phones, where the motorola logo at the back acts as a fingerprint scanner. The moto g 5g plus employs a side mounted fingerprint scanner that doubles as a power button. I’Ve said this before i am not a fan of back mounted fingerprint scanners, so i’m really happy with this. The moto g5 g plus has the largest display ever on a motorola phone measuring 6.7 inches. You get full hd resolution and a 20 by 9 aspect ratio. It comes equipped with a 90 hertz refresh rate and the option for 60 hertz. If you want to save some battery, this also uses a dual punch hole to house its two selfie cameras. That would be a 16 megapixel main selfie camera and an 8 megapixel ultrawide for them socially distanced group selfies for the rear. You get a 48 megapixel main camera 8 megapixel ultra wide 5 megapixel macro camera and 2 megapixel depth sensor that’s a pretty solid set of cameras for a mid ranger because it covers a lot of photo and video needs as a 5g ready phone. The moto g5 g plus is powered by a snapdragon 765 processor that is paired with 8gb ram and 128 gig internal storage. The ram capacity is kind of special for the philippine market, as other versions of the phone only come with 6 gig ram.
The moto g5 g plus comes with a 5 000 milliamp hour battery that should last you at least a day, even on 5g connectivity. This charges with usbc but only comes with 20 watt turbo charge. Motorola is definitely back and they’re doing it with a bang undercutting the price of the nova 7se. The moto g5 g plus comes with an equally good snapdragon 765 processor. The price makes it way more accessible for people who want to get a taste of 5g number 3, the xiaomi mi 10t 5g at thousand nine hundred and ninety pesos xiaomi devices are always easy to recommend due to the price to performance ratios of their devices and That certainly has not changed with the mi 10t 5g. They have always given us devices that are built well, you’re, getting gorilla glass, 5 for both the front and back of the device, plus an aluminum frame to check all the boxes, giving you a flagship, look and feel. One thing to note, though, is it could be a bit heavy and that’s mostly due to the construction, but it does feel good to hold in the hand. You also get some great speakers as well there’s, one in the bottom and the other one in the earpiece has an echo chamber on top to help it out. A key highlight for this phone is its display we’re, getting a 6.67 inch full hd, plus ltps ips display with a refresh rate of 144 hertz.
That also supports hdr 10. Plus you also get a punch hole for the 20 megapixel selfie camera as well. While we generally prefer and have been spoiled by amoled displays the color reproduction of this ain’t half bad, they also gave us a ton of options for tweaking it to our liking for the rear. You get a 64 megapixel main camera, as well as a 13 megapixel. Ultra wide and 5 megapixel macro lens there’s, no doubt that, in terms of price to performance, this is one of the best phones you can get right. Now you have a qualcomm snapdragon 865 that’s paired with 6 gig of ram and 128 gig of storage. It should go without saying that this phone can run apps and games with no problems at all. The mi 10 t5g is equipped with a 5000mah battery, which the phone does a great job in stretching out. It also supports 33 watt charging as well xiaomi releases, their flagship killer of flagship killers every year, but this is one of the best bang for the buck devices you can get right now. The biggest drawback here is that the devices are so popular that they’re kind of hard to get a hold of, since they sell out incredibly fast number four, the poco x3 nfc at 10, 990 pesos poco is dead, serious and targeting not just the budget and flagship Killer segment, but also the mid range segment as well. The x3 nfc is a serious contender in the budget.
Mid range segment and we’re not surprised while poco has always been known for having aggressively priced smartphones, they unleashed some serious magic with this release. The x3 nfc has a bold iridescent branding on the back with the racing stripe down the middle. That reminds me of an american muscle car. However, one thing that’s polarizing in terms of design is the camera array of the x3 nfc it’s huge, and the phone itself is a bit heavy because of the battery size. It has a 6.7 inch screen and utilizes an ips display at full hd plus resolution. You have a punch hole in the middle for the 20 megapixel selfie, camera what’s, so surprising and impressive about the screen is the fact that it supports a 120 hertz refresh rate. That being said, it has pretty standard picture quality and you might have a bit of a problem using it outdoors we’re happy to say that it is white vine l1 certified. So you can enjoy netflix in high definition pair, that with the stereo speakers, and you have a pretty solid media device for the cameras we have a 64 megapixel camera usually found in the 15 000 peso segment. We also have a 13 megapixel ultra wide 2 megapixel macro and depth sensor, the x3 nfc sports, a snapdragon 732g processor and is paired with a generous 6 gig of ram and up to 128 gig of storage. It was the first phone to launch with this chipset.
The chipset performs better than the helio g90p and qualcomm’s very own snapdragon 730. The 5160 milliamp hour battery was definitely a good call and makes the added weight plus width of the phone worth it. It lasted pretty long despite the 120 hertz refresh rate, and it also supports 33 watt fast charging. This phone is the cheapest on the list, but it’s definitely not pulling any punches when it comes to features hardware and everything the poco x3 nfc brings to the table. Now, before we get to the final entry we’re going gon na, take this moment to acknowledge a great phone that did not make it to the list but still deserves an honorable mention the samsung galaxy m51 at 19990 pesos, while you’re, probably looking at the samsung galaxy M51, because of its massive 7000mah battery, the phone has a lot of other things to offer. The phone has enough performance under the hood to sustain extended gaming sessions and has the camera pedigree to satisfy camera geeks as well. What we can say about the design is that it is quite chunky and heavy as well. You might have a hard time handling this phone. If you have smaller hands, you get a 6.7 inch super amoled panel with a full hd plus resolution. This has the 32 megapixel selfie camera tucked in the punch hole in the middle it’s, a super amoled panel, so needless to say that the colors and quality are very, very punchy and vibrant.
It also has wide vine l1 certification for all that netflix hd goodness. The camera stack is headlined by 64 megapixel main camera, accompanied by a 12 megapixel ultra wide and 5 megapixel depth and macro sensors. This is cool because we usually get 2 megapixel macro and depth. Sensors, the galaxy m51 sports, a qualcomm snapdragon 730 g processor, with 8 gig ram and 128 gig of expandable storage. You get snappy performance and it should run most android games well without any issues. The main feature for the galaxy m51 is the 7000mah cell. Inside of it, you’ll have a blast consuming hours of content or playing tons of games with a capacity like that. That being said, it only supports 25 watt charging, so it might take a while to fully top up that massive battery samsung potentially has a game winning device in the galaxy m51. The phone’s gigantic battery is paired with a great mid range processor, a nice looking screen and a great set of snappers making its honorable mention well deserved and last, but not the least number five. The real me seven at thirteen thousand nine hundred and ninety pesos. Just how much of an upgrade can you offer when you have a release schedule as hectic as real mean? Well, quite a bit. In fact, the ryomi 7 has plenty of new stuff under the hood that make it a notable upgrade over the real me six for the design. This time around the brand used a new matte anti glare coating that has a split asymmetric design that shimmers when light, hits it it’s not as loud as realme’s other previous designs but i’m, actually really digging it, despite the rear of the phone being constructed.
Mostly out of plastic, it doesn’t feel cheap. The entire device is pretty solid and has the right size and weight for one handed use for the display you’re looking at the 6.5 inch full hd plus lcd panel. This is a punch, hole notch, tucked on the upper left side for its 16 megapixel selfie camera happy to say that it sports a high 90 hertz refresh rate, which helps make usage, feel smooth and snappy. The colors are fine and not overly vivid as well. We have a 64 megapixel main camera, leading the quad rear camera setup. This is joined by an 8 megapixel ultrawide 2 megapixel macro and 2 megapixel black and white camera 4 portraits the real me 7 had the honor of being the first phone in the world to get mediatek’s new helio g95 processor, along with 8 gig ram and 128 Gig of internal storage that translated to smooth usage and gameplay, which makes the ryomi 7 a good option for people looking for a budget friendly device with better than average performance when it comes to gaming. The real me 7 comes with a 5 000 milliamp hour battery, which is interestingly, 500 milliamp hours more than the real me 7 pro, though it’s worth noting that the pro version still lasted longer. That being said, we have fast charging up to 30 watts via their dart fast charging tech. The real me 7 is a decent upgrade to a model released by the company this year with a nicer looking body slightly better processor, as well as a bigger battery.
The phone is still capable of delivering solid, all day performance and should perform well when you’re gaming with it.
