Redmi K20 Pro

The Redmi K20 Pro is not the electric gaming phone but under INR30,000 price tag it packs enough grunt to excel in the PUBG gameplay. The affordable flagship is powered by snappy Snapdragon 855 SoC coupled with up to 8GB RAM and 256GB internal storage. The software Android 9 Pie based on MIUI 10 is also well optimized. The PUBG sessions appear smooth even with high graphics.

Spanning 6.39 inches diagonally the Super AMOLED display with 91.9% screen-to-body-ratio offers full-view screen with no encroaching spaces as it is bereft of punch hole or a notch. The display has full HD+ resolution but visuals look shiny with 430 nits of brightness.

A 4,000mAh battery bundled with 18W fast charging (it supports 27W fast charge though) gives you ample juice to play the game. Bonus, you get a 48MP Sony IMX586 camera at the back paired with 13MP ultra-wide-angle sensor and a 5MP telephoto lens for taking photos. And, as it happens, the photos come out solid and impressive.


The POCO F1 though a year older it easily beats others under INR20,000 price range with a punch. The reason being it is powered by Snapdragon 845 SoC, whereas other offerings in this price range are packed with only 600 or 700 series SoCs.

Besides the Snapdragon 845 octa-core SoC, the POCO F1 packs up to 8GB RAM and 256GB default storage. However, we recommend you the 6GB RAM+128GB storage model to get it under INR20,000.  A powerful chip, optimized MIUI 10 based on Android 9 Pie, and smooth, lightweight POCO launcher all ensure you a gliding performance.

The Liquid Cool technology that is otherwise found in hardcore gaming smartphones helps the processor to acquire its peak performance. A 4,000W battery equipped with Quick Charge 3.0 keeps a good reserve of fuels so that you power through the PUBG sessions uninterrupted. On the downside, you get a plastic back panel but that is acceptable given its affordable price tag.

Realme 5

Not many smartphones in sub-INR10,000 category give you satisfactory PUBG experience, but the Realme 5 has surprises in store for you. Powered by new Snapdragon 665 SoC and mated to up to 4GB RAM and 128GB storage the smartphone is well optimized for gaming.

Visuals appear indulging thanks to a 6.5-inch display which at 20:9 aspect ratio is taller and immersive, though with HD+ resolution. It runs the latest ColorOS 6 slapped on top of Android 9 Pie. A hefty 5,000mAh battery takes away the halfway charging worries from you.

However, the best smooth experience of PUBG is realized on medium settings. Also, the Dirac sound works best on earphones. The Realme 5 comes with impressive quad-cameras at the back- for the first time in this price range. There is a water-drop notch up front, which is small and encloses a 16MP selfie camera.

Under INR10,000 you will get the 3GB RAM+32GB variant but good thing is that it is armed with a dedicated microSD card slot for expansion. So, no worries, there.
