This is a substantial budget to expect phones with powerful processors, high quality cameras, excellent displays and more, and we have just that for you. So let’s take a look at some solid all-round phones you can buy within Rs 40,000 this month.
Best phones to buy under Rs 40,000 in India
Motorola Edge 30 Pro 5G
Let’s start with the first of the two Moto phones. The Motorola Edge 30 Pro 5G seems to have received a major price cut lately and you can get it close to 35K at the moment. This phone is powered by Qualcomm’s previous flagship Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chip, which is still extremely powerful, and comes with 8 GB RAM and 128 GB internal storage. Its 6.7-inch Full HD+ OLED screen flaunts a 144 Hz refresh rate, HDR10+ compliance and can display over a billion colours. You get Corning Gorilla Glass protection against scratches at the front and back.
The photography department on the Motorola Edge 30 Pro is impressive too, starting with a 50MP primary camera with optical image stabilisation (OIS) and another 50MP camera for ultra-wide photography; there’s a 2MP depth sensor too. The 60MP front camera is bound to impress the selfie enthusiasts. Its 4800 mAh battery comfortably lasts close to a day and a half of moderate use and supports 68W fast charging as well as 15W fast wireless charging. This phone runs Android 12, and like most Motorola phones, you get a clean and near-stock user interface.

Motorola Edge 30 Fusion
With the Edge 30 Pro selling for that price, we were in two minds if this second Moto phone deserved a place on this list. We chose to go with the Motorola Edge 30 Fusion purely for its sleek and stylish design. It is easily the best-looking phone in this list courtesy of its curved display and just 7.5 mm thickness. And it’s not just about looks, it has got some serious substance too.
You get a 10-bit 6.55-inch P-OLED display with 144 Hz refresh rate and HDR10+ compliance. There is Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection against scratches at the front and back. It is powered by a Snapdragon 888+ chip which is no pushover, and is accompanied by 8 GB RAM and 128 GB UFS 3.1 internal storage. This phone runs Android 12, and again, being a Motorola phone, you get a clean and near-stock user interface.
The camera spread on the Motorola Edge 30 Fusion is fairly varied. It is helmed by a 50MP primary camera with OIS. The 13MP ultra-wide camera with auto-focus is quite versatile and also doubles up as a quality macro camera. A 2MP depth sensor completes the pack at the back. The 32MP front camera will have the selfie crowd interested. Its 4400 mAh battery can go on for over a day of moderate use, and a 68W fast charger is bundled along.

Samsung Galaxy S21 FE 5G
Here’s another pleasant surprise, the Samsung Galaxy S21 FE 5G in this budget. This phone too has a sleek design and also flaunts an IP68 rating for dust and fluid resistance. It has a 6.4-inch Full HD+ Dynamic AMOLED 2X display with HDR10+ compliance, 120 Hz refresh rate and Corning Gorilla Glass Victus protection. It is powered by Samsung’s Exynos 2100 chip which can be found in several high-end phones from the company. You can get its 8 GB RAM and 128 GB internal storage variant in this budget.

The camera performance is impressive with excellent detail and wide dynamic range, and its low light performance is noteworthy too. A 4500 mAh battery keeps the phone running for close to a day and a half of moderate use and supports wireless charging as well.

Its 256 GB internal storage variants with 8 GB RAM can be yours with a few bucks to spare. The phone launched with Android 12 with Realme UI 3.0, and the Android 13 update has started rolling out.
