Samsung Galaxy F22 is probably the best value for money smartphone on the market and only Xiaomi’s Redmi 10 Prime gives it a tough go. At this price range, these two are the best options and other smartphones do not even come close. Samsung Galaxy F22 offers a lot for this price range. It has the best display in this category offering a Super AMOLED 90Hz refresh rate display. Not even the Redmi 10 Prime can match this feat.
The quad-camera setup also offers decent photography. Hopefully, there will not be decoy macro cameras in 2022 from smartphone companies, and instead, they shall offer better performance from other cameras on the phone. The battery backup of the phone is also praiseworthy as it provides more than enough power to go through the day. It is just priced above Rs 20,000 but offers way more than the smartphones under Rs 20,000. Along with Redmi 10 Prime, it is the best budget smartphone available in the market.
