Best Non-Chinese Smartphones under Rs 20,000 (March 2021)


Chinese Government has created ruckus all around the world since a very long time. Recently with coronavirus and continuous capturing of the Indian land, people have had enough.

Sure the government cannot do much apart from fighting through democratic ways, but the people can. By boycotting Chinese products not only will Indian masses hurt the Chinese economy but also help recover the Indian economy that has been hit very badly due to coronavirus.

This page lists the best non-Chinese smartphones under Rs 20,000. Although there are very few non-Chinese smartphone brands in this price range there are still a few options that are very good. Let us have a look at them.

Motorola One Fushion+
Moto One Fusion+

Recently launched the Motorola One Fusion+ is the best phone under Rs 20,000 that is a non-chinese brand. It comes with the latest Snapdragon 730G that powers the Redmi Note 9 Pro as well. It has 6GB of RAM and 5000mAh battery. Along with a good set of cameras and screen. Being Motorola, the quality is top-notch too. It will also set you apart from the crowd of Realme and Redmi phones that everyone carries these days.

  • Processor: Octa-core Snapdragon 730G
  • Battery: 5000 mAh
  • Screen Size:6.5″ (1080P) 60 Hz Refresh Rate
  • RAM: 6 GB

Samsung Galaxy M21/ M31

Samsung has been playing catch up for a long time despite arriving first in the mid-range market. Samsung’s of the past were slow, overpriced and lacking in specifications. Samsung, however, has rectified all those shortcomings with the launch of M series phones which give Redmi and Realme a run for their money. With the best display in the segment, these phones have the processing power as well as the energy to outclass Chinese phones.

  • Processor: Exynos 9611
  • Battery: 6000 mAh
  • Screen Size:6.4″ (1080P) 60 Hz Refresh Rate

Refurbished Samsung Galaxy S8
Galaxy S8

Samsung Galaxy smartphones have always been the epitome of quality and innovations. It’s the only Android smartphone that has stood against the iPhone and bettered multiple times. Its screen (2960X1440) is still one of the best screens out there. Sure the phone is a couple of years old but it still holds pretty well against the mid-range phones. That too at this price point is a steal and if you get past the fact that it’s refurbished, I think it could be a really good option as a non-Chinese phone under Rs 20,000.

  • Processor: 2.3GHz Exynos 8895
  • Battery: 3000 mAh
  • Screen Size:5.8″ (1440P) 60 Hz Refresh Rate
  • RAM: 4 GB
  • Camera: 12 and 8 MP
  • Price: Rs 19,999

Samsung Galaxy M40
Galaxy S40

Another M series phone that should be on your non-Chinese phone buying list, is the M40. It has similar specs to the M21 and M31 but it has a different screen with a punch-hole. If you like these displays better than the notch ones, it could be a good option.

  • Processor: Octa-core Snapdragon 675
  • Battery: 3500 mAh
  • Screen Size:6.3″ (1080P) 60 Hz Refresh Rate
  • RAM: 6 GB
  • Camera: 32+8+5 and 16 MP
  • Price: Rs 15,999

Motorola One Action
Moto One Vision

Another Motorola phone on the list, this one is a little older but it’s still a good phone. It’s also slimmer that makes it really useful for people with small hands or women. These days phones are getting so wide that it’s almost impossible to use it with one hand. This phone manages to pack a big screen without getting too wide to be used single-handedly.

  • Processor: Exynos 9609
  • Battery: 3500 mAh
  • Screen Size:6.3″ (1080P) 60 Hz Refresh Rate
  • RAM: 4 GB
  • Camera: 19+5+2 and 12 MP
  • Price: Rs 15,989

Other options
Nokia 7.2

Nokia 5.1 Plus

Currently, in this segment, the Samsung and the Motorola appear to be the best Non-Chinese phone brands but if people continue boycotting Chinese products I’m sure it’ll give rise to good Indian smartphone alternatives in the future. For now though the above listed are the best non-Chinese smartphones under Rs 20000 in India.
