Best Budget Smartphones For The Year 2022

The year 2022 is about to end and it has been an eventful year for the smartphone industry. The chip supply issues caused by the Covid-19 lockdowns continued through the major part of 2022 causing a hindrance. Despite that, smartphone manufacturers battled through it and kept churning out budget devices in India. Legacy players like Samsung and Motorola, which once left the category for Xiaomi, Realme, and others to feast on, returned to take a pie of the market. Thus, giving the customers plenty of options to choose from.

The year 2022 saw the features such as punch-hole selfie camera cutouts, AMOLED displays, 50MP cameras, and USB Type-C ports, slowly trickling down to budget smartphones. Not just the features, manufacturers also focussed on improving the design aspect of the sub-₹10,000 smartphones. Choosing the right smartphone could be a daunting task, more so in the budget segment. But fret not, as we have curated a list of some of the best budget smartphones that you can buy this December. So, without any further ado let’s dive into it.
