The holiday sales season is here, and there are some really great deals to be had across a variety of categories and budgets. Today, we’re going to focus on the best smartphone deals you can get under a generous budget of Rs 75,000. Oh, and we managed to get some really good ones for you. Without wasting any time, let’s get to the point before they break up.

Best phones to buy under Rs 75,000 in India

Apple iPhone 13
You may have read about the mad rush for the iPhone 13 of around 50k on the first day of the sale. It was the 128GB storage variant. But since you have a much bigger budget, why not go for double the power? The 256GB variant of Apple iPhone 13 is currently selling on Flipkart for less than the official selling price of the 128GB variant. The phone fits perfectly in the hand thanks to its rather compact dimensions and has a degree of protection against ingress of IP68. It launched with iOS 15 and can be easily upgraded to iOS 16 with additional OS updates over the years.

The Apple iPhone 13 features a 6.1-inch Super Retina XDR OLED display with a resolution of 2532 x 1170 pixels and is compatible with HDR10 and Dolby Vision. Its core is Apple’s previous flagship A15 Bionic chip, which works even in the iPhone 14. It has two 12-megapixel cameras on the back with a primary lens that offers OIS (Optical Image Stabilization) and a secondary capable of taking ultra-wide shots. Photo and video performance is excellent, as expected from an iPhone.

Samsung Galaxy Z Flip4 5G
The price of the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip4 has been fluctuating every few hours, but at the time of writing, it’s selling well below 75k. I’m sure this phone has piqued your curiosity and attention over the past few weeks given its unique form factor. While the dynamic AMOLED 2X display is the highlight of this phone, not many people realize how powerful this phone is. Equipped with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chip, it’s technically even more powerful than all Samsung Galaxy S22 phones, including the Ultra.

Coming back to the display, the 6.7-inch elongated screen is HDR10+ compatible and has a resolution of 2640 x 1080 pixels with a refresh rate of 120Hz. There’s also a tiny 1.9-inch Super AMOLED display on the back (well, the front when the phone is folded), which is a pretty handy addition. You can purchase the 256GB storage variant in this budget in the current sales. The photography department is similar to the iPhone 13 with two 12MP cameras. The primary one has OIS, and the secondary takes ultra-wide shots with a viewing angle of 123 degrees. The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip4 runs Android 12 with One UI 4.1.

Samsung Galaxy S22 5G

This phone also has an IP68 dust and liquid resistance rating. The phone has an aluminum frame and has Corning Gorilla Glass Victus+ on the front and back. It sports a 6.1-inch Full HD+ Dynamic AMOLED 2X display with 1300 nits peak brightness, HDR10+ compliance and 120Hz refresh rate.


The S22 5G is powered by Qualcomm’s flagship Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chip and runs Android 12 with Samsung’s One UI 4.1. The photography department consists of three cameras on the back, starting with a 50MP primary camera with dual pixel PDAF and OIS, a 12MP ultra-wide camera with Super Steady video support, and a 10MP telephoto camera with OIS for 3x optical zoom. As expected, the camera has flagship specifications and can record videos in 8K resolution. The 3,700mAh battery powers the phone through a day of moderate use and supports 25W fast charging as well as 15W fast wireless charging.

We have another fully loaded unit on sale for a lower price than usual.

It has a crisp 6.78-inch HDR10+ compatible AMOLED display with a resolution of 3200 x 1440 pixels, a refresh rate of 120Hz and can display more than a billion color shades.

And there’s a 16-megapixel telephoto camera with OIS that provides 2.5x optical zoom. The 16MP front camera does a good job with selfies and video calls. The iQOO 9 Pro 5G’s 4,700mAh battery can last more than a day with moderate use, and the included 120W fast charger claims to fully charge it in just 20 minutes.

Xiaomi 12 Pro 5G
The top-of-the-line Xiaomi 12 Pro 5G is currently on sale on Amazon India for Rs 58,999 and if that wasn’t enough, you can get an additional 8K discount when you pay with any credit card. Yes, that would make it a candidate for the budget phone list, but then it’s better to choose this than something similar that sells for a lot more, right? And the phone is good enough to be on this list thanks to some truly flagship features.

It sports a 6.73-inch 10-bit LTPO 2.0 AMOLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate and a QHD resolution of 3200 x 1440 pixels. Compatible with HDR10+ and Dolby Vision, the screen can display a billion color shades and a brightness of up to 1500 nits. It is protected by a layer of Corning Gorilla Glass Victus. The rear camera department has three 50MP cameras – a primary one with OIS, a 115-degree ultra-wide camera and a telephoto lens with 2x optical zoom. The 32MP front camera is also impressive.


Like many of the phones on this list, the Xiaomi 12 Pro 5G is also powered by Qualcomm’s flagship Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chip, and you can get 12GB of RAM and 256GB of UFS 3.1 storage with it.

The phone also supports 50W fast wireless charging. The phone runs Android 12 with MIUI 13.
