Xiaomi Redmi Note 9 Pro
The Xiaomi Redmi Note 9 Pro is the first one to land in this list of Best Phone Under Rs. 13000. It has great specifications for the price of Rs. 13,000 as it comes with Android 10 and it has Snapdragon 720G which is a 2.3 GHz Octa-Core processor. It comes with 4 GB of RAM with 128 GB of storage and it can be expanded up to 512 GB with SD card support. This phone comes with a 6.67″ 395 PPI IPS LCD which is quite huge.

Realme Narzo 20
The Realme 20 Narzo is the no 2 in our list and it is actually a quite popular device in this list. It comes at around Rs 11,479 and offers great specs. It comes with a 2 GHz Mediatek Helio G85 Octa-core chipset. It comes in different variants and we would suggest you have the 4 GB variant of it. It comes with 6.5″ 270 PPI IPS LCD 60 Hz display. It comes with 64 internal storage and it can be expanded to 256 GB only.
The phone has a triple camera setup at the back of 48+8+2 MP with a single LED flash and has an 8 MP single camera for the front. It comes with a huge 6000 mAH battery with quick charging support and USB type-c is already there. It has all other necessary features like a fingerprint sensor, Gorilla Glass 3, etc.
The Realme 6i is a great choice to have under Rs. 13,000 in India as it comes with great specs. It offers Android 10 with a 2.05 GHz Octa-Core CPU which is Mediatek Helio G90T and has 4 GB of Ram with 64 GB of storage which according to us could have been a bit more. The display is a 6.5 90 Hz IPS LCD.
This phone has a decent 4300 mAH battery which will last you one day easily due to the power-efficient chip. It has flash charging support with USB Type-C. For pictures, it has a 48+8+2+2 MP quad-camera setup at the back and for selfies, you can use the 16 MP front camera. It has a gaming-centric chip so you should not rely on its speakers and get a gaming headset for playing games.
The Realme 7i is another great phone from Realme and it comes at Rs. 12,000 price point. The only difference it has from the previous Realme smartphone is that it has Snapdragon 662 chip which is as not good as Mediatek G90T. We seriously don’t have any clue why Realme did this to their next-gen smartphone. The Realme 6i is a better pick when it comes to choosing from Realme 7i and 6i. The 6i has a gaming and power-efficient processor.
The Realme 7i is actually a downgrade if you are thinking to move from Realme 6i to 7i, so we won’t suggest you do that, even if the 6i is a bit old, but it will perform better when it comes to gaming and saving power.
The Realme 7i has a big 5000 mAH battery and the 6i only has a 4300 mAH battery but according to us, they both should last long somewhere exact due to the power efficiency of Helio G90T in 6i. Apart from that, there is one more difference that the Realme 7i has a 64 MP primary rear camera but according to our testing and usage, the Realme 6i camera is very much similar to 7i so there is no major difference that you will notice in both of these phones. So overall Realme 6i is a good option if you have to choose from 6i and 7i.
Xiaomi Redmi 9 Power 6GB RAM
The Xiaomi Redmi 9 Power 6 GB RAM is the last one on this list. It comes at a price point of Rs. 13,000 and offers great specs. It also has a 2 GHz Snapdragon 662 Octa-Core CPU which is paired with 6 GB RAM. And it has a 128 GB ROM. The display is a 6.53″ IPS LCD and according to us, it should at least have a 90 Hz display. It comes with a 48 MP primary rear camera. On the back of it, there is a quad-camera setup of 48+8+2+2 MP with a single LED flash. And for selfies, it has a single 8 MP camera at the front, which is average for taking pictures.
