Conclusion

To be very honest, 30,000 is a pretty big amount to invest in a smart phone. So, it should be spent wisely keeping the features in mind.

In a Rs.30,000 smartphone, what we opt for is a smooth performing hassle less truly SMART phone. All the above smartphones are among the top ones in that range, so suit yourself with whichever quenches your thirst.

If you are into gaming stuff and not that much into taking photos or videos, OnePlus Nord can be a good choice for you. Now, if you are not a gaming freak and just want a decent phone for daily use, Vivo V20 can do the job.

Again, if you are camera loving person and love blogging, shooting videos, keeping memories captured in tiny frames, then Realme X3 SuperZoom and Oppo Reno 3 Pro would be best for you.

But if you are okay with a phone of great value, you can go for Realme X2 Pro.
