Our smartphones are both a utility and accessory. We need to carry them around each day, on all occasion and with all kinds of outfits that we carry. Understandably, it makes sense if you want to go with a branded option even if that means compromising on a few hardware specifications.

Besides, going with a leading brand entails advantages like better, cheaper after sales support and other perks. For instance, Samsung users recently got to grab Reliance Jio SIM cards with unlimited 3 months data before everyone else.

Point being, if you have already decided on buying a Samsung brand, here are the best available Samsung smartphones under different budgets that you can opt for.

Best Samsung Smartphone Above Rs. 30,000

Samsung Galaxy S7 & S7 Edge:

As of now, the Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge are the best that the Korean conglomerate has to offer. These premium devices not just mesmerize with their looks, they certainly have the hardware muscle to shun the competition.

The primary highlight is the best low light camera performance available in the market today. Another premium feature which comes with these premium devices is their ability to resist water and dust. So if you are looking to buy the best Samsung phone that money can buy, you should consider buying either the Samsung Galaxy S7 or Galaxy S7 Edge (or patiently wait for the Note 7?).

Samsung Galaxy Note 5 Dual SIM

Samsung Galaxy Note 5 Dual SIM is almost a year old but still it is one of the finest phones available in the market today.

It has a capable camera, fast chipset, good GPU for all the ‘2K’ heavy lifting and decent battery backup. Continuing with the Note series trend, Galaxy Note 5 also features an improved S-Pen which has some new tricks up its sleeves.

If you are in the market and looking to buy a premium smartphone which is less taxing on the pocket as compared to Galaxy S7 and Note 5 then Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Plus could be your best bet. Taking a leaf out of Apple’s book, Samsung too decided to introduce a Plus variant of its 2015’s flagship device Galaxy S6 Edge. The USP of this phablet is its dual curved edges that also make it aesthetically appealing. The user can access notifications, quick contacts and watch time without turning the screen on using the side edge. Currently, it is retailing in India for around Rs. 40,000.
