One of the complete smartphone categories that has spoilt consumers with various choices is the upper mid-range price segment, also known as Rs 35,000 price category.
So, of course, from stellar camera performance to unique-looking designs, consumers get plenty of options in this price segment. But as they say, not every smartphone can be called the best. What are your options if your budget is around Rs 35,000 and you wish to buy a solid upper-mid-range smartphone? We have gathered a list of the best smartphones.
1. Nothing Phone 1
The Nothing Phone 1 was the most unique-looking device of 2022, and the phone is powered and tested Snapdragon 778G processor with up to 12GB RAM.

2. Google Pixel 6a
If the Nothing Phone 1 has impressive looks, the Google Pixel 6a has the best camera system in the mid-range price feature. The Pixel 6a has a solid camera system that can go toe-to-toe with any flagship smartphone, and might even come out on top in a camera battle, quite literally! An additional bonus is, of course, stock Android 13, with a promise of 3 years of future OS updates and four years of security patches. The Google Pixel 6a retails for Rs 34,199 for the lone 6GB RAM + 128GB storage variant.
3. iQOO 9 SE
The iQOO 9 SE 5G is a solid mid-range choice for folks who want a performance-driven smartphone. Of course, many better smartphones in demand also focus on execution, but they cost a lot more than the iQOO 9 SE.
