This smartphone is great shout for one of the best battery and fast charging performances under Rs 50,000.
Vivo V25 Pro
While Vivo V25 Pro garnered all the praise for its camera unit and the colour-changing back panel, its efficient battery went under the radar.

With moderate to heavy usage (gaming, internet usage, watching videos), the battery lasts for an entire day, but you will definitely need to plug it in for the next day. However, if you’re more conservative with your smartphone usage and only have up to 3 hours of screen time a day, the OnePlus Nord CE 2 Lite is capable of lasting for almost two days. The 33W fast charger replenishes 50% of the battery in 30 minutes, a notable feat for any smartphone in this segment.
The Samsung A73 does not come with a charger in the box, nor does it offer a charging speed as fast as the other phones on this list. But, the A73 deserves its spot solely because of its tremendous battery life. While it may take almost 2 hours to fully charge, the Samsung A73 does not drain quickly once it’s at 100%. Even with heavy usage, the A73 can easily last a day with a considerable amount of battery left, which is more than necessary to go for half a day more. With more restrained use and lowering the refresh rate to 60Hz, the smartphone can easily last 2 days. For those who travel short distances frequently and don’t always want to carry around a charger with them, the Samsung A73 is an excellent choice.
Poco X4 Pro

Not many smartphones in this category can boast of that. Since Poco X4 Pro also caters to the gaming audience, its battery has been built to withstand heavy use and can easily last more than a day if you’re a casual user. If you don’t mind charging your phone at the end of the day, you can use the X4 Pro at a 120Hz refresh rate without needing to worry about the battery drain. If you want your phone to last up to 2 days, you may want to consider bringing the refresh rate down. On top of that, the 67W charger can boost the battery up to 60% in 15 minutes and fully charge it in about 40 minutes. You won’t get better performance at this price.
Vivo T1 Pro 5G
Closing out the list is the Vivo T1 Pro 5G. With the T1 Pro, you get a phone that matches the performance of smartphones in a category above it. This also includes its 4,700mAh battery which definitely puts a shift in and carries the performance to another level. The Vivo T1 Pro gets fully charged in under an hour, thanks to the 66W fast charger. The phone itself can typically last an entire day, even with heavy use that includes gaming, shooting videos, using Bluetooth accessories, and browsing social media.
