The LG Nexus 5X is the ReviewGist pick for the best smartphone under Rs 25K for 2017. Being Nexus branded, the 5X supports the stock version of Android without any of the bloatware found with the more customized versions. There have been some concerns raised about its battery life, but nothing too serious. The only big gotcha is probably the limited 2GB RAM which might not hold well as you keep filling the 5X with apps.
