Features to expect in the best phones under Rs 35,000:

The best phones under 35000 are usually flagship material from last 6-12 months or match current flagships closely. In terms of display, you’ll find plenty many phones with 2K (QHD) display, while 1080p should be the bare minimum. Snapdragon 821 is the processor to beat in the budget, followed by the Snapdragon 820 and Snapdragon 810. Snapdragon 6xx series doesn’t seem like a right fit in this budget and you should avoid phones with those processors.

As for the camera, most of them come with large pixel count but look for something with a large aperture and pixel size. 4GB RAM is pretty much the norm for smartphones around Rs 35,000, while you’ll encounter devices with 6GB RAM in this budget too. Lastly, look for something that is scheduled to be upgraded to Android 7.0 at least and comes with at least Android 6.0. Happy shopping.
