Guys yesterday my wifes phone died.
She is sharing my phone in dual sim mode and its affecting my wfh.
Her wfh is also severely affected.

Budget is between 15-20k.
Her usage is taking photos not selfies but rear camera, whatsapp, yt videos, bluetooth.

Looking for an Ad-free no crap phone with great camera and battery life and large screen.

Kindly suggest.

And how much do I need to shell out for IP67 rating phone?

Take a look at Samsung M21/M30s/M31. My brother recently picked up Realme 6 Pro for 18k and very happy with it as well.

Isnt samsung full of bloatware?
Not so much. Recently bought a M31 as backup for wife. You can uninstall all the bloatware. Spend some 5-10 min checking those out. Uninstall is possible without any mods/special tweaks.

On the M21 I was able to uninstall most unwanted apps except a few like the samsung galaxy store or facebook or netflix but I believe you can "disable" the apps, there is an option when you long-press the app icons.

You can go for either Motorola One Fusion Plus, Xiaomi Redmi Note 9 Pro Max or Realme X2. If you are not concerned about brands than these phones are very well for use and its fit into your budget.

+1 for Moto fusion plus. It's stock Android, no bloatware and cams seems to be surprisingly good for the price. And it ticks all your requirements.
Realme is somewhere trending along Xiaomi line, with provisioning of ads. They have not enabled it for now, but you can never say about these low tier manufacturers. Made a mention as OP said ad free phone.
IP67, north of 30k.

Yeah One Fusion Plus is the only decent stock android device at that price bracket. But it's insanely heavy and lacks compass.

M31 S from Samsung is also released but they have the same processor as M31. Just another option.
