Speaking of the Smartphones lying below Rs. 10,000, there are actually many. These smartphones might not have the best build quality around, can’t show the contents in the clearest display ever, or maybe not the best performing camera in low lights, but these are the phones that people would care with emotion from the core of their hearts. In most cases smartphones in this budget range are someone’s first ever smartphone! However, let’s keep the emotional talks away and let us pick top 5 best Smartphone under Rs. 10,000 for you.
1. HTC Desire 310
Taiwanese company HTC wins it all when the discussion ends up in smartphone market. The Desire 310 comes in dual SIM option. The price slightly varies for different colors, even though that depends on the market. In Indian market, the variation does happen. The phone is powered by Mediatek MT6528M like many other smartphones in this range alongside the 1 GB RAM. Mali 400MP2 performs all the graphical tasks required. The rear camera captures photos in 5 megapixels while the front camera is only VGA, not so selfie friendly so think twice. However, price is only Rs. 8,690.
2. Huawei G610s
If you want a bigger phone within the aforementioned budget range, you could consider buying Huawei G610s. This smartphone has a 5 inch display that could accommodate 540×960 pixels and a pixel density of 220 ppi. IPS LCD makes it easier to see in different display conditions and the viewing angles are good as well. Mediatek MT6589 is the usual processor used in many low budget smartphones and G610s is no different. The 1 GB RAM and PowerVR SGX544 GPU ensures better performance and multitasking as well. Everything of these comes only for Rs. 9999.
3. Lenovo A328
This phone is 0.5 inches smaller than the previous one. The 4.5 inches display has a resolution of 480×584 pixels, populating a decent amount of pixel density which happens to be 218 ppi. Dual SIM feature enables the users to keep two SIMs up and working at the same time and ensures maximum productivity. Being run by a Mediatek MT6528M processor, Lenovo A328 is an above average performer. 1 GB RAM is a standard for phones within this range; and all other standard connectivity features are available. Lenovo A328 costs only Rs. 8,297 in India.
4. Micromax Doodle Canvas A111
If you have a soft corner for Qualcomm Snapdragon processors (which many people have and there’s nothing wrong about it), then you should choose the Micromax Doodle Canvas A111. It’s powered by an MSM8225Q processor that is quad core 1.2 GHz. 512 MB is slightly on the lower side and could indeed have been more; but it still provides decent multitasking capabilities. The 8 MP camera autofocuses the subject and lights up the dual-LED flash if ever necessary; if even has Geo-tagging feature. All these sell for only Rs. 9,439.
5. Lenovo A850
This smartphone from Lenovo packs the almost same hardware configuration – quad core 1.7 GHz Mediatek MT6582 processor, Mali 400MP2 GPU, 1 GB RAM, 5 MP rear autofocus and VGA front camera etc. There’s nothing really special to talk about, but the display dimension is slightly bigger than other phones available in the same budget range. It’s a 5.5 inches display containing 540×960 pixels. Standard connectivity features are available and this Lenovo A850 sells for Rs. 9,449.
If you extend your grasp from branded to even many Chinese and non-branded phones, you will literally hundreds of phone in this budget range. We would recommend buying one among these five, though.
