1. Lenovo K3 Note:
This is the game changer!!! The 10,000 Rs. segment offered phones with Octa core processor, 2 GB RAM, 5.5 inches screen with decent HD display, 2500 mAh + batteries and all and these specs were still considered good at this price point. But looks like Lenovo is determined to introduce great technologies at breakthrough prices. Earlier it launched the cheapest 4G smartphone at just 6,999 Rs. and now it launched a completely feature packed phone with Full HD display under 10,000 Rs. Currently no phone provides a 5.5 inches Full HD display with powerful specs and the brand value like Lenovo. The display is awesome with good viewing angles and offers great 401 ppi pixel density! When it comes to performance, the K3 Note runs on 64-bit Octa-core 1.7 GHz Mediatek MT6752 Processor coupled with 2 GB RAM which offers very good performance and can handle every task smoothly. If we talk about the design, the phone has good build quality but a simple design. The phone packs a 13 MP rear and 5 MP front camera and the picture quality of both the cameras is decent. The phone runs on the latest Android 5.0 Lollipop with Lenovo’s customized skin running on top of it. It is great on storage with 16 GB internal and 32 expandable memory options. The K3 Note supports dual-sim and 4G. And when it comes to the most important aspect – the battery life, the K3 Note with its 2900 mAh battery offers a great battery life. Overall, the phone is the game changer and offers a complete and the best package at this price. If you want better battery life the new Lenovo A5000 with 4000 mAh battery can also be a good choice in this budget, the Lenovo A7000 also packs decent features.

Rewind your thoughts back to last year and think of which was the best phone to buy under 10,000 Rs then.

Now come back to present and see what we have at just Rs. 9,000 – The Micromax Yu Yureka!!! This phone has completely revolutionized the 10,000 Rs segment. A year earlier you wouldn’t have got the phone with this specs and quality even at 25,000 Rs. So, let’s take a look at the phone. It is powered by a 64-bit Octa Core Qualcomm Snapdragon Processor which is immensely powerful. It has got 2 GB RAM, which makes the phone capable of handling heavy gaming and multi-tasking very smoothly. It runs on the CyanogenMod 12 OS, which gives you tons of extra features & capabilities. It has got a pretty large 5.5 inches screen which is even protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 3. The screen has 720 x 1280 pixels resolution which gives 267 ppi pixel density which is decent at this price. Another important thing is that it has got great picture quality with the 13 MP rear and 5 MP front cameras. It is good on storage also, it comes with 16 GB internal memory (12.5 GB user accessible) which can be expanded upto 32 GB. With the 2500 mAH Li-ion Battery the phone is good on battery too. Overall, with good specs, great camera, excellent build quality, lots of customizations and good gaming experience, it is undoubtedly a great phone to buy under 10,000 Rs.
3. Motorola Moto G (2nd Gen):
Most brands and phones in this range are running behind specs but there is one company which is still offering great value – It is Motorola whose phones don’t boast great specs but on the contrary deliver a great user experience and satisfaction. The Moto G (2nd Gen) has got a 2,000 Rs. price cut and it still offers some great values in the crowd of smartphones with great specs. It sports a 5-inch HD display protected with Corning Gorilla Glass 3. It is powered by a 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 Quad-Core processor and 1 GB RAM. It comes with water-resistant nano coating and supports Dual Sim. The phone runs on Android 4.4.4 Kitkat out of the box which is now upgradable to Android v5.0 Lollipop. Not to forget that it has the stock Android UI which delivers the pure Android experience. With the Moto G you can always get the future Android updates faster than the flagship phones. It has a 8 MP rear camera and 2 MP front camera. Well the camera quality can’t match many phones in this list but it’s still decent. It has 16 GB internal & 32 GB expandable storage. It has excellent build quality and very smooth & lag-free performance. Another advantage to buy the Moto G is that, it is a very popular phone globally and it is always there in the news so, it will always get the attention of the developers and the company. Overall, if you are a person who likes quality over quantity then this is the one, it may not have the strongest specs but, it has a good balance of everything and it gives a great user experience.
The Asus Zenfone 5 is among the very successful phones in this range since last year and, why not? It has got the 1.6 GHz Intel dual core processor with 2 GB RAM which delivers exceptional performance and good multi-tasking. The 5 inches HD screen and the display is very good, it has also got the Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection. One more thing I loved about the phone is, it has increased display sensitivity so you can use the phone even while wearing gloves, this is great for winter season. The phone’s design is sleek and beautiful. It has got good camera and it runs on the Android Kitkat, a good news is that, it will soon get the Android Lollipop update. This phone comes with two storage option 8 GB and 16 GB while both come with the expandable storage. The battery life of the phone is not too good but, its acceptable. Overall this phone has got most of the things right and gives a balanced user experience at this price.
5. Huawei Honor 4X:
Huawei (no. 2 in China) is now a more serious player in the Indian smartphone market. It has launched very exciting phones in many ranges. And the most recent is the Honor 4X which is launched at 10,000 Rs. The phone packs very exciting specifications. It runs on the 64-bit Quad Core 1.2 GHz Snapdragon 410 Processor coupled with 2 GB RAM, which gives good performance and handles most of the tasks effectively. Still, if you need a phone for gaming, it will be good to go with the Yureka or the K3 Note. It has the 5.5 inches screen with 1280 x 720 pixels resolution same as the Yureka YU, Redmi Note and Lenovo A7,000 and as I said above, it is not great but its acceptable considering the overall features at this price. The design of the phone is simple but it feels good, the textured back panel of the phone gives a very good grip. It has got 13 MP rear and 5 MP front cameras and both the cameras are good. The USP of the phone is that it has Dual Sim and both the Sim can support 4G LTE. It has got 8 GB internal storage which is expandable upto 32 GB. It sports a 3000 mAh battery which delivers very good battery backup. Overall, it is a very good phone and can be another good choice at this price. Huawei has launched another variant of the Honor 4X known as Honor 4C, it can also be a good choice if you want a 5 inches phone.
