1. Asus Zenfone 2 ZE551ML (2GB RAM):
The Zenfone 5 was a hit! Looks like that piece of success has given Asus the perfect sense of market demand. I am saying this because the newly launched Asus Zenfone 2 series is excellent and pretty much delivers everything that a user desires – Good Performance, Camera, Battery Life, Design, Latest Android and an overall good User Experience. Well, the Zenfone 2 is quite well-known for its 4 GB RAM but it starts from 19,999 Rs. but at under 15k we have got the Zenfone 2 ZE551ML with 2GB RAM (details about other variants here). It runs on Quad Core, 64-bit, 1.8 GHz Intel Atom Z3560 processor which is very powerful. It sports a 5.5 inches Full HD display which is very good and it is also protected with Corning Gorilla Glass 3. The phone has a 13 MP rear & 5 MP front camera, the picture quality of both the cameras is very impressive. They are bright & colourful. It allows FHD video recording & produces good quality videos. It also has Dual-LED Flash and many other features. It runs on the Android v5.0 Lollipop with Asus’s ZenUI running on top of it. It supports Dual Sim & 4G (LTE). It is good on storage and has a good 3000 mAh battery with fast charging feature. When it comes to design, the phone looks very good and more importantly it’s different from other phones in the market. Overall, the Zenfone 2 at this price is a perfect all round device.
2. Samsung Galaxy S4:
“Exclusivity is all black” that’s what Samsung says when it slightly relaunched the Galaxy S4 with the Premium Note Series leather back panel and further slashed the price of the Samsung Galaxy S4 to just 15,999 Rs. With the all new back panel the phone now looks beautiful than ever and also feels much better. Most of you may have heard about this phone as it is among the most popular gadget in the history of Samsung. It’s a great performer with good hardware too. It’s the world’s first Octa Core Processor phone. Its old now but only on paper, when you will use this phone, you will feel it is fresh, energetic and powerful. It has got the latest Android Lollipop update which made the phone even more exciting. It has got great performance, camera, display and battery life. The reduced price of the S4 with all the exciting flagship features, makes the phone very attractive choice. Overall, it has got very powerful hardware and it is the perfect blend of user experience, features & design. Not to forget that after buying a Samsung phone, you can rest assured to get the best after sales service even if you live in smaller cities. So, we can call it the perfect phone at this range for most people. At this price, we have got another very very good Samsung phone – the Samsung Galaxy Grand Max. The Grand Max has amazing 13 MP rear and 5 MP front cameras. The phone has got a refreshing back panel and it is good in all the departments and has grown very popular. So, it can be a choice for you if you want a better front camera phone from Samsung.
3. Xiaomi Mi4 (16 GB):
“Power” & “Simplicity” are the two words which describe the Mi4 entirely. It runs on the very popular and very powerful Snapdragon 801 Processor which was used in almost all the last generation flagship phones. To make the performance even greater it has got 3 GB RAM. So, there is no need to describe the performance, you yourself can imagine how fast and fabulously it will perform. It sports a 5 inches Full HD display which is also pretty good and bright. The things we should discuss in details is the camera performance of the phone. It has got the Sony IMX 214 CMOS sensor which is quite advanced. The camera quality is pretty good, it is capable of recording 4K videos, the Autofocus of the phone is pretty fast (0.3 Seconds) and decent and works quite well. The camera works quite well at night also, it has High Dynamic Flash which takes two photos one with flash and one without flash and then mixes the colors in both the photos so, the image gets natural colors. The 8 MP front camera is equally good. The battery life of the phone is good. Its design is simple but the metallic bezels gives it a premium and stylish touch. It runs on the custom Android skin of Xiaomi which is the MIUI V6 and is quite beautiful. The Infrared blaster in the phone might be quite useful to control TV, AC, etc. Overall, it’s the beast of the phone and is certainly a great choice for camera lovers or power-hungry users but it has two downsides also – it is a single sim phone and there is only 16 GB storage which can’t be expanded. If you like the Mi 4 but dual sim is a must you can also buy a refreshed version of it – the Xiaomi Mi 4i which comes with dual-sim but still lacks microSD slot.
4. Lenovo P70:
Smartphones have evolved much but not their battery life. If you forget to charge your phone in the night, the moment you realize this fact the next morning before leaving for the office, it breaks panic and havoc, you madly run-over to the charging point to save your phone from dying. Well there has to be a phone which can assure you, you aren’t a criminal if you forget to charge your phone and it can still run through your day. It’s not like that there haven’t been 4,000 or 5,000 mAh battery phones but, those phones only focused on the battery whereas a user wants all the features and specs of the top phones with exceptional battery. The Lenovo P70 is the exact one with a 4,000 mAh battery and great features. It runs on the Octa-core 1.7 GHz Mediatek MT6752 Processor coupled with 2 GB RAM, which ensures good performance. It has a 5 inches HD display which is decent, very good 13 MP & 5 MP cameras, Android v4.0 kitkat, dual sim, 4G and 16 GB internal storage which is expandable upto 32 GB. Overall, if battery is your concern, this can be a great choice.
5. HTC Desire 626G Plus:
Beautiful!!! This is the feeling you get when you first see the phone. The newly launched HTC Desire 626G Plus carries forward the new design trend of the mid ranged HTC devices like the Desire 826. The phone’s design is awesome and you can fall in love with it instantly. It’s not only beautiful from outside but the HTC Sense UI is also pretty beautiful. The phone is also good when it comes to the hardware which runs the phone. It sports an Octa-core 1.7 GHz Cortex-A53 Mediatek MT6752 Processor and 1 GB of RAM which runs the phone very smoothly. It has 5 inches HD screen and the display quality is very good. In the HTC Desire 626G Plus, HTC has increased the camera from 8 MP in the Desire 620 to 13 MP rear camera, it also has a 5 MP front camera and both the cameras of the phone are very good. It supports dual sim but doesn’t have 4G (LTE) which its competitors are offering at the same price. It has decent battery life, 8 GB of internal storage which can be expanded upto 32 GB. One thing to note is that, the back of the phone is glossy so it attracts fingerprints easily. Overall, if you want a great design phone with good performance from among the top brands then this can also be a good choice. HTC also offers bigger 5.5 inches HTC Desire 816G Plus (Octa Core), it can also be a good choice if you want the design of HTC with a bigger screen.
