Looking to buy a mid ranged smartphone? Then it can be a very tedious task. As there are number of good phones in this range which make everybody confused and helpless.  Don’t worry now, I am here to help you out. I have written the latest list of 5 Best Android Phones under 15000 Rs. for the month of February. Read it and compare the phones and choose the best one for you.

There are some amazing phones in this range. And the entry of Motorola has made the competition very tight. Check out the list below:

#Buying Tip:

In this lovely month of February, when the whole world celebrates love, it can be a wise time to buy your gadgets as there are many offers going on for the valentine’s month. Buying online can definitely save you some money. And no doubt Flipkart is best for Indian buyers.

1. Motorola Moto G:

The much awaited Moto G is now launched in India. After the successful run in the overseas market, it has created the same magic in India as well. After the phone was launched at Flipkart, the 16 GB model went out of stock in just 15 minutes. It has raised the standard in the 15,000 range. The phone runs on the very latest Android 4.4 Kitkat. Excellent build quality and amazing performance. It has got one of the best ratings and user reviews with thousands of users being very satisfied. Although its camera is just 5 MP, the phone is still the best overall package. Its worth to compromise over the camera.

With the back designed like the new Micromax Canvas Doodle, the overall specifications, performance and build quality is quite good! For those who are not satisfied with the Moto G for some reason this is the best choice with a more powerful processor and camera.

      Moto g will not be going to disappoint you as the camera is 5 MP only but it takes really good photos and nice features like slow motion video, and burst mode under this price range, and performance wise it is the best smartphone available in the market at its price range

    • March 5, 2014 at 10:39 pm

      Hello Rajesh,

      At 30,000 Galaxy S4 is an awesome choice. Google Nexus 5(28,000) is a tough competitor though but S4 is a winner at this price.

    I Have Confused….!!
    In this 3 Mobile(Micromax Canvas 4, Micromax Canvas Turbo and Motorola Moto G)…… Pliz Help me.
    which one i have to buy i don’t know……….

    I Need your Help Rahul Dubey Via Best Tech Guru

    Micromax Canvas 4

    DISADVANTAGES:-
    Heavy Weight 158g (Average: 136g) : Holding Heavy weight mobile phones for long time will make your arms tired.

    Doesn’t Have A Compass: Compass Determines direction facing relative to North, East, West and South.

    Short Battery Talk: Time 8 Hours(Average: 7.5 Hours)With short battery talk time, you won’t be able to talk continously on the phone for a long period of time without charging

    Micromax Canvas Turbo
    DISADVANTAGES:-
    No Memory Card Support: Memory cards give your device more storage capacity. So you can store more songs, photos and videos.

    Non-Removable Battery: Cannot switch off phone by removing battery when your phone freezes. Also cannot replace the battery or use spare battery when battery performance is degarded.

    Short Battery Standby Time: 4.4 Days(Average: 16.7 Days)With short battery standby time, you have to charge your phone after a period of time even if it was in idle condition.

    Short Battery Talk: Time7 Hours(Average: 8.1 Hours)With short battery talk time, you won’t be able to talk continously on the phone for a long period of time without charging

    Motorola Moto G
    DISADVANTAGES
    No Memory Card Support: Memory cards give your device more storage capacity. So you can store more songs, photos and videos.

    Doesn’t Have A Gyroscope: Gyroscope Determines orientation and rotation and provides more accurate 3D motion tracking than an accelerometer.

    Non-Removable Battery: Cannot switch off phone by removing battery when your phone freezes. Also cannot replace the battery or use spare battery when battery performance is degarded.

    • March 3, 2014 at 1:04 am

      Hello Aditi,

      Among the 3 phones you have mentioned, Motorola Moto G is the best. Buy the 16 GB version so you will get more space. And the phone’s performance is great, it doesn’t freezes at all. It has good battery life.

    • February 22, 2014 at 1:17 pm

      Hello Nagesh,

      iberry Auxus Nuclea N1 has the largest battery. But Moto G has an amazing battery backup. With medium to heavy use, its battery last for a day and needs charging only once. The Nuclea N1 can deliver a little better.

  • Rajesh
    February 20, 2014 at 2:03 pm

    I would like to go for Moto G, but you told that camera is not upt mark.. I have xolo q800, and camera quality is acceptable to me,, is moto G 5MP matching the camera quality of xoloq800 (8mp..but non brand)…

    I can spent upto 17000

    • February 22, 2014 at 1:11 pm

      Hello Rajesh,

      Moto G is amazing. It has a lower 5 MP camera which is very decent being 5 MP. You may have to compromise over the camera quality as it might not match up with Xolo’s 8 MP camera. But you can not get the performance like Moto G with any other phone upto 17 or 20 k. Just amazing. I am using it. Camera is satisfying.

  • roni
    February 17, 2014 at 7:43 pm

    bro.. i am confused between Moto G, xolo q1000s, xolo q1000 opus, iberry Auxus Nuclea N1. actually my requirements are android+good camera with options+HD/FullHD video recording+good gaming+wifi hotspot with good battery & connectivity. PLZ suggest me the best 1 or if u hv any other in ur mind… tnx bro

    • February 22, 2014 at 11:53 am

      Hello Roni,

      If you can adjust a little over camera just buy Moto G. With Xolo or any other brand you will get a bigger camera but you will absolutely miss out on the amazing and unmatched performance. Its very good for gaming and connectivity.

  • February 12, 2014 at 11:38 am

    Hi Rahul,

    Thanks for suggesting these phones. Please can you help me out in buying a phone in range 15 k which have good perfomance as well as good camera quality in a low light. With these phones i found that camera quality which the companies boast of will not match upto the expectation.

    Thanks and Regards
    Pracheer

    • February 16, 2014 at 3:29 pm

      Hello Pracheer,

      If you want performance then Moto G is the best competing even with the phones of 25,000 range. But you will not get the best camera with Moto G, still being just 5 MP it does a decent job it has good colour reproduction. Another option with a better camera will be Micromax Canvas Magnus (12 MP) but as you said the cameras with these brands are not upto the mark. I too was confused like you but considering the great performance delivered by Moto G, I have ordered one for myself :-)

          • February 25, 2014 at 4:58 am

            Hello Akhik,

            Moto G is best.

          • March 5, 2014 at 10:03 pm

            The phone will just switch off. When you plug in the charger it will start again. And if you want to ask what will happen when the battery stops working efficiently, as it is non-removable, you need to contact the service centres to replace the battery.
