[jumbotron heading=”#Please Read:”]We believe that specifications of the phones just tell the half story, a great user experience matters more than great specifications. So, while preparing this list we have considered everything, the specifications, hardware, software (UI), real-world performance, user experience, brand value, after sales service and more. We see a phone as a complete package which should at the end deliver great satisfaction to the user and our rankings are based on the same principles. We consider every phone from biggest to the smallest brands and give our honest opinions.[/jumbotron]

We would like to mention that Huawei Honor 6 Plus is a great phone out there which is hard to ignore while buying a phone around this price. Its rear camera is currently one of the best in the world. It would have been at the 6th spot if this list contained more phones.

    Hi Rahul, your review was very helpful.

    I would like to buy a phone with smaller form factor with decent specifications and I have narrowed it down to two, 1. Samsung Galaxy Alpha 2. Sony Xperia Z3 Compact.

    My only concern about the Z3 Compact is the self cracking screen reported by many users.

    Which of these 2 would you suggest to buy? If there is any other phone apart from these 2 please, let me know.

    Thanks for the review!

    I’m planning to buy a smartphone in Rs. 15-25K range with pretty good camera (capable of low light photography, optical image stabilization, video recording), battery backup, decent performance with basic apps (facebook, whatsapp, banking apps etc., no games) and good after-sales service. Please suggest a good phone for me.
