2. Xiaomi Mi A1:

Few years ago, Google introduced Android One which was a good concept but unfortunately did not do quite well. But now, Xiaomi has launched its first ever Android One smartphone in partnership with Google and as expected from Xiaomi, it is a feature rich smartphone with great promising hardware and software. Two of the biggest highlights of the Mi A1 are, it being an Android One smartphone and its dual rear camera setup at the back. As it is an Android One smartphone, powered by Google, it runs on the pure stock Android 7.1.2 Nougat with Android 8 Oreo update promised in 2017, the good things does not end here, it will also be one of the first… Expand Review

phones in the world to get the Android ‘P’ update when it is launched in later half of 2018. It includes all the popular Google services, Google Assistant and offers free unlimited high quality photo backups in the Google Photos app,  which is the default gallery app. The UI is absolutely clean with no bloatware and retains just 3 of Xiaomi’s apps – Camera app, Remote (for IR blaster) and MI Store app. Now, coming to the very important dual rear cameras, it packs two 12 MP sensors on the back, out of which one is a wide-angle lens with 1.25μm pixel size, f/2.2 aperture and the other is the telephoto lens (usually seen in high end devices). It offers 2x optical zoom, PDAF, dual-LED flash and 4K video recording. The picture quality is just amazing and in the Portrait mode, it clicks wonderful pictures with DSLR like bokeh effects, which looks real and sharp focus on the subject. The company claims that its dual cameras are better than that of the iPhone 7 Plus and the OnePlus 5, while it may not be entirely true but one thing is for sure, the cameras are great and can certainly go neck to neck with all the flagship smartphones in terms of the portrait mode, and especially at this price, they are absolutely the best. However, under low/artificial light, there can be some visible grains but, no complaints at its price tag. The Mi A1 packs a 5 MP f/2 aperture front camera with Beautify 3.0 and also clicks good selfies. Coming to the design, it comes in a slim metal unibody which is well built and premium. The antenna lines nicely stick to the edges like the iPhone 7 and the phone looks very beautiful. With rounded edges on the back, it is comfortable to hold, also it comes with a fingerprint resistant coating on the back. It sports a 5.5 inches full HD display which has good quality and nice viewing angles, it comes with 450 nits brightness. It runs on the popular, powerful and reliable 2.0 GHz octa core Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor paired with 4 GB RAM and Adreno 506 GPU. The performance of this processor is tested and widely approved for its efficiency. It handles heavy games, multitasking and day to day usage smoothly. Thanks to the processor, the phone doesn’t heat much and for additional heat management, it comes with two pyrolytic graphite sheets. It includes a fast fingerprint scanner on the back, an Infrared blaster to let you control electronic devices like Tv, A.C, etc., and USB Type-C. For music lovers, it comes with 10V smart power amplifier and provides rich audio quality via the headphones. It is a dual sim phone with 4G, VoLTE support and comes with 64 GB of internal storage, which can be expanded upto 128 GB via microSD, using hybrid slot. It is backed by a non-removable Li-Ion 3080 mAh battery which delivers good battery backup and support fast charging.

Should you buy?
Overall, the Xiaomi Mi A1 is a redefining smartphone. It packs dual rear cameras with optical zoom and great picture quality like the high end smartphones. It also comes with latest & stock Android, good and powerful performance, beautiful premium design and many other features. It is a great complete package and offers pretty much for its price and can easily be the top pick at this price. And if the rear cameras are most important for you, you should pick it over the Moto G5S Plus.

The best selling smartphone in India, the Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 (4 GB) is also available at Rs. 12,999.

3. Lenovo K8 Note:

Lenovo has skipped the K7 Note and has launched directly the K8 Note (after the K6 Note) as it believes it has added features to the new smartphone which are one generation ahead, compared to the competition. Let’s see how true it is and how well the Lenovo K8 Note puts itself against some of the most popular smartphones in the budget segment. Starting with the design, the K8 Note packs a metal unibody design made up of series 6000 aluminium and feels premium, it has also got a 2.5D curved Corning Gorilla Glass 3 on the front. Looks wise, it has similar design like most of the metal unibody smartphones out there but it still looks good… Expand Review

It sports a 5.5 inches full HD display which has very good display quality. When it comes to performance, the K8 Note packs a some big numbers. It is powered by the new 2.3 GHz Deca-core Mediatek Helio X23 processor paired with 3/4 GB RAM and Mali-T880 MP4 GPU. When it comes to actual performance, we all know Qualcomm processors are much more efficient and reliable however, the Helio X23 is also powerful processor and manages to handle day to usage and multitasking smoothly. It also plays games well however, there can be some very minimal lags for the heaviest games but they are still very much playable, also the temperatures remain under control while gaming. Another department where the K8 Note shines is the camera. It packs a dual rear camera setup on the back which includes one 13 MP and one 5 MP camera, both the cameras work simultaneously to click beautiful pictures, the 13 MP camera captures the subject while the 5 MP camera captures additional details and depth and produces bokeh effect. It comes with depth effect which provides lots of options and allows you to cut out the subject and change the background. The picture quality is very good with accurate colors and high depth of field, it goes neck to neck with the Moto G5 Plus in terms of picture quality and even gets an upper hand at times. In low light conditions also, it manages to click good images but there can be some noise at times. On the front, there is a 13 MP camera which also comes with LED flash and clicks beautiful good quality selfies. The phone runs on the latest Android 7.1.1 Marshmallow and the good thing here is, with the K8 Note, Lenovo has decided to get rid of its customised Vibe UI and will use Stock Android for all its smartphones starting with the K8 Note. This will ensure a better user experience and probably faster Android updates like its Motorola smartphones. The phone packs a fast fingerprint scanner on the back, it also comes with Dolby Atmos support for better audio experience and also supports Lenovo’s TheatreMax, which provides great VR and 360 degree video experience by allowing you to view your normal videos in VR mode. It also comes with a dedicated music key which allows you to play, pause or change songs without even opening the lock or taking the phone out of pocket. A great thing is that, the music key is completely customisable and can be set to open any application like camera, clock, maps, etc. if you don’t want to use it for music. The phone also comes with water repellent nano coating for additional protection. It comes with dual sim and 4G, VoLTE support. It comes in two storage variants – 32 GB and 64 GB, both of which are expandable up to 128 GB and thankfully uses a dedicated slot for the microSD card and the two sim cards. The phone packs a big 4000 mAh battery which delivers good battery backup and comes with fast charging support. One area where the company could have added some more efforts is weight management. The K8 Note with 4000 mAh battery weighs at 180 grams however, company’s own Lenovo P2 with 5100 mAh battery weighs 177 grams. Although it is still manageable and not a turn off.

Should you buy?
Overall, the Lenovo K8 Note is a really feature packed smartphone. Be it the excellent dual rear cameras, front camera, performance, multimedia capabilities, stock Android, big battery or all the other features, it ticks all the boxes right and offers everything one can expect from a budget smartphone. It truly delivers a wonderful experience and is currently one of the best phones under 15000 Rs. and if you value multimedia more, it should definitely be your preferred choice under 15000 Rs.

4. Coolpad Cool Play 6:

Coolpad launched its Cool1 Dual at the very beginning of this year and it became one of the first phones to come with a dual rear camera setup under 15000 Rs. and now, the company has launched the Cool Play 6, which is the first phone under 15000 Rs. to have 6 GB of RAM. Not only this, but it packs some promising specs also. Let’s see how the phone actually is. It comes in a solid premium metallic design which is sturdy and beautiful however, this time also, it has a close resemblance with the LeEco Le 2 (for the uninitiated, LeEco is the biggest shareholder in Coolpad and they work together… Expand Review

for the phones in ‘Cool’ series). It sports a 5.5 inches full HD screen which has good display quality. It is powered by the 1.95 GHz octa core Qualcomm Snapdragon 653 processor paired with 6 GB RAM and Adreno 510 GPU. It is a powerful processor than the Snapdragon 625, and handles multitasking and heavy gaming well but, unlike the Snapdragon 625 it heats up as well, although it is manageable. Ideally the 6 GB of RAM should provide ample breathing space even when many heavy apps are running simultaneously but, thanks to its new UI, it lags at times. It runs on Android 7.1 Nougat based company’s new Journey UI, which is another heavily customised interface from the company and comes with features such as Dual apps, which is considered quite useful these days and Apple’s 3D touch like popup menu on notification icons. The Journey UI also comes with lots of other features but it needs more optimisations (& OTA updates) to work smoothly without visible lags on day to day apps. The biggest highlight of the phone is the dual camera set up at the back. It packs two 13 MP Sony sensors, one is color and the other is monochrome sensor, which captures depth and additional details. The picture quality is excellent for its price. It comes with an 8 MP front camera with f/2.2 aperture which again captures good quality selfies. In total it is a good camera phone. It includes a good fingerprint scanner on the back. The Cool Play 6 is a dual sim phone with 4G, VoLTE and comes with 64 GB internal storage but doesn’t include the microSD slot for storage expansion. It also comes with Infrared and USB Type-C. It is backed by a massive non-removable Li-Ion 4060 mAh battery which delivers good battery backup and also supports fast charging.

Should you buy?
Overall, the Coolpad Cool Play 6 is a well designed smartphone with excellent dual cameras, good processor with powerful performance and a big 6 GB RAM, which is the first for this price range. It also offers all the required features along with the latest software. However, it is not a perfect phone and the user experience is not of the top quality like the more popular phones in this price range but still, it can be a very good buy.

The Zenfone 3 ZE520KL is one of the starting model in the Zenfone 3 line up apart from the Zenfone 3 Laser. When compared to the Zenfone 2, the Zenfone 3 comes with great improvements in the design department, both in terms of looks and build quality. It comes with a metal body and a 2.5D curved glass on the front and back, the metallic edges on the side are also rounded, which makes… Expand Review

the phone very comfortable to hold. The back panel has concentric circle design, which gives a good glossy reflection when brought under light. It weighs at 144 grams and has a thickness of 7.7mm.

Asus has also introduced TriTech AF which combines laser, phase detection and continuous auto-focus, which results in really fast auto-focus. It can capture really good quality images and is probably the best camera phone under 15000 Rs. The camera lens is also protected with Sapphire Glass. The 8 MP front camera is also very good. Also, Asus’s camera app is also very feature rich, it has lots of filters and modes and also includes a complete manual mode which lets you adjust the camera’s raw settings the way you want. The phone runs on the latest Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow with Asus’s ZenUI 3.0 running on top. The ZenUI comes with lots of added features and customizations. It has good speakers and a good fingerprint scanner situated at the back. It uses USB Type-C 2.0 for fast data syncing and charging. It is a dual sim phone with 4G support on both the slots. It packs 32 GB of internal storage which is expandable upto 2 TB with a microSD card, using a hybrid slot. It is backed by a non-removable Li-Ion 2650 mAh battery which delivers acceptable battery backup but a bigger battery would have made the phone much better.

Should you buy?
Overall, the Asus Zenfone 3 ZE520KL is a great phone, it packs great design, good performance, excellent cameras and all the latest features and delivers a true flagship like experience. A very good buy at this price.

  2. Cool Pad is better than moto G5 . I think that it is the only phone with 6 GB RAM under 15000 and is also very good for gaming. It event doesn’t hang in asphalt8 at highest graphics setting.What do you think which one is better moto or coolpad ?

  3. HI Rahul .

    Please suggest me , I am confused between lenovo k8 note, Redmi note 4( 4Gb RAM, 64 Memory) and Moto g5 Plus..
    which one is best in battery performance , camera quality, good look and memory storage in the 15k segment

    1. Screen size of Redmi Note 4 is 5.5 in. It is convenient to watch movies and play games. If you want, you can wait for Moto G5S Plus. However, Moto has not been able to maintain it’s quality and I have a Moto G4 Plus which suffers from ghost touch. Service center refuses to repair saying that no Mobile Phone should be used while it is charging. Idiots…

  4. Purchased 2 moto g4 plus . First in May 2016 and Second in January 2017. Both suddenly stop and hang. Didn’t expected from a first ranked smartphone. Tell me what to do. Why this website rank it 1st when it have such problems?

  5. Had a vry bad experience moto x play which i bought before 1 yr…so any good fon without the detachable battery system..under 17000

  16. Hi Rahul,
    I have been using moto g 2nd gen since its launch. There has been minor problems. Now I want a 4G supported phone, I guess MOTO G5 plus could be a good option. But the 3000mAh battery is not much appreciable. Now Honor 6X and Lenovo P2 seem quite interesting too.

    So, will you suggest me the best among three with their cons and pros?

    1. Hi, because of the battery efficient Snapdragon 625 processor the Moto G5 Plus delivers good battery backup. But if you need a serious battery backup, the Lenovo P2 can be a great choice.

      1. Hey Rahul
        I want a phone with good battery power Nd obviously i love shooting so i want a phone with good back Nd front camera.motog5 plus…Could be a good option but i have battery issue with it so will u please suggest me mobile under 16-17000 and compatible with my conditions…!!????????

  17. hi rahul .. i want to buy decent performance phone under 15000 but confused .. should i go for sony xa dual or lg k10 (2017) and yes then there r chinese brands too … like z2 plus and moto g5 plus .. pls suggest.

  18. Hi Rahul,

    Confused between moto g5 plus(32 gb) and redmi note 4(64 gb). Specifications wise redmi note 4 beats moto g5 plus in most of the departments along with price (4k less) but moto comes with brand name and I think build quality will be better as compared to note 4. Please guide. Really confused.

  19. HI Rahul want to know which phone I should buy? moto g4 plus or g5 plus.buget is 15k and g5 plus 16gb is not available so what I do tell me please

    1. Hi, go with the Moto G5 Plus only. You can wait for few days for the 16 GB variant to become available or else go with the 32 GB variant, spending 2k more is not a bad investment for bigger RAM and storage.

  20. Which phone should I choose moto g 4 plus or redmi note 4 ?? Or should I wait for moto g 5 plus. Looking for good camera quality!
