Sometimes, and typically in the Indian context, your budget for buying a smartphone may not go above 4 digits, and that’s okay. It is a very price-sensitive market, and smartphone makers know that the under Rs 10,000 market in the country is actually large. Xiaomi and Honor have been able to successfully capitalise on this, while Indian brands such as Micromax or Lava, though initially very big, have not been able to keep up with their Chinese counterparts. All of them do offer 4G mobile devices below the 10,000 mark though. So if you are in the market with a low budget, here are the best 4G mobiles under 10,000 for you.
Redmi Note 5
The base variant of the Redmi Note 5 actually starts at a very low price, so that makes the device a perfect buy for those of you who are on a tight budget. The Redmi Note 5 happens to have some of the best specs for a smartphone that is priced at Rs 9,999. It comes with the Snapdragon 626 chipset along with 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of internal storage, with the option of increasing the storage using a micro-SD card.
The Redmi Y2 is another great phone that comes out of the Redmi stable. This makes the phone a very good buy mostly because of the specs offered for a price of Rs 9,999 and also for the great selfie features that are present in the 16 MP front-facing camera of the device. It also has a Snapdragon 625 chipset and 3 GB of RAM along with expandable storage. There is also a 4 GB RAM and 64 GB internal storage variant. The phone runs Android 8.1 overlayed with Xiaomi’s custom MIUI 9.5.
The recently unveiled Realme 2 is a breath of fresh air in a market that is dominated by phones with a plastic back. The amazing build quality of the Realme 2 along with a Snapdragon 450 chipset means that at a price of Rs 8,990 the device enjoys all the great hardware features that are also offered in the Snapdragon 600 series as well.
The Honor 7C is definitely one to consider when you have budget that is slightly below that Rs 10,000. The Honor 7C was launched in two variants — a 3 GB RAM with 32 GB storage variant priced at Rs 9,999 and a 4 GB RAM variant with 64 GB storage priced at Rs 11,999. As far as specifications go, the phone features a 5.99-inch HD+ (720×1440 pixels) IPS display along with a 2.5D curved glass on top. Inside, it is powered by an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 chipset and features a 3,000 mAh battery unit.
Clearly, consumers are spoilt for choice even in this range. Regardless of the one you pick, remember to sell your used smartphone on Cashify before you upgrade!
