This year has been great in terms of phones, especially if we consider just low-cost smartphones .
There are devices existing in the market that have the latest mid-range processors, priced affordably. The Asus Zenfone Max Pro M1 is the most recent example of one such phone. But unfortunately, it costs Rs 11,000 while we are listing phones under Rs 10,000.
Moreover, there is a lot to come in the coming days. We were expecting the Moto G6 series to debut under the given budget, but the cheapest it could go is Rs 11,999 with the G6 Play. If you’re fine with a phone that offers good value for money and handles mild usage with ease, you can take a look the phones below.
They are priced under Rs 10,000 and do everything you expect from a phone at this range.
For just Rs 9,999, the Redmi Note 5 replaces the Note 4 for the top spot. The new phone is an update over its predecessor. It has a 18:9 display with a slightly better camera and software optimisations. The smartphone has everything that one expects from a phone of this range.
The Snapdragon 625 with 3GB RAM is good enough sail through intensive usage with a phenomenal full day battery life.
