Today's world is moving at a rapid speed and it's astonishing to see how technological advancement are impacting our lives. We are in an era where in every few days we see a new technological advancement. To cope up with this speed of growth and be at par with the technologies available we need to continuously upgrade our gadgets.

Everyone would love to have the best gadgets available in the market but these gadgets are really high priced. We need to have a trade-off between the best technology and low price. Not everyone has a budget of Rs.30,000 for buying a phone. Most people like to have phone for around Rs.10000 which should have most of the high end features and functionality.

Here are a list of few budget phones for rupees 5000-10000  which have features at par with the high end phones.

Micromax Canvas Lite A92  - This is one the best phones that are available at the sub-Rs.10,000 range. Some of the key features of this phone are -

  • 5 MP Primary Camera
  • Dual SIM
  • 5.0-inch IPS LCD Capacitive Touchscreen
  • Android v4.1.2 (Jelly Bean) OS
  • 1 GHz Dual Core Processor

Micromax canvas lite A92 provides a really amazing experience for a regular mobile user. It has a Dual SIM card facility which most of the phones don't offer. It has  5 MP primary camera which is the best in this range. A good processor and 5.0 inch IPS touch screen makes it one of the best combination. 

2. Nokia Lumia 520 - Nokia lumia 520 is one of the better phones in the sub-Rs.10,000 category. It is priced a bit higher than the Micromax canvas lite A92.

  1. That's a very informative and a well written post. I am sure it will of help to many people who are looking for a perfect phone in an affordable price :)

  2. I am waiting for sub 5k phones...

  3. Hi Gaurab,
    I have a suggestion. You should include the RAM along with the phone specifications. RAM is one of the important features of the phone. And I have seen that most of the low priced phones have low RAM, which is a major advantage. I think you should give more importance to this.

  4. Thanks Gaurab for the informative post but you haven't given Exact price of the phones.

  5. Very informative post Gaurab. I recently bought Asus Zenfone 5. Another smart budget phone.

  6. Hokay!! WHERE IS THE MENTION OF MOTO G Mr. Gaurab? :D It's the BEST phone!! Even a Samsung note can't beat it! :)

  7. The micromax one sounds pretty cool Gaurab. I have never really fancied Nokia, esp with Windows it seems like they made the choice easier. I would rather go with something having an android support which is much faster.
