Best Budget Phone Under 10000

Yu Yureka Plus    Rs. 9999
The Yu Yureka Plus, which was launched back in July this year, has already made it to the list of best camera phones under Rs. 15,000 and is now one of the best smartphones under Rs. 10,000 as well. The smartphone after going through rigorous tests gave impressive results and got an overall rating of 9/10 in all the sections except in design and battery life where it settled for 8/10. Available for as low as Rs. 8,999, the Yureka Plus smartphone runs on Cyanogen OS 12.1.


Good
  • Improved display and camera
  • Great performance
  • Customisable Cyanogen OS
  • Excellent value for money
Bad
  • Nothing significant considering the price

Lenovo k3 note  Rs. 9999

The Lenovo K3 Note is one of those devices that really gets its essentials correct. In terms of everyday usage, its competence is unquestionable. It has a good display, very good audio output, a decent camera unit, and possibly the best performance in terms of lightweight usage that any smartphone within the sub-10k budget segment has to offer. The only place where it misses out is the below-par gaming performance. If your priority is for a smoothly-functioning Android smartphone which will see you through the day’s essentials without breaking a sweat and saving some battery too, the Lenovo K3 Note is your phone. Alternatively, the Meizu M2 Note makes for a better device at the same price point, giving similar or better performance, along with featuring a better display and  camera.

Good

Bad

  • Throttled gaming performance

Coolpad Note 3          Rs. 8999

Coolpad Note 3 is a comparatively a newcomer as it was launched in October this year. The smartphone fared well in our review, scoring a 9/10 rating for value of money. We were impressed by the smartphone's quick and accurate fingerprint sensor, camera, battery life and overall performance. However, the UI customisations were not up to the mark. The handset is available for Rs. 8,999 from leading online retailers.

  • Quick and accurate fingerprint sensor

Bad
  • Limited availability
  • Unappealing UI customisations
