Best Phones Under Rs. 15,000

In the market for a new smartphone? There are a lot of great phones available now across different budgets, and if you’d like to get something for under Rs. 15,000 we have some good picks for you,

These are all phones that have been reviewed and put through our multi-stage testing process. Also, since the hardware at this budget isn’t usually right at the cutting edge, we’re sticking to newer devices – older phones at this budget start to show their age a lot sooner than the high end (and expensive) flagship phones – so we’ve got a firm cut-off of February 2016 for this list, which means any phone launched before that date has not been considered.

We’re looking at the overall performance of the phone, not just any specific category, so there is a bit of variation across the different devices, which means you’ll have to go through the entire list to figure out what works best for you. Read on to see our top picks for phones between Rs. 10,000 and Rs. 15,000, in no particular order.


1. LeEco Le 2
Launched in April, the LeEco Le 2 delivers good performance and battery life at a reasonable price, but its decision to ditch the 3.5-mm adaptor for audio is hard to justify, and its camera is disappointing.  Read More About – LeEco Le 2

2. Lenovo Zuk Z1
The Lenovo Zuk Z1 is a very good all-round pick, which also has an excellent battery. Availability can be a bit of an issue with this phone though, but if you can get one, it’s a great pick.  Read More 

3. Xiaomi RedMi Note 3
The Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 takes the second position in our list of best phones under Rs. 15,000. It loses out to the slightly-better LeEco Le 2, on account of performance, camera and build. The battery life, though, is among the very best for smartphones under Rs.15,000. The 4000mAh battery offers at more than a day’s usage on a single charge. The 16MP rear camera may not be the best, but it takes satisfactory shots. Read More

4. Moto G4 Plus
Motorola has been quite popular in this price bracket, and the Moto G4 Plus is another good pick from the brand. Although the camera could be better, the phone is otherwise a good pick and it’s also one of the better looking phones you can get for the price.  Read More

5. Honor 5C LTE
Rounding out our list is the Honor 5C LTE – it’s got good battery life and design and build quality, but the phone is a bit lacking in the wow factor. It’s still one of the better phones in the price bracket, but it doesn’t really stand out either. Read More

6. OnePlus X

The OnePlus X may have just 16GB internal storage, but it is a very good phone if you are looking for a smaller device. It features the same internal hardware as the OnePlus One, ranking it among the best smartphones under Rs. 15,000. It is a very reliable phone. This is also one of few phones in the budget category to offer a 5-inch display and that too AMOLED. The 13MP rear camera takes very good images and the 8MP front-facing camera is equally impressive.
