top phones under 10000

What are the best phones under 10000 in India?

There are just way too many phones around Rs 10,000, so it’s nothing less of a daunting task to pick the best one. We’ve compiled a list of 10 best smartphones under Rs 10,000 for this month, so your task becomes easier. These include only 4G models since it doesn’t make sense getting an only 3G phone anymore. To make things clear, phones with hybrid SIM slot allow you to either place a second SIM or a microSD card, but not both at the same time. So, it can be considered a disadvantage.

So here are the ten best 4G phones under 10k for this month. Also, check the best smartphones under Rs 15,000 and the top 10 smartphones under Rs 13,000.

Not to confuse you with the camera specs listed above, we’ve listed the specs as (megapixels), and (aperture), Generally speaking, bigger the aperture, better is the camera. Which means smaller number in the denominator, the bigger the aperture is. For example, f/1.9 is a bigger aperture and than f/2.0. A bigger aperture camera performs much better in low light situations and produces sharper images. It also produces a better brokeh.
