Best Phones under Rs 6,000 in India (2019) | Best Gadgetry

best phones under rs 6000 in India

Looking for an affordable phone around Rs 6,000? We’ve compiled a list of the 7 best smartphones under Rs 6,000 for this month in India. Some of these handsets are decently equipped with a good processor, RAM, and display.

We’ve only considered phones with at least HD (720p) display, 2GB RAM and Android 7.0 and above. Also, since the competition is too fierce in this segment with almost every manufacturer offering the same specs, we’ve handpicked the best ones that stand out from the crowd. While you might not receive the latest Android on these models, they should be able to run day-to-day tasks without any hiccups.

While making the list, we kept a simple criterion. If the phone comes with Android 8 and above, great. Otherwise, we’ve only picked models with at least 3GB RAM. Why? Because we did not want a list with 18 models when all of them are practically the same.

So here are the best phones under 6k for this month. Also, check the best smartphones under Rs 8,000 and the top 10 smartphones under Rs 5,000.

 

These are the best phones under Rs 6,000 in India (2019):

 

Panasonic Eluga Ray 530

Panasonic Eluga Ray 530

What’s good:
This Panasonic is rather well equipped. It offers some class-leading specs like 3GB RAM, 32GB storage, fingerprint scanner, and 13MP & 5MP snappers. There’s also Android 8.0 onboard here.

 

What could have been better:
Let’s just say the 6739 isn’t the fastest.

Xiaomi Redmi 6A

redmi 6a

What’s good:
While we’re sad that there’s no 3GB variant, like for like, the Redmi 6A is a significant improvement over the Redmi 5A, especially on the processor front. It also comes with Android 8.1 out of the box which is great. The model that retails for Rs 7,000 comes with 32 gigs of storage.

 

What could have been better:
No 3GB RAM variant :(. And there’s no fingerprint scanner either.

Asus ZenFone Lite L1

Asus ZenFone Lite L1

What’s good:
While the Max M1 competes with the Redmi 6, this one takes on the Redmi 6A. For Rs 6,000, you get 2GB RAM, 16GB storage, a decent 3,000mAh battery and 13MP and 5MP snappers. Snapdragon 430 under 6k is a really good option too.

 

What could have been better:
Sadly, like the Redmi 6A, there’s no fingerprint scanner.

Honor 7S

Honor 7S

What’s good:
Well, the Honor 7S comes with Android 8.1 out of the box, so that’s great. It seems like a jack of all trades to us, yet masters none. The processor is better than the 6737 everyone else seems to carry but slightly below the Snapdragon 425.

 

What could have been better:
Nothing for the asking price.

iVooMi Me3S

iVooMi Me3S

What’s good:
Less known brand, but plenty many happy users if you read the reviews on e-commerce websites. This phone stands out for its 3GB RAM, 32 gigs of internal storage that can be expanded via dedicated microSD slot, a selfie flash, and lastly, a fingerprint scanner.

 

What could have been better:
We’re not sure of after-sales service in smaller cities.

We like the Yu Ace for its design, a large battery, above average processor, and a fingerprint scanner. Oh, also Android 8.0.

Infinix Smart 2

Infinix Smart 2

What’s good:
Not a very common name, but Infinix is, you guessed it, a Chinese vendor that has been making smartphones since 2013. Talking about the Infinix Smart 2 in particular, it is one of the few phones with Android 8.0 on board. The Processor is also a step up over the usual 6737 seen in this budget. The battery size seems decent too.

 

What could have been better:
While the phone has over 10,000 reviews, we’ve not heard much about it to be honest.
