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.

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 (2018):

 

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.

10.or D2

best phones under 6000 rs in India - 10.or E

What’s good:
The reason why we have this on the list is because this is a brand belonging to Amazon. The phone offers decent features like a decent processor, 3GB RAM, 32gigs of storage, and Android 8.0 out of the box.

 

What could have been better:
No fingerprint scanner folks.

10.or E sold

best phones under rs 7,000 - 10.or E

What’s good:
While the name does sound a bit difficult on the tongue, 10.or is Amazon’s own brand so we’re assuming top notch quality. For the asking price, the 10.or E offers 3GB RAM, 32 gigs of storage, a pretty decent processor and a large battery.

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.
