best phones under 14000

Which is the best phone under 14000 in India?

We’ve made a list of the 10 best smartphones under Rs 14,000 you can find in India for this month. The entry of Chinese players has ensured that these phones offer acceptable performance on the camera, battery, and performance front. We’ve only covered 4G handsets in the list that work on Airtel, Vodafone and other networks such as Jio. Just to clarify, 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’s a disadvantage.

So, here are the best phones under 14k. Also, check the best smartphones under Rs 14000 and the top 10 smartphones under Rs 12,000.

What’s good:
Moto G5 Plus is an all round package. It doesn’t excel exceptionally in any area, but isn’t bad in any department either. The large aperture on the back should allow some good photography. It will also get updated to Android 8.0 for sure.

 

What could have been better:
Nothing really. Maybe the fact that the G5S Plus is a better phone and costs only Rs 1,000 more.

Not to confuse you with the camera specs listed above. We’ve listed the specs as (megapixels), (aperture), (OIS-if present), (sensor size). Generally speaking, bigger the aperture and sensor size, better is the camera. Which means smaller number in the denominator, the bigger the aperture or sensor size is. For example, f/1.9 is a bigger aperture and than f/2.0. Also 1/2.2″ is a bigger sensor than, say, 1/2.6″. A bigger aperture camera performs much better in low light situations and produces sharper images. It also produces a better brokeh. Also, OIS refers to optical image stabilisation, which helps in reducing blur.
