Best phones under Rs 14,000 in India (2018) – Best Gadgetry

best phones under 14000

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 15000 and the top 10 smartphones under Rs 12,000.

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, the bigger the aperture and sensor size, better is the camera. Which means the 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 stabilization, which helps in reducing blur.
