Disclaimer: Only Android phones are listed
There was a time when only Nokia existed. Providing a phone as cheap as 500 bucks to high end ones as technology progressed. Slowly but steadily, BlackBerry came into picture for the business class and iPhone, well, for the lack of a better term, the rich ones.
Since the launch of Android, there has now been a plethora of phones in the market and many companies have come up with their “mid-range” devices to battle for the majority market share.
Here are our top 5 pics from the 10k to 20k range which you should keep your eyes on to buy.
OnePlus One (Rs. 18,999)
There’s no doubt OnePlus One was a “Flagship Killer” phone when it was launched mid 2014. With high end specs including a high end Snapdragon 2.5GHz Quad-core processor and 3GB RAM which by the way no other phone provided except Mi4 which was later released in the year. It also includes a decent 13MP Sony camera sensor which is able to click good shots. And after all of that, it was powered by one of the earliest and most customizable modification of Android by Cyanogen. Of course a few hiccups aside, this is one of the phones to keep your eyes on.
Xiaomi Mi 4 (Rs. 17,999)
Starting from a 18k price tag, Xiaomi has won many hearts of Indian consumers. I don’t think anyone would be there who wouldn’t know about those flash sales which happened of it’s previous phones last year. Selling within seconds, it’s predecessor Mi 3 was loved by many. Mi 4, packing similar specs as the OnePlus One is available at a lesser rate than that, of course also cutting some corners.
Samsung Galaxy S4 (Rs. 17,999)
Yes! You heard that right folks! The Galaxy S4, launched at over 40,000 about two years ago has dropped it’s price to less than half. With 2GB RAM, the first Octa core processor and an Infrared Port to control all your electronic devices, this phone has you covered!
Motorola G (2nd Edition) (Rs. 12,999)
Another favorite of the masses! Powering a powerful Snapdragon Quad Core processor at 1.2GHz, 1 GB RAM and a 8MP Camera, this is one of those sturdy phones you can buy for 13,000
HTC Desire 526G Plus (Rs. 10,588)
A low end in terms of price, but HTC delivers it’s promise of good build quality with one of the most appreciated skins in the world of Android, Sense UI! Although it’s a little modified in this one. Packing an Octa-Core, 4.7″ screen and 8MP camera with dual sim compatibility, Indians don’t need to search far to find it’s heavenly feel!
