      Hello Pabitra,

      I so glad for your response. And yeah considering the price Moto E is offering very great options.

      And feature like Gorilla Glass 3 and QHD screen is very cool. And I checked fiipkart.

      Thought the phone is out of stock. But it is still priced at Rs. 6,999

    Hi Abhishek,
    Wow what an article. I have an iPhone . . . but it is interesting to see what else is out there. I am a Windows person, but for some reason I jumped over to Apple for the phone and am a dedicated iPhone user.

    But wow you showed some choices for people.

    I didn’t know the info you talk about under the Micromax Canvas section. Really? You said “Micromax said it was going to release new Canvas smartphones every month.” I really did not know that any company would even think of doing that. You know in iPhone land that never happens. And, I am glad. I like knowing that what I have is not going to be obsolete in the next few months.

    Then you expanded and said Samsung releases new phones frequently. I did not know this. I am a little isolated with the iPhone. So, this is very interesting.

    Abhishek, this is a lot of research. Good job on an informative post.

      Ohh! Thank You very much Barb,

      You really are one of those person who not only appreciates an article but also the writer’s research and hard work behind it.

      And to tell you the truth, since you use an iPhone, you don’t really have to worry about anything. Because you’re really on a safe land with an iPhone.

      But then in country like India, an iPhone really costs 20-30% more as compared to its price in US. And only the rich people have the resources to buy it. But then Android phones have opened a great options for smartphones under very tight budget.

      And yeah, Micromax is third largest Phone Company in India and 12th largest in the whole world. And they keep putting up new smartphones every month. But the phone I listed here is one of the best in the budget we’re talking about. So I had to include it.

      And yeah, you can see, Samsung too keeps dishing out new smartphones and tablets every other month. It’s a strategy called carpet bombing.

      And really thanks for the response. I appreciate it a lot.

      Hello Kuldeep,

      And Yeah I did took your thoughts in positive sense. And I’m glad you raised your voice.

      To tell the truth, most of the list I’ve seen on other site; aren’t well researched. And are just there to be there.

      But every phone I’ve listed here, I’ve used them, played with them and tested them too. And hence I’ve come with a result.

      And yeah, I accept, the website name contain tricks. And will definitely come up with more and more tricks.

    I am surprised to see XOLO’s mobile in top5 instead of Samsung’s mobile. I mean, are you sure that there is not a great phone from Samsung in the range of 10K better than Xolo mobiles mentioned here.
    I would say, Motorola Moto E is really a great phone. I recommend this phone at #1 instead of Nokia Lumia 525. As Android 4.0 is always better than Windows 8.1 (personal opinion).
    Anyways, thanks for sharing it on Kingged.com.

      Hello Sandeep,

      I am glad you’re concerned about the brands. But honestly telling, there isn’t a phone from Samsung stable that would even have a chance against the Xolo Q700S.

      And regarding the 1st place. I’ve taken many factors into consideration. And the biggest problem with Android is; when you starting installing a large number of apps. The OS starts to slow down. And even the camera isn’t upto the mark. And many things were too considered.

    Seems like you’ve listed out all the latest smartphones which are under 10K, actually I was kinda checking new mobiles in the budget to purchase for my brother as a gift.

    Thanks for share

      Hey Hello Samir, Thanks for the comment.

      And to tell the truth, there are probably more than 300 smartphone models that come under 5,000-10,000 bracket.

      And I think, I’ve listed the best one.

    This year saw a huge increase in low range smartphone keeping in mind the growing needs and expectations of the user from a smartphone.

    Moto E and Nokia Lumia 525 created great heat among the ‘ under 10k ” section. But, sadly Lumia 525 seems to be getting quite a lot of complains about the heating issue during gaming. Many folks have reported that it gets heated up after 10-20 minutes of gaming. Moreover, Nokia Lumia is highly popular for it’s advanced camera technology but still they came up with an average 5 MP cam for 525. After all, What more can we expect for a 10k smartphone :D

    Well, Isn’t HTC Desire 210 fit to enter this list ?

    Good list Abhishek :)

    Hi there,

    That’s another blazing post from you! The reasons behind the appreciation are the efforts and the research you do before writing any post. I’ve to learn a lot from you! :-)

    You made a good decision by not including Samsung in this list. They are not fit for budget smartphones. Even if they launch some, the specifications are far less as compared to its rival companies!

    Another good decision was the inculsion of two Xolo smartphones. They’re really good at making cheap and quality smartphones.

    I am amazed to see that you’ve included Micromax. They just rebrand devices purchased from Chinese OEMs. Thus, though the specifications are attractive, the quality is at its worst. How about including Sony Xpera E/M in its place?

    Asus is a new smartphone company. But, let me be honest! The reviews have freaked me out! The specifications are just…..MIND BLOWING! And the hands-on reviews as well are positive! Your research is perfect! The smartphone truly deserves the crown! :-)

    No more words to say! Have a nice day!
