There are too many smartphones available in the Indian markets and majority of the customers have a limited budget of up to Rs. 10000. So here is the list of best smartphones that you can buy for under Rs. 10,000 in India.

A user should buy the handset based on his/her usage. There are different kind of users, for example normal user, gaming users, music lover, camera lover and selfie lover.  There are a huge number of customers among these category who are looking for the best smartphone under Rs. 10,000 price range.

Since the usage pattern of users are different it makes sense to choose the handset based on your usage pattern and with the features that you would be using the most. For example if a reviewer says that the handset heats up when playing games, for normal user, music lover, selfie lover, camera lover it is not going to make any difference.

Also don’t believe in drop test done by some reviewers on a non-rugged smartphone, logically makes no sense. The non-rugged handset may survive a drop from 10 feet without any scratches or it can get totally damaged from just 1 feet height, it’s all about luck.

So let’s gets started here are the best smartphones you can get under Rs. 10,000.

Best Smartphone under Rs. 10,000

CoolPad Cool 1

I had already done the review of this handset. This is a cool handset with dual camera that shoots impressive DSLR type pictures. The best thing is that as of now it is available for under Rs. 10,000. Best phone for those looking for budget friendly high performing camera phone.

This handset is using Snapdragon 652 octa core processor.  There  were some users complaining about the performance, lags etc., I did not find any such issues on the handset that I bought for the review.

Cool 1 best phone

So CoolPad Cool 1 is the best for under Rs. 10,000 for its excellent dual cameras using wide aperture mode. I would also want to point out that this has the LeEco logo as it is the largest shareholder of Coolpad. LeEco company is not doing well as of now. However there should not be any issues with the CoolPad company or at least this Cool 1 model, but I don’t think it will get any future software updates – so consider that too.
