From a features and specifications perspective, expensive smartphones are frequently more attractive, yet the budget sector sees the majority of sales. Many people can now afford to buy smartphones since mobile data is getting more affordable. These days, even inexpensive smartphones include all the capabilities you’d find on more costly models, such as 4G connectivity, fingerprint scanners, high-resolution displays, and decent cameras.
Here is a list of the top mobile phones available right now that are under Rs. 10,000.
Micromax In 2b
The Micromax In 2b may not be a master of all trades, but it excels in a few areas, elevating it above rival smartphones. It uses basic hardware but comes with a Unisoc T610 SoC, a processor that has only been found in a small number of cellphones worldwide. Unexpectedly, the processor proved to be somewhat capable, performing admirably for everyday tasks and some light gaming—something unheard of in the entry-level mobile market. The software performance is quite slick owing to Android 11 and the absence of bloatware and third-party apps. With some gaming, the 5,000mAh battery efficiently runs for one and a half days, which is excellent.
Realme Narzo 30A
In Realme Narzo 30A, the fingerprint scanner is situated in the rear and is conveniently located. Additionally, the placement of the side-mounted power and volume controls is ideal. The 6.5-inch screen of the Realme Narzo 30A has a respectably large 20:9 aspect ratio. It contains two Nano-SIM slots and a specific slot for storage expansion, and the SIM tray is placed on the left side of the phone. With a large 6,000mAh battery inside, the Narzo 30A tips its weight at 207g and is distinctly heavy.
