Top 5 Best Smartphones Under Rs. 15,000 in India [Feb 2017] - 1

It’s been a month since 2017 started, and already many budget-end smartphones were launched in India. So, I thought of writing about the top 5 best smartphones under 15000 you can buy right away in India.

Note that, I’m considering this list, based on the popularity, the phone specifications, performance, and pricing. You may find a few of the old smartphones in the list, but even in 2017, these smartphones have not lost their popularity. That’s why I’m considering some of the smartphones released in 2016 to this list. Also, I’m focussing more on 15K as a budget [just like as mentioned in the title], so the smartphones below Rs. 10,000 won’t be considered here in this list. I’ll post the top 5 best smartphones under Rs. 10,000 in a different article. For now, let’s start the list of 5 best smartphones under 15K –

The phone was launched last year in China, and recently in India. This phone has everything you need in a high-end smartphone. Let’s take a look at the key specifications –

Huawei Honor 6X

Top 5 Best Smartphones Under Rs. 15,000 in India [Feb 2017] - 3In both India & China, Huawei is dominating with their budget-end & high-end smartphones. Regarding sales in both countries, Huawei is ranking in the top 5 mobile vendors. In China, this smartphone vendor outperformed Apple to take over the second position in 2016 market share.

Well, aren’t these facts enough to consider Huawei as your next mobile brand?

Anyhow, let’s talk about the Huawei Honor 6X – The world’s first budget-end dual rear camera phone. Though HTC One M8 is the first smartphone to incorporate the dual rear camera, it was Huawei who brought a change in the camera segment with the Honor 8 & P9 which also led Apple to launch it’s very own dual rear camera phone – iPhone 7Plus. Most of the smartphones mentioned above are high-end, but Huawei Honor 6X is priced at just Rs. 12,999. Let’s take a look at the key specifications for a better understanding –

  • 5.5′ IPS Full HD display
  • 3/4GB RAM | 32/64GB ROM, Expandable up to 256 GB with microSD card
  • HiSilicon Kirin 655 Octa-core processor [2 cortex with four cores, one with 2.1 GHz, and the other with 1.7GHz]
  • Mail-T830MP2 GPU
  • Android v6.0.1 Marshmallow [Expect Android V7.0 after March]
  • 12MP +2MP Dual rear camera & an 8MP front camera
  • 3,340 mAh battery
  • Starts at Rs. 12,999

For a budget-end dual rear camera phone, these specifications are apt, and for a price tag of 13K, this is the first time, a brand is offering a dual camera on the rear side. If you’re a camera lover and wanted to experience DSLR-like effects whenever you capture something, then you should buy the Honor 6X.

LeEco Le 2

Top 5 Best Smartphones Under Rs. 15,000 in India [Feb 2017] - 4Last year, LeEco launched 2 smartphones Le Max 2 – the flagship & the budget-end Le 2. I got my hands on Le 2 and had been using from last year. There’s only one thing I can say about this phone, I considered it as my secondary phone, and you can expect why I made this decision.

In simple, the device has got a unique UI which you can’t see any other Android smartphone. The phone’s performance is up to the mark for its price tag, and I personally never faced a big time lag in the phone. To make you convince, let me read out the specifications –

  • 5.5′ IPS Full HD display
  • 3GB RAM | 32/64GB ROM
  • 2.0 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 652 Octa-core processor
  • Adreno 510 GPU
  • Android v6.0.1 Marshmallow
  • 16 MP rear camera & an 8 MP front camera
  • 3,00 mAh battery
  • Starts at Rs. 11,999

These specifications are more than enough for decent performance, and yeah, before iPhone 7, this is the first one to ditch the headphone jack :p But, the USB TYpe-C headphones are cool! You should buy it along with the phone.
