Although the news is often dominated by the latest flagship phones because that’s where the most innovation is happening, when it’s time to actually buy a phone, most of us are still looking in the under Rs. 10,000 category. It’s also one of the categories that sees relatively fast turnover in picks, as a lot of mobiles are released in this price range. In the under Rs. 10,000 category, we’ve added a few phones that weren’t there in our last roundup, and there’s a notable exit as well. If you’re looking to buy a mobile under Rs. 10,000, then these are the absolute best options you have right now.
As always, we’ve stuck to phones that we’ve put through our detailed review process, since we can’t vouch for quality of phones based on just their specifications. We’ve also avoided mobiles that are over a year old, as, especially in the sub-Rs. 10,000 price bracket, things tend to change for the better pretty quickly.
Here are our top picks (in no particular order) that all fight it out to be the best phone under Rs. 10,000, along with a few other phones worth checking out.
Best phones under Rs. 10,000

|Lenovo K6 Power||8/10|

1. Xiaomi Redmi 4
Replacing the Xiaomi Redmi 3S Prime, which was one of the strongest picks through much of last year, we now have the Xiaomi Redmi 4, which is also a good pick if your budget is under Rs. 10,000.
Our review rated the 3GB/ 32GB variant of the phone 8 on 10 which is really good for a phone at this price point, and the new phone has really good battery life and a sleek and compact design. The camera is disappointing, but it’s a problem that even the best phones under the Rs. 10,000 price must live with. If you’re looking for a value for money phone, then the Xiaomi Redmi 4 is a solid pick.
