Here is our list of the top 10 Android smartphones under Rs 10,000 in India for September 2016 across different brands. These phones in Rs. 10000 range offer the best combination of features, performance and quality for a phone buyer whose budget is under Rs 10,000.
Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 @9999
The 16GB version of the Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 priced at Rs. 9,999 in India is the best smartphone to buy under Rs. 10,000 in India. In terms of performance, the Snapdragon 650 powered device moves past many devices priced well above its price range. It also has one of the most reliable battery life we have seen on a sub-10k smartphone. Overall, It offers the best performance and battery life of all smartphones below Rs. 10,000 that are currently available in India. However, the flash sale system is still a big hurdle to pass through.
Xiaomi Redmi 3s Prime @ 8999
The Redmi Note 3 is a great phone, but if your budget doesn’t allow you to buy it, the smaller Redmi 3s is the next best pick. The Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 powered device just falls short in terms of performance compared to the Redmi Note 3, providing great performance at a much lower price tag. However, the main feature of this phone is its long battery life. The device features a 4100mAh battery, which not only matches the Redmi Note 3 but beats every other phone by a large margin in its price category. Fingerprint scanner comes as an added bonus.
LeEco Le 1s Eco @ 9999
The LeEco Le 1s can be best described as the subsidized version of the original LeEco Le 1s. The phone is almost exactly the same as the Le 1s and in addition it also offers LeEco’s supertainment package, which offers video content via various partners. The 5.5-inch device looks good and has a solid build. Powered by a MediaTek Helio X10 SoC, the phone is swift and does not slow down very easily. The phone also quite good when gaming is concerned but it is still lacks the performance of the similarly priced Xiaomi Redmi Note 3. The 13MP rear camera isn’t the best in the category but still manages to be good enough for the price.
Meizu M3 Note @ 9999
The Meizu M3 Note offers a lot of hardware for a sub-10K smartphone like an octa-core processor, 3GB RAM and 32GB of Storage. To top it all, there is a 4100mAh battery inside, which provides more than a day of usage. It is quite simply the best phone to buy if battery is your main priority. The 13MP rear camera on the M3 Note does a decent job and is able to take good images in favourable light conditions. The all metal unibody built offers a touch of premiumness in this budget segment and we believe, it is the best looking phone if your budget is limited to Rs.10,000.

Asus Zenfone Max (2016) @ 8999
The Asus Zenfone Max had a great battery life but it lacked the performance. Asus has rectified that by upgrading to a Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 SoC. Now the Asus Zenfone Max is much faster and offers a reliable performance. Asus hasn’t changed the rest of the stuff though as the phone is still boasting a 13MP rear camera and 5.5-inch display. The phone still features a massive 5000mAh battery which go up to two days without charging.
Coolpad Note 3 Lite @ 6999
Last year, Coolpad did surprise everyone by launching Note 3 which was a budget smartphone with a fingerprint sensor and 3GB of RAM. This year, the company did something better, brought a phone with almost similar specifications to the Sub-7K segment. This makes the Coolpad Note 3 Lite, the best value for money smartphone in the price segment and the best phone to buy in the sub-7K smartphone segment. It is also the only smartphone at its price to offer a fingerprint scanner, and it is quite accurate as well. The quad-core smartphone churns out a commendable performance at the price and can run Facebook or Candy Crush with equal ease. It can even take on heavier games such as Asphalt 8, albeit with occasional lag. The battery life of this little phone is also quite good, with almost eight hours of on-time between charges.
XOLO Black 1X @4999
The Xolo Black 1X is also one of the few phones in this price range to boast a metal frame on its side. However, the biggest plus point for the phone is the only phone, apart from Xiaomi’s Redmi Note 3 to boast a 1080p display. Also, with just a 5-inch display, the Xolo Black 1X offers the best PPi under the sub-10K price. It is powered by the same MediaTek SoC which is being used by the Coolpad Note 3 and it works well for the most part. It does not falter until you try to push it by loading three four demanding games on the memory. Talking about the camera, the Xolo Black has a 13MP shooter on the back, and even though the image quality is decent, the camera does lack sufficient details. The colour reproduction is respectable, and the shutter delay is less than ideal. The front-facing camera is slightly better and the battery life is respectable as well.
Motorola Moto G (3rd gen) @ 8999
The humble Moto G (3rd gen) reserves its spot at fourth position for its best in class software support and best in class optimization. Even though the phone uses yesteryear’s Snapdragon 410 SoC, thanks to Motorola optimization, the phone performs better than most of the phones out there. The Moto G (3rd gen) boasts a very good display and is the only phone in the sub-10k category to offer water resistant capabilities. However, the best part of the phone is its UI which is clean and almost unadulterated Android. Motorola phones always get the latest Android update before any other phone from any other phone manufacturer and that’s what makes it a good proposition.
Lenovo K3 Note @ 9999
Lenovo K3 Note is a generation older now but, it is still a good phone to buy. It is powered by an octa-core SoC which makes the whole user experience across the phone quite smooth. Gaming does push the phone towards the edge but unless you are running some heavy games, you won’t feel much of a difference. Movie watching experience on the phone is great as the K3 Note features a very good display which is further aided by Dolby Atmos optimization.
Asus Zenfone 2 Laser 5.5 2 @8999
Asus Zenfone 2 Laser is the best camera phone you can buy in a budget of below Rs. 10000. The phone has a 13MP rear camera which is assisted by laser autofocus making the phone quite fast in focusing and taking pictures. However, the rest of the phone, with its Snapdragon 410, 2GB RAM and a 5.5-inch 720p display is just good, not the best. Although, if camera is your priority you won’t go wrong with the Asus Zenfone 2 laser 5.5.
