HomeMobilesTop 10 Android phones under Rs 15,000 – August 2014 Ashwini Sah Aug 17, 2014 Mobiles, Top 5 388 Comments TweetSharebar TweetSub-15k price range has always been the most sensitive segment for the mobile phones. Time and again reports have unveiled it as the most popular price segment. In this price range (Rs 10,000 to Rs 15,000 or 10-15k), both international and domestic players are equally active. Thanks to desi companies like Micromax, Lava and Karbonn, which flooded the market with spec-heavy budget mobile phones. To compete with them, the international companies like Sony and Samsung rolled out feature loaded devices which don’t cost a fortune now. If these were not enough, direct entry of Chinese brands (Huawei, Gionee etc) has further complexed the situation. Chosing a few clear winners is a lot more complex job now, but then, we had to do it. Here’s our handpicked list of best Android phones under Rs 15,000 Top 10 Android mobiles in India under Rs. 15,000 Although bigger mobiles are in high demand, but there are a lot of people not comfortable with huge screens. We will start with a few under 5-inch smartphones, and then proceed to the bigger ones. 1. Sony Xperia M Dual: Rs 10,890 The Sony Xperia M dual sports a 4.0-inch display that runs Android 4.2 Jelly Bean. The device gets power from a 1GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 Pro processor, accompanied by Adreno 305 GPU and 1GB of RAM. The device features 5-megapixel rear camera and a VGA front camera. Inbuilt storage is 4GB, further expandable up to 32GB. A 1,700mAh battery fuels the device. 2. Samsung Galaxy Core 2: Rs 11,510 With a display of 4.5-inch, the Samsung Galaxy Core 2 is handy enough to fit any pocket. Running Android 4.4.2 KitKat, the Galaxy Core 2 is powered by a 1.2GHz quad-core processor and 768MB of RAM. The device packs 5-megapixel autofocus camera with LED flash and 0.3-megapixel front camera. The 4GB of inbuilt storage is expandable up to 64GB. 3. Motorola Moto G 16GB: Rs 11,999 Nothing beats the Motorola Moto G in the below-15k price segment. With a recent price drop of 2K, the deal has become even more lucrative. Beneath the high quality display that runs Android 4.3 Jelly Bean, the Moto G packs a Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 quad-core processor and 1GB of RAM. The 16GB of inbuilt storage is not expandable as the device comes with nano coating to make itself water-repellent. The only downer in the device is not-so-good camera, besides which the device is simply mind blowing for its price. 4. Samsung Galaxy Grand Quattro: Rs 14,500 Configuration-wise, the Samsung Galaxy Grand Quattro is the best Samsung Android mobile phone, even under Rs 20,000. The 4.7-inch display that runs Android 4.1 Jelly Bean has been powered by 1.2GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, 1GB RAM and Adreno 203 GPU. Other features of the Grand Quattro include 5-megapixel main camera, 0.3-megapixel front camera, 3G, Wi-Fi, 8GB expandable storage and 2,000mAh battery. The only downer here is a bit outdated OS, but we expect Samsung to release an upgrade soon. 5. Lenovo S650: Rs 10,325 The Lenovo S650 is another good option if you are seeking a 4.7-inch Android smartphone. It flaunts a 4.7-inch, Super IPS+ LCD display with a resolution of 540 x 960 pixels. It comes with Android 4.2 on board and gets power from a 1.3Ghz quad-core processor working in tandem with a 1GB RAM. While the 8MP camera lets you snap your good moments, the 8GB of inbuilt memory (expandable up to 64GB) provides enough space to store them. The front camera at just 0.3-megapixel is a letdown though. You have a 2,000mAh battery to keep the show running. Best 5-inch Android Mobiles (Phablets) under Rs 15,000 Large screen smartphones are on all rage now-a-days. Below are our favorite Android mobiles which are priced below 15k and flaunt a 5-inch or bigger screen. 6. Xiaomi Mi 3: Rs 13,999 The phone that sells out in seconds. Xiaomi (pronounced Sha-O-mi ) has redefined the way we used to look at the chinese brands. Affordable price, powerful specs and killer looks, the Mi 3 has is all. The Xiaomi Mi 3 flaunts a 5-inch FHD IPS Retina display that runs MIUI v5 (a customized version of Android 4.3), and gets power from a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor coupled with 2GB of RAM. For photography, it packs a 13-megapixel with dual-LED flash and 2-megapixel front camera for video calling and selfies. Other features include 16GB inbuilt storage, 3G, Bluetooth 4.0, 3,050mAh battery etc. The device delivers an excellent value for money. Grab one if you can. 7. Asus Zenfone 5: Rs 12,999 Asus recently launched the Zenfone series in India, and the Zenfone 5 is considered as the bestselling device of the series. Powered by an Intel Atom Processor with Hyper-Threading Technology, the Zenfone 5 flaunts a 5-inch IPS HD display protected by the Corning Gorilla Glass. It packs an 8MP camera for photography and a 2MP front camera for video calling. In terms of memory it has 2GB of RAM and 16GB of ROM which is expandable upto 64GB. Other features include 3G, Bluetooth v4.0, a 2,110 mAh battery etc. 8. Samsung Galaxy Grand Neo: Rs 14,990 The Samsung Galaxy Grand Neo is a trimmed down version of the much popular Galaxy Grand. It carries the same design but with a trimmed down 5-megapixel camera, along with a VGA front camera. Other specifications are almost similar with 5-inch non-HD display, 1.2Ghz quad-core processor, 1GB RAM, 16GB inbuilt storage, 3G, Wi-Fi, DLNA and 2100mAh battery. 9. Karbonn Titanium Octane Plus: Rs 13,990 Looking to buy an octa-core smartphone below Rs 15,000, the Karbonn Titanium Octane Plus is here. The high octane smartphone runs Android 4.4 KitKat on its 5-inch FHD display, and equips a 16MP primary camer along with an 8MP front camera. Processor under the hood is a 1.7GHz MTK6592 octa-core CPU accompanied by 2GB of RAM. Other features of the Karbonn Titanium Octane Plus include 3G, 16GB inbuilt storage 2,000mAh battery. 10. Micromax Canvas Turbo A250: Rs 14,299 The Micromax Canvas Turbo A250 has been praised by reviewers for packing in a great set of specifications at an affordable price. The 5-inch full HD display that runs Android 4.2 derives power from a 1.5Ghz quad-core processor, accompanied by 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage. The Canvas Turbo A250 sports a 13MP camera at the back and a 5MP camera at the front. The device is backed by a 2,000mAh battery. Did we miss a great device in the list?

Reply Nitin June 11th, 2012 Hi Ashwini, I have sorted out the two phones – HTC One V and Sony Xperia U. I bit confused between which one to buy because Xperia U has a Dual core processor but lacks expansion of memory (Only 4Gb inbuilt). I have budget of 16K to 17K but both the phones are slightly above my budget so will there be price drop of these two mobile. Suggest me other choices too around my range.

Reply Ayesha March 7th, 2012 Hi Ashwini, I would like to buy a smart phone. This will be my first smart phone. At the moment I make about 3 hrs of calls a day, use the camera a lot (I love taking street photographs). I use a lot of google and will use emails (office and personal); I am also bad at charging my phone so don’t want to go for something like samsung S2 which gives about half to one day of battery plus it is expensive. After reading reviews here is what I think this might be a good config for a phone: Android OS, 1GHz processor, 512 MB RAM, 5 MP camera, Flash, 2G,3G, 4 GB internal storage which can upgraded upto 32 GB via microSD card slot, S-AMOLED screen. My budget is about 15-20K Can you please suggest a good phone. I am not in any hurry and can even wait a month or so but please recommend something that will last. I have seen the Samsung – Wave III and liked it a lot but since the OS is Bada a lot of people say not to go for it. Please advise. Thanks so much. Reply Ashwini Sah March 10th, 2012 The cheapest Super AMOLED screen with Android is Samsung Galaxy S plus which comes for around 20.5k. Nice phone, you can go for it In case you can go without AMOLED, I suggest LG Optimus 2x. Bada is a nice OS but there’s hell scarcity of apps in the store which makes it only for the people who are not fond of tweaking their mobile much. People are right, stay away. Reply Ayesha March 10th, 2012 Thanks Ashwini. Appreciate your suggestions. The Samsung Galaxy S+ comes without a flash but the Samsung Galaxy R is the same pone with a flash. However I have been reading reviews that it hags.

Reply Sumit February 1st, 2012 If Smartphone means just browsing then every phone is a smartphone, phones with internet browsing also do come within 3K INR. All the Samsung galaxy series phones priced above or below 15K INR do have everything in common apart from memory and processor. The most ridiculous part is that they do not have smart WiFi and Bluetooth features. Certainly the NFC type features are missing. Just with a big screen if its costs more then why not opt for a Nokia Lumia. It is even smarter, faster and also priced lower than the galaxy devices.

Queries asked in our Q&A board gets a better response Reply Gautam October 17th, 2011 correction… Defy’s 3.7″ (854×480, 16:9, 264ppi) Reply Gautam October 17th, 2011 Folks, I don’t see any other phone except Moto Defy in this price range (10-15k) I own the Motorola defy, absolutely stunning. never had any regrets since its purchase (3 months). Its a beauty and the beast… Screen -> Defy’s 3.7″ (854×840, 16:9, 264ppi) screen is a pleasure to read text, watch movie, navigate. However a bigger screen is always welcome, like 4″ CPU/GPU -> Defy’s 800Mhz can be overclocked to 1GHz+, I believe it will have a 15-20% performance increase, which can come closer to Galaxy S’s 1GHz humming bird. After killing un-necessary tasks & processes, I have never felt a lag in any graphics yet. defy is waterproof is a big plus! Ringtone volume is loud and has bass & quality The only 2 -ves about defy are: 1. Some space should have been provided below the touch-sensitive buttons, as they get often pressed(lower left corner) accidentally while operating defy with one hand 2. battery backup is not much I would definately go for defy, for screen and x-proofs [ Ace < defy < Galaxy S < iPhone4 < Galaxy S2] Reply Ashwini October 17th, 2011 Thanks Gautam for your insights Reply Saurav Chatterjee | সৌরভ চ্যাটার্জী October 14th, 2011 The Samsung Galaxy Ace is superb… the best among the listed 5 !

I heard its gud one and comes in Rs 13000/- on Ebay. Any review on this will be greatly appretiated. Thanks Krishna Reply Ashwini October 17th, 2011 Hey Krishna… Gautam answered your question Reply Shahazadh October 7th, 2011 Does Galaxy Ace S5830 come with a front camera .I dont think so .It was never mentioned in the specifications that it has a front camera Reply Shahazadh October 7th, 2011 How is the Galaxy Ace S5830 compared to Galaxy Pop S5570 which I am using right now ?

Ashwini I am interested in buying an android phone as it contains a complete package of all the features which most advanced users like me are fascinated with. eg: GPRS, EDGE, 3G, Wlan, GPS, Bluetooth, etc. and can play most audio formats & video fomats in HD. However, all the brands have a single sim capacity. Is there any company offering all these features with a dual sim android mobile in GSM / CDMA? Will there be any company introducing an android dual sim mobile with such features in future? Currently Samsung’s Galaxy models and Sony Ericssons Xperia are some really good phones, if only they had a dual sim option, it would have been great for people like me using two sims. I am already using a Qwerty phone but now I am really keen on buying an android. Hope you have any suggestions? Reply Sunil July 30th, 2011 Hello dear, I want to buy a phone in the range of 10K-14K.

Reply Ashwini Sah July 30th, 2011 Hi Nitin, Thanks for your good words… If I was given an option, I will go for Spice MI-410 (rebranded Huawei X6)…. Just for 14k it posses all the features of high end mobiles like 1ghz processor, large screen etc. Look for the reviews of Huawei X6 and you will get a clear picture. Nokia C6-01 is another good option if you aren’t mad about Android. Best of luck for your next phone buddy Reply Hina July 28th, 2011 hi!! i read ur suggestions. great work!! I m also willing to buy a new phn under 13k. m not mad about android bt i hv heard that nokiia phones do not work that efficiently if one uses wifi……..is that so? i have always had nokia bt ths time i was thinking of galaxy ace……….an nokia c601. plz help. thanks. Reply nitin dwivedi July 28th, 2011 Hi Hina.. Well if you are not mad about Androids, then you can surely go with the Name and that’s Nokia.. The dependability of the phone over the WI-Fi network totally depends upon the Internet network speed and also upon the number of applications that you are using on your phone, or have been installed on yur phone.. Nokia is the best brand i have ever used, even my friends finds the same..still yu have ur own opinion , u can choose to go with galaxy ace.. But one of my friend has recently bought and galaxy ace, and its battery gets down in 6 hours, he has also not installed too many applications also, still it go down soon. . In comparision nokia do gives u a upper hand.. Hope u like my suggestion…. have a great day ahead.. Reply Ashwini Sah July 30th, 2011 Great thoughts Nitin… I agree… Hina you can also look for Samsung Wave 2… its a great phone Reply Krishna July 27th, 2011 Hi,Ashwini, I have gone through all above comments & post appreciate your work in providing guidance to many people.I am also willing to buy new mobile under 13k having good o.s,internal mem/rom,video,sound,3g,web browsing & video calling support. I have 2 mobiles in my mind within this range one is nokia c6-01 and other is samsung ace which is hving good o.s and cpu speed.Can you suggest which one should i go for considering above requirement. Also pls suggest i am currently in qatar and will be flying back to india on 30th of this month so buying mobile here will be cheaper or at same cost in india. Pls reply soon i need to buy within 2 days. regards Reply Ashwini July 28th, 2011 Go for Nokia C6-01 if you are not mad about Android. The Super Amoled screen and 8 Megapixel camera keeps it ahead of Galaxy Ace. However Symbian^3 OS is way behind Android in terms of Apps. Both are priced around 13.5k in India, checkout the price in qatar to get the clear figure. Hope it helps Reply Anvesh July 24th, 2011 Hi Ashwini, I am planning to buy an android phone between the price range 10k-15k…already my bro has lg optimus one..so which mobile do u suggest me.. thank you in advance..

Can you tell me the difference between Samsung Galaxy SL I9003 and Samsung Galaxy Ace in terms of features and anything else of importance that you know ?? My budget is of about 19-20 k. I was thinking of buying blackberry bold 3 earlier. But i’ve settled for android phones since everyone says that they’re better than blackberry in many ways. Please suggest Reply Ashwini July 18th, 2011 Samsung Galaxy SL I9003 is better than Samsung Galaxy Ace as it posses better cpu (1 Ghz over 800 mhz), larger screen and dual camera. However there is no flash for camera in SL I9003. Offcourse in Android vs blackberry, Android is better… You can also go for Samsung Google nexus S which comes for 20k and is even better.

Thnx again. Gaurav May 16th, 2011 Hitesh,I am currently using spice mi 310(processor speed 600 mhz) and before it,i was using aircel ideos(processor speed 528 mhz). And the difference of just 72 mhz was more than noticeable.On my mi 310,games are much more smoother than ideos.So you can think what the difference of 200 mhz can do. Secondly,i would recommend you to buy spice mi 410 (1 ghz qualcomm processor,4.1 inch capacitive screen,480*800 res,bluetooth 3.0). ankush gupta May 12th, 2011 neetesh , if dont wana stick to android you can go for “NOKIA X7″ otherwise samsung “i9003″ is the best option for you. advantages of nokia x7 is it has amoled screen with is smoother in touch, 8mega pixel camera, hd video recording and awesome looks !!

Coz when you buy an Android phone, you have o compromize on other fronts., Forget about Nokia C6, its an obsolete phone. Out of rest two, I recommend Nokia C7 as it seems a complete phone with a 8 MP camera and super Amoled screen. However screen resolution is lower than Wave 2. But that hardle matters.

I am looking at buying a 3G cell phone and have a budget of around Rs.15,000. I am very confused whether to go for an android based phone or a blackberry. My primary usage would be emails and other business stuff. I play games and listen to music only ocassionally; so a cell with decent music and games would do. Though I like to use a wide variety of apps.WiFi is also essential but I guess all phone in this range come with WiFi. A good camera would be great as I intend to use it for video recording. Fast processing, good battery backup and good memory size are something that I certainly want in my cell phone. I have shortlisted Blackberry Curve 3G, Samsung Ace and HTC Wildfire, however, I am open to other suggestion as well. Do tell about pros and cons of these phones. Looking forward to your reply. Thank you in advance. Reply Ashwini April 26th, 2011 Mazhar you have choosen the right phones as per you needs. First of all remove the HTC wildfire from you list as its an old and low powered device. Out of rest two, Samsung Galaxy Ace seems to take more weightage than Blackberry 9300 3G. It gives you a larger screen, better camera, flexibility of Android etc. The only thing you will loose with Ace is the Alerts for mail. I have heard of some Blackberry messenger kind of applications are to be launched for Android. I suggest Ace.

Reply Ashwini April 25th, 2011 Is Samsung Transform available in India? I don’t think so… Right now there is no android phone in India in this budget which serves all you requirement. You can go for Samsung Galaxy Ace which can somehow satisfy you. Or if you can increase your budget, go for Samsung Galaxy SL I9003 Reply DECENT April 23rd, 2011 Hi All, I want to buy a phone in range 13K – 18K and the phone should have front camera.

The only thing it does not have is a good inbuilt memory. From Android 2.2 you can install apps directly on memory card, so you might not need a good inbuilt memory. You can also consider Samsung Galaxy I9003 as it comes with 4 to 16 GB inbuilt memory, but you won’t get flash for camera in it.

And wat i hav found out is tat if awesome looks matter , then its always galaxy ace or Htc wildfire, better too would be galaxy ace, coz its way more comfortable wen handheld. as for android 2.2, both can be update to 2.3 in future. If u r thinkin of better touch , then Htc wildfire is a better bet then galaxy ace. But none the less, I would go for galaxy ace coz of its shear looks and also the numerous applications and a good touch which is comfortable enough if not as good as htc with the same price range.

I wana know which phone you will purchase for you, I think that could be the best for me also. Best Regards Aarti rome April 4th, 2011 hi ashwin , can you pls help me which is a better option for 1) gaming 2) using 3g 3) doc reader samsung galaxy ace or dell xcd35 or sony xperia mini hav a budget of 14k pls reply soon Reply Ashwini April 4th, 2011 Forget Xperia Mini… It outdated. Out of the former two, Galaxy Ace seems to be better: - 800 MHz ARM 11 processor is optimal for gaming - 5 MegaPixel Camera with flash - Comes with document editor - Came with stock Android 2.2, hence chances of getting Android 2.3 is more than that of Dell XCD35 Reply ishaan April 3rd, 2011 and i cant wait for the april section. i think it’ll make a big impact on my decision Reply ishaan April 3rd, 2011 im so sorry for asking so many questions, but do both the phones open office docs?

Could you suggest me a good android phone, withing rs. 15000 range on folloing points. I am looking for a big screen for the movie and reading documents kind of stuff. 1. Document Reader e.g PDF, PPT 2. Social Networking 3. Vedio 4. Talk Time 5. Touch Screen. Thanks Yousuf Reply Ashwini March 31st, 2011 Hi Sri, a) Samsung Galaxy Ace could be a good option, You can also consider Motorola Defy (getting Android 2.2 froyo) or Samsung Galaxy SL I9003 b) In terms of Heigh end android phones (above 20k) HTC phones rules over the Galaxy series, but in case of Mid-range Android phones, Samsung Galaxy Models are better. c)Online purchase are good if you buy through big stores like Flipkart etc… No Idea about stores in Chennai… Is there a Tata Croma store in Chennai, they are offering some good deals Reply Sri March 29th, 2011 HI Ashwini, Am looking for a good android phone,budget is not really a constraint. a) Main features that I’m looking at are: Internet usage/ Soical networking, decent camera, good processor, battery back-up, updatable to gingerbread, and of course a good deal.. b) Pls suggest if HTC models score over Samsung Galaxy Models, and which are the models you suggest..and where can i get best deals on them.. c) Do you suggest an online purchase or purchase at an outlet, which stores would you suggest in chennai? Cheers, Sri Reply Yousuf March 29th, 2011 Hi Ashwini, Nice to see, you are helping people with your well versed knowledge. I also have a query in this regard. I am planning to purchase Dell XCD35, how did you find this phone on the following points. 1. Document Reader e.g PDF, PPT 2. Social Networking 3. Vedio 4. Talk Time 5. Touch Screen. Thanks Yousuf Reply Ashwini March 31st, 2011 Thanks for your great words Yousuf All the function you mentioned here work smoothly on Dell XCD35… However, our readers doesn’t give a great review for XCD35… If you compare it with Optimus one, you are paying around 3k extra only for a better screen. Choose wisely… 13k matters Reply Nishith March 28th, 2011 Hi, I’m on the lookout for a smartphone in the range of 10k-15k. 1) Which would be the best with a good processor. 2) also which are the good motorola phones in that range? 3) Would Motorola milestone be a good choice? Reply Ashwini Sah March 28th, 2011 Hi Nishith, 1. Samsung Galaxy Ace has a good processor i.e. 800 mhz 2. Dell XCD35 is a good android smartphone… comes with android 2.2 onboard 3. Motorola milestone is a good option… already got Android 2.2 upgrade… kinda communicator….

Froyo doesn’t support front camera. Search what’s new in gingerbread on google,and you’ll find its only from that onwards,that front camera is being supported by android. ishaan March 25th, 2011 also the graphics are quite important for me. i hated the graphics on the galaxy 3, i thought it was very pixelated is the galaxy ace clearer? Reply Ashwini Sah March 28th, 2011 Lack of adobe flash does not matter much… According to your requirements, Samsung Galaxy Ace is a good option Reply ishaan April 1st, 2011 thank you very much. ace it is. you are a wise man ishaan March 25th, 2011 Hi Ashwini, i was thinking about getting the samsung galaxy ace. does the fact that it lacks the adobe flash in the web browser make a huge difference? im looking to get an android with decent features and a good touch. im not too skeptical about the camera. im looking forward more to the apps and the gaming bit and also the internet on the phone and what about the videocon zeus? could you suggest a good buy please? Reply Chickoo March 18th, 2011 Hey ashwini, y have u put Ace in 5th position when it the best amongst all these 5. is it just becos of the price. I want to handset with decent gamin capabilities. Is 240×320 very bad for good games. I am thinkin of buyin ACE only for its gaming capabilities and for gingerbread support(hopefully it wuld support) otherwise 551 and fit are very very perfect for me. Reply Ashwini Sah March 28th, 2011 240×320 resolution does not support high end games… for normal gaming they are perfect… Additionally Galaxy Ace also has a better processor which would ensure the smooth running of forthcoming Android versions… Reply Chickoo March 18th, 2011 Hey Ashwini, Im thinkin of buyin Galaxy Ace> 551> fit>gio likely in next 2-3 days. My budget is 13k so i am hoping to get a good deal for ace. Thanks for the re. Reply Asif March 17th, 2011 hi ashwin, i m confuse to baying Galaxy Fit S5670 or Optimus P500.
