Have just Rs 10, 000 to spare for a sexy smartphone? We tell you which one to buy!
Lava Xolo Q700 (Rs 9,990)
If you dig Android and have just Rs 10,000 to spare, we suggest you buy this phone asap. With 1.2GHz quad-core with 1GB RAM and a 4.5-inch IPS display at 540 x 960, running Android 4.2 Jelly Bean and powered by a 2400 mAh battery, this phone is an absolute steal. It comes in stylish coffee brown and trendy blue, so the ‘cool’ factor has been taken care of too! If there is one gripe we have about this phone, it’s the weight. But then again, for under Rs 10K, the bulk doesn’t even matter.
Nokia Lumia 520 (Rs 9,899)
The stunning Nokia Lumia is one of the best looking phones in the market for under Rs 10K. It’s trendy, comes in a riot of colours and boasts of some fab features too, especially a really cool camera. In fact, it’s one of the best in this category. It works on Microsoft Windows Phone 8, which is slowly becoming a favoured platform in an otherwise Android/iOS-dominated world. It has 8 GB, 512 MB RAM and dual core processor.
Micromax Canvas Music A88 (Rs 8,499)
Other than an attractive price of less than 9 grand, this Micromax smartphone doesn’t have anything out of the world to offer. With a not-so appealing exterior, 4GB, 512MB RAM and dual core processor, it’s rather mediocre in every way.
Karbonn Titanium S1 (Rs 9,990)
With a 4.5 inch display screen and quad-core processor, it has a promising outlook but fails to deliver. Despite the 1.2GHz quad-core processor and 1GB RAM that make the Jelly Bean-powered phone work fast; it doesn’t impress us, thanks to its ugly physical appearance.
Sony Xperia E Dual (Rs 9,799)
It has the Sony brand behind it, which makes it sturdy and sexy. The dual-sim is also a good bargain if you are planning to keep your lover and others on a different spectrum! But the single-core process and 3.45 inch screen is enough to make this phone unattractive. But if you must have a branded phone on you, you can totally go for this one.
This was our take on the best in the under Rs 10K smartphone market. Do you and your friends have any other suggestion? Do let us know and we can feature your article on our new section ‘Campus Pulse’. Keep it coming in, guys!
