We have rounded up the best Windows Phone 8 devices under the price bracket of INR 15,000/- and all the three devices are pretty amazing and evenly matched at their own price point, though the HTC is a tad too costly for what it is offering because of which Nokia always wins the race by miles and will always continue doing so unless it gets some stiff competition from outside. But we don’t mind until we are getting some amazing devices powered by Windows Phone 8 at such a low cost. So feel free to comment below as to what you think is the best device among the top three and should companies come out with more higher end or a mid-range or budget Windows Phone 8.

Not everyone can afford a high end flagship phone costing almost a fortune. Hence there is a huge demand for great budget Smartphones as well. People want good phones with good specifications and features for a small price which can not always be possible, but with some compromises, there have come out phones with some really good specs and features for a very cheap cost compared to the flagships. So here today we are going to check out the best budget Smartphones under the price tag of INR 10000.

1. Micromax Canvas 2 Plus:

Micromax Canvas 2 Plus

As the name suggests, this is the upgraded version of the Micromax Canvas 2. The specs are also a bit better in this now with the MediaTek MT6589 Quad core processor clocked at 1.2 GHz coupled with PowerVR SGX531 GPU and 1 GB RAM. Its main attraction is its 5” IPS LCD screen with 480×854 resolution. It is not that high but for the price point it is a great deal with such a huge screen. Also it has a 8 MP snapper at the back capable of HD video recording and also a 2 MP front facing camera for HD video calling over the internet or 3G. It runs Android 4.2 JellyBean out of the box and has 4 GB of internal memory with an expansion slot capable of up to 32 GB. The price at which this phone is available, you got to admit that this is a great steal.

Price: 10000 Rupees

2. Nokia Lumia 520:

Nokia Lumia 520

If you are a beginner in the Smartphone category then the Nokia Lumia 520 is the best phone for you. If you want the experience of a Smartphone minus the hassles and complexity of an Android, then the Windows Phone 8 powered Lumia 520 is your best bet. It is the largest selling Windows phone all over the world. It is not as heavily loaded as some Androids, but it does not even need to be. Windows Phone 8 is a very light and zippy OS that works as smooth as butter even on low specs, hence the specs of Lumia 520, the 1 GHz Dual Core processor, Adreno 305 GPU and 1 GB RAM is enough and perfect to run a phone. Also it has a 4” screen with WXVGA resolution of 800×480 with the super sensitive touch feature where you can use this phone even with gloves on. Add to it the 5 MP camera capable of good quality images in well lit areas because of the absence of a flash and the capability of 480p videos is a great plus point. So for a budget Smartphone, this is actually the best option available.

Price: 8000 Rupees

3. Xolo Q800:

Xolo Q800

This is almost the same phone like the Xolo Q700 barring a few changes. This is also having a 4.5” IPS LCD screen with qHD resolution display. It does not have the One Glass Solution technology on this one. Its PowerVR SGX544 GPU is also clocked higher than the Q700. Though it has the same 1.2 GHz Quad core processor which is not bad by any standard, this phone does have a better camera which is a 8 MP Autofocus camera with an LED flash and a BSI sensor for better low light images. The rest of the features are almost the same like WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0, etc. but one let down here is the presence of a smaller 2100 mAh battery which is still not bad. Also with Android 4.2 JellyBean runs out of the box, this is another great phone in the sub-10k category.

Price: 9600 Rupees

4. Xolo Q700:

Xolo Q700

If someone told you that you can get a Quad Core Android phone at less than 10000 price point, what would your first reaction be? Surprise? Excitement? Maybe even doubt your own eyes? But no, it is the truth, the Xolo Q700 does come with a 1.2 GHz Quad Core processor coupled with the PowerVR SGX544 GPU and take this, 1 GB of RAM. And if that is not all, it also has a 4.5” IPS LCD screen with qHD display at 540×960 pixels at 245 ppi which is more pixel density than many of the mid-range devices as well. Add to that Android 4.2 JellyBean running on it with Google Play App Store with which you can download as many applications as you want. It has 4 GB of internal storage available which is expandable to 32 GB. A 5 MP rear camera with LED flash capable of good quality images and videos and also a VGA front camera. But what wins the show is the 2400 mAh battery in it which is way more than what you get in a 20000 phones as well. Though you have to compromise on the extra weight of the phone owing to the battery, but that is not an issue.

Price: 8000 Rupees

5. Sony Xperia E Dual:

Sony Xperia E Dual

This phone is best suited to you if you want a chic phone that is small, cute and yet functional. The Xperia E has dual SIM capabilities and runs Android is more than enough to actually describe it. It has a small 3.5” display with 320×480 pixel resolution and a single core processor which can never shine out among the heavyweights in the list above. The only reason the phone makes in the list is that in spite of all, it still has Android running on it, a 1530 mAh battery, 2 GB of user available storage space with a 32 GB expansion slot available. The problem with other phones is the after sales service in which they lack where Sony scores over the others. You might be well versed with this phone rather than the others which you might have to throw away if they stop working.
