Luckily for those on a tight budget, or for those looking only for a basic smartphone experience, there are a lot of really good options available. Here is a roundup of some of the Best Android phones under 10,000 in India.

Editor’s note: This list includes all phones that are priced below Rs 10,000. There will be separate lists to showcase devices priced below Rs 30,000 and between Rs 10,000 and Rs 20,000 as well. 

Xiaomi Redmi 4

Best Android phones under 10,000

Xiaomi has found immense success in the Indian market by managing to undercut the competition even in the best Android phones under 10,000 segment. The recently-launched Redmi 4 is one great example of this, and the device offers a lot more than what its price point would suggest. While the specs and features are generally what is to be expected from an affordable smartphone, the Redmi 4 does impress in terms of its metal build, excellent fingerprint scanner, and battery life, with the large 4,100 mAh battery able to keep things running for sometimes as long as two days.

It’s unfortunate that the Redmi 4 is a difficult phone to get your hands on, with Xiaomi continuing to use their flash sale model in which the device goes on sale once a week, and sells out really quickly. The device goes on sale every Tuesday at 12 PM, but you can keep a track of the exact date on Amazon or the Xiaomi website.

The 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB storage version is priced at just Rs 6,999, while the model with 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of storage will set you back Rs 8,999. There is also a more expensive iteration, priced at Rs 10,999, which will get you 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of built-in storage.

While the display doesn’t come with the highest resolution, you get to enjoy ultra-thin bezels along its sides and thin top and bottom portions on this device, as well as the odd 18:9 aspect ratio. The design is reminiscent of what is available with the Samsung Galaxy S8 and LG G6, which is so impressive when you consider that the Canvas Infinity is priced at less than Rs 10,000.

It’s not only about the looks with the Canvas Infinity either, with the phone featuring a 16 MP front-facing camera for all the selfie lovers out there, a good processing package, and decent battery life.

The Micromax Canvas Infinity is being sold for Rs 9,999. However, Micromax is using a flash sale model, so you can find when the next sale is via the link below.
