5 inch phones are no longer a premium product; you can buy one for as low as Rs 6,500. Here is the first part of the most affordable 5 inch phones with ratings.
Android phones with larger displays are becoming dominant in the smartphone business. So much so that smartphones with 5 inch or bigger displays are now eating into the 7 inch tablet market. And the reason is clear, 5 inch phones offer a better way to utilise the extra horsepower and abilities of Android smartphones, which otherwise get wasted because you don't enjoy surfing the net, or playing games, or watching videos on a small display as much as you do on a larger display.
What has so far been in the Rs 10,000 and beyond category is becoming cheaper and now starts at Rs 6,500, making it more mass market. So here is the part one of most affordable 5 inch Android phones.
1. Celkon A900 (Rs 5,999)
