Choose a slim and powerful Android based smartphone that is ready to perform well to suit your needs.
Most hardware design marvels happen for top of the line flagship handsets. That is why we see the slimmest and lightest smartphones sold at hefty prices. Stubby, heavy and soap-box like phones were mostly pushed in the mid-range segment. Thankfully, now the mid-range segment is getting experimental and colourful.
This week, we bring you five handsets that measure just under 9 mm in terms of thickness and also cost less than Rs 20,000 to suit your budget.

Take a look at the top five slim Android smartphones costing just under Rs 20,000.
