The best Android budget devices in India, at less than Rs 10,000.
Android commands a big chunk of the sub-Rs 10,000 smartphone space. These phones typically have decent features but can't be customised much.
The last listing of 'Top 5 Android smartphones under Rs 10,000' was published by The Mobile Indian in July and since then a lot of things have changed in this area. Many camera phones have moved out of our list and new ones have replaced them. From the last list the Sony Ericsson Xperia X8 and Samsung Galaxy pop have been replaced by newer more powerful devices like the Sony Ericsson W8 and Samsung Galaxy Y.
Samsung Galaxy Y (Price Rs 7,800)
Galaxy Y features a 3 inch capacitive touch based LCD display with 240 x 320 pixel resolution which, despite being small, scores with great display performance. The device is light with a 1200 mAh battery, which is enough to power it for up to two days' use.
Galaxy Y runs on Android 2.3 Gingerbread and combined with Samsung's Touch Wiz user interface it delivers a nice user experience. It is powered by a fast 832 MHz application processor which is by far the maximum that has been offered at this price point.
There have been no major deductions around the hardware except that the device has a 2 megapixel main camera. Nevertheless, it is the best Android Gingerbread phone in its league.
