Best of the best Android devices that you can buy within Rs 10,000.
Google's Android, which is a free and open source mobile operating system, has allowed many small and big device manufacturers to adopt this operating system for their devices. This has increased the competition and ultimately lowered the prices of devices. Hence, today you have a range of Android smartphones in the sub Rs 10,000 category which earlier was unthinkable.
Here we bring you the Top 5 Android smartphones that are available in India. However, these are not low on performance or specifications and are meant for those users who are just entering the Android arena but with a smaller budget. These offer superb value for money and are good enough for handling most daily tasks.
Samsung Galaxy Y Pro Duos (Price Rs 9,500)
By far, the Samsung Galaxy Y has been the most exciting offering for the pocket conscious people. But it has now been defeated by its very own successor - the Galaxy Y Pro Duos, because of the added functionality and features it offers at a budget friendly price.
The Samsung Galaxy Y Pro Duos features a 2.6 inch capacitive touch based LCD display with a 240 x 320 pixel resolution display. The device is light thanks to the 1350 mAh battery, which is enough to power this device for up to two days' use. But unlike its predecessor, the Galaxy Y Pro Duos comes with a full Qwerty keypad as well that adds a lot of comfort for the users to type and use this device. The smartphone also comes with a dual SIM standby connectivity.
Galaxy Y Pro Duos has Android 2.3 Gingerbread as its operating system and Samsung's Touch Wiz user interface. It is powered by a fast 832 MHz application processor which is great for most tasks and even multitasking.
The phone has a small 3 megapixel main camera, but it is the best phone money can buy at such a low price point featuring Android Gingerbread.
