Best of the best Android devices that Rs 10,000 can buy.
Of the many Android devices available in the market today there are some that have caught our attention as they offer superb value for money and great features too. These devices are good enough for handling most tasks and won't get outdated any time soon either.
So here we present the top five budget Android smartphones under Rs 10,000.
Sony Xperia Tipo (Rs 9,500)
Sony Xperia Tipo despite being the cheapest offers good hardware specifications and comes with a design that is good looking as well as functional.
It has a 3.2 inch 320 x 480 pixel display, which is not at all bad and does justice to most functions of the device. The colour reproduction of the display is good but the brightness levels on the device seem a little low for being legible in sunlight. The low cost of the device comes with a few exclusions and the mobile Bravia engine is one of them.
The display, however, has a scratch resistant mineral glass on top which will make sure that daily use does not cause any damage to the device. Xperia Tipo is powered by an 800 MHz single core Qualcomm MSM7225AA processor featuring the Adreno 200 GPU for superior graphics. Coupled with 512 MB of RAM the device gives out decent all round performance but limitations of the CPU will definitely arise when you play processor intensive applications and games. The device with its timescape user interface is quite fast and never lacks in anything from app execution to performance. To top it all the device comes with Android Ice Cream Sandwich operating system for better app compatibility too.
