The reason we end up compiling these listicles so often is simply because the space is so rapidly evolving. For instance when the Lenovo K4 Note was launched in the first week of January this year, we thought it would reign supreme for a few months at least, but as it turns out, the LeEco Le 1s was launched just two weeks later, and now it seems to be the segment king for phones around the Rs 10,000 mark.
So read on to find out the five best phones under Rs 15,000.
LeEco has already got a huge fan following, with 70,000 phones sold in the first flash sale in just two seconds. The LeEco Le 1s is equipped with a 5.5 inch full HD IPS display and a fingerprint sensor. This Android Lollipop based phone has MediaTek’s flagship Helio X10 Turbo chipset that has an octa-core 2.2 GHz processor and 3 GB of RAM. Its internal memory stands at 32 GB (non-expandable).
Besides, the Le 1s offers a 13 megapixel autofocus primary camera, a 5 megapixel selfie shooter, two SIM slots, 4G connectivity, GPS, WiFi, Bluetooth, and USB Type C for connectivity. The power is provided by a 3000 mAh unit.

The Lenovo K4 Note is equipped with a 5.5 inch full HD IPS display. The phone runs on Android Lollipop operating system. It has the MediaTek MT6753 processor, an octa-core 1.3 GHz unit, which runs with 3 GB of RAM. It has 32 GB of internal storage space which you expand by another 144 GB via a microSD card.
The handset offers a 13 megapixel rear camera that comes with an aperture of f/2.0, autofocus, smile detection, HDR, face beauty, flash, and video recording features. For selfies and video calls, the phone offers a 5 megapixel front camera. The dual-SIM Lenovo K4 Note also offers 4G connectivity, GPS, WiFi, NFC, and Bluetooth. It has a 3300 mAh battery.
The Honor 5X features in this list simply because it offers a solid bouquet of features (including a fingerprint sensor) at a very reasonable price. The Honor 5X is armed with a 5.5 inch full HD IPS display. It runs on Android Lollipop, and has the octa-core Snapdragon 615 processor clocked at 1.5 GHz, which runs with 2 GB of RAM.
Honor 5X has 16 GB, to which you can add another 128 GB via a micro SD card. It too offers a 13 megapixel rear auto focus camera and a 5 megapixel selfie taker. The dual SIM Honor 5X offers 4G, GPS, Bluetooth, WiFi and a 3000 mAh battery.
The Xiaomi Mi 4 is a steal at this price, as it offers a flagship quality experience at a reasonable price. The only fly in the ointment is the lack of 4G. The Mi 4 has a 5 inch IPS display that has resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels, thus offering pixel density of 441 ppi. The M i4 has the Snapdragon 801, a quad-core processor that has maximum clock speed of 2.5 GHz. The Mi 4 has 3 GB of RAM but it is based on the older Android KitKat OS and has the MIUI 5.0 interface, but an upgrade to Lollipop and MIUI 6.0 is rumoured to be in the offing.
The internal memory of the Mi4 is 16 GB (non-expandable), and it has a 13 megapixel primary camera as well as an 8 megapixel front camera. The Mi 4 has only one SIM slot. This 3G phone offers GPS, Bluetooth 4.0, WiFi, MHL (mobile high definition link), DLNA, NFC and a 3080 mAh battery that can provide up to 280 hours of standby, or 12 hours of talk time.
The Moto G Turbo is another stellar effort from Motorola. The Motorola Moto G Turbo is equipped with a 5 inch HD IPS display. The phone runs on Android Lollipop operating system and has the 1.5 GHz octa-core Snapdragon 615 processor. The Moto G Turbo has 2 GB of RAM, 16 GB internal memory, and a 32 GB microSD card slot.
Besides, the Moto G Turbo offers a 13 megapixel primary camera, a 5 megapixel selfie shooter, dual-SIM, 4G connectivity, GPS (A-GPS and GLONASS), WiFi, Bluetooth and a 2470 mAh battery.
