Here’s we have shortlisted top 5 popular smartphones available in India between Rs 10,000 to Rs 15,000 to make your buying decision easy.

Xiaomi Mi A1

Xiaomi recently launched its first Android One smartphone, the Mi A1 in India at Rs 14,999. This is the first Android One smartphone, which is developed in partnership with Google.

Google further says that Xiaomi Mi A1 will get Android 8.0 Oreo update within 2017. Further, the brand reveals that it will be the first device to come with upcoming Android P version. The phone also comes with Google Assistant. The phone comes with Google Photos free unlimited high-quality storage. This means the photo clicked through Mi camera app, will be saved in automatically on Google Photos in high quality. Google says that the device will be available in India and dozens of other countries as well.

The battery capacity might be an issue for some but the Snapdragon 625 being one of the most battery efficient chipsets out there, the Mi A1 should last you a full day comfortably. All in all, the iPhone factor actually favours the Mi A1 here and if you are looking for a premium looking and feeling device with stock Android on board, the Mi A1 is the ideal choice. Good Luck with the flash sales, though. Here are the detailed specs.

Lenovo K8 Note

The Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 has been the long king of premium budget smartphone segment, however, if there is a device which can possibly beat it both in terms of hardware and software, it has to be the Lenovo K8 Note. Priced similar to the Redmi Note 4, the K8 Note not only boasts some impressive specifications but also offers a dual camera setup at the back and stock Android. So you get better pictures out of the Note 8 and stock Android does give us that confidence that Lenovo will push the software updates much faster this time around. The dual camera set-up here again focuses on those bokeh shots. Besides, we get a massive 4000 mAh battery inside so this device is relatively chunkier in hands at 8.5 mm weighing 180 g.
