Quick points to remember before making your purchase:
  • Since your budget is Rs 10000, we assume that you are looking for a smartphone (and not a feature phone). Apple iPhone’s are not available in this price bracket, so your only options would be smartphones powered by Google Android or Microsoft Windows operating systems.
  • Android is the most popular OS for mobile phones under 8000, 9000 or 10000. Microsoft has a couple of good phones in this price range, but the Google Play Store has the widest range of application and games. So pick Windows only if you use your smartphone for phone calls, text messages, Whatsapp and a few other basic tasks, otherwise go with Android.
  • One of the most important decisions to make before buying a phone is the ‘Screen Size’. Smaller phones that are easier to handle with one hand are under 5 inches. If you want a large screen, we suggest that you don’t opt for phones that are larger than 5.5 inches.
  • Manufacturers like Motorola, Huwaei, Asus, Xiaomi sell their phones exclusively on online stores like Flipkart. Most of their popular phones are not available in the local market. It’s safe to purchase phones online, almost all online retailers have the ‘Cash On Delivery’ option.
