Brand and Model Realme 3i
Dimensions 156.10*76.60*8.30
Weight 175
Battery 4230
Color Diamond Black, Blue, Red
Resolution 720*1520pixels
Processor 2GHz octa-core(MediaTek Helio P60(MT6771))
RAM & Internal Storage 4GB & 64GB
Rear Camera 13-megapixel(f/1.8)+2-megapixel
Front Camera 13-megapixel

 It is the best combo of Realme and MediaTek Helio P60 under 10k. This product comes with MediaTek Helio P60. Helio P60 is the best processor from MediaTek. The Realme 3i is a budget offering, which slots between the Realme C2 and Realme 3 in the company’s portfolio. The phone looks very similar to the Realme 3, except for the diamond pattern on the back, instead of a glossy finish. The phone is light. It’s powered by a MediaTek Helio P60 SoC and comes with either 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage or with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. The phone also runs on ColorOS 6, which is based on Android 9 Pie.

General performance is good. Apps run smoothly and the phone doesn’t heat up too much. The 13-megapixel rear camera has decently quick autofocus but images are strictly average in most cases. Landscapes lack good detail and close-up shots are missing a sense of depth. Chroma Boost is helpful in boosting colors, while Nightscape helps brighten up low-light scenes but there’s a lot of Chroma noise. Battery life is good as the 3i will easily last for a day and a half but charging the phone is a slow process. This phone is available in three colors: diamond black, Diamond blue and diamond red.

 

Vivo U10 – (Rs.8990)


Best Phone under 10000 rupees

Key specification:

Brand and Model Vivo U10

Rear Camera 13-megapixel(f/2.2)+8-megapixel(f/2.2)+2-megapixel(f/2.4)
Front Camera 8-megapixel(f/1.8)

This phone’s features are really great and as we know that every smartphone have cons but according to this price the cons can reject.  Vivo is offering a large 5000mAh battery, three rear cameras, and the relatively powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 processor. Design isn’t a strong point, and the U10 looks a lot like several other Vivo models.

The 6.35-inch HD+ screen has a waterdrop notch for the front camera. This phone is relatively bulky and not everyone will find it easy to hold and use. You can get this phone with 3GB or 4GB of RAM, and 32GB or 64GB of storage. All the basics are covered, including a fingerprint sensor on the rear, and you even get 18W fast charging which is good for the budget segment. Performance is pretty good overall, and very competitive for the price. The cameras aren’t very versatile and photo quality is just average. Battery life was excellent in our tests

Realme 5 – (Rs.9800)


Best Phone under 10000 rupees

Key specification:

Brand and Model Realme 5
Dimensions 164.40*75.60*9.30
Weight 198.00
Battery 5000
Color Crystal Blue, Crystal Purple
Resolution 720*1600pixels
Processor 2GHz octa-core (Qualcomm Snapdragon 665)
RAM & Internal Storage 3GB & 32GB
Rear Camera 12-megapixel(f/1.8, 1.25-micron)+8-megapixel(f/2.25)+2-megapixel(f/2.4)+2-megapixel(f/2.4)
Front camera 13-megapixel

This phone is a beast that takes and eats other under 20000 mobiles. The Realme 5 features an updated crystal pattern on the back and retains the polycarbonate build and laminated plastic back panel of its predecessor. The phone has is a little heavy at nearly 200g and features a big 6.5-inch HD+ display. The low resolution isn’t a huge issue as colors and brightness are still quite good. The Realme 5 has a slot on the side for two Nano-SIM cards and a dedicated slot for a microSD card.

It runs on ColorOS 6.0.1, which features a flatter and simpler looking interface, closer to stock Android 9 Pie. You get a bunch of customization options too such as gestures and shortcuts. The phone is powered by a Snapdragon 665 SoC and comes in three variants. The top-end version which we reviewed has 4GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. App and gaming performance is good and the phone doesn’t heat up too much.

Realme 5 has four cameras at the back, which is the first phone to have such an arrangement under Rs. 10,000. Besides the primary camera and depth sensor, Realme has also added a wide-angle and a macro lens, which are useful. The 13-megapixel selfie camera also has electronic stabilization for videos. Overall, the cameras perform well under good light but struggle to capture good detail in low light.

Realme 5 has a 5000mAh battery, which easily lasts for a day and a half or even more on one charge. Unfortunately, fast charging isn’t supported. Overall, the Realme 5’s base variant (3GB of RAM, 32GB of storage) offers the best value at Rs. 9,800 but even the 128GB version at Rs. 11,999 is still good value, considering the overall package.

 

Xiaomi Redmi note 7s – (Rs.9989)


Best Phone under 10000 rupees

Key Specification:

Brand and Model Xiaomi Redmi Note 7s
Dimensions 159.21*75.21*8.10
Weight 186
Battery 4000
Resolution 1080*2340 pixels
Processor 2.2GHz octa-core(4*2.2GHz + 4*1.8GHz)(Qualcomm Snapdragon 660)
RAM & Internal Storage 3GB & 32GB
Rear Camera 48- megapixel(f/1.79, 1.6-micron+ 5-megapixel)
Front camera 13-megapixel(f/2.0, 1.12-micron)

 

The Redmi Note 7S is a budget smartphone from Xiaomi that sits between its Redmi Note 7 and Redmi Note 7 Pro. Xiaomi has kept the design identical, hence it is hard to distinguish between these three smartphones. The Redmi Note 7S has a 6.3-inch full-HD+ display with Corning Gorilla Glass 5 for protection. We liked that the display had good viewing angles and was bright enough to be legible when outdoors.

Xiaomi has opted for a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 SoC to power the Redmi Note 7S and it does deliver a lag-free experience. Our unit had 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage, a lower variant with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage is also available at a lower price.

Just like other Xiaomi smartphones, this too runs on MIUI. Our unit was running MIUI 10.3 on top of Android 9.0. There are a few customizations that are useful but we also encountered spammy notifications. The camera setup is different compared to the Redmi Note 7 as it gets a 48-megapixel primary sensor and a 5-megapixel depth sensor.  At the front, it has a 13-megapixel selfie shooter. Overall, the Redmi Note 7S offers good camera performance.

Xiaomi has managed to pack in a 4,000mAh battery in the Redmi Note 7S which offers good battery life. The Redmi Note 7S is a good smartphone but you can consider the Redmi Note 7 and the Asus ZenFone Max Pro M2 as direct alternatives. If you don’t mind spending a little extra, you can consider the Redmi Note 7 Pro.

 

Infinix S5 Pro – (Rs.9999)


Best Phone under 10000 rupees

Key specification:

Brand and Model Infinix S5 pro
Dimensions 162.50*76.88*8.95
Weight(g) 194.00
Battery 4000
Colors Forest Green, Violet
Resolution 1080*2220
Processor 2.3GHz octa-core(MediaTek Helio P35 (MT6765))
RAM & Internal storage 4GB & 64GB
Rear Camera 48-megapixel(f/1.79)+2-megapixel
Front Camera 16-megapixel(f/2.0)

 

Infinix S5 Pro claims to be the most affordable phone in the market that packs a pop-up selfie camera. The phone’s full-HD+ notch-less display is crisp and offers good viewing angles. The design of the phone is a bit too garish, but the build quality is decent. The MediaTek Helio P35 chip powering the phone is good only for day-to-day tasks but struggles when it comes to gaming. The 4,000mAh battery lasts a full day with regular usage, but the supplied charger takes almost 3 hours to charge the phone. Coming to the camera performance, the Infinix S5 Pro’s 48-megapixel camera clicks crisp photos. However, the dedicated low-light sensor does little to improve low-light photography. The pop-up front camera clicks serviceable selfies in well-lit conditions but struggles with retaining background elements and providing a proper bokeh effect.

 

So these are the best 10 smartphones with mind-blowing features that anybody can buy under 10k.
