Top 5 Smartphones Under Rs. 10,000

Are you in the marketplace to get a brand new mobile? There really are plenty of excellent choices today that will not break the bank, as cellphones under Rs. 20,000 can be called the main killers. But aside from this, there is also an excellent variety of smartphones offered at an acceptable budget that will still provide a great performance. There are some excellent choices that are under the budget range of Rs. 15,000. However, what in the event you are on a tighter budget? Here are some of the favourite smartphones as of March 2016, which will cost you less than Rs. 10,000.

As always, there are several caveats that have to be made clear. To begin with, although there are a few great smartphones under Rs 10,000, you will need to be open to some level of compromise. It is hardly likely that you simply are likely to get a cellphone that’s exceptional at everything, but given below are only the phones that got 7 or higher in expert ratings. There are quite several phones, but the price is given the most preference, so a little north of Rs. 10,000 means the smartphone is not in the list. Exactly the same holds true for the date cutoff – it is not likely to show up here, if a mobile phone is over half a year old.

With everything in your mind, have a look at the top picks for mobiles under Rs. 10,000:

Xiaomi Redmi Note 3

It is among the top rated cellphones having a particularly notable screen and battery life, only at the cost that doesn’t burns a hole in your pocket. But, the camera could’ve been better. The highlights are full HD display, 1.4GHz hexa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 650 processor with 2GB RAM. Price Rs. 9,999

Coolpad Note 3 Lite

It is among the cheaper phones out there to incorporate a fingerprint detector, plus in addition it has great battery life. Charging takes a comparatively long time so before leaving house, be sure to juice up the phone. The winning features include: 1.3GHz quad-core MediaTek MT6735 processor, 3GB RAM, 16GB internal storage which is expandable up to 32 GB. Price Rs. 6,999

Meizu M2

The Meizu M2 offers excellent value for money and seems good but the applications might be somewhat complex, and camera operation must have been better. On other fronts it performs nicely, helping it making for the areas where it falls short. Price Rs. 6,999

Yu Yunique

The camera is a small letdown. However, it is a candy looking phone with a great display of 720×1280 pixels. The best part is it gives almost a stock-Android experience. Price Rs. 6,279

Intex Cloud Flash

Its high points are screen and its operation, but the battery life is somewhat unsatisfactory. It runs Android 5.1 OS, supports two Micro-SIM, and powered by a 2300mAh non removable battery. Price Rs. 6,999

Samsung Galaxy Note 6 Release Date, Price, Specs and Everything You Needed to Know

Samsung’s camp is abuzz with activity, with the imminent launch of the next-generation Samsung Galaxy Note to be just a few months away. There are many exciting rumors floating around the internet that the forthcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 6 is poised to potentially change the smartphone game and bring it to the next level. In this article, we take a look at all the buzzes and speculations surrounding the many features of the upcoming premium smartphone from Samsung.

Rumored features and specifications of the Galaxy Note 6


Not much is known about the design yet, but the Galaxy Note 6 may sport the glass and metal exterior that the South Korean tech giant seems to have made standard for all its high-end devices. The Note 6 will likely have the same basic shape as its predecessor.


In terms of its screen, which is indisputably one of the best features of the Galaxy Note 5, the Note 6 is expected to come with a whopping 5.8-inch Super AMOLED screen, although it is suggested this may increase to 6 inches. That’s not all, either. Samsung is allegedly working on a new smartphone with a bendable display to be released in 2016. It doesn’t take a marketing genius to figure out that a phone with foldable screen would be a geek’s dream coming to life and – if done well – will sell like hotcakes. It looks really revolutionary, but it is still unclear whether Samsung will offer a “Premium Edition” of the upcoming flagship with a foldable display.

Pressure-sensitive feature

The Samsung Galaxy Note 6 may feature a pressure-sensitive screen technology. The pressure sensitive technology works similar to Apple’s 3D Touch display released with its iPhone S6. It isn’t out of the ordinary to see Samsung following Apple’s footsteps. It has been known to do it quite well given its past records.


The camera will obviously be the center of attention. The rumor mills reported that this phablet will sport one of the best, highest-quality cameras you will find on any smartphone. A 30-megapixel primary camera (coupled with Sony Sensor) and 16-megapixel selfie snapper is expected to meet the shooting needs of the user. This would be a worthy upgrade over the 16-megapixel primary shooter and 5-megapixel front-facing camera on the Galaxy Note 5. The camera is expected to bring along a plethora of new, much-needed features, including 4K video recording and Optical Image Stabilization (OIS).

Under the hood: quad-core Snapdragon SoC and Exynos Chipset

Now let’s talk about what will be under the hood powering the Galaxy Note 6. One thing that looks certain for the new smartphone is the inclusion of a Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 820 SoC though certain variants of the device will run Samsung’s own Exynos processor.

How Much RAM will the device have?

The Galaxy Note 6 will be the world’s first ever smartphone to ship with 8GB of RAM. The fact that the Note 6 will feature 4GB of RAM more than its predecessor, could indicate Samsung has some pretty big plans for the device. Rumors say that the Note 6 will be a laptop hybrid and a smartphone. The company already received a patent for what is known as its next-generation notebook running a dual-OS with a phablet dock. If the technology is featured in the Galaxy Note 6, the phablet would naturally run Android when in smartphone mode. When it is docked inside a notebook, it would automatically switch to running the Windows OS.

Speculation about the Battery

Earlier this year, rumors popped up about the Samsung Galaxy Note 6 potentially packing a mammoth 4000mAh battery. The battery in the Note 6 is also likely to be non-removable. Rapid charging and wireless charging technology will also be supported on the phone.


The phone will come with three different internal storage variants: 64GB, 128GB and 256GB. Many were disappointed when Samsung discarded the microSD card slot last year. However, many are expecting that it will be brought back in the Galaxy Note 6.

Samsung Galaxy Note 6 Key Features

Display: 5.8-inch Super AMOLED display

Operating System: Android 6.0 Marshmallow

Processor: Snapdragon 820 SoC + Samsung’s Exynos chipset


ROM: 64/128/256GB

Rear camera: 30MP

Secondary camera: 16MP

Battery: 4000mAh

Release Date

As for the release date, Samsung traditionally launched the Note at the IFA show in Berlin, but in 2015 it went early and announced the Galaxy Note 5 in August. If Samsung sticks to its usual release schedule, we can expect the Note 6 to be unveiled either in August or in September 2016. Hopefully, it will be worth the wait.


Unfortunately, pricing hasn’t been confirmed yet for the Galaxy Note 6 but we can definitely say it is not going to be cheap. Considering its premium build, those who want to buy this phone will have to shell out about $800 to $1200.

Oppo Find7 Review – An Unassuming Powerhouse

Oppo is one of the mobile makers that people always seem to brush aside, mainly because of the huge fanbases of some of the bigger phone manufacturers. However, the company has been quite successful through the years with going under the radar and surprising everyone with a great phone offering. This time, they plan on surprising people once again using their new flagship phone, the Oppo Find7.

Design and Function

The exterior design of the Oppo Find7 is, for a lack of a better term, conservative. The Find 7 looks plain, and dare I say it, a bit boring, compared to the flagship phones of rival companies that have flashy and innovative designs. The front face is all black; the sides of the phone are flat and lack any embellishments at all.

However, even though the Find7 may seem bland design-wise, it is ergonomic. The curved and faux carbon fiber back plate makes it easy to hold, and even though the phone is mostly made of plastic, it does feel solid and well-made.

You will need to have a good grip on the Find7 because it is quite large, and that is thanks to its 5.5″ Quad HD screen. Although the design of the phone is unassuming, it may have been deliberately done so you will have nothing to distract you from the beautiful HD display.

Hardware and Performance

Under the hood, you will find a substantial collection of hardware. There’s the 2.5GHz quad-core Snapdragon 801 CPU that provides more than enough “oomph” for most mobile users. It also comes with 3GB of RAM and an Adreno 330 GPU so you can play even the most demanding of mobile games. The phone also uses their own ColorOS interface, which looks and feels a whole lot different from stock Android.
Unlike the previous Oppo N1, which has a really cool swiveling camera, the Find7 decided that it would stick with a traditional, fixed front and back camera.

The front camera is your run-of-the-mill 5MP front shooter, which is kind of a letdown because the Find7 is a flagship phone. However, the rear camera of the Find7 is a 13MP shooter using a Sony Exmore image sensor. The six-element lens makes for crystal clear pictures and videos. Speaking of videos, the rear shooter of the Find7 can shoot videos in 4K quality, which is actually quite impressive.

The camera software used by Oppo for the Find7 is actually nifty. It offers a number of shooting modes and settings, most notable of all is the Ultra-HD mode that takes 10 consecutive HD pics and stitches the best ones into a single 50MP image.

Price and Verdict

The Oppo Find7 retails at around US$600 without a subscription. Even though the outside of the phone is a little bit on the bland side, its performance and hardware is nothing to sneeze at. The Find7 can perform just as well, if not better than most of the other phones at its price bracket. The impressive screen display and powerhouse innards make the Find7 one of the best phones out there and it is definitely worthy of your attention.
