Best Mobiles for Rs 10k in India – July 2021
The Rs 10000 segment for mobiles in India is a very lucrative segment for mobile brands, but for customers it is the most toughest segment to choose a GOOD mobile. There are so many buyers and the market share is huge, so brands make the best money in this segment. But there are so many unpowered and overpriced mobiles in this segment. Misinformed decision can flush the entire Rs 10k you spent on that mobile, go down the drain. So here are my list of best mobiles you can buy in Rs 10k, right now (July 2021) in India.
Easily the best mobile in this segment. Just close your eyes and go for it. The design and build quality is the best in this segment. With a full HD display and Snapdragon 662, this is the most powerful mobile you can get today for Rs 10k. A massive 6000 mAH battery and a 6 GB RAM with 64 GB storage, the base variant is now priced at Rs 10999.
Moto G10 Power
Easily the next best mobile would be the Moto G10 Power. At Rs 9999, this mobile comes with a 4 GB RAM, 64 GB ROM, 6.51 inch, HD+ Display, 48MP quad camera and 6000 mAh Battery. It is powered by an entry level Snapdragon 460 Processor, which is much lower than the SD 662 on Poco M3.
Infinix Hot 10S
This mobile is a beast in this category. The Mediatek G85 processor is a very powerful entry level gaming chipset and it is much more capable than SD 662 or SD 460. Infinix Hot 10S has 4 GB RAM, 64 GB ROM, 6.82 inch HD+ Display and all that powered by a 6000 mAh battery. The display is a 90 Hz refresh rate display which is a rare in this segment.
Micromax In 1
The homegrown brand made a come back this year and their In 1 model which starts at Rs 9999 for 4 GB / 64 GB variant is also a good choice in this segment. It is powered by MediaTek G80 processor and has a Full HD+ display. Like other mobiles in this segment, it also has a 48 MP main camera. It is powered by a 5000 mAh battery and comes with near stock android experience.
Word of caution
In this segment, Samsung mobiles are not good. They are under powered and over priced, so if you need to buy Samsung, I suggest you increase your budget to above 17k or 18k. Also stay from from Realme, Vivo and Oppo mobile in this segment. Xiaomi is yet to update the 9 Series to 10 series in this segment.
