Low budjet Android KitKat Phones under Rs 10,000

The budget segment of smartphones in Indian market is pretty hot right now. Motorola ignited the fire with the launch of Motorola Moto G earlier this year and carried it on to a very different level with the launch of Moto E smartphone. Motorola made it very clear that the company will be targeting the budget conscious buyers by offering good specs, build and features at a very reasonable price tag.

With the launch of Moto E in India the local manufacturers jumped on and launched budget smartphones with cutting edge features, some of the budget phones launched under 10K price category are better than Motorola’s Moto E smartphone. Let us have a look at the best Android phones under 10,000 price category.

#1. Motorola Moto E

Motorola launched the Moto E only about two months ago, following which other manufacturers launched their budget horses in the market. In terms of looks and build quality the Moto E gets a very good score, nothing innovative in terms of design but the build quality is brilliant. It tough and sturdy and has decent specs for its price. This device costs Rs 7,000 and only lacks a front facing camera, everything else about this smartphone is amazing.

It also offers customizable back covers like Moto E and the best thing is that it comes for the same price as Moto E, Rs 7,000.
