Best Phones Under 10000 | India | 2013

Updated on March 14, 2013

Below Rs. 10000 Mobiles in India

There are hundreds of models of mobile available in India below Rs. 10000. Among these it is a stupendous task to find out the best ones.

Priya is a sweet looking teen aged girl. She asked me yesterday to give her a list of best phones under 10000. That is her budget and she wants a mobile which will be, off course cute and powerful. She wanted to have a phone from which she can show her beauty and ada to the world via facebook.

After some market research I have complied this list. Hope, it will be beneficial to you too, if you are looking for a mobile below Rs. 10000.

Most of these phones are Android Smartphone. There are three symbian smartphones too and also one blackberry.

N.B.: if you are a sweet girl like Priya then let me know I like pretty girls!

      You suck pinappu, I mean what do you mean by saying this, "The problem with Karbonn A9 is it is made by Karbonn Mobiles, an Indian brand."

      and then after you say, "Otherwise, this phone has the best configurations in below Rs.10,000 segment in India"

      you are beaten by the insect of racism, get cured as soon as possible. It 'ill be good for the people around you and firstly for you.

      If you want a fast phone with smooth operations then Nokia 500 is much better than Samsung Galaxy Y. But if you want thousands of various apps and other facilities of Android then go for Samsung Galaxy Y.

      I really appreciate Nokia for their splendid hardware. I have a Nokia 5800 for 4 years without any problems! It has been dropped countless times, often gathers dust for being neglected for a long time ( fate of an old phone!) but it still is the same device without any problem. I use it as a 3G modem and it is much faster then the dedicated modems.
