Cell Phones Below 5000 in India

Internet is infested with the reviews and news about the latest high tech Apple or Android Smartphone’s, the price of which is close to your one eye or a leg. Phones below 5000 Indian rupees are not exactly such smart, super fast, sleek and trendy devices. But most of the Indians cannot afford or not willing to go for a mobile with higher price tags. The cheap Chinese mobiles rule in this segment. But still there are some high quality options too.

Major brands like Nokia, Samsung, Motorola or Sony Erricson have some models in below Rs 5000 section in India. Some Indian brands like Micromax and Karbonn have their offerings too. Nowadays, there are some android smartphones available under Rs 5000; like the Micromax A50 Ninja, A52, A45, Karbonn A5 etc. These phones will be discussed later in another hub.

You can have Android mobiles too in below Rs 5000 in India!

How to Select the Best Five?

It is very tough to select best five among so many good options. Phones below RS 5000 in India can be divided into five broad categories: Smart Phones, Touch Screen Phones, Dual Sim Phones, Full Keyboard Phones and Classical Phones.

There are admires for each types of mobile phones. It depends on personal choice. People who have a good costly phone want to buy a classical phone with long battery service. Some wants to get the test of an Android device without spending much money.

Here in this article I have tried to balance between different categories to choose the best five.
