Best Budget Phone Under Rs. 15,000
A lot of friends have been asking me about the best smartphone available under the budget of Rs. 15,000 in Pakistan. Its a very tough decision indeed . There are so many phones available in this range and the good news is that there are pretty good options available. Smartphones are becoming more powerful and cheaper every day. Phones available in Rs .25,000-30,000 range two years back are now available in Rs. 15,000.
So I started looking for the best option in this range and there were more then a dozens of choices I could see. I have picked the four best options I could see in this range. The phones I picked were
- Qmobile LT 10 Linq
- Gfive President G10 Octacore
- Samsung Galaxy core 2
- Microsoft Lumia 535
Now I have picked two phones from the local brans and two from international. For some people brand names are important but i must tell you that the difference in performance now a days has been reduced pretty much.
Lets compare these phones and then decide which is the best option here.
So lets start with Samsung Galaxy Core 2. You should only buy this phone if you love samsung and you are loyal to them , or you love the Ad thats on TV all the time. ( I have to agree that the TV Ad has a catchy tune ) . This is the worst choice you can make this in the range. the phone comes with only 768 mb RAM and TFT screen with only 480 x 800 resolution. This phone has 5 year old specs.
Microsoft Lumia 535 is a very good option , if you are not inclined towards getting an android only. Windows 8.1 is a stable and very smooth OS , All the top 100 apps are available in it. Lumia phones are known to have good solid build quality as well , Also if you love selfies then Lumia 535 is the best option here , since it comes with a wide angle front camera. Performance wise Lumia 535 beats the other in the range with a snapdragon processor.
If however you really want an android phone then the best option here is the Gfive G10 Octacore. It has an Octa core processor. full HD Display , Best Battery and a not so bad camera as well. I am however not a big fan of Gfive cameras. I wouldnt say that they have the best cameras, But otherwise its cheaper then Qmobile LT 10 and has better specs.
