  1. 3 GB RAM | 32 GB ROM | MicroSD up-to 128 GB
  2. 5.5" HD Display 720p
  3. 13MP Primary Camera | 5MP Front Camera
  4. 5000 mAh Battery
  5. Dual Sim Device
  6. Available in Iron Grey, Fine Gold Colors

The highlight of this device is its massive 5000mAh battery which can provide 2-3 days of backup. The device looks like Moto G5 Plus but slightly bigger because of the 5.5-inch display. The build quality of the device is decent and the device looks good because of its metallic back. 

The back is removable and you can put 2 sim cards with a micro sd card of up to 128GB but the battery is not user removable. The display on the device is a 5.5 inch 720p HD display. The viewing angles are good and colours are accurate. It is expected to use less power because of its lower resolution. 

Below the display, we have a fingerprint sensor and above the display, we have a 5MP camera with flash. It is good to see Motorola coming up with front flash in budget devices which will surely attract selfie lovers. On the back, we have a 13MP primary camera whose performance is decent for a device of this price range. Inside we have a MediatekMTK6737 chipset with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage.

Overall Moto E4 Plus is a great device for those who are looking for a phone with great battery life which can handle light usage like calling, WhatsApp, Facebook and few games. This phone is not suitable for those who play heavy games like Asphalt, Fifa etc.

Moto E4 Plus is available only on Flipkart at Rs. 9999.

2. Redmi 4 32GB |  Rs. 8999

Redmi 4 Best Phone Under Rs. 10000


  1. 3 GB RAM | 32 GB ROM | MicroSD upto 128 GB
  2. 5" HD Display 720p
  3. 13MP Primary Camera | 5MP Front Camera
  4. 4100 mAh Battery
  5. Dual Sim Device
  6. Available in Black, Gold Colors

Redmi 4 is the successor to previous years Redmi 3S. Xiaomi has made a few changes in the newer model. The rounded body design is gone and newer design looks much better. The build quality is solid which is not usually seen in devices of this range. 

The display at the front is 720p HD display. The colours are accurate and touch responsiveness is also good. The display is covered by a 2.5D glass which gives it a premium look. On the back, there is a 13MP camera. The resolution is same as last year but the quality of images has improved a lot. The pictures look good. Near the camera, you will find a fingerprint sensor which is available in all variants of Redmi 4. 

On the inside, we have a newer chipset, Snapdragon 435 which is an entry level chipset with decent performance and good power efficiency. In RAM and storage department we have 3 options : 2GB/16GB, 3GB/32GB and 4GB/64GB. 

We do not recommend the 2GB/16GB variant as MIUI is not an optimized OS and the phone might hang with just 2GB of RAM. So go for the 3GB/32GB model if your usage is calling. WhatsApp, Facebook and games. 4GB/64GB variant is suitable for those who like to keep a lot of photos, videos and apps on their phone. 

With great battery life, good camera, decent gaming performance, Overall Redmi 4 is an excellent device at this price point. 

Redmi 4 32GB is available only on Amazon at Rs. 8999 via Flash Sale.

  1. 3 GB RAM | 32 GB ROM | MicroSD upto 128 GB
  2. 5" Full HD Display 1080p
  3. 13MP Primary Camera | 8MP Front Camera
  4. 4000 mAh Battery
  5. Dual Sim Device
  6. Available in Grey, Silver, Gold Colors

Lenovo K6 Power is the cheapest device from Lenovo with a metallic build. The phone feels nice in hand and is easy to use thanks to its 5-inch screen size. The display on the front is a Full HD IPS display which is bright and accurate. We do not usually see 5-inch 1080p displays in this price range so thumbs up to Lenovo for that. 

On the back, there is a 13MP camera which is capable of taking some very nice pictures. The low light performance is okay as well. Overall the camera does a good job. Under the camera, there is a fingerprint sensor which is quick and accurate. 

On the inside, we have a Snapdragon 430 Chipset with 3GB of RAM, 32GB of storage and a huge 4000mAh battery. The efficient chipset with the huge battery means you will get 2 days of backup easily. There is another variant of the phone with 4GB RAM as well and those who use a lot of apps can go for that variant. 

Overall it gives tough competition to the Redmi 4 which will cost you 1000 less but has an inferior 720p display.  K6 Power should be your choice if you need a phone with a better display, better speakers and better software.

Lenovo K6 Power is available only Flipkart at Rs.9999.
