If you have a tight budget or aren't looking to invest more than Rs. 10,000 on a smartphone, here are the best options in the price range for you.

Phones under Rs. 10,000 offer some good features such as build quality, the ability to run a smartphone OS smoothly, access to a large number of apps, so on and so forth. On the other hand, to maintain the low price point, they compromise on some features such as the camera, display quality, built in storage and more.
