Best Smartphones Under 10000 Rupees [December 2020]

The range of smartphones under 10000 Rupees is the most price-sensitive segment.

I understand that the difference of every thousand Rupees matters a lot.

Hence I will try my level best to recommend the most value for money products in this segment.

No doubt, the choices are very less. There are hardly 2-3 brands that are providing the right smartphone deals in this price range.
