It was just recently on a weekend getaway that I dropped my not-so-old smartphone, only to be left with a shattered display. It was Sunday noon and the drive back home was mostly clouded with thoughts of getting a new device, without having to wait for too long. With an order placed at night, about 10:45PM, the device reached my home within a few hours. Well, at 7:20 AM. While getting a device these days, is easier than zeroing on one. So, here's a list of smartphones for those looking for their next device with a budget between Rs 10,000 and Rs 15,000.
Xiaomi Redmi Note 3
At Rs 11,999, the 32GB Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 variant is a great option. What works in favour of the device is a great battery life and fast performance, but it would disappoint those looking for efficient camera in low light conditions. The specs sheet includes 5.5inch Full HD IPS LCD display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 650 SoC, 3GB RAM, 16MP rear camera and a 5MP front-facing camera.

Lenovo K4 Note
Next in the list is Lenovo's K4 Note priced at Rs 11,999. It comes with a 5.5-inch display with Full HD resolution, and under the hood it is powered by Mediatek MT6753 processor coupled with 3GB RAM. In our review, we found that the device has a good display, fingerprint scanner and delivers excellent performance overall. While there is a lot to love, there are also a few hiccups when it comes to the device. The camera and build quality could have been better. You can read our Lenovo K4 Note review here.
LeEco Le 2
The LeEco Le 2, comes in the second generation of LeEco devices, offering tremendous value for money at Rs 11,999. The powerful Snapdragon 652 chipset with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage are impressive features. In the sub-Rs 15,000 price bracket, the Le 2 certainly emerges as the phone to go for.

Moto G4 Plus
Motorola's fourth generation of the Moto G series, is another great option to consider for those looking for a close-to stock UI experience. The 32GB+3GB RAM variant of the G4 Plus is priced at Rs 14,450. The 16MP camera is impressive and the 5.5-inch Full HD display looks sharp and vivid for something at that price. The fingerprint scanner is very snappy and the performance is up to the mark. It is for those looking for a balance of quality rather than high-end performance. Here's our Moto G4 Plus review.
Huawei Honor 5C
Lastly, the Honor 5C is a good option for those looking for a blend of good design, appealing UI and a capable hardware. The Honor 5C offers a very similar looking design as the Honor 5X but feels a bit more refined. Honor 5C features a 5.2-inch full HD IPS display, HiSilicon Kirin 650 SoC, 2GB of RAM, Android 6.0 Marshmallow, 13MP rear snapper and 8MP unit to take selfies. Read the Huawei Honor 5C review.
