Best Phones Under Rs. 10,000 in India:

1. OPPO A37f

The OPPO A37 uses a front beauty camera with extra-large 1.4μm pixels and a 1/4-inch sensor. This allows for more light to enter the camera, so you can take a bright and natural-looking selfie even in low-light conditions. Using a light-sensitive sensor that adjusts the screen brightness perfectly to your face, the A37 will allow you to take great selfies regardless of the light conditions.

This phone sports an 8 Megapixel Rear Camera, featuring an Ultra-HD shooting mode, for capturing exceptionally clear and detailed photos. The phone is a bit low on the battery capacity compared to the other top phones under Rs. 10000. A quad core processor is yet another set back for the model as you can get an octa-core processor for this price range.

The storage capacity is almost similar to the rest and ships with the Lollipop version of Android. It’s a really a selfie expert and if you are quite into them, this model is good one to go for.

7. Coolpad Note 5 Lite

The phone has typical budget-level specifications. It is powered by a 1.4GHz Quad core MediaTek 6735 processor.
