Many a times we lose our premium smartphones or break them
and need a temporary or cheap replacement. Or maybe you need to buy your 'not
so tech-savvy' parents a new mobile. Perhaps you want to gift your teenage
child a smartphone but do not wish to spend too much, then you would probably
be looking at something less than Rs 5000. We have compiled a list of 5
smartphones that come under this price bracket.
5) Lava P7+
The Lava P7+ comes at a price of Rs 4999 and packs a 5 inch
HD IPS display with a 2.5D curved glass. It runs Android 6.0 and is powered by
a 1.3GHz MeadiaTek quad-core processor and 1GB RAM. While there is 8GB of
internal storage, you can add a microSD card of up to 64GB. There is an 8MP
shooter at the back and a 5MP camera for selfies at the front. Both the cameras
get LED flashes. A 2500mAh battery is
present to power your device through the day. However this mobile does not
support 4G which might be a deal breaker for some.
4) Intex Cloud Q11
The Cloud Q11 from Intex has a large 5.5inch 1280X720p
display with an IPS panel and runs on Android 6.0 (Marshmallow). There is a
1.3GHz quad core MT6580 processor with Mali 400 GPU and 1GB RAM. You get 8GB of
total internal storage with an option to expand it up to 64GB using a microSD
card. You get an 8MP rear and 5MP front facing camera. The device also packs a
2800mAh batter but sadly this dual SIM device also does not support 4G. The
Intex Cloud Q11 is priced at Rs 4499.
3) LYF Flame 8
The biggest selling point of the LYF Flame 8 is the fact
that it is 4G VoLTE enabled and also comes with the Jio SIM offer. There is a
1.1GHz Snapdargon 210 quad core processor with 1GB RAM under the hood. There is
8GB internal storage which can be expanded to a staggering 128GB. The only let
down is the 4.5 inch FWVGA display which is less than what we are used to these
days but is a good display on its own. The 2000mAh battery is going to be more
than enough for this display size. In the camera department you get an 8MP AF
rear camera and a 5MP FF front facing camera. The device runs on a relatively
old Android 5.1 Lollipop.
2) XOLO ERA 1X
This device simply blew us away due to the amount of
features it has for just Rs 4999. It packs 4G VoLTE connectivity and comes with
a 5 inch HD IPS display and is powered by a 1.3GHz quad-core processor and has
1GB of RAM and 8GB ROM. The device runs Android Marshmallow and has a 2500mAh
battery. An 8MP front and 5MP rear shooter have been provided with slow motion,
time lapse and live photos capability. The only let down here is the 2 point
multi-touch capability but under most circumstances it will not be a hindrance.
1) Yu Yunique Plus
Our top pick for the list is Yu Yunique Plus which is priced
at Rs 4999. This 4G enabled device is powered by a 64-bit 1.2GHz Snapdragon 410
quad-core processor. There is 2GB of RAM to allow for a great multitasking
experience. There is a 4.7 inch HD
display that is protected by Gorilla Glass 3. The 8GB of internal storage can
be expanded up to 32GB. However this device runs Android Lollipop with no news
of updates till now. While you get an 8MP camera at the rear that can shoot
FullHD videos, the front houses a 2MP camera.
