2. Realme C3

Realme C3 smartphone would take you slightly over the Rs. 10000 mark but not by much, maybe a few hundred rupees. However, if your budget can stretch to that mark or you get it on sale, it is a very good choice - best smartphone under 10000. Realme C3 came into the market in February 2020.

Realme C3 comes with 2.30 GHz Cortex-A75 and Mediatek Helio G70 chipset and Mali-G52 GPU. In the Rs. 10000 price band stretch expect 3GB RAM with 32GB storage. It is a bit similar to Oppo A12.

Dual rear cameras on Realme C3 are 12 MP & 2MP vs the 13 MP & 2MP ones on Oppo A12. The display screen at 6.5 inches and display resolution is slightly better at 720x1600 vs 720x1520 on Oppo A12 – marginal difference only.

Because of the Helio G70 chipset this smartphone has made it to the second place. Expect better gaming and multitasking experience than Oppo A12 or any of the other smartphones in the under Rs. 10000 price band (except for the new Redmi 9 Prime). If your budget allows for it go for Realme C3.

3. Oppo A12

The new Oppo A12 6.22 inch smartphone launched in the market in April 2020. Comes with 2.35 GHz Cortex-A53 and Mediatek Helio P35 chipset and PowerVR GE8320 GPU. It comes with all the standard features you would see in mid-range smartphones like, dual rear cameras, finger-print sensor on the back and other sensors.

However, it sports a lower resolution @720x1520 IPS LCD Gorilla glass 3 display and microUSB port. It’s closest competitor Redmi 8A Dual has Gorilla glass 3 and USB-C port. However, it’s rear finger-print sensor is a big plus. It comes in two colours, black and blue. See the list for more on the specifications.

Performance wise the Helio P35 chipset gives 20% better than other smartphones in this price range. It has enough power to play mostly 2D games. You will see better performance for other popular games like PUBG, but expect to see frame drops due to lower resolution display and CPU power.

To play PUBG comfortably enough one of the latest midrange smartphones would work well. With a power efficient CPU, the 4230 mAh battery lasts longer between charges.

This is the best Oppo mobile under 10000. Only reason one may want to select from a higher price range would be for the low-resolution display, better CPU for popular games like PUBG and camera performance.

4. Redmi 9

Xiaomi Redmi 9 6.53 inch smartphone launched in the market in August 2020. Comes with Cortex-A53, Mediatek Helio G35 chipset and PowerVR GE8320.

Redmi 9 checks off on all the key features with Gorilla glass display, rear fingerprint sensor, microUSB port, GPS and most of the key sensors. See the list for more on the specifications. Gorilla glass display and IPS LCD 720x1600 screen give decent visibility even in bright outdoor light.

Polycarbonate body and frame with good finish allow for a good grip. Performance wise the CPU has enough power to play mostly 2D games. Lower resolution display and CPU power result in video frame drops for popular games like PUBG. Go with 4GB RAM and 64GB storage version for a smooth performance with loading multiple tabs in the browser and faster loading of websites.

The 5000 mAh non-removable battery gives a long life between charges. It comes with 10W charger.

This is one of the best Redmi phones under 10000. It competes with Oppo A12 head-on on the spec front. Oppo A12 being lighter by 30gm and 0.30-inch smaller display may be a better option because of ease of handling on the go. If not the discomfort of slightly bigger size, the weight would be felt if the mobile is frequently used.

6. Vivo Y11

The Vivo Y11 was released in 2019 but still it gives a tough competition to most phones in this price range. It has almost the same specs as Redmi 8A Dual, except for minor differences. It sports a 6.35 inches IPS LCD HD+ 720x1544 display.

Like Redmi 8A has Comes with octa-core Cortex-A53, Qualcomm Snapdragon 439 chipset and Adreno 505 GPU. It comes in 3 GB RAM and 32 GB ROM version only, which is the minimum memory configuration for a good balanced performance smartphone. It comes with all the standard features you would see in the smartphones these days. See the list for more on the specifications.

Performance wise on par with Redmi 8A Dual 3GB RAM, can play 2D games comfortably and multiple web page load is okay. With a power efficient CPU, the 5000 mAh battery lasts longer between charges.

If you need to use dual SIMs and microSD card, then Redmi Dual 8A is a better choice, as Vivo Y11 shares the second SIM slot for microSD card, does not have fast charge option, which makes it second to Redmi 8A. But a finger-print sensor is a big plus on Vivo Y11.

Otherwise, you can either pick Vivo Y11 or Redmi 8A Dual as both are almost the same, except for minor differences. Check out the additional info tables to select either one.

7. Samsung M01

Samsung M01 competes with Redmi 8A dual head-on. It was released in June 2020 and has the same CPU and chipset as Redmi 8A dual. However, Samsung M01s has 5.7 inch PLS TFT capacitive display. Xiaomi Redmi 8A 6.2 inch smartphone launched in the market in February 2020. Comes with 1.95 GHz Cortex-A53, Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 chipset. It comes only with 3GB RAM, which is anyway needed for smooth performance, an issue often seen with 2GB Redmi variants.

Performance wise the CPU has enough power to play mostly 2D games. Lower resolution display and CPU power result in video frame drops for popular games like PUBG. The 4000 mAh non-removable battery gives a long life between charges.

Which one to choose between the two? One would not go wrong with either of these smartphones in this price range. The key difference between the two smartphones is the glass screen on Samsun M01 vs Gorilla screen of the Redmi 8A Dual. Aside from that, front facing is the 5MP front camera on Samsung M01 vs 8MP on the Redmi 8A Dual, which may not make all that big a difference being mostly for selfies. The smaller size at 5.7-inch display and lighter at 168gm are an attractive proposition for some people.

For those looking for the larger 6.2” screen and fingerprint sensor Samsung smartphone, Samsung M01s is a good choice. It has the same specifications as Samsung M01, except for slightly low powered Mediatek Helio P22 CPU and Android 9 OS.

8. Oppo A5S

Oppo A5S 6.2 inch smartphone was launched in the market in March 2019. It is similar to Oppo A12 Comes with 2.3 GHz Cortex-A53 and Mediatek Helio P35 chipset and PowerVR GE8320 GPU.

Oppo A5S comes with all the standard features you would see in mid-range smartphones like, dual rear cameras, finger-print sensor on the back and other sensors. However, it sports a lower resolution @720x1520 IPS LCD Gorilla glass 3 display and microUSB port. Similar to Oppo A12 it comes with rear finger-print sensor, a big plus. It has a higher megapixel front camera at 8MP f/2.0 vs Oppo A12’s 5MP. See the list for more on the specifications.

Performance wise the Helio P35 chipset gives 20% better than other smartphones in this price range. It has enough power to play mostly 2D games. You will see better performance for other popular games like PUBG, but expect to see frame drops due to lower resolution display and CPU power. With a power efficient CPU, the 4230 mAh battery lasts longer between charges.

Why is this phone further down in the recommended list? It is a year older, comes with Android Oreo 8.1 which may at most get just another software upgrade. It is heavier at 170 gm, previous version of Bluetooth 4.2 and does not support fast charging like Oppo A12.Also Oppo A12 is more competitively priced than Oppo A5S. If you are looking at Samsung M01, then you can consider this phone as well for performance reasons. However, it still is a very good smartphone under Rs. 10,000

9. Redmi 9A

The new Redmi 9A 6.53 inch smartphone launched in the market in September 2020. Comes with octa-core 2.0 GHz Cortex-A53 and Mediatek Helio G25 chipset and PowerVR8320 GPU. Of all the mobiles reviewed so far, this has an underpowered chipset. It comes in 2/3 GB RAM and 32 GB ROM versions only.

Redmi 9A has only one rear camera and a front selfie camera. Interestingly the rear camera has 28mm wide angle lens and video at 60fps compared to 30fps in all other smartphones reviewed here. It comes with all the standard features you would see in the smartphones these days.

Display is similar to most other smartphones below Rs.10000, lower resolution @720x1600 IPS LCD Gorilla glass 3 display and microUSB port. The 3GB RAM version definitely makes it a better option than the Realme C11. See the list for more on the specifications.

Performance wise the Helio G25 chipset gives much lower than the other smartphones with P35/G35 chipset. Skip the 2GB version and go for 3GB RAM. The smartphone is good for most common tasks and may be 2D games. Ease of use perspective, weight and size do not make it a good choice. With a power efficient CPU, the 5000 mAh battery lasts longer between charges.

10. Realme C11

Realme smartphones are from the sister company Oppo. Even though they are labeled as budget smartphones vs Oppo’s premium smartphones, Realme smartphones are one of the best performing smartphones in the budget and midrange price bands. In a short time they have become quite popular with the financially discerning Indian consumers.

Realme C11 launched in July 2020 comes packed with good features and specifications. It competes with the latest Oppo A12 in this price range, with similar features and performance. It has the same version of CPU and GPU as Oppo A12, but has a bigger display at 6.5 inches and larger battery at 5000 mAh. Performance wise expect the same as Oppo A12. However, Realme comes with only a 2GB/32GB version, limiting its usability for multiple webpage loads and multiple apps open at the same. Gaming also has a similar issue.

With resolution being almost the same, expect slightly degraded picture if not the same as Oppo A12 because of the bigger display. Also the convenient fingerprint sensor is missing from the Realme C11. The chipset Mediatek Helio G35 is the same as the Oppo A12 P35, except for different technology used to fabricate the chipset.

Recommendation would be to go for Oppo A12 or other phones reviewed here, just because of 2GB RAM limitation and absent fingerprint sensor on Realme C11. If you use the phone sparingly with multitasking and no games then Realme C11 is definitely a good choice among the smartphones under Rs. 10000.
