Best economic mobile phones for January 2021

Nowadays mobile phones are used for several purposes. Some of them are important and some of them for time pass.

What are the main use of mobile phones?

  1. Make calls
  2. Send Messages
  3. Surf Websites
  4. Capture your best moments
  5. Enter into online and offline applications.

To fulfill this, and average person only need a phone with price around 10,000 RS. Selecting a phone with maximum features is a himalayan task for few. Here are my list of budget phones for the month of January 2021.

5. Realme C15 3GB 32 GB

Realme C15 only have 3GB RAM and 32GB internal memory. You might be wondering why this phone entered into my top 5 budget phone list for the new decade.

Following are key elements making the Realme C15 in my favorite list.

  • 6.52 inch HD Display
  • 13MP AI Quad Camera
  • 6000 mAh battery

Realme C15 can be preferred for those who are looking for a good photography experience and huge battery backup.

4. Redmi 9 Prime 4GB 64GB

Redmi 9 Prime outperformed Realme C15 with its 4GB RAM and 64GB internal memory.

Other few features are

  • A descent 5020 mAh battery
  • 6.53 full HD Display
  • AI Quad Camera

3. Oppo A5 2020 3GB 64GB

Oppo A5 beaten Redmi 9 Prime with its Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 Octa core processor. I personally like Qualcomm processors over MediaTek.

Key other features include

  • 64 GB internal memory
  • Snapdragon 665 Octa Core Processor
  • 5000 mAh battery

2. Samsung Galaxy M11 3GB 32 GB

Even though the Galaxy M11 comes with 3GB RAM 32GB internal memory, the position of the selfi Camera given rank 2 in my list. Most of the under 10K range Smartphones comes with water drop Camera. Hence the punch hole Camera in the Galaxy M11 making it favorable for many. Moreover Samsung has more brand value than the other phones in the list. At least from my point for view. There is no need for an argument at this time.

Here are some of the other key features

  • Expandable memory support upto 512GB
  • Qualcomm octa core processor
  • 5000 mAh battery

1. Redmi 9 4GB 128 GB

While seeing the heading itself you might have noticed the heavy internal memory. Getting a Smartphone with 128GB under 10K is the only reason making Redmi 9 in the top of my list. 4GB RAM and 128GB internal memory gives enough room  for us store and capture whatever we wants.

Other Key features are

  • 5000 mAh battery
  • 6.53 HD display

Note: I have checked our main online ecommerce websites prior to writing this article. There might be small variations in the price when you check the price online. Sellers keep changing in Flipkart and Amazon. I’m sure that these phones can be purchased within 10000RS. If you see the price above 10000RS, please visit the site on a later point so that the seller with less price shows again.
