Earlier low cost smartphones meant compromising on features and build quality but today with stiff competition in the market one can easily get their hands on a smartphone running on a quad-core processor with sturdy build quality.

The looks and build of the S5 Titanium are fairly good and the smartphone comes at a price tag of Rs. 9,999.
Xolo has been producing some sturdy smartphones in India and here is another powerful device in terms of performance.

The price of the Galaxy S Duos is Rs. 9,700. We recommend the Samsung Galaxy S Duos for buyers who are specifically looking to buy a sub 10K smartphone from a top brand. Samsung certainly has better brand recall and higher standing in the market as compared to the other Android phone brands.
