Realme launched its new Narzo 30 series of smartphones including the Narzo 30A and Narzo 30 Pro.

Sporting the capable MediaTek Helio G80 SoC under the hood paired with 4GB of RAM, the Xiaomi Redmi 9 Prime is a good value for money smartphone under 10000. It's one of the few phones under 10K that can handle high-intensity gaming effortlessly without degrading the graphics too much. The phone features a Full-HD+ display and a sizable 5,020mAh battery that makes it an interesting budgetary proposition. The phone’s body is slightly curved on the sides which makes it comfortable to hold and grip, although it is slightly heavy at 198g. The 9 Prime is equipped with a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor that is pretty well-positioned. It is available in two storage options - 64GB or 128 GB. The former is available for under 10K. The phone runs MIUI on top of Android and there is a fair amount of bloatware installed on the device, as is common with Xiaomi devices that run MIUI. The Helio G80 SoC does decently well, the device scored a decent 197012 on AnTuTu and it runs games such as COD adequately well for the price. The battery life is pretty great as well, however, the provided 10W charger makes for some very slow charging. The phone does support 18W Fast Charging but you will need to buy it separately.

The POCO M2 is a solid choice in the sub 10K segment. It offers a good mix of performance and features. The phone is essentially the Redmi Note 9 Pro with a few tweaks here and there. It can handle multitasking and graphically-intensive games pretty well with its MediaTek Helio G80 chipset. You can get the 6GB RAM and 64GB storage variant for Rs 9,999, which makes it one of the few phones under 10000 to feature 6GB of RAM. You get a quad camera setup (13MP + 8MP + 5MP + 2MP) and an 8MP selfie camera. Additionally, there’s also a pretty sizable 5,000mAh battery that can easily provide light users with over a day of usage, maybe even 2 days. The phone supports 18W Fast Charging right out of the box as well. For the display, the Poco M2 sports a 6.53-inch FHD+ resolution display with a water drop cutout for the selfie camera. It is also protected by P2i splash and rust protection. The phone first launched at Rs 10,999 for the base variant but after the launch of its successor, the Poco M3 this year, the smartphone is now available at just under 10K.

Launched alongside the Motorola Moto G30, the Moto G10 Power is a battery-focused budget smartphone that seems to be like a step up from the Moto E7 Plus. These two phones are from different series but the G10 Power actually uses the same innards as the Moto E7 Plus with some added features. The phone comes in a single storage configuration featuring 4GB RAM and 64GB internal storage. The Moto G10 Power houses the Qualcomm Snapdragon 460 SoC, a mediocre processor in this price segment. This is not the best processor for gaming, but it works absolutely fine with low-intensity day-to-day tasks such as emails, social media, texting, calling, and more. While it performs these tasks decently well, the phone does feel sluggish from time to time. On the brighter side, it comes with an official IP52 rating for water and dust resistance, and even offers a vanilla stock Android 11 experience. The lack of bloatware is refreshing at this price range, the phone is devoid of any third party preinstalled apps and ads. The main reason to purchase this phone is the massive 6,000mAh battery that can easily last most users two days on one full charge. Moving on to the cameras, the phone has a 48MP main lens, an 8MP ultrawide lens, and two 2MP macro and depth lenses. You also get an 8MP selfie camera. With the primary lens, you can get decent shots in daylight, and you can also get pretty serviceable shots from the 8MP ultrawide lens for the cost.

The Realme C3 is a budget offering from Realme that doesn't feel like a budget smartphone at all. The Realme C3 is powered by the MediaTek Helio G70 SoC, known for its gaming prowess while a 6.5-inch HD+ display lets you stream content in good quality. It comes in 3GB and 4GB RAM variants and for the best experience we suggest you go for the 4GB RAM variant which comes with 64GB storage. There's also a dual camera setup at the back that delivers portrait shots, night mode and more. Topping it up is a triple card slot and a 5,000mAh battery with 10W charging. The phone is the successor to the Realme C2 and strengthens the company’s budget lineup. The battery life is excellent, the performance is competitive for the price point, and the camera performance is acceptable for the price point. Overall, the Realme C3 is an easy phone to recommend under Rs 10,000. The only downside is that the phone, like its predecessor, does not come with a fingerprint sensor.

The Infinix Hot 10 is a slightly underrated smartphone in the sub 10K price segment. It comes with a massive 6.78-inch HD+ resolution display, an octa-core MediaTek Helio G70 processor, and 4GB of RAM with 64GB of internal storage. The storage can be expanded up to 256GB via a microSD card. The device competes with the likes of the Redmi 9 Prime and the Realme Narzo 30A. Aside from all these pretty impressive specs at the relatively inexpensive price, the Infinix Hot 10 comes with a quad camera setup with a 16MP primary lens. There’s also an 8MP selfie shooter. The smartphone doesn’t slack off when it comes with battery capacity as well and comes equipped with a massive 5,200mAh cell. Additionally, it comes with a punch-hole cutout for the selfie camera instead of a tear-drop notch that is more commonly prevalent in the sub 10K price segment. This amps up immersiveness when consuming content on the phone. There’s also a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner and the device runs of XOS 7.0 which is based on Android 10.

At just Rs 500 more than 10000, you can get the 4GB RAM + 64GB storage variant of the Realme Narzo 20, which is a great smartphone in this price segment. The phone houses the MediaTek Helio G85 SoC that is also present on the cheaper Narzo 30a. However, for the extra price, you will get a 48MP primary lens instead of the 13MP primary shooter on the Narzo 30a. You also get an 8MP ultrawide lens which is not present on the Narzo 30a. The phone houses a massive 6,000mAh battery and comes with 18W fast charging. It runs Realme UI based on Android 10. As for the display, the Realme Narzo 20 has a 6.5-inch IPS LCD screen with HD+ resolution and a tall 20:9 aspect ratio. For protection, you have Corning Gorilla Glass 3 on the display. The phone weighs about 208 grams, so it isn’t the most lightweight phone in the category. It comes in two colour options - Victory Blue and Glory Silver. Overall, the Realme Narzo 20 is a solid contender in the sub-10K category. You can go for this phone over the Realme 30A if cameras matter to you more. Additionally, you also get more RAM and storage with the Realme Narzo 20.

With a MediaTek Helio G35 SoC under the hood paired alongside 4GB RAM and 64GB internal storage, the Xiaomi Redmi 9 holds good promise as far as the performance is concerned. We have found the Helio G80 to be capable of running the latest games and performing general tasks in our tests. It’s a solid budget smartphone for those users who are searching the market for a capable daily driver with good specs across the board without breaking the bank. You get a 6.53-inch display with HD+ resolution and a dew-drop notch for the selfie camera to sit squarely within. There’s also a dual-rear camera setup with a 13-megapixel primary shooter. You also get a decent 5MP selfie camera. As for battery life, the phone houses a 5,000mAh battery that can easily give users a day or more of usage. However, charging the phone is a slow affair since the phone comes with a 10W charger inside the box. Overall, the Redmi 9 is a good entry-level device for those who seek consistency when it comes to performance.

The Samsung Galaxy M02s is a decent contender in the sub-10K price segment that has mostly been taken over by Xiaomi, Realme and Poco. Priced at Rs 8,999, the phone comes with 3GB RAM and 32GB internal storage. If you choose to spend another 1K, you can bump this up to 4GB RAM and 64GB internal storage. Housing the Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 SoC, the phone is no performance beast but accomplishes basic tasks such as social media, calls, texts, and more. The phone runs Samsung’s One UI 2.5 based on Android 10, so there’s some bloatware and loads of customisations available. You have a massive 5,000mAh battery that is enough to get most users through over a day of heavy usage. However, it comes with a rather slow 7.5W charger in the box even though the phone supports 15W fast charging. You get a 6.5-inch HD+ TFT LCD display that has pretty noticeable bezels around it. There is no WideVine L1 certification for HD viewing on streaming platforms though, which is slightly disappointing. As for the cameras, you have a 13MP primary lens, a 2MP depth sensor, and a 2MP macro sensor, pretty standard for phones under 10000.

Last year Oppo launched the A15, which is an entry-level smartphone that puts major emphasis on its shooting prowess in the budget segment. The device looks sleek and is easy to grip, however, its glossy rear finish attracts a fair amount of fingerprints and smudges. The device sports a 6.52-inch display with HD+ resolution and a trusty dew-drop notch to house the selfie camera. The phone has a triple rear camera setup with a 13-megapixel primary shooter that works well in the daylight but doesn’t do so well in low light. The 8MP selfie camera provides good shots that are a tad oversharpened. The phone packs a MediaTek Helio P35 SoC paired with 3GB of RAM and 32GB internal storage. This can be expanded via microSD card to up to 256GB. It does well with multitasking for the most part but this isn’t a gaming phone. The rear-mounted fingerprint sensor is also pretty decent. Overall, this phone is a good option for those who want a no-nonsense budget smartphone to accomplish basic tasks and take decent daylight photos.
