The adoption rate of 4G phones has been continuously increasing and the competition in this price segment is getting more intense. Brands are focusing on providing high end features on devices that don’t necessarily have the best specifications. 

Not everyone wants a flagship smartphone when all they want to use the device for, is making calls and basic functionality. Which is why this list features the best phones at the cheapest prices, so that you don’t have to spend any more than you absolutely have to .

Samsung Galaxy M10

Display: 6.22-inch HD+ (1520 x 720 pixels) notched panel | OS: Android 8.1 Oreo | Processor: Exynos 7870 SoC | RAM: 2GB/3GB | Storage: 16GB/32GB | Rear camera: 15MP+5MP | Front camera: 5MP | Battery: 3400mAh

Vivid display

Impressive daylight camera

Face Unlock technology

Long-lasting battery

Unimpressive low light camera

Still runs Android Oreo

Xiaomi Redmi 6A

On the face of it, The Galaxy M10 looks like a sub-15k rather than a sub-10K one- the combination of the waterdrop notch and thin bezels isn’t very common among sub-10K phones. The Redmi 6A, for example, lacks a notch, and has thicker bezels than the M10, which looks closer to its immediate senior, the Galaxy M20. 

The M10 packs a 3400mAh battery; its closest competitor, the Redmi 6A, has a 3000mAh battery that lasts about 20 hours of average usage. Rear camera shots are impressive in daylight, as are selfies.  Where the camera lets you down, though, are low-light shots. There’s just too much noise, and the effect is heightened with the flash.

The M10 has plenty to offer those looking for a great-looking, well-performing phone on a budget.
