7. Nokia 3:

India’s favourite phone brand – Nokia is finally back in the form which everyone desperately wanted to see, they are back with new Android smartphones. Nokia has licensed its brand name to HMD Global, which is making smartphones in tight partnership with the company. Good thing is, the company has made it clear to put more focus on overall user experience in terms of build quality, battery life, after sales support, software updates, etc. rather than building up on just specs sheet. Talking about the Nokia 3, it is Nokia’s cheapest Android smartphone… Expand Review
Overall, the Nokia 3 is a good looking, well-built phone with latest software, great brand value and trust of Nokia. It packs competitive specs but also falls short on some important features. It is certainly not the best phone under 10000 Rs. in India but it still manages to offer a pretty good user experience and can be a good buying choice.

  •  Latest software with regular updates
  •  Stock Android user interface

8. Micromax Yu Yureka Black:

After a big break, Micromax’s subsidiary YU Televentures has launched a new phone with good specs at a very competitive price which reminds us of the company’s initial years where it has seen success with its Yureka, Yureka Plus and Yuphoria phones. While its newer phones over the past couple of months were unable to make their mark, the company has lot of hopes with this new phone so, they have named it after its most popular ‘Yureka’ phone, to get additional attention and popularity… Expand Review
Overall, the Yu Yureka Black is a good looking all round phone and when you particularly look at its price, it is impressive. But when you compare it with its main competitors Redmi 4 and Lenovo K6 Power, it doesn’t outpass them and when you are competing with such popular and reliable phones, it becomes necessary to be much better than them to become a good buying choice, that’s not the case here. Still, it is a good 5 inches phone and you can go with it if you like it.
