4. Moto G 3rd Generation(₹12999)

Moto g (3rd generation)- Best smartphone under 15k

The Moto G’s specs may not be as high as the Zenfone or the Mi4 but I prefer it over them because the Moto G has much better build quality and user experience that the others. It has a brilliantly designed body, runs on stock android, which, I believe, is the best way to experience android, and is waterproof. Who wouldn’t love it?

7. Microsoft Lumia 640XL (₹13885)

windows microsoft phones best smartphones under 15,000

The Lumia 640XL is one of the best budget smartphones in the market. My two favourite features about it have to be the camera and the Windows Phone OS. The 640XL rocks a 13 megapixel primary camera which takes some stunning pictures. The Windows Phone OS keeps things very simple and is very fast. If you’re love simplicity as well as great cameras, this is the phone for you.
