Features to expect in the best phones under Rs 15,000:

You can expect the best phones under Rs 15,000 to come with 1080p displays and support 1080p video recording. Snapdragon 801 is among the best processors in this budget, followed by the Snapdragon 652/650. The SD 615 is the bare minimum. We don’t recommend Snapdragon 410 in this budget (that leaves the Samsung Galaxy J5 and the Moto G3). You will also find models that come with 3GB RAM, which future proofs the device a bit. Again, go only for 4G phones. You will also find a few models with 32GB internal storage, which is a plus. In terms of software, get something with atleast Android 5.0 that is expected to be updated to Android 6.0. Lastly, don’t blindly run after the megapixel count on the camera sensor. It doesn’t matter that much.

Happy shopping.
