Here’s a list of what we think are the best phones around Rs 15,000 based on their specs. We’ve excluded single cores from this month’s list because of their sluggish performance. Also, these prices are the lowest we could find online and the list goes from the most expensive to the cheapest.

Although, one phone outshines them all. It’s the Moto G, and out advise would be that you get it without giving a second thought. For a list of best phones around Rs 20,000, click here. We’ve hyperlinked the names with links to Amazon and Flipkart pages, depending on where they were available for a cheaper price.
