Best Smartphones Under 10000 in Nepal

Sometimes, you may be in need of a smartphone very urgently and don’t have much cash in hand. Or you need something that will last you a month before your new promised Galaxy S9 arrives. Or, you just don’t feel like spending more than 10K on something that you only use to call and nothing else. Whatever your reasons, we have compiled a list of some of the best smartphones available on the market for under Rs. 10,000.

However, we warn you before you proceed further into this article; if you need a device that needs to have a good enough performance and are irritated by massive lags, the phones on this list aren’t made for you. You would have to shell out some more cash for a phone at a higher price range. But, if you are seriously short on your budget take a look at our list of best phones under 15000 that has phones which give you a far better value than the phones under 10K.

But that doesn’t mean that you will be getting just trash under Rs 10,000. There are some good ones among the bunch. We have listed some of the best ones we could find in the list of best smartphones under 10000 in Nepal below.

Best Smartphones Under 10000 in Nepal

#8. Huawei Y3 2017

Huawei Y3 2017 follows in the footsteps of its predecessor, the Huawei Y3 II, and offers a screen below HD resolution, a slightly higher clocked 1.2 GHz MediaTek processor, 1 GB RAM and 8 GB ROM. These are expected specs below the Rs 10,000 mark. And they are just enough for a phone to function properly. Do not expect smooth performance as switching between apps would make the phone stutter. This is a phone that can only handle the basics like calling and texting and you should buy it for those purposes only.

Pros Cons
Cheap Poor screen resolution

Just 1 GB RAM

#7. Nokia 1

Nokia is one of the most beloved phone companies in Nepal. People still measure the quality of a bar phone from another company to that of a Nokia phone. But what most people may not know is that Nokia makes smartphones too and they are getting good at it.

With the Nokia 1, you are getting a MediaTek Quad Core processor and a gigabyte of RAM for less than 10 grand. The processor might seem a little “meh” when you compare it to other smartphones but it gets the job done for a fair bit of workload. And, Nokia surprises us by shipping the Nokia 1 with the latest Android 8.0 Oreo which none of the phones on this list have. However, if you love the Nokia brand, we suggest you look at the Nokia 2 which costs Rs. 1000 more than the Nokia 1 and has major improvements.

Nokia 1 Key Specifications

  • Display: 4.5-inch IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen
  • Resolution: 480×854 pixels
  • Chipset: MediaTek MT6737M
  • CPU: Quad-core 1.1 GHz Cortex- A53
  • GPU: Mali T720
  • OS: Android 8.0 (Oreo Go)
  • Memory: 8GB, 1GB
  • Primary Camera: 5 MP with LED Flash
  • Secondary Camera: 2 MP
  • Battery: Non-removable Li-Ion 2150 mAh battery

Nokia 1 Price in Nepal: Rs. 9325

Pros Cons
Android version is latest one Screen resolution is on the low side
The design looks sturdy

#6. Moto C

Another old phone manufacturer makes the list and this time it is Motorola. Motorola didn’t taste success like Nokia in the phone business even though they were the first company to build a mobile phone. But they aren’t too popular in the smartphone market too. But Motorola makes some of the best budget smartphones in the world and naturally one of its phones made our list.

Motorola Moto C is a typical phone under 10K list. It has the processor and RAM that matches the price. But the internal storage is expansive than other phones and the cameras are quite good. Don’t expect a buttery smooth performance. You can assure yourself that this phone won’t give up on you when you are just using one app and aren’t multitasking.

Motorola Moto C Key Specifications

  • Display: 5.0 inches, 68.9 cm2 (~64.3% screen-to-body ratio)
  • Chipset: Mediatek MT6737M
  • CPU: Quad-core 1.1 GHz Cortex-A53
  • GPU: Mali-T720MP2
  • OS: Android 7 (Nougat)
  • Memory: 16 GB ROM expandable, 1 GB RAM – LTE model
  • Primary Camera: 5 MP, LED flash
  • Secondary Camera: 2 MP, LED flash
  • Battery: Removable Li-Po 2350 mAh battery

Motorola Moto C Price in Nepal: Rs. 10990

Pros Cons
You get LTE support for a very low price The processor is mediocre
You get a fairly new Android Nougat

#5. Colors S1

This is one of the cheapest smartphones with a metal body and fingerprint sensor available on the market (along with the CG OMEGA 6). This device exemplifies that even low-end devices can be made up premium materials like metal instead of the usual plastic. The custom features of ColorOS like multi-gestures, Mira-vision for display setting and Colors lite for mobile data control are the welcome addition.

But this phone is not a great performer. Just 1 GB of RAM is not enough to run Android Nougat smoothly. We recommend at least 2GB of RAM. None of the phones on this list are the best performers. However, if you can’t spend even a paisa above 10,000 this phone is the right way to go. The performance and cameras are good enough for the price.

Colors S1 Key Specifications

  • Display: 5 inch HD IPS display with 1280 X 720 resolution
  • Chipset: MediaTek MT6737 Soc
  • CPU: 1.3 GHz quad-core processor
  • GPU: Mali-T720 MP1
  • Memory: 8GB internal storage with MicroSD expansion, 1 GB RAM
  • OS: Android 7.0 Nougat OS
  • Primary Camera: 8 MP rear camera with LED flash
  • Secondary Camera: 5 MP front camera with flash
  • Battery: 2400 mAh battery
  • Sensors: Fingerprint (rear-mounted), gyro, proximity

Colors S1 Price in Nepal: Rs. 9995

Pros Cons
Fingerprint scanner Only 1GB RAM
Android 7.0 out of the box

#4. CG OMEGA 6

For the price of Rs. 9977, CG OMEGA 6 offers a great set of specs. Have you seen dual cameras of such high megapixel count in any smartphone of this price anywhere? How many phones have you seen with a metal build and fingerprint sensor at this price? Not many. And that is the main reason we like the CG OMEGA 6.

It offers similar specs like the competition but adds many “something-more”s like dual cameras and the fingerprint sensor to make the phone more usable and enjoyable. So, the CG OMEGA 6 is a great option for budget buyers. But we do have one gripe. We would have loved to see a trade-off of a single camera and more RAM rather than dual cameras and just 1GB of RAM.

CG OMEGA 6 Key Specifications

  • Display: 5.5-inch HD IPS LCD
  • Chipset: MediaTek MT6580
  • CPU: 1.3 GHz Quad Core (ARM Cortex – A7)
  • GPU: ARM Mali-400 MP
  • OS: Android 7.0 (Nougat)
  • Internal Storage: 16 GB
  • RAM: 1 GB
  • Primary Camera: 13+2 MP
  • Secondary Camera: 5 MP
  • Battery: Removable Li-Ion 2600 mAh battery
  • Great to have: Finger-print Sensor
  • SIM support: GSM: 850/900/1800/1900, WCDMA: 900/2100

CG OMEGA 6 Price in Nepal: Rs. 9977

Pros Cons
Fingerprint scanner Only 1GB RAM
Android 7.0 out of the box

#3. Colors P70 Selfie U

Colors Pride P70 was released in September 2017. The P70 Selfie comes with a 5-inch HD IPS display with a 2.5D curved glass design, typical of the price. This phone is rocking a mediocre processor, the MediaTek quad-core chipset with a clock speed of 1.3 GHz. But the 2GB of RAM is unexpected under 10K. You can expect a good enough performance under light loads like Facebook and YouTube apps. The phone comes with an internal storage of 16GB with an option for expandable storage up to 32GB.The P70 Selfie has an 8MP selfie camera with flash which will help you take selfies even in low lighting conditions and has features like Face Beauty and is capable of taking HDR photos. The rear-facing camera is also an 8MP camera with an LED flash. This phone runs on the stock version of Android 7.0 Nougat and is backed by a 2250 mAh battery which is a bit on the low side. We have doubts that this phone will last you a full day of use.

Colors Pride P70 Selfie U Key Specifications

  • Display: 5.0 inches HD IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen
  • Resolution: 1280*720 pixel (294 PPI Pixel Density)
  • Chipset: MediaTek MT6737 Soc
  • CPU: Quad-core 1.3 GHz
  • GPU: Mali-T720 MP1
  • Memory: 16 GB internal storage with microSD expandable storage(up to 32GB), 2GB RAM

  • Primary Camera: 8 MP, f/2.2, LED flash
  • Secondary Camera: 8 MP, LED flash
  • Battery: Li-ion 2250 mAh battery
  • Sensors: G-sensor, Proximity, Ambient Light Sensor

Colors Pride P70 Selfie U Price in Nepal: Rs. 9995

Pros Cons
Good value Battery life may not be so great
HD screen

#2. UMIDIGI London

Don’t hesitate to buy an UMIDIGI phone because you have never heard of the brand before. It entered the Nepali market in 2017. It is a Chinese manufacturer like Xiaomi and Huawei, and like Xiaomi and Huawei, UMIDIGI makes great phones at an affordable price. UMIDIGI London is one of those phones.

The most surprising element of the London is its 3GB of RAM. Even phones up to 15K fail to include a 3GB RAM. We would be joyous to see just 2GB at this price range. So UMIDIGI did a great job at the RAM department. Other specs, however, are expected at the price. The processor is mediocre and we don’t know how the cameras will be until we see it ourselves. The camera specs look good on paper though.  What doesn’t look great on paper is the battery capacity. Just 2050 mAh will not be enough for you to make it through the day.

UMIDIGI London Key Specifications

  • Display: 5-inch IPS Capacitive Touchscreen
  • Resolution: 1280×720 pixels
  • Chipset: MediaTek MT6753
  • CPU: MT6753 Octa-Core 1.5GHz
  • GPU: Mali-720 MP
  • OS: Android 6.0 (Marshmallow)
  • Memory: 3GB RAM, 16GB ROM
  • Primary Camera: 8 Megapixel
  • Secondary Camera: 2 MP
  • Battery: Removable Li-Ion 2050 mAh Battery

UMIDIGI London Price in Nepal: Rs. 9800

Pros Cons
Large RAM Battery life is not great
HD screen No fingerprint sensor

#1. Xiaomi Redmi 4A

Finally, a Xiaomi Phone. Xiaomi is the de facto leader when it comes to manufacturing stylish budget smartphones that perform great. It really helps the customers to cap the net profit from selling hardware to just 5%.

Xiaomi Redmi 4A looks and feels amazing in the hand (for the price). But take note that the build material used is plastic. It also performs admirably, thanks to the Snapdragon 425 processor inside. The specs on this phone are average but it comes on top of all other because it doesn’t fall short on any one aspect. It has a great camera setup – 13MP primary lens and 5MP secondary lens. It has relatively large battery capacity at 3120mAH. Also, it’s screen looks great. The only thing that might deter you from buying this phone is its lack of fingerprint scanner.

  • CPU: Quad-core 1.4 GHz Cortex-A53
