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 S10 arrives.

Best Smartphones Under 10000 in Nepal


#8. Colors Pride 5E

The Pride 5E looks good for a phone under 9K, special thanks to the 18:9 screen. The metal-like material (we don’t know if it’s metal or not) around the rim gives it a distinct look that many people would appreciate. At the front, we have smaller-than-expected bezels at the top and the bottom which enclose a 5-inch WVGA display. We wish it were an IPS LCD display, but for 9K, I don’t think we can complain.colors pride 5e price in nepalThe best part about the Pride 5E is its 4G support. Other features to know about the phone are Dual Sim capabilities, 4G support, and 2300mAh battery. As the screen is a WVGA display, the battery life may be okay for a phone this size. There is also a 3000MB Ncell data free on buying this device.

Colors Pride 5E Price in Nepal: Rs. 8,995 

Pros Cons
Android 8.1 Oreo FWVGA display (should have been IPS LCD)
Relatively large storage Poor cameras
Android One Program

#7. Nokia 2

Nokia was 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 2 (2017), you are getting a Snapdragon 212 processor and a gigabyte of RAM for just above 10 grand. The processor might seem a little “meh” when you compare it to other smartphones but it gets the job done for calling and texting but nothing much. Nokia surprises us by shipping the Nokia 2 with Android 8.1 Oreo which is rare for the phones of this list. However, if you love the Nokia brand but want something cheaper, we suggest you look at the Nokia 1 which costs about Rs. 1500 less than the Nokia 2.

Nokia 2 Key Specifications

  • Display: 5.0 inches IPS LCD 720 x 1280 pixels, 16:9 ratio (~294 ppi density)
  • Chipset: Qualcomm MSM8909v2 Snapdragon 212
  • CPU: Quad-core 1.3 GHz Cortex-A7
  • GPU: Adreno 304
  • Memory: 8 GB internal storage with microSD expandable storage (up to 128GB), 1GB RAM
  • OS: Android 7.1.1 (Nougat), upgradable to Android 8.1 (Oreo)
  • Primary Camera: 8 MP, autofocus, LED flash
  • Secondary Camera: 5 MP
  • Battery: Non-removable Li-Ion 4100 mAh battery
  • Sensors: Accelerometer, proximity, compass

Nokia 2 Price in Nepal: Rs.10,999

Pros Cons
Android 8.1 Oreo Very weak processor
The design looks sturdy
Large battery
Android One Program

#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

#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. Xiaomi Redmi Go

Xiaomi Go is Xiaomi’s first Android Go phone. Android Go is a toned down version of Android 8.1 Oreo tailor-made for low-powered phones like Redmi Go. Native Google apps like Maps and YouTube have a Go version that occupies significantly less space and use fewer resources to give you a better experience with your phone.

Redmi Go comes packing a Snapdragon 425 processor. This is a perfectly capable processor for normal tasks like calling and texting and can handle apps like Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube quite well. This processor is accompanied by 1GB RAM and 8GB internal storage. That’s not much but for the price, these specs are impressive and won’t be as much of a pain as other under 10K phones. What’s even more amazing in this price range is the support for 4G. That is something praiseworthy.

Xiaomi Redmi Go Key Specifications

  • Display: 5.0 inches HD IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen
  • Chipset: Qualcomm MSM8917 Snapdragon 425
  • CPU: Quad-core 1.4 GHz Cortex-A53
  • GPU: Adreno 308
  • OS: Android Go based on Android 8.1 (Oreo)
  • Memory: 8GB internal storage with microSD expandable (up to 128GB), 1GB RAM
  • Primary Camera: 8 MP, f/2.0, autofocus, LED flash
  • Secondary Camera: 5 MP, f/2.2
  • Battery: Non-removable Li-Ion 3000 mAh battery
  • Sensors: Accelerometer, proximity

Xiaomi Redmi Go Price in Nepal: Rs. 8,999

Pros Cons
Good Specs design is slightly dated
Android Oreo
4G support
HD screen

#2. Gionee F205

If the previous two phones felt too old school to you, then the Gionee F205 may be the phone you want to get. It has the new updated 18:9 aspect ratio screen and it was released in 2018. Specs-wise, it comes packing 2GB RAM and 16GB internal storage. Those are amazing specs for a phone that comes under 10K.Gionee F205 supports 4G and it has a battery of 2670mAh. Overall, we don’t find anything to complain about Gionee F205 on paper. Well, there’s one thing: The phone doesn’t look as sleek in real life as it looks in Gionee’s renders. So go check this phone out yourselves in physical stores before buying it.

Gionee F205 Key Specifications

  • Display: 5.45 inches IPS LCD
  • Resolution: 720 x 1440 pixels, 18:9 ratio (~295 ppi density)
  • Chipset: Mediatek MT6739 (28 nm)
  • CPU: Quad-core 1.3 GHz Cortex-A53

Gionee F205 Price in Nepal: Rs. 9899

Pros Cons
Powerful Specs Android Nougat
Good cameras

#1. Samsung Galaxy J2 Core

The Galaxy J2 Core is special because it is the first Android Go smartphone from Samsung. Android Go is a stripped down version of Google’s Android software made for low-powered devices. It takes significantly smaller space than normal Android OS on a smartphone. Also, the phone runs smoother due to some memory optimizations. In short, Android Go helps make the most of the limited storage, memory, and battery capacity in budget-oriented smartphones.

Inside, the J2 Core offers the most basic features you could hope from a smartphone. It has a quad-core Exynos processor paired with 1GB RAM and 8GB internal storage. So, there won’t be a whole lot you can do on this phone besides calling and texting and scrolling through Facebook occasionally. However, Samsung’s J2 phones have been known to excel in that department.

Samsung Galaxy J2 Core Key Specifications

  • Display: 5.0 inches
  • Resolution: 540 x 960 pixels, 16:9 ratio (~220 ppi density)
  • Chipset: Exynos 7570 Quad
  • CPU: Quad-core 1.4 GHz Cortex-A53
  • GPU: Mali-T720
  • Memory: 8 GB, 1 GB RAM(expandable up to 256GB using microSD card)

  • Primary Camera: 8 MP, AF, f/2.2
  • Secondary Camera: 5 MP, f/2.2
  • Battery: Removable Li-ion 2600 mAh battery
  • Sensors: Accelerometer, proximity

Samsung Galaxy J2 Core Price in Nepal: Rs. 10490

Pros Cons
Android Go Not so powerful
Should have been HD screen

Honorary Mention: Xiaomi Redmi 4A

Finally, a Xiaomi Phone. Xiaomi is the de facto leader when it comes to manufacturing stylish budget smartphones that perform great. But we couldn’t find one that comes under 10K from Xiaomi, or under even 11K. However, we did find this phone called Xiaomi Redmi 4A that costs Rs.

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 old Marshmallow OS and the fact that this phone was launched in 2016! If you spend just a bit more, you can buy far better and recent phones manufactured by Xiaomi.

Xiaomi Redmi 4A Key Specifications

  • Display: 5.0 inches HD IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen
  • Chipset: Qualcomm MSM8917 Snapdragon 425
  • CPU: Quad-core 1.4 GHz Cortex-A53
