Best Smartphones Under 10000 in Nepal


#7. 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

#6. 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)
  • OS: Android 8.1 Oreo (Go edition)
  • Primary Camera: 8 MP, AF, f/2.2

Samsung Galaxy J2 Core Price in Nepal: Rs. 10490

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

#5. Infinix Smart 4

The Infinix Smart 4 is distinguishably unique from all the other budget phones in its category. The polycarbonate chassis designed in a way that mostly portraits mid-rangers gives it that unique glow. The vertical camera module coupled dual LED-flash and the dewdrop notch system implemented; even though copied is still quirky in this budget segment.

The display in particular, is the distinctive attribute that I was talking about earlier. The phone features a 6.6” IPS LCD that stretches all the way up to 720p. What’s surprising is that this phone retains an 82.9% screen-to-body ratio that gives it an edge when put against competitors.

Infinix Smart 4 dual camera ai

Underneath the polycarbonate exterior, the phone packs in the typical quad-core MediaTek Helio A22 processor. For support, there’s a 2GB RAM alongside 32GB internal. On the surficial side of things, the phone hosts an Android 9 Pie (Go Edition) software. Since the processor isn’t all that powerful, the software should pretty much handle the device well.

The camera department seems a little empty though. You get a total of 2 camera modules altogether. Over to the rear, is a single 8MP camera module that comes equipped with a dual-LED flash combination. Rotating over to the front, you get a 5MP front camera for selfies. However, it’s still an entry level phone so its fine.

And lastly, there’s a 4000mAh battery capacity embedded under that powers the entire device. For a phone that uses Android Go, this battery should easily last more than a day. So, cheers to the battery!

Infinix Smart 4 Specifications

  • Display: 6.6 inches, IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen (~82.9% screen-to-body ratio)
  • Resolution: 720 x 1600 pixels, 20:9 ratio (~266 ppi density)
  • Chipset: Mediatek MT6761 Helio A22 (12 nm)
  • CPU: Quad-core 2.0 GHz Cortex-A53
  • GPU: PowerVR GE8320
  • Memory: 16GB 1GB RAM; 32GB 2GB RAM

  • Secondary Camera: 5 MP front camera
  • Battery: Non-removable Li-Po 4000 mAh battery
  • Sensors: Fingerprint (rear-mounted), gyro, proximity

Infinix Smart 4 Price in Nepal: Rs 10,999 (Exclusive Price)

Pros Cons
Android Go Not Powerful Enough
Great Battery Less Flexible in terms of storage
HD Screen Okay-ish Camera

#4. Nokia 2.1

Nokia 2.1 is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 processor which is an entry-level chipset from Qualcomm for budget smartphones. The processor is paired with 1GB RAM. So, don’t buy this phone if you want to play games or want to multitask. This phone lets you call, text, surf the web a little and that’s it. Also, as the internal storage space is just 8GB you won’t be able to install many apps either unless you spend some cash for a micro-SD card.

On the back, we have an 8MP camera that will click decent photos in good lighting conditions. The same is the case with the front 5MP camera. But, you surely aren’t buying a phone at this price for their cameras. Nokia 2.1 runs Android Go which is a variant of Android 8.1 Oreo optimized to run on devices with limited resources like the Nokia 2.1.

Nokia 2.1 Key Specifications

  • Display: 5.5 inches, IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen
  • Resolution: 720 x 1280 pixels, 16:9 ratio (~267 ppi density)
  • Chipset: Qualcomm MSM8917 Snapdragon 425 (28 nm)
  • CPU: Quad-core 1.4 GHz Cortex-A53
  • GPU: Adreno 308
  • Memory: 1GB RAM, 8GB internal storage (expandable via micro SD card up to 128GB)
  • OS: Android 8.1 Oreo, Go edition
  • Primary Camera: 8MP AF
  • Secondary Camera: 5MP
  • Battery: Non-removable Li-Ion 4000 mAh battery
  • Sensors: Accelerometer, proximity

Nokia 2.1 Price in Nepal: Rs. 8450

Pros Cons
Decent Processor

#3. Lava Benco V7

In terms of overall body design, the Benco V7 is as fancy as you can get out of an entry-level smartphone. The vertical camera setup combined with the flash module gives it this killer look. And that combined with the geometric patterns makes it a treat for the eye. Over to the front, we have a drop-down notch and huge chin bezels that just can’t be removed for this price.

The device sports a 6.1” IPS LCD panel at HD resolution for display, which seems quite okay to me. Underneath the phone encloses a Quad-Core Unisoc SC9832 chipset alongside 2/16GB internals. And it’s also running on top of Android 9 so I have my doubts in the processing department.

As for the rear camera, we just have an 8MP camera sensor. The good news is that it does have beauty mode so photos should not be that bad. The frontal side has a 5MP sensor, which surprisingly has a bokeh mode. With the front camera, the phone also supports fast unlock; moreover, the company claims that unlock time for the phone is just 0.4s.

Finally, powering the entire device we have a huge 4000mAh battery. With minimal usage, you may be able to get a day and half worth of power from the device. But, watch out though the outdated processor and Android 9 may not give the same amount of power after a while.

Lava Benco V7 Key Specifications

  • Display: 6.1″ IPS LCD display with HD resolution (1280 x 600 pixels)
  • Rear Camera: 8MP with rear flash
  • Front Camera: 5MP
  • Processor: Quad-core, Unisoc SC9832r with 4 x ARM Cortex-A53
  • GPU: Mali T820
  • RAM: 2GB
  • Storage: 16GB onboard, expandable up to 128GB
  • Battery: 4000 mAh
  • Sensors: G-sensor, Light, proximity

Lava Benco Price in Nepal: Rs 9,999

Pros Cons
Decent Screen Average Processor
Good Battery Life
Good Pricing

#2. Honor 7s

Honor 7s is a normal budget smartphone for 2019. It comes with the 18:9 aspect ratio display, a metallic body, and standard budget level specs. There’s 2GB RAM and 16GB internal storage inside. The internal storage is, thankfully, expandable; the 16GB internal storage will fill up in no time.

I am a little concerned with the MT6739 processor that is used in this phone. This processor was launched in 2017 and it uses a 28nm architecture. That’s a bit dated. However, it may not be that big of a deal for a budget smartphone. Any smartphone is good at calling, texting, and browsing the internet lightly nowadays. If that’s what you’re after, Honor 7s will probably serve you right.

Honor 7s Key Specifications

  • Display: 45 IPS LCD 720 x 1440 pixels, 18:9 ratio (~295 ppi density)
  • SoC: MediaTek MT6739 (28 nm)
  • CPU: Quad-core 1.5 GHz Cortex-A53
  • GPU:PowerVR GE8100
  • Memory: 16 GB, 2 GB RAM (storage expandable up to 256 GB using micro SD card)
  • OS: Android Oreo 8.1 with EMUI 8.0
  • Rear Camera: 13 MP, PDAF
  • Front Camera: 5MP with LED flash
  • Battery: Non-removable Li-Ion 3020 mAh battery
  • Sensors: Accelerometer, proximity

#1. Xiaomi Redmi 7A

The 5.45” IPS LCD, size and display wise is among the best ones in the budget category. The phone does have bezels on the top and the chin part which frankly makes the phone seem a little outdated. But for this price point, I guess that’s not much a choice.

The phone comes with a Snapdragon 439 Octa-core 2.0 GHz processor which is not exactly the best in the 4-series but is a power-efficient device. Along with that, the phone comes in 2GB RAM and 16GB variant. Honestly speaking I was kind of expecting them to include the 3GB/32GB variant because with MIUI on top of Android 9, the 2 GB variant may not be able to last for a very long time. But it has a dedicated memory slot to expand memory to 256GB.

Even more exciting part of this phone is the 2 years warranty that comes with it. The second better features I guess for this device is the Sony IMX486 12MP rear camera. I wasn’t expecting Xiaomi to include this sensor in a device under 12K as this is one of the better sensors found in previous mid-range devices like Redmi Note 6 Pro.

Moving on to the third better feature, the battery. This phone comes with a 4000mAh battery life. It’s a really huge battery for a phone that has power-efficient processor and MIUI 10 which is better battery wise.

Redmi 7A Key Specifications

  • Display: 5.45 Inch HD IPS Display with aspect ratio of 18:9.
  • Processor: 2.0GHz Snapdragon 439 Octa-core processor,
  • Rear camera: 12 MP Sony IMX486
  • Front Camera: 5 MP with AI portrait mode
  • Memory: 2 GB 16 GB, expandable up to 256GB
  • OS: MIUI 10 on top of Android 9
  • Battery: 4000 mAh

Redmi 7A Price in Nepal: Rs. 10,999 (2/16GB)
