Best Phones Under 15000

Just a few months ago, LeEco ( formerly LeTV) entered the Indian market and it just ruled out every other budget device! The Le1s and Le1s Eco got an impressive feedback from the users. Unfortunately, Redmi Note 3 was launched and hence it pretty much ruined the ongoing success of Le1s. But, the company came back with Le2, the best smartphone under 15,000 right now! The Le2 comes with a 5.5-inch 1080p IPS display which is really sharp and viewing angles are amazing. The phone features an octa-core Snapdragon 652 chipset along with Adreno 510 GPU.

The gaming experience is really smooth on the Le2 and there are no major heating issues. The phone comes with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage, which is unfortunately not expandable. This is probably the only con of this device . Anyways, the Le2 backs a good 3,000 mAh battery along with Fast Charging. This should be your very first choice as it is one of the Best Phones under 15,000.

Xiaomi can be called the ‘king of budget smartphones‘. And the company proved the same by launching the Redmi Note 3. Before the Le2 was launched, Redmi Note 3 was the best device under 15,000. But, it doesn’t mean that it isn’t worth buying after the launch if Le2. A lot of users still prefer Xiaomi over LeEco no matter how much the good phone is launched by LeEco .The reason could be that Xiaomi is in Indian markets for a longer time as compared to LeEco. The Redmi Note 3 has everything you need in a budget device. It has a 5.5-inch 1080p IPS panel, Snapdragon 650 Octa-core chipset, Adreno 510 GPU and 3GB of RAM. There is a 2GB RAM variant also but the 3GB RAM variant is the choice of all! ( Maybe that’s why it’s stock gets over every time!)
