10 Best Phones under Rs. 10,000 – March 2015

Published

on

Nearly 2 years ago, we used to pay 20k for a phone with merely 512MB RAM. Today the scenario has changed. The phones have became much cheaper and still has great performance. Companies now focus on price to performance ratio. Some companies like Xiaomi, Motorola, Infocus, Micromax Yu (though it has a lot of issues) and Infocus has made really great phones at a lot cheaper price. A lot of you would be thinking that Xiaomi was the game changer in Indian market but it isn’t true. Google owned Motorola first released the best budget phone at that time in whole world including USA and Europe. Motorola launched two devices which were Moto G and Moto X. Moto G was a hit and crossed 25 million+ sales. Moto x was also a great phone and in its price range it was also a hit. Then after that came Xiaomi to India with Mi3 which you would be knowing how it ended up. It was one of the greatest hit in Indian market. So that was the beggining of the Budget smartphones with amazing performance. So talking about the good performes, we now start-up the list of 10 Best Phones under Rs. 10,000. 

10. Yu Yureka

Yu Yureka or rather say Micromax Yu Yureka was released in January 2015. It was live telecast and 23,000 people saw it. The phone was a hit as it had CynogenMod 11 which is a custom ROM and was having great specs. A lot of people bought it and I also did but it somehow didn’t go that well. It had some major software as well as hardware issues. It has a snapdragon 615 in it coupled with 2GB RAM. It has a 720p 5.5″ display. Yu Yureka is priced at Rs 8,999 at Amazon and has flash sales.

Yureka has CynogenMod which has both Pros and Cons. For me if a person is able to do some tasks like opening a normal app, calling then he would be happy but Yureka’s OS has a lot of customization but due to its bugs, it is not usable sometimes. It is also facing a lot of heating issues.

9. Asus Zenphone 5

Asus Zenphone 5 is an evergreen phone. It was released more 7 months ago and is still good to buy. It has got the 1.6 GHz Intel dual core processor with 2 GB RAM which delivers exceptional performance and good multi-tasking. The 5 inches HD screen and the display is very good, it has also got the Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection. One more thing I loved about the phone is, it has increased display sensitivity so you can use the phone even while wearing gloves, this is great for winter season. The phone’s design is sleek and beautiful. It has got good camera and it runs on the Android Kitkat. This phone comes with two storage option 8 GB and 16 GB while both come with the expandable storage. Okay, now one thing I felt could have been better is the phone’s UI, it runs on Asus’s own ZenUI which is good but it can be made even more good-looking. Overall this phone has got most of the things right and gives a balanced user experience at this price. It costs Rs. 8,999.

5. Lenovo A6000

The A6000 is a quintessential budget smartphone, priced at exactly what the Moto E had been launched at, Rs. 6,999. Lenovo added the flash sale elements in order to create hype and give its supply chains some relief. So, yes, this phone will not come to the market in big numbers in the foreseeable future, irrespective of what we may think about it. Lenovo A6000 has 1 Gb of RAM and a Snapdragon 64 bit 410 Soc. It has a & 720p HD 5″ screen which any circumstances perform great. Lenovo A6000 has a great built and an average battery life. The 8 megapixel camera is also not at all bad. This is one of the good phones in this range if you want to get a decent phone and save some money to buy grocery for next 3 weeks.

 4. Motorola Moto G (GEN 2)

You may think that Moto G is above Rs. 10,000 and yes it is, So why is it on this list? This is because Moto G deserves it, it was the best phone last year before or after Mi3 launched. It has a great build quality, great speakers and a average camera. The Moto G 2nd Generation phone comes with a powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor with 1.2GHz quad-core CPU, It is running Android Kitkat out of the box, and you will immediately get Lollipop update so it runs Lollipop!. Apart from the internal storage space, the Moto G comes with a MicroSD slot that allows you to expand your storage even further. This phone comes with a proximity sensor which turns off the display when you are on a call. The accelerometer controls the orientation of the phone and helps with motion gaming. The ambient light sensor adjusts the screen’s brightness for optimal viewing in different conditions. It also has a magnetometer for navigation apps. Moto G is also Water Resistant.

3. Motorola Moto E (2015)

Motorola’s revision to last year’s budget phone, the Moto E, is out and while it’s still called the E, it does have some second gen features to boast. The newer Moto E comes with a beefier set of specifications and not a whole lot of change in pricing. A new front camera, a larger 2390 mAh battery and an all new rear shell that truly is unique to the new Moto E. The Moto E is priced at Rs. 6999 and comes with Android 5.0 out of the box, yes just like its predecessors it’s stock android, with a bunch of Motorola apps on there. It has a Snapdragon 200 processor which is a major drawback and 1GB of RAM. It has a average 5 MP rear camera and a VGA front camera (really moto?). It is on 3rd number because of its stock experience. I am personally a Moto X user and I know the fluidness and smoothness in th OS. It has a low 960 x 540 resolution, which ends up making text, photos and just about everything else a tad less sharp than on other smartphones mentioned above.

2. Redmi Note 4G

It has Snapdragon 400 quadcore processor coupled with 2GB of RAM. It has one of the best camera under 17k, a 13MP Sony shooter with flash. On the front, it has a 5MP shooter. The phone can record upto 1080p from both of its camera (I see u moto e! :p ). It also has MIUI 6 which is a cherry on top. I am a user of stock android as I stated above, but when you use MIUI 6, you will definitely fell in love with it. It is smooth and out performs any other Custom ROM. The bezels of the phone are though really huge and it sometimes make trouble, but MIUI 6 solves it with one hand use, so a big thumbs up to Xiaomi.

Finally we are on the last one, and till now you would have thought of it, Yes you heard it write it is-

1.Redmi 2

It has the best camera you can get under 10k. It has 8GB internal memory and is expandable upto 32GB. After defeating all the phones, Redmi 2 became the best phone you can buy under Rs, 10,000 till date.

Fix Bluetooth getting disconnected on OnePlus 6 6t

Published

on

Yesterday I was checking comments on of our article on OnePlus 6t and ALmost every other comment was mentioning about the issue they were facing on their OnePlus 6t US version. So I researched a bit more about the same topic and what I found was that there does really exist some issues with the bluetooth on these new OnePlus phones. I was trying to find the solution for this bluetooth issue with OnePlus phones since then and I think finally I have the solution. So today we will see how you can fix the issue of Bluetooth getting disconnected on OnePlus 6 and OnePlus 6t. There can be different methods but I will be showing you the most robust yet the most simplest one.

How to – Fix Bluetooth getting disconnected on OnePlus 6/ 6t

Method 1

OnePlus even though is growing at an exponential rate is still not even near to the software teams of Apple or Samsung. The Oxygen OS is one of the lightest ROM you can find on a phone and it works well most of the time, but sometimes it is not perfect as it should be. The OS itself has some bugs related to Bluetooth that can only be fixed by a system update that has to be done by OnePlus. The same is also discussed on its own forum here. So, does this means that we have to live like it is? well, not at all! There are a few workarounds which we will tell you here.

Most of the problems in Oxygen OS can be fixed with a simple restart and the same goes with this issue as well. A simple restart will most probably fix this issue. Yup, it does sound naive but go ahead and restart your phone. This will solve most of your problems on your phone.

Now what I’ll suggest is to bookmark this page and if you still get the same issue in future then come back and read the method 2.

Method 2 – Bluetooth getting disconnected on OnePlus 6 /6t

So the restart didn’t help, well, no issues. Just empty your cache and the problem should no longer occur again for a while. So how to wipe your cache? There are two methods and I’ll suggest you to do both.

  1. Open Settings – Storage & memory and scroll down to find Cache data. Tap on it and press OK to clear the cached data.
  2. Now, wipe the cache partition from the recovery menu.
    • Turn off the OnePlus 6/6t, and then press and hold the Volume Up and Power button simultaneously.
    • Release the Power button when the OnePlus logo appears, but continue to hold the Volume Up
    • On the Android recovery screen, use the Volume Down button to navigate down to wipe cache partition and press the Power button to select it.
    • Use the Volume Down button to select Yes — delete all user data, and then press the Power button to confirm.
    • Wait for the reset to finish and press the Power button when prompted with the message to Reboot system now.

Now just use your phone and connect to bluetooth devices and it should not get disconnected at all.

The OnePlus 6T is the company’s most futuristic flagship till date with Screen Unlock on the immersive 6.41-inch Optic AMOLED display, class-leading hardware and meticulous industrial design to create the industry’s fastest and smoothest smartphone experience. It features the latest, most powerful platform, Qualcomm Snapdragon 845, with up to 8GB of RAM that creates an experience that continues to set the standard for performance.
