Here's the list of 10 Best Mobile Phones Under 13000 to 14000 in India 2019

1. Realme U1 64GB

Realme U1 is a selfie-centric budget smartphone from Realme. It comes with a design similar to that of Realme 2 Pro. There is a large 6.3-inch display with a dewdrop notch on top. The bezels are thin and screen to body ratio is above 90% which is excellent. The back has a reflective design and is made of polycarbonate. Polycarbonate does help to keep the phone lightweight. 

Realme U1 is powered by Helio P70 chipset which was launched recently. Helio P70 is a very powerful midrange chipset and beats chips like Kirin 710 and Snapdragon 636-660 in Antutu benchmarks. The power efficiency is decent as well and it does not heat even with heavy usages. The battery inside is 3500 mAh so it will give a backup of 1 day with normal usage.

The rear camera on U1 is a dual 13MP+2MP setup where 2MP is a depth sensor for portrait mode pictures. The rear camera performance is just okay and not the best in the segment. On the front, we have a 25MP single sensor which takes excellent pictures. The large pixel size helps a lot in low light pictures. If you take a lot of selfies then you are going to love Realme U1.

The phone comes in 2 variants: 3GB RAM 32GB Storage and 4GB RAM 64GB Storage. There is a difference of Rs. 2500 in the two variants so if your usage is not that heavy and you are going to use just social media apps and take selfies from the front camera then go for the lower variant. If you use a lot of apps and games then go for the 4-64GB variant.

2. Honor 8C

Honor 7C was a not so exciting underpowered phone that was hard to recommend to anyone. Honor 8C is a good upgrade over 7C and packs improvement in a lot of areas. The design of Honor 8C is decent. There is a big 6.26-inch notch display on the front and dual rear cameras on the back. The display resolution is HD+ which is a bit disappointing. 

The Honor 8C runs on Android 8.1 and will be upgraded to Android Pie soon. The processor is Snapdragon 632 which is latest midrange processor from Qualcomm. It offers 40% better performance as compared to Snapdragon 626 plus it is very power efficient as well. The battery inside is 4000 mAh and thanks to the power-efficient processor and HD display, you can expect a battery backup of 2 days with low to medium usage. 

The dual camera setup on the back consists of a 13MP primary color sensor and 2MP depth sensor for portrait mode pictures. On the front, we have 8MP single camera sensor. There are plenty of AI-related features available which help in scene detection and tweaking the settings. The camera performance of the phone is good in outdoor well lit conditions and satisfactory in indoor conditions. The portrait mode pictures have good edge detection with a natural looking blur.

The Honor 8C comes with 4GB of RAM and 32/64GB of storage. There is just Rs. 1000 difference in 2 storage options so we suggest going for the 64GB variant. 

At this price, Honor 8C is a good option but not the best option. If you don't have a strict budget of 12000 or 13000 then increase it a bit and go for Honor 8X.

3. Asus Zenfone Max M2

Asus Zenfone Max M2 and Max Pro M2 are the successors of Zenfone Max M1 which was one of the bestsellers in the under Rs. 15000 segment. The M2 and M2 Pro packs improvement in the processor, camera, and design and look like good upgrades.

The Zenfone Max M2 is the budget variant and comes with a simple design and Snapdragon 632. The back design is the same as Zenfone Max Pro M1 and on the front, there is one minor change which is that now we have a notch display. The display resolution is just HD which is a bit disappointing because it is a large 6.3-inch display and if you are used to high-resolution displays, this is going to look pixelated. If you are not used to high-resolution displays then you won't probably notice it.

The processor inside the Zenfone Max M2 is Snapdragon 632 with 3/4GB of RAM and 32/64GB of storage. There is a difference of Rs.2000 in the two variants and if you are a heavy user, go for the 4-64GB variant. The Snapdragon 632 is a good processor and power efficient as well. It will handle switching between apps and games without any issues. The battery inside the phone is 4000 mAh which means you can expect a backup of 1.5 to 2 days on a single charge.

The camera on Zenfone Max M2 is probably the best camera on an under Rs. 10000 smartphone. On the rear, we have a dual camera system (13 MP + 2 MP) that will help you take bright photos any time of the day, or even at night. The 2 MP camera is a depth sensor for bokeh/portrait mode pictures. The 13 MP primary camera has a wide F1.8 aperture, 1.12 µm (micrometer) pixel size, and 0.03S PDAF for clear and vibrant photos in almost any lighting condition. Plus, it has EIS and you can record up to 4K UHD videos. Asus has also added some AI features which help to detect scenes and improve performance.

Overall, Zenfone Max M2 is a well-balanced smartphone under Rs. 10000. It has a good processor, it can take great pictures and the battery backup is excellent as well.

4. Nokia 5.1 Plus

Nokia 5.1 Plus is a budget phone from Nokia which comes with an excellent build quality, looks very premium and has a powerful processor. Nokia 5.1 Plus has a glass design which gives it a premium look and makes it a bit slippery as well. On the front, we have a 5.8 inch HD display with a notch. The resolution is not full HD so that's a negative but still the clarity, color reproduction and brightness is good. 

Inside there is an Helio P60 processor which is a very powerful chipset and power efficient as well. Performance wise, it is a bit better than Snapdragon 660 so that's great. To assist the multitasking there is just 3GB of RAM. The phone runs on stock android with no bloatware at all so even with 3GB RAM, the performance is great and you won't face any lags. For storage, there is 32GB of storage. 

The battery inside is 3060mAh which provides average battery backup. With normal usage, you can expect a backup of 1 day on a single charge. The charger provided is 5V 2Amp normal charger.

On the back, we have a dual camera setup of 13MP PDAF f/2 + 5MP Depth Sensor. On the front, we have a single 8MP sensor. The performance of the camera is decent overall with natural looking pictures and a good amount of detail. The portrait mode also works well with good edge detection and natural looking bokeh. 

If you need a handy phone that is not too big, looks great and performs well then Nokia 5.1 Plus is for you. Nokia has been providing software updates quickly so that's another plus point.

5. Redmi Note 6 Pro

Redmi Note 6 Pro is the successor of Redmi Note 5 Pro which was the bestselling dual camera phone of 2018. Note 6 Pro is very much like the 5 Pro and has some little improvements. The design and body are same as that of Note 5 Pro. The only major change in looks is that the display has a notch on the top. The dual camera placement on the back is still same as before.

The battery, processor and RAM/Storage configurations are also same as before. Note 6 Pro also gives excellent battery backup like Note 5 Pro. You can expect it to last for around 2 days with low to medium usage. The Snapdragon 636 processor with 4/6GB of RAM handles the multitasking well with no lag in the day to day usage. Games also run fine on the Redmi Note 6 Pro.

The camera has some big improvements. The dual camera sensor on the back is still 12MP+5MP but has a larger aperture and bigger pixel size which helps a lot in low light photography. General pictures taken indoors look way better as compared to the pictures takes on Note 5 Pro so that a plus. On the front, Xiaomi has added a secondary sensor with the main 20MP sensor and the selfies also come out good with proper edge detection. You can also change the amount of bokeh after taking the pictures.

Overall, Redmi Note 6 Pro is a well-balanced device with great camera performance. If you are a Redmi fan and need a good camera phone then go for it, otherwise, take a look at Realme 2 Pro and Honor 8X which look much better than Note 6 Pro but cameras aren't that good.
