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

1. Honor 10 Lite

Honor 10 Lite is the successor of Honor 9 Lite which was launched in Jan 2018 and was one of the bestselling budget phones of 2018. The Honor 10 Lite aims to replicate the success in 2019 but faces a very different market as new players like Realme have come in and are offering great value for money smartphones in the budget segment.

Honor 10 Lite comes with a dew-drop notch display of 6.21-inch size. The resolution is Full HD+ and the aspect ratio is 19.5:9. The display panel has good color reproduction and viewing angles are decent as well. It gets bright but not too bright so using it under direct sunlight can be difficult. The back of the phone has a glossy reflective back which gives it a nice premium look. The device feels good in the hand and is easy to use as well. 

 The phone comes with a 3400 mAh battery and battery backup is just above average. You can expect 1 day of backup on a single charge which is not exiting at all. The charging speed isn't fast either. 

Kirin 710 chipset powers the Honor 10 Lite and there is 4 to 6GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. The 6GB RAM variant is overpriced so just go with the 4GB variant. The processor is a decent performer and handles gamers and multi-tasking easily. The experience is fluid for the most part. The software is EMUI 9 which is based on Android 9 Pie. Some useful customizations are available on EMUI 9 with some bloatware.

The camera on the rear is 13MP+2MP with an F/1.8 + F/2.4 Aperture lens. The 2MP is the depth sensor Honor has been using since ages. The F/1.8 aperture does help in getting better low light pictures from the rear dual camera. The front selfie camera is 24MP shooter which takes excellent selfies in both indoor low light and outdoor well-lit conditions. The camera performance of Honor 10 Lite is one of the best you would find in under 15000 price segment. 

Overall, Honor 10 Lite is a well-balanced smartphone under 15000. It faces tough competition from phones like Realme 2 Pro and Redmi Note 6 Pro which are the bestsellers in this segment.

2. 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.

3. 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.

4. Asus Zenfone Max Pro M2

Asus Zenfone Max Pro M2 comes with a new design. The back is polycarbonate but it has a reflective back design which looks really nice. The dual camera setup is placed vertically on the top left and the logo and fingerprint sensor are placed at the center. On the front, we have a 6.26-inch Full HD+ notch display. The notch size is fine and it houses the front camera, flash, and speaker. The display has good color reproduction but the brightness isn't that great and you will notice that only while using the phone outdoors in bright conditions.

The Zenfone Max Pro M2 is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 processor. There are 3 variants available 3GB 32GB, 4GB 64GB and 6GB 64GB. If your usage is low, 3-32GB variant would be fine for you, for medium usage go for 4-64 and heavy users can go for 6GB RAM variant so get a smooth experience. Snapdragon 660 processor performs really well with Stock Android and you won't notice any lag during the day to day usage. Medium and heavy games also run fine on Zenfone Max Pro M2.

On the camera side, we have a dual camera setup on the back. Asus is using a 12 MP Sony IMX486 sensor which comes with F1.8 aperture, 6P Lens and 1.25 µm (micrometer) pixel size for photos that are bright and vibrant. EIS support is also there which would help in recording stable 4K videos. The 5MP secondary sensor is used to provide depth effect in portrait mode pictures. The edge detection is decent but not the best. Asus should improve this with a software update. On the front, we get a 13MP camera with flash for low light selfies. The performance of the front camera is good and it can take well-detailed pictures with good color reproduction. 

On the battery side, Asus has added a massive 5000 mAh battery which would last for 2 days on a single charge. Even with a big battery, the phone weighs 175g and is not that heavy.

Overall, Asus Zenfone Max Pro M2 is an impressive mid-range smartphone. If you have a budget of Rs. 15000 then this is one of the best options available.

5. Vivo V9 Pro

Vivo V9 Pro is the successor of last year's Vivo V9 which was one of the bestsellers in the 20000 segment. Surprisingly, V9 Pro comes with better specs at a lower price. It is not like a lot have changes but still, small changes and lower price makes it a good option in 15000 to 20000 segment.

Vivo V9 Pro has a large 6.3-inch notch display on the front with minimal bezels. The display has Full HD+ resolution and the overall quality is good with nice colors and viewing angles are decent. On the back, we have a reflective design in Nebula Purple variant which looks very cool. If you don't like the flashy design then you can go for the normal black color variant.

Inside the V9 Pro, there is Snapdragon 660 chipset with 4GB RAM and 64GB storage. It runs on FunTouch OS 4.0 which is a bloated version of Android 8.1. Vivo tends to add a lot of stuff which makes it bloated and not easy to use. If you are coming from a Stock Android phone, you might find it difficult at first but you will get used to it. The performance of the phone is decent and it is able to handle switching between multiple apps and games with ease. 

On Camera side, we have a dual 13+2MP rear camera setup and 16MP front selfie camera. The rear secondary lens is a depth sensor for bokeh effect pictures. The front camera also takes portrait mode pictures with a single lens. The camera performance of the rear is good but not great. Pictures look good for everyday use but are not that detailed. Dynamic range is not great either. The selfies from the front camera look nice. Vivo has plenty of beauty modes, filters, and stickers built inside the camera app so if you are into those, you are going to like V9 Pro.

The battery inside the V9 Pro is 3260 mAh and will last for a day with normal usage. The phone weighs just around 150 gms and is easy to use. It also comes with a transparent case inside the box. 

If you like Vivo and need a phone at a price of around 15000 which looks different and has powerful internals then you can consider V9 Pro.

6. Motorola One Power

Motorola One Power is Motorola's Android One smartphone with a massive 5000 mAh battery. It is priced around Rs. 15000 and in India and comes with decent specs. Looks wise, Motorola One Power is a just like other smartphones in this range. It has a metal unibody design with a dual camera placed vertically on the back with fingerprint at the center. The display is 19:9 aspect ratio notch display and 6.2 inches large. The bezels around the display are narrow and overall size of the device is manageable. 

The device is a bit heavy at 205 gms. This is mainly because of the massive 5000 mAh battery inside the device. You can expect a backup of 2 days on a single charge with medium to heavy usage. With low usage, it can last for 2.5 to 3 days which is excellent. 

The One Power is powered by Snapdragon 636 chipset and comes with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. The OS is stock Android with no bloatware so 4GB RAM is able to handle multiple apps and games with ease. Regular day to day usage is a breeze. Since it is an Android One smartphone, the software updates should be pretty quick.

On the camera side, we have a 16MP+5MP dual rear camera setup and 16MP front camera. The MP numbers are great but the performance is average at best. If the camera is your priority then Moto One Power is going to disappoint you. It is not like the pictures are terrible, they look fine overall but you can get much better performance with phones like Redmi Note 6 Pro and Mi A2.

Overall, Moto One Power is a decent smartphone for those who need a smartphone with a clean Android experience and a massive battery.

7. 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.

8. Mi A2

Mi A2 is the successor of last year's Mi A1 which was Xiaomi's first Android One phone. It came with stock android, great camera, nice design and a great price. Mi A1 was one of the bestsellers in India and this year Xiaomi has launched the Mi A2. 

Mi A2 has a similar metal unibody design like the Mi A1. The display on the front is now 5.99 inches 18:9 aspect ratio display. The display is of good quality with nice colors, good contrast and saturation. The display is covered by Gorilla glass which will protect it from scratches. 

This time Xiaomi has placed a 20MP+12MP dual rear camera on the Mi A2. There is no telephoto lens like there was last time so you cannot zoom in without losing quality. The front camera is 20MP sensor. Like Mi A2, Mi A2 also takes great pictures with a lot of details, good colors. Portrait mode also works well with good edge detection. 

The Mi A2 is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 chipset which is a powerful midrange processor. There is 4GB RAM and 64GB storage. Powerful processor, plenty of RAM and stock android makes the phone very fluid. It can handle multiple apps and games with ease. You can also play heavy games like PUBG and Asphalt 9. 

Mi A2 has some negatives as well. First one is that it does not have a headphone jack. The second one is that it does not have a MicroSD slot to increase storage and the third is the average battery. The battery is just 3010 mAh and would last for a day on low to medium usage. With heavy usage, you will exhaust the battery in the evening which isn't great. 

Go for Mi A2 if you need a great camera, stock Android experience under 15000 to 20000 Rs.
