The ReviewGist pick for the best smartphone under Rs 15K is the OnePlus X. The OnePlus X is the next version to the very well received OnePlus 2 and is a compelling package - outstanding build, great design, super display and comfortable battery life. The only thing which spoils this party is the sub-par camera performance which has been panned widely by all reviewers. Nevertheless, the OnePlus X is still the best mobile in the market right now for under Rs 15000.

The best mobile phone under Rs 15,000 for the month of Feb 2017 is dominated by full spec offerings from the major Chinese manufacturers at a budget price. Even though the engineering and stability (hardware wise) has been found to be lacking in the Chinese made phones for most of 2015, 2016 is already seeing more refined and stable offerings from the Chinese majors.

The dominant smartphone at the sub Rs. 15,000 pricepoint has been Motorola with its Moto G series through much of 2015 and even this year the Moto G Turbo, which is basically a polished, upgraded version of the Moto G is still a very good buy.
