Sony Xperia M (Single SIM, Black)

Sony Xperia M

The Sony Xperia M SingleSIM phone is an unlocked smartphone based on the older Android JellyBean 4.3 OS. A 1 GHz dual-core processor and 1 GB RAM work handily to support multiple apps simultaneously. Unlike other phones on our list, this phone has only a 4-inch TFT touchscreen, although the display is bright and coated for scratch-resistance. The battery of the Xperia M offers a Stamina Mode to enhance battery life.

The Xperia M’s primary advantage is its camera and associated app suite. The 5 MP rear camera has a super-high resolution plus LED flash, as well as auto-focus, touch-focus, panorama, image stabilization and other easy to use features. The phone’s webcam is easy to use for selfies, 30 fps HD video and even low-light pictures and video. A feature called “fast capture” allows the camera to wake from sleep mode instantly. A dedicated camera button on the phone lets users take pictures from the lock screen. Even in strong backlight conditions, the HDR feature provides clear images.

Users also like the apps contained in the Sony Xperia M suite. Sony’s Throw Miracast feature allows users to transfer content to Wi-Fi-enabled televisions through screen mirroring or DLNA technology. Users can watch streaming movies, play games or more using this app. Smart Connect lets users control every function of the phone when connected to the smartphone accessories. For instance, it detects when the audio headset is attached, and automatically starts the music player. When a user’s Sony SmartWatch comes in contact with the Xperia M, it automatically allows the user to organize the watch.

The OmniBalance design still has many intricate and elegant design elements, and the phone is available in purple, yellow, black and white.

Samsung Galaxy Grand 2 (Black, 8GB)

Samsung Galaxy Grand 2

The Samsung Galaxy Grand 2 is another smartphone still running on the older Android v4.3 OS. Its processor is a 1.2 GHz quad-core paired with 1.5 GB RAM and 8 GB internal memory. It does have the dualSIM technology, significantly boosting its capabilities for users. The Grand 2 offers Internet connectivity at 2G, 3G, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth. It also has a mobile hotspot feature and supports USB v2.0. The dualSIM function lets users make and receive calls on one SIM card while using the other for work calls or Internet access.

The Galaxy Grand 2 has a 5.25-inch HD touchscreen with ambient light sensors on-board the phone. It has an aspect ratio of 16:9 for excellent viewing of videos, movies and games. Colours look bright and sharp even in direct sunlight. A 2600 mAh battery provides nearly 17 hours of talk time. The primary camera on the Grand 2 is only 8 MP, although it has several nice features like a LED flash, autofocus and touch focus. It also shoots HD video, sound and shoot photos and more. On the front, the Grand 2 has a 1.9 MP camera next to the touchscreen. It works well for video calls and selfies.

Samsung offers a wide range of apps to support the Galaxy Grand 2, including a dedicated audio player, and a video player capable of decoding multiple formats. GPS for maps, Bluetooth device pairing, and data transfer apps are handy additions to the Grand 2 suite. Club Samsung is an entertainment channel provided with videos, live TV, movies and music, games and more. Users can choose from multiple Indian languages and customize their user experience. A Multi-Window function divides the screen into two frames so users can work on two functions, or watch a video while checking email.

The Grand 2 shares an appearance with the Samsung Galaxy Se, including a mosaic pattern on the bezel. The look and feel are stylish, especially the soft, textured back cover with leather-like stitching. The phone is portable, easy to use with only one hand and it comes in black, white and pink. Customer reviews generally like the Samsung Galaxy Grand 2, but bemoan the use of the older OS in the otherwise well-done smartphone.

HTC Desire 626G+ (Blue Lagoon, 8GB)  

HTC Desire 626G

The HTC Desire 626G+ phone utilizes a 1.7 GHz octa-core processor with 1 GB RAM and 8 GB internal memory. It also features dualSIM functionality and software for smart switching between two different phone numbers. The screen is a 5-inch high-resolution HD touchscreen that doubles as a viewfinder for the cameras. High-speed LTE internet connectivity allows for streaming video and gaming, too. For budget rs 15000 you can easily find 16Gb internet memory phones but every user has different requirement, in case you need more memory then I recommended you take a look at above phones.

A 2000 mAh Li-Ion battery powers the Desire 626G+, giving it 10 hours of talk time on 2G. It comes with a power saving mode like other HTC Desire phones. User reviews indicate the battery should ideally be more powerful for a phone with the octa-core technology, and this phone gets warm when multi-tasking or gaming.

The 626G+ has the standard 13 MP primary camera and 5 MP front camera that are available on other smartphones in this price range. Gesture controls for the front camera help make selfies easier. The HTC Cloud Gallery lets users upload and store videos and photos, or save them from online or social media with the simple tap on the screen. Both cameras have a BSI sensor for good photos in low-light conditions. Both cameras also support full-HD video recording. Post-processing apps let users clean up photos and remove skin blemishes before posting photos to the Web.

Like the other HTC Desire models, the 626G+ phone comes in a stylish, slim frame. It has a three piece body with a matte soft-touch edge to help ensure a stable grip. Customers like the premium feel of the phone. They are not pleased that the phone does not offer the newest HTC Sense User Interface, and they are also critical of the small amount of RAM available for user apps. This causes lags and stutters during multi-tasking, they report, because the Desire 626+ lacks a way to move apps to an SD card and it does not support USB OTG.
