Budget smartphones are a dime a dozen, but not all of them are equally useful. Xiaomi has long reigned supreme when it comes to the best budget smartphones in India, but rivals like Samsung and new kid on the block, Realme, aren't giving it a tough fight.
As a result, there are some great options when it comes to phones under Rs 10,000. In such a case, finding the best phone that suits your needs while offering great value for money can be a bit of a task.
But don't worry, if you want to know what are the best phones under Rs 10 in India, we are here with a few answers.

Combing the minimalist design with the traditional high build quality that you would expect from a Samsung smartphone, the Galaxy M10 is the most affordable Galaxy smartphone recently launched in India. The waterdrop notch on the front further emphasizes the design of the Galaxy M10, allowing Samsung to squeeze into more screen real estate.
While the performance of the mid-range camera and the Galaxy M10 may not be the most powerful smartphone in this segment, it should appeal to users who want a decent smartphone from a trusted brand.
Redmi Note 7S replaces Redmi Note 7 and offers a 48MP camera under Rs 10,000. It has the same gradient glass back design, waterdrop notch and bright quality display at the same time.
When you also consider a massive 4,000 mAh battery and updated MIUI skin, the Redmi Note 7S sounds like a very good deal.
Xiaomi has many options for users in several price ranges. The standard Redmi series slots in the sub-Rs 10 series, sometimes conflicting with the base Redmi Note phone and the entry-level Redmi series.
However, this is another option for buyers looking for a smartphone under Rs 10,000. The Redmi 7 sports a design, gradient and waterdrop notch that could be an attractive feature set at a starting price of Rs 7,499.
The smart design, combined with a huge 4,000 mAh battery and a price tag of Rs 7,499 make the Redmi 7 an indispensable option in this range.
The Realme 3 is a fabulous device, thanks mainly to the stunning blue and black gradient design on the back. While the bezels look a bit too thick on the front, the Realme 3 is a beauty.
The camera experience is average and some users may not be too good for ColorOS, but the Realme 3 is a worth considering option nonetheless. The large battery paired with HD+ resolution and a mid-range processor should give you two days of battery life under normal use.

Like its successor, the Honor 9 Lite is a great design, giving it a premium feel that belies the price.
The 18:9 aspect ratio of the display is vibrant and is reason enough to buy this phone. It also has four camera setups, making it a good option for those who want a decent camera experience in this price range. No support for fast charging, which may be a deal breaker for some, but at this price, there's little to complain about.

The case offers great value for money with its hardware, but the MIUI skin has its fair share of criticism. For such users, the company has a line of One smartphones that offer the stock Android experience combined with the value for money that Xiaomi smartphones are famous for.
The Mi A2 might seem a bit old at this point, but if you're looking for that smooth, stock Android experience under Rs 10,000, the Mi A2 is the one for you.
Samsung has been trying to realign itself in the budget segment for a while now, and the Galaxy M series is a good testament to the company's efforts. The Galaxy M20 offers a good balance between power, performance and battery life.
The Galaxy M20's discreet, minimalistic design coupled with waterdrop notch, bright display and massive battery help it make it to this list. If you want a Samsung phone under Rs 10,000, the Galaxy M20 is a good choice.
