Want a budget smartphone that looks like a premium smartphone? In honor of 10 Lite should be on your list. Sporting a gradient glass back design and waterdrop notch, the Honor 10 Lite punches way higher than its price tag would otherwise.
The Honor 10 Lite offers several important upgrades in terms of power and camera for the Honor 9 Lite. This combined with the stunning design and aggressive starting price of Rs 10,999 make this a very noteworthy addition to this list.
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 up to one Android 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 12,000, the Mi A2 is the one for you.
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.

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 12,000. 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.
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 12,000, the Galaxy M20 is a good choice.
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.
