Top 7 Android HD Phones under 15000 Rs- Affordable smartphones with sharp display

Gone are the days when people didn’t care much about the quality of their phone’s display. The tiny displays of legacy phones have evolved to ones boasting 16.7M colors and high-definition, full-HD, and even quad-HD resolution. While having a display resolution of 3840×2160 pixels on a small 5-inch display makes no sense to me, I also find phones having 5-inch or larger displays with low resolution(less than 720p) to be unusable. After all, it is the display which you will be looking at all day long. So, if you are like me and don’t like using a phone having a grainy display, then this article will be very helpful to you for finding out Android HD phones under Rs. 15000.

Read: Why should you not go after the ppi count blindly?

Just like the other list articles on MJ, this one will also list out only a single best Android phone from a manufacturer. To make this possible, I had to omit many phones from Lava, Micromax and Xolo. Only the latest Android HD mobiles with overall good user experience and performance have made into this list. This doesn’t mean that the other phones are bad, but are simply left out for either not having latest Android OS or having other problems in the long-term use.

The new Moto G (2nd gen.) also packs a bright f/2.0 8MP camera for taking great shots in low light conditions. Movie buffs and audio freaks will also find this phone suitable for their needs as it packs a 5 inch IPS LCD display and features dual stereo speakers at the front.

Xiaomi Mi3Xiaomi Mi3

First thing first, this phone doesn’t have an HD display! It has a full HD display instead. It costs just Rs. 13,999 and is available only on flipkart. It also packs amazing hardware for its price point. The most notable part of its hardware details are Snapdragon 800 chipset, 13 MP f/2.2 sensor, and 2GB RAM.

Yes, you can get so much under Rs. 14,000. So, I couldn’t resist but add it to this list of Android HD phones having sharp displays. The only shortcomings of the Mi3 are its limited stock and its non-expandable 16 GB internal memory.

So, if it available for ordering online then just go for it blindly. You can thank us later.

Micromax Canvas 2 Colors A120

micromax canvas 2 colours A120

The Canvas 2 Colours comes with a guaranteed upgrade to Android KitKat v4.4. So, the fact that it runs the stale Android 4.2 can be safely ignored. AIt also runs on MediaTek MT6582 chipset, just like the other phone in its price segment. The 1.3 GHz quad-core processor along with 1GB RAM can surely tackle any task with ease, but given the fact that it only has a 2000 mAh battery with a rated standby time of 225 hours, I seriously doubt that it will last for a full of normal usage.

Karbonn Titanium Octane Plus

The Titanium Octane Plus also made it our list of Android phones with 2GB RAM. This is a full-HD Android KitKat smartphone. I’ve included it in this list for 2 reasons- to give the Karbonn fans a choice from their favourite brand, and because I think that it is the best phone in this price range for showing off purposes until Xiaomi Mi3 arrives.

    Wickedleak Wammy Note 3 & wammy titan 3 should be evaluated & included in the list if found suitable

  • Rahul Sharma says:

    Why would you want a 3rd class phone in the category. Wicked leak can get phones but no service. It has the worlds 3rd class service support. Once phone has left your hand it is at the whims and fancies of the wicked leak team. One bunch of idiots.
