Budget smartphones under Rs15,000

- Post Report, Kathmandu

Aug 19, 2017-The smartphone is now ubiquitous in today’s society, with people from all walks of life using one. From reading news to video calling with loved ones, a smartphone offers the ability to do things that were considered ‘sci-fi’ just a few decades ago.

Buying a smartphone in Nepal can be daunting task as the market has been flooded with brands jostling for supremacy. But there are companies that understand the needs of the average Nepali consumer by introducing smartphones that are easy on the wallet. There are many smartphones costing less than Rs15,000 perfect for those looking to pick one up for their children, grandparents or even themselves.

Companies like Samsung, Huawei, Gionee and Xiaomi are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to budget smartphones costing less than Rs15,000. There are certain trade-offs when buying a budget smartphone. It will not have the fancy dual cameras found on flagship phones nor the latest and sexiest technology but it offers one a foot into the vast and exciting world of smartphones. 

These smartphones will not set benchmarks on fire but will do the same things as more expensive smartphones, albeit at a slower pace. And when you eventually drop the phone ‘accidentally’, repair costs will not be astronomical. 

Above are some of the best budget phones that you can pick up for under Rs15,000 in Nepal.
