5 Best Android Mobiles Under Rs. 10000

| January 19, 2012 | Comments

Earlier, I had written a blog post on TheOnlyAnil about the 5 best mobile phones under Rs. 10000 which has gone quite old now so I decided to write a new post which lists only Android mobiles as they are in vogue everywhere. Android is growing rapidly because of its awesome user interference and huge variety of apps and games. Some apps and games(which require rich graphics) are only supported by high-end android devices i.e. Samsung Galaxy S2, Galaxy Note, etc. However most of the apps and games require Android 2.1+ OS, so you may expect those mobiles in the list. Here you go:
