Top 5 Smartphones with 5.5 inch or higher display under 15000 INR

The display of the device is the very first thing a user notices when he holds a device. An excellent display can enhance the user experience tenfold for a smartphone. A big, clear display not only provides more screen real estate and helps intensifying the browsing and multimedia feel, it also helps with basic smartphone functions such as typing and reading messages.

In recent years, we have seen the trend of manufacturers providing bigger displays on their devices. Today, the Indian costumer has a number of large-screen options to choose from amongst any price range. Let us examine the top 5 smartphones with large 5.5 inch or higher displays, available in the mid-range segment of the market for under Rs.15000.

The Micromax A240 has a full HD 1080p 5.7 inch display which is quite vibrant at full brightness. The pixel density is somewhat low at 258 pixels per inch, and as a result some images look washed out on the device. The device comes with Android JellyBean 4.2 and is powered by a 1.2GHz MediaTek MT6589 quad-core Cortex-A7 based processor with 1GB RAM on board, a PowerVR SGX544 GPU with a 2600 mAh battery.

The phone has impressive build quality with an aluminium back and good design. Internal storage space of 16 GB is provided with the device, but surprisingly no slot for external storage is available. The 12 MP rear camera takes decent pictures and a 5 MP front camera is also provided with the device. The phone is available on Amazon.in for Rs.13890.
