The budget Android market is where all the action has shifted. There is cut-throat competition and companies and heated spec wars have resulted in consumers emerging as huge winners, with several options to choose from like never before. Till mid last year, 2GB RAM was counted as ludicrous expectation for even a 15 K smartphone, and now several players are offering that for less than 10,000 INR. Let’s take a look at five 5.5 Inch phablets with 2 GB RAM, which you can buy for under 10,000 INR.

As you would have noticed, all of these devices are available only via online retail stores. Unfortunately, those selling in brick and mortar stores are not as captivating.
