There are a couple of respectable camera phones available in the market such as the iPhone 6 and the Galaxy Note 4. Or you can even consider the Nokia Lumia 1020 - it has got a great camera, in a compact size. These product names may sound too good to ears, but you have to spend a fortune to afford them.
Users who don't have Rs. 53,000 to drop on an iPhone have multiple choices, thanks to affordable smartphones blossoming in the lower-end segment.
Google's "Android One" program currently trying to push entry-level Android phones in India. Similarly, Microsoft has a number of low-end phones with decent camera capabilities. You could get the Lumia 535 for as low as Rs. 7,500 in India.
So here are our top 10 entry-level smartphones with decent camera capabilities. Stay tuned to GizBot for more updates!
Xiaomi Redmi 1S
The back camera on the Redmi 1S is irrespirable. The 8MP rear-facing camera offers excellent shots even in low light conditions. The device is priced at Rs.5,999
Microsoft Lumia 535
The Lumia 535 has a fast, easy to use 5MP rear-facing camera that produces decent images; though the camera seemed weak in taking shots in low light conditions. The device is now available at around Rs. 7,500.
It may not have the best rear-facing camera; however, we particularly found the 3MP shooter pretty decent. The image quality of shots were sharp and blur free. The phone is now available at Rs. 5,700.
Lenovo A6000 is stuffed with an 8MP rear-facing camera. The camera seemed to be above average in our tests. It should be decent enough for an average user. It is priced at Rs.6,999.
Asus ZenFone 5 8GB
Here's a smartphone with power packed imaging capabilities. At a price of Rs. 7,999, you are getting an 8MP shooter on the rear back. Plus the device has got an improved camera UI that will surely enhance the experience.
Micromax Yu Yureka
The smartphone comes with a 13MP shooter at an affordable price tag and offers one of the best HDR modes we've seen on an entry-level handset.
Huawei Honor Holly
The Holly's rear-facing camera is very close to a pricy mid-end handset. The 8MP back camera seemed to be impressive in our testing.
Motorola Moto E
Its 5MP fixed focus camera seemed to be outdated; still, the camera will work tirelessly in extreme conditions.
The Xolo One houses a 5MP rear-facing camera. The Android 5.0 Lollipop smartphone is now available around Rs.6,000.
Karbonn Sparkle V
This wasn't expected to be a top-notch camera phone; but honestly we found it extremely pleasing to use the Sparkle V.
