Buyer's Guide: Top Mobile Phones for College Students Below Rs 10,000

    If it's the phase of your life when you are ready to begin your college and looking for a new smartphone to accompany you the very first day, then it's time for you to head the online market first. But before you are going for the latest smartphone purchase, think again, as it will be the first year and also ragging time, when unexpected incidents can take place.

    So GizBot would suggest you to better maintain a low and down to the earth profile and save the flaunts for the next year. Ideally you should get the cheapest or an average handset which should deliver you a decent performance and high end specs. Basically, it should have a decent camera, colour screen, FM radio, internet and a texting-friendly keypad.
