Best Smartphone From An Indian Brand 2015 ( all released before Feb 2015)

With the Chinese incursion and concerted efforts by other brands from countries like Taiwan and the US, the going has not been easy for local vendors. However, we’ve seen some solid contenders in this category and the winner was quite tough to choose.

The Knight also stands out as one of the first smartphones from an Indian brand that can face premium rivals from global brands without flinching.

Best Budget Smartphone Of The Year 2014

The budget segment saw a lot of action this year, and for the first time, we saw affordable devices that offered smooth, lag-free usage, presenting capable options to consumers without involving any big compromises. The category was dominated by brands like Motorola, Xiaomi and ASUS, though Indian brands offered strong competition. For this award, we’re considering smartphones that were priced below Rs 8,000. Let’s take a look at the Top 5:

  • Moto E
  • Xiaomi Redmi 1s
  • Android One range
  • ASUS Zenfone 4 A450CG

Xiaomi Redmi 1s: The winner of this particular category was almost a given. With the kind of specs it offers, the Xiaomi Redmi 1s is unbeatable, considering its asking price of Rs 5,999.

Phone Of The Year 2014

From mind-boggling value-for-money deals to phones that sold out in mere seconds, innovative devices to loaded ones that offered the best specs and tons of features – this year saw it all. That said, there’s space for only one at the top, and our criteria for shortlisting contenders for our biggest title, the 91mobiles Phone of the year, was pure all-round capabilities. Again, there were quite a few that made the cut:

  • HTC One (M8)
  • BlackBerry Passport
  • Apple iPhone 6 Plus
  • OnePlus One
  • Sony Xperia Z3
  • Moto X (2nd-gen)
  • Samsung Galaxy Note 4

Winner – Samsung Galaxy Note 4: This is what we’ve been waiting for and this is where the drum roll reaches a crescendo… the one that, in our opinion, was the best phone of the year. And that ladies and gentleman, was the Samsung Galaxy Note 4. It’s a smartphone that offers everything – powerful innards, a superb 2K display, long battery life, great camera and unmatched features in terms of both hardware and software. It’s a very worthy option even without it, but the included S Pen and its capabilities can take usage and productivity on the go to a totally different level. Well deserved!

      You can buy Sony Xperia J, Sony Xperia Neo L or Samsung Galaxy S Duos S7562. I Recommend you to try Micromax, Karbonn or Lava phones they are great at this Price point, in fact have better specs and performance than Sony and Samsung.
