10 Best Affordable Smartphone Under Rs 4000 in India (June 2018)

If you are looking to buy a good 4G mobile under 4000 online, from Flipkart or Amazon, you are at the right place. Here are some great suggestions that I have handpicked and updated in June 2018.

I have included 1 GB RAM / 2 GB RAM phones with 4G VOLTE phones on this list. These Android phones offer good camera quality, battery life, performance.

I would recommend buying a 4G smartphone instead of a 3G mobile, as 3G technology is already outdated. (Interesting Read – 3G Smartphones Are Dead, Buy 4G Mobiles as 96% mobiles sold now are 4G).

Don’t buy a 3G Phone no matter if how cheap it is. Also, there are no 5G phones available currently and 5G technology will come after 2020.

We have tried to keep the budget between Rs. 3000 to Rs. 4000, some of the them may be available within Rs. 4500, but not above that value.

Let’s Check 10 Best Affordable Smartphone Under Rs 4000 in India June 2018

So that’s all from my side, do let me know in comments which phone are you planning to buy or if there are any questions.

I will resolutely suggest to buy a 4G mobile rather than buying a 3G phone. Also, for JIO sim users, please check that the phone has 4G VOLTE support before purchasing.

Why Buy a low-cost 4G Phone?

About 96% of the smartphones sold in India are now 4G. So, there is no point in going for a 3G phone currently. India is one of the fastest growing mobile markets in the World. More than 100 crores active mobile phone connection makes it the most lucrative market for smartphone manufacturers.

With the entry of JIO, cheaper 4G smartphones are coming to the market. Companies like Intex, iVoomi, Swipe, Micromax, Infocus are making ultra-affordable 4G mobiles, that you can explore.
