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, Karbonn, Swipe, Micromax, Infocus are making ultra affordable 4G mobiles, that you can explore.

If you have any queries, you can ask in the comments section below or can also check some top suggestions under 5K.
