More RAM won’t necessarily make your phone faster, but for moderate and heavy Android users, it will ensure that performance doesn’t dwindle over a period of time. Thus more RAM is always a good thing. These days, 3GB RAM is just starting to become a common sight among under 10,000 INR smartphones. If you are interested, here are 5 phones which will offer you 3GB RAM under 15,000 INR.
The Xiaomi Mi4 is tad old as of now, but still retains its (metallic) sheen. The handset houses best of last gen hardware which still makes sense as a current gen mid-range device. The software is upgradeable to Lollipop, but MIUI is arguably a self-standing ROM.
Other perks include 5 inch Full HD display, decent camera hardware and a juicy battery.

- Elegant design
- Good software
- Great camera performance
- Sharp and Vibrant full HD display
- Only 16GB storage without option for further expansion
