So its a fact we always want to keep ourselves updated to the latest fashion, latest Outlets in your area, latest movies and of course latest “Smartphones”. Most of the time its hard deciding what you should purchase and even more difficult when your low on cash. You want a new Smartphone that’s best in specs especially with a good camera and within a modest price for you. So I am going to round up 5 best Smartphones which you can asset under pkr ‘15,000’.

1) Lenovo Vibe K5 Plus:
Price: Rs 13,799

Lenovo’s Vibe K5 Plus is a stunner for a cost effective smartphone, it has a plastic built with metallic edges and rounded corners. Featuring a 5 inch full HD display with dimensions (142 x 71 x 7.9 mm) makes it easy to handle in one hand. Speaking of its 5 inch 1080 x 1920 pixels IPS display, it will not disappoint you. Vibrant colors are showcased along with decent viewing angles, the text itself is pretty sharp. Powered by a Snapdragon 616 chipset clocked at 1. 5 GHz, its performance is much better than other Smartphones in this price range.
vibe K5 plus comes with a 13 Megapixels main camera acompanied with a LED flash and a wide f/2.2 aperture lens. Close up shots especially in bright daylight and mid-afternoon come out excellent with accurate color reproduction. You might face a slight issue when focusing to take a far off shot, besides that everything is in top shape. A 5 Megapixels front camera also takes decent photography in well lit conditions and provides a beauty mode for its users and a number of filters.

A 13 Megapixels rear camera is situated on the top left corner of the phone along with a LED flash. The front camera is of 5 Megapixels and both have an aperture of f/2.2 lens. Photos taken by the main camera come out looking gorgeous in daytime, for night time it supports low-light enhancement for extracting details.

3) Honor 5A

This smartphone in my opinion is the best budget camera smartphone you can get for just Rs 11,500. Honor 5A is powered by the Octa-Core Qualcomm snapdragon 617 chipset clocked at 1.2 GHz. It houses a large 3100 mAh battery which is another bonus as compared to its predecessors. There is 2 GB of RAM with 16 GB of ROM acompanied by microSD memory extension upto 128 GB.

Photos taken show accurate details and the macro photography experience is pretty good for its price. The selfie cam shoots some perfect shots in good day light with precise color reproduction with a nice bokeh appearance. Its not as good as the high end smartphones but for the price being it works out exemplary.

Coolpad Note 3 Plus reveals a 5.5 inch full HD edge to edge screen, like all other Smartphones in this budget it is also plastic built but with metallic edges. Looks and feels great to hold. the screen supports 1080 x 1920 pixels of resolution which is also IPS rated and enhances the display quality. Thankfully it boosts a fingerprint scanner for the age which we dont normally find in this price range (Smartphones we ‘Want’ a fingerprint scanner).

Coming to the camera you get a 13 Megapixels rear camera with variable focus and single-tone LED flash. Shots taken are sharp with vibrant color reproduction, they might be exposed to noise and lose in detail in low lit conditions but in adequate lightning the photo quality is superb. The 5 Megapixels front camera misses out on autofocus, with experience you wont face any issue bringing out the best in shots. Overall for its price the camera quality is outstanding.

You can adjust the white balance, saturation, contrast, ISO and sharpness there’s also a qualified HDR mode. Pictures come out looking accurately colored with good contrast, even in low light you get acceptable quality photos.
