Moto G5 Plus
While leaks of a new Moto G-series phones are making the round, we reckon the older Moto G5 is still one of the better buys if your budget is limited to just Rs. 15,000. The G5 Plus also may not have a dual camera, but it does offer a good all round performance. The best part of the phone however is its camera, which we reckon is currently among the best camera you can get on sub-15K smartphone.
The Moto G5 Plus is one of the best smartphones under Rs 15,000. Dominating the sub 20K category, the Moto G5 Plus was launched in two storage variants – 3GB RAM/16GB internal storage and 4GB RAM/32GB internal storage. However, only the 3GB/16GB variant falls under the Rs 15K price segment.
It is the first G series phone to come with a metal build and looks very fresh and premium.
