Like me, you are also tired of those custom UI that comes with the phone. Apart from slowing down your phone, they come with lots of bloatware which is impossible to remove.
And if your device is not that popular, then you are stuck with irregular or no updates and patches.
But that’s is not the case in Android One phones. The performance is fluid, less bloatware, and guaranteed update and monthly security patches.
Here is the list of best Android One phones under 10000.
Some phones are little bit old, but are value for money.
- Xiaomi Mi A2
- Nokia 4.2
- Motorola One Macro
- Infinix note 5
Let see the specs of these devices.
This phone was launched in 2018. Although it is 2 years old, the feature you get at this price is fantastic. The A2 design is not that unique but is slim.

It comes with a USB type C charger and can charger the device from 0 to 35% in 30 minutes.
So it will take around one and a half hours to fully charge a 3000 mAh battery which I think is horrible. But it supports Quick charge 3.0 with might be helpful.
Snapdragon 660 can handle the majority of demanding app quite well. It can play heavy games like PUBG with ease.
The camera you get at this price is simply amazing. The rear camera takes a good shot at daylight with good details and in low light, the photo has good detail and no loss of color.

Launched in May 2019 Nokia 4.2 has the smallest screen size in this list, i.e. 5.7 inches. It’s built of plastic but is very pleasant in the hands.
The gap between the back and the fingerprint scanner is almost absent and tends to make identifying the scanner hard.
