The competitive smartphone market is getting fierce with multi-cored processors and large 5-inch displays. While not everyone can afford such devices from top of the crop phone makers, some Indian manufacturers have ensured that we enjoy the next-gen quad-core efficiency at an affordable price. Lately, a slew of such handsets have been launched in the Indian mobile space – sporting all the nifty features that one expects in a high-end smartphone. We have jotted down the latest quad-core budget smartphones priced under Rs 15,000.
Xolo Q1000 – Rs 14,999
The quad-core Xolo Q1000 packs in a nifty set of features for Rs 14,999. Following the latest fad of large screen smartphones, the Xolo Q1000 brings the "phablet" experience with its scratch resistant 5-inch display, which won't disappoint you with its HD quality viewing. The smartphone is up for pre-order and online sites are selling it for a lower sum of around Rs 13,999. This new handset appears to be a worthy adversary to the Micromax Canvas HD. Powered by a 1.2GHz quad-core processor, the Xolo Q1000 runs on Android v4.2 Jelly Bean.

How do you choose between the iPhone 5 and Galaxy S4? On the one hand, the iPhone 5 is an entirely known entity that just works. You might not be getting the most exciting or feature-rich smartphone, but at least you know exactly what you’re getting. Samsung’s Galaxy S4, on the other hand, is world’s apart from the iPhone 5: It’s huge, and massively powerful, and it has a ton of features that might be awesome or gimmicky, depending on your point of view.
The best bet, if you need help choosing between the iPhone 5 and Galaxy S4, is for us to start at the beginning: the hardware. We’ll then work our way up through the software, first- and third-party support, and other features that might break the tie.
