► Micromax Spark Go – Made in India 4G Smartphone

Among the Indian smartphone brands, Micromax is the most reliable name for the best budget smartphone. Last week the company launched a brilliant low-cost smartphone, Spark Go in the online market.

Micromax Spark Go, a 4G mobile phone under 4000 Rupees is a value for money smartphone. For general use, this stylish smartphone is best. It runs on the lighter version of Android so is very fluid in multitasking, shows no lag in everyday use. It is not the phone to play action games, however.

Micromax Spark Go 4G Smartphone in 4000 Rupees

The Micromax 4G phone under 4000 Rupees sports a 5-inch screen with IPS display wherein resolution is 480P. The CPU of this phone consists of Unisoc (formerly Spreadtrum) quad-core processor, 1GB RAM, and Mali GPU.

Further, Micromax Spark Go smartphone comes with 8GB Internal memory wherein close to 4GB remains free after the first boot. This phone also supports USB OTG. The 5MP primary camera of this phone can record full HD video, and 2MP selfie camera also has LED flash assistance.

2000-mAh battery of Spark Go, one of the best Micromax Android phones below 4000 Rupees, runs a full day when usages are restricted to calling and listening songs. This is a 4G smartphone, supports VoLTE. Thus, on this phone, you would be able to make voice calls from Jio and other 4G networks without installing their 4G Voice app.

For entertainment, this 1GB RAM 4G mobile has an audio, video player and FM tuner. You can also record live FM programs on this phone.

Decent screen, good signal reception, sensitive MIC, lasting battery, and fluid operating system are the main highlights of this 4G phone. Surprising factor, however, is fewer bloatware. That leaves more device resources available for the end user. Considering everything I would not be wrong in saying Spark Go is the best 4G smartphone if your budget is anything between 3500 to 5000 Rupees.

► Intex Aqua Lions T1 Lite 4G Smartphone

Any budget less than 5000 Rupees is too less for a decent quality smartphone. However, here I need to suggest a fully functional smartphone under 4000 Rupees. After carefully observing all the smartphones launched in the last 6 months I have finalized the Intex smartphone. I will still bet on Intex brand than trusting new mobile phone brands as some of them import smartphones in bulk from China, add their level and sell in the market at a lucrative price. In their comparison, Intex has a reputation in the market and operates service centers across the country.

Intex Aqua Lions T1 Lite

The Intex smartphone has basic features, and its design looks stunning. If you need a branded smartphone in 3000 to 4000 Rupees price range for accessing WhatsApp, Facebook, Google, and similar services, among the latest options, the Intex smartphone is the best option.

The phone has a quad-core processor and 1GB RAM – enough for running multiple apps and browsing with several tabs open. It also has a fully functional camera that takes decent pictures in daylight but as usual not much in low light. Besides the regular functions of Android Camera mechanism, a recognizable feature this phone has is Burst Mode. Burst mode also translates as continuous shooting mode wherein a user takes multiple shots of a steady event or a moving event.

The Aqua Lions T1 Lite is a dual SIM smartphone, and also supports VoLTE for calling through 4G LTE network. I was also impressed with call quality and signal reception. Consider this 4G phone If you need a mobile phone with best signal reception in India under 4000 Rupees. All in all, it is the best phone under 4K budget at present in the market.

► Intex Aqua N7

Intex's this phone earned a place here after wider and careful consideration of all available smartphones with the latest specification. I am not a big fan of Intex brand when it comes to choose a smartphone, though.

The Aqua N7 has been getting the mixed review from end users. Colour composition and outer design making it an impressive and attractive smartphone. It's midnight blue colour coating over a plastic shell gives it a dazing and premium look.

This is a dual SIM smartphone supports mini SIM size and 3G connectivity. It runs on Android KitKat 4.4.2 and upgradable to version 4.4.4.We do not have confirmation on the Android lollipop roll-out from the brand.

The Aqua N7 sports a 4 inches IPS display in 480P resolution with 16.7 M colour production limit. Its display features Twisted Nematic technology, which enhance display quality significantly and reduces power consumption due to display.

Intex Aqua N7 Review and Specifiations

The N7 houses a Spreadtrum Quad Core processor with clock speed of 1.2 GHz for each prong. Addition to this, there is a 512 MB of RAM space and 4GB of memory. The end user has a share of 2.18 GB memory after the first boot.

For photography, the N7 lists a 8MP auto focus primary and 1.3 MP of front facing camera. The primary camera gets LED flash support for quality enhancement and features many functions including panorama shot. For the sake of selfie, 1.3 MP front facing camera seems OK.

1400 mAh battery is not impressive and gives maximum 24 hours of back against normal usages.

I am truly impressed with the overall look and feel of this device. While it lists similar specification as the rest of smartphone, yet its design and overall built earns it a top choice. The Stellar 439 is an equation of style, comfort and latest features.

► Karbonn Titanium Wind W4

I am big fan of windows operating whether I am choosing a laptop or a smartphone. Microsoft has been aggressive in pushing of windows adaptation in developing country like India. The Karbonn W4 is an example of the move.

Karbonn Titanium Wind W4

The Titanium Wind W4 is not a popular device yet I endorse because of its performance, built and multitasking with great smoothness. I have recommended this phone to friends and all of them have rated it the best.

The Wind W4 runs on Windows operating system the Blue 8.1. It is powered by a snapdragon dual core processor with clock speed of 1.2 GHz. For gaming and multitasking it has an Adreno Graphic processor unit and 512 MB RAM. The gadget comes with preinstalled 4GB memory wherein just 3GB is left to consume by end users.

In terms of gaming, the Wind W4 does play Asphalt airborne 8 and Temple Run 2 without showing any sign of lag. Probably, only the Wind W4 has the strength to play high intensity game such as the Asphalt airborne 8 under the 3500 rupees budget segment. You should not worry for multitasking as it does fantastic work.

With its 1950 mAh battery power, users can enjoy multitasking and gaming upto 48 to 60 hours. If you are looking for a basic smartphone with the best of battery then the Wind W4 is a good choice.

In the online reviews, most of the users criticized the smartphone for poor camera. But my opinion defer on the basis of its price tag. We cannot expect Karbonn to add a Sony image sensor in the limited budget of 3300 rupees. It has a 5 MP primary and 0.3 MP front facing camera. Both camera does the noble job and produces some good quality pictures.

Advance feature:-

  1. 4 Inches LCD Display with 480P resolution
  2. Dual SIM support in regular SIM size
  3. Wi-Fi, 3G, USB, Bluetooth, FM and GPS
  4. Regular Windows Operating System Update

Conclusion: This phone has excellent battery life. In my opinion, the Wind W4 from Karbonn mobile one of is the best choices under the budget limitation of 3500 rupees.

  1. Karbonn wind w4 is superb smartphone. I bought for my mother.

    Sleek, simple and long lasting battery.

    This is a good article on low budget smartphone s. Thanks

  2. Very well written article…i have a small query.I’m not a big fan of windows phone. My budget is Rs 4000(max).Requirement(if available) min 4.5 inch screen,at least 1gb Ram and decent camaera. Any android smartphone you can suggest.

    1. Hi Arindam, I have three options to suggest you.

      Option 1 : XOLO Era @ 4444 Rupees For Quad Core Processor, 1GB RAM, 2100 mAh Battery, 5 Inches Screen, 8MP and 2MP Camera. Read More at Paisa Vasool Low Budget Smartphone XOLO Era with USB OTG

      1. Thanx for the reply…it was really helpful….i really appreciate your choices….any views on Karbonn Android One Sparkle V…which i guess is below 4k….once again thank you…

        1. Hi Arindam, Android One Karbonn Sparkle V is almost one year old now. Also, there is unconfirmed news- Google is winding up the Android One project.

          Flipkart, Amazon and Snapdeal is launching heavy discount offer for the Freedom sales. Why not take a benefit of this occasion and avail 10 to 15% discount? I am sure; you will be able to pick one in less than 4000 rupees.

          I cannot make a suggestion without having trust in a Smartphone. Also, Karbonn gets the bottom place in terms of service center response. We have received many complaints related to poor welcome by Karbonn Service centers.

          Karbonn makes good sales in low budget segment. Due to poor quality hardware Karbonn Service centers are loaded with hundreds of daily service requests. Please note, I am not saying, customer gets five star welcome at Micromax and Lava Service centers.

          1. Thanx once again for the explanation….i just went through the xolo era…it seems good enough….well i still have the BUT illness….but in a different way….how is it possible?? 5.5 inch,otg…..omg…:-)…hope its reliable enough for that kind of spec…as of now i’ve zeroed on xolo…

          2. All depends upon RAM Space. You will get lagged performance, when OTG is active in a phone with 512MB RAM. Trust your decision. With 1GB RAM, this Phone has flawless performance. Also, XOLO Era has got brilliant response from users. Currently, it is out of sales at Snapdeal.

  3. HI,

    The more i read your blog…the more i’m spoil for choice(to an extend confused also)….now i need one more suggestions…though not for me but for a family member.budget max 4000, windows phone….so straight away the choice was karbonn wind w4(your pick)…but just comparing some similar phones..i found iball andi 4l pulse…similar specs with 1gb ram(not sure if its true)….can you please throw some light into…which one to buy and why…

    1. 4000 rupees budget category is bit complicated. Finding one good phone with all well-being is really difficult. If you give me little more info on the requirement, I would be able to assist better. I prefer 6 inches phone that cannot a choice for most users.

      Yes, the IBall Andi 4L Pulse comes with 1GB RAM (as told by the brand). You can buy this phone as it has got very good ratings from verified buyers. However, think about post-sales-service. We have received many complaints on poor reception at iBall service center.

      I would bid for Microsoft Nokia Lumia 530 Dual SIM at 4500 rupees. Just for 500 rupees, you should not compromise with quality. Also, Nokia I mean Microsoft has service center at most locations that do give better reception than a service center run by an Indian smartphone brand.

  4. Thanx for the quick reply…you are really dedicated to your blog….well its a simple requirement….the phone is for day to day use(calls,Facebook,YouTube,Skype and ok enough camera)…budget is strictly sub 4000….as per my limited knowledge…in that range i did not find any all in one android decided on windows…karbonn and i ball are the only choice…going by your review i zeroed in on those phones.yes the reviews are good enough…specially performance wise…both the phones have similar specs except iball has 1 gb RAM.i’ve somewhat decided on iball(post sales service are always an issue…not that much of a deal breaker).going by the budget(strict) and requirements(usage)…if you suggest something else….please do let me know. ya IBall Andi 4L Pulse lock kiya jai…???

    1. In that case, the IBall Andi 4L Pulse is much better choice.

      1GB RAM, 4 inches 480P display, 5 inches primary camera BSI sensor with LED flash, Snapdragon 200 quad core process (Wow), 3G and Dual SIM.

      Your choice is really good.

      This phone is available at

      PayTM @ 3444 Rupees
      Amazon India @ 3550 Rupees
      Flipkart @ 3690 rupees

  5. Nice write up. From the discussion, i too thought of buying iBall Andi 4L plus, but the prices are shown as around 4500 now in all sites. Why such huge difference in price?

  6. Hi Amar,

    Thank you for writing this wonderful review. I got a much better idea on cheap smartphones, but I still did not find the answer I was searching the net for. I was wondering if you could help me here. I basically need to buy a phone with wifi connectivity and skype calls (prefer video). I am looking for a budget option, but one that will not sprout unexpected surprises. Eager to read your suggestions.


    1. YU Yunique is an excellent solution for your need. I would suggest opt for 4G LTE smartphone as within three to four months Reliance Jio 4G network will offer 4G video calling at much cheaper rate. Skype is available at Android Play store for free. Install and use for video calling.

      Skype is a product of Microsoft. Therefore, all Windows phone comes with integreted Skype Video calling solution and Wi-Fi connectivity. Also, I endorse Windows over Android. However, good and cheapest Windows phone from Microsoft is Lumia 435 @ 5300 rupees. In the same price you can get YU Yunique or any other 4G LTE supported phone.

  7. Hi, can anyone give me the feedback of Bell smart 101. The phone have very good features of that price range. I am planning to buy, However, I have my doubts since I have never heard of that company.

  8. Nice article. Can u tell me which one is better Xolo era o InFocus m2? I mostly use my phone for games chatting and facebook. If there is a better phone under 4000 can u tell me.(android)

    1. Hi Ishaan, The Infocus M2 is much better option than XOLO Era. However, Infocus M2 has been out of stock since long time now. I have a few suggestion for you. Choose any from Lenovo A2010, Lenovo A1000, InFocus M260, and Honor Bee.

  9. Hi Amar, nice article. I already have an one plus one. I want to buy a secondary phone. So what would you suggest below 4k? My priority is good battery backup, good looks, good performance, good volume. I can give up on camera quality. Also I would love to try a windows phone for a change. Your opinion ? Karbonn Titanium Wind W4 or IBall Andi 4L Pulse or anything else as the article is almost 1 year old.

    1. Hi Abhijit, I have two suggestion: first is a feature phone – LAVA KKT JUMBO and second is a smartphone – Infocus M260. To use as a backup device, I will prefer a feature phone with mammoth battery power. Thus, Lava KKT Jumbo with 4000 mAh battery fuel is a good choice.

      1. Please give me a comparison between Karbonn Titanium Wind W4 (INR 3649, white) vs Infocus M260 (INR 3999, black n yellow), for a backup phone. My preference would be – good battery backup, good looks, good speed/less lag/ good performance and good volume.

        1. Hi Abhijit, I am sorry for late response. There is no comparison between two. We have already reviewed Infocus M260, it is certaily a stylish and good quality phone.

    1. There are many better performing devices than the one you said

      Lenovo Vibe K5 @ 6999 – 4G, 2GB RAM, 2750 mAh Battery, 13MP 5MP Camera, Octa Core Snapdragon processor
      Lenovo VIBE P1m @ 6999 – 4G, 2GB RAM, 3900 mAh Battery, 8MP 5MP Camera, Quad Core MediaTek Processor
      XOLO Era 4K @ 5999 – 4G, 2GB RAM, 4000 mAh Battery, 8MP 5MP Camera, Quad COre MediaTek Processor

      If you want in 5.5 inch screen,

      Micromax Canvas Play 4G @ 8300 Rupees is one good choice currently

      Andoid Lollipop OS, 5.5 inch HD screen with Gorilla Glass Protection, Snapdragon QC 4G Processor, 16GB Memory, 13MP Camera with CMOS Sensor and FHD Recording, and 2820 mAh Battery

      Budget 6000 Rupees: Xolo Era 4K
      Budget 7000 Rupees: Lenovo VIBE P1m
      Budget 8000 Rupees: Micromax Canvas Play 4G
      Budget 10000 Rupeees: Asus Max ( The Best – I am using this)

  10. To be honest even I liked asus max. It’s just that I wanted to try an indian make. I have used micromax before, so I thought why not iball. I think I wiil go for asus too, but what do you think of iball cobalt 5.5f youva as such? Would like to know your opinion.

    1. It looks an outdated device with a 1GHz processor. Its camera, too, is not that powerful. 8MP Primary camera is without a dedicated image sensor and it will not deliver great performance.
      Even in terms of built and design, this does not have a high appeal. I have also checked online – seems no one is interested in this.

      Indian maker isn’t thing that makes sense when these devices are manufactured in China. You should buy a “Made in India” phone not a Chinese phone from Indian maker.

  11. You are rt .. what I should be buying is made in india phone. And not a chinese phone from Indian maker. Well.. thanks for your advice! I have bought asus zenfone max, and it is beautiful!

    However I need another phone… any ideas?

  12. amar ur blog is very simple and understand easily thank u very much for writing this blog i wanna ask u one question?

    1. Thank you for appreciation. Your selection of Panasonic T44 is absolutely perfect. This is indeed a good smartphone. And a good competitor of this phone is Infocus M260.

  13. amar i wanna ask u according to u which is the best mobile panasonic t44 or infocus m260 i want ur suggestion thank you

  14. Hi amar ,
    Need to buy a secondry phone under 4000 …can u pls tell me how “Intex Aqua Raze” phone is..?? and if something better is there pls suggest..

    1. Hi Shalu, Consider one from these three.

      Panasonic T44 @ 3600 Rupees
      Infocus M260 @ 4000 Rupees
      XOLO ERA 1X – My pick @ 5000 Rupees

  15. Hi Amar… read ur blog, it’s very simple and easy to understand. Good job in that..!!

    However I wanna ask u a question? I already have a Samsung E7and want to buy a secondary phone as I am not allowed to use Camera phones in office and also for my rough use.

    I am actually planning to buy a mobile within 4000 range price and i want good battery backup and 4-4.5 inch and minimum 1 gb ram, good speed/less lag/ good performance and good volume. As per your earlier blogs I am thinking of in buying between Panasonic T44 or Infocus M260 or Lenovo A1000/2000. And when I checked the comments for these phone I was completely confused as many tell these are good, but many also tell that these are bad phones.

    So I am in dilemma, as which one to buy. Hence can u please suggest me 1 or 2 phones which is the best to buy among these or any other alternate options as well.

    1. Hi Vinod, all the said devices are the finest choices in 3500 Rupees budget. Pick one which is best-suited for your requirement. Do not take individuals comment that seriously. In fact, there are not many good phones to get confused. I think you should smartly decide between Panasonic and Infocus device.
