We have got an excellent phone in the form of Yu Yunique under 5,000 Rs. but if you don’t want to buy it for any reason, then it will be a good idea to stretch your budget upto Rs. 6,000 and go with the Xiaomi Redmi 2, Micromax Canvas Xpress 2 or the Moto E (2nd Gen), which are all good choices. It’s not like the Lenovo A2010 or the InFocus M2 4G are bad phones but, if you increase your budget by just Rs. 1,000 you can get much better phones with long life.
