4. Intex Aqua R3intex aqua r3

The Aqua V4 from Intex might not be the best and the cheapest Android KitKat phone, but it definitely worth its price tag. It runs on a 1 GHz single-core chipset and has 256 MB of RAM to run its Android KitKat 4.4.2 OS. The only thing that might discourage some from buying this phones is its feeble 1400 mAh battery.

6. Lava Iris 310 Stylecheapest android phones in india

Iris 310 Style also runs on a dual-core 1.3 GHz processor with Android 4.4 KitKat on top. The main USP of this phone is its 2GB ROM. In case you didn’t notice, many of the phones listed above only have 256MB of internal memory which gets filled up in time. Android KitKat puts some restrictions on the amount of data that apps can keep on the SD card, hence it is very important to have good internal memory.

PS : The prices mentioned were at the time of writing of this post on Flipkart, eBay and Snapdeal. Current day prices might vary. Some of the phones might be out of stock as these were launched few months back. This should be a helpful guide about what to expect at what price points and nothing beyond.

PPS : A bit about the term ‘cheapest’. Cheap here means the cost and nothing else. An euphemistic term like ‘cost-effective’ would do the trick. That would be two words in place of one word. Besides who are we really offending here?
