    Extremely well done post Chetan. You have mentioned almost all the best android phones available in india below Rs.5000. Micromax, Karbonn, iBall, Intex mobile phones are becoming very popular in India. If budget is not a big constraint, then maybe Moto E can be another good option for Rs.6999/-
