This year at International Consumer Electronics Show (CES 2015) we saw 5G enabled Wi-Fi chipsets and SoCs, so we can expect some gadgets with lightening fast internet possibilities this year. But we will have to agree to the fact that India is way behind the rest of the world when it comes to technology innovations. So, when the world around us will be seeing more of 5G enabled devices, we will be struggling with 4G. Keeping this in mind, here are a few affordable devices which are available in India for a price tag of less than Rs. 10,000.

3. Xiaomi Redmi Note 4G

This device is for the people who love using a phone with a large display, which packs good hardware and performs good enough to carry their day-to-day tasks. Xiaomi Redmi Note 4G comes with a huge 5.5-inch IPS HD display with 720p screen, which seemed to be not that great and would not be sufficient to suffice your multimedia needs.
