According to PTA statistics, around 32 million or 30 percent of the total internet users browse internet through their smartphones. Last year the number of users were around 14 million, an increase of 123 percent in less than a year.
The demand is rising on a massive scale and to cope with it, mobile manufacturers have started producing smartphones that cater to all segments of the population.
As a majority of the mobile users in Pakistan buy used or brand new smartphones that are available between Rs. 5,000 & Rs. 10,000, we selected some of the finest (brand new) smartphones you can buy in this price range.
Our selection of Best Smartphones Prices in Pakistan is listed below.
Gfive Gpower 5
The smartphone Gpower 5 by Gfive is available for a decent price of Rs. 9000. Apart from the 5-inch wide screen, the smartphone differentiates itself from other brands through its enhanced storage capacity of 16GB and RAM capacity of 2GB, both are rarely available in this price range. Gpower 5 has a 1.3GHz Quad-Core processor as well.
On the downside, the brand is mostly known for manufacturing smartphones for the middle strata of the market. So most of the Smartphones in Pakistan by this manufacturer are affordable.
QMobile X700 Pro
QMobile X700 Pro smartphone has 16GB internal storage, 2GB RAM & 1.3 GHz Quad-core processor, similar to the Gfive Gpower 5 smartphone and is available for a price of Rs. 9,200 in Pakistan. The QMobile X700 pro is built for middle-class that needs efficient smartphones on a budget. With a 5-megapixel back & 2-megapixel front camera, you can capture moments with ease without overspending.
Moreover, as this smartphone has a 2GB RAM and Android 6.0 (Marshmallow) firmware, you can easily play the latest games available on android.
QMobile Titan X700i
QMobile Titan X700i is an older version of the Titan Series by QMobile. This smartphone was released in September 2015, while the X700 Pro was released in January 2016.
Technically speaking there is nothing that makes it any different from QMobile X700 Pro except for a downgraded firmware. Where QMobile X700 Pro has 6.0 Marshmallow, Qmobile Titan X700i has Android 5.0 (Lollipop) in it.
It should be noted that Qmobile X700 Pro is the latest version available in this price range so if you buy this smartphone, you may experience a low resale value because of the presence of an upgraded version in the market.
Rivo Phantom PZ4
Phantom PZ4 is a budget smartphone by Rivo brand. The phone was released this year in August with a starting price of 9,400 rupees, as is seen on online shopping stores. The phone has 2GB RAM and 8GB Storage capacity, which is smaller than most other smartphones in the same price range.
Nonetheless, the storage problem with Rivo Phantom PZ4 is minute, because the manufacturer has provided external storage (of up to 32GB) in the smartphone.
QMobile Noir S1
QMobile Noir S1 has 1GB RAM, 8GB External Storage, 1.3GHz Quad-Core processor and Android Version 5.0 (Lollipop). The fact that gives it an edge over other smartphones in our list is that it has both front & back cameras of 5-megapixel.
However, the black beauty also carries a dark patch. Its battery is only 2000 mAh whereas all other smartphones have 2200 mAh battery. If translated to talk time, this smartphone offers almost two hours additional backup than other smartphones and 3-5 hours of idle time.
The best 5 smartphones are available between Rs 5,000 & Rs 10,000 that are Gfive Gpower 5, QMobile X700 Pro, QMobile Titan X700i, Rivo Phantom PZ4 and QMobile Noir S1. There are other smartphones available in the same price range, but we chose these because of their better processor and improved storage capacity. These parameters cannot be found in most other smartphones available in the market, given this price range.
While buying a smartphone, two things should be kept in mind. First is the resale value i.e. at what price will it be sold if you keep it in a good condition. The name of brand & the quality of product matters a lot, especially when the smartphone specs are changing on a rapid scale.
Second is the support for the latest software. Most smartphones that are available with 2GB RAM and 1.3GHz processor can run a majority of the apps. Therefore these are a good choice for price-conscious buyers, who are looking to buy smartphones that they can keep for a year or two.
