Pre­vi­ous­ly, the words “great smart­phone” meant “an A‑brand smart­phone with an exor­bi­tant price tag.” But times are chang­ing and today for a fifth of the cost of the iPhone 6s you can buy a pret­ty decent device with good stuff­ing. That is why below we will tell you about the 10 best smart­phones under 10,000 rubles.

For data stor­age, there is 8 GB of inter­nal mem­o­ry and a slot for microSD cards. For those who still can’t get used to the phablet trend, this is the best option.
