I would suggest you to go with Coolpad Note 3 for better quality of a camera and its result that comes with 13MP. This mobile phone cost around Rs 9,000 only though.

You may check other 13MP camera phones compare to Coolpad Note 3 and then decide it. My friend is using this one and got the best result for all like taking picture and video then posting them in a blog, instagram, twitter, FB and so on. It has fine editing option and 'pro' option which helps as an addition one.
