Personally i think Asus Zenphone 5 is the best smartphone below Rs 10,000. It has a very powerful processor and a very stylish design. Its 5 on 5 for Asus Zenphone 5.
Moto E is also a great budget phone from Motorola. It is simple yet powerful one.
These are my two personal favorites and i would suggest to choose between them.
