We at PriceBaba.com keep checking our analytics to know what our users are searching for. This gives us better knowledge of the popular devices and market trends. But what we also realised is that a lot of people are browsing for, what we infer to be, mediocre devices; devices that makes no sense to purchase as there are much better ones out there. Below are some phones from the most viewed handsets that are trending on PriceBaba.com and suitable alternatives that you could buy instead of them. We’ve compared key features of the model in question and its prime alternative, to give you enough reasons to go for the better option.
Sony Xperia E3
Sony prices their products at a premium. For e.g, their new flagships, the Xperia Z3 and Z3 Compact costs more than the high end phones from its competitors. Sony themselves have admitted that they’re not interested in making phones under Rs. 10,000. As a result, the Xperia E3 loses on many grounds when compared to the stiff competition in this segment. For the same price, the Asus Zenfone 5 is better in almost every way.

|Processor||1.2GHz, Quad Core||1.6GHz, Dual Core|
|Rear Camera||5 Megapixel||8 Megapixel|
|Front Camera||VGA||2 Megapixel|
Samsung Galaxy Core Prime
The Samsung Galaxy Core Prime is probably the ONLY Samsung phone under Rs. 10,000 that you should buy, if you’re hell bent on getting a Samsung phone. But before that, have a look at its comparison to the Yu Yureka.

Samsung Galaxy S Duos 3
It’s high time that Samsung revamps the S Duos series. All the S Duos phones had terrible specs and now with the Huawei Honor Holly available for the same price, it’s a no brainer as to which one you should opt for.
