Next on the list is the Samsung Galaxy S4 and the Samsung Galaxy S5. Both smartphones are pretty outdated, but made available for dirt cheap. For Rs 11,990, the Galaxy S4 gives you a 5-inch full HD display, Android 4.4.2 (Jelly Bean), which is upgradable to Android 5.0 Lollipop. It offers a 13-megapixel rear camera and 2-megapixel front facing unit, Exynos 5410 octa-core processor paired with 2GB of RAM and 16GB onboard storage. Although it sounds pretty decent, one could look for the Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 and Lenovo K4 Note among others, which come with the latest hardware and operating system.
The Galaxy S5, on the other hand, is also available at an attractive cost of Rs 15,999. For this price, you get a good smartphone with 5-inch full HD (1080p) super AMOLED display, Samsung’s octa-core processor and 2GB of RAM.

It also includes an IR Blaster that lets you control your TV and other audio-visual equipment, a heart rate monitor and is also IP67 certified for water and dust resistance. The Galaxy S5 may be a two-year-old smartphone, but the hardware and features could be perfect for those who can’t spend a bomb for a flagship device, but can still have it.
Flipkart is also offering a good deal on the Samsung Galaxy Note 4. With Rs 7,000 off, the price has been dropped down to Rs 29,990. For this price, you get an Android smartphone with a 5.7-inch Super AMOLED QHD display, premium metal frame and faux leather back, a 2.7GHz quad-core processor, 16-megapxiel rear camera and 3.7-megapixel front facing unit. The smartphone runs on Android 5.0 Lollipop and an upgrade for Marshmallow 6.0 is already rolling out.
It also features a heart rate sensor, a fingerprint scanner and 3,220mAh battery with Quick Charge 2.0 support. It may not get any future software updates after Marshmallow, but for the price of Rs 29,990, the Galaxy Note 4 makes for an awesome deal. It also features the S-Pen stylus that quickly lets you take notes and doodle stuff. There are other smartphones such as the Moto X Style, Apple iPhone 5s (32GB), Nexus 5X (16GB) and LG G4, but if we purely look from the specifications and features point of view, the Galaxy Note 4 seems like a better deal.
