The Lenovo Z2 Plus
is a heavily underpriced phone and if you take a look at the specs, I'm sure you'll feel the same way. The Z2 Plus packs the ex-flagship Snapdragon 820, which is still one of the most powerful smartphone processors available. The beefy processor comes equipped with 3/4 GB RAM and 32/64 GB storage, which makes sure that the phone flies through everyday use. The Z2 plus also sports a gorgeous 5" display at Full-HD resolution.

LeEco and Coolpad collaborated to bring us the CoolPad Cool1 and it really turned out to be a Cool One(pun wholeheartedly intended). The Cool 1 implements one of the most powerful budget processors from Qualcomm i.e., the Snapdragon 652. The 652 coupled with 3/4 GB RAM just handles everything with ease. Everyday use is a breeze and the chipset can even handle a few of the heavy games, however, it gets a bit on the hotter side. Apart from powerful specs, the Cool 1 also sports dual camera setup which lets you take high-quality images with DSLR-type Bokeh effect. The only drawback that the device has is a pretty unstable and clunky UI, so if you are buying the smartphone for an exceptional user interface then you better look elsewhere, if not, then the Cool 1 is one of the best phones to buy under 15,000.
