Update: LG G8X is back in stock in Flipkart for Rs 27,990.

The last few weeks has been pretty busy for the Indian smartphone market. We saw almost every brand launching its smartphones during the month of October and the second half of the October was when e-commerce offers and sale commenced. 

During the sale on Amazon and Flipkart, there were a lot of discounts and offers on multiple smartphones ranging from budget phones to flagship smartphones. This weekend (November 13) both the Amazon Great India Festival Sale and the Flipkart Big Diwali sale will conclude. 

For those who missed the deals during the earlier sales, this is the last chance to grab a new smartphone at a great price and with multiple banks offers going around, this is the best time of the year to grab a new phone. 

There are offers on multiple smartphones as said earlier which will make the task quite harder as a buyer. In this list, we have tried to eliminate the same with compiling the top 10 smartphones offers that's worth considering in the last wave of the festive season. 

The list mostly contains the phones which are launched recently. Also, we've included phones that offer additional discount or have reviewed price cut for a limited time rather including the ones with common offers on Flipkart or Amazon. You can also have a look at all the best smartphones offers on Flipkart
