Amazon Great Indian sale 2018: Best deals on mobile phones


Amazon Great Indian Sale has begun with some alluring discount and offers on a wide range of product categories. Although it's upsetting to see that the smartphone category has been kept void of good discounts, there are still a few value for money deals you can consider. 

We were expecting discounts on more phones in the mid-range segment, but most offers are on phones that are either more than a year old or under Rs 20,000.  Still, we hunted for some deals that can turnout a good buy for our readers.
