Check out these best smartphone within Rs 30000
Gionee Elife E7 is a very good smartphone with high end specifications at a very low price. Moto X is a smartphone which is complete in each and every ways. Do not get disheartened by the dual core processor factor. It is a fully optimized smartphone without any lags and other issues with very good battery backup. You can read the full review of Moto X.
Considering the specifications & pricing we can see that Xiaomi MI3 is priced half of Google Nexus 5 but offering nearly same flagship configuration. The only concern is the after sales service as I am not sure about the service center of Xiaomi in India. If it plans to setup its service centers in India with such aggressive pricing I am sure its going to give a hard time to the other smartphone sellers.
UPDATE : 15th July : XIAOMI India just announced its list of service-centers-india . Go get your beast
