Philips: Philips LED bulbs are really most expensive in market because this brand don’t do any compromise in terms of quality. All Philips LED bulbs above 7 watt are efficient in terms of power factor and CRI. Philips is No.1 Brand in India so they need to improve lots in terms of lumens/watt according to price range of product. Philips LED Bulbs with lowers watt (4watt and below) have too much low power factor however it is not necessary in lower wattage. Philips provides 15000 hours of LED chip life which in average quality range.

Havells: As a reputed brand, Havells has not strong quality LED bulb portfolio. For 3watt and 15watt, Havells has best quality bulbs. In middle range (5 watt, 7watt, 10watt), Havells still need lots of improvement because this LED bulbs are most demandable in retail market. Only Havells Adore 15watt has 100 lumens per watt (good output). Havells can make LED Bulb’s portfolio strong by improving middle range.
Worth Buy : Havells Adore 15watt LED Bulb
Osram: 100 years of old and most innovative company Osram has best power factor range in Superstar Classic A LED bulb series. Lumens per watt in higher watt models is also above good level. Osram has huge range of warm white LED bulbs. Osram is only a brand among the biggest players who provides dimmable LED bulbs.
Worth Buy : Osram Superstar Classic A 11 Watt LED Bulb
Eveready: This the only brand who is labeling 100 lumens/watt in each of its LED bulbs. You should buy Eveready LED bulbs above 9watt because below 9watt LED lamps has lowest power factor (i.e. 0.5).

Oreva: Oreva has two series in LED bulbs (I) ECO Series (II) DX Series. Due to lack of data like CRI, power factor it is not possible to predict about the quality of product.
Bajaj: Bajaj LEDZ 5 watt and 7 watt LED bulbs are total OEM products. Price range is very low so not so bad in this budget.
SYSKA: New emerging LED brand SYSKA has two series in LED bulb (I)SSK-LB Series and (II) SSK-QA. SYSKA is also doing OEM just like Bajaj but it provides high power factor and CRI. Although price is higher, lumens per watt is still lower in all LED bulbs of SYSKA.
Charlston: Charlston is small brand but it provides unique designed LED bulbs with 5 year warranty that no one is providing right now in India. The GlowUp LED bulbs comes in two variant 5watt and 9watt. Both have high lumens per watt, power factor and CRI rating. This small brand can really give easy competition to big players like Philips, Osram and Havells. Charlston GlowUp LED bulbs are dimmable like Osram and has 50,000 hours of life (best life span on LED Bulb category).
Worth Buy: Both Charlston GlowUp LED bulbs 5watt and 9watt are worth to buy.
Moserbaer: Only two LED bulb of 5watt and 7 watt are present in its portfolio. CRI, power factor and LED chip life is very impressive but Moserbaer LED bulbs can not satisfy lumens need of customer due to lower lumens per watt.
Surya: When it comes to lighting, Surya is an also reputed Indian brands for decades. Surya has also started manufacturing LED bulbs. It is making economical and royal series.
