Nokia E5

nokia e5 side

Status: Widely available

Price: 9.2k-9.7k INR

Product page: http://www.nokia.co.in/find-products/products/nokia-e5

S60 on E5 is very much usable and this phone is simply the best qwerty device that you can get for budget inside 10k rupees.


LG Optimus One

LG optimus one

Status: Available at many stores

Price: Around 9k-9.7k INR

Product page: http://www.lg.com/in/mobile-phones/all-phones/LG-smart-phones-P500.jsp

Who should buy:

This, without a doubt is the best smartphone you can get inside 10k. LG has released Optimus Net to replace Optimus One. But I hardly find it better than Optimus One and give the vast amount of ROMs that O1 has, it is better to stick to O1 for now. If you are not bothered about battery life, go and get this one. If you are, then go get this one along with an extra battery. And btw, forget about LG’s past reputation. They nailed it with this one.

This brings us to an end to sub-10k market segment. Here is a short list of other worthy sub 10k smartphones:

  1. LG Optimus Net (successor to Optimus One)
  2. Spice Mi-310 (http://www.spiceglobal.com/SpiceMobiles/Model.aspx?id=187)
  3. Nokia c5-03(http://www.nokia.co.in/find-products/products/nokia-c5-03)

  6. Price
  7. Digital Compass

The Bad:

  1. No video calling
  2. average battery life
  3. Okayish display
  4. Weak CPU

Who should buy this phone:

Highly recommended if you are on a very tight budget but need a HTC device. I would pick LG Optimus One over this one (for 1.5k-2k less) as it is slightly better phone on paper but many new users prefer SenseUI over vanilla UI.

E6, with Symbian Anna OS is a pleasure to use. If you are looking for a business class phone with monster battery life and if you want a phone that can navigate you to through those unknown route and take care of your corporate data (emails, documents etc), go for this device. You can’t get a better device for the price.

Sony Ericsson Xperia Neo V

Status: Available in the market

Price: 17,300 INR

Who should buy this phone:

Who should buy this phone:

Like previous midrange Symbian devices, Nokia 701 is one heck of a multimedia device. If you are not among those who install a dozen new apps every day, this one will keep you more than happy. I would recommend this phone and the Xperia Neo V to those with budget under 20k as these two are way ahead of others at this price point w.r.t features and bang for buck.

  1. no memory expansion
  2. no Bluetooth 3.0 or USB 3.0
  3. Okayish camera and poor video recording quality
  4. average audio quality
  5. Zune client necessary for transfer of media etc

Who should buy this phone:

If you are looking a for a phone that comes with a fresh looking OS and works out of the box and not interested in doing modding etc, not interested in spending time killing apps to make the UI lag-free, this one is for you. Windows Phone 7.5 is excellent right now and the Windows Phone application store is getting crowded. A minority OS right now but has potential to take the market in coming years.

  2. Pentile matrix panel is not something that should be put on a 33k flagship devices

Who should buy this phone:

If you are one of those with big palm and can use a phone with a 5″+ display, get this one for it won’t disappoint you. It is everything that SGS II is and has bit more tricks up it’s sleeve. The included S Pen means that you can have lot of fun with drawing etc (hope there will be apps making full use of these Styluses).

    • Thanks for bringing this up.

      yes. many are reporting battery issues and it seems like the dialer is consuming too much battery. btw, found this interesting response from HTC in one of XDA threads:

      To also help with Battery Life you can do these steps exactly: 1) Turn your device ON and Charge the device for 8 hours or more 2) Unplug the device and Turn the phone OFF and charge for 1 hour 3) Unplug the device Turn ON wait 2 minutes and Turn OFF and charge for another hour Your battery life should almost double, we have tested this on our devices and other agents have seen a major difference as well.

      looking at the seriousness of the battery issue, let me make quick changes to the battery point.
