    where did u get price of xperia duo?its not even officially announced yet.


    (September 28, 2011 - 10:15 am)

    LG Optimus One.. as mentioned by many in this post, is one of the best


    (September 22, 2011 - 11:00 pm)

    I know a guy who bought a brand new Samsung galaxy S2 at 26K from ebay. You just need to look through!


    (September 19, 2011 - 11:02 pm)

    Good analysis but where is the HTC Desire S. Only the old Desire is mentioned and Samsung galaxy S2 is costs around Rs.31,000/-. Where do you find it for Rs.27,500/-


    (September 19, 2011 - 10:13 pm)

    Please just dont mention 800MHz processor. Else people will assume that Fire XT and Defy are the same and some might pick Fire XT since it has GB and similar specs to Defy. This is completely misleading as the Defy pwns Fire XT.
    Please try to mention processor model or if you think people wont understand that then in words like the Fire XT processor is inferior and doesnt support flash etc… Also mention the GPU and screen resolution too.

    @manish…where did u get the price info of SE NEO V ??? is it available in the Indian market yet ?? (am not asking abt online shopping sites)


    (September 19, 2011 - 3:13 pm)

    Surprising to See the Arc and the Desire S missing in the above 20K list. Xperia Mini Pro is a good phone as well.

    The LG Optimus One with its recent gingerbread upgrade is a must have in the under 10K price bracket.


    (September 19, 2011 - 12:03 pm)

    se xperia ray @ rs 19,000 is also a good option..


    (September 19, 2011 - 10:09 am)

    Dear Manish ,
    From where I could get Samsung Galaxy S-2 in Rs 27500?????


    (September 19, 2011 - 9:15 am)

    LG optimus one should be there in sub 10 k category.


    (September 19, 2011 - 8:08 am)

    (September 19, 2011 - 7:52 am)

    why is SE xperia mini pro not in the list? it’s a fantastic phone available near 15k.


    (September 19, 2011 - 7:20 am)

    I prefer Huawei ideos X5. It’s features are brilliant. Price is around 13.5k.


    (September 18, 2011 - 10:04 pm)

    Spice Mi-410 is a good choice if u aren’t bothered about branding… U can find one at for Rs. 12,999… It has got decent specs, but the quality of after sale service is not good yet…
