    Desire 700—33500 .
    Whoever buys this is an idiot. Galaxy s4 mini ( 22k) which is 4.3 inches same qhd with 1900 mah battery with 1.5 gb ram runs 97% of all games in android market. Htc is in a flop route.

    Even if Moto G comes to India at ?15 K, I see no reason anyone should buy these phones. It is better in almost every thing.
