I have been wanting to buy a good phone for a while now and chances are I will get some money in a few days form now. I have been trying to choose a good mobile at a decent rate. Anything between 7000 and 10,000 rupees would be alright. I would prefer Nokia, but Sony Ericsson is also acceptable. (No Korean Phones though 😀 )
Here are some models which I think are good. Take your pick and if you could reason as to why.
A very very good phone with good features and a mini USB port. Initially it cost about 12k. Today its available for less than 7k. Anything the trouble ? 2MP camera. Also, amazingly slim. Doesn’t have IR though. (Not that it is required)
Looks like there was a reason this phone’s price has been dropping. As Hari pointed out, the battery life is really bad. and I also heard that the phone gets heated pretty quickly.
Sony Ericsson W660
It’s got decent features and a 2MP camera, but no Infra Red.
Sony Ericsson K550I
Another decent phone with 2MP camera. The price is almost same as 6300
Sony Ericsson K750 I
Another 2MP camera. Very little difference between this model and the one on top. Again, a contender to 6300.
Sony Ericsson K 790I
Rs 9995/-(vasavi) Rs 9615/- (Univercell) Rs 9495/- (poorvika)
This is my personal choice. But, I don’t know if I will have 10k with me for sure. 😦 This has got stunning features for the price you pay. A 3.2 MP camera which works really well. (Vibushan has this btw)
After going through the comments, I am adding a few more models here:
Sony Ericsson 810I
Rs 12,795/- (vasavi) Rs 11346/- (Univercell) Rs 11495/- (poorvika)
If not for the 1k more than my budget, it blows the mind hole!!
*-All prices as per Vasavi mobiles. Univercell seems to be cheaper. I am sure there will be cheaper stores. You can suggest where to buy as well.
Prices seem to be cheaper in univercell and even more cheaper in Poorvika.
