Well, if you think the iPhone 5 and the Samsung Galaxy SIII are the only two enjoying the limelight, think once again. A good number of ‘not so popular’ phone manufacturers seem to be sweating it all out to offer customers the best smartphone experience at less than half the price. Obviously, it won’t be wise to compare them all with the iPhone, but they surely deserve to be your next pick. So, if you are still using that old bulky mobile with a rock-hard keypad and desire to move your fingers across a touchscreen, here are a few good ones just for you.
Lava Iris 501
Though a brand new entrant in the Smarphone Arena, Lava for quite a while now has been producing some fabulous mobiles, all pumped up with some amazing features. Its latest creation to launch in India is the Iris 501. Loaded with the Android ICS, the phone has a massive 5-inch TFT LCD display with 800 x 400 resolution. Other features include a 1 GHz processor, 5 MP auto-focus primary camera, 0.3 MP front facing camera and yes a dual-SIM slot. No doubt, the screen resolution might not be the best, but, as a whole, this new gadget from Lava surely has a lot in store for you. At something around Rs.10,000 bucks, this one seems to be a decent deal.
Spice Stellar Xtacy Mi-352
For something less expensive, you may want to opt for the Xtacy Mi-352 priced at just Rs. 7000 (approximately). Preloaded with Android 2.3, this one too is a Dual SIM smartphone. Powered by a 1 GHz Snapdragon processor, it has an internal memory of 512 MB which can be expanded up to 16 GB. A 1300mAh battery promises you a decent talk time. Well, Spice should have gone for a better camera and the latest version of the operating system, but then at a budget price, this is all Spice can offer.
