It is surprisingly hard to find the right device in the mid range. Here's where you can discover the one that's right for you.
Not all of us are bestowed with a lot of wealth, though we all desire to possess the best. While that is not possible in a limited budget, the mid range is the balance most of us look at to fulfill our desires within the constraints.
Surprisingly, the range between Rs 14,000 to Rs 20,000 has fewer devices than the high and budget ranges do, and it is dominated by old launches that have shed price. In the fast changing market this most often means an out dated phone. Here are some mid range devices you can safely pickup in this range and remain on top of the tech curve.
HTC Windows Phone 8S is the latest that you can get right now if you are a Windows Phone OS fan. This mid range smartphone comes with a 4 inch LCD display supporting 800 x 480 pixel resolution natively. The device weighs about 113 grams and is 10.28 mm thick. It houses a dual core 1 GHz Qualcomm S4 MSM8227 mobile processor and packs 512 MB RAM.
This smartphone offers only 4 GB on board storage, some part of which is reserved for the system. Thankfully, there is a memory card slot that supports up to a 32 GB micro SD card.
At the back of the HTC 8S rests a 5 megapixel autofocus camera with LED flash, which is capable of recording 720p HD videos. There is no front facing camera. HTC has integrated Beats Audio sound enhancement for better quality audio and has packed a 1700 mAh battery, altogether for Rs 19,260, which makes it a great deal over-all.
