Top five Android smartphones in India that give maximum value for money.
Google Android, conceived by Andy Rubin and Rich Miner, has really taken the world by surprise. In just a couple of years, it has surpassed the sales of Symbian and Windows Mobile phones.
Today there is an Android model in almost every level of smartphone in the market--be it a basic smartphone or the most complex one available. Here we have the top five Android phones currently available in India at less than Rs 10,000.
Micromax Andro A60 (Rs 6,800) (Android V2.1)
Its shape, which is thick at the top and slimmer at the bottom, is easy to grip. Hardware consists of a 600 MHz processor and 150 MB of internal storage or RAM.
Dell XCD 28 (Rs 7,500) (Android V2.1)
Dell XCD 28 is the second most pocket friendly Android phone available in India. One reason to buy this phone is for its dedicated graphics engine.
Other features include a standard 2.8 inch resistive touchscreen, 256 MB each of RAM and ROM, and 200 MB of internal storage.
Spice MI 310 (Rs 9,000) (Android V2.2)
This is the only phone that features big surprises at a low price point. It has a big 3.2 inch display with a sufficiently high resolution of 320 x 480 pixels. And it features an optical trackpad, something that is otherwise unavailable for less than Rs 10,000.
Another highlight of this phone is the inclusion of Froyo or Android 2.2, which is welcome at this price.
Samsung Galaxy 5 (Rs 9,300) (Android V2.1)
Before Spice MI 310 came into the picture, Samsung Galaxy 5 was the only smartphone with a capacitive touchscreen. The phone has a 600 MHz processor along with 170 MB of internal memory or RAM, a 2 mega pixel camera and HSPA capabilities, along with Wifi and Bluetooth connectivity.
The device has a 16 GB memory card slot. However, it is advisable to use at most an 8 GB card for smoother operation.
Finally Optimus One -- which made its way to the top five list by a very slim margin. Featuring Android V2.2 (upgradable to 2.3), Optimus One stands tall among the phones in the list, with the only competitor being the less famous Spice MI 310.
Hardware remains standard in this device, which has a 600 MHz processor, but it also has a dedicated graphics engine, similar to Dell XCD28.
Faster performance is expected as Optimus One features 512 MB of RAM and supports up to 32 GB of card memory. But with all other hardware constant, the more storage is added, that much slower does performance get. Unlike the Spice phone, Optimus One features a 3.2 inch display, but it is a resistive screen.
The F1 Plus FC Barcelona Edition comes in blue-and-red color combination, and has an 18K gold plated FC Barcelona emblem on the back panel.
Xiaomi Mi 5, which was launched in India in April this year, is available for Rs 24,999 for the 3GB RAM/32GB storage variant.
Xiaomi Redmi 3A has a 5-inch HD display with 720 x 1280 pixels resolution.
Infocus S1 runs on recently announced TencentOS 2.0 (a.k.a TOS 2.0) which is based on Android 6.0 Marshmallow operating system.
Both the smartphones come with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage.
Two versions of Samsung J3 with model number SM-J3119 and SM-J3110 have been spotted on TENAA.
Recently, OnePlus 3 was found listed on TENAA.
Zenfone 3 comes with a glass body while the other two phones have metal unibodies.
As of now, Yu has not revealed the features and specifications on its flagship smartphone.
18 devices were launched this week including couple of tablets.
