    If you can add Rs. 500 somehow then get a 5130 XpressMusic.

    Or if you don't mind charging battery DAILY (not too good if you listen to lot of music) then get a 7210 Supernova which *might* fit into your budget.

    But best is to wait for Nokia 2700 Classic which would come for 4K.

    Nokia 5130 express music is around 5.2k, its a good music phone.
    Value for money

    Surely you can go for 5130 or have a look on slimy 7210.

    If its for your sister then get 7210 , nice looking phone and girls do love it . Should be just shy above 5k(~5100) . Perfect for your requirment.

    I am not sure but i think se w305i is well below 5k now . That phone have killer looks and design , you might consider it .


    5130 is great phone feature wise but rarely value feature over looks , that why i recommended those phone.

    Cost ?
    And does it have dedicated music keys ?
    Also, I don't like samsung's OSes much compared to nokia and SE OSes.

    Two reasons, why I won't buy Samsung: OS and phone design.
    The OS seems primitive in comparison to the OS of Nokia and SE. The design of the phones aren't great either, who needs a big-ass Samsung logo in the front?

    my dad has samsung guru 1410. awesome keypad but simply pathetic os and the keys for different characters are not same as other phones.

    samsung has always had this issue of being the odd one out.
