Advice needed: Best midrange Android ICS phone with 4.3 Inch+ Screen < 24K price


Broken In
Hi friends, please help me in buying an Android Smart phone with a maximum budget of 24K.

Minimum Requirements:

a) 4.3 Inch Display (Minimum)
b) ICS 4.0
c) Dual Core
d) Front Camera (Required - Minimum VGA)
e) Rear Camera (Required - minimum 5MP)
f) RAM 1GB (if not 768MB)
g) Decent Battery life

Average Daily Usage Pattern:

Email Client / Whatsapp / Skype / Fring / Facebook – connected 24/7 in background
1 to 2 hours of regular phone calls each day
1 to 2 hours of voice calls in Fring / Skype each day
Not a heavy game user, but word with friends / chess in background

Short listed phones:

a) Motorola Atrix 2 - (Approximately 21K)
b) LG optimus L9 (Releasing shortly & expected to be 23K)
c) Huawei Ascend G600 (Releasing during Diwali festival & expected to be 17K)

Are there any other phone choices below 24K? Sony Xperia P (@ 24K) & Xolo X900 (@ 18K) are excellent phones but screen size is limited to 4 Inch 

As of now, I am ready to wait another month & buy LG optimus L9. Do LG phones have good service support in India? Is there any other choice of phones ?

Xperia S is already selling for 26k. Wait and try raising your budget by 1k more as by Diwali price is bound to fall to 25k level.


Xperia S is really a very good option.
Otherwise if you can find HTC Sensation, then it is a good phone for 22k.Or Xperia P is good too for 22k

Thanks for your suggestions. But, as of now, i cannot find Xperia S for 26K. The local resellers quote a price of 27400/-. I hope Diwali cut the price down. Friends, what is your opinion on LG L9 ?. Is it a good phone?. It might be available in India in first week of October.


In the zone
LG phones are not that good and also lg doesnt have good after sale services....well Galaxy S2 is available easily around 25k now...if u can increase then Xperia S is also a good option:)

Hi all, thanks for the advices & support. Finally i have managed to extend my budget & finalized on SGS3. Recent price drop to 34,990 was tempting enough to extend the budget. I've some queries on S3, will post them in a new thread. Thanks once again for everyone's support.

Would recommend an Xperia S

I like Xperia S & it is really an awesome phone. The price with the local dealer is also fair @ 26,500. But, i have ended up ordering 2 leather cases for SGS3, along with Spigen Screen protector. Will buy the phone as sooner one of the case arrive first.
