No Point in buying a phone with 4 GB Storage if gaming is the main requirement .
I Love my L9 based on same chipset but that 4 GB internal Storage is a Pain in the As* .
Unless one roots the phone there is no solution whatso ever .

Get a Galaxy S Advance with 16 GB inbuilt storage or an Xperia S/SL with 32 GB storage .
Even Xperia L and SP are miser with storage :(
 
Maybe it supports default storage location of Apps to SD storage...like most Chinese brands..Thats usually the case with phones having pure Stock Android OS. My friend has iBall phone which could store games on SD while my Xperia SP could not.. it was kinda embarrasing. :( Even Lava phones, like Xolo 800 supports Apps to SD

@quagmire-- i am really eyeing this phone. I wanna go back to Amoled display. I used a Galaxy S2 years ago, and amazingly , liked it more than my Xperia SP's LCD display. Trust me, i calibrated its screen to make the default yellowish white look more blueish just for the AMoled effect :)
I am sick of the grey blacks on modern phones, every phone should go AMOLED, over saturation is not an issue for me.
What worries me is the aging Soc. That tiOMAP CPU and the SGX540 GPU is so 2010 technology :(

Allllright !
^True S-Amoled is as good any other display in the market. CNET itself declared display on Note 2 is just as good as that on iPhone 5, but after calibration.

OMAP 4460 is quite old now. JB 4.2 should restore some life to this phone now.

If the price falls to around 10k, it will be VFM for a light user.

I think Rs12k is already a very VFM deal..Below Rs 10k will be over demanding on our part. Moreover, its a very reliable tried and tested Soc, and IMO Huawei is the best Chinese brand in the world. So Rs 12k is reallly good price. After all it launched in the USA ( and competed with Galaxy S2 on Verizon and Sprint. A Galaxy S2 competitor for Rs12k..not bad huh?

Custom MODs and all are available...they are quiet doable. The Jellybean 4.1.2 officially is the latest available for it. Its EmotionUI got updated to 1.5 too.

I think Huawei Ascend P1 LTE HUAWEI ASCEND P1 LTE (4G) Faster Smartphone | Cloud Plus, - Android 4.0 Ice cream Sandwich not yet released but is worth considering if listed round 13K because Huawei is realsing JellyBean update for Ascend P1 Emotion UI 1.5 with JellyBean 4.1 ready for upgrade for Huawei Ascend P1 - Android Forums at AndroidCentral.com
It's not the P1 LTE, but the regular P1 without LTE, but HSPA+ @21mbps support.
I bought it, as it appeared VFM to me at 12.5K, and this device looks promising, though I found the bundled accessories (the headset) a bit let down. Will be putting my review of this device in a few days.
