Right off the assembly line
you can check out the following:
1. SE live with walkman: Its below 15K
2. Motorola Defy Plus
3. SE Xperia U: Non expandable memory
4. Samsung Galaxy Ace/Plus: I own it and its good. Screen is HVGA but good enough for normal use.

I suggest you walk into some store like Croma, etc and check out all the options. Get a feel of the cell, use it for sometime and then decide.



Just increase your budget a lil bit by just 1-2k, then you will have very good options like Neo V, One V, Desire S.Among which One V is the best option and if secondary camera is necessary then go fot Neo V or Desire S
Or if you strictly want a phone within 15k then you can get Sony Live With Walkman for 12.5-13k

its not for me ... its for my friend...
SE LWW is a good option ...
what abt SE xperia mini pro???
and is it true that sony's service is bad in india and is its build quality bad???


Retired Forum Mod
^^ 3" with QWERTY. err, why not check Motorola Defy+? it has bigger screen.

Xperia Mini build quality is good but looks fragile.


Ambassador of Buzz
i suggested defy plus too.. but that guy want a samsung galaxy ace plus which according to me is not worth the money...

how about moto fire xt???


I won't suggest Def+ as its screen is not that good and also Motorola is just vanishing from the Indian market, the have closed many of their service centers and all the moto stores.
