Bad to the bone
i am also considering buying an Android based Phone but my budget is only 16k (can't stretch anymore)..so i guess i can only afford the i5801 Galaxy 3?is it worth buying? i mean i am not really into apps or modding a phone..i basically want a phone with great multimedia features, superb audio quality & a decent touchscreen.i can also afford the xperia x10 mini & mini pro but they only have a 2.5'' screen.will that be a disadvantage as i've read that some apps do not run in smaller res. so should i buy any other phone with a different OS instead of android, as i may not be using all the features it has to offer?
No. 1 suggestion: Do not buy HTC Wildfire or x10 mini.
These two phones are an attack to sanity. I have seen a 240 × 320 (Wildfire) and I know how bad it looks. X10 mini is too tiny & you will die scrolling left to right. Considering the choice the best bet remains Galaxy 3. Though this phone too has a lower resolution (240 × 320) but it is at least better than Wildfire. 3.2" (Galaxy 3) display is not bad for day to day use.
IMO buy Galaxy 3; it fits your expectation list.
