Is HTC wildfire S available for 12k ?. Does it have issue relating to battery ? and also is it's after sales support good enough ?
Letsbuy , ebay & other retail sites are quoting it at 14K.
PS : I didn't like the UI of LG 01 at all :(
Budget : till 15 K max

Get the HTC desire online (not sure if the offer is still on...... AndroidFan?)
else get the Moto DEFY. Stay away from galaxy ace, Defy and desire are far superior.
O1 is best android phone for upto 13k budget

I wont suggest a Motorolla Android phone as the boot loader is locked and so you wont be able to install a Custom ROM

It costs around 13-13.5k.
HTC's after sales support is quite good though you won't need it as there are very less chances that a HTC handset will have a problem(specially in 1yr).
And battery back up is fine.

1) HTC desire is above my budget . In one of the post I saw Sam mentioning the price of HTC wildfire S to be 12k.
Thread link : LINK

2) Does HTC has issues with battery and after sales service .
Yesterday I had gone to Mobile store , they told me they no longer stock HTC models because of the same. I got similar response from other retail outlets.

3) I didn't like LG 01 UI . Touch screen response is bit sluggish.

4) Given a choice between wildfire S , Defy & Ace , which one should I go for ?. If there is any good models for a budget 0f 15K , please let me know about the same.

EDIT :
Thanks for the replies guys :)

When I tried to add HTC Desire to cart, it said "Out of Stock"... maybe it will come back in a few days on Saholic.com

One last question

1. Wildfire S is slightly expensive right now (14k)... Give it a few months and the price will come down...

2. Old HTC mobiles had poor batteries. But the problem has been solved in newer models.

3. You can always change the launcher. There are plenty of options... Go Launcher Ex, Launcher Pro, ADW Launcher, Modaco Gingerbread launcher (I use it), Xperia Arc launcher, etc and tons of themes to chose from...

4. Among those three phones, I would choose Motorola Defy (comes around 14.5k after discount RCOMLB1 on Letsbuy)

Another option is the new Spice Mi-410. -- Spice Mi-410 | Spice Mobile Phones | Saholic.com

a) 4.1 inch
b) WVGA (800x480) resolution
c) 5 MP camera with flash + front-facing camera
d) Stock Android 2.2
e) 512 MB RAM, 2 GB ROM
f) 1400 mAh battery

Comes to RS 13300 after discount (SAHOLIC1500)

@ ssb1551 & SAM
I got it for 14.5k from Reliance and got a bluetooth head set with it. The retail price is around 19K. I got a discount as one of my uncle is regional sales manager in Reliance digital.

@AndroidFan
Thanks . I might require help from you in the future as I am a first time android user :).
