5 MP, 2596х1948 pixels, autofocus camera
800 MHz Cortex-A5 CPU
Microsoft Windows Phone 7.5 Mango OS

You asked only half the question.

First decide on a platform. Android or Windows (ios rules itself out at this price range), then decide on the phone.

If Windows: (Not upgradeable to Windows 8. So, basically you will be buying a dead platform)

Then go for the Lumia 510. If you are hell bent on Windows phone, then wait for another 3 months.

If Android:

Xperia Miro

Although, I would suggest you to take a look at Micromax Canvas 2 a110 and Karbonn a21, if you don't mind brands.

I have a Micromax Canvas 2 a110 and I am sure performance wise, my phone will beat all the phones you have listed hands down. The screen is huge (I liked it, though many don't) and brilliant. Most of the games works fine. Temple run, angry birds, raging thunder, GTA III, asphalt 6. Camera (8MP) is decent. Not as good as 8mp, but better than the 5mp camera you will find on other devices at this price. ICS out of the box.

The only problem with the phone is internal storage is 2.5GB (enough for all apps and games, but not for big hd games like asphalt 7). You cannot install apps on external sd card. But that goes for all android mobiles.

Check if you can get hold of Live With Walkman. Officially discontinued but if you find it, grab it fast. Or Xperia Ray.

How is the sound quality through earphones(A110).

Hi, are you interested in Motorola Droid 3 CPU : Dual-core 1GHz Cortex-A9; GPU: PowerVR SGX540. I have brand new one. Supported both CDMA and GSM sim cards. World Phone (Support GSM & CDMA sim ). Condition 10/10 not single dot plus free accessories. @13600 shipped.

It's rooted and unlocked GSM and CDMA sim works flawless + USSD will work not like other phone like Photon which does not support. And plenty of ICS ROM available. My both network are working with Data not like Samsung Duo's phone which only support Data on CDMA or GSM.

Thanx for your priceless advice.I'm using Defy for the last 1 and half years and I'm satisfied,so this time also I should go for brand,spaciely when it is for my sister.

No doubt Live With Walkman is a great phone,but it has 3.2" screen.my sister asks for a 3.5" screen.

O.K What do you know about Lenovo k700?Do you use it anybody?How is it?

You said the budget is 13k but Neo L is in your list and costs around 17-18k I guess.
Any words on that?

lumia 610 has 8gb you can go for it. And i use WP. There are a lot of free apps . Don't worry.

And for the nth time WP7 is not a dead platform. The cheapest WP8 phone is going to be around 19k. And WP7 is going to still be on sale for the 9k - 19k range.

If I should go for a non front camera,no expendable memory phone then why Lumia 610?I must sugest for experia u for its grt look,hd v.recording,good processor and obviously with front facing camera.
But thanx for you opinion.
I have just got the information that LG L5 has gorila glass display,is it true?then I should buy that.

L5 has extremely poor display of 320X480, same processor as Lumia 510. So having Gorilla Glass doesn't really change things much.
Instead wait for Optimus L7 to get a small pricecut as it is already selling for 14.5k

you have to decide in the end. WP is a different experience. You'll know when you use it. Its worth the tradeoff of only 8 gb memory. And I'm telling you that front facing camera won't be used after first few times. The novelty wears off superfast.
Anyway, if these features are important to you, get the Sony.
