among the phones in his range.. lumina 710 has a decent screen, and better battery life.. should go for it...

btw.. am not sure lumina's clear black lcd can stand upto omnia w's super amoled.. :O

Thanks for the replies guys. The Lumia 710 as suggested by many of you'll, surely is a very nice phone . But the lack of expandable memory is the dealbreaker for me as i carry a lot of music + ebooks with me, for which i will be needing a 32gig card. So, i guess the only phone that fits the bill is the Sony Ericsson Live with Walkman.

And i'm not even thinking about getting the Galaxy Ace. That idea has long vanished! :D

if you are willing to buy online... Neo V is available for 15.05K in ebay. new one.
its got the same chipset as LWW, just a larger screen... :)

if not... LWW is good enough buy in your budget

And how's that?

that's just my view...the blacks look deeper..even the text (smaller text) feels slightly better...till I actually compared the two omnia w and lumia I thought the amoled is way way better...not the case..

Btw according to anandtech its got a much brighter display as well..

I saw that . But aren't those coming with a Seller's warranty and not a manufacturer's one? Don't know how reliable that is tbh..

I love the Neo V man. I'd sell 1 of my pinkies if it were possible to get that phone :p

well.. tbh i never bought anything from ebay... but these letsbuy and flipkart have good enough waranty... if its defective u send it back to them.. they replace it and send it back immediately... no sure abt ebay.. should be similar... as the guy is a power seller(15.05 one).
If anyone has exp of buying from ebay, they can share.
Go for Neo v if you can... larger screen is a big bonus... :)

@OP These Neo V phones which offer seller's warranty are imported models and if the Phone is defective you will have to 'send' your phone to them, and then again you would have no idea in what time are you gonna get it back. I know people to which this happened and although the seller did change their phones it took them 1-1.5 months and a dozen angry phone calls to the seller.
So I suggest you go and check your local shops for the phone.

If you don't mind Symbian, you can try the Nokia 603. It has pretty much every feature you require except flash on the camera. Symbian Belle has come a long way and is very usable now.

The other option for you is the Motorola Fire XT, which packs Android 2.3 and also has an LED flash.

But the Nokia 603 has a much better ClearBack display, you can say it's comparable to SCLCD from Samsung.

thats why i wrote "hard to find moto defy".... :p



maybe he never bought anything online so he's not comfortable with it...

I'm a regular online shopper. But i need to have the feel of the phone i'm planning to get before buying . So i would prefer an 'offline' purchase.

I'm very busy with work at the moment. I have decided to get the Live with Walkman as it offers pretty much everything i require . I will have to make-do with the small screen .

Thanks for all the help :)
