Nice compilation SAM good work :)

just found 2 corrections under 15-20k section
1. Defy+ screen resolution is 480X854 and not 480x584 as written there.
2. u have named both sections as android smartphone, one should be non-android ;)

Great work Sam. Some points-

1) In 15-20K section, you've written Non-Andriod section as "Andriod"

2) What about adding a column for internal memory, especially in sub 20k section as they do matter.

3) In second line from top- spelling of PRICELIST. :))

4) One more suggestion of picking 1 or 2 better phones as suggestions in each section. You can take members help who own them.

5) A section of info about mobile processors, chipsets, and graphics would help users a lot.! :)

Re: Mobile Reference Guide: January 2012

but you already own one. New mobile for whom?

That one is for a friend/colleague, who maybe secretly hate his Symbian whenever he see my Android!! :D

(no offence to Symbian users...)

thanks everyone. will update it whenever necessary but the last part (25K & higher priced mobile) will take a week. college starts from tomorrow & hence less free time.

It's sad that you won't be able to post regular here, specially since I have just started to get my hands dirty with rooting and all...
Already read completely your "O1 Review" thread and reached Page 7 of "The Optimus One Thread"... :(

1. corrected.
2. its there for Android mobiles in sub 20k. for the non-Android mobiles, this doesn't really matter i think. i'll check into this.
3. thanks. was a typo.
4. initially i too thought same. but some may ask why i gave preference to one & ignore the other. so i gave a note at the end of each section which describes in simple language what you need to look at when buying a mobile within that budget.
5. yes. that is a nice idea. will surely do some research & add it in coming days. thanks for the tip :smile:

this is specially true for the old Symbian S60s. those can't be compared to Androids at all. even the dumb OS, BADA (no offence to Samsung Wave owners but BADA 1.* is crap) outmatch & outclasses them in looks & usability. Symbian Anna & then Belle has reduced the gap but still lot has to be done.

i will post regularly (but lately). rooting & installing custom rom is fun & easy. just read the important guidelines given in their respective thread. try something random & you may make the mobile unresponsive or at most need to reinstall the rom again.

Awesome sam :)

Repped. :D

thanks :razz:

not possible. every mobile have many roms. some have rom in hundreds. then add overclock & you are looking at around 100 different configurations per mobile. also quadrant will always be high for custom rom even for slower mobiles. have seen Galaxy5 score around 1.5k in quadrant. outmatching almost all highend mobiles with stock rom.

Re: Mobile Reference Guide: January 2012

No hard feeling dude.. just felt like a little trolling.. thats all... :D

Btw, @Sam: I am finding Motorola Defy to be a good phone for my friend, as long as he doesn't have that "brand" mania. (He says he don't like "Motorola" and that he have used "Motorola Phones", don't know how to remove the mania from him).

Just wanted to confirm one thing. Does Motorola Defy really have 1.3 Gb as internal memory? Cause, GSMArena says it has 2 GB!

next option he'll consider is Galaxy Ace. show him the chart of 10-15k mobile. specially ram. moreover Defy have 2 times the resolution of Ace. if not Defy, Xperia Mini Pro can be brought from letsbuy for just 13.2k after applying coupon code.

2Gb rom. 1.3Gb free for apps :smile:

Re: Mobile Reference Guide: January 2012

great work buddy...

would be hard to keep it updated though, with all the falling prices :)

PS: Just wanted to add, Lumia 710 (and some other W7.5 phones) come with 25GB of cloud storage, which is actually pretty useful...

LG & Sony Ericsson mobiles too have this facility provided by BOX. its like offering a memory card but lot safe but those are excluded. different shops offer different schemes at different times.

would be hard to keep it updated though, with all the falling prices :)

as it is not a pricelist, so can be updated in a monthly manner. all i need to do remove old mobiles replaced by newly launched ones. if there is a major pricecut, mobiles will get shift from 1 section to another :smile:

thanks & the main reason behind all these effort is what you have already said. also at times its easy to check mobile within a budget by opening this thread rather than checking flipkart, legstuy, infibeam, etc where a lot of information are either missing or scattered.
