Whenever you think of buying a mobile in this range, you will be most confused as this segment is drastically flooded with huge number of mobiles from each & every mobile manufacturer in India. To worsen, above 75% of China clad phones also fall in this range. So it really screwed me to select just 5 out of thousands of models. Hope you like it too.
1. Samsung S3310 : Rs.3,690
This is the most traditional form factor and still loved by most. Samsung S3310 is one of the most superb piece of value for money with the stunning looks. It is covered with metal casing in the front & rugged leather type casing in the back. In fact the features won’t disappoint you:
2. Samsung S3500 : Rs.4,190
I am not biased to Samsung, but they really have some good options in this price range. This is another popular form factor specially liked by females, though the option for male colors are also available. The features are quite similar to S3310.
3. LG GW300 : Rs.4,500
Though LG was not able to do much in qwerty segment, but LG GW300 packs some nice specs in an economical price which makes it an impressive phone & gives an hands up over similar Samsung Qwerty TXT. The qwerty keypad & navigation buttons are quite comfortable to use & it has a good audio quality. Camera quality is average and the device supports multi-tasking. Over all a good option for office going folks.
4. LG KP500 Cookie : Rs. 4,710
We have something for every one & LG KP 500 is something touchscreen fans will love to get. This phone is complete eye candy featuring a 3 inch screen loaded with Flash based user interface, accelerometer sensor for auto rotate & handwriting recognition. Additionally 3.1 Megapixel camera is something makes it a sure shot buy. Supports multitasking. Cool phone for anyone.
5. Samsung Corby Mate : Rs.4,590
Guyz I am sorry but its Samsung again. The corby mate is a cool phone targeting the youth audience & the cheapest option in slide out qwerty keypad form factor. The phone features a nice music phone with a clear & loud audio quality. The 2 mega pixel camera is good and produces good pictures in daylight. Only thing lacking is 3.5 mm headset jack. Cool phone for SMS & SNS folks
Amazingly not a single phone from Nokia was able to get in to Top 5 in this segment. But than its a consumer oriented market. Who will give most will sell most.
