First of all, thanks to your wonderful response and support to our Top 5 series. Last in the series, Top 5 phones with unique concepts, where we introduced you through some unique mobiles in Indian mobile market, got a superb response too and a reason to be proud of Innovative Indian Market.

Indian mobile industry is unique in a number of terms. On top of which is the number of segmentation we have is much more than any other product or industry. Segments are divides on the basis of price range, rural or urban, kind of usage (Office, multimedia), Operating Systems etc, etc. That is the reason why this market has place for every small & big player. From Nokia, Samsung to G-five or Intex, everyone is getting some juice. And still saturation is too far.

Well, enough of boring talks, lets get back to the point. Today’s list is dedicated to guys who have a decent budget (10-20K) and looking for a nice phone. Frankly speaking, when you are ready to loose so much bucks, you deserve a phone with every damn thing in it. Lets go through the list now.
