Buy Android Smartphones In Rs 6000 (Guide) RgyaaN

Buy Android Smartphones In Rs 6000 (Guide) RgyaaN
Budget Android Smartphones Under Rs 6,000 In India (June 2013)
   At a time when all smartphone manufacturers are busy releasing high-end devices sporting expensive price tags (best example being Samsung’s GALAXY S4, the Apple iPhone series, and Sony Xperia Z and its brethren), and targeting the so-called elite sector and youth with money, we sometimes feel that the common man is not getting his due when it comes to using latest technology smartphones.

Since feature phone users today are being bombarded with myths about spending at least Rs 10,000 for a decent smartphone, people with not so high monthly income are almost deprived of the smartphone experience. Also, there are these doubting Thomases who would first want to get their feet wet before investing a large sum in premium smartphones. Having said that, we would like to add that not all inexpensive phones available in the market offer great value for money. In fact, Android devices with less than 512 MB of RAM can be highly sluggish and experience breakers.

Keeping all that in mind, we have compiled a list of smartphones that can be purchased for an amount less than Rs 6,000 in India. These smartphones may not be “the latest” as some of today’s high-end phones (with Quad-core processors and HD screens), but provide good value for money and a smooth smartphone experience to people using them. Here are the smartphones that you can purchase for Rs 6,000 (or less) in India:
Xolo A500: (Rs. 5,900)
Coming from the company that holds the distinction of launching the first Intel powered smartphone, Xolo A500, though not Intel based, comes with a dual-core processor, 512 MB RAM, and runs Android 4.0 Ice-Cream sandwich operating system. It also provides users dual cameras as well as 3G connectivity. This smartphone can be bought for Rs 5,900.
Key technical specifications of Xolo A500 are as follows:
  • 4-inch capacitive display (800×480 pixels).
  • Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich OS.
  • 1 GHz dual-core Snapdragon processor.
  • Dual-SIM support.
  • 4GB internal memory which can be upgraded up to 32GB with the help of microSD card.
  • 5 MP Primary camera with LED Flash and 0.3 MP front camera.
  • 512MB RAM.
  • 3G, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and GPS connectivity.

Lava Iris 405(Rs 5,900)
Priced at Rs 5,900, the Lava Iris 405 runs Android 4.1 Jelly Bean OS, and has twin cameras. The smartphone claims to provide a talktime of upto 6 hrs on 2G, and supports FOTA (Firmware-Over-The-Air) to carry out future firmware upgrades. Again, it has a 1 GHz dual-core processor and 512 MB RAM.
Its key tech specs are:
  • 4″ capacitive touch screen having 480 x 800 pixels.
  • Android 4.1 Jelly Bean operating system.
  • 1 GHz dual-core CPU.
  • 5 MP rear camera with LED flash, and a 0.3 MP front camera.
  • 512 MB RAM.
  • Dual-SIM support.
  • 4 GB internal storage.
  • MicroSD card slot for expansion up to 32 GB.
  • Wi-Fi with hotspot, 3G, Bluetooth, 3.5 mm audio jack, FM radio, aGPS.
  • 1400 mAh Li-Polymer battery, with 6 hours 2G talk time.
Micromax A89 Ninja: (Rs 6,000)
An economical Micromax offering, the A89 Ninja is priced at Rs 6000, and provides dual-SIM support, and runs on the Android 4.0 operating system. This smartphone is suited for basic internet browsing and regular usage, apart from being used as a “music-phone”. This may not be ideal for camera enthusiasts or those thinking about making video calls as it comes with a 3 MP camera, and no front camera.
Tech-specs of Micromax A89 Ninja:
  • 4-inch capacitive touch screen display having 480 x 800 pixels
  • Android 4.0 operating system
  • 1 GHz dual-core CPU
  • Dual-SIM support
  • 3 MP rear camera
  • 512 MB RAM
  • 4 GB internal storage
  • MicroSD card slort for expansion up to 32 GB
  • Bluetooth, A-GPS, Wi-Fi, and USB connectivity
  • 1450 mAh battery with claimed talktime of 4 hours and standby time of 7 days.
Priced at Rs 5,000, the Smart Flo Pace Mi-422 from Spice is the cheapest Android phone in this list. Unlike the rest, this one does not have 3G connectivity or a dual-core processor. But it does have a 1GHz CPU along with 512 MB of RAM, and dual cameras. It runs Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich OS. For that price, it’s a good dual-SIM Android smartphone for beginners. 

Tech-specs of the device are:
  • Android 4.0 OS.
  • Dual-SIM.
  • 4″ capacitive multi-touch screen with pixel dimensions of 800×480 pixels.
  • 1 GHz CPU.
  • 512 MB RAM.
  • microSD card support for up to 32 GB.
  • 3.2 megapixel rear camera with LED flash, 0.3 megapixel front camera.
  • Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Edge, A-GPS.
Karbonn A7 Star: (Rs 6000)
Karbonn A7 Star has a price tag of Rs 6,000 and is the only phone in this list that offers a 4.5-inch display at an affordable price. Apart from this, the smartphone has a 5MP camera.  However, there is only 164 MB internal storage by default, but it does have a microSD card slot to expand it further by 32 GB. The only catch here is that the phone does not support 3G.
Tech-specs of Karbonn A7 Star:
  • 4.5″ Capacitive screen with 480×854 pixels.
  • Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich).
  • 1 GHz dual-core CPU.
  • Dual-SIM support.
  • 5 megapixel rear camera with LED flash, VGA front camera.
  • 512 MB of RAM.
  • 164 MB internal storage.
  • MicroSD card slot for expansion up to 32 GB.
  • Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, FM radio.
  • 3.5 mm jack, microUSB port.
  • 1400 mAh battery.
So that’s the list of quality budget smartphones as of now. Going by the speed at which mobile technology is advancing, I would not be surprised to see quad-core phones in this list next quarter.

Nokia Lumia 1520 Vs Samsung Galaxy Note 3

We take a look at Nokia’s rumored phablet

News has been steadily leaking about a Nokia phablet hitting the market in the last quarter of 2013, and just recently @evleaks started tweeting pictures of a device that they’re claiming is that very device, the Nokia Lumia 1520. Now, preliminary specs have leaked for the device and it’s looking promising, so we thought we’d compare it to the Samsung Galaxy Note 3, which will probably be its closest competitor, to see which one offers the most for the money.

Power

According to the rumors, Nokia has given the 1520 a Qualcomm Snapdragon an 800 chipset, which means a 2.3GHz Krait 400 processor and an Adreno 330 GPU. It’s likely to have 2GB RAM and will run on the Amber iteration of Windows Phone 8, Microsoft’s mobile operating system. It will also apparently have 32GB storage space but, sadly, no SD slot.
The Galaxy Note 3 has an Exynos 5 Octa 5420 chipset, consisting of two quad-core processors; one a 1.9 GHz Cortex-A15 and the other a 1.3 GHz Cortex-A7. The smaller of the two deals with the processes that don’t require as much power, leaving the larger to handle the power-heavy tasks. It comes with 3GB RAM and runs on Android Jelly Bean, version 4.3. The Note 3 comes with 16, 32 or 64GB storage and has a micro SD slot that accepts up to an extra 64GB space.

Display

The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 has a 5.7-inch, super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen, which runs at 1080 x 1920 pixels, pushing out a pixel density of 386PPI. It also comes with an S-Pen, which gives added options for input.
The Nokia Lumia 1520 is slated to run at the same resolution pixels, but across a 6-inch capacitive touchscreen, giving it a slightly lower pixel density of 367PPI.

Form

Both devices are very typical of their ranges, with the Samsung following the same large-screen, round edges format as the other Galaxy handset, offering just one button on the fascia. The device is made of plastic, which has been unpopular in the past, but Samsung has given the device a faux-leather back to try and jazz things up a bit.
The Nokia 1520 has the same straight lines as the rest of the Lumia range and so far, from leaked images, we know it comes in red. It appears to be made in a sturdy polycarbonate material, giving it a tough, hardwearing exterior and, well, it’s a Nokia, so you just know it’ll be well built.

Camera

The Galaxy Note 3 has an impressive 13-megapixel primary camera that captures 4128 x 3096 pixels and offers a huge number of enhancements, such as autofocus, LED flash, Dual Shot, simultaneous HD video and image recording, geo-tagging, touch focus, face and smile detection, image stabilization, panorama and HDR. Its video recording capabilities are notable too, capturing 2160P video at 30 frames per second and 180P video at 60 frames per second.
Nokia has reportedly given the Nokia 1520 a whopping 20-megapixel primary camera, which is reported to sport Carl Zeiss optics and benefit from autofocus, LED flash, PureView technology, geo-tagging, face detection and panorama, as well as 1080P video capture at 30 frames per second.

XOLO has launched its new flagship smartphone the XOLO Q1000S, the phone is a revision of the older Q1000. The new device is just 6.98 mm thick compared to 8.8 mm for the older Q1000.

The most prominent features of the XOLO Q1000S are the Unibody construction along with the 5 inch HD IPS One Glass Solution (OGS) with a resolution of 1280 x 720 px and a 13 MP camera with BSI 2 sensor at the back and a 5 MP camera with BSI 1 sensor in the front.

The Q1000s is fairly pocketable, this is because of the 6.98 mm thickness. Inside the box, there is a usual mix up of things, a charging cable, a set of earphones, the USB wall charger, an extra screen protector and some standard documentation.

Nokia : WP8 Amber Update Will Roll Out To All Devices By September End

 

Nokia has promised that its Lumia Amber update will reach all Windows Phone 8 devices by the end of September.
The Finnish phone maker is rolling out the update for its Lumia 920, Lumia 820, Lumia 720, Lumia 620 and Lumia 520 as well as their variants.
Amber introduces a number of new features to the Lumia range, including new photo-editing tools and improved camera capabilities. The Nokia Smart Camera app also introduces motion sequence shooting on its high-end Lumia 920, 925 and 928 handsets.
The Amber update also has “Glance Screen,” a tool that makes your phone’s inactive state more interesting. When your handset is inactive, it will display a clock and battery information. So, you can more quickly interact with your phone without having to do anything at all. You can turn off Glance, of course, or have it switch off after a set amount of time.
Unfortunately the negative news includes that some of the most desirable features are not coming to all handsets.
In the post Nokia confirms that the ‘double tap to wake’ feature is not supported on Lumia 720, Lumia 625, Lumia 620, Lumia 521, Lumia 520.
Also Nokia confirmed the FM Radio feature will not be coming to the Lumia 620, Lumia 810 and Lumia 928 as they “do not have the FM radio chip.”
Nokia recently launched its new Nokia Here Auto in-dash navigation system.
