I want to buy a smartphone.
I have carried on quite a search, still not able to decide which 1 to buy. Earlier was going for Dell Venue pro but was costing me much. Then though of Motorola Defy Plus, that too was 2-3k above my budget so didnt even bought that 1 and every1 advised me not to buy motorola.
Budget : 7k-10k
Features I need, though can be compromised :
1> Looks
2> 3G : with front cam, wi-fi
3> OS : Android or windows preferred. But any would work if all other features are available.
4> Good Processor speed.
5> Brand : Nokia, Samsung,HTC preferred. No to Motorola.
6> Camera : Good Cam (atleast 3.2mp)

Please do not suggest Samsung galaxy Y. Neither it excites me…nor do looks really good. moreover,Every second guy is having it. So, a No to it.

Its better to purchase ace duos which cost 11660/- Because in ace internal memory is 180mb and in ace duos 3 gb there is no use of android phone without inbuilt memory…..

Mi 425 is better than Mi 350 in each spec
Have 1 Ghz processor, Bigger 4" screen, better camera, upgradable to ICS, much better looking

In the end…its completely your call wink

not sure why you’re against defy +…..if you check youtube for the robustness,there’s probably no phone like it. There are videos where people have started playing a video and immersed the phone under water and the phone has worked fine. Its also drop proof to a certain extent. Not sure if ics is available for it, but if it is, it should be a good buy.

Otherwise the galaxy ace should be good. I don’t have a hands on on it but I have the S2 and assume that its a smaller version of it. So shouldn’t be too much of an issue.

I completely agree with you about the robustness of defy.
I too have S2 and also have used Ace. Ace is good enough but he needs a secondary cam which defy+ or ace doesn’t have..
