Top 10 Android Phones in India with Prices

With every week new Android phones are entering the market and this has led to its amazing success. Android OS has already become the Second most used Mobile Operating System after Nokia’s Symbian. It has started becoming very difficult to keep pace with the Growing market and latest phone launches in the industry!

Here is a comprehensive guide which will let you decide the best Android phone available in the market according to your needs.

1. LG Optimus one ( Rs 12,300)

Lg Optimus One Android

LG Optimus One is a mid rage Android phone and you can’t really expect it to be having a host of features. It has Android 2.2 Froyo OS and will be updated to Gingerbread 2.3.

It boosts a 3MP camera and 150 MB of Internal memory with microSD card support. 1500 mAh Battery is a really good addition.

If you want to experience some Android magic and are NOT on a very high budget, this is the one!

2. Samsung I9000 Galaxy S ( Rs 28,000)
Galaxy S
With its successor Nexus S still in the boxes, this is yet the most successful as well as the most powerful phone in the Indian Market.

Samsung Galaxy S I9000 is about 9.9mm thin and runs on the Android platform 2.2 and equipped with a 1 GHz processor.

This phone also has a Super AMOLED display of 4 inches, 5 megapixel camera with auto-focus and 720p video recording capability with a frame rate of 30 fps.

If you are a speed hawk and have money to shell out then you must go for this!

3. HTC Desire ( Rs 27,900)
HTC Desire phone
HTC Desire may not be the best Android device available worldwide right now, but it was certainly a boon for Indian Android fans. With Google ditching India for Nexus One, HTC Desire certainly filled that void.

Talking about this Android 2.1 powered smartphone, it comes with a 3.7 inch SLCD display, powerful 1 Ghz Snapdragon processor, 576 MB RAM, 512 MB ROM, 4 GB SD Card in-the-box with 32 GB total support and 5 MP Camera with LED Flash. It sports HTC’s very own Sense UI which is pretty good to work with.

The HTC Desire just doesn’t get to the marks set by the Galaxy S. With a price tag somewhat equivalent to that of Galaxy S, I think you should get it only if you are a beloved lover of the HTC Sense.

4. Motorola Milestone XT720 ( Rs 24,300) (Not in top 10 anymore)
Motorola Milestone XT720
The Motorola Milestone XT720 has the specifications of Android 2.1 OS, an 8 megapixel camera with Xenon flash, 720p video recording, 3.7 inch Display.

Though many  Smartphone pundits say this is just the Milestone without a QWERTY keyboard, it also features something which may appeal to a person looking for a high-end Android device, like a 8MP camera, a large touch screen and a 1GHZ processor.

This Smartphone doesn’t seem to stand the competition of the Galaxy S or the iPhone. Personally, I think the only great feature of this phone is the 8MP camera.

5. Samsung Galaxy 3 ( Rs 11,750) (Not in Top 10 anymore)
Samsung Galaxy 3
If you are a budget customer, then Samsung Galaxy 3 is a good choice. Samsung Galaxy 3 is a device which comes under Galaxy series by Samsung. Samsung Galaxy 3 has very outstanding features at an affordable price.

Samsung Galaxy 3 has Android 2.1 (2.2 upgrade), Quad band GSM/3G HSDPA, 667 MHz processor, 3.2 inch TFT touchscreen, 16M colors display with screen resolutions of 240×400 pixels. Its has a 3 MP camera equipped with zoom and auto-focus.

In comparison to LG Optimus One, this has a weaker processer, RAM and OS. In my opinion you should rather go for the LG Optimus One!

6. Motorola Milestone ( Rs 22,350) (Not in Top 10 anymore)
Motorola Milestone
If you are looking for a Qwerty phone which is equally good in all other aspects too, then this is it! It has a 5MP camera which can record video at 720 x 480px resolution with LED flash. It has a capitave screen of 3.7 inches.

The Motorola Milestone sells for approximately Rs. 22,000. It is a good phone featuring Google’s Stock UI and has the features of old Android 2.0.

7. Acer Liquid E ( Rs 19,199) (Not in Top 10 anymore)
Acer Liquid E
Acer Liquid E has a 3.5 inch capacitive display Touchscreen. It runs on a powerful Snapdragon processor and has a display resolution of 480 x 800 pixel.

It also has  5 megapixel camera and 1350 mAh Li-Ion battery.

Running on Android 2.1 with a price tag of Rs 19,000 , it isn’t worth the money.

8. Micromax Andro A60 ( Rs 6,999)
Micromax Andro A60
This is Micromax’s first Android phone. The Andro A60 has a 3.2 Megapixels Camera with Video Recording and Autofocus, Android  v2.1 and a 600 MHz processor. It has a 2.8 inch screen with a resolution of 340 x 240. It contains a 1280 mAh Li-Ion battery.

With this price tag, it is worth trying this Android phone. Thats the reason why its called “my first Android phone” (experiencing Android for the first time)

9. Motorola Flipout( Rs 14,999) (Not in Top 10 anymore)
Motorola Flipout
If you want a phone with a completely new design and a form factor, then this is just for you! Flipout features a five-row QWERTY keypad that pivots from its 2.8-inch display.

On the hardware side, the Moto Flipout runs on a modest Texas Instrument’s 600 MHz processor. It has 512MB of Internal memory and a 2GB SD card that can be expanded up to 32GB.

It runs on Android 2.1 and its design is its unique selling point!

10. Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 ( Rs 27,949) (Not in Top 10 anymore)
Sony Ericsson Xperia X10
The Sony Ericsson XPERIA X10 is a phone running on Android OS 1.6 (upgradeable to 2.1 but Gingerbread 2.3 is here) and featuring 32GB internal memory, 4-inch capacitive touchscreen and Rachael User Interface.

It has a 8MP camera with a resolution of 852 x 480 pixels and its runs on a Qualcomm Snapdragon 1 GHz processor.

To round it all up, according to me, if you have a budget of :

  • less than 10,000 then go for Micromax Andro A60
  • less than 20,000 then go for LG Optimus One
  • and if you have budget of more than 20,000 then you must get a Samsung Galaxy S

Update: Some Good Android Phones available now are Motorola Defy, Samsung Galaxy Ace, HTC WildFire, Samsung Galaxy SL.

    Uhh, i need an Android phone which has a Touchscreen and a Qwerty keypad. And my budget is around 5k – 7.5k
    Would you suggest the Micromax Andro or The Samsung Gravity Smart? Or is there any other phones that are better than the Andro and Gravity Smart between 5k – 7.5k

  • http://www.techfreakstuff.com Rohit Sane

    @Mayur Touchscreen and a Qwerty keypad don’t come under 7.5k , a good phone Android Phone in your range would be the LG Optimus One!

  • Mayur

    Hmmm.. LG Optimus one is a li’l overpriced for me. So, well.. I think i’m gonna buy the Micromax Andro. Oh, and do you think we can fix an external qwerty keypad to the Micromax Andro?
