+1. The charger port is prone to damages. Except for that, Equinox is a great buy, though the budget must be extended to get one.

I have not used any Sony Ericsson handset before, so not aware of its charging port, but even after buying a Nokia X2-01, I am still looking for Equinox.
There can be 2 good handsets in 7,000 rather than one.

I have used 3 SE phones and every phone gave me this "Charging port" problem. But like emperor said, if it has the same old charging slot, then imo stay away from Equinox.

@350Z the Galaxy Y is a good buy, I know a person who owns it. The phone is good has GPS with Google Maps in it. Only drawback in it I saw is the keyboard for sending messages vertically, the letters are too close to each other & mistakes could happen, takes some time to get used to, Camera is not that great just 2MP, I say this phone is good entry level android & its VFM

IMHO, save some more cash and go for the Samsung galaxy S2. Nice phone and moreover good applications available on their marketplace.

Re: Hunt For a New Cell Phone Begins!

Just came across new Samsung Galaxy Y. Looks to be somewhat VFM: Welcome to Your New Smart Life - Galaxy Y - Smartphone - Mobile Phone | SAMSUNG

waste of money better get more high end mobile then wasting money on it . look at its internal memory so low + low ram (will make you rip apart your hair in multitasking )

If you want android mobile then only go for mobile which have atleast 512 ram and 1GB internal memory

i agree, you wont enjoy any android handsets without memory.Extent your budget and go for Lg Optimus or Sammy Galaxy SI.

Re: Hunt For a New Cell Phone Begins!

Thanks for the opinions. I have decided to finalize within a month. Still shuffling between the models. I’m now open for touch screen option as well and keeping the budget limited to around. Rs.8,000 more or less. Help?

Drive Safe,

Re: Hunt For a New Cell Phone Begins!

Best VFM go for the LG Optimus P500, Its my second phone alongside my Xperia Arc and the phone is very very good. I get about 200+ emails and never did it let me down. Only downside is lack of Flash for the camera (Not at all important for me though).

When I picked it up it was for around 10500 about 5-6 months back. Was loaded with Android Froyo. But I have upgraded it to Android Gingerbread.

Battery Lasts all day and I charge it during the night. The touch screen is also very responsive with both landscape and potrait mode.

I use the 'Touchpal' keyboard which is a breeze to type. You dont even have to look at the keyboard.

Re: Hunt For a New Cell Phone Begins!

LG Optimus seems to be a good choice. I’m concerned about the service back up / reliability of LG however. Now these are the phones I have shortlisted: LG Optimus P500, Dell XCD35, HTC Explorer, Sony Ericson Xperia X8. HTC will be over the budget but I will check if I can find one somewhere at a fairly reasonable price. Is there anything else better I have skipped under the given budget?

Re: Hunt For a New Cell Phone Begins!

LG otimus p500 not good at all low internal space + slow cpu not good if you want to enjoy android same goes to dell xcd35 . HTC and sony are more worst .

But if you want to buy one out of these all i would say LG is best .


But can you please raise your budget by 3K then buy this one you won't regret this one . very good mobile complete VFM
