my main priority is messaging and battery life!!
looks and mp3 ringtones are secondary
camera is not of great importance.
bluetooth and memory slot would be nice as addition but not urgent!

i have checked a few places and wanted your opinions
3 month old nokia 5310 (Rs.3600)
brand new nokia 5130(Rs.5200)
which among these is a better phone?if not for these ,any other?

I have a Nokia 6301. I went to get it unlocked to 4-5 places and everyone say that it can be unlocked for only for Vodafone. Any reason why it cant be unlocked for Airtel when its quad band?

i have this phone and it is quite good. Are you getting it second hand ?\

It is a very sturdy. Back side though is fingerprint prone, its classy. features are rich.

only sore points to me are

1. Camera is lousy
2. Display is small.

hey vivek. i suggest you skip g1

here is why. just my opinion.

not worth $150. i used it for a while and then sold it.
not much app support. low battery life. not too good user interface (ex iphone 2g and existing iphone 3g user).

i also didn't like the looks of g1, though this varies from person to person i don't like it. also i am used to microsoft exchange in iphone, not there in g1 so a bit more prob for me.

major gripe is lack of 3.5mm jack for headphone. which is frustating. and camera is more or less same as iphone. not too good. may be a little bit gud quality. videos can be recorded by recent upgrade, but its too grainy for my liking.

this is just what i felt about g1 which made me sell it for 3g. hope this helps you.



i guess newer version would be better as and when it comes out. android platform is good though

I had to litrelly hunt it down, looks like there is an artificial scarcity in Bangalore, and they all try to push LG cookie. Found one when i was checking out Samsung showroooms.
How is the audio/video quality of the Samsung Star S5233 ? And is the camera pics any good ? How would you rate the phone ?

You can either get the Free 160GB Hard Disk or the 10% Discount.
If i were you, I would have gone for the 160GB hard Disk

Buying one pretty soon.
Have used a cousin's phone for about 5 days and feel its really good. ( Especially with the new firmware already released with all the bugs removed)
