Is there an option where I can copy my existing dictionary to new keyboard, this will avoid my retraining to new keyboard.

Ebay is the place my friend! Saw some nice offers there. Also if you can get hold of coupons, you can get extra discounts as well.

Buy swiftkey X.

With android keyboard there was no way I could find - between multiple ROMs.

Does anyone have any feedback on the Motorola Razr XT910

Motorola RAZR XT910's price slashed to Rs.27,800

The price drop by more than 2K really makes this a good buy. Similar performance to S2 and a better screen. Looks and feels much better and less plasticky than the common S2.

Thinking of picking it up but not sure on performance.

You can buy the HTC Sensation for 24k (23.7k from Letsbuy). That makes it the best buy of the three.

Razr is also quite capable phone. Totally worth it over S2 for that price.

Having got over that hurdle, I discovered Swype --- it is so superior to any predictive typing on a keypad. I would not swap this for a physical qwerty phone.
I took me sometime to get used to the tiny keys on Defy+. I am also in love with Swype.

Guys I really need some fast help on this one. Budget is Rs. 15000 max. I was quite impressed by the Defy plus but am worried about the after sales support Motorola offers. Those who've had any Motorola experience, please help. And what are the other good phones in this range?

The Wildfire also looks good, but I've read bad stories about their service right here on T-Bhp.

Samsung Ace. Have used an S2 extensively, and the Ace seems to look similiar. So I'm not interested in this.

Help please.

optimus 2x i think. in 18-19k and dual core.
ace is no comparison. worse screen, lesser processor (no MIUI), much less performance.
please use a defy n see its screen before u compare with wildfire et al.

as for defy - starting with the brave Samurai, there must be atleast 30-40 BHPians who own the defy and happily. Only one of us managed to visit the service center (only because IMNSHO they didn't follow instructions , thus flashing the wrong ROM and then going to service center needlessly). In his case, the center took a week or so (because they tried and then changed the motherboard or some such silly thing).

Not that i've heard samsung is much quicker in these scenarios. But not one defy has gone to svc center just like that for random malfunction - have seen that to a couple of other brands i won't name

Also, notice defy is convenient for one handed use, not as nicer in two handed use unlike other phones like S2(with bigger screen/wider bezel etc).

Just ordered LG expo with the optional pocket projector. After a lot of research I figured I am still not ready for android or windows phone. WM 6.5 with 1 Ghz snapdragon processor should be awsome.

GSMArena reports that HTC will be launching One X, S, V in Europe and Asia on Monday (April 2). I think India will also feature in the Asian countries. I think this is the reason why prices of HTC Sensation series have been reduced (to clear inventories) to make way for their new flagship devices. One X is the one with the quadcore processor and One S has a Dual-core 1.5 GHz Krait processor. I think the One S will be priced around 30k and the One X will be around 35k-36k. I do not think the One X will have many buyers here. SGS2 will now get good competition from One S. What do you guys think?

I will suggest you go for Sony live with walkman. It has all the features some of them are- 1Ghz processor, 5mp autofocus camera with HD recording etc. It is available for approx 12-13k.

If you can stretch your budget a little, consider Xperia Neo V also from Sony.

If you're not particular about Android, take a look at Samsung Omnia W. Right now available for less than 14k.
