Thank You for the heads up. Was looking for deal on S2 since a long time and would have missed it if not for your post.

Booked the S2 even though had initially limited my budget to 20K as its super value for money at 22K.

Go for the Samsung Galaxy S Duos S7562
- Dual SIM
- Has 4 inch touchscreen
- 1Ghz cortex A5 processor
- 4 GB internal storage
- SD card slot expandable upto 32 GB
- 5 MP camera
- Android 4.0 OS upgradable to 4.1

The price is around 16,500 but its the best buy looking at the features

Google says the MRP is 349 and with taxes it comes to 389. Not next day delivery though.

Hi nishant, since i had to get it next day itself I paid more via amazon. Google did not guarantee the delivery period and were not clear when my cousin spoke to them so he just booked on amazon.

They have a winner or such phone in reliance retail, THAT was awesome. I quite liked it for 13k

Otherwise their phones pre-android were on a trip / UI of their own - highly not recommended

You mean Huawei Honor ? AFAIK, it sells for 18.5k. It is their flagship phone.

I am interested in the mid-range Android models of Huawei.

Would it be correct to say that Huawei phones have better quality than brands like Micromax, Karbonn etc ? And how is their service network ?

My brother wants to upgrade from his BlackBerry Bold 9000 and his budget is between 30-40K.

Please list out options in this budget.

Requirements are Email, Internet, basic photography, music and other basic things like good call quality etc.

Can you share details of the Nexus purchase - site, cost (split if possible) and any recommendations?
Was thinking of this one when I asked the query but confused -

Could you run me through the process? the website seems confused with no kind of help.Do i order and get it shipped to a physical address or do i let them handle the payments for me? and how accurate are their estimates? Shipping costs?
