It doesn’t have a QWERTY phone unlike Motorola’s other Android offerings. A 3.2 inch capacitive touch screen has a resolution of 320×480. Quench runs Android 2.1 with a 600MHz Qualcomm processor. 256MB RAM should suffice the mobile computing needs. Bluetooth, WiFi, USB and FM are present. A 3.2 megapixel camera and 6.5 hours of talk time are passable features.

Samsung Galaxy i7500 : Priced at Rs. 12499, Galaxy i7500 is the most expensive Xperia X8 Videocon Zeus V7500 Spice Mi300 Sony Ericsson SE Xperia X10 Mini Samsung Galaxy Spica i5700 Samsung Galaxy i7500 Samsung Galaxy 5 i5503 Samsung Galaxy 3 I5801 Motorola Quench XT3 Motorola Motorola Charm list of android phones in india LG Optimus One LG GW620 LG GT540 Optimus HTC WildFire HTC Tattoo good 3g phones in india Dell XCD28 cost effective android phones india cheapest android phones india Android phones india android phones in india under 13k 2010 android phones in india below 15K android phones in india below 15000 android phones in india below 10K android phones in india below 10000 android phones in india Android phone india Acer beTouch E130 Acer beTouch E110 galaxy. It has a 3.2-inch capacitive touch screen with 320×480 resolution but its Qualcomm processor has a 528 MHz speed. That is far less than the other less expensive Galaxy’s on the list. The biggest selling point for Galaxy i7500 is its 5 megapixel camera and 8 GB memory. Samsung Spica which falls in the same price range is no longer available.

Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 Mini : Priced at Rs. 12899, SE Xperia X10 Mini has only one impressive feature – a 5 megapixel camera. At 2.5 inch its screen size is lower than the rest and a 3.5 hours talk time is just not a good bargain. Like many phones on this list, Xperia is powered by Qualcomm’s 600 MHz processor.

Other phones which did not make it to the list are HTC Tattoo (cost Rs. 12999), Acer beTouch E130 ( Rs.13199), Motorola Charm (Rs. 13499), LG Optimus One (Rs. 13500), Sony Ericsson Xperia X8 (Rs. 13950), LG GW620 (Rs.14599) and HTC Wildfire (Rs. 14799). Of these LG Optimus One is the recently launched phone which runs Android 2.2 and seems like a good value for money phone.

Videocon Zeus is a fully loaded Android phone and looks like a good buy on paper.

PS : The prices mentioned above are the prices as on 21 Nov 2010, on Flipkart and FutureBazaar. Current day prices might vary. Some of the phones might be out of stock as these were launched few months back. This should be a helpful guide about what to expect at what price points and nothing beyond.

PPS : A bit about the term ‘cheapest’. Cheap here means the cost and nothing else. An euphemistic term like ‘cost-effective’ would do the trick. That would be two words in place of one word. Besides who are we really offending here?
