  6. Neeraj

    Hi Brother,
    I want to buy dual sim Mobile in range of 12000 to 15000. Can I trust on Gionee smartphones ? What is aspect of durability of Chines brand Gionee or xolo or micromax ? By the way, what is your opinion about Gionee Elife E3 ?

  7. Shiva

    Are these the best smartphones for july 2014?

  8. Prabhat Kumar

    Good list of Smartphones but I think Gionee series phones should also be included..
    They give a perfect competition to other smart phones in price range and features….

  9. shiv prakash

    should we trust Chinese brands brands like gionee, xolo? and why?

    • Hi Shiv!
      Xolo is an Indian brand whereas Gionee is Chinese. Yes, you should trust them as their Android devices have good specifications and they’re highly affordable.

    • Madhesh

      Xolo play 6x-1000
      Asus zenfone 5
      Xiaomi Mi3

  12. Madhesh

    I just like Moto g , honor 3c in this list.
    But there are many good phones better than these like Xiaomi Mi3, Asus zenfone 5, Xolo play 6x-1000.
    These three are my suggestions who want to buy a good phone under 13k.
    Xolo play 6x-1000 is the best gaming phone right now.
    Xiaomi Mi3 is for official users.(Not good for gaming). Its just to show our classyness.
    Asus zenfone 5(recommended) is half way from gaming and style

  13. Anaz

  17. k sahu

    please tell me about the quality of Xolo Brand mobile. I heard that it is reasonable and performance wise excellent phone. What about Xolo 8X-1100 ?

    • xolo is one of the top Indian brands. If i were you, i would go for Xiaomi Mi3 instead of 8X-1100 as its antutu benchmark scores are much better.

      • satya

        Hey bro i am very confused about moto g2 and samsung s3 neo can u plz suggest

  18. rahul

    well done bro..!! i just need ur advice … wants a phone under 12000 which is not having screen greter than 4.5 inch and also having good camera and harware… waiting for ur reply…

  19. Yogesh

    Moto g 2nd
    Asus 5zen
    Htc desire 616/516
    Whic best phone

    • Zenfone 5 and Moto G 2nd generation have scored around 18000 in antutu benchmark tests. Thus both phones are equally good. You can go for any one of these 2.

      • satya

        Is moto g2 better than s3 neo in battery backup,camera,speed

        • Hi Satya!
          S3 neo has more RAM, storage and better pixel density. It supports 64GB SD cards too. Battery in Moto G2 will last longer as it has lower volume of RAM and lesser storage capacity. Its display has corning glass. Speed depends on the processor. Moto G2, S3 neo uses the same Snapdraon chip (with same clock rate) and GPU is also the same. Thus i think Moto G2 is better handset. Cameras in phones from Motorola, Sony, Samsung are powerful. Thus there wouldn’t be any noticeable difference between images captured by Samsung S3 neo or G2.

  20. Yogesh

    Whic best brand & quality

    Xiomi have some issues with its compatibility of their software with hardware ……..

    for ex…Xiomi Redmi 1s got very poor battery usage time ….and it heated very ..quickly …and ..that’s ..why …Xiomi is not stable ..brand …
    The greater the ..Specs list of any mobile does not give us the better performance if it doesn’t have any good software or we can say stable software version … …think ..once before seeing only ..features ..just first ..its real world usage …..

    • Yes! There’s some software issue and s/w issues can be solved. I’ve used 1s phone and i never experienced any battery problem. No matter whichever phone it is, playing games while drain battery quickly.

    Which processor good between qualcomm snapdragon and media tak?

    • It depends upon the model. Earlier models of MTK were not as powerful as Snapdragon processors. But now, Mediatek is giving a tough competition to Qualcomm with its latest computing architectures.

  50. Narasimhan J

    Hi Pramod, Very nice information. Please clarify me whether I can go for Karbonn Titanium Octane Plus. How is their service.

What do you suggest. Shall I go for Micromax Canvas Nitro A311 otherwise?

    Secondly I have one Micromax A210 with Android 4.2.1. Can I update it with the Kit Kat version
