5 Cheapest Android phones in India!

I wanted to do this post since start of this year, when I was searching a Android based phone myself – I was quite lucky to get hold of Samsung Spica – one of most “Value for Money” phone I have ever bought.

Now 6 months down the line, we still do not have too many Android Phones, especially the ones that will not dent your pocket too much. I have too many people asking me about low cost Android phones, so, thought of writing this post. Here are the 5 cheapest Android Phones currently available in Indian Market.

  20. I have been reading reviews of various touch phones for last 2 years. Till date, no site has bothered to clarify the difference between “Resistive” and “Capacitive” touch phones. How do we know what is what, and which is better?

    • Hi Sathish, You may find the answer in here. http://yampblog.blogspot.com/2009/08/resistive-vs-capacitive-touch-screens.html

    • capacitive is better if you want to use the phone only by finger, and if u want pointed accuracy and want to operate phone by stylus go for resistive touchscreen……

    • nokia asha 311 3g, 3mp cam, 1gh processor with capacitive touchscreen mobile more useful than resistive touchscreen with the price tag of 6400 the best touchscreen phone ever
