Few months back, I felt like I should have a smartphone, which may make me smart. So, I was planning to get a Samsung Galaxy 3, which was a good Android phone on a low budget, as per the reviews I came across the web. And I got a good deal online, so I bought it. I got my first Android, with Eclairs (Android 2.1 is called as Eclairs).
I am dividing all Android phones available in India to two categories, based on their price. The lower segment phones cost between Rs 10,500 and Rs 15,000, where the higher segment phones cost between Rs 22,000 and Rs 28,000.
Between Rs 10,500 and Rs 15,000:
Sony Ericsson X8
Price: Rs 13,950
Plus: Well built, decent performer
Minus: Mediocre display
A decent phone with a decent feature set, the XPERIA X8 has a very mediocre display and Android also faces issues with lag, owing to slower hardware. Overall performance is good.
