Major Google Android smartphones often get superseded by more powerful high end devices. Several such devices have been announced in the first quarter of this year. The mere anticipation of these new devices causes fluctuations in the prices of existing smartphones.
At times, one doesn't need top of the line hardware but a powerful smartphone performing well enough to get through a normal d ay. Here we present to you a list of five smartphones that can be purchased for under Rs 20,000.
Sony Xperia S
Sony Xperia S features a 4.3 inch LCD Reality display that supports 1280 x 720 pixel resolution natively. It also runs the Sony Mobile Bravia engine to provide clearer images and better contrast. Sony has packed a dual core 1.5 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8260 mobile processor with 1 GB RAM to make the overall experience fluid. This smartphone offers 32 GB on-board storage but there is no memory card slot.
The Xperia S has a 12 megapixel camera that is capable of recording 1080p HD videos at 30 frames per second. It also has a 1.3 megapixel front facing camera that is capable of supporting 720p HD video chats. Wireless connectivity is enabled with 3G networks and WiFi with WiFi Direct support. Sony Mobile has added Stereo FM with RDS and also offers better GPS experience with A-GPS and Glonass support. The Xperia S features an HDMI port but packs a 1750 mAh battery, which might be a bit inadequate. This smartphone is available for about Rs 19,290 from the Tradus website.
