The Sub-15k Android Phones Market


No this is not a help me buy a new phone thread.
This is just a discussion thread on the current state of sub-15k phones in the market.
Phones to note are:
Karbonn A9
Spice Stellar Mi-425
Spice Stellar Mi-500
Just of the top of my head.
These have insane specifications for the price and I can't fathom why people aren't buying these phones.
Can we please have a discussion on this?

Re: The Sub-15k Market

Nokia C6-00. kick arse phone with a really good camera. the camera itself is worth buying.
not to mention lifetime GPS free! GPS is very accurate. Coverage is pretty darn nice.

these two features make the phone a must buy.

Re: The Sub-15k Market

My vote for the Mi-500 (not out yet)
Tentative release date: next week (as quoted by the neighborhood Spice vendor)

I am also in the market for a cheap phone for my uncle.
Thinking of getting him a Micromax A45 (costs only Rs. 5250/-).

btw, you missed the 8.5kish deal on hs18 for the Spice Mi425

Not very impressed thus far.

Not looking to purchase.
Just scouting out my options.

Nt only after sales service and warranty...the phones have no support...no ROMs...no rooting tips...will get no OS updates....

In the sub 15k market...the Orange San Francisco II/ZTE CRESCENT is a very good option...i got it at 9.5 k via ktd...currently available at 10.5k via ktd..plus has awesome forum Support ...

3.3 inches? That's around the size of X10 Pro Mini. :/

The problem is that it doesn't bring anything very new to the table over the previous Blade.

Right now I'm leaning towards the Mi-500 as a future purchase, but not without trying it out first.

@Marun said that Duos phones are way better than Spice ones, I want him to elaborate on that....

I dunno, I somehow prefer to experience Android on a screen bigger than 3.5 inches.

Here's some enlightenment for you.
The community has made Spice Mi 410 a great success.
We have 100% working ICS (AOKP & CM9) & MIUIv4 ports too besides CM7 and MIUI GB. The phone I bought came with Froyo!
Check out the number of ROMs we have. Mokee, LewaOS, not to mention a number of MIUI ports I have myself made.
