It would not be wrong if 2012 is called the year of Android devices, because this was the year when a large number of android powered devices were launched by some Indian which had features to compete with high end devices. This all created a chaos and confused the buyer that which phone he needs to buy. Don't worry, we have come up with a list of Android phones to suit every budget.
On the foot steps of the launch event of Samsung Galaxy S4 in India, I got a chance to put my hands on to the flagship device. The device has almost same dimensions as seen on Galaxy S3, despite the fact that the display is a bit larger than the S3.
The Karbonn A5+ is an upgraded version of Karbonn A5 and the only difference as compared to its predecessor is that the A5+ comes powered by 1GHz processor and with a 3MP rear camera. The A5+ is also cheaper than the A5 handset.
