    Re: Top Android based 5inch display smartphones

    How about talking about a smartphone just bit lesser than 5inch but very good and budget phone? Yes, I'am having a 4.3" Android ICS running phone which is having very good / smooth touch with 1GHz processor and 512MB RAM. It is Karbonn A18 which costs just Rs. 9,300/-. It has a great look, design, various useful features, supports 3G, wiFi, 2G, GPs, etc. I think compared to above costlier phones, it is not at all bad if we need a budget phone. have a look:


    Not just this much, you also get 5 megapixel primary camera with Auto LED Flash and 1.3 megapixel secondary camera for making video calls.

    Re: Top Android based 5inch display smartphones

    Since we are also including 4.7 Inch Screen phones, I would like to point out one great phone in this category - LG Optimus G. In a world dominated by likes of S3 and HTC, LG smartphones seem to be silent performers - they have the best specs, best feature sets and best performance that can match the best in class. I mean, just look at the Optimus G specs and features - it has everything that a user may need.

    I think the marketing department of LG should get more active and tell users more about their phones. I do not understand why they are so circumspect - as if they are afraid of something!

    Also, something that came up on my Facebook wall that I would like to share here - a contest by LG where you can win free LG Optimus G smartphones! Since I cannot post links here, you may try to find it on the LG India official Facebook page.
