Nokia Lumia, Apple iPhone 4S and Motorola RAZR arrive in India - read the full textSmartphone enthusiasts in India are in for one hell of a time, as three of the most anticipated smartphone from the top three platforms have landed on the shores of the sub-continent. First up is the Nokia Lumia series, which was launched in India today with a grand event. Considering the...


Sort by:

Just look at those dumbasses saying that Front Cam is useless as they dont do 3G video calls, etc. And Lumia 800 is okay without having a secondary cam.

Assholes like these have never heard of Skype or other VoIP who support video calls via WiFi too. Moreover, WP7 has a very limited developer support and competing with droids of the same price range like HTC Sensation & Galaxy SII is gonna be very tough for Lumia.

Also, the AMOLED unit on Nokia is way behind when compared to Samsung's SUPER AMOLED & SUPER AMOLED+.

Currently, Galaxy SII has eaten into the market share and is ahead of the competition by a mile!!!! My choice would be the Galaxy SII.

iPhone 4S has a better camera than SII but it's way too expensive which puts it out of the competition. Personally, owning an iTouch, I really don't find iOS as good as Android!

i often use front camera on my cel for 3g video calls (nokia 5610)
n second thing they come handy for taking few selfphotographs
2mpx camera will hardly cost $5 more but u can expect it from buyer who is selling a handset at &300+ price bracket
simply u dont use the front cam it doesn't mean there is no use of it.

When was the last time ANYONE's ever used a front cam apart from FaceTime users on iPhone?

Front cams on phones are like those little accessories on vacuum cleaners - no one uses it but everyone wants plenty in the one they buy, just for the heck of it.

Security purposes? You must be joking...face-unlock was the worst tech idea since Google Buzz, and it was hacked in days using a photo!
And remote tracking software don't use the front cam.

In short, no one needs a front camera; so pls stop complaining as if your phone wouldn't work without one!

Where's the front cam? Are you joking Nokia? It's flagship smartphone? I think front cam must be integrate in a smartphone for not only video call but security purpose also (e.g. Face detection, Remote Phone Tracker etc.).

a) its a Motorola and
b) we're talking about India here.

Indians don't buy moto. Indians like Nokia.
Its as simple as that.

When Nokia was already half dying and all, India was among the countries where Nokia was still the No.1 phone. And still is.

And it has nothing to do with pricing either - Indians pay 3-times as much as Americans for iPhones so its not like we can't afford $600 phones.

And quite frankly no one cares about technical specs (except geeks).
All people want are a good phone with a silky smooth UI, good set of features and colorful interchangable covers (Yes, Indians like that a lot!).

The Lumia 710 wins here.

Apple always creates an independent platform isolating from others.

iPad 2 has excellent apps like garageband , iWork-apps and many useful productive apps.
So if u are musician iPad 2 definitely good choice which is better battery than galaxy tab or xoom.

iWork is another huge thing for Mac users who use iWork instead of power points (i bet iWork is used rarely in India btw i use windows PC)

Problem with galaxy tab is its highly priced while iPad is priced like 4k more than original price.

Samsung is known to have "worst support" and myself experienced it with galaxy s2.
my friend was new to android and we both went to samsung store to ask some questions about it (so that i can buy one too) and none of the people working there knows nothing not even single bit.
they know more about symbian than android lol.

and updates never reach good always need to install illegally or from forum-posted-links.

So support is very very bad. Instead i prefer to buy iPad 2 or Kindle Fire.

Customizations in android as far as know are live wallpapers and widgets.

i prefer windows 7 UI (metro style) lot better instead of android widgets.

ICS supports hardware acceleration for UI.
Already confirmed
