> In reply to Robin @ 2012-09-20 03:52 from t1$E - click to readit is coming soon if you are in the US. the gsmarena specs say that it is not a gsm phone and is available only through boost mobile. the price of the phone in the US is the same as the low power galaxy chat here, so I don't think that the rush is coming to India and if it will come to India then it will be sold at a much higher rate. The specs of the phone are such that it will cost more than 14k in India and 150USD is around 8100 INR. Most phones, tablets and laptops cost much less in the USA than any other country. there have been many phones like this such as the galaxy prevail.

well guys , we have the benchmarks for galaxy chat . it literally throws tipo and explorer out of the window

Quadrant Standard - 1771
AnTuTu - 3365
NenaMark 2 - 25.3

i am impressed by the gpu performance , scores for tipo are antutu - 2500 and for nenamark 2 - 15.3

the gpu in galaxy chat is equal to adreno 205 / mali 400 mp

now i think anyone looking for smartphone in this range should wait for galaxy y 2 - the performance is awesome , add that you get GLONASS and Compass sensor over tipo and explorer .

just hope that galaxy y 2 does not have that crappy resolution like chat . if they can give hvga resolution with good 3.2 touch screen with battery similar to tipo i am sold.
source for benchmaks is p ho on e ar ena . com

> In reply to WWW @ 2012-09-19 15:56 from PS69 - click to readMINI PRO has very bad battery. My cousin is using one now and she is very disappointed with it. She only use it for texting and a little call. But she still need to charge it twice daily. And if she plays games, she needs to charge 3 or 4 times daily.

Also, when playing games like temple run, when she exit, the phone slows down and takes time before returning to being fluid. She didn't even upgrade it to ics since once it is upgraded to ics, the speed decrease.

> In reply to dp @ 2012-09-19 18:27 from v{S% - click to readIf you love watching youtube videos, go for sony or samsung. LG has a bad display while htc is slow.

I always watch videos on youtube on my wave 525. The speed of the phone might not be that good but it has a good display and no play back issue as well as long battery back-up.

Go for devices with 16M color if you always watch videos. 256k is not really that good in watching videos for a long time. That is based on my experience.

> In reply to @rana @ 2012-09-19 13:11 from U@NI - click to readif you will read other comments then you will gind that the live with walkman is the best for you. earlier people complained that ICS is slow on the lww, but as you can see in the other comments, there has been an ics fix which has made it smooth, so that will be the best phone in your price range. but first you should verify about the ics fix because it is important if you want to upgrade the lww to ics. alternatively you can see other brands such as htc or lg. lg has the optimus l5 in this range and it has a 4 inch screen and ics although the processor is only 800mhz and some people say that it is not very smooth. htc has the desire c which has a 3.5 inch screen and beats audio along with ics but the processor is only 600mhz. you should watch video reviews of all these phones on youtube and then decide.
