AS im regular reader of this thread...though dont post comment regularly cause iam not expart like FAKRUL..I found most people hesitate which model to buy(mostly among samsung, nokia,SE) n facing many problems after purchase..
suggestion before purchase::::
1st dilemma whether to chose android or symbian..
no doubt android is far better than symbian n best.if u like different apps,games,,,android is only option.bt as android is more sophisticated n enriched, it consume more battery power than symbian.
2nd thing keep in mind u never get everything in ur phone because of budget constraints.so i categorise choice in 4 types
1.sound n camera preference: if u prefer better sound quality n camera ONLY, go for nokia c6-01 or se mini then samsung galaxy mini or gio cause nokia n se will give better quality in same price then samsng.where samsung give u 3.2mp, nokia n se provide 5 mp with flash in same price.
2.apps n games preference:this preference is important cause after someday phone will be boring to use. if u prefer apps to make ur smartphone experience more enjoyable n dynamic, no doubt android is only option ,,this means nokia is out of da list,,as it always use symbian which has limited apps availability ..in dis case u can chose among samsung galaxy mini,gio,ace, HTC wildfire n SE mini or mini pro.
3.good configuration preference
(display,processor,connectivity): it is too easy to say that da more u add in ur budget the more u get.bt nokia is slightly ahead than others(applicable only 4 mid range phone like c5-03 or c6)
4.all 1,2 n 3: if u choose this category which means u shouldnt have any budget constraints. so my suggestion is go for samsung galaxy s ll(best phone)or tab, htc desire,se x10 or arc, lg optimus 3d at last nokia e7 or N8 cause symbian still has many lacking(pls dont think im against symbian,i just provide my experience)
5.both 1 n 2 :u can chose samsung galaxy mini gio(for limited budget)galaxy ace is recommended,htc n se mini pro..
NOTE:choice can be on other aspect depend on individual preference.
now some critical issue i want to let u know
1.android smartphone give u less battery backup than symbian cause android is more sophisticated n use more internal resources.
2.nokia n samsung will give u better after purchase performance than sonyericsion .if u go through the opinion of SE(mini or mini pro) u will find some basic problems.bt se arc or x10 is fantastic.
3.if u chose to buy android smartphone bt with limited budget go for samsung then htc.
4.nokia will provide u overall good performance except its using platform(symbian)
all this information is according to my experience n research & this may not match with others.i hope this info will be helpful for who r going to buy a new smartphone.

Android has some great apps and games but it really drains the battery very fast .. android is poor in terms of battery life. whereas nokia handsets have a great battery life but not many apps are available in nokia. I personally like listening to songs and i need long battery life for that so i'll go with nokia..

3.2" display is small in todays smart phone market. 256 MB RAM is a good move. Does it support Multi touch? ( Symbin Anna support multi touch).
