It depends on what kind of smartphone you want, Touchscreen or non touchscreen. I suggest you go for nokia 5230. Its screen is huge and its price is about 7400 INR. This phone has got one of the best music hardware in nokia. Its screen resolution is very very good to watch movies and play games. Internet is too good. Its a smartphone after all. No phone in its range can provide this much. I suggested this phone to one of my friends and he is still grateful to me. I suggest you to read the whole review of nokia 5230 by gsmarena. Believe me, its the best for your budget. Tell me what you think after reading the official review of this site.
i'm inloooooooooooooooooove with this phone...i have it since march and i never find another cellphone like this,is the best!!!!!!!!
I have bought it 11 month ago. I have took it to Nokia Care 12 time. I sent it to Delhi, Noki head office 4 time. It hang once most time. But I Love this phone. I use 4GB card. It works well. The sound quality is better than the best. Mobil at this low cost is best. I think to buy a Nokia smart phone after few days. I request to Mr. Barua from Aasam and other to suggest me bes smart phone at 7000.

I used the same software as you have mentioned. Pdf files are best opened in smartphones which has a larger ram capacity. This phone somehow manages but it does fail to open some complex pdf files irrespective of the file size.

Ur information is very accurate & to-the-point. I just download "any video converter" frm download.com and then make the setting u've told.
It's a joy to watch videos in my mobile now! Thanx a lot!
By the way, can u tell me frm where I can get a good pdf reader for my 5130xm? I have an application called 'MobilePdf' , but its performance is inconsistent. Sometimes it can open 300kb pdf file but sometimes it fails to open 80kb size files.
Can u help me in this topic? I've searched many sites in google without any help!
Waiting for ur reply...
Rajat, 17 Jun 2010Hi Sbdevilmind, Thanx a lot for ur information. Now plz tell me which software u use to con... moreAt first i used to use a very complex converter named 'mediacoder'. But now i found a converter which is much easier to use and also easier to get. Go to www.download.com. Search for 'any video converter'. In the results, search for the exact same name. Download this 'any video converter' and install in your computer. Then select container as mp4, video codec as 'divx', audio codec as 'aac', video bitrate as 350, audio bitrate as 160, frame rate as 15. Convert the video and then play it on your mobile. Tip: when you play a video, let it play for 3 seconds and then press 'pause', then do fullscreen, then press 'previous'. Doing this will allow the mobile to relax and thus play the video very smoothly. And never play a video in the background. It might hang your mobile.

Although they won't play on this device but at least i can transfer it to my pc and then watch it there or convert them to play on my 5130. For more details, reply.

Anonymous, 16 Jun 2010Hi Sbdevilmind, plz tell me frm which site I can download good quality .mp4 videos or movies... moreOh i forgot to mention the video download sites. Although i don't know many cause i don't download videos from net which are nokia 5130 compatible. They just sucks. Anyways, go to www.celltube.mobi where you can download youtube videos converted to play on mobiles. You will get a choice of 3gp HQ or 3gp or mp4. They are of different file sizes i.e of different qualities. For movies, go to www.movies4mobile.com. You can get other free sites from google. Try it.
Anonymous, 16 Jun 2010Hi Sbdevilmind, plz tell me frm which site I can download good quality .mp4 videos or movies... moreHi. Actually there are sites from which you can download movies and videos. But mind you that they will not be of good quality. Its better to get some DVD or CD with movies and then convert them to compatible formats. There is no size limit of videos in this mobile. But there is a limit of what bitrate you apply to your videos while conversion. Video bitrate ranging from 300 to 500 kbps is smoothly playbale on this device. You guys have no idea how excellent and sharp a video looks when it is converted properly. It took me months to get the right software and the right settings. I had to figure them all by myself. For more details, reply.
