Hi Vikram,

According to all the specifications that you mentioned, I would recommend two options for you:

- Karbonn Titanium S5

- Asus Zenfone 5


Why Karbonn Titanium S5 ?

Karbonn Titanium S5 is powered with Qualcomm Snap Dragon Quad Core Processor with Speed 1.2 GHz It has a chip with four independent units to perform different tasks together. You can seamlessly switch from app to app, enjoy breathtaking download speeds & play the hottest games. S5 is a Dual SIM Android Phone, SIM 1 Supports 3G & SIM2 support 2G Network. Titanium S5 has 1 GB RAM and 4GB of ROM. It has an expandable memory up to 32 GB. S5 comes with 8.0 Mega Pixel Auto Focus Camera with powerful flash light that automatically adjusts the focus while clicking image and exposure to ensure beautiful pictures of human subjects. Also it has 2 MP front camera for video calling. Another attractive feature is the Proximity Sensor, while on call and you bring the device near your ear, Proximity Sensor detects it and can turn off the screen to avoid accidental touch of the screen by ear. It has Acceleration Sensor too which sense the tilting direction of your phone and auto rotates the screen according to the direction to which you have tilted the phone. The Light Sensor in this phone automatically adjusts the brightness of the screen back-light both to improve battery life and make it easier to see the screen. With your price range, Titanium S5 at a price of 7,100 is a good steal.


Why Asus Zenfone 5 ?

The HD display of Asus Zenfone 5 is good enough for a regular phone user. And the 5-inch IPS panel on the ZenFone is among the best HD displays around. The viewing angles are good too. While the phone, like most other Androids, is not very loud when you are making a call, the speakers are really loud. The phone also comes with HD audio recording, which is udsed successfully to create a SoundCloud. While the phone is sadly not on the latest Android version, but it comes with the option to upgrade. It is slick, stylish and over all quite functional. Asus has redesigned even the icons for the ZenFone and while they look good, you have to fight a lot of muscle memory to find and recognize some of the most used apps. Smartphone cameras are traditionally bad for shooting indoors, but the ZenFone comes with a low-light Owl mode. The option to shift to this mode is presented whenever you are trying to shoot in low light. The results are stunning. All pictures shot in this mode are bright, in fact all photos shot with the phone are brighter than normal. The 2000 mAh battery is not one of the strong points of this phone. It will last you a full working day, but will be in the red if you have to put in overtime or go for an after-office dinner. You can get much more out of the battery if you are careful about the apps running in the background. At a price of 9,999, ZenFone 5 is a great proposition for buyers in countries like India. The phone has all the features an average user would want and much more, while not costing the earth. Asus ZenFone 5 is strongly recommended for buyers like you who need a stylish phone with a great camera and dependable performance.
