  1. Hi Abhishek, How R U!
    Could U please tell me some good quad core android phones in 20k range. As of now my choices are:-
    Micromax canvas doodle 2
    Micromax canvas 4
    Sony xperia C
    Gionee Elite 6.

    Right now I am using Micromax canvas 2(A110). I want to upgrade to a quad core phone. Ur help will be much appreciated. Thank U! If U have any other suggestions please tell me.

  2. Canvas doodle 2 is good option if you want a bigger display.
    Canvas 4 is decent in performance, but has 720p display.
    Xperia C is going to be average performer – but you can expect a better after sales support as it is from Sony.
    Elife E6 is has the best display out of all – but it has no so good gaming performance but applications and day to day usage is satisfactory with some minimal UI lag.

    Let me know ur requirements if this does not answer ur question about the best phone, you can take the decision as per the points I have mentioned above.

  3. Thank U Abhishek! I am looking for bigger display phone like “canvas doodle 2”. Do U have any other suggestions in the 20k price range apart from the models I mentioned? My main requirements are:
    1. Bigger display(5″ inch or more).
    2. Quad core processor.
    3. Minimum 1GB Ram.
    4. Lag free model which can play high end games well.
    5. HD or FHD screen with good PPI.
    Thank U! Also give me tips on what to mainly check before buying a android phone.

  4. Hai sir.. i just went through the local shops.. xperia is sold like hot cakes out of stock.. i decided to own this ..confusion b /n this and gionee E6… as per brand value and after sales sony better but design and looks E 6 is damn good.. please suggest me.. my main usage towards net.. not a gamer… net and entertainment and cam and battery

  5. As per your usage requirements, you can select E6 it will be a great device for you. But E6 is not for too heavy games, but can handle casual games easily.

  6. You can opt for the xolo q2000 which has been launched today, you can also opt for Lenovo K900, lenovo P780 or Huawei Ascend mate or even samsung galaxy mega.

    go for samsung or huawei if you want better after sales support or else if you want a better gaming device then go for canvas doodle 2 or you can also wait for Gionee Gpad G3 it will be also a great device, will get launched in few weeks.
