Marketing tactics will tell you that a 1080p Full HD display is a direct descendant from heaven but in practical live there is not an easily discernible difference between HD and Full HD display on a 5 inch display. The difference is determined on the content you view on your display and is more pronounced while engaging in graphic intensive gaming. So for most aspects, HD display will provide you with great quality experience and if you are looking for one in a budget price range, here are a few viable options.

Huawei Ascend D1

Huawei Ascend D1 (Quick Review) arrived a little late in India, but if you are looking for an easily pocket-able phone with IPS LCD display, this might be the answer. The phone derives its power from TI OMAP 4460 chipset (same chipset we have seen in Galaxy Nexus) which houses 2 cores clocked at 1.5 GHz backed by 1 GB RAM and PowerVR SGX540 GPU.

The 8 MP camera at the back is capable of full HD recording and the 1.3 MP camera at the front is also capable of HD video chatting, something which is rare in this price range. Battery capacity is 1800 mAh. Only downside seems to be the Android 4.0 Os which is not as jazzy but will still cut the deal for several “Android 4.0 or Higher” Apps on Playstore. You can buy this phone for Rs. 10,990 from Flipkart.
