Near field communication (NFC) is a set of standards for smartphones and similar devices to establish radio communication with each other by touching them together or bringing them into proximity, usually no more than a few inches. So let’s take a look at some of the smartphones available in the Rs. 20,000 price bracket and also support NFC.

Huawei Ascend G6 comes with a 1.2 Ghz quad core snapdragon 200 processor which is nothing great as other lower price phones also pack in the same amount of heat. Adreno 305 GPU is mated with the processor to handle the graphics department. The display is a 4.5 inch qHD with a resolution of 940 x 540 pixels. The internal storage is 4 GB which is again no big deal but the phone has a micro SD card slot expandable to 32 GB.

Ascend G6 sports an 8 MP rear camera which is average but the impressive part is the 5 MP front camera which takes excellent pics. Huawei Ascend G6 has a 2000 mAh battery which gives a decent backup. The phone comes with Huawei’s own Emotion UI Lite which gets rid of the Android menu and it pastes all the apps on the home menu much like the iOS. The phone is available for Rs.17,370 on Amazon.

The screen supports multi touch up to 4 fingers. Xperia M features 4GB of on-board storage. You can extend this up to 32GB via means of a microSD card.

The phone features a standard set of cameras in a 5MP rear and a VGA front. Although many budget quad core devices costing about the same amount come with 8MP rear cameras, you can expect the 5MP on the Xperia M to be as good (if not better). Some might feel the phone comes with an underpowered battery, rated 1750mAh. However, thanks to the moderate-res screen, the phone might probably take you through one day without much of a hassle. You can avail this phone for a price of Rs.9,999 from Amazon.
