iPhone 5

The latest version of the iPhone has a larger screen, is thinner and lighter, has improved camera, Maps in iOS 6, better battery life and ear buds. So Apple’s newest smartphone looks pretty, but a host of cutting-edge mobile tech is absent. It’s got a larger screen, a superb new design and generally all the moves required to make it into a worthy evolution. Price: Starts from Rs 45,500.

Nokia Lumia 920:

Though the Nokia Lumia 920 isn’t a groundbreaking, game-changing device; it’s a refreshed Lumia 900 with a newer operating system and some additional power. Nokia has produced a solid, well-built device which does the job you’d expect of a smartphone, without any lag. You may put off with the size, weight and high price tag of the Lumia 920, but it manages to keep pace with other big hitters such as the iPhone 5, Samsung Galaxy S3 and HTC One X+.
Expected Price: Rs 32,000.

HTC Windows Phone 8X

[image_library_tag 676/71676, border=”0″ align=”right” hspace=”4″ vspace=”4″ ,default]

As its name suggests, this is HTC’s first Windows Phone 8 handset – we’ll just call it the HTC 8X from now on. On the surface, Windows Phone 8 is only a mildly tweaked version of Microsoft’s slick mobile operating system, but there have been quite a few changes underneath. The OS now supports dual-core processors, such as HTC 8X’s 1.5 GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4, as well as high screen resolutions; the HTC 8X has a 720×1,280-pixel display. It’s a slim and light phone, but doesn’t quite have the class of handsets such as the Nokia Lumia 800 and the new Windows Phone 8-based Nokia Lumia 920. Expected Price: Rs 35,000
