    Is ur budget 12k(in post) or 13k(in title)?? Please make it clear.

    Also if u can do without cam flash get the LG optimus one. Awesome vfm phone @9k(online)
    else go for the dell phone.

    If u can extend budget to 14k get the galaxy ace a good phone but pathetic battery life, so rooting and installing custom rom may be needed

    Best bet for u wud be to spend 15K and get the motorola Defy. There wud be huge difference in phones below 14.5k and the defy, so if are spending 13k u might as well go tht extra mile.
    Also noted that u want a adobe flash enabled phone. Only the defy supports adobe flash amongst the other phones in ur range.

    There is one more mentionable phone if U are ok wid the spice brand. The spice mi410 @13k has amazing features on paper. As good as a 19k phone. If u are willing to take the risk go for it, and it also supports adobe flash

    @himangshu - If you are ok with Symbian then I can think of Nokia C6 for 11.8k or Nokia C6-01 for 13.3k or Nokia C5-03 for 8.4k, but that is if you are not too finicky about Android.All the prices are from Univercell.in.

    C6-01 has 8MP with 720p video recording capability.C6 has 5MP with VGA video recording & C5-03 has 5MP but without a flash & they all run on S60v9.4.

    I wouldn't advice C6-01 as it may not get the updates that C7 and N8 may get.

    @OP, if you can up the budget just a bit, check Wildfire:S, Galaxy Ace and Nokia C7.
    Samsung Galaxy S3 running cm10.1 nightly, Samsung Omnia W, Thinkpad T430 (Core i5, 8GB RAM, 160GB SSD, 14" 1600x900,9cell battery). Desktop: AMD Athlon X2 7750 BE, 4GB DDR2, 1TB HDD, 2600XT, 19" LCD

    But Symbian doesn't have any versions like Android(2.0, 2.1, 2.2 & so on). C7 & N8 run on Symbian^3 OS which is different from S60. As such Symbian phones don't have extensive 3rd party support which the Androids have..but OP isn't too fussy about OS thats why I suggested those phones.

    Moreover OP's budget is 12k.So shouldn't we recommend him phones under or at that budget? C7 is for 16.4k at Univercell.

    Hey desiibond, does Ace have DivX/Xvid support? If no then can the DivX/Xvid videos be played using 3rd party software in Ace??

    All Symbian^3 devices are getting the future updates planned. and C6 launched later than these phones AFAIK, no reason for a newer phone not to receive updates.

    Thank you all for your suggestions. I am deciding to get Nokia C6-01 as Adobe Flash is not that important.

    ^^ C6-01 being a SYm^3 device has FlashLite 4, its powerful enough for flash content.

    ^^Oops!no idea about SE phones at that budget. All the good phones of SE that I know are all above 20k. May be someone else does in the forum.

    go for C7 instead. Like I said earlier, C6-01 may not get updates like C7 and the extra 0.3" of display on C7 helps a lot.

    ^^ From letsbuy.com using ICICILB code you can get it for 15.5k price.

    A motorola Defy is a better deal, since you'll be getting a Jabra Bluetooth headset and the price after ICICILB discount will be 13.8k, best deal IMO!

    Go for Motorola Defy, it's better than other options (Wildfire S and Galaxy Ace).

    Otherwise consider C6-01. It was released after C7, so I think once the Anna update is available, Nokia will update C6-01 too.

    You would trust an LG Refrigerator, an LG Washing Machine, an LG TV... but not an LG phone?

    I know, most LG phones were crap in the past. They are trying hard to change... I wouldn't recommend any other LG product. I have seen their horrible resistive touch screen phones... pure garbage...

    But LG Optimus One is good. I am not totally satisfied by its touchscreen response, but its still value for money. And its value has increased exponentially because it was sold in multiple countries and now it has an excellent developer community.

    Cheers!
