But considering the obvious mid-range specifications, we think the Express will be priced around Rs. 20,000. For this price range, you can consider the Sony Xperia P, or the HTC Desire SV (dual-SIM). If you are looking for alternatives that don’t run on Android, you can take a look at the HTC Windows Phone 8S, which is priced under the Rs. 20,000 price point.
