Windows Based Mobiles Phones In India : Mid Range Phones Reviews and Prices

Choosing a mobile phone can be a big task specially if you are a gadget freak. I need to purchase one new mobile (mid range segment phone) for one of my relative and I have zeroed on windows based mobiles. Please don't ask why I have chosen windows mobile over android (iOS is out of budget), as I have my own reasons. I have been myself using android mobile for quite a long time and trust me it works good only in phones with high processing power.

Android is not matured enough for mid segment phones. Running Android OS on a 600 Mhz ain't gonna work good. For some days, you will just love android os but after some time you will definitely notice the delay/lag!

What I am looking at is a mobile phone in range of 15-16K (INR), with all necessary features. I am not sure whether any android mobile (with 1 GHz processor + good ram) in this range. Please let me know if you know of any such option. Anyways, what I am left with is Windows Based Mobiles Phones.

I started exploring these windows mobiles phones. Below is a list of best options for windows mobile in India (along with the prices). I do not have any restriction that I won't be purchasing online or something, infact I am planning to buy this mobile in some good online deal only.
Windows Mobile in India

Nokia Lumia 800

This is the costliest mobile among the nokia lumia mobiles. This phone has made great buzz in the market and it is giving good competition to android mobiles as well.
  • Camera is good : 8Mp, Geo Tagging, Dual LED Flash,
  • 3.7 inch touchscreen, 1.4 Ghz processor, 512 MB Ram
  • Adreno 205 GPU : Great for gaming.
  • HD Video Recording
  • Clearblack technology.
  • 13 hrs talktime in 2G
  • Very fast processing and internet surfing.
  • Priced around 23K, this is an expensive mobile. People will prefer android mobiles as compared to this phone.

Nokia Lumia 710

Mid range budget phone worth 15K having features just like its higher range nokia lumia 800. Its a good phone if you have a mid range budget.
  • 5MP Camera with Carl Ziess Lens.
  • 1.4 GHz Qualcomm Scorpion Processor, Adreno 205 GPU 
  • Clearblack screen technology, scratch resistent screen.
  • Video Recording offers good resolution and colors, bit rate is quite high.
  • 8gb on board storage (At this price, it is excellent).
  • Free life-time voice guided navigation. 
  • Disappointing battery life. Turning off multi-tasking may improve the battery life, but it isn’t the most pleasing option. With moderate usage, it may not even last a full day.
  • Disastrous audio quality
  • The other cons include the limitations of Windows Phone OS. 
  • No expandable storage, no Bluetooth file transfer, no DivX/XviD support out of the box, over-dependence on Zune.

Nokia Lumia 610

This is supposed to be a budget phone, but I guess its a mid range phone only costing about 13K in Indian market. You can consider this phone as well if you are looking for a windows based mobile phones.
  • Priced at 12380 on flipkart, this is a good option if you are considering windows mobile.
  • 800 MHz Processor
  • 5 MP Primary Camera
  • Adreno 200 graphics
  • 256 MB Ram which is less as compared to other options.
  • No external memory card support
  • Upgrade to WP8 - It will get WP7.8 which will have new start screen and all the non-hardware related features, but not WP8.

HTC Radar

This phone is from HTC (which is really doing great for android segment phones). There are lots of reasons, I am planning for this phones. This phone looks amazing, very clean finish. 

  • 3.8 inch LCD Screen (as compared to lumia 3.7 inch). This screen is very clear and looks just awesome indoors.
  • Capacitive touch (same as other phones)
  • Looks are pretty good when compared to plastic body of lumia 710.
  • Price of Rs 15799 as on flipkart. I checked some of the local shops in Delhi, and I was quoted Rs 24000. 
  • Processing power of 1 GHZ (many android mobiles are 600-800 Mhz in this range).
  • Secondary Camera for video call.
  • Overall this phone is as fast as Nokia Lumia phones but the looks are much better.
  • Ram of just 512 MB.
  • Less preinstalled apps like Nokia Drive, Nokia Maps etc.
  • Windows Marketplace have less apps as compared to Android.
The obvious choice among the above is HTC Radar (considering all the features and the price of these mobiles phones in India). If you are having same doubts, then check some of the compiled videos below. It will help you to zero in on some option.
