So, what are the good options for Android smartphones in Rs. 15-20K price range?

I know that an existing thread is going on. But this is probably a segment that is the most important for potential Android buyers. Someone asked me which smartphone to buy below Rs. 20K. His primary need is music and browsing. I need suggestions!

Samsung Galaxy R if he is going to use the stock ROM. Dual Core Tegra, 5MP Camera, 4.2" S-LCD Screen, 1GB RAM.LG Optimus 2x if he is willing to mod/install custom ROM's. Same processor 8MP Camera with 1080p recording, 512mb RAM.Is android a necessity? Nokia's Lumia 710 and Samsung Omnia W are also pretty good choices.

galaxy R is the best option.

Galaxy R looks nice. Thanks!

----------

Android is sort of preferred because of the apps and Google products and services. I am not sure how many people would like Bing powered services with most Google apps missing!

well yeah. i need my official google apps. microsoft might have office or whatever. for me google maps and other google apps are necessary. also IE9 might be awesome or not but it's not webkit and that means that most mobile web apps would not really work on it.

Whatever android phone he wants to buy but it should have a good battery life for the primary usage he wants.

Defy would be a weird purchase considering the requirement....and you should not ignore the screwed up software support that it received lately.
