I would suggest getting either the S2 or the Note.
I would also suggest waiting for the launch of HTC One S if you can wait.
Sony Xperia S is apparently a great phone. Not officially launched I think. Grey market price is around 32K I heard. I hear stories about anomaly in display colors and poor camera shots because of excessive compression by the processor. Check the reviews and decide on this one. I was considering this one before I switch my focus on One X.
Stay away from RAZR because of the display and of course Motorola branding.
Galaxy Nexus is also a very good option. 26K in grey market I heard. Get it over S2/Note if camera is not a priority.
If you can wait, wait for the launch of S3 in the Indian market. That should result in HTC and Sony devices getting significant price cuts.

----------

HTC Desire and Galaxy S. Galaxy S is of course the superior phone but HTC Desire is a better built device. Decision is for yours to make!

Galaxy S is getting a software update from Samsung. It's not ICS but it is still better than what HTC Desire would have today from the company.

Thanks for really quick reply :)Decided to reject note because of the size. I dont think I want to use that big phone. Yes Xperia S is 31000 officially available now (pre book) But have to wait for the review.One X is great phone but I think it will be out of my budget :( One S will be good but dont know how much is the wait. Galaxy Nexus is just 23K which is steal thats why its in my list. For me 5 MP is enough can live with it. And lots of custom rom support for it.Can wait for SIII but I am sure it will be above 35K anyways lets hope for price cut will save me few thousand rupees.

HTC Sensation anyday....@22k it is a steal.moto Atrix 2 is also a good buy.Hope if ur budget is 30k then u dont have to mandatorily touch 30k. The incremental value difference is sometimes very very less with increasing price.

because of new buttons and ICS, I would suggest for HTC one S definitely.S2 is now an old phone OR U can wait for s3 but price may be on higher side.

if you are getting the galaxy nexus for 24, i think you should go for it. no other deal comes as close to it. stock android. faster updates. and supported by google!
