I am planning to get a new phone, an android, currently I am using a Curve 9520. Can you guys suggest a good Android phone for me? I was leaning towards the Sola, but it has less RAM and all and HTC phones are getting bad reviews...Budget can go till 20k.

If looks are not a criteria for you, then Motorola Atrix 2 is retailing for 17k. You can also think of Xperia Go with the added benefit of being a rugged phone.

I saw the xperia Go, really sluggish with ICS.I like the Atrix 2 though!x720,I might end up rooting the phone to increase the RAM and such things, so in the end warranty might make a difference.... what if I unroot the phone later will the warranty still apply?

Hmm, depends on the company and the phone. So, I really dunno whether companies have a method detecting a device that had been rooted previously. Samsung used to be pretty cool about this stuff, but with every new release they make it harder to remove traces from a previously modded phone.If you can love without warranty , get the US version of the ONE S for 20k. Do not get the Indian edition.Also, I guess, no ones knows moto's position on India these days !

There was one near to my house, it closed down. Can't say if it was random or not. Motorola wasn't known for stellar service earlier as well, if it becomes worse, then it will be a bad scenario.

I'd recommend S over P. Better Camera, Better Processor+GPU, Much better Camera. Without warranty price is pretty close to 20k.

its also been added to the AOSP project as an experiment so you will (unofficially at least) get updates to the latest android version for a longer time.

Edit: do you have an ebay account, they have sent coupons to almost everyone this week:



Even the Galaxy Nexus is not a bad buy at this price: http://www.ebay.in/itm/SAMSUNG-GALAXY-GOOGLE-NEXUS-S-i9250-ANDROID-4-0-SMARTPHONE-/281018102985?pt=IN_Mobile_Phones&hash=item416dfbf4c9#ht_7492wt_1002

Yes he is. And Moto is known for ditching their phones as far as updates are concerned. Hope you know that the Atrix 2 will not be getting JB update, which sucks.They also ditched the promised ICS updates to their dual core flagships like Atrix and Photon.Not a good idea to go for Moto after seeing their history. They're pretty much carrier based (Sprint and Verizon esp.) OEMs now.
