From Lava International, comes the Iris Pro 30, designed with the very Apple-esque theme ‘Art meets Smart’. Weighing a mere 114 grams, Lava calls it the lightest smartphone in its screen size category in India. That screen itself is a 4.7-inch IPS Sharp display and is supported by a 1.2GHz quad-core processor. In the 7.5mm-thick body, you will also find a 2000mAh battery with CABC technology which should last 30 per cent more than conventional batteries, an eight-MP primary autofocus camera and a three-MP front-facing camera.
Karbonn Titanium X (Rs 16,490)
The Titanium X is neither made from titanium nor from carbon, but is a good looking blend of a 5-inch capacitative touchscreen with a plastic body. Inside you will find a 1.5GHz Quad Core processor supported by a 1GB RAM. While the 2300mAh battery should give you good talk time, the internal storage of 16GB can be expanded up to 32GB. Running Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, the phone has a 13-MP primary camera with autofocus and dual flash capable of full HD recording, while on the front there is a 5-MP camera.

On the back you will find a 13-MP autofocus camera and on the front a five-MP camera for those video calls. Running Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean, the dual-SIM phone comes with 16GB of internal storage and 5GB of free cloud memory.
