  1. Yes 3Gs would be a good one but u’ve opted for the iPhone 4, it is more modified and includes more features, but that’s a lil’ bit costly than the 3Gs. And other than the iPhone if u are opting for Android, u will find phones within 20k.

  2. I am looking for one in the range of 20K. Is iPhone 3Gs a good choice for 19.9K?

      You had asked a similar question in the last issue as well. Before buying a smart phone, you should be aware of the answers of two questions.

      1. Why do you want a particular smart phone?
      2. What is your budget?

      Well, you must be aware of the 2nd question’s answer.
      Regarding, your answer to the first question you should be aware whether you want a smart phone for your needs or as a status symbol.

      If you want it for your needs, please make a checklist of what you want from your smart phone and you will find your answer. If for a status symbol, you already know the answer.
