4. The phone for the Show Off

iPhone 4 is the phone which runs on iOS (operating system), has LED backlit screen, IPS TFT, capacitive touchscreen which is 3.5 inches in size and is also known as the best touchscreen found in any phone.

It also has a 5 megapixel camera with an LED flash and a front camera as well. It is also capable of video calling but only over Wi-Fi.

The reason why I have called the iPhone 4 as the show off phone is because many users in India are not too aware of how to utilise its features and capabilities. Many may not like this, but it is true.

Another reason why I call this a show off is because 80% of the apps which are required by the people are paid which is the exact opposite of Android.

That is why I and most of the people prefer Android to an iPhone.

5. The phone for the Multi Tasker

Before 2008, almost 80% of people in India were using Nokia's Symbian OS. Many at that time even did not know that mobiles had an operating system!

Nokia's latest phone E8 has a qwerty keypad, AMOLED capacitive touchscreen, 4" wide and suitable for watching videos and movies. Its 8-megapixel camera capable of recording videos at 720p is quite amazing.

It is also quite suitable for using social networking sites like Facebook because of its high quality keypad. The phone is quite heavy with a bad UI. The browser is not up to the mark and complicated to use.

The worst thing about Nokia phones is that they have a very limited range of apps and connecting to a Wi-Fi network all by yourself takes a getting.
