Ideal for those who want functionality of smartphones and tablets in one device.

We have selected five smartphones under Rs 35,000 with 6-inch to 7-inch screens (devices with 7-inch or bigger screens are tablets).

While selecting these, we have given due attention to other features like hardware and software, as well.

Also, we have listed the phones as per their prices (descending order) and not on their merits.

Sony Xperia Z Ultra
Price: Rs 34,000

The best thing about the Z Ultra is that it is waterproof as well as dust proof. It has a huge 6.4-inch full HD resolution display as well. And if you think it would be quite difficult to handle it thing again -- it is just 6.5 mm thin and weighs only 212 grams (many 5.5-inch devices weigh even the same).

Sony Xperia Z Ultra has even very powerful hardware.

To start with, it comes with the powerful quad-core 2.2 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 MSM8974 System-on-Chip which is paired with Adreno 330 graphics chip clocked at 450 Mhz.

To make the best of this SoC, Sony has fitted 2 GB RAM in the phablet.

Besides, this handset has Android 4.2 Jelly Bean operating system, 8 megapixel rear camera, 2 megapixel front camera, 16 GB internal storage, 64 GB expandable storage slot, and a 3050 mAh battery promising 14 hours 3G talktime.

Nokia Lumia 1320
Price: Rs 24,000

The Lumia 1320 comes with a humongous 6-inch display screen. Its IPS LCD display has high definition (1280x720 pixels) resolution. This means that its display bears 245 pixels per-inch pixel density which ofcourse will allow it to provide clearer text as well as images.

Nokia has implemented the ClearBlack technology and Sunlight readability enhancements to make its screen visible even under the sun.

Moreover, the Lumia 1320's display has Corning Gorilla Glass 3 coating which would give it better protection from wear-tear than those who do not have it. Its display has TrueColor 24-bit panel for best colour reproduction.

Lumia 1320 has a 5 megapixel camera at the back with f/2.4 aperture that is expected to click great quality images and to record 1080p HD videos. There is a 0.3MP front facing camera in its front that claims to be able to capture images in 640x480 pixel resolution.

It is powered by a dual-core 1.7 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 mobile processor and Adreno 305 graphics.

Nokia has armed the Lumia 1320 with 1 GB RAM and 8 GB on-board storage along with a 64 GB memory card slot.
