    You need to check out Lenovo 770P. Awesome device with 2 days back up (3500mAH battery),1.2 Ghz dual core and 1 GB Ram, excellent camera and good screen. Paid 13500.00 and extremely happy with the performance. Sadly, Lenovo seems to be poor at marketing their wares.

    The only problem is that most of them do not sync with the bands of data that the US uses so one only gets EDGE (very, very slow data) and are not very useable here. When are the makers going to include the bands used in the US or the US is going to use only the bands of the foreign phones?

    Only domestic brands? How about Samsung Galaxy Grand or Galaxy Win?

      unfortunately Samsung lost on the Specs and Value Front, so we couldn’t include the same! Galaxy GRAND is now OLD and GRAND Quattro had no comparable specs…
