GOTY 2010 - Low End Mobiles (Dual SIM)

In the last GOTY for mobile phones we showcased our budget Single SIM GSM handsets and it’s time to get to the next and final category for mobile handsets – Low End Dual SIM Handsets. We’ve seen, very literally, hundreds of new models that we refer to as Chinese Mobiles launched in India over the last couple of years. Of course now they’ve got better branding with companies like Micromax, Intex, Wyncomm, Videocon and many many more. But without further ado, here are our picks for 2010’s top Dual SIM handsets in the low budget segment.

Micromax Q7 – Best in Class
The Q7 is, simply put, a neatly designed handset. It’s designed to be comfortable to operate from typing to navigation with its BlackBerry-esque trackball. It’s loaded up with social networking options like Facebook and Nimbuzz for chatting through multiple accounts. The handset also performs quite well in the multimedia department. One more key factor that adds a little more value to this handset is Wi-Fi connectivity.

Spice M-7070 – First Runner Up
Spice’s M-7070’s main USP is its 5MP autofocus camera that comes with some pretty high-end features at its low price. These settings include Face detection and anti-shake which do tend to make the device stand out in this segment. On the whole, the device is quite well designed with a large keypad and offers users a chance to flex their photography skills without hurting their bank accounts. Spice has also thrown in quite a few handy applications for all purposes.
