Super Sexy Smartphones

I’ve been told by quite a few people wishing to buy new high-end handsets, that’s it’s not just the functionality that’s important; looks also play a big part. I have to agree to quite an extent. I mean who wants to walk around with a big bulky handset that does everything but looks like it’s just like it were just a run-of-the-mill, generic device. Elegancy, styling and cutting edge looks are as important in today’s superficial day and age and I say, if you’re paying that much money for it, it had damn well look good! Here’s my list of Super Sexy Smartphones that are loaded with functionality and ooze sex appeal as well. 

Prices included are best prices or Market Operating Prices and may differ depending on your location and dealer.

Sony Ericsson Arc - Rs. 28,499
The Arc is seriously sexy looking handset with its smooth curved rear panel and chromed edges and an all black bezel that blends perfectly with the scratch resistant display. It uses Sony’s Bravia Mobile engine to enhance the visual capacity of the display making the colors richer and the textures sharper. A visual feast, if you will. The Arc is also a very light weight handset with buttons and key placements very well thought out. The handset will come with Gingerbread aka Android 2.3 out of the box and has a 1 GHZ processor under its hood.

Nokia E7 - Rs. 28,200
The E7 is Nokia’s latest Communicator that’s taken the design form to a whole new level. The sleek handset has just a minor flaw and that’s the flip out display. It’s a bit tricky actually getting the hang of popping it out. The hidden keypad features individual keys that are soft and comfortable to use for long periods. Nokia’s Clear-Black Display (scratch resistant) technology infused with the handset’s AMOLED display makes the screen extremely legible even in direct sunlight. It comes equipped with a 680 ARM 11 Processor and runs Nokia’s new Symbian ^3 OS.

Apple iPhone 4 - Starting at Rs. 34,000
This list would be incomplete without the inclusion of the ever popular iPhone 4. It’s definitely one of the most elegantly yet simplistically styled device and is pretty much a fashion statement all to itself. iOS is by far one of the smoothest UI’s to have on a mobile handset and with Apple’s Retina Display that is, so far, the highest resolution on a mobile device, tends to stand out even more. The display itself is Scratch-resistant with Oleophobic surface that’s designed to keep smudges at bay. With a 1 GHz ARM Cortex-A8 processor and Apple’s own A4 chipset, graphics from games to anything else and overall speed are not be a problem. The iPhone 4 also features a Scratch-resistant glass back panel. Active noise cancellation with the help of a dedicated microphone will ensure your calls are crisp and well heard.

  • secondary front facing camera for Face-Time chatting via Wi-Fi
  • 16GB or 8GB internal memory

Don’t get me wrong, it’s not like looks constitute to just sex appeal. But it doesn’t mean manufactures would design a clunky looking handset and expect it to sell. If it doesn’t look good, no one’s going to look at it. Everyone of us is superficial at heart. Sure it’s what’s underneath that counts, but really, would you buy a Suzuki Swift if it came with a Porsche engine and were priced the same as a Porsche? Hell no! I pay the price I want the looks as much as the power and that’s just how it is with handsets.
