Bundled with ample features, Xenium E108 represents Phillips in this segment. A brand like Phillips does not need any favour to be at the top. They know exactly what it takes to sway the people when it comes to mobile phones, especially. Phillips in the low priced range offered a couple of new features that many other companies did not even think to offer.

The lightweight phone of 4.9 x 1.5 x 11 cm dimension is just 77.1 gram. Better than many other phones from the rival companies, the phone is equipped with 32MB RAM. Needless to say, the RAM is pretty enough to run the phone perfectly well. All the features do not demand the makers to have more powerful RAM.

To allure customers in a greatly new manner, the second phone from Micromax in this section offers 100 days replacement promise that is something completely new to listen to. We, indeed, know that the competition with each passing day is going sky high. And companies are not left with plenty of options to maximize their sales. Still, executives and personals are thinking hard to stay in the market in every way possible.

X424 from Micromax comes up with an 800mAh battery that is far weaker than the prior discussed phone from the same company. We assessed X380 in a second-place which has enormously huge 2500mAh battery. Anyhow, this time even the prices got dropped in comparison to the previous one. With this power of the battery, the phone can have 150 hours on standby, whereas, if it is assessed with talk time, the count reaches to be 7 hours. This GSM phone, to our surprise, has an option for connectivity by being furnished by Bluetooth.

Moving forward to its design, X424 has an LCD screen offering QQVGA 128 * 160screen resolution. It amazingly has a 65K colour depth to enhance the viewing of the users. Admittedly, phones in this segment cannot offer much. Still, Phillips being a promising brand has done a lot to bring contentment to their fans. The shape of the phone is so convenient that you will barely feel any uneasiness while holding it for long even. You can guess it by learning that it has dimensions of 109 x 45 x 14mm which make the phone weigh 68grams.

You might feel astonished after learning the fact that this handset has a rear camera too that is 0.08MP. For keeping the pictures stored, the phone has 32MB internal memory that is expandable up to 8GB. Apart from this, 100 messages and 300 contacts can be saved. The provision of Micro USB is given for the connectivity options.

Video Club, M!Live, Browser, Ninja Up, Danger Dash, Nitro Racing are the applications one gets preinstalled. No one can deny that the playing games have never been out of trend. Be a person of any age, games always let us have a quality time: sometimes alone or the other times with family members. To re-energize oneself, one can engage in these applications. However, the most common feature of mobile phones in this category of radio is not there in X424. The handset supports various audio formats namely mp3/aac/wav.

The cheapest among all, this phone from IKall is exceptionally different in looks. Model namely iKall K31 is a dual SIM phone. Both the SIM cards should be in standard size only. One of the most likeable benefits of dual SIM phones is the liberty of not carrying two different phones for two connections. And if we can carry them in a stylish manner with looks like these, no one will think twice to buy such a catchy gadget. This feature phone offers you to choose a color among black, blue, red and yellow. Every colour has an exceptional dazzling effect that will make it difficult for you to choose any one of them.

Although all the features are basic that no one feels any hindrance in learning them to use, still a manual is there in the box for the customers to find out various features that can stay undercover, otherwise.

Owing to the weight, design and colour options available, this handset can be used by any gender or any age group.

The rear VGA camera is an added advantage. Believe it or not, the phone also has a LED flash. You can click as many pictures as you want. In case, you feel that the internal storage is not enough, the mobile can have more memory with the help of a memory card that can be up to 8GB. As far as the battery is concerned, it has 1000mAh power which is capable enough to handle the functions easily of the phone.
