    Hi Fellas,

    Looking to gift my dad a new phone, Currently he is using Nokia E-5. Been almost 2 years & he has no complains with the same, However, i would like to upgrade his handset. He has been using Nokia for 8 years now and has never used a touchscreen. So, by the way it looks he is not comfortable with touch (thinks its very difficult to operate while driving and most of the times requires use of both hands.).

    However, my thought process says once he starts using touch, he will get used to it.

    Should have a 'great', good quality camera...

    Phone will be used for emailing, clicking photographs and other business activities.

    Budget 12k-14k.

    Thanks again.

    Nokia touch and type? E 6 or E 72 ?

    If the canvas 2 is available, I would highly recommend that as well

    Arre I am suggesting E-6

    Canvas HD is going to be around 15k, but makes for great features!!! Do check it out!

    Worth it IMO, just do check with him if he's going to be comfortable with a full touch screen phone. No keypad!

    OK... hands down Choices from me at this range, sadly you'd have to wait a bit for both:
    1. Nokia Lumia 620
    2. Huawei Ascend W1

    I recently started using Win8 Phone and am thrilled with it.
    The integration between devices is unmatched and ease of use is second only to Apple for new users (If you're already familiar with Windows, then ofcourse this is easier than Apple.
    Both those features should be perfect for your dad. I bought almost every cel phone that my dad used, and had he been alive today, either of those would have been his next phone.

    PS: A distant third place goes to HTC 8S
