    I don't think Xperia C should be in the list. Mediatek really? Plus the 5inch qHD screen. No gorilla glass. Small internal memory.
    Just because the device is from Sony doesn't make it a good device. Xolo Q800 with similar specs costs just 9K.

    I wouldn't recommend this. I've used this device and it lags like a b*tch.

    My recommendation is purely for the battery life. My Motorola Razr Maxx used to lag as well. But the insane battery life was what made it worthwhile

    Just for the navigation and accurate GPS, yes I would recommend Windows. You have nearly all the regular apps that you would use on Android. The other good thing is that even an entry level phone has a fast UI.

    Only bit that I miss with Windows phone is that they need a browser. UC browser works fine but somehow feels as if something is amiss.

    Do demo it once before deciding.

    4GB is way too less IMO.

    ^^ The lens at the back is quite uncomfortable, but the imaging and zoom is excellent.
