In the last GOTY (Gadget of the Year) mobile segment we covered High End smartphones with the Samsung Galaxy S taking front and center stage as our High End smartphone of the Year. Now it’s time to take a look at the handsets that made an impression on us in the mid range segment. None of the smartphones mentioned in this list are priced over Rs. 20,000 or less than Rs. 10,000, so without further ado, here are Tech2’s winners in the mid range smartphone category.
Samsung Galaxy 3 – Best in Class
Samsung once again takes top spot in our list with another Android powered device, the Galaxy 3. Although the argument has always been between the Galaxy 3 and Optimus One, however even sans Froyo out-of-the-box, the 2.1 running Galaxy 3 does come out on top due to its overall handling and multimedia prowess. In the last Mobile Grudge Match you, the readers, also helped make this decision a little easier as votes tallied up showed the Galaxy 3 with a miniscule lead over the Optimus.
