Note: The men­tioned prices may vary with lo­ca­tion and taxes their bat­tery drainage time from those who ac­tu­ally use the model. It’s bet­ter to have a good bat­tery us­age time than recharg­ing your phone ev­ery sec­ond hour.

Cam­era qual­ity. Your 3G phone will be able to click and ex­change high­res­o­lu­tion pic­tures on the go with high­speed data In­ter­net. Make sure that the phone has a good-qual­ity cam­era to make the best use of its 3G ca­pa­bil­i­ties.

Price. It’s a myth that 3G re­quires ex­pen­sive hand­sets. The tra­di­tional ap­proach is to pack the hand­sets with var­i­ous mul­ti­me­dia fea­tures, browsers and colour screens. All this func­tion­al­ity is not al­ways use­ful for ev­ery buyer. Many man­u­fac­tur­ers have spot­ted the pos­si­bil­ity and mar­ket for low-cost stripped­down 3G hand­sets. So 3G hand­sets are now avail­able for even be­low Rs 5000.

De­cide whether you will be re­ally us­ing a cer­tain fea­ture or it is just a fea­ture that you fancy, as the cost will go up with each added fea­ture. The ar­ti­cle fea­tures tech­ni­cal spec­i­fi­ca­tions of some phones priced be­low Rs 10,000.

More to 3G!

With tech­nol­ogy in­evitably evolv­ing, 3G also has an up­date in the form of 4G. While it does not nul­lify 3G’s ben­e­fits, 4G will def­i­nitely take the In­ter­net to the next level. How­ever, the pen­e­tra­tion and ben­e­fits of 4G re­main un­clear at this stage, es­pe­cially in In­dia.
