IndiaTechies Pick

No doubt that Apple iPhone 5 has a little edge over Samsung Galaxy iPhone 5 but in my opinion the extra features are not worth the differences in the price of the two phones. It might be the best option available in some other countries but in India the price is just is just not affordable for many.

So my pick is Samsung Galaxy S3 for sure if you want the smartest of phones Not in just features, specifications and look & feel but also smart in price!

I think Samsung Galaxy is the most affordable and yet the smartest smartphone till now.

  1. Thanks for this glorious article. Also a thing is that most digital cameras arrive equipped with the zoom lens that enables more or less of a scene to become included by simply ‘zooming’ in and out. These kinds of changes in focus length are generally reflected inside the viewfinder and on big display screen on the back of the specific camera.
