2.MP3 Player

3.Video Player

4.FM Radio

5.Downloadable Themes, games, wallpapers and polyphonic ringtones

6.Voice Recorder

7.64 K TFT LCD large Display

8.GPRS - Internet Connectivity


10.Infrared port


12.Substantial Internal Memory

All these features and in a budget price

This was when I stumbled upon Sony Ericsson K 700 I . This phone is a gem of a beauty if you are looking for a phone with maximum features at a cool price.

3.Switch Night Mode : On/Off

4.Embed pictures in cool frames before clicking

5.Add great effects:Panorama, Black & White, Negative, Sepia,Solarize,

You even have a small light that you can switch on to compensate for flash for still or video pics.

I bet it even works as a torchlight if you are lost in the dark :)

5.Downloadable Themes, games, wallpapers and polyphonic ringtones

6.Voice Recorder

A cool voice recorder.

Better than current counterparts of the phone in this range.

8.GPRS - Internet Connectivity

You need to activate GPRS from your mobile service provider. Once activated net connectivity is fast and during downloads you are shown a download progress bar that add to the usability of the phone.

Another connectivity option

11.Tri-Band(GSM 900/1800/1900)

A feature rare in mobiles of this price range.

12.Substantial Internal Memory

41 MB Internal memory is quite sufficient.

Apart from these some added features that make this phone a cool pick:

If you are looking for some common features this phone has them too:
