Every year here at India Today Tech we get tens of phones. Some of them are good, some not so much and some are outright bad. Most of them, however, tend to fall somewhere in the middle. It is mostly the bell curve, as the HR professionals call it. There are very few phones that are exceptional, and very few that are truly, spectacularly bad. Now, that the year is ending we think it is time to put it all behind us. This also means forgetting all the lemons we got and celebrating the truly bright ones that dazzled the geeks within the India Today Tech Team.

No, not all of these phones are a recommended buy. But, at the same time, we are also a little partial towards these phones because we enjoyed using them (so much). Some of theme are lacking some features, may even have a rough edge here and there. But when we used them, we loved them to the core. The experience these phones offered was truly exemplary. At the end of the review, these were the phones from which we did not want to take out our SIM cards. We wanted to keep using them, day after day even as there was another new phone that was waiting to be reviewed.
