The last time when we recommended a online service which would allow you to Compare Digital Cameras Features Pro Cons Online, we came to know that actually many readers were happy about these kind of comparison services. In this article we will be suggesting you another similar service which is specially offered by a Indian Startup with very simple and useful interface.
Called as Phone Curry – Find the best mobile phone for yourself – India prices, features, reviews. The service allows Indian consumers to find the best mobile phones easily based on the prices, features, designs, brands and ratings.
To get started once you are on the website you will have to click on the selections box displayed on the homepage. Based on your budget you can select the prices and then based on your requirements you can select some of the features listed. In case you are not interested in some pre-selected option you can click on the same and uncheck it.
Next the website will start displaying you all the results based on your selections. You can always change the selections on the result page and research. Once you find your favorite devices you can click on the Compare button which will add the handset to the Compare list. Next click on the link which is available in the top saying ‘Compare Phones Side-by-Side’ which will display you all the Phone Comparison results based on all the devices you had previously selected.
We asked the Founder of PhoneCurry – Sahil Bajaj with a few questions related to this service and here are the answers for the same which would be helpful in getting more ideas about the service and the future plans.
Q. How many mobile phone models are currently listed in the database.
A. Over 500. This includes all models launched in the last 2 years by the major brands – Nokia, Samsung, Sony Ericsson, LG, Motorola, BlackBerry, Apple, HTC, Asus, INQ, Micromax, Karbonn, Spice, Videocon, Maxx and Lava.
Q. On what basis do you rate these handsets?
A. The handsets are rated after an analysis of online reviews from various sources. The feature set of the phone vs other phones in its price range is also taken into account. The overall rating indicates our assessment of the ‘value-for-money’ provided by the phone.
Q. Is PhoneCurry based on a Custom Script or a Open Source Script which is customized?
A. The programming is in PHP, with the database powered by MySQL.
Q. What are the next plans for PhoneCurry?
A. a. Start reviewing of handsets in-house.
b. Include options for buying phones online (through affiliate partnerships with e-commerce players)
Conclusion : The service looks quite useful but it would be great if there were more features added like pricing from online indian stores fetched in real time giving the consumer the exact price of any specific handset. Also it would have been better if there were some real reviews made for the devices along with comparisons made in the form of videos for the most competitive devices like Samsung Galaxy S Vs Apple iPhone 4 which is going to give the buyers a better idea on which device would be more useful to them based on their requirements. May be they could get more ideas from the above recommended Digital Camera Online Price Comparison tool or services like PricesBolo.
