sony ericsson xperia neo v is the best phone to buy in the price range of 18k. for all the features which it posses it you will have to pay more with any other phone to get all that. Here are the pros and cons of the phone
1) excellent display resolution due to bravia engine
2) very good sound quality due to X-loud
3)HDMI port is certainly an added advantage.
4) both front and rear facing camera
5)rarely lags( at least not with ginger bread)
6) upgradable to ice-cream sandwitch
7) 3.7 inch TFT LCD with bravia engine
1) battery backup not satisfactorily
2) phone heats up at the top when using internet
3) not air tight earphone provided
so as we can see that the pros are much more than cons you can easily go for this Sony phone. I promise you will not regret. it is an amazing phone with brillient features. Camera, music, user interface, internet speed, etc are too good, the best part is the look, it looks just amazing, the finish the flow and the design just too gooood.
