Samsung Galaxy Note II: The new Note II is slimmer and more compact than its predecessor and boasts of stylish features that were originally part of the S III. The Note II has a fancy stylus that uses pressure points- Air View and Pop-up Note goodies- perfectly. The 8 megapixel camera is just as good as its predecessor and the S III. The rest of the features are cool a mash-up of what’s available in the S III and Note.

HTC Desire X: This phone which was launched without much hype, runs on Ice Cream Sandwich and has a 4.0-inch LCD with 480 x 800-pixel resolution. The 5 megapixel camera is pretty decent with options for burst shots and fast activation, features that were initially available only in the higher-end models.

ZTE Grand X IN: Intel-based phones are slowly and steadily making their mark in the smartphone category. The new phone from ZTE is powered by the Intel Atom Z2460 processor. It has a decent 8MP camera (plus a VGA front-facing one), and 1080p camcorder. The Grand X IN will launch with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, but ZTE might include a personalized interface to differentiate its product from the rest.
