Having used a smartphone gives you an edge to experiment with newer OSes like Windows Phone 8, Android's latest JellyBean etc.
While it may be hard for many to put money on a just-out Windows Phone 8 device but do not hesitate on Samsung's Galaxy Note II.
For Rs 39990, Galaxy Note II sports a 5.5-inch display which is bigger than any smartphone out there.
Besides, a 1.6GHz quad core processor with 2GB of RAM also puts the hardware ahead of the iPhone 5.
Billed as a 'phablet' and with a stylus, Note II is convenient enough for creating content on the go.
