      Hi Vasanth,

      We tried to reply back to you a few days back but we are unable to send the email to you. Please make sure that your email address works.
      Some friends of ours have had some very bad experiences (after sales support) with Karbonn phones so we cannot suggest you to buy Karbonn A12+.

      Samsung Star Pro looks good but the Panasonic T31 has an edge over it when it comes to performance and photography.
      So, we would suggest you to buy Panasonic T31.
      Buy Panasonic T31 now.

      As far as battery backup is concerned, no cheap(affordable) smartphone is capable of providing more than a day of battery backup.
      We advice our fans to always use a secondary feature/dumb phone alongwith a smartphone. These basic phones provide between 3-5 days of battery backup.

    You have listed some of the best mobiles priced below Rs.5000. I would suggest you to add Nokia 502 to this list. It has almost all the features of Nokia Asha 501 and also an improved camera of 5MP. Nice post. Thanks for sharing.
