However all smartphones come with the very similar specs with just a bit of difference on the RAM and Processor. But most of the devices come with the quad core CPU but there are differences as well in the display. Thus looking from the perspective of the specs, Lava Iris 504Q, Karbonn S5 Titanium and Intex Aqua Wonder Quad Core are the best. However, price wise one Karbonn S5 Titanium or Micromax Canvas Ego A113 which would also be fair choice.
