Quite a lot of people still prefer flip phones owing to its ergonomic design and the satisfying feel of flipping it open and snapping it shut after your use. When compared to the LG Gentle flip phone the Galaxy Folder phone doesn't seem to offer much at that price range. At Rs. 11,000 LG Gentle showcases a powerful processor and a 3 MP camera with flash along with 0.3 MP front camera. The battery capacity is also noteworthy.
The folding pattern along with latest Android features guarantees more power to a mid-level smartphone user. Despite the not so catchy specs the expandable memory and 3G connection may seem as a consolation for the user.
