Cheap Dual-Core Android Phones in Pakistan

Dual-core phones were considered a novelty in the world of Smartphones just one year ago but since the start of 2012, they have suddenly conquered almost all of the mid-budget market. These phones can actually threaten the existence of cheaper smartphones.

Today, we thought of presenting you the list of best mid-budget dual-core android smartphones.

Sony Xperia U – Rs. 24,990

Sony Xperia U

Sony Xperia U has the same familiar Boxy design which Sony has already used in Xperia S and Xperia P, which has received mixed reviews from users.

Sony Xperia U has got a 1GHz dual-core processor under its hood coupled with 512 Mb RAM and 8Gb limited memory. The display of the phone measures 3.5 inches and has a resolution of 854*480.

The back of the phone sports a 5mp camera with 720p video recording. The OS running is Android 2.3 Gingerbread with Ice Cream Sandwich about to be released. The phone costs Rs. 24,990 on

Samsung Galaxy Ace 2 – Rs. 26,000


Successor to the popular Ace, Galaxy Ace 2 has a 800Mhz dual-core processor and is coupled with 768 Mb Ram and 4Gb Internal storage (there’s a microSDslot as well).

The screen is 3.8 inches and has a resolution of 800×450. The back boasts a 5mp camera with 720p video recording.

The phone runs on Android 2.3 Gingerbread (a 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update is promised) covered with Samsung’s Touchwiz 4.0.

The phone is currently unavailable in some places but should cost around Rs. 26,000.

LG Optimus 2X – Rs. 27,990


And right they say that old is gold. LG Optimus 2X was the first phone of the world with a dual-core processor. The 1Ghz dual-core processor is backed with 512 Mb RAM.

The internal storage is 8Gb along with a microSD card slot. The screen measures 4 inches big with a resolution of 800×480.

The camera in this phone is of 8mp resolution with 1080p Full HD video recording. But as the phone is old, it has an uninspiring design. LG Optimus 2X runs on Gingerbread for now.

The price of this phone has dropped to Rs.27,990 at

LG Optimus 3D – Rs.32,990


Perhaps the most special of the lot, LG Optimus 3D, as evident by its name has dual-cameras with a stereoscopic screen. Add some special 3D apps as well and the result is a unique phone which is worth showing of.

It has got a 1Ghz Dual-core processor with 512 Mb RAM. The screen is 4.3inches big with a resolution of 800×480.

The back sports 2 cameras of 5mp resolution. They can also capture 3D photos (in 3mp resolution). The phone comes with the outdated Android 2.2 (upgradeable to Android 2.3). The internal memory is 8Gb with a microSD card slot. The price for LG Optimus 3D is Rs.32,990 at

HTC Evo 3D – 36,500



HTC Evo 3D is said to be an ultimate entertainment device. It comes with 1.2 Mhz dual core processor with 1 GB RAM and in addition to 1 GB internal memory.

HTC EVO 3D will allow you to capture high resolution 3D photos or videos and watch them in 3D on a 4.3 inch qHD screen.

HTC EVO 3D is priced around Rs. 36,500 in Pakistan.

HTC Sensation – Rs. 36,990


As HTC’s sense OS (with Android of course) has a huge fan following, the list would’ve been incomplete without the HTC Sensation. Sensation has a 1.2Ghz dual-core processor with 768Mb RAM.

HTC Sensation has a resolution of 540×960 on a large 4.3 inch touchscreen. The back of the phone has a 8mp camera with 1080p FullHD video recording.

Internal memory is 1Gb backed by a memory card slot. The price of HTC Sensation is currently Rs. 36,990 at

  • Wish to get one,,,,,, I did a huge blunder by buying a nokia c6 for 20K. It doesn’t support apps.

    • Dont buy Evo 3D iam HTC’s fan but EVO 3D is one of worst phone I have ever used from HTC. I have just returned it after 2 days. Poor color, poor picture quality, heavy, very poor 3d quality, I also have LG 3d Optimus its far better as compare to EVO but its disadvantage is its currently supports Android 2.2 if you wanna buy HTC Phone go for Sensation.

  • LG has no market in Pakistan. While Xperia U looks great but due to the limited storage it will suck in the future. Samsung Galaxy Ace 2 looks promising and has some good features with it. I will definitely go for Samsung.

    • luk at price diference now u is avalable for 16k while ace 2 is of 27k :P 8gb memry aik nrmal admi k lye boht hoti ha..perfomance,display cmara sb xperia u ka bot behtr ha ace 2 se

    • Well, the entry level phones are those which are below the 20K mark and the flagship models are normally those above the 40-45K mark. So these mid-rangers are those that come in between.

  • these are mid range for 50K+ buyers and costly for 10K- category..
    however nice post and good looking smart phones

  • Dear Admin plz correct the price of Xperia U.
    as in heading its written 24990 and at bottom its showing 25900.

    • Xperia Sola wasn’t added because it was quite similar in specs to the Xperia U. Also it was a bit more expensive.

  • @admin: plz admin promote also a ( Q-Mobile ) pakistani mobile brand, it has also launched new high quality Android smartphones from Rs 9k to 11k , just go to qmobile website dan u wil c there that its a Pakistani own mobile brand which are manufactured in P.R.C for Pakistan, and near future it wil have a factory in Karachi, so plz admin for God sake dont cal it chinease, it doesnt mean that if Nokia have a factory in china dan nokia wil b an chinease brand , its wrong nokia is a finland brand which has just factory in china which manufacture mobiles for finland, so Qmobile is a Pakistani brand which is now exporting 2 afghanistan, u.a.e, k.s.a , iran etc

    • Q Mobiles are obsoleted phones they have launched 2.2 / 2.3x Android current version is 4.0.3 so never buy Q Mobile android phones those phones are worst.

      • Android 2.3 is not yet obsolete. Wait a bit more and 4.0 from china will storm the market as Ice Cream Sandwich is open sourced

      • According to Google report at the end of June 2012, About 63.6% of Android users are still using Gingerbread (2.3.3 to 2.3.7 version with API level 10) on their mobile devices. Market share of IceCream Sandwich (4.0.3 to 4.0.4 version with API level 15) is only 10.7%. QMobile Noir A5 and A2 have Gingerbread (2.3.4) which is ok for a low end Smart phone.

    • Qmobile is Extremly costly set with poor specification..For example…Qmobile A2 (650 MHZ ,128Mb RAM) =9,500 whereas Galaxy pocket (832MHZ , 289Mb Ram , 17 Hours talk time) = 10,500…
      Similarly A5 = 11,500 ( 650Mhz , 5hr Talk time , No GPU , Poor camera) whereas HTC Explorer = 11,440 (600MHz Cortex A5 , Adreno 200 GPU , 7.40 hour talk time)….

      • To Omair Ahmed: Both Samsung Pocket and HTC Explorer have NO secondary video call camera. Both are single SIM mobiles. Samsung Pocket has 2MP camera with MP4 video recording at 320 x 240 pixels resolution at 15 fps rate. HTC Explorer has 3.2 MP camera with MP4 video recording at 640 x 480 pixels resolutions at 19 fps rate.
        Qmobile A5 is a dual SIM mobile having 5MP camera with MP4 video recording at 720 x 480 pixels resolutions at 28.5 fps rate. Both A2 and A5 have secondary video call camera.

        • COmeon the field…HTC explorer (3.15MP) camera is much much better than Qmobile(5MP)…same is with the video…. You have got no idea what Explorer 480P means…GOTO YOUTUBE and search “qmobile noir a5 cemera video result” and “HTC Explorer Video Camera Test” …
          See it yourself there is no difference (pardon me to say Explorer is not hanging whereas A5 lol on it)

          and taking about secondary camera…IN pakistan 3g will lauched in when you will be about 80yrs old…lol what is use for that when you cant USE SKYPE VIDEO CALL in A5?????????????

          • I have compared the video capture quality of 5 phones including HTC Explorer and QMobile Noir A5.I have made video phone calls on QMobile Noir A5 using Yahoo Messenger via WiFi and audio phone calls on Skype wia WiFi network. Please read my detailed review at this page:

  • Readers are so stupid, this article is only about “dual core mid range phones”. I know they are not affordable by many (including me) but it does not mean we start criticizing using un ethical words for the writer or admin. Peace!

  • Salam, i agree with fakhre alam. Admin plz tell low price android phones in another thread. I think android best for other mobiles e.g. China phones, s40, s60

  • You may Forget the Pakistan’s first 3G enabled Android Smartphone; “EVO Droid”. Cost around Rs. 17,000/- with 6 month Internet Connection.

  • Samsung Galaxy S 2 I9100 is best, if you really wana enjoy the touch smarth phone rest of all are worst. believe me…

  • The Cheapest Android Mobile having 2.3.4 release is A-5 of QMobile with 5mp camera, front camera, GPS, wifi…..only lacking is of 3G support which I find….Price Rs-10500/- only.
