Suggestion for mobile phone

I was in search for a good mobile phone and now stuck at Sony Ericsson Xperia Pro, because all the features that I require are there in this phone.
Please see this comparison between Sony Ericsson Xperia & iPhone 4
http://geekaphone.com/compare/Sony-Ericsson-Xperia-pro-vs-Apple-iPhone-4

Could you please suggest me any other phone than these two, with allmost all the features of Sony Ericsson Xperia Pro ?
My budget is not more than $400. In Indian rupees, not more than Rs.20,000/-

Thanks in advance
Rajkumar

I am using SE Xperia NOT mini,

Pros

Good User interface, But its an Android interface
No hardware issues as if now. i bought 6 months ago

Cons

No battery back up , goes for one day MAX
Slow , become faster when i upgraded to Gingerbread but still little slow.
Sound clarity is NOT up-to the mark of Sony Walkman series.
Ear set is paining and its a flat one NOT the one which goes inside ears so less bass and more treble.
Screen is not touchable, when your hand are wet. it just slips and no difference in screen.
In call volume was very low before the Ginger-bred upgrade ,now also little low.
Ringtone voice max is just sufficient.
No Radio Support :-(

PS: Sony Ericson's is Sony now, I bought it for 24000/-

Overall reliability;
HTC best all round option
Android os, typically a good touch screen model, decent camera, 5mp or higher.
Re budget, depends upon what it costs you at your end.
Get the best you can buy for the price, include a good tough durable case

Ok, so go to eBay and check the HTC hd7, HTC radar and the Samsung focus. One of these should do the trick.

3. Screen Size <= 3.7"
4. Other than Symbian OS
5. Good RAM, Internal Storage & CPU Processing Power.

That I understand. I heard that Android OS is not supporting 3G Video Call (VOIP) option. (There will be no option to do a video call like voice call through mobile service) and heard that supports only video call from services like skype...

http://www.indiabroadband.net/android/40615-3g-video-call-android.html

Recently I belive new version Gingerbed supports 3G Video call.

Could you pls share your knowledge on this ?

Also kindly let me know your suggestion on this phone ?

I am impressed by your lightning reply!

Cheers..

VOIP is supported, you just need an app. Here is one of the many:

The phone is gorgeous and I would use it as well :)

Good Storage, great clarity, nice size, all the sensors and scratch free screen.

Great choice!

Thanks!

I think I didn't communicate properly about I am trying to ask! I am sorry about that and to ask you again.

This is regarding video call provided by service provider. For eg:- in a 3G phone, I use Video Call instead of voice call. Here shows about the same in Nokia.

Mikal613Commented:
that seems like a Nokia in built video call application. I have no idea if its compatible but you probably use the other apps to do so. Like here:

I think my search for a good smartphone is going in right direction! Now I started dreaming about Samsung Galaxy SIII. But I think iPhone5 would be very costlier than Samsung Galaxy SIII

Samsung Galaxy SIII Vs iPhone 5

My budget now is Rs.38,000/- ($688)

So far Samsung Galaxy S3 has exceeded my expectations.
It has Video call using 3G. (running Andriod 4.0.4 Icecream Sandwitch)
Previously I was using HTC phone running Windows 6.5. Andriod OS is impressing.
Great to go with this phone :)
