Mobile Phones with Dual Camera for video calls price list

Just because your mobile handset has 3G features it does not mean you can use the video calling facility. Technically for video calling your handset needs to have a secondary camera placed somewhere on the front side. So when you are video calling you are looking at the other person’s image on your mobile display screen at the same time the camera that is present in the front is also capturing your image and sending to the other person.

So if you are buying a mobile phone or a smartphone especially for video calling make sure it does have a secondary camera. There are many 3G handsets available in the Indian market from low price 3G handsets to high end models however even high end models sometimes feature only one primary camera. Even with a secondary camera the handset may not support video calling it will be better if you cross check when you buy any handset with dual cameras. Older version of android phones do not support native video calling but you can use apps like Skype etc to get the video calling feature. The Android (Gingerbread) and above does support native video calling.

    Dear Gogi,

    I know this post is a little bit old. But I have seen people still having this confusion about video call and video chat? A video call is one where in you call the person and see each other without the need of having a internet connection and your SIM should be 3G enabled, of course your phone has to be a 3G phone to get this functionality.
    Lately I got to know that some Android phones don’t support this feature. Now they are equipped with 4G/LTE and so on. I bought a Samsung Galaxy S2 in Sept 2011 and after that I have regularly updated the phone and now it has Jelly Bean OS. But one my friend who bought a Samsung Galaxy S plus in 2012 still has gingerbread and we both can do video calls.

    Now the question arises, the disablement of the video calling feature in certain phones is due the limitations of the service providers(not having UMTS) or the mobile manufacturer is disabling it due to some legal compliance? I am not very sure about this, so thought of asking you. Somewhere I read that video calls are not legal in USA as per the rules. You can do a video chat but not a video calls. But in Korea it is legal to do a video call. So the phones shipped from Korean manufactures like Samsung and LG may be having video calls whereas others may not have. What is your say in this regards?

    It will be great if you can take some effort to enlighten your readers with a list of phones that is equipped with video calling and those require internet for video calling.

    Whether Nexus4 has video calling feature?

    Regards,
    Sambit.

    Please do not give any misleading information without verifying. None of Google's Android based phone has 3G based video calling. All these phones support video "Chat" and not video call.

          Hi native video calling means using the SIM network (not via IP). If native video call is enabled you will see the video call option in the dialer. Take any android phone with front camera and Wi-Fi and you can use skype for video calling / chat. Over the IP is different. Even with Skype you can video chat and initiate 1-to-1 video calls ( you need to pay for video calls made to a phone).

          Android 2.3 and over supports native video calling. However some handsets like the Neo have disabled the feature, it could be cause of hardware limitations.
