There few things you should take care before buying any smart phone.
1)Its RAM.
2)Its processor.
4)Screen Resolution.

For good smartphone who can satisfy our basic needs, it should contain at least 512 RAM or more. 832 Mhz processor or more(if its dual core then great). 1300mAh or more. Screen at least 3.5" for gaming purpose.

So there are good smartphones available who are below 12000.
1) Samsung Galaxy ace(single sim),Rs 11400 or Samsung Galaxy ace duos(Dual sim), Rs 11900.
2)Micromax A90(great features, must have a look, Dual sim), Price 12990.

Hi Prashant,
There are quite a few good android phones available in the market under 12000. There is Samsung Galaxy Ace, LG Optimus Hub, Motorola Defy Mini n many more. If you want go for higher specifications and since you mentioned that you need it for gaming then a dual core processor phone is a must. Such mobiles will cost you more than 20000 but if brand is not a issue than I would suggest you to go for karbonn A9+ or karbonn A21. Both these phones have a powerfull dual core processors clocked at 1.2 GHz. A9+ has 4" screen and A21 has 4.5" screens which are comfortable for Gaming. Also both phones support HD. Both of the phones are ice cream sandwich phones. So what else would you need. Now I know you are worried about price because such specs would cost you 20000-25000 easily in the market. But no need to worry both of these karbonn phone are available at 10000-11000.
Choice is yours. Choose wisely.
