    • Hi, the new Moto G (2nd Gen) is a much better choice than the Canvas HD Plus, it has better performance, best build quality and the graphics are also better. It’s a much better deal than the Canvas HD Plus.

  3. yash

    Hi Rahul, I want to buy a smartPhone I am confuses between Moto G ( 14 K) and Samsung S3 ( 17.5 K ,I got a 25 % discount on samsung because I am employee of samsung ) which one is value for money in term of use and durability

      • basheer

        buddie please help me iwant to buy a phn around 13k so i selected this three phns moto g,canvas magnus,canvas 2.2 so which would u suggest n iam a hardcore gamer n camera lover so plz suggest me a gud phn which is gud at spec’s and after sale service too!

      • Mubarak

        Hi Rahul,

        M so confused to buy Moto g,because this brand is new in India and no one knows how it will be going to work.The specs of this mobile is so good no doubt.Please suggest me weather i should buy this or not?

        • Hello Mubarak,

          Motorola is not new in India. The company went in a cool down and had withdrwan its services from many countries including India. It is now back in India again. Its true that it has limited service centers. But Lenovo buying Motorola creates a hope that Motorola services will be getting better in India as Lenovo is constantly expanding its hold in the Indian markets. Your concern is obvious, and for it, just checkout whether its service center is available in your city or not.

      • Rahul Bokolia

        But what about the Moto G is Lenovo take over Motorola in India
        Isn’t it a risk of buying Moto G as there is no help will be provided by the company itself.

        • Hello Rahul,

          Your concern is obvious. But Lenovo is the company which is trying very hard to establish itself into Indian smartphone markets and they are doing a good job too. Also, Motorola was functional in India for many years in the past so they have service centres. And the company is ready to provide support to the Moto G as they are expanding their business in India and soon the Moto X will be launched in India. So they will provide support.

  4. have you heard about the tragedy caused by micromax phones….. it blast and the person which had the phone blasts….so do you suggest wwhich company phone i should buy under 15k for gaming games like asphalt 8, modern kombat

  5. i want to buy a phone for a good brand like sony,samsung under 15k … have you heard about the tragedy caused bu micromax phone that it blast.. and the person which had that phone was died…………….. so do you suggest which is the best phone under 15k

    • Hi eshaan,

      Its not just that the phones of Micromax have blasted. Few days ago there was a news that a person’s Iphone got blasted in his pocket. It can’t be kept limited to any particular company.

      The best phone under 15k is definitely Motorola Moto G.

  6. Hari

    Hi
    Being a windows mobile user i personlly suggst no to windows phone .,the main drawback is its applications.,most of the applicatns r not supporting in windws phones nd now a days people r crazy abut android mobiles due to its wide range of apps.,
    i can give u an xmple in Lumia fb messngr r way 2 sms nothng is as user frndly as android apps nd mostly games also.,so i persnlly suggest no to windws

  7. Raul

    Aren’t you giving very biased answers? You can’t just say no to a windows phone without knowing the exact requirements & without giving any sufficient reasoning.

    • Hi Raul,

      This blog is to help buyers. When people ask me which is the best phone in _____ price range, they always want a great and the best phone. And comparing between Android & Windows phone, it is well known fact that the WIndows Mobile OS is not as good as Android. So while recommending the best phone, why should I recommend those phones to the buyers which are way below in the competition and are certainly not the best.

      There is nothing like biasing. I give very honest opinions. I never try to favour a certain company. My efforts are always to recommend and salute the BEST technology.

  8. manohar

    HI rahul, my budget around 17K and i am confused whether to go for Samsung Grand, or Micromax Canvas Magnus or Nokia Lumia 720. My friends told me dat micromax canvas giving some sound problem when you hear songs…tell me the truth sir…

    • Hi Manohar,

      Among the 3 phones you have mentioned, Micromax Canvas Magnus is the best. It scores good in music playback in several benchmark tests. Also it has a good review everywhere. If your friends are facing some problems, it might be limited to that device only or may have arised due to mis-configuration.

    • Hi Harsh,

      Withink 16k, go with Samsung Galaxy Grand Quattro. And Nexus 4 is a proven and an amazing phone, its price is 25k whereas, The Nexus 5 is the best phone of 2013 with amazing specifications at just 28,000 Rs. So it will be better to grab the latest Nexus device by spending additional 3,000 Rs.

  9. lekha

    hi rahul,

    • Micromax Canvas Magnus has good camera… and display is also very good. And Micromax Canvas Turbo is well upto the mark. Its best phone in that range. And around 15k go with Canvas Magnus.

    • Hello Ankush, there are better phones now in 30,000 like Google Nexus 5, Sony Xperia ZL and more.

      And under 20,000 Rs, if big screen is your concern, you should go for Xolo Q3000 with 5.7 inches screen.

    • Hello Vikash,
      This are the 3 phones with ranking for u:
      1. Micromax A250 Canvas Turbo
      2. iberry Auxus Nuclea N1
      3. Karbon Titanium X

      I knw ur heasitation as many people face the same issue. But, those who have bought the phone are really happy with iBerry. Also Micromax Canvas Turbo is better than iBerry’s and here you may have less hesitation.

      • Hi Rahul,

        I’m passionate about listening to music with a high quality (near audiophile / studio quality) I currently need to replace nokia 5800 xpressmusic.

        Please suggest a good ( 4.5″ / 5″ screen ) with good internet experience. good photo quality, build and brand ( is gionee Elfee E3 good? – its got dolby srs )

        Thanks a ton. Looking forward to your reply.

    • Hello Rohan, the reason is, the list is of only 5 phones and Lenovo phones might not offer best value in that specific range. I am also fan of some Lenovo phones, the brand offers best battery backup.
