Gadgets and Gizmos (India) - - LETTERS -


As Google Nexus phones are of­fi­cially avail­able in In­dia now, I am think­ing of buy­ing one. The Nexus 5 has been launched, but the Nexus 4 is also avail­able. I am con­fused. Which one should I buy and why?

The price dif­fer­ence be­tween the Nexus 4 and Nexus 5 isn’t much. If bud­get is not a con­strain, I would rec­om­mend the Nexus 5 which runs on An­droid KitKat.


I want to buy an An­droid ph­ablet with a screen larger than 5 inches, cost­ing be­low Rs 10,000. Can you sug­gest a few op­tions worth con­sid­er­ing?



Most of the smart­phones to­day have a 5 inch dis­play and there are many ph­ablets that fall in this price cat­e­gory. The ones worth con­sid­er­ing are Kar­bonn Ti­ta­nium S2, Micromax Can­vas 3D, Zen 701HD, In­tex Aqua i4 and Gionee EG3.


I am look­ing for a lap­top for top­notch gam­ing in ad­di­tion to car­ry­ing out ev­ery­day tasks. Should I go for lap­tops like Alien­ware? Is Ap­ple a good al­ter­na­tive for gam­ing? Bud­get is be­tween Rs 80,000 to Rs1lakh.

PUNEET SINGH, on email


If you are se­ri­ous about gam­ing, the best lap­top will be Alien­ware. The lat­est one is the Alien­ware 14 but it is priced slightly higher than your bud­get at

` 1,13,000. But you could also con­sider Ap­ple's MacBook Pro as games work well on Ap­ple ma­chines too.
