I AM PLAN­NING TO BUY A BUDGET SMART­PHONE AND WON­DER­ING IF THE MO­TOROLA MOTO E IS ANY GOOD.

KANIKA, on email

The Mo­torola Moto E is a de­cent smart­phone fea­tur­ing a 4.3-inch ca­pac­i­tive dis­play and a dual core pro­ces­sor. While the smart­phone jus­ti­fies the price-tag, it did heat up a few times. You can check our re­view here.

I HAVE BOUGHT A NEW HP MA­CHINE AND AM WON­DER­ING WHETHER I SHOULD IN­VEST IN HEAVY SE­CU­RITY SOFT­WARE SUCH AS NOR­TON, ETC. IS THERE ANY FREE AL­TER­NA­TIVE WHICH IS GOOD?

ANIL GUPTA, on email

Con­sid­er­ing your ma­chine is Win­dows 8 or above, your sys­tem comes pre-in­stalled with Win­dows De­fender, which is good enough to pro­tect it from threats and virus at­tacks. In case you have an old Win­dows ma­chine, the Win­dows Se­cu­rity Es­sen­tial is a free soft­ware that you can in­stall. You need not in­vest in Nor­ton, etc.

I WAS PLAN­NING TO BUY THE iPHONE 4S BUT WITH AP­PLE AN­NOUNC­ING iOS 8, WILL THE iPHONE 4S GET THE UP­DATE?

SU­JIT KU­MAR, on email

Buy­ing an iPhone 4s isn’t a good idea as it is at the end of its life. Ap­ple will dis­con­tinue the de­vice next year. Also, the iPhone 4s will get the iOS 8 up­date for free but I would sug­gest you don't get lured by this. Last year’s iOS 7 had con­sid­er­ably slowed down the iPhone 4s and iOS 8 may not run smoothly on the hand­set.
