Within ` 15,000, you have some good options to choose from. To start with, the Motorola Moto G 16 GB variant is among the best. Xiaomi, the Chinese handset manufacturer, is also stepping into the Indian market. Xiaomi Mi 3, which will be sold exclusively through Flipkart, also looks good. Last, you can also consider Nokia Lumia 625 or the BlackBerry Z3.

You can try uploading a picture and specifications, along with the desired price on portals such as OLX and Quikr. People check these sites for second hand gadgets too. Flipkart has also started selling TVs and is running an exchange offer. Last, you can always check out companies’ promotional schemes for a good discount on exchange of an old TV.
I AM PLANNING TO BUY AN IPAD BUT SOMEONE TOLD ME TO WAIT AS NEW MODELS WILL BE ANNOUNCED SHORTLY. IS IT TRUE, AND WILL THEY COST LESS AS COMPARED TO THE CURRENT PRICES?
SACHIN, on email
Yes, Apple is due to announce the launch of new iPad models in the coming months. However, it will take close to a month for the models to hit India after the international launch. The prices will be either same or higher than that of existing iPads. It will definitely not cost less owing to the current dollar rate.
