Q I AM PLAN­NING TO BUY A MO­TOROLA MOTO G BUT I HEARD THE UNITS BE­ING SHIPPED TO IN­DIA ARE FAULTY. COULD YOU PLEASE CON­FIRM?

VIDYA, on email

GG In June, a ship­ment of Mo­torola Moto G had some is­sues. The IMEI num­ber of the hand­sets in that par­tic­u­lar ship­ment were not able to reg­is­ter on the cellular net­work. How­ever, Mo­torola had fixed this prob­lem. Just in case there is any is­sue, no­tify it to Flip­kart and they are likely to re­place the unit.

Q I HAVE NO­TICED THAT FLIP­KART IS SELL­ING iPHONE 5S FOR ` 42,000. SHALL I BUY IT NOW OR WAIT FOR iPHONE 6? MY BUD­GET IS ` 50,000.

RIDHIMA, on email

GG Ap­ple is likely to an­nounce the launch of iPhone 6 in Septem­ber and look­ing at the pre­vi­ous launches, the new hand­set will come to In­dia around Di­wali. It makes sense to wait for iPhone 6 to launch here as, firstly, you can con­sider buy­ing it if you can ex­tend your bud­get and se­condly, the price of iPhone 5S might fall futher.

Q I AM PLAN­NING TO BUY A PER­SONAL NAV­I­GA­TION DE­VICE FOR MY CAR AS I OF­TEN END UP GET­TING LOST IN THE CITY AS WELL AS ON THE HIGH­WAY. IS IT A GOOD DE­CI­SION?

RISHABH KU­MAR, on email

GG In­stead of buy­ing a per­sonal nav­i­ga­tion de­vice, you can use Google Maps for free on your smart­phone. It not only guides you to the des­ti­na­tion but also shows re­al­time traf­fic in cer­tain cities. Also, you have al­ter­na­tive routes to choose from.
