Q

I WANT TO BUY A VIR­TUAL RE­AL­ITY HEAD­SET JUST TO EX­PE­RI­ENCE THE TECH­NOL­OGY. IS THERE ANY WAY TO BUY ONE HEAD­SET WITH­OUT SPEND­ING MUCH? RISHABH KHOSLA, on e-mail

The tra­di­tional Vir­tual Re­al­ity (VR) head­sets de­vel­oped by Ocu­lus Rift, Sam­sung, Sony and HTC are priced on the higher side (due to the tech­nol­ogy used). You can, how­ever, con­sider buy­ing the one built on the Google Card­board. These can be ob­tained for as low as ` 350. This is a Do It Your­self card­board; you can fol­low the in­struc­tion man­ual to build it. You will need a Google Card­board app and other VR apps to ex­pe­ri­ence this tech­nol­ogy.

You can choose be­tween the OnePlus 2 and Asus ZenFone 2, as both these smart­phones of­fer su­perb cam­eras. The OnePlus 2 is runs on the com­pany’s own Oxy­gen OS and not the Cyanogen OS. On the other hand, Asus ZenFone 2 has 4 GB of RAM and is pow­ered by An­droid OS with Zen UI. Both are easy to han­dle and of­fer de­cent bat­tery back-up.

The re­cently launched Asus ZenPad 8 is a good de­vice and to turn it into a mul­ti­me­dia tablet, you can con­sider buy­ing the au­dio cover with it (re­viewed inside). The Xiaomi Mi Pad is also a great tablet un­der ` 15,000, but was launched in­ter­na­tion­ally al­most a year ago. The com­pany will be launch­ing a new tablet soon, but it will be priced much higher.
