Q. I am planning to buy a smartphone and my budget is Rs 30,000. I am tempted to buy an iPhone 5s but It is beyond my budget. How about iPhone 4s or 5? Should i consider them? Puneet Singh, on email
A. For Rs 30,000, the best smartphone at the moment is the Google Nexus 5. You could also consider the buy back scheme introduced by Apple where you get the iPhone 5c for less than Rs 30,000 on the exchange of an old smartphone. iPhone 4s and iPhone 5 are no.
