Choosing the Best Gadgets Under Rs. 5,000

Before you decide to buy a gadget for yourself, here are a few important points that need to be considered.

  • Utility – Purchasing a gadget just because it looks cool or your friend owns it can be a waste of money. Always think about the viability of the gadget for you, is it going to add any value or comfort in your life? Is it going to entertain you or make your life easier? If yes, then go ahead and plan about buying that desired gadget, else you might repent your decision, and after a few days, the new gadget will be lying as a showpiece on your shelf.

  • Warranty – Try not to pick a gadget without warranty as few gadgets won't be repaired in the local market and even if they are, the charges will be hefty. So, if you are planning to spend about 5000 on a gadget, then look for a warranty that lasts for a minimum of six months.

  • Accessories – Ensure that you are getting the accessories required to use the gadget; this will save you from the pain of purchasing separate wires, charging cables, etc.

  • Ratings and Reviews – Checking at different online platforms and social forums about the reviews help you to understand the quality and performance of the gadget, this way, you can decide to buy the gadget keeping the right expectations about its limitations.

  • Offers and Coupons – Companies and online retailers keep on floating different schemes and coupons to promote their products, so double-check the price of the product on various online sites as well as offline stores to get the best deal.
