ON THE STANDS January 2013


Gadgets of the Year
Every December, G&G toasts the best products to have come out during the year. Here are those that stood out in 2012.

Smartphones for Rs 15,000
A lower price tag no longer means that your smartphone is bound to underperform or have just basic features. Smartphones now selling for under Rs 15,000 are very competent devices.

Even in the low and mid-segment devices, majority of smartphones have a screen size measuring between 3.5 and 4.2 inches.
