    I'm a huge fan of my Nexus 5. It's screaming fast, stock Android so there's no crapware to deal with, and the screen is beautiful. Plus, it's a Nexus so you won't have to wait months for OS updates. I'd recommend it to anyone.

      Appending sub-question : How is after sales service of Nexus device?

    I love my Moto G. Everything "just works" and performance is great. If you don't need absolute top end performance, I think this is the phone to get.

      thanks. Please tell a) that for multi-app usage , which of the two is of greater importance : processor or RAM? or b) interdependent? , and c) multiple apps usage is suited to 4.0.4 and lower versions as sd card feature is enabled and internal storage overcrowded can be avoided?

    • Oron J

      Both RAM and CPU are necessary for good performance. They're not interdependent, but necessary. CPU speed as such is probably not critical, but having a dual core processor makes a big difference.
      As for (c), I can't answer that.

      Sunil,

      For the c) part,you can move apps to SD card iff the apps support it.

      thanks. your answer for which version number/s of android?

    • Oron J

      For Moto G, which comes with KitKat (by now 4.4.2).

      Sunil,

      Google removed support for apps in SD card right from Jellybean.So,upto ICS version,you can have apps in SD card.

      Just a quick note to point out that the Moto G cannot be expands with an SD card. Also, the battery is not removable. Two of the xcost saving measures that help keep the price of this model so low.

    Samsung Galaxy Note III and Sony Xperia Z2 are good phones which are smooth in operations.

      Appending sub-question : Please tell , Which brands ( even those out of your earlier response ) offer good after sales service?

    • Susendeep D
      June 2, 2014 at 4:35 am

      As far as I know,Samsung has good service.But some people do report negative feedback which would be there in every other brands too.Although,I haven't seen my friend much often facing any problems with smartphone usage so as to pay visit to service centre.

      thank you. I agree with your point that samsung has good service. It was also mentioned in past in this forum. Adding a sub-question : Please tell how come tabs these days cost almost same or less than mobile phones with about same specs ( processor type , RAM , battery , internal memory............ ) per size?

    • Susendeep D
      June 4, 2014 at 4:19 am

      Earlier,full sized ones used to cost more than flagship smartphones.But the cost of smartphones has raised(especially in India) hence,they costs almost similar.

      But the point of difference between these two devices are that a phone is a phone first and a tablet is a tablet first.A tablet offers poor calling experience as compared to phones.They disappoint in many aspects as compared to their smartphone counterparts.

      thanks. you mentioned "But the point of difference between these two devices are that a phone is a phone first and a tablet is a tablet first.A tablet offers poor calling experience as compared to phones.They disappoint in many aspects as compared to their smartphone counterparts."
      Please tell , is what you mentioned , the main reason for tablets nowadays costing even as low as rs.4k?

    • Susendeep D
      June 5, 2014 at 9:44 am

      The tablets costing in that range won't offer you any good user experience in any aspect as compared to those of Apple and Samsung.

      What are your views about tabs of Sony , LG , Motorola

    • Drsunil V
      June 7, 2014 at 5:35 pm

      please also tell , how do users get after sales service / repair of nexus tabs in India? can you name / weblink of service centers of nexus?

    • Susendeep D

      Tablets of LG,Samsung and Sony seems stretched out version of their flagship smartphone at first appearance.They need to improve a lot in their device to bring user experience to a new level.For this,they have to closely work with Google to give a unique tablet experience which Apple users enjoys.
      I'm not advocating Apple,but the fact remains that comparatively,tablet optimized apps are very few as compared to Apple app store.

    Go it for Moto G is budget is less and Moto X if budget is higher. Best phone and good return for money, with vanilla Kitkat and no bloatware. Also just like Nexus phones, will always get the android update to hit first on these phones.

    Moto G @ Rs. 12,500 apprx. , Moto X @ Rs. 24,000 apprx.

      On second thoughts Moto X has dual core CPU, so does not apply though OTA KitKat update is available on it, if not shipped. Therefore, go for the Moto G.

      At the conclusion I would suggest you either the Moto G or the Nexus 5, depending on your budget.
