    Less than 10K Suggest android mobile for a 70 year old

    I am similarly looking to buy a phone under 10k for my mom. The main usage is whatsapp, YouTube and of course calling. I’m looking at Redmi 9, which costs 9k. Do these phones have ads on them on lock screen and wherever else? And what do you mean de bloating? Is it as simple as uninstalling an app?

    The Fitness Thread !

    Any recommendations on a basic weighing scale? I was thinking of buying the Mi Body Scale for about 2k but I guess they’ve stopped making it. Any similar products at similar prices? I might even consider getting an analog scale if all an electronic scale shows is the weight. I don’t really need...

    Moving to Pune.. suggestions

    Thanks, I've been looking at Nobroker and Nestaway apps to try and narrow down some houses so that I can give the owners a call. I'm looking at apartment buildings so that it can be relatively safer (over independent houses). For a regular 2BHk in Aundh, Pashan and surrounding areas, what would...

    FIRE in India. Your thoughts?

    I think some of the opinions posted here point towards the general direction that I was looking at things as well - that is is not really practical to stop working/earning money. To me, I think all the talk about Financial Independence and Early Retirement is about taking the foot off the...

    Careers and Employment Thread

    Holy Cow! What is going on..

    I don't anticipate things improving for the common man on the ground anytime soon. Fuel prices are the perfect indicators of that - at a time when crude oil prices are among the lowest in the past decade, we're paying the highest. And yet there are people who are lapping it up. Yes, BJP will...
