    Amazon's EMI discount offers - What's the catch?

    Yep I meant no interest EMI. There is Rs. 99 flat processing fee too. I am just wondering if there is GST involved on the EMI payments as well? In which case the price goes back up, no? For example, the OnePlus Nord 8/128 version is 27,999 with the "no interest" EMI (691.25) and discount...

    Amazon's EMI discount offers - What's the catch?

    On Amazon homepage they are showing an EMI discount offer. I tried adding a phone to cart to see what happens. And then applied my ICICI debit card. It shows 3 months No EMI and the price difference is 1500 - the discount price. Though I am hesitant about buying stuff so I can't help but wonder...

    Budget 25-30k Successor for my OnePlus 3T

    I understand. Normally I keep my phones as safe as possible. I often try to give as less permissions as possible. for example, I don't care for apps caching and faster experience if I can get away not giving storage write permissions. So yes I am fine with compromising security in lieu of...

    Budget 25-30k Successor for my OnePlus 3T

    I guess my question is - If it is a hardware based test then how do custom roms come into the picture? Even if I get Nord and root it and install Magisk on it then I am still in the same boat. It doesn't matter if I have Nord + root + magisk or K20 Pro + custom Rom or K20 Pro + root + magisk...

    Budget 25-30k Successor for my OnePlus 3T

    I like the specs. The only thing I am worried about is the popup camera. I have butter fingers and drop my phone every now and then. just today dropped my OP3T. So I am worried the popup selfie camera wouldn't take the damage.

    Budget 25-30k Successor for my OnePlus 3T

    I got the phone button repaired at a local shop. So for now I am saved. for the iOS phones, I have an old Ipad mini 2 and the battery on it beats every Android phone hands down. But I like to have access to the filesystem, I don't think I'll be able to use iOS as my daily driver. The nord...

    Budget 25-30k Successor for my OnePlus 3T

    Well I got royally screwed. I woke up on Saturday to see my phone has powered down. I looked online and all the options given don't work. I can't reboot the phone. The OnePlus support site doesn't work. They can't process a repair. Then I tried calling all the service centers in Bangalore. It...

    Budget 25-30k Successor for my OnePlus 3T

    I bought my Oneplus 3t around 4 years ago and it has been amazing - even with the phone still running on Android 7.1. Combined with a Nilkin hard cover it has survived numerous falls. Within the last year, problems have come up. The power button has gone kaput. Fingerprint sensor requires...

    Spam and inaction on Jio

    For past couple of months I am being spammed by Pokerbaazi on my Jio number. And in spite of raising multiple spam complaints they always tell that the operator found - No marketing activity. When DND had started I was spammed continuously by a company and they had to pay a huge price for it...

    How are making sure your family is aware and will manage finances "Just In Case"?

    I think one of the most important part is to tell your family about your debts and investments. When my dad passed away we had to sift through his documents only to find rough bills for ICICI mutual funds. Without folio number all our money was stolen by the advisor.

    Aligarh kachori seller earns Rs 60 lakh, I-T dept on alert after tip off

    Dint scroll do a set of videos showing the roadside stall economics? As for the tax issues most of these people aren't well educated. They know tax but don't know income tax/GST etc. Heck, my family as professional businessman for last 50 years struggled massively with GST. All they knew were...
