I had first hand experience with asus service within Mumbai for my zenfone 5.

Took more than 1 month to offer me solution but I was given the idea first hand.
Finally got 16gb 1.6 ghz cpu, gold model for my 8gb black 1.2 ghz cpu model.

Just go through last few pages of asus zenfone thread where I had shared my experience.

All right mate. Thanks!

Infocus is new brand specialist in projectors...but has surprised us by launching budget smartphones
M2 is good phone just check reviews first before getting one.

Many thanks. But its online sale only and I have read bad reviews about Yureka. It was my initial choice but I stopped buying it because of the issues like heating, lagging and after sales service. Has Yureka plus come over these problems? Also some people are also advising Redmi 2, Note 4G or Lenovo series( like 6000 plus, 7000 and k3 Note). Please put your views on these too.

You won't get better phones in this budget if bought offline. There are no lagging and overheating issues in Yureka here but A.S.S. is slow.

I personally don't like MIUI and will recommend to flash an AOSP based rom on Redmi 2 if you buy it. Note 4G isn't worth it. Won't recommend Lenovo phones as well.

What is A S S? Is it going to affect the performance of the phone? So basically I have to choose between YU, Redmi 2 or Moto E but is Moto E under 10k? It must be 2nd gen I am guessing.( I am for android phones. So Lumia is out of choice I guess).What about the after sales service of YU and Redmi 2? Is there servicing in my town BHUBANESWAR. Many thanks again.I used to rate micromax very high but a recent incident made me change my view. I brought a new battery because my old one did not charge. Why, I did not use my phone for sometime and when it did not get on, I put it to charge. The battery got puffed up and they said overnight charging did that(but my samsung Y 5360 for 3 years now never got this problem even if I put it to overnight charge). I had to buy a new battery but they said there is no warranty on this. I know Nokia gives 6 months warranty and may be other companies do too but no warranty on new products. Then what is the point of buying because it may get puffed like the old one very next day. Many thanks for your replies.

A S S= After Sales Support. Yu is a micromax owned company.

Redmi 2 is a good choice. The lite mode in the launcher is really helpful for old people.
For basic uses the ram is more than enough.
