What's Great 

Pricing  

Priced at Rs.4699 on Amazon that's the cheapest you can get a phone with such features

Fingerprint scanner

The fingerprint scanner is pretty decent especially for this price category

What's not great

Software bugs

The phone hangs a lot. The company should consider giving an update or do something about this.

Should you buy it?

At Rs.4699 on Amazon, this phone is Ok for a budget user. It's the only phone in the sub 5000 category with these features such as fingerprint scanner, selfie flash, and dual camera. The other option in this category is the Intex Dual camera which is slightly higher than this.

Yepzon GPS tracker


With rising crime technology it offers good preventive solutions. While the Chinese unbranded GPS trackers have been in the market for some time now, Yepzon comes with branded GPS trackers, for a price though.

Yepzon works on all key smartphone platforms, no personal information or user credentials are required. The device takes hardly a minute to pair with the phone and the battery can run upto several weeks with one charge. Yepzon device works on a nexus between cloud, mobile signals,  3G/GPS mobile service with a compatible positioning technology.  Together with the device and a smartphone, the person in need of help can be tracked in seconds, regardless of whether the person is indoors or outdoors or on the other side of the world.

What's Great

Accurate tracking

Yepzon uses Google maps along with indoor Wi-Fi positioning with 3G and GPS technologies. Especially useful for elderly people, people who can't communicate, children and pets.

What’s not great

Starting price at Rs.4,999 is a little high

Should you buy it?

If you have an elderly person who can’t communicate or a patient this can be a great product considering its effectiveness in tracking plus it’s a branded product.  For inanimate objects, there are cheaper options available.


Bluetooth Speaker with Karaoke

Digitek DBS011 is a tube-shaped 20W Power Amplifier with Bass Control. The 5.25” hi-fi speaker produces high fidelity sound, comes with an external TF card, USB socket, mini control keys for selections and volume adjustment for easy operation. It also includes a Karaoke Mic which can be attached for singing. Plus you can hang it on your shoulder and carry it along. There is also a built-in digital decoder for decoding and playing Mp3 files and low distortion. It is priced at Rs.4995.

What's Great

Amplifier

At 20W it's got a powerful bass output.

What's not Great

Karaoke mic quality lacks quality. Overall product quality needs more focus.

Should you buy it?

There are so many options available in the sub 5000 category as far as Bluetooth speakers are concerned. Karaoke was one the special points of this product and it lacks quality. It’s selling at Rs.2970 in Amazon and if high bass and amplifier are what you looking then this may work.
