This weekend we are surprised to find eBay hogging the deals chart as all the offers we have come up with are through sellers on eBay. Online retailers like Flipkart, Myntra, Snapdeal, Saholic, etc are miles away when it comes to offering discounts to its customers as compared to eBay. Let’s get started:
First up it’s the recently launched Sony Xperia Z Ultra smartphone that is loaded with some of the best mobile hardware components you will ever see. Powered by the blazing fast quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon SoC clocked at 2.2GHz, 2GB RAM, 6.44-inch display with 1,920 x 1,080 pixel resolution, 16GB internal storage, 8-megapixel rear camera capable of HD recording and a 2-megapixel front one, the Xperia Z ultra is the best smartphone from Sony till date. The smartphone is available for just ₹39,924 as compared to its MRP of ₹44,990.
Second in line the Xperia Z from Sony and this time the smartphone’s prices have gone down due to the launch of its successor – the Xperia Z Ultra. Available for just ₹31,784 from eBay, the Xperia Z boasts of a 5-inch display with 1,080 x 1,920 pixel resolution. Powered by the 1.5 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro quad core processor, the Xperia Z comes with 13-megapixel rear camera and a 2.2-megapixel rear one, 16GB internal storage, 2GB RAM and other usual refinements.
Just as a reminder, that both Xperia Z and Xperia Z Ultra are dust-proof and water-proof.
Samsung hogged the limelight a few months ago after releasing the Galaxy S4 smartphone and it is still one of the most sought after smartphones in the industry. Available for just ₹33,699 the 5-inch smartphone is powered by Exynos 5 Octa Core (1.6 GHz Quad + 1.2 GHz Quad) Processor, Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean, 2GB RAM, 16GB internal storage expandable using a microSD Card, 13-megapixel rear camera and a 2-megapixel front one. The smartphone comes with all the usual refinement and connectivity features.
If you are into Windows Phone smartphones and are not really bothered by the brand, we would recommend you go for the HTC 8S Windows Phone 8 smartphone available from eBay for just over ₹13,000. The phone comes with 4GB internal storage, 512MB RAM, 5-megapixel rear camera, 4-inch display with 480 x 800 pixel resolution protected by Corning Gorilla Glass, Beats audio and Windows Phone 8 operating system. The phone doesn’t comes with a secondary camera meaning that you will not be able to place video calls. This one may be a bummer. However, the phone is a good entry level Windows Phone 8 smartphone and if you are not willing to spend a whole lot on a platform you are not comfortable with yet, the HTC 8S may be a smart choice.
Last but not the least it’s the Chinese brand Huawei with its Ascend Mate smartphone. Not the most talked about smartphone in town, the Ascend Mate is definitely one of the most powerful smartphones out there. Boasting a 6.1-inch anti-scratch Toshiba IPS+ Corning Gorilla Glass display with 1280 x 720 pixel resolution the phone is powered by a 1.5 GHz Hi-Silicon K3V2 + Intel XMM6260 quad core SoC.
