Even though festivals are traditionally the times when you get the best gadget deals, things are changing. There now seem to be round-the-year discounts on gadgets and tech products, some of which translate into some fantastic deals. Here are some of the best deals available right now.

Moto X Force

34,999 ( 49,999 before price cut)

Moto X Force was the first phone to offer a shatter-proof screen, but the price puts it in direct competition with the likes of iPhone 6s and the Samsung Galaxy S7, which are far superior to it in terms of camera, features and utility. The recent discount is one of the biggest on any Motorola device until now. This is a big screen phone with a 5.4-inch AMOLED display with screen resolution of 24560x1440p. The ballistic nylon finish on the back lends it solidity and better quality grip. Powered by Qualcomm’s high-end Snapdragon 810 quad-core processor with 3GB RAM, the phone delivers top-notch performance. It runs the latest Android with a clutter free interface. It packs in a 21-megapixel camera, which does well for the most part.

Micromax’s first laptop is a very reliable entry-level notebook for casual users or for students looking for an affordable netbook for daily use.

Powered by Intel’s 4th gen Atom processor with 2GB RAM in tow, the device can handle full HD movies and multi-tasking as smoothly as any of its rivals. It runs a full-fledged Windows 10 OS. Micromax hasn’t overlooked the connectivity aspect and included 2USB, 1 HDMI ports and a micro SD card slot which allows users to expand storage to another 64GB.
