Anything will work then - just go to the nearest trusted showroom and pick the one that looks nicest.

Thank you for your feedback
I'm nitpicking here but do you know if Real Racing 3 would work on the Grand?

It should because it works well on my Canvas HD which has similar hardware.

I dont think Canvas HD & grand shares similar hardware. Grand is dual core. Not sure if you are referring to grand quadro?
But i guess, thats also having different h/w, screen res etc than canvad HD.

All games i tried till now including shadowgun, temple run OZ, NFS MW loads & runs faster on canvas HD IMO.

As suggested above, please consider Xolo Play T1000 if you gonna be playing games. It got Nvidia multicore gpu, 1.5ghz Quad core tegra3 chipset.

Anyone interested in Crowd funding for an Android + Ubuntu dual boot phone?

The specs looks good.

If Ubuntu had introduced Unity as a phone interface, I might have liked it, but one glance on the desktop was enough to send me skurrying for MATE. No, I'm not interested in a Ubuntu phone.

if they are serious about Ubuntu, they should develop it for already existing mobile with excellent specs.

Guys: Need suggestion for phone for my wife. Budget is 20K, priority is Music and Camera and rugged phone (I have 2 toddlers). Also, it has to be android as it will be easy to access NAS, all devices at home etc along with Xperia Z.

She likes Xperia L but I read the camera is sad in that. Any suggestions pls.
