I was confused as what should I purchase to gift my mom for this Diwali, I had limited capital and was looking for something unique which will help my mom and also be productive for her in day to day use and finally I opted for smartphone for my mom, but the question was which phone should I gift her because I was running short into cash and being a tech junkie I wont compromise on quality and performance. I wanted to gift her smartphone for only for Whatsapp where she can save a lot on her recharges as my mom is a Tupperware dealer and she constantly needs her phone. So I thought that a smartphone can help her by texting to her customers and also sharing the product images via whatsapp which can save her time and money.So I had decided in my mind that I need a smartphone which has a decent screen size and the performance should be great. Finally, after some quick searches with the help of tools provided by Quikr I came across an ad where Asus Zenfone 5 was being offered for 6k and the location was near my place. So I clicked the ad and the image of the product displayed and along with it the information related to the ad was mentioned that it was 6 months old phone and seller needed urgent cash.
I immediately dialed the number mentioned on the ad and the person answered me that he has posted his ad on Quikr. I began asking about the condition and the reason for selling his phone and the seller answered all my questions in an appropriate manner. I was convinced that the product was not of any stolen or something weird and decided to meet the very next day as he needed urgent cash.Next day,I withdraw cash from the ATM and headed straight to Kandivali (East) on my bike which was barely 20 min from my place.It was hot sunny afternoon and the weather was too hot. I reached the person’s home where he welcomed me inside and offered me water and asked for some refreshment which I refused.Finally, he displayed the phone to me and he had already kept the box and the accessories along with the invoice on the table. I explored through the phone and found that there are some scars on the back cover and the volume panels have shrinked inwards.I asked him the reason to sell his phone where he replied that the phone is working smoothly just some scars and the panel issue which was minor but he said he needs immediate cash as he is traveling and didn’t revealed anything else. I further explored the phone and the accessories where I found the earphones were not present to which he answered that he lost it somewhere.I also verified the invoice copy and found everything is perfect and finally asked him his offer to sell the phone to which he was not ready to bargain but finally I made a deal to his given price which was quite reasonable and paid him the cash and took the phone along with me.Later, on the day of Diwali I gifted the phone to my mom and she was really happy and my day was made.
Here are some snaps of the phone which I purchased through a great deal :-
My mom started using the phone to click images of her TupperWare Products :-
The overall experience was really great and straight forward right from my first visit on Quikr till the time I purchased the product also I want to take this opportunity to thank BlogAdda & Quikr for the campaign and making my Diwali one of the best I had so far.
