Now I need a 4G phone with Dual SIM and if available Volte. I find the htc Ten not a dual SIM. I have been advised to look at One Plus Three T which is Volte Also. I find the reviews quite mixed, either brilliant or poor. What other options do I have?
Budget no bar : Galaxy S7 edge
Best battery and VFM: Redmi Note 4

I'm using a Redmi note 3 for almost a year now and no issues with Jio (using since July)

Was going through the Mi website yesterday and really liked the Note 4. Unfortunately stocks are out for all variants. Is there a weekly/fortnightly sale for this phone going on any online shopping portal? How can I buy one? I liked the 4GB RAM 64 GB version in black.

Guys, what should one get for about 35k?

OP3T, Samsung Note 5/S7/C9 Pro or iPhone 6s?

If its iPhone, get the 7. I see lot of good reviews on the 3T; if its Samsung I suggest the regular s7 instead of the Edge. I have one, and looking to move to a LG V20 or a G6 soon.

I would also look at the SAMSUNG Galaxy A9 Pro. Bought one for my mom.

Great screen, long battery, dual sim and premium feel.

What would be the size of these both phones? Smaller than S7 or comparable [atleast].

I myself got the S7 and it has been a great 3 months. Though wish, it had the regular [new] iPhone size at 4.7 inch.

V20 looks huge, but sturdy build. G6 I have not seen yet, but from the reviews it look sleek and smaller than iphone 7 plus.

Thanks and wish you a very happy birthday

iPhone 7 and the Samsung S7 Edge are unaffordable, as they will cost 50k minimum. Moreover, the iPhone 7 does not have a headphone jack.

I am leaning towards the iPhone 6s 32 gig version.

I am looking to buy a phone for my daughter. The key requirement is a good camera. Fingerprint scanner will be a desired feature as well. Budget is Rs 10000.

The only decent phones within that budget are the Redmi Note 4 (2GB RAM version), the Redmi 3S Prime and the Lenovo K6 Power. None of these are good on the camera front though.

I would suggest you to increase your budget and buy the Moto G5 Plus, which will go on sale from Wednesday.

1)Bigger screen
2)Bigger battery
3)Lastly since it was for my mother - she was more comfortable with the now quite usual samsung skin on android.

I expect it to launch here in SG around mid-end March. And my contract is up for renewal in April.
May still go for the V20 (after checking side by side with the G6)

Maybe good to wait for a month (if you can); the launch of S8 may reduce the price of S7. And as I said earlier, the edge is wonderful to look at, but is a very delicate piece to manage. The normal S7 maybe a better option.
I use the iPhone 7 as the work phone, and so far have not found the issue of lack of headphone jack as an issue. The package comes with the small adapter in case you use your own headphones (other than Apple).

I think Asus Zenphone is the best in the <15k range on cam. I read decently good reviews on Moto G4 Plus cam (starting 12,500/-) as well and some on Honor 4 or so.
