Otherwise its a good phone, but IMO, a bit expensive. Will get this or the Nexus 4. I've read the Nexus 4 has heating issues (?). That's a big NO for me. Still undecided though.
I got this offer in the local store ( with bill). I'm also confused between Nexus 4 , Xperia SP and One x+ ( not available in stores)

Almost made the purchase but then decided to read reviews for homeshop 18. Shockingly its got numerous negative ones. Do check their facebook page as its full with people getting defective products or not receiving at all.

I've done many purchases from hs18 and can vouch for them. They are as good as flipkart and not as expensive. Negative reviews about hs18 is news to me really!

Nexus 4.
Unless the lack of an SD card is a deal breaker

I have not done much research on their reliability. but heard they are reliable. I purchased Sam Tab2 from them couple of weeks back and was happy with the delivery, packing and the device I got.

Below is the link where you will find the details

So all your measurement freaks, the http://www.shopclues.com/ambrane-por...usb-ports.html is 10.5cm X 8cm X 2.25cm.

Now you better not ask the likely error in my measurement

After owning Xperia S and looking at the history of Sony, they have bad reputation for timely software updates. They release too many models and updates never come on time. However, Sony's hardware is very good.

If the software updates are non issue then you can select SP.

Android 4.3 is coming EXCLUSIVELY for Nexus 4.

Most of the other devices are still waiting for the 4.2 update, except S4.

I would not say so, the Android 4.3 update is not exclusive to the Nexus 4. Yes it is true Nexus devices get the update the first, and this update will reach the Nexus 4, Nexus 7, Nexus 10 and Galaxy Nexus will get it at approx the same time.
But, some other devices will get the update eventually..

Guys I wanted to purchase swift key from the playstore. But the playstore is rejecting my debit card saying cannot be validated. I usually add the card via google wallet, buy whatever I need and then again delete it. Dont understand why its getting rejected now.

I tried alternate route of purchasing swiftkey via amazon but amazon doesnt sell apps in India.

Have emailed swiftkey and google regarding the same since my card is working for every other site except the playstore.
