It's 7K as per the service centre and definitely not 20K.

I will ask my son to recheck. I guess it may be another model, and I am mistaken there. It may be MotoX 2nd Gen

Anyone here got the lollipop update on the Mi3? I checked and did not get any OTA updates.

I'm on the MIUI 5.0

Same case with the MotoG gen 1.

If picture quality is your top priority then don't buy the MotoX, look at some top end Sony or Samsung. ...
I'm very tempted by Sony. The trouble is that I have never been a big-money spender on phones: I'd rather buy hifi! hey ho. I suppose there's always a first time and, so long as the phone gives several years (I would hope for three-plus) service, and does not get broken, stolen or lost, then the capital cost gets forgotten soon enough.

But my main reason for quoting your post was to say thank you for your very useful comments on photography.

It is matter of taste whether you want a stable upgrade or be the first kid on the block. If you want a fast update irrespective of bugs then a Nexus is what you need.

Be happy that you have not yet got lollipop. My nexus 4 is plagued with poor battery life after upgrade

Finally got an India specific invite for the OnePlus ONE.

Quick question, if I order now do I get the Cyanogen 11S or just plain Android 4.4 ??

Congrats ! You will get Cynagen 11S but no future OTA updates from Cyanogen. However you can install the update manually. One plus has also released a test version of Lollipop ALpha ROM.

Hi Spookey, I have an international version but have stopped getting any updates after the first week. What's you status? Also if you can please share your CM version details.

Or maybe spend on phone-in-camera type thing instead of camera-in-phone?

Something like this: Panasonic's Lumix CM1 smartphone-camera hybrid

IMHO better than equally expensive iPhone.

Guys,

I have three INDIAN invites for the OnePlus ONE to give away. Strictly for personal use. (valid for today)

Please PM with your email ID. Would appreciate if you share future invites (that you receive) on Team-BHP itself.


Cheers
