Could someone please recommend a 5000-6000 mah power bank?
Don't want it to cost me a bomb, I would expect it to last me a year at least. Online reviews aren't giving me very reliable information. No substitute for first hand experience..!

I exchanged my nexus 4 for the nexus 6 a month back. I got it from FK at an excellent price of 23K (Listed 35K- Freedom Sale Discount 5K- 5K buyback for my nexus 4- 10% discount on SBI cards).

Even now I see it listed at 30K- Old phone discount.

At this price I think it is an outstanding phone. The qHD display is available only in the 35K plus phones. Battery lasts one day easily. And most importantly it comes with a turbo charger in the box. Which means it will charge from 0-~30% in 15-20 min. I also thought it may be a little too big. It is big, but found it easy to handle.

Price may fall when the Nexus 5 2015 launches. But they may take it off the market also.

Nexus 4 and 5 were the best and now i am waiting for the nexus 5 2015.
Thanks folks for the replies. Good to hear decent feedback on Nexus 6. The recent launch of Moto X Pure has made me thinking again. Though slightly small in size, Moto X Pure appears to be a much better phone than Nexus 6. Nexus 6 fans a may disagree, but that's what most of the reviews are indicating.

Go for something that can also act as media streamer. I use kingston mobilite 2. Perfect for converting wired to wireless, streaming files and also as a battery back up.

I bought it and i had issues with the GPS and so i could not use Google Maps. I tried all possible options but the GPS refused to work. It shows me at a place far off from the place i currently am at. Hence, put it aside.

Folks - Any views on whether the recently launched Moto X Play is a good buy? Seems to be a few grand more for a better processor, camera and battery than the Moto G.

There are 4 Moto G first gen in my family. We all got an update for 5.1 today morning and I have updated all to 5.1

As of now, there is some smoothness in operation of the phones. Lag has decreased. There are a few new things that were mentioned. I don't remember them as of now.

Got Mi4 replacing Mi3. Impressed with performance improvement and slightly smaller form size.
