Hi, you can go for the one plus 2 as well for the price you mentioned. I am using it from the past 1 year and i am extremely satisfied. Right now it retails for a shade below 20k.

My MIL has one. The problem is that it charges awfully slow on any other charger. Think 30%(64-94) in two hours from MI power bank. My Redmi Note 3 charged almost 80% in that period from another mi bank.

I love android+ the freedom it gives to customise your phone. - custom ROMs, launchers etc. I'm sure I use only the very basic customisation compared to what is actually capable. Most people don't use any customisation options at all.
Android is now moving the Apple way and I'm livid. My Redmi Note 3 was upgraded to Android 6 finally and the upgrade is horrible. Endless all crashes, especially when you share say from gallery to Instagram. Or endless times SwiftKey has lagged or hung. With miui8 you can't downgrade anymore. Plus you can't enter the typical recovery to wipe cache (which is often the recommended solution for an Android version upgrade). So I'm getting apple like policies with the update quality of a third tier Android manufacturer.

1. Good Camera Quality
2. Internal memory - Min. 16GB (Better if 32Gb or more)
3. No Hybrid Slot (can compromise on this if needed)
4. Should support LTE (If supports VOLTE, better)
5. Budget 10-15K Max.
6. No Samsung (no offense meant to Samsung lovers and owners)
7. Should be able to connect to Windows PC without any PC Suite.
8. Screen Size 5-5.5"
Check the relevant Asus phones. I think their camera for their laser series is fairly decent and often better than what you read about in reviews. A friend loved his prev gen Zenfone 6 esp for the camera.

Go for moto g4+ as camera quality is a priority. Otherwise Redmi 3S, RN 3 and LeEco Le2 are great.

Cyanogen Inc. shuts down. CyanogenMod is now discontinued.

On 23 December 2016, Cyanogen Inc. announced that they were shutting down the infrastructure behind CyanogenMod.[86] This was shortly followed by news that the main CyanogenMod project would migrate, renaming itself as "LineageOS".

How's the moto G4 plus? Are there any issues with it? I read in forums it's full of heating/ghost touch issues. Any other suggestions for a 15k budget?

Unofficial Lineage OS for OnePlus One has been born! They have started from where CyanogenMod has left.

It does heat but nothing more than what normally smartphones do. In fact I happened to use my BILs Redmi Note 3 and it heats like oven even with regular calling functions.

In the sub 15k category you can look at Asus Zenfone 3 Max or wait for the upcoming Lenovo K6 Note.

Official version of Lineage OS for Nexus 6 is released. Though respective developer has released it via google drive instead of download server (as infrastructure not yet ready). I am already migrated it over CM14.1 Dec 26 release on my Nexus 6.

Any feedback on how the moto G4 / G4 plus is in real life usage? I'm thinking of exchanging my nexus 4 with a moto G(x) where x = 4, 4 plus or z.

I am using Nova launcher, so can't speak about any changes in the Google launcher. There is a new quick launch option keys when you swipe once from top which is a good thing.

Also I am now having a small inconvenience in unlocking with swipe option. I don't use finger print scanner or pattern etc and use only swipe up option to unlock. Prior to update I could unlock with a very short swipe up and now after update the length of the swipe up is from bottom almost till the top, which is a bit annoying.

Will update further as I figure out new things.

Unhappy Re: Android Thread: Phones / Apps / Mods

Here is something I did not expect:

TL;DR - Dont depend on Mi Cloud for data backup.

I use a Mi5 and it has been backing up my data silently to the Mi-Cloud.
So far so good.

I wiped and reinstalled the the latest MIUI 8 Global ROM (rooted).
I did backup all my data to my laptop before I wiped the phone. It previously ran the Developer version of the MIUI ROM (also rooted).

Since I did not require any of the backed up data immediately (except Contacts, which Google restored almost immediately), I felt I could wait until I needed some of it; and then of course the Mi-Cloud would always have a copy.

Imagine my surprise when it came time to restore my data from Mi-Cloud, they've made it extremely inconvenient - you get to restore one piece at a time, e.g. one pic at a time.

So beware - save your data locally or maybe to Google Drive (I don't use it much, so cant tell you the pros and cons).
