But I raised a request again and kept on calling them for two days and they replaced without any options.

On Sunday i.e. 01-Jan, I upgraded my One Plus 3T to Oxygen OS 4. All went through fine and now moved to Android N. The only issue faced so far is that I cannot switch users from the settings -> users option.

Has anybody faced a similar problem or know how to switch users?

Purchased the OnePlus 3T this morning from Amazon. Expected delivery tomorrow evening. This is for my wife who has been using iOS since 2010 . I hope she makes the switch seamlessly. She has an android TAB that she uses intermittently, so thought would go for the OnePlus. Wanted a dual sim phone for Jio...

let me know if it comes with any protective casing.
Amazon is promoting a silicon type casing along with the phone purchase.

Thinking of getting one as well.

Those same cases are available on PayTM with 30% cashback, give it a try. I bought Nillkin one. Spigen is also available.

Sorry the budget has been lowered and is fixed at 10K.
The phone would be for my wife.
She uses WhatsApp, and the Primary Camera would also be used frequently (not everyday though). And she does not like 'Hanging' phones. The other requirements posted earlier remain same.

So I had finalised Redmi 3S Prime (32GB). But the "Sale Buy" Process is not enticing.
Any other option for me? Which Asus Zenfone is good in camera quality in <10K?
Is Moto G 4th Gen good in Camera department? If yes, I would go for the 16GB version if I could not fetch the Redmi 3S Prime in tomorrow sale.

If that was even possible, wouldn't it be a major security issue?

Guys: is this possible? I don't even like an ISP having access to my router, let alone a sales company having access to my phone.

Thad, Flipkart will ask you to install their diagnostic app to do this test. After that you can uninstall the app.

Yes Vid is right. I had to install an App and run it as asked by FK technician and then based on the report showed by the App they assess whether mobile has any mechanical or manufacturing defect.

Sorry for not elaborating it earlier.

No problem; thanks for the clarification. OK so I'm paranoid, but it still leaves me a little uncomfortable.

My phone Samsung Galaxy S3 finally conked off after serving me for good 4.5 years. I am now in the market for a new phone with a budget of 15K.

I have been reading about RedMi phones and my colleague bought a RedMi Note 3 recently and is quite happy with the phone. He received a marshmallow update as well.
I was browsing their site and found that Redmi 3S+ has a better processor (Octacore) compared to Note 3's hexa core and Note3 comes with 3GB RAM that is better than 3S+ with 2GB RAM.

I am now confused between these 2 phones and also 3S+ is offline exclusive. So I have to visit a store to buy one (Need to find where it is available). I am very conservative when it comes to phones and intend to keep the phone for a long time.

Any recommendations? I am open to other brands if they are better.

Never be fooled by relating performance to the number of cores in the chipset. You're statement is like saying Fords 1.5 Petrol is better than the 1.0 Ecoboost because it has got 1 extra cylinder.

Coming to your question, I'm sure Moto G4 plus would be a good buy at the price point. I would give the victory to Moto G4 plus because of it's camera and stock android. Personal opinion- but I hate MIUI.

I recommend G4 Plus being a user from the day one of its release in India. Its a wonderful and no non-sense phone at the price range with the stock android. Also to mention, it has already received Nougat update and there are a few very good features like shortcuts, multi screen view etc.
