Guys, need your help:

I need a 5"+ Android with dual SIM and a premium look. Open to any brand.

Currently looking at the 5.5" OnePlus3T (64gb) at 30k or the 5.15" Mi 5 (32gb) at 22.4k.

What do you recommend?

One plus 3T without doubt. Mi5 has signal problems and has average reviews. It is not a match for one plus 3t.

OnePlus 3T any day. Quoting from an article - Its the nexus that Google did not launch in 2016 - absolutely spot on.

Specs look good except the helios chip. Personally I prefer snapdragon processor since custom rom development is more active for it. If mid range phones are fine then redmi note 3 is also a good option.

Bad Luck I was not able to grab Redmi 3S Prime yesterday.
Guys how is Coolpad Note 5? The Specs look good for a budget phone. If its good in Camera Quality, I would like to go for this phone for my wife.
If not I would buy Moto G4 (16Gb version) that is having discount of Rs. 2000/-currently.

Please suggest which phone to buy within 10K at the earliest. I want to finalise by today evening.

I like the moto for its stability, ergonomics, stock android interface and camera.
Redmi for the features and vFM tag. Not seen coolpad note 5 yet. Seen a friend using cool pad note 3 and he is pretty happy about it.

BTW - Saw a popup for a system update on my Moto G3. checked it, but not the software update window does not open up yet. Is moto giving g3 Android N?

Thats what I am confused between Moto G4 and Coolpad Note 5.
G4 for Stock Android, Stability, Reliability, Separate Slot for Micro SD card.
Coolpad Note 5 for Gold Colour, Looks, Internal Memory of 32 GB.

Hence confusion.

How is the Camera Quality of Coolpad Note 3?

I am using Coolpad Note 3+. There are lot of bugs in the UI. Camera quality is average. The Company does not give frequent updates.

I suggest you to go for the MotoG4/G4+

Oneplus 3T is the best phone by a big margin.

I read on facebook that the Indian version is getting a Qualcomm chip.

Guys I need a good contacts/phonebook app with two main criteria:

1) it doesn't connect real-time with the phone contacts. It should import the contacts and be independant of the default contacts even if those are deleted or edited.

2) it should not upload my contacts to any of it's stupid server for whatever reason. I find that so unnecessary. I can keep my own backup!
Ok, I know there are a couple of thousand out there so easily available but these two criteria are missing.

See, my need for this arises because my Lenovo Note3 randomly auto-deletes random contacts on the sly in the background. Now it's lost on me as to when, why, how many or how frequently it does this but it doesn't delete all contacts. Just some random ones dissappear without my knowledge and I get to know only when I go searching for it and then come to know that it's vanished. Happening since almost a year now.

So I need a better more reliable option. Does anyone else notice this?

If Moto Z play passes your test for looks (do consider the mod options http://www.motorola.in/products/moto...to-style-shell), it is a fantastic phone. Pure android and a battery that lasts almost two days on 4G. I have been using one for some time and just love it.

Guys, wanted to know how is the update for Redmi note 3 MIUI 8.1.1.0

Does it address the battery issues that some of us have. My phone's battery lasts really long but for the past few days, there's a dip in performance of nearly 30%. Usage is more or less same. I have scanned for virus but eveything seems to be ok. Last time this happened, I had reset the phone and the battery performance was back to being amazing.

Do I need to reset the phone again. Will there be any issues if I reset the phone once a month.
