My dad's nokia 8 also restarts frequently, now to the point that it's unusable. The Service Centre couldn't provide a battery however they said it costs around 3k. Please share the feedback of your new battery.

Hi Rohit, hope this battery website works out. I see a mobile no listed at site for support. Never used this site but had used a similar site operating from Noida. I needed only the touch part of mobile as screen was good. Physical store had touch + screen price. As always Google helped with online websites, saved money & happy, hope it works out for you as well.

I would not bother with a Nord. It is a significant step down from the K20 Pro when it comes to overall performance. The Snapdragon 765 isn't in the league of the now dated 855.

The flaw with Xiaomi is that their camera software isn't the best. No matter what I do, I simply can't get the camera to not interfere with the photo.
Thank you Sandeep, I will wait for a few days for the price drop of the K20Pro, with Nord 6/64 at 25K, K20Pro will have to drop it's price.
I am not too worried about the camera, I primarily use my cell for office work, emails mostly.

Oneplus has launched the Nord series of phones today and the specs are quite good for the prices:
8GB/128 : 27999
12 GB/256 : 29999
And to be launched later: 6GB/64 : 24999
Android Thread: Phones / Apps / Mods-screenshot_20200721210540.jpg
All the phones feature the Snapdragon 765 processor and a 90Hz Amoled screen.
I have been using Oneplus phones for the past 4 years now and am quite happy with them.

I have not tried an off the shelf camera app top see if it helps. I am sure it will.
It's a simple fix with ported Google Camera. You can easily find it on XDA or just by googling.
I have used POCO F1 and now K20 Pro (total almost 2 years) with GCams. To be honest, had GCam not being available, Xiaomi camera app was a deal breaker for me.
Its takes care of all cases of still photography and normal videos. The super slow motion is still rough.

I did look that up but can't find one for MIUI 12.0.1 build, which is what my phone runs.

I updated to MIUI 12 and the Gcam version that was there since MIUI 11 still works fine. I use GCam 7.2.010 by Urnyx05, version 2.3.

Any suggestions for a mobile within 15k? Looking for a non Mi, Oppo, Vivo one. Samsung M31 seems to fit the bill.

Is there any news in the media of a price cut for the K20 pro?

I don't monitor the phone scene in India all that much so can't say.
It maybe a while before they drop the price but worth keeping a close eye on when there are festival specials taking place.

Has anyone tried to use Dual Audio in Samsung? I am interested to know If one can stream music from phone to car HU and a bluetooth speaker simultaneously? I have oneplus and tried AmpMe but that could stream only to one receiver.

Guys I have a question around Exchange Offers. I tried a RTFF but that didn't throw up exactly what I am looking for.

If you guys buy a phone on Exchange Offer then the old phone gets collected simultaneously with the delivery of the new phone.
This does not give you the time to do a phone-to-phone transfer of apps, data and configurations.
An image backup doesn't work because the two devices will be different and hence the old image cannot load on the new device.
How do you solve this conundrum easily without indulging in an invasive backup procedure and the consequent piecemeal restore?

WhatsApp, Google Photos and all other Google Apps backed up to the Google Drive. Contacts anyway synced to Gmail. Games data can be synced to Gmail account. SMS Backup & Restore for backing up SMS and call logs.
