Thats beta

You are on stable release

Suggest you stay on stable release as of now

 

You will receive miui ver 7.5 update soon via OTA which will have some features from miui 8

Guys. Wanted to ask how is P8000 mobile phone? I saw elephone website and found that it costs 230$ to buy plus custom duty which comes to 15000 approx. In India there is this brand called iBerry Auxus. I had their ST1 Stunner phone which sucked. Their support was also initially bad but after few legal threats fixed the hardware issue of ST1. Now I sold this phone but wanted to buy auxus p8000. The review of the phone is really good. It is a rebranded phone with warranty compared to original elephone phone without warranty. Plus the Indian one I am getting for 10990. Also I have heard P8000 is pre rooted. So should I go for that or buy another phone? I need a phone with good specs and p8000 has great specs. Saw P9000 as well but not available in India. Please let me know.

BTW is mediatek processor good or snapdragon 615 is good? I need a phone which is very fast & snappy. Gaming is ok for a while but wont play much game. Will also need sd card if possible. I saw snapdragon 820 with 3gb ram for 300$. Is there any phone available in india with the same specs?

 

BTW my budget is 12k

Mediatek is meh.

 

Also massive lol at Auxus brand. Stop even looking at such crap. If you had to resort to legal threats for legit warranty, why are you thinking about going for it again?

I know. They did fix my phone later on and gave me full warranty. But not without wasting my time. However I read that p8000 is a really good phone. And only Auxus is selling it rebranded with warranty. So was thinking of that. Else how is Mi Note 3 32gb?

Mi Note 3

Lenovo Note k4

Moto G

Meizu MX3

Which phone with snapdragon processor should I go? Any suggestions with the budget of max 11k - 12k

Bought the LG G5. Let's see how it goes. Expected delivery date is by 26th July.

 

The camera (wide-angle shots FTW!), performance and being able to switch the battery on-the-go is what intrigued me. In terms of looks and design, I think it's not the best, but planning to order a skin/cover. Any suggestions for that?

Got the phone yesterday. Liking it so far.

 

What's good:

+ SD820 + 4GB RAM works very well.

+ The phone looks better than it looks in photos and videos.

+ Battery life is good too. Fast Charge 3.0 is good! I got an extra battery with a Hybrid Charging Cradle free with the phone. Very helpful!

+ And I can't even begin to explain how awesome the wide-angle shots are. Best feature of the phone IMO! The main 16MP shooter is damn good, but the wide-angle lens is something else.

 

Downsides:

- The whole "Friends" thing is just gimmicky. I can't see myself buying any of the accessories. The best part is that the "modular design" helps with switching the battery.

 

- I know I said the phone looks better in person, but it's still way off than a flagship phone. It just can't compete with other flagships in terms of looks. If I look very closely and nit-pick, there are some terrible alignment issues on the design of the phone. It does not cause any problem whatsoever with day-to-day usage, but it is an eyesore if looked at closely.

How much did it cost you? And from where did you buy?

Guys. I am planning to buy a retro flip phone. Preferably new. Like Moto v9x. I initially though of Moto V3i which I had but got stolen. So I know that the phone is good for that time. I want to stay away from Smart phone and go to flip phone as that phone has style and capability to play mp3 and has 3G as well. So any suggestions I can get. BTW my budget is 4k. I can extend a little to 6k. But only of it is New scratch less condition.

Lol. None taken. I just have exams coming up so have to stay away from iPhone/Android or rather smart phone features. This is a temporary phone with basic features. I don't want Whatsapp etc. But I do want 3g connectivity, Mail app etc. And want a very sleek phone. So thus moto v9 flip phone.

That's actually some 'smart' thinking. And, Flip phones do look stylish..

Yes. But the same is not available in India. Only v9 is. So don't know what to do? Any other model I should look at?
