Doesn't S9 have horrible battery backup?

Very mediocre, yes. Though the screen and camera triumphs anything that a mid ranger throws at you today.

No point in getting it now. Samsung phones don't age well and it might not even get the next version of Android. It only has a 3,000mAh battery.

It will get Android 10 and that will be it as that will be third upgrade for it.

OnePlus falls in the category of most Value For Money phones. People with 40k budget shouldn't think twice before buying a OnePlus phones. You are missing on Camera and that's it. and I guess that's ok considering the fact that you are not shelling out the premium price of 55k+. I recently got a OnePlus 7 (non pro) and can't believe how under the radar it went. It's not on sale anymore and wasn't available for sale in USA so not much sales. The only drawback is haptic vibration which is as pathetic as the previous OP phones. Battery is amazing, display is AMOLED, updates are prompt, fast charge is superb and Camera is decent enough to solve the purpose. I have stopped carrying a Camera. Click pictures all day and you still won't need a power bank on a trip. Previous phone was OnePlus 3T which lasted 2.5 years for me. Only sold it coz battery went weak and got 9k value for it while selling. It was launched with Android M and got Android P before the OS updates stopped.

^^I heard that too but honestly I dont think that is gonna be a problem since I am around potential charging points like all day long. Plus fast charge means a short top up should see me through basic usage if needed.

I take it you won’t be considering asus 6z due to it’s lcd display?
It’s got a great camera, proc, battery, all around a good phone.

Nope. Need an excellent OLED screen since 90% of the usage of the phone is to watch content. 

 

@AtheK Yeah that is my line of thought as well. And the 3.5mm jack is a nice addition too.

I guess this will go here, i need a tripod that i can use to shoot at a small height like at a horizontal table angle or a 45 degree angel where i will mount the phone and make it look down a bit to shoot. Like on a bed to do some unboxings. Which tripod should i look for.

My primary shooters are my note 10+ and my note 5. And thus i need a phone mount as well.

The monfretto pixi mini has caught my eye but i have no experience with tripods so can you guys help out.

Mom vetoed the plan for the one plus 7T.

 

Decided to buy a Samsung M30s

Does Galaxy S9 have a better screen than K20/K20 Pro? I think the specs are more future proof on K20 but I don't like MIUI and the bloatware on these phones.

 

I picked up the Galaxy S9 plus. It is easily the best screen I have seen in a phone, like ever. Forget the K20, I  put it side by side to an iPhone 11, Oneplus 7T and its still noticeably better.

K20 and S9 use both use super amoled. S9 is last gen phone. Go for K20 pro or One plus 7 series. The latest miui11 is blazing fast and has some really useful features built in.

Even though K20(pro) uses an AMOLED display, its not as good as the ones in samsung phones. Heck even Vivo v15 pro's display is brighter than the K20's display.
I used to own a Galaxy S7 and upgraded to K20 now. I have seen both displays side by side and samsung one is far better. Colors are more vibrant and you get a lot brighter screen.

So the S9's display should be even better if not same as S7.

The only problem though I have faced with Samsung screens are the burn in, the keyboard specially. It's a characteristic of OLED screen though, Let's see how one plus screen holds up. 

 

I must say though that one plus screen is also brilliant. I definitely find it on par with S9+ screen of not better.

agreed. Unfortunate for me though I got a bad screen on my OP7 arrival.  Didn't bother returning because it was only visible at night. Now I regret it. Planning it to RMA just before warranty ends.

OK phone enthusiasts. I don't really follow the best phones etc, since I cannot spend more than 10k on a phone myself.

 

Anyway sis wants to get a new phone. Soft budget 30K, hard budget 40k. Main requirement swag, though a good camera and battery will be much appreciated. Please keep in mind, tech specs etc are of no value to her, as long as there's  minimal lag its fine.

 

Thanks in advance good folks.

I got my mum & sis Redmi note 8 (10k), pretty good for it’s price.

As for 30k budget have a look at Asus 6z, 5000 mah battery, amazing camera, great performance (SD 855 proc), If LCD screen is not an issue go for it.

Another option in this range would be OnePlus 7t (34k). Decent cam, beautiful screen (90hz), battery is 3700 mah but supports warp charging.

Heard good things about redmi k20 pro but never used it so can’t comment about it.

Forgot to mention no headphone jack in the one plus 7t, a deal breaker for some.
