General 10k budget, need smooth UI, reliability for long term use
1. Budget: 10,000 max
2. Display type and size: 4.5" or more
3. Dual sim: yes
4. Preferred choice of brand: any reliable brand
5. What camera option you want (flash, front facing camera): camera doesnt matter
6. Preferred operating system: android
7. Preferred connectivity options : 3G, 4G ready
8. Primary use of handset: reading books, surfing, calls, whatsapp, NO GAMING at all.
9. Any specific mobile phones in consideration: written below
10. Any other info that you want to share: i hate changes, so i wish to use the phone as long as possible (current phone is 5+ yrs old but i am ideally looking for a phome that would last 3-3.5 years). So removeable battery will be great feature allowing me to replace the battery backup weakens in 2 years or so. Although it seems like remiveable battery and fingerprint scanner cant exist together, i am willing to compromise with non removeable battery.
I dont need lightning fast performance for gaming but i am expecting smooth transition between apps, lag free whatsapp, facebook, Instagram. Shouldnt freeze every now and then.
Finger print scanner will be a very nice feature as i hate entering passcode everytime i unlock

A quick google search and i found these options.

Redmi 3s 3gb

Redmi note 3

Swipe elite plus

Coolpad note 3


Haven't considered other options due to my ignorance, wouldnt mind considering other options.
Please suggest something that suits my needs.

Would be buying Redmi 3s for my friend tomorrow's sale but in case I didn't got need a backup option as my friend wants to buy tomorrow itself. Budget = 7k. Not any heavy requirments just need good battery backup and A.S.S. and shouldn't lag for normal usage (Previous samsung user).

Tried that last time...didn't worked
Try in fk app only.
I got my 3s prime after some minutes, it finished on desktop browser.
7k model 3s only, moves fast.
You my not get choice in colours but get one at least.

Those want 3s only should try from flipkart app only. You have to add to cart as fast as possible.

Lenovo has announced which phones will receive Nougat and E3 Power is not on the list due to Mediatek cpu. However if you're ok with that then it might be a decent phone if battery life is important to you.
It has Mali T720 graphics which is very weak and not good at all for gaming.
Moto G4 Play is a better option as it will receive Nougat update although snapdragon 410 and Adreno 306 is very weak as well.
Also there is Samsung Galaxy On5 Pro. Similar specs to these two but replaces the cpu with Exynos 3475 and Mali T720 and 2gb ram/16gb rom but again most likely no Nougat update.
And finally Redmi 3S. Best specs but possibly worst after sales service support.

Moto G3 turbo is good but I don't think nougat update for it is coming . Having a Moto g and e both first gen , good phones to have with stock Android and very sturdy and fast . So I guess the newer Moto G3 turbo should also be quite good .

Sent from my HM NOTE 1LTE

Thanks guys!!
I was considering Lenovo k6 power because of better camera than Redmi 3s. But couldn't get it the last time. These phones are difficult to get in these kind of sales. Will try for lenovo once more.

I think Moto G turbo is available at VijaySales outlet.

Don't want to go for a 5.5 inch phone.
