    Check in Big Bazaar, they have been selling xiaomi phones from last year. 5A is your only good option unless you want to consider newer brands like 10.or.

    Uhh not really . I want something with Cash on delivery options preferably. Anyways I found two phones that I like . Yu Yuphoria and Yu Yureka Plus. Now I really like the Yureka because of its 5.5in 1080p display and SD 615 SoC and tis only 5.8k . However its running Android 4.4 and I wanted to ask Yureka users here is it upgradeable or does it have decent custom ROMs ? Because otherwise I's rather go for the Yuphoria. Also how is the Canvas 1 ?

    Those are ~3 year old phones. Do not buy them. You'll regret it in a week.

    One of them used have blue tint while using camera. Not sure which one. Also, Micromax is not for providing timely updates to the OS. You will mostly stuck with what you have at the moment.

    Its a brand new entry in the smartphone market. I wouldn't trust them to be reliable this soon.
