Should I wait for Snapdragon 820 phone or pick up a latest phone.


Broken In
Hi all,

I am going to purchase a new android smartphone by new year. After reading specifications regarding snap dragon 820 processor,
I am in a dilemma, regarding whether the wait is worth or can i pick up a latest smartphone within a budget of 25k. (I know the snapdragon 820 phones will be touching 30k. So I can extend my budget.)

Experts please guide and give me choices for purchase.

Snapdragon's best right now is 810 which I would like to avoid. That is the reason why I did not choose the Nexus 6P.
If I were in your position, I would wait till next gens (Snapdragon 820 & Exynos 8890) are coming out.
S820 phones wil be launched at 50k & price will come down to 35k in 6 months

For what purpose will you use your phone? That's the main thing

For most people even a S410 + 720p screen will do common tasks easily. I have seen people using latest flagship phones (S6, G4, 6S...) for just web browsing, fb, chatting, casual games & camera. If you are not into heavy games, Moto X Play is a great choice & a VFM phone. For a smaller device, Nexus 5X is good but 16GB internal kills the fun

With the launch of S820 & Exynos 8890, you might get S6, Note 4, G4 at around 25k (maybe by May 2016)... Avoid S810 devices

No, in short, but then again stuffs which will release later will be better than current gen anyway, the question is to what extent though.

There are plenty great phones already available, I don't know about that 25k budget, but I think Nexus 5X (I don't recommend LG at all, but people still use it) and Moto X Style should be your choice.
