Turbo charger works as advertised but if you use turbo charger for charging, the phone will heat up a bit (So don't use your phone while charging)

I think even Redmi Note 3 32GB should sufficient for your needs

If 16GB storage isn't a problem, you can have a look at Nexus 5X. It has one of the best cameras of 2015

You can check this one too, LG G4, no warranty though (It seems to be the same as Indian G4)
NEW Imported LG G4 Leather Duos Dual SIM 32GB 3GB Brown | eBay

Or Xiaomi Mi5, maybe

There are no good Samsung phones at your budget. S5 isn't good enough for 20k now

In the zone
Galaxy J5 & J7 said to be launching today.

Can check them out. Not sure if they fit the bill / will they be worth their price.

Redmi note 3 otherwise.

I would say get One plus X or Redmi note 3 sadly both of them don't have service center in mangalore. These phones are lot better than Samsung.

I would advice against moto X play nothing special on that phone and is overpriced.

How does redmi note 3 compare with samsung galaxy J7 2016 specifically camera & display?
J7 costs 4k more & has less memory. How much memory does one need 16 or 32GB?

Important: Please let me know if J7 supports OTG.

redmi comes with android 5. How do I update it to v6?

btw, the samsung service center in mangalore has bad reviews online.
Does anyone here have first-hand experience with them?

There aren't any reviews of J7 but RN3 display has more pixels, so that will make a bit of difference

Camera.... Both have decent cameras, but a detailed review of J7 is needed to see which one is superior

Last year's J7 had a decent display n camera. So this year's J7's will be better. If want a good after sales, get Samsung J7

Right off the assembly line
Samsung J7 2016 if you want a Samsung Device, runs on the Android lollipop operating system. On the imaging front, it offers front and rear snapper with Autofocus and LED flash to give quality pictures. Its solid battery provides long lasting backup. SD card, Bluetooth, 3G and 4G.

You can go for the following devices:

HTC One E9s
HTC Desire 828
Sony Xperia C4 Dual
Sony Xperia M4 Aqua

These phone models are both well known for music quality as well as camera (C4 has front camera flash, both HTCs come with UltraPixel front cameras).

I really wouldn't recommend anything else considering your requirements. All four of the above models come with NFC, which is not often found in this price range. If gaming is a priority for you, I would recommend going for the M4 or the One E9s instead of the other two options.

As far as I know, both HTC and Sony have service centers in Mangalore. Samsung's Galaxy J7 (2016) has too few sensors for a device that sells at that price.
