    G5 Plus is currently available on offer from Flipkart @ 11 K for the 4 GB RAM/ 32 GB storage version. Is it worth it?

    Moto G range generally used to get some updates. Will this get Oreo at least?

    Moto G5 plus heats up normally when I play game(battle bay and clash royale) otherwise it was just fine with multiple chrome tabs opened simultaneously. Atleast 5 tabs I am talking about.

    But two noticeable heating issues I will point out.

    One is while charging. It gets really hot so avoid keeping it on bed or sofa while charging.

    2nd is if we are using phone under direct sunlight. He just takes mins to reach high temps especially when using phone case.

    Thought my phone is from the first batch when this was launched. I don't know if they have fixed all these issues.

    Another prospect should be MotoG5 S+.

    Has a mediatek SoC. You'll be on your own when company ditches update support for the phone.

    I am really sorry for the late reply.
    Hope you didn't buy K8. As Saiyan Goku suggested, stay away from mediatek SoC. If you change your phone almost every year then I guess it's not that bad. Only plus point I see here internal memory.

    buying Redmi Note 5 Pro 6GB version?
    is a good upgrade over OnePlus X? (Old device)

    Will be buying tomorrow, but I think it's little overpriced. +3k for 2 GB extra ram.
    6GB and 128GB looks better..

    As reported by multiple Tech Youtubers, 4GB version is VFM.

    Ok.
    But the person decided on getting 6gb version only.

    Or should I wait 1-2 week?.

    Any other suggestion than Xiaomi?

    I don't know about G6+. It may get announced in MWC. I'd go with A1 for stock android or Note 5 pro with custom roms instead of 7x. I don't like bloated UIs.

    Fill the questionnaire. 10.or E has stock android and higher storage/ram option than Redmi 4 at same price, not to mention a FHD screen as well.
