    Hi,

    I am using a Moto G 1st Gen bought in Feb 2014.

    I am looking for recommendations for an upgrade. My budget is 12-13k. Preferably, Moto or Lenovo

    Key requirements
    - should have stock Android
    - smaller the screen size the better (used to the 4.5" screen)
    - high pixel density
    - high battery life

    Good to have
    - above average camera
    - gaming

    He needs to change the company.
    After 11 months of G4's launch all the updates were stopped saying that it is an old phone. G4 plus kept on getting the updates btw.

    The redmi is sold out currently and the Asus is not available.

    Also, I know Moto is not the Moto it used to be (Lenovo indeed did a good job of screwing it :emoji_angry:), but I am looking for a phone which will last me 3-4 years at least. And Moto phones are known to be that long lasting. Or has that also changed? :emoji_confounded:

    Besides, my budget is very tight. On FlipKart, I am getting a buyback of 2500 for my current phone on buying G6 Play, which effectively makes it <10k for me.

    Moto G6 Play is garbage if you are tight budget then either get Moto G5S or honor 9 lite(3GB version) or even zenfone 3
    https://www.amazon.in/Asus-Zenfone-...UTF8&qid=1531843129&sr=1-1&keywords=zenfone+3

    https://www.amazon.in/Moto-Plus-Lun...s&ie=UTF8&qid=1531843168&sr=1-3&keywords=moto

    Honor 9 Lite (Midnight Black, Sapphire Blue, 32 GB) Online at Best Price with Great Offers Only On Flipkart.com

    Among these three zenfone 3 has best camera and is running Oreo but battery is bit lower around 2600Mah but I am getting 6-7 hrs of SOT on this phone with mixed usage

    Moto G5S if you want metal build phone and want near stock android

    Honor 9 lite if you want a beautiful looking phone
