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

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
