Which Mobile Handset to Buy – Need guidance..!!

I have been trying to read specs, price and reviews of so many handsets available in India and am now fully confused. Pls help me which model I should purchase based on following attributes. Help me do a balancing act Pls.


Your feedback inputs will help me a lot. Thanks in advance.

Big Screen (Must at least 4.75)
Nothing less than 4.75 and upto 6 is fine.

Near Stock Android experience (Strong inclination)
My experience has shown that Samsung or any other modified OS is always having lot of crap and cannot be removed easily (Android though never iOS or others)

3GB Ram (MUST)
This is crucial as lags are very painful. (4GB Ram seems not really having many choices) and I love using multiple apps

Dual SIM (Preferable)
Preferable but not absolute must. I mean I know single SIM has better choices.

4G LTE (MUST)
For both Airtel and other providers in near future

Good Brand (Highly preferable)
As customer support of one plus one MI Xiaomi etc based on reviews is very pathetic


Budget
No fixed budget as would like to use phone for at least a year heavily. I have one Nexus 6 hence seeking suggestion for another one rather than going for another Nexus 6.

Moto Turbo I guess
Moto Turbo Price in India - Buy Moto Turbo Black 64 Online - Motorola : Flipkart.com

ticks all boxes pretty much
dunno if itll support LTE in India,very few phones support that
it has 2100 LTE band if that helps(not sure if thats the airtel one)
has near stock android
has 3gb ram
3900mah battery
21mp camera

Moto Turbo is a great phone & better than Nexus 6 (except for larger screen, which some people prefer)

Also airtel has 4G in 2300 band
Reliance jio has 800 MHz band too in addition to 2300.....

OP, I would like to suggest you Sony Xperia Z3 Dual, which is an imported phone, but it fills all your requirements(dual SIM too)
Deal 05 Sony Xperia Z3 Dual SIM | eBay

Check out LG G3 and LG G4.

Edit: Don't have a fixed budget? :confused:

wow LG G4 is almost true to what i want.

But is it having near stock experience or will LG modification OS screw it?

Also never ha LG phone earlier. Whats overall experience of people who had it?

4G in India will take a long time to get implemented,infact 3G itself is actually not fully tapped ie its full speed and potential and even its range isnt fully implemented yet

about TDD and FDD, they are basically 2 different types of 4G
99% of the world uses 4G TDD LTE,
India and china decided to use FDD LTE for god knows what reason

very few devices support FDD making it another major minus for 4G in india

LG makes excellent phones
their roms are near stock,slightly bloated but more or less usable and the most of the bloat is actually usable unlike samsungs touchwiz

Id still take the Moto Turbo though,its a monster of a phone !!
 
Why do you need 4G speeds in your mobile ???

I'm happy with even 3G speeds..... Just sad by the fact that data prices won't come down any soon....

I'll suggest you Moto Turbo as it is a great phone

LG G4 is also great but its battery life is average (not flagship worthy..... info from GSMArena)
LG's UI has been modified a lot like Touchwiz, but its smooth (P.S. : Touchwiz is also smooth nowadays, ever since Lollipop....)

You can get S6 (maybe the edge version) if you want...
