You could get the OnePlus One 64gb for 22k or the 16gb for 19k. Although I prefer the nexus 5, OnePlus One is pretty good too. You'll need an invite tho

I think on Tuesdays you can buy OPO's without an invite now. But I also prefer the N5. I had a OPO but sold it for another N5.

I disagree, the battery life on the nexus 5 is the main weakness of this phone. You have to lower every setting basically to get more SOT. And your mobile signal has to be strong plus turn off wifi and location services when you're not using them

HTC M8 and G3 are expensive here.

Nexus 5 however is around 25k and thats my budget.

I am using oneplus right now. Want to get rid of it.

I don't find it smooth enough like ASOP and the phone is extremely fragile ( I am too scared to use it as daily driver ).

I know that the general consensus is the the N5's battery sucks, but my experience has been vastly different. I have no issue making it through the day with around 4-5 hours SOT. That's a-ok in my book.

You're one of the lucky ones. I've learned to live with the battery life, since November 2013. I have multiple chargers everywhere and 2 power banks to keep this device topped up

4-5 hours SOT is good, isn't it ?
all I want is for the phone to run throughout the day with my data on..

This is scary ?
I probably should stay away from this device.

I once used xiaomi mi3 with asop kitkat rom. The rom was the fastest thing I ever saw in any cellphone.
I compare all other phone with it so even opo was a disappointment to me.
The only thing that will satisfy my hunger is Nexus Devices with pure android os, I guess.

which phone would you suggest ?
I want good battery with fast, smooth experience ( I don't do gaming so frame drop during gaming doesn't matter ).
