Need suggestions on buying a new or old (max 2 month used) device. My requirements are :-
* LTE MUST
* 3GB RAM
* Good Battery Backup on regular use
* Min 5.2 display size
* Decent Developer support on XDA
Budget is 9000/- (140$) Hardly managed
I'm bending toward redmi 3s prime but that hybrid sim slot is real pain in ass.

What is your priority, Developer Support or 3GB RAM? I am almost certain you can't get both in this budget. This because such companies either use Meditatek processors and/or don't care to release sources which is required for development.
I would recommend k6 power(3GB ram, no dev support) or Redmi Note 3(2GB Ram at 10k, 3GB Ram at 12k, excellent Dev support).

Hit thanks if it helped.

Performance: Zuk Z2( a little better than Mi 5)
Development support: Mi 5
Budget: Le 2(or i would recommend redmi note 3/4)
Design and build: Mi5
Decide on basis of your priorities (budget vs dev support), I own a Mi 5 and can say it won't disappoint you.

I don't know which smartphones are available in your country but I don't think Xiaomi will be available so consider Moto E3 Power, Moto G4 play or if in budget, Moto G4.

I would actually buy the Honor 8 instead of the P9, almost the same, in every way, but nicer design and the fact that you can always buy it for around €200 - €230 here.

The honor 8 came out later and even has IR.

... Just my 1 ¢ (It used to be 2¢, but due to the recession I've had to make cutbacks)

Thanks for the alternative, but isn't the camera of the P9 superior than the Honor 8? Plus I like the metal body of the P9

That could be an issue, according to the specs:

P9: Dual 12 MP, f/2.2, 27 mm, Leica optics, phase detection autofocus, dual-LED (dual tone) flash

Honor 8: Dual 12 MP, f/2.2, 35mm, laser autofocus, dual-LED (dual tone) flash

But it seems like the P9 is a little better than the Honor 8. See for yourself.

Of course if you like the metal more, which I can't disagree with, glass is not all that good on a mobile, but I just love the pretty blue of the H8.

Hi guys,
I'm thinking about buying a new smartphone. My few requirements are:
1. Less than 5.5inch screen.
2. Atleast 720p HD.
3. 4G/LTE with all frequency bands support.
4. Minimum 2GB RAM.
5. Above average camera.
6. Good battery life.
7. Can be Rooted and has great Dev Support on XDA (Cyanogem, custom Roms etc.)

I was using Galaxy S5. Gave it to my grandfather. Miss it and still love it tbh.

Now using Iphone 5s (cousin's spare). Need to buy a new phone by the end of next month.

My budget is 400$ or less. Can be used for average gaming (medium to high end games) but more browsing..shoots..mails..productivity and customizations.
So please help.

Thanks in advance!
