What are the best deals available currently, if I buy oneplus 8t/8 pro now? Or should I wait for the republic day sales? And, any better options to look for other than OnePlus? Samsung S20+ was coming for around 49k but the Exynos processor is sh*t, as complained by many users.
Requirements – Better Camera setup, and Durability. Not gonna play High end Games, but still Recent processors will be a big plus.

Look for 3k or 5k instant discounts on some cards. That’s the best deal you could get. As of now Oxygen OS Android 11 updates are crap with innumerable glitches. It might take some more months to stabilize.

Names, I need to keep an eye on? I can think about 855/865 also, if they have great quality cameras. kg+

If you want best cameras then don’t buy oneplus, they are not that great.. Snapdragon 888 phones will start launching in January, I don’t know the names but every major brand will be launching a new phone..

In the current market there isn’t any single phone which really stands out.. So if you can then wait till Feb, you’ll get plenty more options and besides that existing phones with 865 will get cheaper

If I were still to pick something up now my choice would be s20 series or the oneplus series depending on requirements.. Besides go and check out these phones in hand.. Might make it easier to decide

Probably wait if u can! Samsung is coming up with exynos 2100 which seems to be a lot better than previous versions!
Also i own 8t, which is a bit unstable right now, every update has a new glitch!
Can’t think of any other android phone rn!

Buy a 20k phone. Maybe invest or speculate the remaining 30k. And then recover the cost of 20k. Sell the 20k phone n repeat. 😀😀😀 It is a good hypothesis though.

S20+ is a good option even if it comes with exynos I will prefer it anytime over OnePlus.
Reason : Build quality of OnePlus is not that good, I bought op6 in past and its display shattered in a single fall and surprisingly the tempered glass was intact.
Moreover oxygen updates are more of bugs then stability, unusual heating issues after update are normal back then Don’t know about it now.
S20+ display is best in segment.
If you need more information about OnePlus 8 and 8T you can join the Facebook group of oneplus users.
Moreover if you aren’t restricted to android then iPhone 11 is a great option, iOS is smooth and stable, its size is compact and camera is also good enough.
Moreover it’s just my experience and my views on each of these brands, it may vary from user to user.

Haan, will think about that too, if I get them around 50-60k, though, I’m more inclined towards android. Thanks, anyway., Kg+ smile

For camera – Apple, Samsung & Google. Since you’re preferring Android you can opt for Samsung if you get a good deal on Samsung flagships even with known issues of Exynos. New series is launching in January end according to rumours hence prices may come down further on current models. Also check on battery feedback of S20+ before finalizing.

Pixex 4a is there at a lower price point but it lacks certain perks of Samsung & Apple flagships.

Hmm, in previous sale, s20+ was available at 50k and with some offers, exchange – could’ve saved 2k-3k-4k more, but I was not confident between Samsung with Exynos processor and OnePlus with SD865! Samsung will be first choice for sure now : ) thank You.

+1.
It actually depends on what you need even SD 7xx series is capable of handling all tasks that SD 8xx handles so it is totally upto him.

Nope. Samsung devices don’t come with international warranty (you have to pay extra for that) but you can get pixel/Samsung in that bracket. Oneplus is shit with their new models.

check OLX bro. you can find many sellers if you are in pune. 6T is available from 15-18k 7T from 20-24k. check the of physical buttons to know if the phone is extensively used or not. i recently bought a 6T for 14k. it was a good deal. had to visit oneplus service center for cleaning the phone which they did for free.
