  1. I need a phone today under 15k and I need a qualcomm snapdragon, dual sim and do not want to buy redmi, xaomi, oppo, vivo or lenovo. LG, samsung or motorola preferred.
    Is there a phone you think fits in this range?
    I care about a good camera and may or may not have a micro SD sim. Please reply at earliest.

    • As per as your demands, Moto G5S Plus fits best. Beside this, you can also go for Nokia 6 which is practically very good smartphone under 15k.
