    Could you possibly convert your budget in to English pounds or US dollars?

    Hopefully you will get this moved to "General Help And How To" for a better response.

    Try the MI3 that was recently launched in India. I Would suggest waiting for mi4 or the one plus one.

    Hang on.
    Moto G does not support SD cards. You will get only 8GB for your apps and movies together.

    Moto G has only a 4.5 inch screen.

    Moto G has only a 5MP camera. Thats too bad.

    Finally, non removable smaller capacity battery.

    You're correct, but the OP wasn't asking for any of that.

    FYI, the Moto G 4G does have an SD slot. The original G is the one that doesn't have one.

    The 4g LTE version of moto g has not been launched in India.

    As per OP's question I would recommend to wait for a Mi3 64gb version, if they launch it but 16gb one is also good enough.

    As the above poster mentioned, it doesn't sound like it's available in India yet. Sorry, but I'm in the US, and am not too familiar with the phones available in India.

    Mi3 is a phone by Xiaomi, this company has just entered the Indian market via the online store flipkart, the 2nd lot for the phone was sold out in 5 seconds.

    With a 441 ppi full hd display, Qualcomm snapdragon 800 processor and gorilla glass 3 as it's specs it is giving Samsung and Lg's flagship a hard time mostly due to it's damn cheap price of 14000Rs./234 $.

    You will have to register yourself to be a part of the next sales, for more information please check flipkart.

    Regarding desire 616 I recommend not to even consider it, leaving all specs apart just look at the Internal Memory provided, only 4gb out of which only 2 gb would be available to you for app installation.

    I would recommend you to go for Xiaomi Mi3 because of it's flagship line specifications and value for money or the Moto G which is currently available at a discounted price of 12000Rs./ 200$ for the 16 gb version, the rates have been reduced due to heavy competition offered by Xiaomi Mi3, I think.

    Rest do your own research, check youtube vidoes and reviews.

    They have service center in all major cities, I would recommend you to check that list, if your city is listed then there should be no problem also in my experience if the phone does not have any manufacturing defect then one just need not visit the service center and in case of manufacturing defect Flipkart has a 30 day replacement policy, had a issue with my Nexus7 and they arranged a door step replacement.

    Anyways the Moto G is also without doubt a very good choice for an average user.

    I disagree: IMO its also a very good choice for an above average user, particularly since 4.4.4 has noticeably speeded things up (not that it was appreciably slow before).

    Sure, an extra gig of RAM would be nice but I can live with 1G, and if a decent camera is important to you then you may wish to look elsewhere (never use them myself). So as others before that would be my pick at your price point.

    Yep, go with the 16GB Moto G (more storage is always better), and you will also get a guaranteed update to Android L
