I am looking for a good device under 8k and I zeroed in LG G2 16GB D802 model. I am getting it for 8.5k, the reason I want to buy it because of Camera, display and performance, though i would use it for whatsapp browsing and casual games like 8ball, Sudoku. And. I am more attracted to device because of its looks, please don't suggest Xiaomi or Lenovo because mind is more inclined towards Samsung, LG, Apple, Huawei, Asus.

G2 has a good developer support. Saying that check if it is compatible with 4g bands of India and the proceed accordingly. 8.5k is a good price

8.5k is not great for G2. Sahivalue sells used of them for less than 7k range. G2 came out 3 years back originally. D802 mean 4G LTE support on 1800MHz band only. Overall, I would not recommend it.

1800MHz band only
Does that mean speed will be comparatively low?[DOUBLEPOST=1476262761][/DOUBLEPOST]

It supports Supports both TD-LTE and FDD-LTE bands, is that enough? I am planning to install cm13 and then use it

@ron028 is the phone used or new old stock? From where did you buy? And total amount paid?
No its not a new phone, its a refurbished phone, all i know is they change parts and make it look as factory new. I bought it on aliexpress site. I paid 8.4k and luckily didn't paid any custom duties.
