The Mi A2 is available with some pretty good offers. It was available 2 days back for an extra Rs.3000 off on exchange, and a couple of weeks before that it was an extra Rs.2000 off. Amazon Prime day should be coming up soon, and I'm sure that it'll be available at a deep discount again. Also the Poco F1which is at 18,000 today should be on offer again.
They're not on your list, but they're great phones, and they're more likely to be available at deep discounts than the phones you've been looking at.
The Mi A2 comes with stock android, and an unlockable boot loader. I picked up one last month, and installed a custom ROM on it within an hour of taking delivery. The only thing it lacks is an SD card slot.

I personally impressed by Mi A2 when taking in hand. thin, light weight, steel body. But lack of super notch view leaves me a dot. The plus is Android One so getting updates.

Poco F1 indeed a power house ... wow 845 chipset and 630 GPU with 2.8 clocking speed!.. amazing but out of syllabus as its haunting around 18k... if its touch near 15k, I would be first to steal it !..

RN7 pro 4x64 with 645 CPU and 48MP camera at 14k (As per logistopatch post above), then I zeroed down there for sure with expecting some more few bucks down by replacing wify's old LG Q6 or daughter's RN 3.

Edit : Real Me: feel like carrying unknown host ! ...Lol.... particularly when being asked by some one !

Dude, I forgot to revive that I am music lovers. Hope RN7 Pro sound quality is decent.

Nice choice finally. You won't be disappointed at all as I myself a music lover who doesn't like those often tweaks and jugaads and someone who prefer bliss music without much tuning is impressed with Rn7 Pro. You get all basics as with all phones and I feel the base music player does a decent job and the earphones choices and tweaks work wonders even on 3rd party earphones or headphones.
Rest you can always opt for other music apps.

What about ads that pop up on Xiaomi phones? Does one have to disable ads for every app in the settings? This is one reason I've been shying away from this brand.

These can be easily disabled. You dont even have to root at all. Just have to take bit of pain to open xiaomi apps and disable the ads by disabling Recommendation option. Google around and you will find more. Another option I heard about is to set your region to any of those European countries and you then do not have to take more steps further.

Yes. The best way is to set the Region to UK and Reboot ur phone. All the ads will be gone! There's absolutely no need to root the phone.

Does the Google play store work normally for people who change regions? I switched my region to Japan and the play store was acting wonky and just closed down whenever i tried to browse it. Then changed it back to India and still it was acting all wonky. Had to reboot the phone to make it work properly.

Due to this issue I wont recommend changing region as it even screws your clock. You are only left playing with some utc pst etc thing to match to ist. As you cannot have IST configured for UK right as logically these wont match.
So best option is to disable ada manually and even if those apps get updated the setting remains untouched.

With sale and exchange offers on old mobile, you can have it in less than 15K mark. Like currently, on MI website there is a sale sort of where you get 3000 extra off on exchanging old phone. Check it out, as if you factor in that 3000 extra off with exchange, base variant is at 15K.

Yes, exchange value has been dropped considerably. Just found out, this phone has no Widewine L1 (only L3)
