Suggest an all-rounder. Camera, Screen (no notches) and ROM are my main criteria for choosing any phone. Next I would prefer a Snapdragon SOC.
I have shortlisted:
  1. Oneplus 8 Pro
  2. Motorola Edge Plus (getting an second hand, barely a week used for 55000)
  3. Asus ROG 3 (most reviewers say camera is GOOD!)
  4. Mi 10
  5. Oneplus 8
Please suggest.

Also, if any has an Amex card and can help me avail the offer on Amazon let me know. It will make my decision making process even more easier.

Your shortlist:
  1. Oneplus 8 Pro - amazing phone for a price, pick this over ROG 3 if you are not mobile gamer. Overall better in every dept.
  2. Motorola Edge Plus (getting an second hand, barely a week used for 55000) - still overpriced, you will get brand new sealed OP8Pro in this price range.
  3. Asus ROG 3 (most reviewers say camera is GOOD!) - pick this if you dont care about phablet size and not a flagship camera. Rest all specs are beast.
  4. Mi 10 - save money and go for OnePlus Nord + accessories
  5. Oneplus 8 - save money and go for Oneplus Nord + accessories

I dont understand why there is so much hate for Nord.
No hate but reviews clearly state its not at all worthy unless you want to fall for gimmick .
Its cam is average and 5g claim is crap as its 5g modem only offers as good as any 4g connectivity and nothing better. 5g Fluke!
While gaming phone does get very warm and the battery drains quickly.
Camera ultra-wide shots seem dull. Macro camera is literally crap and got focus issues.

So nothing real fancy investing unless you want latest thing and One+ brand.

Well, as your requirements are no notches and ROM. What's wrong with the K20Pro?
Hardware wise it's competitive and VFM device.
What I'm assuming is you don't like MIUI, well most enthusiast don't.
My suggestion would be to install custom ROM first. Something like pixel experience, Lineage OS. You might also find oxygen OS ROM for some devices for the oneplus experience.
Not only Custom ROM will remove all bloatware, you will feel that you have new device altogether. Some ROMs provide better battery life, some snappy experience, some a lot of customization.
So, pick your poison.
Give it a thought before investing your Vitamin M for upgrading.

Depending on what priority you give to regular security updates, you should consider an S10 lite. Oneplus is good at giving out updates for its flagship phone of the year , since that is what gets covered in all those tech reviews. Once the phone is an year older, the updates start to get heavily delayed. If you use Gmail and banking apps on your phone, security updates are important. Samsung and even realme adhere to monthly security updates at least for two years. Samsung provides quarterly security patches after that. Oneplus is better than Samsung at providing Android version upgrades, but is much worse at the more important security patch updates.
S10 lite has - a great display, very good camera, great battery, regular updates. For the price, it lacks - 90 hz high refresh rate display.

Forget mi10, unless you install a custom rom, miui sends all your data to their servers. If you are spending 40k-50k, privacy and security are the least you deserve.
