Nice filtering nRiTech. Getting many options. Thanks.
OnePlus 3, 128gb with blind eye! but where to find it ? I wish to buy straight way.
That phone is like 4 years old now though lmao. There will definitely be second hand ads on olx or perhaps you can ask around in some phone/repair stores. But wow, a few years back i thought 5.5 inch was also getting a bit too big, and now 6.5 inches are the standard in budget phones. Let's return to 5 inches pls :tearsofjoy:

It's so weird that we have to shell a bomb to get a phone which fits in our palms... (I am talking about iPhone mini).
Dunno if anything 5-5.5" exists for Android.

Since the redmi4 is long gone, the only compact option was the s10e, but at a price of almost 50k. Even that's not easily available these days i think.

oneplus 3 or 3T is my take, but not available anywhere. If any hints, do let me know friends.

On other hand, Here, my feelings gone to Moto Z2 force, but not sure. Any insight/user feedback ?

Samsung S10e, Google Pixel 4a are definitely two very good options.
Beyond the budget what OP mentioned, OP - why dont you look for refurb phones like Zuk2 or Pixel 2 or Pixel 3 - they will definitely be within the mentioned budget and might be available as refurb. if you were in Mumbai - try with SahiValue (if possible visit them - they do have nice phones and you will have to bargain hard to get the better offer), they also have website (but buying used/refurb phone without seeing it is risky)

I know. :) I was referring to the other comment - you don't have to go all the way up to an iPhone Mini.

The OnePlus 3 is not a small sized phone. Its the same size as a OnePlus 5t. Diagonally measured screen sizes can be misleading. With screens getting taller, the diagonal size increases a lot, but the phone size remains same.

So, considering OP 3 for a small phone is not a good idea.

Yep, my workaround to this has been to check the width and height of the phone.
I am good with anything around 67-71mm width, and 135-145mm height.
The height varies depending on the aspect ratio (18:9, 19:9, 21:9) and obviously the bezels too. The width is mostly the first thing I check though.
In the last five years, that's the Pixel 1/2/3, Samsung S8/S10e, Sony Z5 Compact. This is one of the "big" reasons I never picked up a OnePlus. :D

Have a oneplus 3 lying around as a backup. It is as big as my previous phone poco f1. I have actually compared this by keeping them one on top of the other. Poco had a bigger display on paper but the op3 has bigger bezels. If you are okay with the size of op3, can consider a poco as well. Same footprint. Op3 is much lighter though if that's what your care about
