>>12262 Motorola, Asus, Micromax are the only phone vendors I know that ship with non bloated android. You can always buy a redmi, root it and install a custom ROM. An even better option would be to go on olx and buy a second hand redmi and install custom ROM on it. I'm using a note 4 for the last 4 years and it works better than my sister's 1 year old phone just because of the OS. But I don't trust using any banking apps and other money related apps on it since you have to go through a few hoops and it will be less secure than an unroofed phone. Accessing account through browser works but it takes more time ofcourse.

>>12276 Yeah Nokia too, forgot about it. There are probably more brands that use it but just don't advertise it as such. I'd personally go the redmi route but that's just what I'm quite familiar with and I'm fine with using banking through the site. Your mileage may vary.
