Too Long; Didn't Read
An IIT senior at IIT Bombay writes about how to find the phone that suits your personality. Here is a rough road-map that I have followed to help you in your search too. For me, that phone turned out to be Google Pixel 4a. Good luck with your search, as I bought OnePlus Nord instead, as it wasn't available in my area. I bought the phone as it was a good display, average specs, okay camera, average battery, excellent hardware, excellent software.
