Gonna buy it from aliexpress. free shipping to India using Singapore Post(reaches in 15 to 20 days as opposed to China post which takes a minimum of 25 to 27 days. only thing is, no COD(Cash on Delivery). they need a debit card. Get a Kotak Mahnidra (jify)account, and you get a free platinum chip debit card, and it works on all sites. The Jify account has no minimum balance.

How much does it cost in full? Paid to Aliexpress + customs + Any extra bank charges? Better than OP3?
