      Since I love compact size smartphones, Galaxy s10e is my favorite under $500 (I bought it at new at $440 in July). And recently I was choosing a present for my son and picked up Xiaomi Mi 9t Pro. 128 gb version cost me $325

    Because the pixel 4 was so underwhelming, I really hope google makes a 4a without the radar crap (hopefully keeping face ID though.), without the 90hz, and with a bigger battery and even baseline water resistance. That’d be fantastic.

    I would love a samsung phone, I’m just not buying a phone with a junk ass curved display.

          for those who critizise the design of the zenphone 6, it's a GAMING phone don't expect that overpriced apple's or samsung's design. If u don't like it pay more and that's all, if don't have money to buy a expensive one, shut up.

                          Major battery consumption there with razor z, unless you can lower refresh rate & resolution in settings.

                            If Samsung are slow to update their phones, wouldn't that just make people buy another one? Noooo, I hear you say. Surely a fine 'ethical' company like Samsung wouldn't do stuff like that?

                              Performance absolutely isn't an issue with the 3a XL. After Android 10 it got even better. And battery life is incredible. I was able to pick one up in mint condition for $250, at that price there is nothing better. And I came from a S10+ I broke.

                                      In order to avoid the price problem with things like the Razer phone, reviewers should say which price they would recommend it at.

                                            How can anyone recommend old android phones? Android phones can upgrade their OSes for only 2 years since the release of the phone. That's a big dealbreaker.

                                              I just added 50 more dollars and bought the ROG 2 instead of the Zenfone 6. That's what I just watched this video on
