Which phone do I get?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hey, I'm looking get a new phone, I've got about $300 aud. I need a phone with a decent video camera - I'm tossing up between the Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 and the Samsung Galaxy s7. Or is there a completely different phone I should be considering? Thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks

Neither. S8. The S7 is a very old phone by now.

 

Redmi's are made of plasitc, which is yucky.


Brands I wholeheartedly reccomend (though do have flawed products): Apple, Razer, Corsair, Asus, Gigabyte, bequiet!, Noctua, CoolerMaster, GSkill (RAM only)

I would honestly recommend saving up then. Neither phone is worth your money, imo.

the Samsung Galaxy s7

just basic phone functions? anything features in mind(games/ screen size etc)?

s7 is still a great option with lots of developers support , xda forum

 

lg g6 should be around same price, but with better audio

I really don't mind. I'm planning on using basic social media and that's it. The thing I want is a good video camera.
