Best android phone for 500 USD or less?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I'm looking to get a new android smartphone before college starts and I think this is about the max amount of money my parents are willing to pay. I've been leaning towards the Galaxy S9+ or A70 (I have pretty large hands) but I am open to any other suggestions, what should I ask for?

Definitely not something with only 4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage that cannot be expanded, and pathetic 3000mAh battery. Pixel 3a/XL I'm looking at you, you absolute travesty of a phone

 

Consider these if they are under $500 for you:

  • Galaxy S9+
  • NOT the S9 without the +
  • Asus Zenfone 6
  • Razer phone 2
  • Oneplus 6T
  • Xiaomi K20 Pro or Mi 9T Pro

Awareness is key. Never enough, even in the face of futility. Speak the truth as if you may never get to say it again. This world is full of ugly. Change it they say. The only way is to reveal the ugly. To change the truth you must first acknowledge it. Never pretend it isn't there. Never bend the knee.

 

Please quote my post in your reply, so that I will be notified and can respond to it. Thanks.
