Looking for a phone

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hey- I'm looking to buy a new phone under 300 USD, but I may be able to stretch the 400. Is there a decent phone to buy? Should I wait? But used? Buy apple? Android? 


 

When I ask for more specs, don't expect me to know the answer!

i wouldnt buy used if youre planning to use a sim card, cuz if its imei reports as stolen any telecom company would refuse to provide service. im currently using the lg k9. it was 120 cad i believe when i got it 2 years ago. it isnt great but for the price its amazing. the samsung a series looks really promising, roughly 250-350 usd i believe. the pixel 3a non xl is about 400 usd roughly, and is a pretty good phone. ltt reviewed a while ago. hope this helps


Either tag or quote me when responding to me. I won't see otherwise

Sorry if I don't respond right away. I could be sleeping, helping someone else, or away from my computer or phone

put a reaction on my post if i helped

Have a good day

Best phone for the money if you don't want to grab something from China is the Z3 Play from the Motorola store. $229 and it comes with the battery mod.

Gorgeous display, unparalleled battery life.

If you're going apple you'd be looking at an iPhone X that's 3 gens old now. The XR used is a bit over 400 still I think.

I would suggest the Xiaomi Redmi K30 priced around 260-300, maybe up to $350 depending on region. It has a 120Hz IPS display, 6gb of ram, great cameras for the price, 27w fast charging and 4500mAh battery. Also the Mi 9 Lite should be around the same price range.

What are you looking to use the phone for? What kind of specs are most important? Does size matter (giggity)? What have you used in the past that you liked?

Just like shopping for a new home, a car, or looking for a partner, would you blindly rely on advice and recommendation from someone else?

 

Who's the one using the product? Whose needs and wants are you trying to satisfy from this expenditure?


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.

The 10e is like $180 though. Again, Xiaomi Redmi note 8, or note 8 pro, But the k30 is really great.

@YT_DomDaBomb20 dont spam. Try to organize the listings better in one reply because the links are too long.

@YT_DomDaBomb20 The G6(great phone btw)  from newegg is sold by a nonreputable seller with only 4 reviews. 

You can find a lot of phones at the price of yhe a50 with the same processor.

The v35 seems like a great phone for the price.

And lastly, that s8+ in used. OP wanted new.
