Why? Xiaomi make the best phones you cant buy. 

Subjectively, sure, but objectively the "best phone you can buy" doesn't exist anymore, and probably won't ever exist because manufacturers aren't going to go back to making user-upgradeable devices with removable batteries unless legally required to do so by law.

Desktop: i7-4790k Build - ALMOST COMPLETE Mobile: OnePlus 5T | Bell Unlimited National Calling & Texting + 10GB Data
Laptop: Dell XPS 15 9560 (the real 15" MacBook Pro that Apple didn't make) Tablet: HP Touchpad (Android) | ASUS ME302C
Camera: Canon SX280 + Rebel T1i (500D) | Sony HDR-AS50R | Panasonic DMC-TS20D Music: Spotify Premium (CIRCA '08)

For China phone I like , and are some of most popular in asain market . Just ensure you chose global rom and the phone has you band .  ( Mi mix has every band available and would be my go to)


Oppo f7

Xiaomi mi mix 2 ( 2s still bit expensive)

Vivo v9


The best value for me. Considering you like of bezeless would be 


Sharp aquos S2  


If it must be a big brand the eBay normally has referb Samsung s7edge for around that price .


( For the easily triggered . These are just my opinion . Other phones may be a equally or even better choice)
