    Default Mid-range android cellphone - pixel 4a vs moto vs???

    My moto g7 play is bogging down. Upgrade is imminent. Thinking pixel 4a, but the various moto g8 plus, g8 power etc models seem worthy of consideration. Or what else? Want as close to stock android as possible. Under $500.

    Telus EPP has the S20 for free. But that means that you would have to upgrade from your 3G public mobile network that you are so fond of.

    Edit:. Promo off. Now S20 is $16 x 24 months +$120 bring it back option.

    It has occurred to me that I could get a phone through Telus. My monthly payment would go up a lot. Looks like it would go from $56.25 to $99.75 for the USA plan is need. Plus any device cost. Suppose if the device was $0, that's only an extra $500/yr....

    Don't you expense your phone bill anyways? It's $63 for 20gb on the EPP. $60 for 10gb. $85 for 10gb us-can plan.

    Nope. 10% disc. You could do the $60, 10gb plan and add us calling for $15. Then do the roam like home thing when you need to Delaware.

    It's actually 10gb at LTE then anything over is 3G.

    I'll look into it. In the meantime, anyone have thoughts about phones?

    This is my exact plan it’s great.

    And now that you are double meat subbing it with your plan. You can even get an iPhone.

    3G speed should be around 3 Mbps. I just got about 300 on my test. Bonus is that you don't have to wait 2 weeks to get your invoice.

    Sure did. I do have to admit that the speeds are inconsistent. 227 just now. Are you guys so skeptical of 2009 tech?

    IPhone SE has 5+ years of OS update if you go for the long haul. Android only gives you 3. It's cheaper per year.

    The 4a is very strong bang for buck. Of the phones listed, I'd go for that instantly because everything about the 4a is better tech, ie: better performing, faster etc.

    Its really frustrating that only the top tier phones get Qi charging.
    My S9 just died a watery death so looking at mid range phones the 4a and Samsung A51 look great but no Qi.
