    Default Best New android phone around $1,000?

    New android phone around $1,000?

    So I currently have the oneplus two and it's old I hate buying new phones since I usually break them or lose them but this one lasted me years.

    Looking to buy something "new" around $1,000

    Don't want to send $1600+ for the new Oneplus 8 pro I just find it pretty pointless to spend money on the "newest" thing.

    I'm thinking about a

    OnePlus 7 Plus
    Google Pixel 3 XL

    I've purchased a Oneplus 8 on amazon but it had no warranty (Wrong model given) and returned it
    and purchased a Google Pixel 3 XL but they sent the google Pixel 3a XL instead

    Any suggestions/recommendations?

    Not looking for a contract and want to pay it outright (I travel to much for contracts.
    Not looking at ANY apple phones. I hate the software.
    Phone doesn't need to have 5G I don't think it's going to be needed in the next 3 years anyways.


    I don't need anything "great" just want it to have at least 64gb of ram and a faster processor
    Good camera is a plus

    Mostly for some games and applications that run on it.

    I'm willing to spend more if I have to but it seems there is a lot of phones around $1,000 I just don't know what the best choice is.

    I just don't know anything about phones.

    Edit: Also where is the best place locally to buy them or online?

    I'm also in no real rush I can wait for some sale in the future. I was hoping amazon prime days would happen but it seems to be happening in September/October now instead.

    Note 20 is coming out in about 2 weeks. You may be able to get a Note 10 on sale.

    Costco.ca has the s20 for $1218 and Note 10+ for $1450.

    I'm also looking, and I landed on the S10 lite. I like the looks of it because it has good specs and doesn't have the curved edges like the S10+. I had that on an S7 and hated it. Going to see if it goes on sale next month, apparently they often do just before school starts.

    If your willing to chance and really want a OP8, buy from Aliexpress. But warranty is out the window.

    I purchased my OP7 China model with 12GB ram from Aliexpress. Never had any issues needing warranty so that was a gamble I took to save monies

    The benefit of masks is not known at this time. But we do know it is some non-trivial amount more than zero.

    We also know that the cost of mask use is, essentially, zero.

    So the cost:benefit of mask use is approaching infinity. I'll take that every time. And every time I see someone without a mask, I think they are stupid.

    Wait for back to school and keep eye on RFD.

    Samsung Unpack happens on Aug 5th. There may be deals on older models before and after that date.

    Watch for heavily discounted phones that you can directly buy from Samsung. I got my 512GB S10 for like $599 last May after stacking discounts and trade in credit. Not bad for a 3 month old phone back then.

    When does pixel 4a come out? Seems like a great option.

    Public Mobile is the best, just like Phil Collins haggard face.

    Although I appreciate your kind gesture of getting me one, I would prefer if you just bought a single Pixel 4 instead to resolve your thermostat issues.

    The Google 4a specs seem a lot worse then the 3 XL, im just not even going to consider it.

    Seems I need to pick one of the following

    Galaxy S10+

    Or

    Galaxy S10


    $899.99 - Samsung Galaxy S10 (5G) 256GB / 8GB RAM SM-G977B Single-SIM Factory Unlocked Android Smartphone - International Version (Crown Silver)

    $889.99 - Samsung Galaxy S10+ Plus 128GB+8GB RAM SM-G975 6.4" Dual Sim LTE Factory Unlocked Smartphone (International Model) (White)




    I'd prob grab the google Pixel 3 XL but it doesnt seem to be sold anywhere, they stopped producing it for whatever reason...

    Where is the best place to buy a phone? Costco? I'm tired of amazon the last 2 i purchased were not the models advertised and still waiting for refunds 2 weeks+ later and just reading reviews every single phone seems to be incorrect models from what is advertised...

    Announced Note 20 and 20 Ultra.

    Nothing ground breaking on the S10 and S10+ on pricing front.

    They don't make the 3XL anymore because the 4XL has been out for almost a year and the 5 is getting announced in ~2 months

    Unless you need waterproofing, maybe reconsider the 4a. It's a really excellent phone and will be available in a 5G variant soon if that's important to you. Same camera hardware as the flagships. It has double the base storage of the 3XL and 50% more RAM. It will also get Google's immediate OS/security updates for a longer period of time. It won't feel as premium, but it does have a headphone jack.

    Yah i understand that but the 3XL specs were all better then the 4a which is a shame.

    I'm not at all interested at 5G since It will just be additional money added to the price tag.

    I mean I might of just created a bias because of how i ordered a 3 XL and they gave me a 3a XL and were hoping i don't realize, it wasn't amazon but some third party seller.

    I'd be willing to consider it i guess, i'll pick something up on the next sale if its on sale and an S10 isn't I'll grab that instead.

    They aren't all better though See above - the 4a has double the base storage and 50% more RAM, and that RAM increase is probably more important than a slightly faster CPU for user experience.

    Processor wise, the 845 in the 3XL is a bit faster than the 730G in the 4a, but both phones have zero lag anywhere, so I doubt you would really notice a difference in real-world use unless you use some very processor heavy apps or run a benchmark, then obviously you want as much power as possible. The 4a should have significantly better battery life as well with a much newer CPU built on 8nm and 1080P display.

    The 3XL is a great phone too, but being almost 2 years old now I would lean towards the 4a if it were me. With the 4a, you gain a headphone jack but you lose waterproofing and wireless charging.

    The S10/S20 are great phones as well but what bothers me about Samsung is having to wait for OS updates, and how they have their own proprietary app for everything - it takes a bit of effort to strip those out and change default apps to Google or whatever your preference is but not a huge deal I guess.
