Yea I would but instead because the original note 5 makes no sense.

Xiaomi probably realized from previous sales that some people like to save money surprisingly. I myself would spend a little more for the pro though

Hi,
I have to buy phone to my company. I've selected two:
- Huawei Mate 10 Lite
- Sony Xperia XA2
It can't be anything else. It has to be phone available in operator.
Advantages Mate 10 Lite:
- 4/64GB
- 18:9
Advantages Sony XA2:
- NFC
- USB-C
- Battery life
- Clean Android
- Snap 630 with QC
I'm wondering is 3GB RAM will be enough for upcoming 2 years?

As of now and with snapdragon 630 it i'll be enough for day to day tasks, web surfing can't say about gaming i doubt.

But trick that Xiaomi knows that 5 is in 10 12k range whereas its first redmi reached 17k, when I bought max prime at this price, in India redmi note 5 still be hit because of its price, however competition offers better specs, consider honor 9 lite, i thinks Xiaomi will drop the price to 8 k.

I am trying to upgrade from an LG G3 to something newer(used). Looking to find something like my G3.

Budget: $180usd
+5.x inch screen
3GB Ram or more
32 GB+ Internal
SD card slot
Unlocked/Unlockable Boot Loader
Os: Oreo Lineage based roms

Need suggestions as fast as possible. My phone is on its last leg so I need to order it ASAP. Probably buy from Swappa as usual.

Be careful with Swappa. Many have been scammed as of late. Ever since they allowed companies to use their site.

Thanks for the heads up. Any suggestions on a device or a better retailer then Swappa?

YOu run a risk on every site like that. I personally only buy devices from people I know or when I get it brand new. As for a device. I perfer Nexus or One plus devices. Mind you I mean Nexus and not pixel devices.

Thanks but didn't the entire nexus line sacrifice an SD card slot?
