    lol.. These are budget Androids? (Galaxy S20 FE vs Pixel 5 vs Pixel 4a)

    https://lifehacker.com/which-budget-...-fe-1845252257

    Samsung Galaxy S20 FE: $700
    Google Pixel 4a 5G: $500
    Google Pixel 5: $700

    these are budget??? What are they smoking?

    my idea of budget Android is $50.
    Waiting for Android 9 and 3gigs ram for that price (PLEASE!).
    also, work with Mint mobile and FreedomPop

    Some websites classify the Galaxy s20 FE as midrange. I think $700 is still too much for a midrange phone.

    I agree those phones are definitely not budget.

    and where to buy it?
    prices are nuts on ebay for a working unlocked G6.
    most of those used phones says not working or cracked screen when you click on it and costs $60+!

    If you don't mind Chinese brands, I've gotten a couple and have been satisfied with them. Umidigi has some phones with good specs and fair prices. I got my girlfriend the Umidigi A7 Pro off Ebay for $120 for her birthday, and she loves it. She's coming from one of those $30 LG models, so almost anything will be an upgrade from that.

    but there's no buy button?


    also, quad cameras?
    does it have optical zoom?

    Lol! Optical zoom? At this price range, expect the camera to merely adequate or surprisingly decent. It would probably be okay for most non pro digital photographers.

    The F2 was $170 last night on eBay.

    The S3_Pro that I have is currently $149. It's almost too much phone for most people. 6 gb r,am 5150 mah battery, 128gb storage, Dual sim and yes, it works on Verizon. Only thing it's missing was bands 66/71(not that I use them).

    Check often, the price goes up and down as supplies fluctuate.

    Are these Umidigi phones capable of VOLTE on both AT&T and Tmobile? Or do they just use band 2 and 4 HSPA for voice calls?

    Do any of those get updates? Security only, or full versions? I've looked at them in the past, but don't remember if I ever found that info.

    Hahaha. That's wishful thinking. If its not Oppo, Xiaomi, Huawei, Oneplus they cannot be bothered to waste their time on updates. They don't even care if your phone is defective. If it's defective, the seller tells you to send it back to Shenzhen. After they receive it, they don't even bother to refund you. Then you have to dispute it with eBay. What a major headache.

    Those are not "budget" androids. Those are upper mid-range devices.

    Remember when top of the lines phones were $500 or less?
