My Nexus 5X is in sore need of being replaced, so I'm starting to look at phones. I'm not really interested in the S10 due to the locked bootlocker and the price for what you get. Other than that phone, keeping the budget below say $1,500 what is the best android phone right now? I'm not interested in parallel imported, so the Pixel 3 and OnePlus are out.
I've been looking at the pocophone f1, but haven't seen one in person. I see the LG V40 is coming out at the end of the week as well, but haven't seen a whole lot on them. Any suggestions as to what I should be looking at? I prefer having a headphone jack but it's not a must, camera quality of decent or better, and of course decent battery life.
I know this is a broadish question but I'm looking for what others are using currently and what they are liking. The phone won't be replaced ideally for 3 or more years. The Mate 20 also looks decent but I'm not sure how I feel about Huawei.
Thanks for any suggestions. Cheers.
