        Major battery consumption there with razor z, unless you can lower refresh rate & resolution in settings.

          If Samsung are slow to update their phones, wouldn't that just make people buy another one? Noooo, I hear you say. Surely a fine 'ethical' company like Samsung wouldn't do stuff like that?

            Performance absolutely isn't an issue with the 3a XL. After Android 10 it got even better. And battery life is incredible. I was able to pick one up in mint condition for $250, at that price there is nothing better. And I came from a S10+ I broke.

                    In order to avoid the price problem with things like the Razer phone, reviewers should say which price they would recommend it at.

                          How can anyone recommend old android phones? Android phones can upgrade their OSes for only 2 years since the release of the phone. That's a big dealbreaker.

                                              Do a low-price tier phone review! I just got the Galaxy A10e, and I am blown away by how amazing it is. Upgraded from the Galaxy S5...

                                              Btw, completely fine with not having software updates.

If you can purchase for five hundred bucks it's an excellent price. It's the swiss army knife of all 5models your discussing. It does everything quite well. Especially the display. Great review to help people chose!

                                                                                Current phone HTC One M9 thinking of getting the top of the line 8GB RAM Zenfone 6, but also thinking of the OP7Pro because I can get it (8GB RAM) with T-Mobile for $360+tax love the beast battery and being a little different by supporting Asus, but OnePlus is pretty darn good and the Pixel 4 is coming around the corner. Should I wait or pull the trigger?
