Idk if this is the right site to ask, correct me if im wrong :)

I'm about to change my iPhone 5S to some android based phone. My budget is about 150$. I'm from Belarus, so that might affect what phones are available for me. I'm looking at a Redmi Note 7 for around $130 dollars. I was wondering if there are better phones out there that would work for what I need. I am okay with getting a used phone also.

The phone should be <=6.2", with fingerprint sensor ofc, and a good battery life

The phone needs to be comfortable for me to use, 4G capabilities (Don't want to downgrade in download/upload speeds)

  • You should provide us with as many requirements as you can think of, otherwise your question may be hard to answer because it may be too broad. So far you have just told us a price and OS.

I would get a Redmi Note 7 or an iPhone 8 or higher. Just be aware that the iPhone X and 11 series substitutes the fingerprint for an facial scanner which I love on my iPhone Xr. It unlocks my phone almost immediately.


Redmi A3
