    Hello,

    I'm planning to buy new smartphone for around from 200 to 350$. I would like to get some advice and help me decide better. Phone usage: music listening, a little gaming, photo taking, internet and video watching, so yeah, pretty much everything :)

    Here are the ones i was thinking about:

    1. ZTE Axon 7 $325.88 - 366.88
    2. LG G5 $209.87 - 305.68
    3. ASUS Zenfone 3 $262.02 - 274.95
    4. Moto z play $269.99 - 309.99
    5. Nubia Z11 $334.88 - 444.88
    6. Xiaomi Mi 5X $256.99 - 300.99
    7. Xiaomi Mi Max 2 $238.99 - 275.99

    If you want a flagship device I'd recommend the ZTE Axon 7. However the Honor 8 is a much more stable device.

    I don't care it's a flagship or not, better quality overall and specs is what i look at. Not sure Honor 8 is worth for only about 63$ less with way worse specs from what i see.

    Axon 7 4GB/64GB Snapdragon 820 for $317.88
    Honor 8 3GB/32GB Kirin 950 for $255.59

    I'd personally rather go with the Honor 8 as the Kirin 950 is much more stable than the SD820.

    I'd still go for the Honor 8 as it has flagship specs.

    ZTE Axon 7 is best choice to buy from the list you mention above.

    Ok then what you think about adding about 60$ from axon 7 and taking Xiaomi Mi Note 2? I know it goes a bit over the budget but it's fine.

    The advantage you'll get with the Mi Note 2 apart from specs and battery life is constant updates for the useful life of the phone. Just make sure you get one with the global rom like in the link above. But also ensure it's the global model (not chinese) if you want worldwide lte bands.
