Hehehe.....e be like say we plenty. But i have other options sha, like the Realme X2 Pro, LG V50 Thinq, OnePlus 7/7T Pro, Xiaomi Note 10 Pro, and of course the Samsung S10+. They all have their strengths and weaknesses
LG is so odd device these days, in my entire life I have only seen 1 person use an LG phone grin

I don't think any of those phones apart from S10+ is water resistant.
The Samsung S10+ is almost perfect na just the exynos wen day spoil show.

Exactly, That QHD screen is a vampire.
Memory options don't matter, 128gb is more than enough, 6gb ram is almost Overkill

The S10+ is fucken perfect, I just wish the battery were bigger.
One part of me wants to buy this phone but man needs to spoil himself small grin
Yea, the S10+ is balanced out. 4000mah no really bad sha. This is exactly where the Oppo Ren Ace has me by the balls. 90hz screen and SuperVOOC 2.0 charge capable of 0-100% in 35mins.

I currently use an LG G6 and that reason u mentioned is also part of why i bought it. The LG G6 is water resistant too with high IP rating, but hw many water i dey carry am enter?

And for the S10+, i plan buying from Ebay, US variants are a SD 855

I don't even bother checking those phones, I know they would always be around 200k
Most people would rather get a Samsung or an iPhone for such a price tbh

Pretty sure the S10+ has a 120hz refresh rate tho

The Oppo Reno Ace is about 160k from Aliexpress BRAND NEW. They don't have good market share in US, even if u find it on Ebay, it will be shipped from China or HK.

But the S10+ on the other hand, i do not intend buying it brand new, will be too cost, and it's Just HDR10+ the screen has, but the QHD screen is insanely beautiful, colours are so vibrant

Wouldn't that damage the battery at such a low temperature?
You know there's an oilly adhesive that makes it water resistant so freezing it might not be a good idea grin

I don't let it freeze over, just cold. Also, the LG G6 is MIL-STD-810G compliant, tougher than even the Samsungs

The A71 basically has a weaker screen protection(gorilla glass 3) than the redmi note 8 pro (gorilla glass) but the A71 has a better camera.
I'd still take the redmi over this if you're gamer because the Helio GT90 has a stronger GPU than the SD 720 and 730.

Go to gsmarena and read camera review of sammy a71; it struggles to focus or better still compare them from youtube source. Lastly, hold your ear very well, never you say that sammy a71 cam is better than that of rn8 pro

Calm down Bros
I'm a huge fan of both brands but A71 beats rn8 pro na
64 MP, f/1.8, 26mm (wide), 1/1.72", 0.8µm, PDAF
12 MP, f/2.2, 12mm (ultrawide)
5 MP, f/2.4, 25mm (macro), 1/5.0", 1.12µm
5 MP, f/2.2, (depth)

Same specs with the redmi but with higher MP but just allowed less light due to the small aperture.

That a big budget, you could get the mi 9t or mi 9 if you're into xiaomi.
If you're into Samsung then you get a Samsung s10e or UK used note 9.

3000 to 3300 grin ;Dit's a no no for me..


But LG phones chipset Are monsters, they will just put great chipset on a small phone for as low as 150$ but they should increase their battery size or use better software optimization like the pixel that 3500 mah can give u 7hours wink wink

I'm having #100k budget to buy a phone tomorrow or next, please which phone can you recommend for me to go cuz i'm an heavy user and i multitask a lot. I need a phone that can open up to 10 apps without closing itself when switching. At least a phone with 6gig ram, 4000mah battery above and must have Amoled screen. Thanks.

Ps- Don't bother to recommend a used phone to me cuz i wont buy them at all. I love it New. And also Infinix and tecno product are not welcome.

Trust me, Samsung is the only beast for you. if you are in lagos, you can get a brand new Samsung galaxy note 8 for around 100k.. I haven't actually ever used a Redmi device, so my advice might be one sided, but i am a heavy samsung fan. My previous phone was the galaxy not 8 actually, it was a beast before i got the galaxy note 10+. The screen quality is unmatched, The processor, The battery, and if you like fancy, Samsung is fancy. Heck i was contemplating btw the galaxy and iPhone back then, but now iphone 11 users literally can't stop looking at my phone. You budget can get you the galacy note 8. fast changing, good battery, an s pen, 8gb ram and damn beautiful. But the downside i would admit is that you should never let that phone fall undecided lipsrsealed . phones never fall from me so i can use one for a long time. But trust me, once it falls with its curved display, you should just start saving alot for a new screen (over 70k).

How would you describe the Note 10+

Its a beast. The best phone i have ever used. i got the 512gb version. it literally has no comparison. i think only the s20 ultra is better than it right now. just imagine what the Note 20ultra would be like.

The best way to describe it is to get a pro and con box with a list of things you want in a phone and you end up ticking all the pros and no cons. thats how good it is.
