    Default best value for money android phone in your opinion?

    I'm looking for a new Android smartphone, with a budget of about 250-350 euro, 300-400 dollars.
    I'm intrigued by the p10lite Huawei. I currently have a p8lite and it's memory is getting at full capacity with the apps updates..(apps that can't be installed on the SDcards). The regular P10 is a bit too expensive for my tastes.
    I am seeing a bunch of brands I've never heard off, I'm guessing lesser branches of more established brands..
    Otherwise... maybe a Samsung? Asus? I have no idea which model though..
    suggestions? which models are you using in the mid-level price-range that you would recommend or, alternatively, definitely don't recommend?
    My use is not too intense.. I don't really use it for gaming... no twitter, no snapchat (facebook I do use quite a bit).. I do have a bunch of DnD related apps on it, and all sorts of more practical, travel or work related apps... and the usual basic comunication apps, like whatsapp or skype or zoom, but I don't really rate myself as having heavy duty needs.

    I could really use some insights.. because when I check out individual models I get a bunch of "professional" reviews that often list pros and cons that wildly differ from one review to the next. I figure actual end users can offer a more on point opinion.
    And yes, I really am set on Android.

    thank you

    The OnePlus phones probably have the best absolute value per dollar, but I'd rather by from a brand with an established business presence in my country. If I wanted something flagship-like on par with them, I'd probably get a Pixel 2.

    Within your budget, I suppose the OnePlus 3 is best in absolute terms, if you can find one new. The OnePlus 5 is a bit over budget.

    The Moto G5 Plus looks like just the thing, compared to the phones you mentioned, though. It's within your budget, and I like the specs better than the P10 Lite.

    Since the money for this phone is basically coming to me for free up to the 350 Euro mark, I don't mind going a little over budget, but no more than up to 400 euro.
    Oneplus is somewhat badly distributed in Italy, except for online. I believe my little brother has/had one. I'll have to ask. I seem to remember the size of it being on the large side.
    Ideally I'd get something with 32 or 64 GB of memory.
    I'll be looking into the Lenovo you suggested.

    maybe the essential phone? it's a bit over your budget but it recently got a 200$ price drop.

    I had never heard of it... It's interesting, but only sold in the US, so useless to me, sadly.
