    Hey! My Nexus 5 just died and i m searching for a new android phone.Can i really trust chinese manifacturers such as xiaomi?Is the build quality of note 3 pro any good? Or should i just get a flagship phone like the lg g4 instead? I had many problems with my nexus 5 like battery issues,poor camera and focus,sim dc,lag and more. I had to use my warranty cause the phone died again like a year ago.. I guess i must have gotten a faulty model or the build quality wasnt good to begin with.I m interested in high specs for some games but mainly for app usage,internet browsing and stuff with no lag.Also a good battery is a must. What should i buy?!

    Welcome to the forums. What carrier do you have? Do you have a budget for a device?

    Ok. There are a lot of good devices out there that are inexpensive. The ASUS zenfone 2 should be really inexpensive. The Honor 5X, might be another good one. I have the Nexus 5X. Still made by LG, but I think that was a much better device overall; that might be in your price range now...the prices for that are starting to drop a little.

    I m afraid a bit to get another nexus since i wasnt really satisfied with my nexus 5(it only made it for 2 years in comparison to my friend's lg g which is 4year old and its still going strong). Plus its around 255 ,and the g4 is around 290 . I dont like the design of the zenforce 2 appealing ,however i will have to check the honor 5x as well.

    I just checked a video in which honor 5x is quite slow in app transitions some times :/ .

    I used the honor 5x and it did have a lot of random slowness. The amazon moto g4 is $125 for prime members. Quite a well performing phone in its price range,and doesn't have the random slowness of the honor 5x

    Well, the Honor might not be the most fleet of foot (the SD615/7 will never win speed tests), but EMUI is a pretty heavy OS and the interface takes some getting used to. But it's also loaded with a TON of software features that you normally don't see in a sub 200 phone... They basically threw in the same software doodads you'd see in a Mate 8 or P9.

    Now, I have both 5X's... And the Nexus is clearly the better phone, but it brings with it a higher price that you might not be willing/able to pay.

    But even with its quirks, I kind of like the Honor still... nice phone.
