    Hi all been a Motorola moto x user since day one, but lately I find my moto x pure, a bit too big for my hand and pocket. Looking for a new phone, droped the list to three phone and not sure wich one to get.

    -Google pixel

    Pro: perfect size
    Stock Android
    Fast update

    Con: price. But it's a flagship phone and will probably keep it's value

    -LG G5

    Pro: well made

    Con: almost the same size as my Moto x Pure

    -Motorola Moto G5

    Pro: cheaper
    Read good reviews about it
    Loved the size
    Near stock Android

    Con: is sure not a flagship phone and will be outdated in two years, but am questioning myself about the necessity of spending 300$ on a phone.

    If you've got other candidates feel free to tell me about them. Took a quick look at the Sony Xperia XA1 but not sure about sony and I don't really love the Samsung.

    Have you checked out the G6? It feels much more manageable in hand than the Moto X Pure. There's also been some great deals on the G6, not to mention the phone is awesome lol

    Hello! I would say it would be a tossup between the Moto and G5. Both will be at great values now! Let us know what you decide!

    One Plus is releasing its flagship phone that is OnePlus 5 in next months and it will be between 300$ to 350$ so it's worth waiting.

    Sometimes it's best to stick to the brand you know and love. All the software will be similar and you know the type of product you getting. Nothing wrong with getting the Moto G5. It's got 3GB ram with a 1080p display. ๐Ÿ˜ƒ That sounds pretty good to me.

    The $600+ devices you pay for 'new features' and the latest technology but slowly over time, all that tech makes its way into cheaper devices. Let us know if you get the Moto device. Maybe even post some photos? ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

    Is that something you will use everyday? ๐Ÿ˜ƒ it's definitely very popular with mobile payments. I personally don't use NFC for anything so its not a deal breaker for me.

    You could always increase the screen size from 5.0" to 5.2 with the Moto G5 Plus and that has NCF on some models. The .2" larger isn't a huge amount.

    I noticed you said you don't really feel like spending $500 on a phone and you don't really like Sony and Samsung and also you don't like big phablet sized phones.
    So this leaves you with a few options like
    Moto G5 - Good price, good specs, will get updates for one year.
    Don't worry about it getting outdated as long as it still does what you want it to, it doesn't matter.

    Huwaei Honor 8 Lite
    Same size as G5 due to smaller bezels , $300, better specs than G5, overall pretty good option. Has a fingerprint sensor, more ram and storage. Good deal.

    There's also a Moto G5s coming out with dual rear cameras and maybe better processor and fingerprint sensor as well for around $300 so you could wait for it.

    Personally i don't understand why you wouldn't consider Sony and Samsung.
    Galaxy S7 could be had brand new under $500 and that's a real flagship phone, small bezels, great specs, just an amazing deal really. Smaller even than the G5.

    Also Sony Xperia X Performance can be had new under $300 with great specs for the price. I mean you are getting snapdragon 820 chipset. That's fantastic value. Also its 5 inch screen.

    I would be so happy if such great deals were available in my country so you should really consider these great deals available to you.
