    May 2020 and still using the nexus 6. It's been an amazing phone and still runs fantastic.

    I have recently noticed though, that occasionally the phone switches off when I try to use the camera and the battery is around 50%.

    I've had it pretty much since launch so it's services me well.

    This time around I'm looking for a budget android phone.

    Can anyone recommend a good phone in the budget range?

    Welcome to Android Central! You've come to the right place - we are all about phones and love upgrading conversations!

    Wow! The Nexus 6! That was an AMAZING device! I had the Nexus 5 and loved it.

    Since you really liked your Nexus 6, you could definitely get your hands on a Google Pixel 3a for less money. It's an awesome mid-range equivalent to the Google Pixel 3.

    The 3a still has an awesome camera and a very similar performance to its big brother. I was actually going to buy it last year. It's close to stock Android and it may give you a similar experience to your Nexus 6 - just with a few more bells and whistles.

    Let us know what you decide!

    Welcome to Android Central! I agree, the Pixel 3a or 3a XL would seem like the logical choice (or wait a little longer to see what the 4a is like).

    I went with the Motorola one macro.

    It's on the lower end of the price.

    I'm very happy with it. It feels like a big upgrade after having a 6 year old phone.

    I will be keeping an eye on the new pixel phones that are released later this year though!

    I'll echo the P3a or P3aXL. If you decide to wait a bit, there will be amazing deals on the P3a line when the P4a is launched, or you might consider a P4a, given the rumored pricing. You won't go wrong with either.

    Since you have the Nexus 6 and obviously love it, the way to go would absolutely be the Pixel 3aXL. That is exactly what I'm doing for my mother, who also has a Google Nexus 6 with 64gb.

    +1 for the 3a XL. Excellent mid-ranger and you can find very good deals now.
