OK, so now my phone started randomly turning off at around 35% battery and generally acting weird, so I guess after nearly 3 years, it's time for my Moto Maxx to go away.
Thing is: I wouldn't want to downgrade, but I don't quite know how to compare the new devices with it, since I know I can't directly compare number of cores and MHz, with different processors having different features and capabilities.
Here are the specs of my current device

Samsung Galaxy S8 is not a viable options because it costs between 800 and 1200 Euros (non+ and + respectively).
HTC and Huawei are also out because not sold here.
No iPhone either.
Thanks in advance.:mrgreen:

To be honest, I like the idea of the iPhone X, but even if I could learn to live with the Apple ecosystem, the starting price of US$1800 makes it a bit of a "NOPE".

Yeah the price tag is a huge turn off, see if you can get the outgoing Pixel perhaps, prices should drop when the 2 comes out

I wanted a Pixel since they launched, but they're not available here. :|

Grey import?
Risky.
Devices that didn't get homologated on the local telecommunications agency will be blacklisted from the network starting in October, effectively making them a very expensive paperweight.
Yay for microcellphones that people carry to inside of prisons inside their butts.

3 of them
Xiaomi Redmi Note 4X?

EDIT: Or if you do not want the insane battery life and must have an 800 series proc, the Mi Note 2 (821) or the Mi 6 (835).

Would it perhaps be an idea to list the phones that are available and affordable? Much easier then for folk to chime in with pros and cons of each model?
