I always opt for the older flagship or new midrange (like the A series samsungs).... Despite the fact i can afford new flagships.... I dont know i just tend to do it this way. I guess its the same with vehicles... Never buy the 1st gen models 🤔. I also never use a phone without a rugged case the minute i pop my sim and sd card in, out of the box (otterbox defender or unicorn beetle type or similar whenever possible) Naked smartphones are too thin to my liking 🤣. Just wondering what u think of the mid-top of the line noname china smartphones? Would you give them a chance? Which would you recommend if those are your budget? Even further, so called " rugged" smartphones?

Haven't watched yet. But no, especially when going much older. I swapped my S6 for an A40 and the S6 screen is wayyyy better on all aspects, and when the a40 broke and i switched back to the s6 as an in-between-phone, i noticed the s6 was also faster. Got an s20 now which is a big upgrade.

What about the sound quality? I expect to see it outperform on the old flagship easily.

you're forgetting one big point.... a 2 year old lithium battery is on it's last leg... you'll be charging the shit out of that phone to keep it going and who knows when it's going to swell or catch fire. usually people trade their phones into the retailer after about 2 years so the retailer sends it out to be refurbished... even in perfect condition they still pop it open and swap the battery. go buy yourself a 2 year old phone and then spend 100 bucks minimum to swap the battery.... yeah.... i like to buy flagship anyway, but if i was strapped for cash i would just get a mid-range

This is slightly misleading, the galaxy note 9 was release 9th august 2018 and the Galaxy a17 was release 17 jan 2020; so you are comparing phones only 1 year 5 months apart, not two years; this up loaded jul 2020, prices would have probably been significantly more different from the release date of the a71 by then.

U see my friend just got a Samsung A51 and for MYR1100 it doesn’t even have 1080 60fps recording. Like I wouldn’t expect 4K 60 but having no 1080 60 in 2021 is just dumbass. For the same price u can easily get an iPhone 8 with 256gb. Nowadays used flagship phones are more worth it than they used to When I was still in school I got an iPhone 4 for MYR250, while market price was around MYR320. It was 6 years old at that time and we all know that shit couldn’t run iOS 7 well. But I got an iPhone SE last year for MYR300 (which I no longer use. I currently daily an iPhone X) and that shit was blazing fast. Of course go to anyone and people would argue that new midrange phones are relatively faster than older flagships and a used flagship could run you into malfunctioning parts. My first used iPhone X had flash and gps issues. I got it replaced within its warranty period and im fine. I used to use an oppo F7 and I would say the overall experience was rather disastrous... u see within the first year, its charging cable and headphone cables got brittle and I had to dispose them both. Not only that. I don’t know is it a mid range oppo thing, but the headphones I got produced rather ear drum hurting audio than what I would say a decent day to day headphones. It’s as if oppo doesn’t see the importance of my ears. Ok never mind about that. My oppo was god damn it slow before I got android 9. It was ok on android 9 but when it came to android 10, my phone became completely unusable due to android 10 being resource intensive and my oppo became obsolete from that moment onwards. Charging was also slow and my battery drains out seriously after android 10. THlists is ok but try playing games with it. Yes it does use a lot of battery and for some instances my game throttles and that’s quite a bummer cuz My oppo isn’t even like idk, 5 years old? It is no wonder more people in my country at least are going for iPhones more than before due to the fact that iPhones won’t go outdated as quick as androids do. For me people who buy android phones are really rich because it seems as if they upgrade their devices every 2 to 3 years. That’s people who buy midrange phones. Such people are also immune to poor resale value cuz my oppo which I got it for MYR1,400 back then only fetches MYR300 this year. I get it is already 3 years old but I guess these phones, they already start to depreciate the moment they are being parked in the Oppo concept store. Seriously I wished I could see bad days coming because when my oppo was new it felt present proof but I never thought much of whether it would be future proof. Turns out that if apple used to purposely get people to buy their new devices by slowing older ones down, i would say midrange phones are probably preplanned for these obsolescences too. Such mockery in consumer world.

I just went from Iphone 6S to the A71... can't say I prefer the metallic frame, the fact is actually love how lightweight it feels. I believe some "features" are just focused on subjective stuff that sell but doesn't make it better, costly or premium? yes perhaps.

The reason why I buy mid range phones is that 1. I dont have to worry too much for it breaking 2. I dont draw too much attention 3. I dont really need it 4. I pay less and I get a new phone 5. If I loose it chances are a cheaper phone would more likely get turned into a lost and found than a current or older flagship phone

problem is these old flagship phones are still more expensive. Unless you are buying a used or "renewed" phone. I couldn't find a decent flagship from 2018 under 500 before tax. the note 9 I ordered, for 400, was good at first , but there were noticeable chips and marks on the outer edges nbd. However the amoled screen went out within a week of use. which is common for these older amoled phones that are used or "renewed". in all honesty for the price and performance, you are much safer going with a NEW mid range than an OLD flagship. This is coming from my personal experience, so maybe don't take it to seriously but consider it, at the very least

You gave a point for the unboxing experience and accessories to the older used ebay phone that probably wont come with half the accessories or even a box. Also it probably has a scratched up screen with a battery that wont hold a charge. And why was "warranty" not a catagory??? Do I detect a hint of bias???

Am I missing something? In all the pictures it always looked better for the flagship phones, less grainy and noisy. Sure in the Note9 vs A71 the dinamic range was better for the A71 but overall the picture was of higher quality in the Note9 with less ISO, in the Oppo picture I noticed exactly the oposite of what he said and the X2 Lite picture looked like it had a higher ISO (and noise) and the contras and saturation is too high.
