For $150 it's a half decent phone to do daily tasks. But if you're looking for a decent camera, look elsewhere. See the reviews, photo quality, video stabilization, and low light are all under performing and look to be equivalent to maybe a 2015 flagship phone.

Plus, a few annoyances are micro USB and lcd screen.

100%. If you're working with that budget, buy used.

I don't understand this trend of buying these Garbage phones for supposedly their low price.

It seems dodgee
Is this thing on?

You don't understand that a brand new large-capacity battery is the most important part of a phone? The OEM battery replacement for any of these used phones, where they vacuum seal it after to keep the IP rating, costs $300-400. So, yes, it does make sense to buy newer phones. Back when phones had user-replaceable batteries (read: Samsung Galaxy Note 4), I would agree with you. Those times are long gone, as the industry introduced more planned obsolescence.

If you insist on a new budget phone have a look at the Umidigi A9 Pro in the $200 price range, the battery is slightly smaller (rated at 4150mah). I picked one up a couple weeks back with a $40 coupon on Amazon.ca

Same P60 processor with 6GB RAM + 128 GB ROM, dual sim dual standby, an expandable storage slot, all Canadian 4G bands, and USB-C charge port..and looks oddly similar to this device on the back. There's also a smart key similar to the Samsung bixby button that can be set as a shortcut to functions and apps...oh, and it has a gimmicky infrared thermometer for checking if your friends have a fever. The cameras are garbage, but overall it feels solid and is a nearly stock android phone. Also ran Malware bytes and came out clean...

Great phone for an elderly parent...and when Covid's under control the extra SIM slot can come in handy for travelling.

upvote for alternative phones. I have the P60 chip in my Ulefone Armor 6E. It's a snappy chip.

MediaTek based phones like this one work on Freedom, other brands of CPU/platform is hit or miss with freedom mobile.
