Best Budget Phone Available

Currently have an Asus Zenfone 3 which is a decent phone, but it looks like it is time to be replaced. I don't want to spend a ton of money, but for the right specs/price, open to spending more. Looking at max about $500

Currently I am with Virgin Mobile, but it needs to be able to handle any frequency in Canada. Although Freedom is unlikely in the immediate future, it's possible as well that I might go with them too. So I would like to get that frequency as well if possible

Doesn't make sense to pay full price for pixel 3a, when it's on sale every few weeks and a much better replacement is due in a couple of months.

There's also the OnePlus 8 Lite coming soon, and Galaxy A51/A71 (already released, but not in NA yet)

This isn't a great time to buy a phone imo, all the holiday sales just ended and new stuff coming shortly. Hold off if possible.

Don't get a Moto if you want android updates. They are worse than asus
