Looking for a new phone

Hi all,
I am looking for a new mobile. I currently have Samsugn Galaxy S8+.
I really dont want to pay anything more then $500 CAD to purchase a phone.

My options seems to be
A7
Xiaomi Note 8 or Note 9
LG G8X
Note 10 Lite

any other budget phone out there that is good?

Save your money by keeping the S8.

You can always play around by changing your launcher so it looks and feels new.

best time to get a new phone would be Black Friday/Christmas time.
phones/plans go on sale AND you get reward points/credit cards and stuff like that.

I know it's still a few months away but if you're like me and looking for the best deals then we gotta wait till then :(

Don't know about the camera, but the LG G8x for $500 at Costco seems like a pretty good deal. Most specs are high end.
