New Android Under $500?

My Pixel 3 is starting to show it's age from abuse over the past year and a half. Was looking at alternatives. The 3A is no longer being sold, not sure when(if) the 4A is coming around and at what cost. I saw the LG G8X (single screen) for $520 but not sure if this is a decent phone for the price or if there are better alternatives out there?

LG G8X for $520 is a good price for a SD855 phone. There is no other major brand phone with SD855 at that price.

If you are ok with ordering online, B&H Photo has some good phones at under $500. Don't worry about that it's a US store. If you let them clear customs (means paying the GST and PST) for you, then it is as good as receiving a parcel from a Canadian store. No held ups/customs charges.

What is your most important feature?
1. Cameras? Wait for the pixel 4A
2. Processor? Then the LG8X is your best bet.
3. Price and time isn't a factor? Order a Redmi note pro and ship via DHL.
That's the beauty of android, diversity.

But seriously I would wait for Google to announce their lineup for the year. See what the prices look like before buying anything right now
