Depends if you're willing to forgo some critieria.

-Off brands like Umidigi and Redmi are good bang for buck

-Consider used phones?

Double check your provider as well. I believe there are no Nokia phones compatible with Freedom Mobile (with a good connection for bands anyways)

Thank for your reply.
Used, nahh
Have both brands you mentioned, not a big fan.
Not with freedom.
Was asking for feedback in case I missed something.
Found some more at Canada computers; thinking Nokia still better?

In general Android One will be miles ahead of the Zenfone bloat. I've had a few Asus over the years and they bog down pretty quickly due to the built in apps.

I've also read a few reviews that Nokia quality is definitely not as bulletproof nowadays but I would bet it's still ahead of Asus (for phones anyways)
