Unlocked phone under 500$

I am looking for a unlocked phone for my wife under 500$. Below are the phones I shortlisted.

Asus ROG phone $489 Microsoft store
Samsung a70 $490 best buy
Moto one action $ 309 Costco.

Which one will be better or is there any other options. Should I wait for boxing day for some deals

A70 is an amazing phone.

It's cheaper via Amazon

Excellent battery, huge screen., Good camera

It's missing multiple speakers, but unless u watch movies on phone, 1 is more than enough

Samsung A70 at staples, use $75 off $500 coupon (you will need to add a filler item to make it over $500). Good solid phone for $425.

How about pixel 3a if it price goes down to 400$ as black Friday. Is it better than A70 425$ on staples

Hard to say, the phone is not old enough to know if it will be an issue, and it would also depend on what period of time we are talking about (1yr, 2yr, etc).
The A70 has a much bigger battery but also a much bigger screen. Physically, they are not that close to each other so that is a factor.
Many differences between them, you would have to determine what matters to you.
