Nice video! I would add the Moto Z Play just because of its battery life tho. 😊

I have the ZTE AXON 7. I have found this unit to be phenomenal, everything about it is cool. Processor is fast, able to multi function without any hiccups. Only I miss that my Note had was the ability to schedule text messages. This phone takes pics that rival my old Samsung. Don’t get me wrong I had planned on getting the new Note until it’s untimely demise due to the recall because of the unstable batts. Unless the big suppliers get their new phones released it’ll be extremely hard for me to part ways with the AXON.

I’d prefer the OnePlus 3T, but I think both the ZTE Axon 7 and OnePlus 3T are great phones that can rival a Galaxy S7.

I can definitely agree with the fact that both can. Rival the S7 or any other smartphone on the market. The only thing that could edge them out would be the water resistance of the individual units.

I totally agreed, with bonus headphone, it was the best deal in 2016 for $399 !!

Moto Z Play deserves a mention. I have it and it outdid the Axon 7 in battery life for me. I really like this device.

Sorry but they are even too expensive for budget smartphones for European standard.

I agree, I call this category “flagship killer” the best “budget” phone imo was the zte zmax pro. I got one for my daughter and it impresses me to this day.

The HTC is definitely the phone I favor the most because of the dual speakers on the front plus the processor. The look overall is gorgeous.

For me real budget price is 100-250€. I mean, 400 is also budget but it’s still kinda expensive

Even though it was released back in Feb. 2016 The Blu Vivo 5 could have made the list, 5.5in 1080p screen, 32gb of storage & 3gb of ram. All aluminum build & a 3,100 mAh battery for $200!…Awesome but earlier this year that I still have in my rotation.

even le eco got mentioned but not xiaomi?

It would have been much more fair to put the moto z play up instead of the moto g4 plus. The z play is top 3 easy.

It deserves a spot because it has a beautiful 5.5″ 1080p super amoled screen. A snap dragon 625 that performs like a flagship cpu because of how well optimized the phone is. A battery life that seriously is one of if not THE BEST of the year (partly due to 1080p instead of UHD and the 625 that sips compared to an 821) but still plays everything I have thrown at it smoothly.

 It has all the customization of moto maker like the g4 plus, only has moto mods on top of it. Fingerprint scanner. Front facing speaker. Clean android with useful gestures added. But seriously the battery life alone should earn it a spot… The ONLY thing it lacks is optical image stabilization.

$400 is not a budget phone it’s a mid range phone duh.
Bought myself a Moto Z Play for $350 / £290 direct from Motorola.
