This will basically depend on your needs, what you are looking for in a phone, and what features are the most important for you to have. According to reviews and studies, the OnePlus 6 is one of the top rated phones on the market today. If you are looking for a good reliable cell phone in your price range this phone is an excellent choice. I believe this phone place 5th or 6th on the list of the top 20 cell phone on the market today. As you know the first place winner was a toss up between the iPhone X and the Samsung Galaxy 9S Plus. In some studies and surveys people choose the iPhone first and in other studies, it was the Samsung Galaxy. However, everyone seemed to agree about the OnePlus 6 and it rated rather high on the list. If I couldn't afford one the very best phone I'd settle for the OnePlus 6 because of the features and the design of the phone. It is an excellent phone for your money.
