    Looking for a new phone

    So my trusty iPhone 5s is showing it's age. It can't get through a day on a full charge, it's laggy, the home button doesn't work and it heats up. Currently I'm looking at the Huawei P20 Pro, OnePlus 6 and Honor 10 is there anything else I should be looking at and what should I get?

    Re: Looking for a new phone

    If you don't mind an import consider the Xiaomi phones?

    Edit!

    The Mi A1 and Mi A2 are definitely worth a look. Both are Android One.Also the Pocophone F1 when it eventually gets an international version.

    Have you considered an iPhone 7? As you've already got an iPhone 5s, you might find it a bit easier to just get a new iPhone. Especially with iOS 12 - it's improved system speed massively by all accounts

    The new Nokia phones seem rather decent.

    OnePlus 6. The os runs smoothly and only drawback is the battery life. P20 is a great for taking photos. The rest is awful.
