Not to resurrect an old thread, but you can get an original Google Pixel (unlocked bootloader) in good condition for less than $200 on

Pixel is still an excellent phone, still gets the best updates first, and will do 90% of what all the new flashy phones will do. Still has one of the best camera's in the business.

Safer than buying a phone from a chinese company... if not for that I'd look seriously at Xiaomi phone.

OnePlusT is an excellent choice - just the Pixel 1 is 99% as good and $300 cheaper.

Spiritual successor to the Nexus line.

- Local just pre-ordered his Pixel 3.

(Pixel) HTC is from Taiwan - not Chinese? iPhone's are Chinese too Good info though, $200 is a steal.
On February 20, 2018, President Trump issued a memorandum instructing the Attorney General “to dedicate all available resources to… propose for notice and comment a rule banning all devices that turn legal weapons into machineguns.”

“I like taking the guns early, like in this crazy man’s case that just took place in Florida ... to go to court would have taken a long time”

“Take the guns first, go through due process second”

"Or, Mike, take the firearms first, and then go to court"

There's a Oneplus 6T incoming for worldwide distribution.
More of an evolution than revolution but the pricing still looks decent.
