I have an LG G8x with the Snapdragon 855 which is hard to beat especially as it's a flagship phone with a midrange price. Glad I went with the 4G 855 for less money than all the Snapdragon 750G phones I have seen. The LG G8x going for three hundred US at local Costco unlocked brand new, pretty good deal for a late 2019 flagship with the Snapdragon 855. The new Galaxy A52 5G has some nice features with the Snapdragon 750G in it, however it will be pricier and slower for my use.
