If you are looking for the best phones for 500 euros, pay attention to this list. They are the best we can find in the market, for very good reasons.
Your best alternative: OnePlus 6 / OnePlus 6T
2018 has been a great year for OnePlus, and its two flagships are proof of that. OnePlus has always stood out for offering the best possible performance, but this year they have made a substantial leap in aspects that the Chinese manufacturer was still resisting, such as the screen and the camera. In addition, it is already updated to Android 9 Pie, with an exclusive OnePlus gesture system and its Oxygen OS customization layer.
Although the OnePlus 6T is already on the market, the 6 is still a recommended purchase for 50 euros less. In this price difference, the OnePlus 6T has a much smaller notch, 128 GB instead of 64 and more battery. We believe that 6T is a better investment, but if you don't want to exceed 500 under any circumstances, 6 is fine.
Well, if you want a headphone jack, 6 does, and 6T doesn't.
