Premise that I'm not english, than sorry for the grammar error. I have to buy a new smartphone to replace my old Huawei mate 8, my budget is around 500 max 550 euro. The thing that I need on smartphone are : good display (must is amoled), decent battery life, if it's possible software upgrade during the life phone, not like Samsung that forgets about his 1 years old flagships . I don't need a good camera ( I have a reflex for that). I see many smarphone :
Mate 10 pro (512€) : I like the stereo speaker and the design, I don't like the low dpi display ( I want to use vr in pc, but is not a priority) and the assence of Jack
Galaxy s8 plus (510€): I like the display quality, the UI but I'm afraid of lag in long term usage and the possibility of involuntary click during daily usage.
One plus 6 (520€): I like that is brand new, great speed, I don't like that is too big and in 6 months will be released one plus 6s

Special guest the Samsung A8 2018 (320€): I like that I don't need to use all my money to buy it and it's a small device but I don't now, it's a middle range smarphone. Help guys.

The Mate 10 Pro is a good choice at a relatively low price. But yeah, if you want to listen to a lot of things then you need an audio jack or annoy all the people around you with the music they may or may not like.

The Samsung A8 2018 is good for its price, but the quality of pictures and videos are not as good as the other devices you mentioned.

I'd pick the Mate 10 Pro, because I usually have my phone on silent.
If you are looking for a bang for the buck or in other words best buy for your budget I would suggest Oneplus devices. It offers specs same as the well-known flagship phones but costs half the price. Even though they would release another version of Oneplus 6 which is the 6t, it's still worth the buy.
New / Used?

One of the benefits that you have when you make a computer yourself is the ability to buy used components. Unlike buying a second car, a mobile phone, a washing machine, when buying used components, the risk, basically, does not exist.
The washing machine has movable parts, habs, it consumes, it needs a regular service. The car is the same. The previous owner of the mobile may have thrown him, maybe it was falling, etc. ...
The computer components do not wear out, they do not fall in performance over time, and the chance to break down does not increase.

Practical example: You planned to allocate 90$ for a graphics card, new graphics cards at this price ranking are not so strong that your new games will work properly. Instead of a new, that can be weaker weaker, you can buy some of the stronger graphics cards past or pre-generate a generation that is still in warranty and go much better than if you bought a new one.

When buying used components, pay attention to the warranty period, i.e. when the component is purchased and for as many months as the warranty applies. If up to the expiration of the warranty you have one more year or more, you can buy this component without thinking. Personally, all the components I've got are used (processor, cooler, memory, graphics card).
The only component I would never buy used is a hard drive.

I have experience on buying a used PC and lasted for 4 years. However, I can't say it's a good decision as I spent a lot for the maintenance and parts. So if I calculated the principal amount I spent for buying and maintenance, I could have enough to spend for a new one. I was satisfied in a way but also disturbed during the period of using it. So now, I prefer a new one over an old or used PC.
This is pretty much the reason why I said no, when the friend who build my pc asked me if he should buy used components, as they're cheaper and the place he buys it from is trusted that the used components are still in good condition, since most of them are pieces that were returned because it...
i would suggest you to buy a new one due to a lot of the comp[uting and clouyd copmputing are going to demand, the old would get crushed fast, aka, short product cycle life, it would make more cost rather than buying a new one.
I would prefer a new one considering the advancements in technology nowadays. Old or used computers are now facing extinction, having a hard time looking for used components that would last. If you know where to buy the good stuff for old components then that would be no problem but if you don't, then it is just a waste of money.
