Advice for buying new smartphone

by Portuga49pt / January 25, 2017 9:06 AM PST

I want to buy a new smartphone, to upgrade what I already have (Bq Aquaris 5.7, with an 5.7 '' Full HD display (386ppi), Quad-Core 1.5 processor , 16Gb internal memory and 2Gb Ram).
I've always been evolving in smartphone with regard to features.. I already had a Samsung Galaxy W; a Samsung Galaxy Express 4G and finally this Bq. Over time, my smartphone no longer meets my needs but now I intend to buy something better within a value up to 300 euros or less. I value a good processor, a good RAM memory, a good screen, (2K, 5.5 inches maximum), reasonable internal memory that can be expanded, and a GOOD main camera.
I have already researched, I have already seen models that could fulfill my requirements, but I am sincere, it is a lot of information to make my choice and it difficults it too. I have two kinds of smartphones that I would love to buy, but they are above my budget. Here they are...

- Alcatel Idol 4S
- Huawei P9

I would therefore welcome opinions on what might possibly meet my requirements, comparing with these two models and taking into account what I want. Last question... What abou the Vernee Apollo smartphone?
