I'm working on porting my game from iOs to Android without any big changes. The game works fine, but I still need to test it on Android device. So, I'm planning to buy (used) phone for testing the game. Which should I choose?
I want to test the game on 1080 x 1920px screen and according to google the most popular Android platform is 6th, 7th and 8th. Keeping this in mind I think I can get one of these:

Motorola Moto X Play
Huawei Nexus 6P
Samsung Galaxy S6 or S5
Google Pixel 2


Which is your favorite?

Hi Guzzz,

Have you considered an Android emulator?  For ease, I always use bluestacks to test.

Picking the least expensive popular device seems reasonable to me--not only saving some money, but also giving some assurance that if your game works on lower-end hardware, it should work fine on higher-end.
