I've purchased from bhphotovideo.com with a positive experience. They have a large selection of phones. They are based in the US, but they ship to Canada for free if over $99 and they can include the duties to avoid surprises 


Second this. And BHP always has great phones on sale

Don’t forget to consult your friends who might be upgrading, or through buy and sell groups. Just check it works before buying.

Re: Best places to buy unlocked phones

The best two phones I've bought came straight from the Google Play store.  The Nexus 5, and the current Pixel 3a.

 

Midrange prices, and useful for what I need.  I don't need a flagship - but the camera in the Pixel 3a is the same single lens as the Pixel 3, without the wide angle.
