What is the best speedlight to use with the Nikon D850 and why?

Despite the incrediable ability of the D850 to work in low light situations, I want to get a flash unit. I would prefer to get something less expensive than the Nikon Sb-5000 or the Metz mecablitz 64 AF-1, which I'm sure are fine units. But do I need to spend that much, and if so, why? Can I get much of the same functionality from any less expensive flashes? Anyone have any experience with using the D850 with any of these: the Yougnuo vn968n, the Neewer Pro i-ttl, the Altura AP-N1001 (an Amazon choice) or the Godox V860II-N?

(My old Nikon speedlight for my Nikon F3 will not fit in the hot shoe).

I'm not planning to use the flash in a studio, but in the real world, including fill light situations. I've read some good things about the Godox, but not any of the others. Not only am I interested in function, but also how the exposure and color rendition are affected by the flash.
