Changing the BB is the cheapest, whether the UN26 or 55. 55 has better bearings, metal cup and better axle. Even if it was just some nebulous "better" that a person didn't understand or want to understand, $7-$10 more for nebulous "better", that's going to last the life of that cheap bike, isn't worth arguing about
