Need new cell phone...
« on: December 30, 2020, 09:11:33 AM »
OK, I desperately need a new cell phone...
Don't really WANT to spend $2,000 for a phone!!!  🙂  What are the good brands/models out there now?  Need to make a decision by end of this week...  🙂

Thank you!

I bought a second hand Samsung Galaxy and haven't looked back.   Cheap phones are just frustrating.   I've tried a few that were highly recommended.   Blu, Alcatel, it just ended in sorrow.

Just make sure you know if you need GSM or CDMA.

My iphone is ancient and I know little about the phone business.  However, the current issue of Consumer Reports rates the Samsung Galaxy Note 20 ($1300), the Apple iphone 12 Pro, 128GB ($1,000) and the LG Velvet 5G, 128 GB ($600) highly.  Refurbished models, with a warranty may be available for less

Oh, I was talking a second hand Galaxy S7 for $80 or so.   You and I have different definitions of cheap.

Hi Mark-I wasn't trying to define cheap.  Just sharing.

Actually when you posted it made me realize that I hadn't defined cheap.   I said "cheap" but gave no price range.
