    Latest Samsung G8 or the latest Samsung Note. Great cameras and fast data. I use 2 in my business and the email, maps and hotel reservation notifications are seamless. Big time savers.

    I was going to replace my Samsung with a new one when the battery issue come up. I get the latest iPhone instead and am really enjoying it. It does a few things my android never could, but that is likely very specific to my circumstances!

    I'm in the market for a good camera, and the Pixel camera gets rave reviews. The attached cell phone is an added feature. Fortunately, I can wait a while for prices to slip lower.

    Still using an older flip phone. I hate what phones have turned into. Salesmen tell me about all the new and newest features of myriad phones...all I really want to do is call someone!

    I use mine for falling asleep listening to audiobooks while I play Sudoku...

    Wife uses hers for facebook & messenger & whatsup, and taking 100 photos a day...

    Lower-end Samsungs... usually google "Best photo smartphone from (insert 2 years ago)", and at the time they were $800, now $150 new... Buy on Amazon.

    Maybe something made by the Chinese. That way you don't have built in NSA back doors, and the Chinese probably won't be interested enough in you to try to break into your data.
