    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.

    I've had android phones but my next phone will be an iPhone. Too many applications suck in the android version or don't support certain features. I use my own cell phone for work purposes: second level authentication, one time pass codes, and some proprietary applications specific to computer hardware I support. The android applications are almost always inferior to iphone version of the application. For a while it got better but now the android applications are on the slide again.

    Just went from a Samsung s4 to a s8+......gal recently went from s3 to a s7......in both cases we purchased at Sams club...she got a 250 and I got a 350 gift cert ......so far so good on both ....much more excess memory in both...only bad is the s8 is a different type charging adaptor than all previous Samsung devices.....but both the s7 and s8+ have fantastic cameras ...and batteries are good.....all said I would prefer the s7 due to compatibility with previous....s8 also has curved edge screen which presents challenges for screen protectors...screens are superior to others I have seen

    Forget about anything other than Samsung or Apple right now. Everything else is inferior, even the Google phone unless all you want to do is make calls.
