Default I need a new phone. What should I get any why?

I have an original droid from 2014. Its time to upgrade. I'm also with Verizon if that matters.

How long until 5k comes out?

i've had both the iphone and a galaxy (my current phone).

i had the iphone 6+ (and the 3g, 4, and 5, before that) and i currently have the galaxy s8+. i like both the iphone and the galaxy. but i like the galaxy just a little better.

there's nothing wrong with the iphone (that i've found). and i never had any issues with any iphone i had; aside from when i dropped my 6+ and the screen separated from the back, but that was my fault and the phone continued to work flawlessly despite that happening. granted, i haven't used any of the versions after the 6 since that was the last one i had. so i can't give any true up-to-date information regarding any of the new ones. but from what i've heard from people that own them (my sister and youngest niece being 2), they like them.

but one reason i got away from apple and went to google is due to both wanting something different and the price. my galaxy was about the same price is my 6+. and it was almost 4 years newer then the iphone. i've never had any issues with it, either, whether it be software or physical (i use otterbox defender cases for all my phones).

What do you know about the pixel 3? Someone at work said to get a pixel. I don't think any of them justify there prices.

Yeah, i'm more leaning towards that too plus it's easier to transfer contacts, photo's and apps over with the transfer app on android too.

Get the best and nicest phone you can reasonably afford

Why? Because you're worth it.

Bumping an old thread. Any thoughts on Google phones like the $350 Pixel? Coming from a 4 year old Samsung that's getting slower and has several screen cracks. Kind of tired of leasing phones and am thinking of just buying one.

Also, how is the experience of going from a more traditional carrier to a pre-paid plan?

I'm a fan of the prepaid carriers. Even the unlimited plans that the prepaid carriers have are a bargain compared to the big 3 networks. You'd save about $50 - $60 a month, so the cost of the phone would be saved in just 5 or 6 months, every month after that you're rolling in the dough ($600+ dollars a year is nothing to sneeze at).

I'd go to a prepaid carrier that is on the network you already use, especially if this is a remote rural area that is known for having good reception/data speeds on one network but not on other networks.

Most of the prepaid carriers have intro rates you can use as a trial run so to speak, so if you ever run into reception issues on a prepaid carrier but not the name brand carrier, you can just switch back and not be out too much money.

T-Mobile: Mint Mobile (unlimited or limited)
AT&T: Cricket (limited) StraightTalk (unlimited)
Verizon: Visible (unlimited, especially for family plans/"party pay" they call it)
Sprint/Boost/Virgin Mobile: don't!

And RedPocket is a good carrier if you want to choose which network. I have no experience with RedPocket but they're well regarded on sd. They have the cheapest plans on all of the networks. StraightTalk also has plans on all networks.

There are also deals at the prepaid carriers, so you don't always have to shell out full price for a new phone. They'll lock you in for a few months before you can unlock your phone. A good example is Cricket, an iPhone SE (2020) for $49.99, you'd be locked in for 6 months and you have to be a new customer. (cricket only offering deals for new customers is one reason I left to Mint)

For some it makes sense to pay more to have an unlocked phone and not deal with the hassle.

Those Samsung phones seem to run forever man. Mine is going on 4 years but I finally upgraded it after I dropped it in the driveway and cracked the screen. She still works though!

I can't say anything regarding the prepaid plans as I'm a loyal Verizon customer. They're the only carrier that works in my area.

I had prepaid T Mobile for awhile, seemed to work just like normal T Mobile but cheaper. Currently on Boost but probably going to switch to Mint soon to save $10 a month.

They are really durable. I've dropped the phone onto concrete numerous times. The main issue, probably, for me is the really short battery life. It seems like it's always low or I'm having to walk around with a portable charger. The Google phones supposedly have great battery duration.
