Planning to buy a new phone any ideas

Recommended Posts

I am an iphone person.... but depending where you live, craigslist iphone 6s? Great phone, plenty fast, great camera, battery can be replaced "easily" when it takes a dump on ya, touch ID works well, and its an iphone, so it sorta just works.

 

If your an android user, maybe you can find a pixel 2 for about 250 which would be a great option as well.

Pixel 2 from Amazon or eBay is a great option, I have one myself. It has a last gen snapdragon 835 processor (current being 845) that stands up really well today. 

I have one myself, I strongly recommend dropping the extra $25 on a dBrand skin as the back plastic scratches really easily. 

 

I got mine damaged for $125 and it was $90 for a screen replacement.

Don't mind the tape, I replaced my screen and forgot to buy adhesive. Just temporary while I wait for it from Amazon :)

pretty much about your budget, and OS. if you are a gamer, you should pick yourself an Android, not only you can download games more easily, but you have more access to the stores, and the droid phone usually has more option to with ram, like 6gb or even 8 gb of ram. i am an apple fan, but i still pick a pixel phone, can do everything you want from a phone, can access to outsider like APKnite APKpure instead of only on the default CHplay store, that's just one example of how open you can do with an android.

You could buy a used fair condition s8 or s8+ in sites like swappa for around 200-250. Have a look dude, that or save up some more dollars for a poco-phone F1 as it truly is a good phone
