Father upgrading to Andoid from iOS, recommendations?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

My father is looking at trading up from his iPhone 7, and was starting to make some Recommendations like the Honor 8x on Amazon, wanted to ensure also bands were well supported I believe the 8x is the L23 model covers most of the bands at least the important ones as well as my Canadian flagship phone does at least.

 

As well of course if there is oppertunity to actually get warranty with them etc, since for whatever reason can't seem to purchase a Honor 8x with warranty in Canada, from Huawei etc.

 

He is largely a Pokemon Go player so having something with good battery life or very least good support for battery extender cases since thats what he's been using on his iPhone.

and around 300$ CAD pricepoint plus/minus

 

There's pretty massive selection and I honestly haven't dabbled much in the phone space I only get a new phone every 4-5 years

 

Network is Telus Based, so Big 3

Sorry forgot to mention More support would be better since one of the reasons I was telling him to get a unlocked phone was can freely move between carriers as deals arise.

 

Freedom mobile support definitely isn't a requirement, I doubt it will come out here to the Okanagan

They are expanding to Kelowna soon, so hopefully they'll be throughout soon.

I live in the Lower Mainland, so I'm already benefiting :)

 

Are you willing to switch to Koodo, a Telus subsidiary? They have a system where if you wait out your contract or not, you still get the subsidies reducing price.

His phone is already on koodo and no contracts, and has the cheap 60$ 10gb plan which is one of the reasons can't take advantage of getting tabs etc
