Late 2019 Entry Level Smartphone Recommendations

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi. So after years of using flagship devices, I realized I had absolutely no need for a top of the line smartphone, and was just wasting money on it. I recently obliterated my huawei p10 plus as well as my backup p9, and am In the market for a replacement phone, so was looking for some advice on what to get. All I do with my phone is listen to music, watch a couple of youtube videos, google stuff, and maybe take 1 phone call a week, so requirements really aren't high.

 

I've got a few criteria that I want to meet tho:

 

1. MUST have a 3.5mm headphone jack

2. Decent battery life to keep going throughout the day

3. Must have either 128gb of internal storage, or dual sim with the option of inserting an SD card in one of those slots.

 

Things couldn't care less about:

1. Camera quality

2. gaming performance

3. Screen size

4. notches, with or without

5. Prestige/Snob factor of owning X

 

Things I dont want:

1. Apple.

2. Apple.

 

Thanks

You could still consider an older flagship because those are a lot cheaper than the current devices and will do a better job than a really cheap phone.

I was going to suggest the Pixel 3a, but it only has 64GB of storage.  I'd point to a Motorola phone like the G7 Plus (the non-Play versions of the G8 don't seem to be widely available on Amazon) or even something like the One Vision.

Whats your budget or target price?

You told us what are the must haves and what you don't care about. But what about the nice-to-haves?

What did you like and dislike about the P9 and P10P?


Awareness is key. Never enough, even in the face of futility. Speak the truth as if you may never get to say it again. This world is full of ugly. Change it they say. The only way is to reveal the ugly. To change the truth you must first acknowledge it. Never pretend it isn't there. Never bend the knee.

 

Please quote my post in your reply, so that I will be notified and can respond to it. Thanks.
