Looking to upgrade phone but I have a interesting issue

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Original PosterOP

So I am currently rocking a LG K20 Plus. I am running out of room in the 32GB of internal storage they give, thanks to more and more apps not allowing me to move them to my MicroSD card. I have always had a phone with external storage ability, but I see that going by the wayside these days. 

I would like to move up to a phone that has 64GB or 128GB of internal storage (especially if I can't mount an SD card.)

I mainly use my phone for watching videos and ordering food and drinks. 

If I could, I would use my son's LG Stylo 5 that we got for school (I like the screen resolution), but quickly replaced because it didn't have enough internal space. 

 

My work doesn't allow me to have a camera phone, so the camera(s) will be physically removed and expoxyed over the holes. 

So I REALLY don't care if the phone has a good camera or not! And I don't know how much more they will charge me for removing 4 cameras, let alone 2. 

 

I have T-mobile as my carrier in the US. 

Hopefully I will be able to get an Otterbox case for it. I work on Navy ships so I need a case that can take a hit. 

I would like to keep my cost under $800USD, but I would prefer under $500USD if possible. 

 

So far the only thing I could find was a Google Pixel 4A. 

 

And I really am not considering an iPhone. 

 

Any suggestions and recommendations would be GREATLY appreciated.

I don't really like the risk of pulling them out myself! LOL

I don't have an iFIXit kit!!

I was only charged $40 for the removal and epoxy job last time. (3 years ago now?)

yeah thats fair but id figure your work would compensate you for adhering to their restrictions. from a policy standpoint woud think theyd wanna incentivize that, lest people try and circumvent it. but oh well...

With their rules, I can just leave my phone in my car. If I want to bring it into the Controlled Industrial Area, I'll remove the camera. 

Their position, if I am important enough to have a phone, then by GOSH the government will provide me with one.

Ok cool. In that case the Poco x3 is a great phone for the price only problem being 4 cameras but considering how cheap the phone is you can add the price of the removal and it still would be cheaper. It has a great battery and a good display. A Pixel 4a would also be a good bet.

Thanks!! I'll look up the Poxo!!

I was looking at gaming phones, but I just don't think I could do that. If I want to game, I have a PC for that.
