Looking for a new phone

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I'm looking for a new phone under $200. Basically, the one I have right now (HTC 816) is just flat out terrible. The camera is garbage, I experience constant slow downs and freezes, and sometimes the phone just completely crashes at least once a day; and I won't even be doing anything intensive. I'll just be on snapchat, go to take a picture, and there will be a picture of something i just sent (basically glued if you want to think of it like that) to the screen, and the only way to fix it is by restarting snapchat.


Enough of the rant though. Basically, I'm looking for a phone under $200, but not to use it was a phone. What I mean by that is, I'm not going to be calling and texting on it, I need it for snapchat, instagram, messenger, clash of clans, stuff like that. Because right now, my phone can't even handle snapchat. It has to have a really good camera though, I'm sick of all these grainy pictures even when it's in focus.

If you can afford a few more dollars, both the Z3c and OnePlus X are good choices.

Also, the Moto X is available for that price as well.

The new Moto G (coming very soon) seems like a great option. You can also take a look at the Aceteal (However that is spelled) one touch idol.

The Motorola Moto G4 would probably be a great choice.
I have the Moto G2, it's amazing, still.

Someone told me today that the HTC One M8 is still an amazing phone with an amazing camera and sold me on it. I believe you could find that or an M7 under 200 if you look in the right places. Otherwise, there's a bunch of older iPhones on Tanga.com that are on blowout sale under $200, mostly iPhone 5C's and 5S's and worse.
