Re: phone

In reply to: Which phone is better?

First you have to define what criteria you use for better. For example, if 2 phones are identical except for screen quality and amount of storage, would you prefer the one with a better screen or the one with more storage?

If you know what you want, start reading reviews. Ours are on https://www.cnet.com/topics/phones/products/, but google will find a lot of others for you.

Then decide and buy it.

I'd skipe the Huawei. Why? Spyware.

In reply to: Which phone is better?

"The spyware is the product of Chinese firm Shanghai Adups Technology Company, and it targeted more than 700 million low-end Android devices. Adups said it worked with phone makers like Huawei and ZTE to develop the tool to monitor user behavior — ostensibly to identify junk text messages and calls."

Samsung is under the glare of many thousand researchers so you don't find such on their phones but then again, users may install Facebook or another app with spyware.

Re: best

In reply to: Samsung

If Samsung is best, Huawei is - at most - second best. Or the other way around, of course. Which of the two statements do you find true?

the other way around

In reply to: Re: best

Well maybe 2-3 years ago, I'd say Samsung is better. But now Huawei is just on a roll.

that's true

In reply to: Samsung

Without trying to advertise, but you're right. Although a Samsung brand cell phone is simple, it is a good investment.

Moto G6

I hear good things about the Moto G6. I recently assisted my sister with purchasing one after her phone gave up the ghost. It has nice features for a $250 device.

Good Phones for Consideration.

In reply to: Which phone is better?

For a good phone at minimum cost with nice features, I would suggest a Moro 6. If you are looking for a flagship that is chuck full of features and at a nicely discounted price, I by all means recommended the Samsung Galaxy Note 8. Both of these devices have good reputations/reviews and I own both.

Samsung Is An Ideal Choice

In reply to: Which phone is better?

I would say Samsung is an ideal choice. But in your choices, I would suggest the Samsung A6 as it is newer. The J7 prime was released back in 2016, if I'm not mistaken. The A6 has a 4GB RAM, compared to the 3GB RAM from the J7 and you have more internal storage on the A6; Not to mention that the camera on the A6 is also better.

The Note 8 is a great choice. Yes, it is not a mid-range phone, but the Note 9 will be launched soon and by then, the Note 8 will have significant price reduction on them.

I'm not a fan of Samsung

In reply to: Which phone is better?

I've haven't had good experiences with Samsung especially in the mid-range. They're loaded with unnecessary bloatware, and touchwiz can be annoying laggy at times. But this was 2 years ago, wonder if things have changed now.

iPhone

In reply to: Which phone is better?

Hello Bobsie183! I really want to say that it’s the iPhone! I used mine for seven years and it recently started to give me some headache! The battery keeps swelling and I have already changed it three times. When this happened, the screen gets pushed outwards and it started bugging really badly! If a lifespan of seven years is OK for you, then go for the latest version, otherwise, do seek advice for Android users!

Never Trust On Samsung's Budget Devices.

In reply to: Which phone is better?

Never go with Samsung devices under budget ranger, I personally don't trust on Samsung's budget devices because they start hanging very fast. So you should go with Huawei P20 lite or try going with Redmi Note & Pro which is the best budget smartphone.

My Choice

In reply to: Which phone is better?

as per my own experience, I will be recommending you normal mobile Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 and Rugged smartphone Poptel P60.

Xiaomi Note 7: trendy look with professional photography cameras.
Poptel P60: it has all powerful feature including wireless charging.

Due to malware or spyware today I'd avoid the Poptel.

In reply to: My Choice

Any MediaTec based phone. ADUPS is still found among others.

The Note 7 is the Qualcomm so it's one of those two to pick.

Here is few phones name.

In reply to: Which phone is better?

We're well into 2019 now, and we've seen a huge number of smartphone launches, which means our best smartphone list has seen plenty of new entrants over recent weeks.

And now we have two more new entries who have bagged a coveted top spot in our best phone rundown - keep an eye out for the Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10e.

Update: The Samsung Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10e have both earned a place in our best phone round-up.

There are plenty more top-flight smartphones claiming to offer the best experience on their way too, with the likes of the Nokia 9 Pureview, Huawei P30 Pro, Huawei P30 Galaxy Fold, LG G8 ThinQ, LG V50 ThinQ and Huawei Mate X having all been announced recently.
