Hey guys

I am currently using an Iphone 7+, happy with the battery life, performance and size. Its getting a bit old coming 4 years old
I had a look at the current flagships of samsung, lg, apple, sony, xiaomi etc etc and tbh its like looking at clones of storm troopers.
Only thing i hate about flagships phones are the stupid high price these days....

What i'm looking for in a phone nowdays is nice big same sizeish screen as my current one, good battery life, good performance.
Anything good in the mid range offerings that i should know about?

I bought an XS Max 256 for half price from my carrier 5-6 months ago. I saved $860 beaver bucks.

Its still more then I wanted to pay, but a deal is a deal and the mics on my 7 were done.

Iphone 11 Pro if you want to stick with iphone, it has significantly better battery life than any other iphone. Iphone SE2 is also good.

Samsung S10+ if you want android - pros are bigger battery, better screen, headphone jack, expandable storage etc. S20 is a sidegrade in many respects.

Did I miss something or you already have what you want. You just want to change it because it's old?

I would look into the Samsung Galaxy A71 or A51
Maybe specifying a budget would help.

Money can be used for other things :)

Considering it seems you stick with your phone 3+ years I would just grab whatever flagship meets your needs.

I like my note 9 I'm sure the S20 is also great.

The new flagship iPhones are also good.

I think you should go with whatever ui you're most comfortable with.

Since money doesn't seem to be an issue for you, and you are content at the moment, why not just ride it out? In 3-4 months the newest flagship iphone will be out, just get that one and keep it for 4-5 years. meh I don't know

I use a Galaxy A50 phone I got for $200. It looks just as good as flagship phones screen wise, and I don't really do much other than youtube and netflix and a few games, and its plenty fast for me. I probably will keep this for a few years. It has Android 10 on it, meh I'm an OLED fanboy though, and my phone is where I watch most of my videos... so I mean if you don't do that, just get the iphone SE 2020 edition... that A13 chip is wicked fast

content yes, but yeah ive mentioned that the phone hangs from time to time and needing soft reset.
Battery life is okay but its draining faster.

Bottom line is im happy with current phone but im looking at new phones because its coming up 4 years old.
Pretty sure the next ios update my phone will get even slower...

That's a smart thing to do. I personally wont spend more than 200$ on a phone but then again I rarely use it.
Look into the Samsung A lineup or maybe some older phones like the Note 8 or LG V20.
I personally have a cheap Chinese phone Xaomi redmi 5 plus.

i actually really like my samsung a50, but for being a 4000mah battery it seems to drain really fast... i call bs on it being 4000 personally, lol iphone se 2020 is what 1800 mah battery and lasts about same amount of time, Apple is sooo damn good at optimization. honestly there only mistake is not going balls to the wall and putting like a 3000mah battery in that iphone se 2020, man the battery life would be insane, and probably not even that much heavier. just make it slightly thicker like 2mm or w.e it takes. would be worth it imo.

This, as for once, Asus has been on the ball and provided regular updates.
Rather good phone for the money too, with insane battery life.

You can't go wrong buying a model that's not current, like the Galaxy Note 9 or 9 plus, because the prices are very often half of what they were at launch.
That's what I found when I bought my Note 8 a year or so ago, when I picked it up for less than £500.

Only downside doing that, is that you might not got a lot of future software updates. Nokia is fairly safe bet for that option, due to their upgrade promises. Samsung seems to be hit and miss, but obviously their high-end models tend to be better supported.

I just bought the iPhone SE 2020 for my father and it is a great phone with great screen. For $400 I recommend it if you want to stay in the Apple ecosystem. Also, I think Woot at the moment has last gen the iPhone XS on sale, but the 2020 SE is a better buy.

SE 2020 would be my recommendation. I got a 8 Plus for a cheap price myself and I like the feels and looks of these. Some may say that "damn, hella large bezels" but that doesn't matter to all of us.

Had a Pixel before and it had similar bezels, in fact it had hella lot of iPhone look.

im open to try new models, i had a look at the iphone se 2020, nice spec!
the screen is a quite small now at 4.7 inch, i can probably take a 5.0 inch but no smaller

as for updates thats the thing with android mid tier and lower tier phones gets hardly any updates at all.
mostly the updates goes towards the flagship models.

Previous android ive owned is xperia x10, xperia z, and xperia z5.
The xperia z was probably the best design and built. Feels very premium but sony has always delivered a second tier cpu/gpu on their flagships.
On the plus side their camera is very good and audio is superb

Trust me, 4.7" vs 5" isn't a huge difference.

When you get old you have a harder time seeing text, so recommending a 4.7 inch screen when he is coming from a 5.5 inch screen isn't doing him any favors.. I went from 4.7 to 6.5 and it is excellent. I did say good bye to my pocket though.

true but going from 5.5" to 4.7" is which is my current iphone 7+
Yeah, I have a 8+ and it's a good screen size. I went from 6" (Nexus 6) to 5" (Nokia 5) back in the day and that was a huge difference.

I'd say that it's still an advantage for iP SE that it's pretty usable with one hand. :toast:

When you get old you have a harder time seeing text, so recommending a 4.7 inch screen when he is coming from a 5.5 inch screen isn't doing him any favors.. I went from 4.7 to 6.5 and it is excellent. I did say good bye to my pocket though.
You have a good point there.
