    I am on an I phone 8 for the last year or more. I find them a great phone. Previous to this 8 I had a 6 and a 4 before that. I have it in an otter box case and it has been dropped so many time. Many times from good heights and over all 3 I phones I had over the last 6 years I have never even broken a screen or had to leave any of them in for repairs. I use it for a lot of internet use to so wouldn’t be with out it.

    I had IPhone 4,5 & 7 bought a Huawei P30 this year as the battery life in the iPhone had my head wrecked. I'll be changing back in the next few months, this has a great battery, brilliant camera and the big screen is much easier use, you wouldn't go back to a small phone but I don't find the android lay out user friendly in comparison to the iPhone and I miss iTunes, don't think Spotify is as good.

    Have only ever had Samsung smart phones, have the current one 2 or 3 years, if I was changing I'd go same again. I only ever had Nokia's before that. I don't like change.

    Any midrange android will be perfect, or even a flagship one from a couple of years ago. The playing field has really leveled out. Most high end androids have to differentiate themselves with oled screens and multiple camera setups, just not necessary for a functional phone.

    Just make sure that you have enough memory on the phone you choose.

    Using a Samsung A20 for €160, I not programming the launching of Apollo 21 from it, so this is perfect and loseable/breakable at that money

    I had an Xcover 3 until it met a sad end a few months ago due to my stupidity, I've an Xcover 4 now. I find them functional phones for calls/texts and good enough for light internet use.

    New phone is doing the business, my usage would be light enough but never had 3 days out of a battery charge 'till now, nicer in the pocket than it's predecessor and a better camera and a few more details.:Thumbp2:
