Need a new phone
« on: December 24, 2018, 07:47:16 PM »
So my phone died over the holiday and I need another one. So what's on the market now a days? Priority is durability but would be nice to have something with a bit more oomph for a change.

Yeah I'm going with Android, screw Apple. If you need to get ahold of me quick either send me a message on here or facebook, I can check both on my computer throughout the day.

I'll keep that in mind. Was hoping for a bit more dust and water protection but that should be adequate for most of my needs.

What are your thoughts on T-Mobile or AT&T as carriers? Looks like I may be able to get the CAT phone I want with them.

Gt back with me. I need to see what your schedule is the 28th if you still want to put that compressor in your garage. It needs a home.

I tried switching from Android to Apple. Lasted 3 days. Back to Android.

If you travel, then Verizon.

If you will have kids in the next 2 years, the Pixel is AMAZING for pictures (Pixel 2 and 3) and you get unlimited cloud storage for video and pictures.

Samsung has ALWAYS made me happy with durability and UI.

Network, Verizon. Phone Samsung.

Now honestly if you only have 1 line I suggest straight talk. I pay $55 a month for unlimited data, and I have proven a couple times that it actually is unlimited. They use the Verizon network and I have never had any trouble with them in the 8 years I have been with them.

I should have made my emphasis on durability more pronounced. Think concrete/asphalt plans, waste water plants, crawling in mud and water, up on ladders taking pictures of issues, basically can I play paintball with this in my pocket (assuming it was secured enough to not get lost) and then some and hold up for a few years. Nothing apple, Samsung, or google has produced has me convinced of this.

Any phone with an otterbox will be good for that.

Ding.

Otter box Defender case and all of your requirements are met.

Durability (as you're talking) is more of an accessory question now over the phone.
