Which phone should I upgrade to?
« on: April 11, 2019, 01:01:17 PM »
I am very happy with my iPhone SE, but the battery hasnít been acting well towards me lately.

For simplicityís sake, I'm thinking of upgrading to one of the iPhones, but Iím not at all too thrilled with the massive sizes they come in these days.

Has anyone else here upgraded from the SE, and can share their experiences?

A Nokia 6101 would be a great upgrade from an SE

I went from the SE to the X and I hate it!

I hate the facial unlocking instead of the finger.

I hate the weight, it's soo much heavier and bulkier then the SE.

So why did I do it? Because I don't foresee the phones getting smaller :( although I did shell out even more for the X instead of the absurdly huge, but cheaper, XR
If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.

Iíve been thinking of that, though Iíd rather not get something thatís been around so long already. Itís a matter of time till Apple wonít update them.

You may be able to find a decent deal on the XR - not the top of the line, but good enough. If you trade in your SE to apple directly, you can get it for a mere $670 without subsidies.

Apple also sells refurbs, but they are still expensive - https://www.apple.com/shop/refurbished/iphone

That's exactly why I went with the x

I had the Essential phone for a while and although the phone is excellent, it has a connectivity issue where i got poor reception in many areas where other phones where working perfectly, so i wouldn't recommend it.

I used it on both, with Sprint and T-Mobile, and had the same issue with both carriers.

I have an AT&T Galaxy S8+
The screen is cracked and the webs are growing. Just yesterday the iris sensors stopped working because the cracks  spread over them.
Looking for a new phone. I have verizon prepaid service. Willing to trade in the S8+ for a better deal. Dont want to spend much.
I'm not who you think I am.
