Samsung phones have the advantage of having knox, which let's the filter be stronger.
But the iphone is just as good

Apple also has an internal block on any other than Whitelisted apps and addresses. That is the main block and the filter is a redundancy.

A couple generations old s series used is probably best value, from somewhere like back market or swappa

Not rather a more recent A series device? Given that the task at hand isn't that resource hungry, I can see quite a bit of value in getting longer OS updates (or at least be on a supported OS version for longer) as well as 5G.

I hear that.
I guess it depends how many generations back you go.
Depends how many gens back you go, will be how long of a difference there will be in os updates.
But the hardware can easily be better when it's a gen or 2 back used, right next to a current gen budget model.

There's a part of me that thinks that maps/waze could sometimes get resource hungry..

Agreed (though not necessarily about the 5g part)
Try the:
Samsung Galaxy A13 5G
Samsung Galaxy A14 5G
or even Tracfone Samsung Galaxy A03s (and you can unlock after 60 days)
Older Flagships tend to have some nice wow-factor features, but the really useful/important ones are what gets passed down to the cheaper devices.

True, But the used phone business is very shady so its hard to know what you are really getting. Just one or two gens back really cant get as low as these prices...

Haven't heard horror stories much from swappa and back market.
I guess that pricing is true within Samsung, I don't sit around them as much

What did you guys end up getting? A Samsung device or an iPhone for waze and Gmaps only.
Wanting to spend 200-250. Want a device that has speed and will last. Will aim for a newer model.

 In regards to the filter. Who are you guys using for a waze/GoogleMaps device.

What’s the cheapest service out there for Waze only device?
The device is an unlocked iPhone, with only Waze app allowed.
Only need data for Waze, no talk/text needed.
[Yearly plan would be gr8!]
