Thought I'd put this out there, I've had an s5 for about 2 years, paid 80$ for it used has worked fine, before that I had an S4 for about 3 years can't remember. Only reason I got an s5 is that I heard at the time that since the S4 doesn't have 4g hd voice verizon wouldn't allow that on it's network, s5 has that. Since then I've learned I jumped the gun, it was only for NEW VERIZON pre-paid signups, afaik didn't effect my MVNO existing accounts. I buy used unlocked verizon so my MVNO network will use the verizon towers, it uses towers from all major networks but you can lock it in depending on what network vendor your phone came from. Well I dropped my s5 about a month ago and the glass screen protector cracked, not sure if the screen itself is cracked. Works fine but it seems a bit buggy now, and some of the apps I occasionally use no longer support or run well on Android 6 which is what this has on it. Functionally I have no needs beyond the S5, have several batteries, extended batteries, cases everything I need. But browsing at the store makes me wonder if a used older flagship like an s8/s9 OR a budget A0x or even switching to the clean G7/G8 would be good. Saw an A01 for 59$ new, from the box it has the "red" network logo which is verizon towers and has the basics I would need. On the other hand I can get a used verizon s5 for less than $30, with the same old OS problem. Older flagships have the non-replaceable battery problem though, wouldn't pay much for one for that. Any thoughts on an A0x, older flagship or etc? Sticking with Samsung or Moto. Edit: FlaGship, doh!
