So my Galaxy S II which I got used a couple of years back is about to give up and die.

 

I'm looking for input on what the best value for $ is.  Was wondering if anyone around SH had any strong opinions on which handsets are the best value for money. Will probably end up spending $2-300 at the end of  the month.

So we're back to this thread again.

 

Due to assorted circumstances, the buy didn't happen.  On the up side, the budget has gone up a bit.  I should have around $300 to use.

 

Looking at S5, Note 4, Huawei P8 Lite right now.  Will see what pops up on Black Friday locally.

I am NOT the guy to ask, but FWIW I like my LG G3, and LGs tend to be pretty inexpensive. The G4s are out now, my parents have two.

G3 (G4 if I get a REALLY good deal)  is now on my list.  I like that it has a removable battery.

Economics ended up prevailing.  I ended up getting a ZTE Axon.

 

Limited usage so far, but I'm liking it a shitton more than my crappy old phone.  Unfortunately, I had to get a new SIM card, as my old phone was so old it had and original SIM, as opposed to a MicroSIM or NanoSIM.  This phone has a NanoSIM which is fucking tiny and hard to put in place with my fingers.

You'd probably get the most out of the Huawei Honor line, ZTE Axon, or OnePlus lineup. If you live in the U.S. Straight Talk has the Galaxy S5 for $199, which it is still a very good phone, the Galaxy S6 for $399, and the Huawei Sensa for $179.

I ended up getting the Axon. It's been doing everything I ask of it really well.  Only real downside so far is no upgradable storage, but I don't use my phone as a media server anyway, so it probably won't be an issue for a while, if at all. Also very easy to use.

I was looking at getting the Axon 7 mini as it's for sale for $199 at the moment at Best Buy. It seems to be a very solid phone. It's pretty awesome how cheap and powerful Mid-range smartphones have become.
