Wife has a note 4, finally expiring... What should we get?
I am not paying a grand or close to it for another phone. So what other manufacturers offer something as large as the note with great capabilities>

How are the moto phones?

Google phones?

It is hard to believe how expensive the Samsung flagship phones have become...

All the flagship big phones are $900 to $1000, aren't they? You can try to get Verizon on a BOGO to cut down, but that's about it.

re: Wife has a note 4, finally expiring... What should we get?
Depends on what she needs a phone for. If it's mostly taking pictures and browsing social media, then I'd backup the Samsung A50 recommendation. It's got a lot of features for the price. (It's basically a S8+. Which is still a damn good phone.)

The current gen of Google phones are pretty lacking in features and the build quality is kind of shitty for what you pay.

IMO, if I was buying a phone today, I'd hit Amazon and buy an unlocked Samsung S9+ for around $400. It's pretty much a sweet spot for price and features.

Ok, we were looking at the Moto z4 just because of features, Does anyone have one of these?

and I will look on amazon for a S9+ I am figuring the pricing you gave is a used phone, correct?

thanks folks.

Find the best phone to fit your needs then shop the price down on google.com

I bought my unlocked Pixel XL brand new, still in the box, a few years ago for $500 shopping from Google.

Moto phones are good but lagging in performance and camera quality. I had a moto pure x until 3 months ago that was great but went with a Pixel 3XL that I really like.

You talking about the Pixel or the Pixel 3A?

Which features are they lacking?

What is shitty about the build quality?


Based on most comments here at TD I assumed the Pixels were solid. Be nice to hear some criticisms.

I replaced my Note 4 with a Note 8 last year. Would highly recommend that approach.

This is awful advice. Ignore completely.

The 3a and 3aXL is made of plastic and is made to be a midrange phone. (That's what it's priced at to be fair.)

You'd be better off buying a S9 or S9+ for about the same cost. Better build quality, faster, more RAM, more storage capability, better battery. Just better in every way.

No wireless charging on the 3a's would be a deal breaker for me.

The 3a was just on sale for $200. Has a better camera and better software plus unlimited uncompressed video and photo storage.

However, the 3a is not supposed to be compared the galaxy line. It's a budget line.

One more option for you is the One Plus line. The 6t is a great phone fore the money and the 7 is brand new.
You'll enjoy any of the phones listed in the comments .. I bought my wife a Pixel 3 and she loves it.
