So many choices, so I’m hoping someone can help me narrow them down.
I started with a Defy, moved up to a Moto X, and X2, then to a G5 Plus. Each of the phone was great at first, but after a while would seem to bog down.
I expect to have my phone for a while, especially if I pay a lot for it, so features/specs that won’t be outdated quickly would be preferred.
- First thing, I have about 200 or so apps (including built-in) on my phone. I will probably always have at least that many. I don’t always use them, but I’ve had close to 250 in the past.
- A phone that gets more Android updates (Google, older Moto) is also a plus. The same OS for many years is not preferred.
- I prefer my phones with as few apps as possible out of the box, but that’s not a requirement.
- Decent camera, decent amount of RAM, expandable storage.
- Good support. Motorola has had great hardware support. You can get a refurbished exchanged phone out of warranty for less than you can on eBay. Broken screens are, relatively speaking, cheap to fix.
It doesn’t have to be a low end phone, but I’m ok buying something higher than what I need (if I can swing it) now so it will last longer. For PC people, I’d rather spend money (again, if I can swing it) on an Intel i7, even if I don’t need that power now, knowing it will last longer before needing to be replaced.
I may not need a Google PIxel 6 or Samsung Galaxy s10, but I’m tired of my Moto phones performance not lasting.
Alternatively, if anyone has any good performance/cleanup solutions, I’m open to those as well.
