I have been having a few problems with my 4 year old cell phone. So my Husband jumped on the computer, looked for a sale and read up on the best phone on the market today. We were very surprised that the phones are getting smaller.
I like my big phone and love that it's easy to use. The camera takes really nice pictures. My husband found us a great deal on line for the same size phones and lower payments. ( More $ for stamps ) I just know that I would lose a little phone in my purse Yes! Gerry said that would be a problem for him as well. ( Losing the smaller phone in his truck) I told him "Well you should clean out that purse" I had tears running down my face. He just shook his head at me.
Who likes the bigger phones or wishes the flip phones would come back!?
I am a used World wide stamper. Always have been and always will bee.
My Motorola flip phone is the only phone that never developed a crack or scratch on the screen. I had just remarked to my wife today, how much I missed the flip phones! She dropped her 2-month old and shattered her protective screen cover.
crazyquilter, I don't really like having a mobile/cell phone , but have to have one for work. I would like any phone that doesn't keep changing its own settings or trying to dial out while in my pocket, I sometimes get the torch come on and get a light shining out of my pocket (yet the phone still says it is locked). I have also had relatives phone me worrying because they have had a call from me but I haven't spoken to them when they answer, also, it turns the ring off by itself and I don't hear the calls (I cannot use vibrate as I cannot hold the phone in my hands when vibrating, I just drop it) then I have to go to voice-mail to see if it was important.
I think a flip phone might work better for me as long as there are no external buttons.
BTW, we got 3 brand new iPhone 6 back in June for $100 when we switched to Boost Mobile. I was sick of AT&T, so took advantage of the Boost offer.
The Boost Mobile site is temporarily down for website update, so I couldn't check to see if offer was still going on, but the deal we got was...
$50 for iPhone 6 (also Facebook buy one get one free offer, limit 1) -- so we ended up getting 3 phones for $100 (my youngest daughter already had iPhone 6) $100 for 4 lines (at least one line must be switched from another carrier), unlimited talk/text/data, 3GB 4G data (throttles to slower when exceeded, but still unlimited)
Agent also threw in 1 month free phone repair plan (I canceled after 1 month).
The general news feeds say that Boost uses the Sprint network, which is considered inferior to the other major cellphone networks. But after making 2 long distance trips to some remote areas both East US and far West US, I really don't notice any greater signal problems than I had with AT&T or T-Mobile.
I like that Boost is a monthly pre-paid plan with no long-term contract. The only long-term part, is that they require you to stay with Boost for at least 6 months before they will unlock your phone for free. Not at all unreasonable requirement compared to the other expensive 1- to 2-year contract requirements by the other carriers for a free or discounted phone. I had been telling my wife for years that those were very bad deals because of the higher monthly costs of the contract, and she finally understood why when we switched to Boost.

I have an iPhone 8 Plus which has a really big screen. I had the normal size iPhone 6 prior to this one, I liked it too, but I started having a hard time reading websites, Pinterest, email, etc. on it as my eyes got older so I went to the bigger screen last year.
The 6 originally came out in 2014 so it’s starting to show up with some great deals like khj was mentioning and there is a plus version of 6 that has the bigger screen too.
If you mostly use your phone to make calls it’s a waste of money to pay for the newer or bigger screen versions though.
If you like really great photos iPhone is awesome, even the older ones, they just keep getting better every new version.
As one other example, i spend a lot of time on stampbears with my phone and it works great with my bigger screen. I use an app called “Tapatalk “ for it and a bunch of other forums. I made a thread on stampbears somewhere about good apps, I should update that as there are even more great things you can do on one of these modern phones these days.

We have T-Mobile and have had for years. We are on their 55+ plan. It is the only network that will work where we live and we still have to have a signal booster in the house.
Randy has a Samsung but can't remember which one. Large screen for his eyes but also fits in his shirt pocket.
I have the Samsung Galaxy J7-newer ones are out now. It has been really good to me except for one problem. It butt dials, purse dials and dog dials (if it is laying on the bed and the dog lies on it). It has enough memory if I remember to download the photos to the computer. I have 1 more payment on it I think I might trade it in for a newer phone. It will definitely be another Samsung.
I used to have an iPad which I gave to one of the kids. My Fire Pad works a whole lot better.
Apple may have been good many years ago but not anymore.
