What are using for a Cell Phone and with what do you want to replace it with?

I finally decided upon the budget friendly Samsung A71 and went to get it. I was told if I traded in my ancient S7, I could get in a promotion, the flagship S20 Plus for even less money. So I did it. Very pretty, big screen (even these old eyes can read text in digital books upon it without reading glasses) fast, 12 Gig RAM, 128 Gig flash. I put in a 128 Gig SD card for added storage that I already had on hand. I'm advised to try "Among Us" free mobile application. I'll give it a try.

I'm using an HTC U12 Life.

I'd always liked HTC - reliable, good quality, good design; they also made the Google phones too until recently. But they can't get their marketing right, and that's what shifts phones rather than how good the phone is so they've been dying away, and sold lots of their design team to Google outright. Given this, I had misgivings about picking up a phone from a smartphone provider on its last legs, but it's worked out fine.

I've got to the point where I prefer to minimise my money funding China's geopolitical progress as much as possible, so that's seemingly 70% of the smartphone market out from my consideration.

*weeps onto my S5's screen*
I thought I was doing pretty well taking care of my battery. But I found myself getting to 0% about every 20 hours. Batteries do die over time.
My new phone is going for 2-3 days before needing a recharge.
Keeping my S7 was like keeping my sneakers for too long. When I get a new pair, I'm asking myself why I hadn't done it sooner!
Hope you get to treat yourself soon.
