Man, I wish my Meizu M3s would break today. Thing is, I would replace it with another el-cheapo option until I see what the new iPhone 8 looks like. Then I'll make up my mind.

If I broke my iphone 7 I'd try and limp on on a backup phone till the 8 is out. Fairly invested in apple, and happy with it.

If I broke my Samsung J5Prime today I'd replace it with another -- does everything I'd ever need to do, fine camera, superb battery life, and cheap!

i have an Umi Z and i would get another one, performance is the same as an S7, deca core 2.6Ghz 4GB , full metal body , fast charge and it runs on pure Android 7 , all for under $300.

 

 

 

 

Does this have the LTE 700Mhz band? (band 28 I think). I'm looking at these cheaper chinese phones, but it looks like only the Xiaomi note 3 special global edition has that band.

Wish they'd put the latest and greatest processor in one of those - would make much more sense

If I broke my Xperia Z5 Premium, I'd replace it with the Xperia XZ Premium. Coz Sony.



My XZ became broken in my mind once the XZ Premium became available so I got the XZP in Hong Kong when I was there recently.

Coz Sony ++

If I broke my Samsung J1 Ace, I'd buy a Samsung J1 (2016), because it only costs a J1 price to replace :o) The RAM is enough for Youtube watching, messaging and social media (same goes for the quad-core CPU). Storage is big enough to handle a large off-line Google maps file for use as a GPS, and can take a 64GB microSD for all the social media pics. But mainly, because it's cheap to break.

If I broke my Xiaomi Redmi Note (1) today I'd replace with Xiaomi Redmi 3X, or is the Redmi 4 out yet?

I'm surprised no one has mentioned a OnePlus 5 cool 8GB RAM at the price compared to other handsets of similar specs.

If I broke my iPhone 7, I would be temporarily be using my backup iPhone 6+ until the iPhone 8 (or whatever Apple will call it in a month or so) and will replace it with the Plus Version. The reason, I find the batter life on the smaller iPhone is nowhere near as good as the Plus was.

 

My 7 can get about 12 hours of the day before a charge, where as when I've had to use my wife's Plus (she didn't like the form factor of the 7 and I got to use the 7+ for three days), I got a full day with charge to spare. She wanted the plus back because she didn't like the fact the battery didn't last.
