My long-suffering Samsung Galaxy S3 would get to retire... It has done great service but is slowing down as apps get more bloated...

 

For the bonus... use HTTPS Everywhere -  a Firefox, Chrome, and Opera extension that encrypts your communications with many major websites, making your browsing more secure.

I would give to mum to replace her Alcatel phone with 4gb of storage so she would have problems updating apps any more.

My Sony Xperia Z1, which constantly goes into a "Optimising Applications 1 of 203" routine when booting and takes 30 minutes to boot up.

This would be a great replacement my aging iPhone 5 which will not be getting any further iOS updates and therefore will become a security risk!

With not the best history in phones:

My wife's second [crappy] Samsung Galaxy Ace J2, really could do with replacing with a phone that can actually justify the "smartphone" moniker...

 

 

 

Note: the HTC Boss and "CDMA 2000" were actually mine and were actually pretty good for their day.

Replacing my pretty much dead Vodafone Smart Prime Ultra 6 - touchscreen has decided to 'touch' when it shouldn't.  It's gone bananas. :(

 

Currently replaced with a $49 VFD 300? - something like that.  It's horrible! :)

I am normally upgrading my phone every year and the current phone that I have sometimes likes to take ages to charge and can be very annoying,  Been wanting a phone that has android 7 but they cost too much at the moment.

Love  to replace my Nokia 3120. Still works ok but has a growing block blob on the screen so reading texts can be guess work. It only does texts and phone calls so a new phone would be bliss to have.

I would be replacing a Nokia Lumia 1520, which from a hardware perspective is a robust solid, good looking piece of kit.

 

From a software perspective, running Windows phone, lets the phone right down. Facebook, Google Photos, Hangouts all need to be accessed by the browser as there isn't the native apps. For a google account to succeed I need a Android phone.

 

I doubt the phone will ever be able to connect to a secure network like this picture depicts

 





The little things make the biggest difference.
