Anyone have something along lines of a Galaxy S5 that needs a new home ? Wifes phone is good as stuffed...... she just needs something that isnt a dog, has a semi decent camera, and prefer water/splashproof (her job involves buckets of water.) She did have an S3 which she liked.... until she found it wasnt waterproof :D

 

Only looking to spend minimal $.....  Condition dosent have to be perfect, long as eveything works :)

I have an S6, there is a crack on the camera lens cover though? I haven't bothered to see if it is fixable as I have no use for the phone.

I have an LG G6 that will need a new home soon; it was an awesome phone and still runs well enough but is in pretty rough condition (both the front and back are cracked from drops) but yeah would tick the cheap box at least  :D

 

No idea how much it would cost to repair but I can't be bothered TBH; it is still usable as is.

The problem I have found with old androids is lack of updates, security, and lack of app support for older android versions. If you are using it solely as a phone, then that may not be a concern. That is why I would probably just buy a new low end or mid range phone, which has a new android version on it. or look for deals, as the prices of even the flagship models can drop significantly.

She only uses it for Facebook, calls and txts but current phone has decided the SD card is no longer real and refuses to install apps to it.... so it just complains all the time its out of space. 

 

But its what happens you buy a budget phone new ;)
