    Iphone 6 se....I don't need a large screen on my phone, I have tablets for that kind of viewing. It fits nicely in my front jeans pocket w/o sticking out or (god forbid) falling out.

    I'm on my 2nd Galaxy Note 4. I'm going to buy another Exc. condition used one for future use and as a backup. Can't beat it with extra batteries and a 256gb Micro SD card. Best all-around device made in the last 3 years IMHO.

    Best Buy was having a good promotion on preordering the S8+, so my wife and I upgraded.

    I'll admit that the promotion for the $100 off and the free VR Gear worth $129.99 helped prompt me to upgrade our phones. So now we're waiting for our two VR headsets to come in.

    What I also like is the wireless charging, which my son has had since he already has an Samsung Galaxy S6 Active. I got his wireless charger cheap off of Amazon, and it works good. For my wife's S8+, we got her the OEM Samsung wireless quick charger, which has worked great so far.

    I noticed they went with the USB Type C cables, which might be an improvement over the standard micro usb connectors. But it is nice to go wireless charging now.

    Back on my ancient Nexus 4. The 5X was a pretty good phone except I got the gift of the bootloop error twice. Waiting for my third 5X and I'll probably just sell it on Amazon. Not sure what phone I'm looking for next but I'll be apprehensive to buy another Google device for a while. I love Android but this is a little absurd.

    Still plodding along with a Galaxy 4S, but I'm seriously considering getting the 7S now that the 8 is out. My problem with the 4S is that it's completely out of memory and warning me all the time about it. The 7S only has 32Gig internally...still seems like not enough space! Anyone speak to this for me?

    I look at phone storage based off the current OS that is out and at least one major upgrade (unless you want a new phone every year) and camera largely. While they all allow for downgrading the recording quality, why buy a phone with 4k video only to record at 1080 to save space? When I got my iphone 6 almost two years ago I opted for 64gig as the minimum with no on board expand-ability. With the new iteration at the end of this year coming, I would go for 120+ if I were to upgrade...same goes for the android platform. Once you add in a few apps, especially if you're a social media user (facebook, snap, instagram, etc), maybe a couple movies for when you travel, some music for your trip to work and you get a descent amount of email. It doesn't take long for 32/64 gigs to disappear.

    Thanks very much for your response. Problem is the 7S only comes with 32 gig. I can not get anything bigger. I'm sure I can use my memory card which is another 32 gig but like you, I'd like to get 100+ gig if possible because I'm just going to be in the same position in a few years.

    My wife and I just upgraded from the S4, and I'm assuming that you're talking about the S7 because the S8 just came out and there is no iphone 8 yet.

    If you're going to upgrade, then why not the S8? It has 64GB onboard memory and the capability to take up to 256GB micro SD cards to expand the memory. When up insert a microSD card, the phone informs you that camera storage is automatically assigned to the microSD card. Personally, I have a 64GB microSD card in mine, so 64GB onboard memory + 64GB microSD card = 128GB total memory. I plan on buying a 128GB microSD card later this month.

    Sorry - Yes, I meant the S7 but said 7S. Sorry. I may do as you suggest - especially since it doubles yet again over the S7 in terms of built-in memory.

    My S6 Active took another fall.
    Landed on one corner. Bounced to fall on a different corner and finally ended up face down on concrete. Unbelievably the screen looks no worse than it did. How about that?

    Since I'm just coming off of my S4 Active, like you, you will appreciate the new features:

    Higher resolution rear camera (12 megapixel) - currently rated as the best cell phone camera by a number of reviewers
    Higher resolution front camera ( 8 megapixel) - much better for selfies and video calls
    Quckcharge 3.0 - the ability to charge your phone extremely fast. Apple still doesn't have anything near this technology
    Wireless charging - extremely convenient. Wireless charging has been around since the S6. Apple still doesn't have wireless charging up to now.

    And of course, it can use the Samsung Gear Virtual Reality headset.

    I had the Samsung Galaxy S4 Active and we got our son the S6 Active. It's pretty durable alright.
