learn me on smartphones fast

Time is a factor here boys;

old phone (blackberry priv) took a dump today after 3ish years. I liked the phone but dont want to replace it with new old stock. recommend me something that i can hopefully have in my hand by saturday morning (or readily available at bestbuy, walmart, att)

needs:
not an iphone
roughly 5" by 3" phone. dont want anything huge
a "rugged" model would be a plus
not really afraid of off brands or chinese devices but if i can stay with a known name brand that'd be great
would really like to stay under $300

I'd love to go without but i need this for work and porn. I can limp along what i have but it's a lost cause at this point and i'd like something reliable before i head out for the weekend. I'll read the older threads in the meantime but that info gets dated real fast it seems

Check out swappa.com for used (and some NIB) phones.

I just got a Samsung S8 Active virtually unused for $360. Upgrading from an S5 Active, I'm happy with it except for the built-in battery. The flagship Samsungs are, imho, as close as you'll get to the polish of an iphone.

Check this for side-by-side spec comparisons. https://m.gsmarena.com/compare.php3

Before the S5 I had an iPhone (2014). I am so done with their walled garden bullshit. I plug my Android into a computer, it's like a thumbdrive- drag/drop whatever content I like. The Apple requires iTunes for the slightest thing.

If you're buying one off clist, be sure to run the IMEI (like a VIN for phones) through an online checker. They can be blacklisted (reported stolen), and will never work again. Swappa has one, or there are many other sites.

I've used PureTalk (not StraightTalk!) service for 5+ years, and they're great. AT&T reseller. Their prices go down regularly, and the data included gets faster/bigger. Georgia-based customer service.

Same operation system as the Priv, so you hardly have to learn a thing.

Prices on galaxy 8+ have come down a helluva lot. I'm very happy with the phone.

Nokia 6.1 or 7.1

Some of the most robust phones made.

Uses Android one program, so it is pure unmolested Android software - closest thing to getting a google Pixel phone without the price, and is guaranteed software and security updates regularly for two years.

Available at Best Buy or Amazon.

Just like a used car. Gotta know what they're worth, and check them out. I haven't had a new phone since an LG flip in 2002. This S8 was absolutely pristine, with lots of pics. I ran the IMEI, and it was only a few months old.

Anyway, glad you found something local.

Yeah, that does make it tough. Sounds like BestBuy may be a winner.

The Huawei Mate SE is a great phone for the $. Stick it in a slim case so it's not so slippery.

64g version is $150 with activation on Google fi (no contract) currently. So far so good there for me, but I've only had mine a week.

OP, do you need this to work with a particular carrier? A lot of smart phones will be limited there.

Get a samsung, then a nice otterbox. I like the symmetry series. Dropped my S9 various times with it and it held up. The S8 is a bit more fragile.

A phone is a phone is a phone these days.

I'll take a look at the x4 today when I'm at the store. Looks pretty comparable to the Nokia's but a little tougher
