In search for a new phone

Hey!
Since I've given up on my (now old) Samsung s5 NEO, I'm searching for a new phone. Sadly, I've watched too many reviews and read too much about MANY phones, so now I'm a bit puzzled about everything. The only thing I know for sure, is that Apple is a NO.
The main question is- can someone recommend a good phone from Samsung/Huawei/Any other good brand? The price can't be higher than 300euros.
The phone should have a good camera quality, and a lot of space for music.

Any reccomendation is appreciated!

I'm not sure about all the specific specs, but I love my Samsung Galaxy s7, I'd recommend a Galaxy to anybody. The camera is good enough and it's got quite a bit of storage :)

Don't judge someone's horse or skill because they don't compete or work with a trainer.

Sometimes they're the most in tune with each other.

I confess to mine falling into the toilet out of my jeans pocket last weekend. *dies*

Its fine, and that's with the back case cracked in multiple places thanks to Gina pitching a crow hopping fit and squirting it out of my back pocket onto the road a few months ago.

Its the best one I've had yet in terms of durability and quality of pictures though.

I couldn't get rid of the iPhones fast enough... an iPhone 4 is the last Apple product I ever owned, will never go back.

You couldn't run fast enough to give me another Android phone. My Samsung Galaxy is sitting in a box. I switched to an iPhone SE and love it. Would never go back. Right now it's almost in your price range.

I don't know how much it costs but the Huawei P10 is easy to use, good camera and I prefer it to my iPhone 6

Why is an iPhone a "no" to you?

I've had android phones before in the past and I'll never go back. My iPhone is so much more user friendly and easy to use.

It is not enough to know how to ride; one must know how to fall.

Mine's set up on payment plans so it's not too bad :) Also I wasn't sure how euros converted to dollars. Maybe an older galaxy like an s5?

See, I found it to be just the opposite. I got tired of having to have iTunes to do anything (that might have changed) and at the time, the iPhones were tiny compared to the S6s. I did have some trouble learning to navigate at first, but got the hang of it in about 15 minutes.

As a practical matter, its the chargers and earbuds, etc. All proprietary or you have to buy adapters, etc.

I use my Galaxy for everything from reading to banking.

I'd take a Galaxy over an iphone any day. Easier to use, better graphics, and the screen won't crack if you look at it wrong..... I've had an S6, S7 (got stolen) and replaced it with an S8.
