Had a galaxy S 4 which I loved, but it had a flaw that caused a SIM card error to pop up constantly. Did a lot of research before buying a Samsung J7 2016 model. 5.5 inch screen. Really great phone and camera. I got the 16 g because I don't download music and didn't need xtra memory. Put a 32g sd card in it. Paid $210. for it on Ebay new. Came with a dual SIM card slot, didnt need it, but no big deal.

Yes, the iPhone is elegant and has a good quality camera, some of it's specs still annoy me.

Nevertheless, everyone has their own taste

Idk why, but the newer phones seem a tad more better to me. As I said, I already had a samsung s5, and while it was a good phone it had it's down sides @BlindHorseEnthusiast4582 .

Be sure it's an option with your carrier. For instance, the only reliable coverage in our area is Verizon, who will not support that phone.

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.
Earbuds? Adapters? I use normal stuff as far as that goes. So I'm not sure what you mean there.

Yeah, the charger is annoying because you usually end up having to buy a new one with a new phone, but really the charger is the only thing (and we have plenty "knock off" chargers around the house that work just fine).

I don't use iTunes for anything. I use Amazon Music.

I have an Amazon Prime membership and get music for free on Amazon Music, on my phone. I don't use iTunes at all.
