    After 7 years It's time I buy a new phone and give goodbye kiss to my old friend 3G phone.

    Primary purpose is to get unlocked phone as most brand new phones nowadays are already country-unlocked from the beginning, and to receive as many as verification codes from G, FB, IG by rapidly switching sim cards via Roaming mode.

    I know there's 2x faster dual sim working phones but here's my secondary purpose

    Brand new phones always have some potential usability like, Voice AI, Fingerprint Recognition, UHD Cameras, etc..

    Plus I use real phone to test my website a lot

    No one in my family don't have iPhone so I am very inclined to iPhone this time :)

    So, here's some candidates I chose, would you kindly pick one for me?

    • Galaxy A5 (2017) - Monthly $8
    • Galaxy 5 - Monthly $11
    • Galaxy Note 5 - Monthly $14
    • iPhone SE - Monthly $18
    • iPhone 6s - Monthly $19
    • iPhone 6s Plus - Monthly $19
    • Galaxy 7 - Monthly $20
    • Galaxy 7 Edge - Monthly $21
    • iPhone 7 - Monthly $30
    • iPhone 7 (PRODUCT) RED - Monthly $36
    • iPhone 7 Plus - Monthly $37
    And.. lastly the
    • Galaxy S8 !!! - Price Unknown
    iPhone 7 seems bit expensive for me so I am looking for iPhone 6 ~ Galaxy 7
    Choose me one that will assist me faithfully during my IM journey of 3 years guys :D

    If I were you I'd buy a Huawei P9/ P9 lite/ Honor 8. They are cheaper and they can handle heavy tasks :)
    Galaxy 7 is good phone also, but its price is high.

    I have the Blackberry Passport. I love it, but they have a new one coming out this month or so that looks even better. The new one runs Android.

    Xiaomi provides really awesome budget phones but at speeds comparable to android and such. Should really check them out especially their Xiaomi MI line- very good reviews and runs on android.

    If your budget is higher i suggest the S7, only going to be cheaper with the S8 released. Don't bother getting the edge version as its pretty useless.

    If you have the option, I'd say go with iPhone. Maybe not the best "marketing phone" but it'll prevent you from getting roasted for having green bubbles

    I'd love to purchase the Galaxy S8+ (Once they become more readily available) but I just can't justify spending $700-$900 on a phone. The large 6.2" UHD display is an incredible amount of screen space which is great for doing some IM tasks such as sending emails and using Skype. However, I'm not sure if Samsung will be getting money from me for this phone (At least until the price comes down a bit).

    I won't say its useless but more of not worth the extra $$ compared to the S7, honestly the only thing it does is look cool. But if you are digging the extra tool bar and such on the edge screen, then go ahead :D

    I can honestly recommend one of the cheaper phones from china, I personally have an elephone from gearbeast which is a total beast, can't believe how good it is.

    Check out some of the specs for models from Elephone or as mentioned above makers like Huawei, they have some fantastic phones.

    My next phone which is for marketing mainly will be one of the 6.5 inch screen phones on there.

    Well I'm not sure how a phone would differ for you in your IM ventures :).
    I mean there isn't much you can't do on either iPhone / Android.

    I'm on iPhone here and 100% satisfied by it. That being said, the recipes on IFTT are more limited than an Android.

    I have the S7 Edge. The Edge is a bit longer (like 0.4 inches), has a bigger screen, and has a slightly better battery than the regular regular S7. However, I don't really like the Edge because when I put the phone in landscape mode (to watch a video), even the slightest contact with the edge of the phone will interrupt the video.

    All of the phones these days are basically the same. It's not like it was back in 2009 when people weren't as aware of Android and features such as multi-touch didn't exist. I remember when the Nexus One came out and had those interactive backgrounds; that was a nice new feature nobody had seen before. Now, it's just "bigger battery, bigger screen, fewer buttons". Sure, the VR integration and fingerprint recognition are fun features, but they're novelties at best.

    Not only the edge, I'm currently using the non edge S7 and man the screen is really hyper sensitive. Even when scrolling down chrome and such the slightest contact made by my palm would disturb it.

    Based on your list, it's a toss up between the iPhone 7 and the Galaxy 7
    Any device above 2 GB of RAM is my recommendation if its a droid
