I love my Samsung S8. I have had it 18 months. It is in an Otterbox, and it has survived all previous drops. Last night, it slipped out my hand and landed screen down on the ceramic tile. When I picked it up… Cracked glass… Uggg…
The S8 was the most expensive phone I’ve ever bought - The model had already been out 1 year by the time I got it, so I paid $450 + tax, and paid it off with zero interest at $50 per month. I love the phone… Nicest phone I’ve ever had. I like the Samsung Health app that tracks my walking everyday. Even has a built in O2 meter.
It does still work, but I have to have a phone for work, and I do a LOT of driving. If the glass starts to flake off later, or if it totally breaks on the next drop, I can’t afford that. I’ve already been stuck in the middle of no where with a flat tire a couple of times in the past 12 months…
So, last night, I ordered another phone on the Best Buy website. I will have it shipped to me, and I should have it on Monday.
Despite it being a bit older, I ordered a Samsung S9. One, it’s a little cheaper. But, I don’t like the screen finger print reader on the S10s, and the S20s no longer have a headphone jack. I walk several miles a day and listen to my phone. I like wired headphones.
The S9 can still upgrade to the newest Android - so, that’s not too bad. After the S9, I guess I’ll have to go with something besides Samsung, because of the loss of the headphone jack.
But, this whole thing sucks. I did not plan having to pay for another phone
