My old LG flip-top finally died.
It was not fancy at all by modern standards.
I need to get a "smart" phone for my new job.
I have no idea what the difference is between an iPhone, an Android, or anything else available.
Everything I have researched says that each is better than the other.
It's just about impossible to find a cheap old clam anymore and they are approaching the antiquated zone.
Who's got the most bang for the buck?

iphones are rubbish and not worth the ridiculous amount of money they're expecting for them... look into huawei phones, MUCH better phones, much better specs and overall probably the best phone i've ever owned.

A decent cheap smart phone is the Samsung S5 and it isn't a brick sized thing either. It'll do whatever the clam did and you can add a 128GB SD card for music or movies. The speakers aren't bad and it's waterproof as well. $135 on Amazon. I've got the S9 after having Samsungs, HTCs and Nokias and prefer it over all previous phones barring the legendary Nokia 3210. I don't like iTunes so won't have iPhones.
Stick to a major brand for a better class of snooper. With Samsungs, LGs and iPhones you'll only have the NSA and private companies storing everything you ever do. If you go for a cheap Chinese android, you'll have the NSA, private companies AND the Chinese storing your data!! I bought one off Amazon years back and it was found to be stuffed with enough malware to make the news.
ETA - have you noticed everyone always thinks their own phone "is the best?" Me included...
