I am in need of a new Technopoly/Chinese pocket surveillance mobile device. Since I am obligated by work to own a pocket surveillance device, and I have been an iPhone user for a while now and all my stuff is there, does anyone have a recommendation in the “11” range of those devices? Any bad experiences with them? Looking to spend not more than $500 for a used one (looking on Swappa.com).

    I'm not really a fan of phones that don't become servers when their racing years are behind them.

    Forgive me if I misread, but if you have to get a device for work, work has to pay for it.

    @Jilano I am a freelancer. But I need said device to get business done and to manage cloud services on the go. I am my boss that is paying for it. :)

    You don't want a surveilling phone, but looking at your profile you seem to be all into social media? That doesn't add up in my head.

    @ScriptCoded Well, each one of us has a career that, for better or worse, ended up being not what we thought it would be when we began it. Each one of us has a different perspective now than we did when we started on that path. At the time I took that kind of work and made it my career, the issues we're facing now were abstract conspiracy-level conjecture. Hindsight is always 20/20 (ha!). So, now that I'm here and I earn my daily bread from it, I have a new project of figuring out how to extricate myself from it. I can't do so in a day, or even a year. Gradually I will evolve my career to something that doesn't involve so much social media management for clients and, if I'm lucky, not so much dependence on mobile devices. But, for now, I have to live in the world my 1996-2020 self created until I figure out a way to escape it. Current phone is reaching end of support. Just need a new one to help me get to the next step. Preferably not new to avoid feeding China.

    Any recommendations?

    Is the difference between models under the same generation really so great as to prompt a thread asking for people to recommend a specific variant?

    Nokia or motorola. Really close to vanilla android and cheap.

    Can't you get a dumb-phone?

    @iiii Was thinking about that, but gonna have to wait until further down the road, once I'm more extricated from The Matrix.

    Im still using a ZTE Axon 7 from 2016. Solid phone that will probably last some more years. You can pick one up for around 200$ from ebay since its not sold anymore.
