Default Looking For A New Cell Phone ..

At the minutw I'm using an old LG running Androis 6.0 ..

I have Zero knowlege of cell phones & curious too ask a few questions.

My screen has died on my 5 year old LG Leon LTE ..

I'm curious to know if Android 6.0 is the latest Ver: & if I buy a new phone if it can be upgraded if I buy a phone with an older OS..

I was thinking about just going to the local supermarket when I'm paid but also is the NFC chip in this phone I'm using widely available accross different models. I'd like toum use it but never have.

When installing a Web Browser like FF can I add Add-Ons too FF for Android.

The phone will have to support inbuilt VPN preferably OpenVPN.

What models do you gyes reccomend & should I take celular phone security seriously.

If I'm logged in to my VPN App what DATA is taken from a session even with the VPN Active. Should I use the built in Chrome or FF ..

Is their any personal information leaked when say browsing online despite the VPN Active.

I have checked IPLeak.net & it shows up my VPN IP Address but what about I.P Ver: 6 leaks ..

Is it possible to somw how dissanle features in FF or Chrome like you do on the Desktop Ver: such as RTC .. If so how do I do it ..

What do you Guys think.

Any brands inparticular. What should I pay. What OS should I use. Should I use FF or Chrome & what security measures should I take.

I'm not on about insurance or anything like that but more OS Security & how do I protect my DATA with Add-Ons ETC:
