I pay cash for my phones and then I keep them until they die. My monthly bill is high enough without adding a monthly payment to pay for the phone too.

Quality I can comment on is for older Samsumg Galaxy S's. I had an S3 that worked like a bullet until the screen broke last year due to a stupid move. It received calls normally with nothing on the screen so I guess only the screen was damaged. Fixing it will take ~$80 USD so I gave it away to an expat maybe it's cheaper to fix in their county. Now I'm still rocking an S5. The only problem is software support. Apps (important ones, I don't fool around with smartphones) started to not work due to outdated Android version. This sucks. Otherwise it's working like a charm even the camera is sharp with 1080p60 recording supported and with HDR. The flash is working too.

I am glad that year 2021 has seen some really good budget devices and the latest in the 5G segment is Redmi Note 11T with a Dimensity 810 processor. It has good camera quality as well.

Hello

I am looking to buy a new Android smartphone. As there are many smartphones in the market, I am just confused which one to get. My expectations are it should have the latest OS, good RAM and Processor and a great sound quality. Can anyone suggest the best phone for me?

HTC one has the best build quality I've ever seen (IMO, better than the iPhone 5)

HTC is still in business? I haven't seen anything from them in years. Just checked... they are still around but barely, and all of their newer phones are not for US carriers. I guess that's why I haven't seen anything from them.
