Default Good cheap Android phone

Given worst experience of my life with the iPhones 6 and 6S, I am looking for a cheap solution. Something that can tide me over until my son gets a bit bigger.

I have thus far, burnt through the following.

iPhone 6S+ that I trashed in the bin.
iPhone 6 that I trashed in the bin.
Wife's iPhone 6 that I got virtually re-made. Screens changed about 4-5 times.
Another iPhone 6S that is a backup for which I have had screen replaced 4 times.
My iPhone 6S that I have had the screen replaced recently for the 7th time.

I figure, I could have bought a cheap android disposable phone for 60-70 bucks and threw it everytime it broke and still had some cash left over.

So looking for a cheap replacement. Let me know.

What the hell are you doing to your phones that you're burning through them so quickly? Just because they advertise the fact that their screens have gorilla glass or whatever, doesn't mean you have to keep using them as a cup every time you play cricket. And you have to learn to bat better.

If you can't take care of your things to THAT extent, no different phone or otterbox case is going to help you. Pay attention and stop treating **** that you spend ~$700 on like it's garbage.

Its KAC

$700 to him is equivalent to $7 to the rest of us.

To this day I don't think theres a phone ive held in my hand that has any sort of sturdiness that matches the bricklike properties of my Nokia Lumia 930. (which it got shat on for being a thick and heavy phone with a real metal/aluminum frame). I don't even have a case on mine.

Everything else feels flimsy in comparison since being thin and made of plastic seems to be the way phones are made nowadays.

pretty much same here.. Lumia 1020.. it's a "yellow" brick" but it has seen drops from about 12 feet, down a flight of stairs, got accidently run over in the driveway,, and besides a few scratches.. still keeps on ticking.

For a cheap/disposable Andriod, cheapest to more expensive may be a Moto E or Moto G or Moto Force (impact resistant). Best quality/built non-Windows (Lumia) phone I've seen to date would prob be Blackberry Priv.

Oneplus are relativly cheap and great android phones but im sure they aren't sturdier than iphones at all. You will probably still need a strong case (of which I know none).

You can buy used Sony Xperia Z3s on Ebay for only about $130. I'm pretty happy with mine. It seems like a solid phone, and battery life is phenomenal.

Most of the mainstream phones are pretty fragile. Especially when it comes to drops. You really need to put em in a case.

simple Spigen case on my S7e, has been dropped I can't remember how many times and not a scratch. Get anything with a rubber layer and lip for the screen. It doesn't need to be a tank.

Yup Spigen, Ringke, Verus(now VRS) etc etc are usually more than enough. You only really need an Otterbox or Lifeproof case if your phone is going to get exposed to allot of potential hits.(Construction work, camping etc)

I think my problem maybe that I have been using hard cases. Maybe will go for some softer ones that toddlers use. Anyways, on that subject, we got a small toddler android tab for our kid and he threw it down the stairs. 100 bucks down the drain. Not sure if I want to pay 50 to repair it .

Yeah, the amount of breakage of these stupid items in my house has gone out of hand lol.

Oh also, I never mentioned the iPhone 5 that my wife broke, then got remade, then maid washed it, so remade again, and now my son destroyed it whilst playing in school.

Why does your son have an iphone 5 at school? Why are you letting him play with electronics when he is clearly destructive? You don't need a case, you need to simply stop letting your child play with expensive electronics when he just throws **** all over the place.

I would have got my ass slapped if I ever did something like that ..

Accidents happen. I am not going to treat a 2.5 year old in any wrong way even if he breaks everything in the house.

As for the elder son, he is now without a phone. Will teach him a lesson until I get him another in a year from now.

Finally, most of the above were accidents. My little one doesn't just go around throwing phones on the ground. That happened maybe 2-3 times when he got mad at something or was hungry etc. Also, not giving electronics to kids in this day and age means me not using electronics in front of them. Which is frankly not possible and trust me I have tried (e.g., I don't touch my phone until kids are asleep when I come home etc.).

I actually quite like the look of the Midnight colored Nextbit Robin, it's got great specs and comes with an interesting 100GB cloud storage, that acts as an internal storage.

Currently on sale:

The Robin isn't a bad phone per se, but no one ever has heard of it (over here). Hardware wise it's well.... kinda mediocre... but not terrible.
