Suggest a new smartphone
My Galaxy Note 1 is now 5.5-6 years old, and its starting to show, badly. Would appreciate recommendations for replacement phones. I don't need the really large form factor as I now have a 2-in-1 laptop/tablet thingy to read PDFs on. Needs to be unlocked and ideally less than a grand. My partner got a Motorola Play thingy that is really awesome, but I would like something a little more current, perhaps an S6 or S7 Edge. Really like what I am seeing about the Pixel.

subscribing to this one.  I am probably going to be in the market pretty soon.

My daughter just got a pixel for less than a grand and tells me how awesome it is almost every time I talk to her.

I have no idea what constitutes awesome to her but I will say the pictures it takes are stunning.

Eta: she's had it about 2 months.

I'd go with the Pixel.  I'm still rocking the Nexus 5

Cool thanks for the suggestions. I was also considering a non Edge S6 or 7 because the savings it brings is pretty substantial.

Also will get it unlocked without all of the extra crap that is loaded on

Looking at the CNet reviews, am leaning towards non-Edge S7 since I get most of what I would from the Pixel for half the cost.

S7 should arrive this week.

Yes it took me this long to finally take action, but the Note only just started not working dependably

I really liked Civilisation Revolutions, which is pretty close to Civ2 in gameplay. There should br a couple of Final Fantasy ports as well. I hear good things about Clash of Clans and that sort of thing, but they never made a Windows version.
Why do I bother?

Just got a new galaxy s8 active.  So far so good. Way better screen resolution than I expected.
