    Hi, my wife wants an unlocked phone to continue using her t-mobile pay as you go thing. Her current phone is crap, so basically anything will be an upgrade. She is basically all about pictures of our kids and Facebook. Anything else is an extra. Her current phone takes crap video and fuzzy pics, so camera is #1, screen is #2, and battery life is #3....everything else is a distant #4.

    Been looking all week...most have good reviews and horrible reviews.

    Looking at...

    Honor 6x
    Moto e4 plus
    Moto g
    Axon 7 mini
    Galaxy J5

    Etc...

    Trying to pick it up via bestbuy. I've looked at specs, reviews, etc...my head hurts. Help! Lol. Is there a clear winner for what I'm looking for?

    Bought my wife a moto G5 plus to replace her beloved Moto Droid Razer Maxx. She is very happy with it. On Android 7. You should be able to get a good deal before new model comes out.
    Good luck

    If you need a new Android phone, and you have just around $200 to spend, our top recommendation will go to Nokia 4.2.
    Over the last few years, Nokia has dominated the low-end and mid-range markets, and the 4.2 is the best overall value you can get in that price range.
