What phone do you carry /out/ ?

My old B200 is still going strong but it's getting harder to find batteries. Pre-emptively looking for something to replace it.

Just looking for something sturdy and compact, really.

Samsung Convoy 3 on a $10 per 120 day Red Pocket Mobile Plan (Verizon reseller). They're about $15-20 on eBay for one in like new condition. The Convoy 4 looks nice and is more water resistant, but it's bulkier.

Good enough for emergencies, durable, water resistant, and a decent camera for a flip phone.

No phone. NZ, there’s no reception once you’re out of town.

My iphone, but I keep it off and tucked away unless I want to use it as a camera. Not like there is a cell signal out there anyway. I have the Garmin 66i if i ever need to contact anyone, which is pretty much never but at least i get a GPS out of it.

Its a refresh of original atom that's slightly bigger.
Only downsides are the mediatek internals that have their own fast charge protocol that's not compatible with QC3 powerbanks. And the fact you will never get updates since its a chineses phone, but its ~$300, small and rugged. Check if it supports the lte bands in your country.

Do you have experience with this or the smaller Atom? It looks neat, especially the XL, but the sealed battery and being Chinkshit is a bit concerning. I've had very poor experiences with Chinese software, not to mention the spying, lack of updates, inability to root, refusal to honor warranties, and useless customer support.
>>
>>1813530
No i don't. I do own another mediatek chink phone, that i serviced recently. Sealed battery is not an issue if you heat the back cover properly with a hairdrier (talking in general here and not about the atom). In my experience the mediatek phones usually have unlocked bootloader so rooting them is not an issue too. As for other stuff you mentioned, yep its shit on all those counts. I was considering going for the L model without the dmr memery but having fixed my current phone i no longer need new one. If i did i would probably do it because of the size. There are no small from factor smartphones that i'm aware of.
