    Samsung GT E1200. On the grounds that it will take a lot of abuse and is cheap enough not to cry about too much IF it breaks. But still need separate smartphone/camera if you need internet or photos or notes, so wouldn't suit you.

    Ok,thanks for ur replies.
    Story is I had an iPhone 5c after a number of iPhones. Had problem with 5c, and tried to google fix it,stupidly without backing up what was on it.
    I had 764 phone numbers+ photos all lost.
    Only good thing my old iPhone 4 had 430 numbers on it.
    Changed to Samsung , but not happy with it.

    I can't use anything else other than Apple. iPhone and iPad for me.
    Samsung phones have impressive screens etc, but they don't seem logical to my brain and I get frustrated when trying to use them.

    Yes, you got it right about the age thing, I can't be bothered with Samsung phones. The Apple phones are more straightforward IMO.
    Another thing that completely puts me off Samsung phones is, as Townfanjon said, they can be unreliable and breakdown.

    Had Samsung phones for loong time without a problem, never had one crash, sync to laptop and it's all saved anyway.

    Last 3 or 4 phones have been Samsung. Due for a new one next month and it will be another Samsung.

    My true work phone is an old jcb phone. Coming up 7 years old.
