Until about a year ago, I was happy with my trusty old S3. 720p felt good enough @4.8", which also felt big enough. Speed still felt fine (not a gamer). Camera was OK for a portable (I prefer a real camera anyways). I say we hit the smartphone sweet spot years ago. Carwise, the Galaxy S3 is the original '64 Porsche 911, it improving on the iconic Porsche 356 (iPhone 1). The new iPhone/S8 would be the 2017 911, with the '64 original still showing it's influence, even now. These days, I really like Motorola phones. Bought 4 in the last year. (G (2nd), X Pure, Z Play) Feel solid, they run pure android like Nexus and have fantastic battery life. The Z Play has Epic battery life (beats all those charted above) and lightning fast charging. Don't look past Motorola, especially in the $300-450 range.
