$200~ android vs iP6s?

I've been looking at getting a new phone. My main problem is that my iPhone 6s has 16gb storage which turns into 14 and then maybe 12 or something... It's nothing and I am fighting for room. I've glanced at some Galaxy A20's and some Xiaomi phones. They look nice, but are they any good? I want to use my phone as a mp3 player (3.5mm HFJ) and camera. It will possibly be in a otterbox. Also some apps like Duolingo, Wyze, Infinite*Language, Write It!, Waze gps. Do you think there are any phones in the $200-$300 price range, that would compare/beat an iPhone 6s?

I also wonder how easy it would be to switch phones. I have Atnt and don't know if I would have to go to the store to switch anything over and if it would cost anything.

That's quite big, even bigger with a case on it. I would like to stay new and more of the side of a Galaxy S8~ or iphone6~. I still have my note 2, but it's just so slow... It is also very big.

Google Pixel 3a or Google Pixel 3a XL.

3a is in budget but 3a XL is a bit over.

3a and 3a XL has a headphone jack, normal 3 doesn't. 3a and 3a XL doesn't have wireless charging, 3 does.

The Pixel 3a is not a great value compared to some of the deals that I've been seeing lately. You can get a full bore Snapgradon 855 powered phone for around $200 on special these days.

Don't get the Samsung A20. It's not going to be as strong of a performer as your iPhone 6S. If you are interesting in trying it, there is a way to activate your iPhone's internal storage cleaner to free up some space.

I bought a carrier unlocked LG G7 for $120 last month. If you watch Slickdeals.net you can find some great deals on cell phones.

Also, Pook I got my Nexus 6P settlement check in the mail today. If you applied for the settlement you should be getting yours soon. Thinking about making a thread for it to give people a heads up.

sorry, I was just going on what you asked, you had no constraints on size.

I started looking at G7 ThinQ... I found some on ebay for $125 used. Supposedly works on my network (ATnT) But read a review about the G7's having problems. Need to do more research if I'm going to buy used. The G7 ThinQ is a bit bigger than my iPhone. I do shop on amazon a lot.

Yep the G7 has a large screen but the body is smaller. It has a 6 inch screen but is significantly smaller to hold than my 5.7 inch Nexus 6P.

No problems here to speak of. I'm typing this at the moment from my G7. Works great.

They are truly unlocked for any carrier. I have mine on T-Mobile and I talked my ex gf into buying one that she has on AT&T. So far so good.
