Thinking about a different cell phone with a limited budget. Maybe an android with a 5.5" screen and dual camera, mostly for facetime. What should we look for?

I thought Facetime was proprietary to Apple products.

Not my area of experience but I love my apple.


Most people buy cell phones according to the usefullness they require. if you require something simple and on a budget, you should avoid a major carrier and find a prepaid service. Android would be your best bet as apple is more expensive with less prepaid options.



Dunno, I deliberately won't have a mobile phone .


FaceTime is an Apple app. You can't use FaceTime on an Android or Windows phone. You can use Skype and maybe other programs but the other people will need to use the same. If FaceTime is your thing, then I'm afraid you're stuck with Apple.

Oh! On a learning curve here. Thanks for that info.


His is what I chose after some study: ASUS ZE553KL-S625-3G32G-BK ZenFone 3 Zoom 5.5" 3GB RAM, 32GB Storage LTE Unlocked Dual SIM Smartphone, Android Nougat 7.1 - Navy Black. Seems to be stable. I stay away from apple products just a hobby computer person apple does not make it easy for a hobbyists to build an apple from the CPU where as IBM compotables are just more parts accesable. Basically the same goes for android vs apple.

Forgot to mention I use net10 prepaid I do the 50$ a month plan have never ran out of data.
