Looking for a good smartphone.

It's potion time!
Hello. I'm trying to get a hold of a good affordable smartphone. The one I have is a hand-me-down that's stuck with 8gb and 32-bit. Needless to say, this is a veeeeeeeery sucky smartphone to have if I want to download apps with larger file sizes. It doesn't help it doesn't have an option to transfer apps to the SD card.

So here's my ordeal:

Phone must cost between $0 to $100.

I want a phone that has 32gb (64gb preferred) of internal memory.

If it can transfer apps to use from the SD card, that would be a huuuuuuuuuuge plus.

Must be 64-bit, because 32-bit is slowly getting phased out.

Must be an unlocked phone or part of T-Mobile since it's my service.

Anyone has any good choices? I tried to look that up on Amazon but my searches yielded some weird picks. Maybe someone here has a good recommendation?

You might have to wait on that. I haven't found any 64 bit, 32 GB phones that are in that price range that are good brands. I want that kind of phone myself, but they seem to be around $200. This is via Walmart's Straight Talk brand.

Found a 16 GB LG phone through them that's around $40 that I'm going with for now. Sadly it is 32 bit, but it's ok.

If the phone can use the SD card to store all apps, I'm fine if it's 32gb.

Yea the 16 GB phone can use SD cards. My 8 GB one uses one too. I go with a 32 GB Sandisk card. Only issue I've run into are any apps that don't move over to the card.

Here's a 32 GB one. Was looking into it too, but I'm not sure if it's as stable as the 16 GB one is.

Unfortunately, those won't let me use my T-Mobile service because they're Straight-Talk.

However, I ultimately decided to get a BLU Studio Mini phone.

It's half the internal memory I wanted, but it's pretty affordable, does accept T-Mobile, is 64-bit (I checked), and pretty much a massive upgrade of my Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime phone.

I'll finally see if Pokemon Masters is good.

Ah.

Well it's good to see that you were able to find a phone.

Galaxy Note 8. I do not consider any smartphone brand to be the best, but Samsung's Galaxy S series contains some very solid all-around phones
