    Smartphone upgrade from GS4

    My aunt has a Samsung Galaxy S4. The battery life has really gone down hill so I got her a replacement battery. Now the phone gets really hot and I can't figure out why. There's no apps in the background or anything taking up significant resources. However, I think it's time for a new phone and she agrees. What phone do you guys recommend? Go to a Galaxy S7 or a OnePlus 3? LG G4?

    I'm looking for the Best deal. But also a phone that will be reliable, good battery life, easy to use, and a good camera. She has T-Mobile.

    What's the budget, and does she expect to be on an EIP (payment plan)?

    The Zmax Pro should be released soon. It will cost 1/4 to 1/3 of the S7.

    Depends on budget.

    cheap: LG G-Stylo -> ridiculous battery life. with light use, I could get close to 4 days of use in 1 charge (it has 3000mah battery on 720p screen) ok camera

    Best: s7 Edge -> good battery life (I can easily get 7hr SOT), excellent camera, good size (5.5", but not as bulky), but don't know about reliability (My wife's broke and the replacement has issues with micro SD card) and it is very expensive (BOGO was excellent deal, should have taken it then) Also, it is water proof so accidental drop into water should be ok as well.

    S7 Edge for sure. I'm getting close to 11 hours for SOT while on TMO. I went through FOUR LG G4's due to their infamous bootloop issue, and will probably never buy another LG product again.
