    Please suggest an economical Android smartphone with good call qualtiy

    In a pinch I recently purchased an Alcatel 5044R (a.k.a. idealEXCITE) and it's OK, but I'm having a hard time hearing callers. OK, at age 63 my hearing isn't what it used to be, but still it seems that with the volume up all the way I should be able to hear better. I have a good signal, 3 or 4 bars, so that's not the problem.

    I will eventually replace this Alcatel since it was something of a stopgap measure, and I would like to get a phone with clear, loud voice quality. I don't watch videos on my phone or do anything requiring lots of memory and processor speed. Mainly I just talk and text and use a couple simple apps.

    I'd like to keep it under $100 and used or refurbished is OK. Any suggestions?
    My smartphone is a lot smarter than I am.

    Same boat.

    Whether Android or iPhone. You need a cell phone with the speaker (speakerphone) on front or side.

    I use the speaker phone all of the time.

    My Samsung has the speakerphone on side. Not to be confused with the normal speaker on front. There are two speakers on all (most) phones.

    My Moto G6 is the loudest phone I have ever had - on ear or speakerphone.
