    Some Background:
    I'm using an iPhone 6 but its battery is draining quickly. I'm currently repairing it but don't have much faith as it could be very costly. Also, I have an Xperia ZR with a broken screen. Its been 2 years since I have used that mobile and was planning to replace its touchscreen. When I turned it on now, it have a bootloop. I would try to recover it but I'm wondering how capable it is now with its aging Snapdragon S4 pro processor.

    So, shall I go ahead and get a budget-ish phone ?

    Also, should I wait till iPhone 7S gets announced which can make the price of iPhone 6S dip ?
    (I love iPhone 6S ! Its still a great piece of kit IMO)

    Update to iOS 11.3 check the battery health and if it is below 80, then get it changed for a coat of flat 2k

    It will serve you 2 more years atleast. My iPhone 6 shows battery health of 94% after 2 years of usage n last a whole day

    I'm currently using the lenovo Z2 plus, it is FANTASTIC for the price that I got, 7999rs refurbished on Amazon. Has full Dev support with hdr+ and portrait mode camera, oreo with treble and more. Plus it has a nice large 3500mah battery, great 5" screen, snapdragon 820 which gets a bit hot if left unlocked but I used kernel aduitor and enabled thermal throttling, it is now nice and cool while giving me 150k on antutu 7. Cannot recommend it enough.

    It's not earth shatteringly better, but the Google HDR+ and portrait mode camera app works which I'd say puts it on par with rn4 with better features like Portrait mode etc. It also does 120fps slow motion video and actual 60fps full HD video even in low light which the redmi for some reason can't do.
