Already discounting.

I highly recommend the "delay start" feature. My old dishwasher had it and I loved it. Could set it after the dinner clean-up for, say, Midnight, but if I decided to raid the freezer for ice cream, I could still load the bowl in and not have a dirty bowl in the morning ('cause dishwasher already run and done), or, worse, forget to run the dishwasher after loading the bowl and catch hell in the morning.

As you might guess, my current dishwasher does not have the "delay start" feature.
We just wash the dishes sometime in the evening, and if there's a late bowl of ice-cream, the dirty bowl can sit in the sink overnight. Heck, I have trouble getting my husband to put the dirty dishes in the dishwasher when it's NOT full of clean dishes.

I found out that they will activate each phone so it will be unboxed.


What is the best way to flip a brand new iphone Xr to get as close to retail as possible given a new, never used, but activated-one-time-only-open-box phone?

Can I get $800 for said brand new iphone?

Yep I bought an LG v35 (2018 model year phone with the latest snapdragon processor, etc) for $370 used.

Beats the pants off paying $900.

I need a new Android phone. I had an HTC One Mini as my first smartphone and have had an LG K10 for 2 years now. It's getting really slow and the battery lasts about 3/4 a day.

Any suggestions on what to get next? I'd love to keep it in the $200 range, but could probably convince myself to go into the $300s if I needed to.

I've had a hard time trying to shop for phones because I honestly can't tell the difference between phones when I research online. And all of the comparison articles I read are for high end phones that are more money then I want to spend.

Suggestions? Should I ask this in a different thread?

I have the Moto X4. It was $400, but the price has dropped to $300. It's not as nice as the flagships -- for instance, the camera isn't as good as the camera on my last phone. But the battery lasts a long time, it has the latest Android OS, and it lets me use an external memory chip and a headphone jack.

It comes in two versions, one integrated with Amazon, and the other "pure android" running Google Fi, which is Google's cell phone service. If t-mobile or Spring have decent coverage in your area, Google Fi is awesome. It's reasonably priced and will jump onto wifi to save your data costs whenever feasible. (It's also incredibly awesome if you travel overseas.)

Honestly, there are lots of decent non-flagship phones right now, and you have a lot of options. Check out gsmarena for reviews/details/comparisons of non-flagship and less-popular phones.

Start by googling for "Best phones under $X", or shop online at your cell carrier's site to see what's out there in your price range.

Then look for reviews of specific phones on YouTube. People do video reviews on cheap obscure phones as well as flagship models.

I've been buying Moto G's for a while and they've been really good. For quite a few years they've tended to top the list of best-phone-for-$200. I'm not on the latest though - I've got a G5+ right now - and can't comment on the G6.
