my old ass htc one is barely holding charge for more than 6 hours of light use and has weird freezes and crashes more and more often, so i really need to replace it.

my phone carrier doesn't do contracts, so i don't get subsidized prices or free upgrades

shopping for some mid-tier phones (~$400-$500), but even those are a lot of money to drop all at once for me

any little bit helps

phone gripe 

phone died within 4 hours coming off of a full overnight charge yesterday. all i did with it yesterday was use google authenticator ONCE and it was idle with the screen off the rest of the time :angry_laugh:

weirdly, today it's doing a little better but i can't rely on it to perform consistently anymore and it sucks

i've secured enough money to cover the base cost of the phone. any additional help will cover the tax (almost $30 by itself) and also go toward buying a case and screen protector (another ~$20 or so)

thank you everyone who has pitched in! i really appreciate it. this is an overdue upgrade for me
