Hello, I have a LG Phoenix 4 and it's not a pleasurable experience. It's only 6 months old and it's already malfunctioning. I can't download apps from google play and it randomly text people when the phone is idle. I'm buying a phone every 6 months and I think that's mainly due to the fact that these phones are cheap, but I'm wondering if the expensive phones are any better. I'm looking at getting a Galaxy S8 or an S9, but can't get over the price. Do the expensive phones work any better than the cheap ones?
