    I am currently using a Samsung Galaxy which has 4 GB usable for app use and a battery that I can charge and also have a spare backup battery ready if I am out somewhere. I like that arrangement but want more storage. I plan to purchase a phone and use it on the Straight Talk network where you can bring your own phone.

    Does anyone have a suggestion for a low cost phone that meets these requirements? I don't want or need the latest and greatest phone. I have liked the Galaxy series so far.

    Thanks for any suggestions.

    I am currently using a Galaxy "Ace style" which is sold by Straight Talk. It has 8 Gb but the memory is divided with 4 Gb for operating system and 4 Gb for an emulated SD card. My added SD card can store only some apps but not all under Android 4.3.

    As a new user, where is the "reply" button or how do I reply to a question?

    Welcome to the forums. I'm looking on straight talks site now. Which Galaxy do you have now? Do you have a price limit?

    My page refreshed and now the reply button appeared. Sorry. I would like to keep my price about $200 or lower if possible. Screen size and camera resolution not an issue. See addendum to question for part of answer.

    I would then say the S3. On the page for straight talk I see it's a little less than $200, and has everything you would like, plus a bump in storage. Android will take a larger amount in this phone, but should leave you with about 6-8 GB left. I used to have this phone and it was a really good device.

    This typically happens when replies have been added.

    S3, S4 or Note 4 (you'll become addicted to the pen). The Note 4 is around $200 used (and in good condition), but it's a $700 phone.

    The S3 sounds exactly what I'm looking for. And even better that I can get it from Straight Talk and move my account over more easily.
