    What's the cheapest phone I can get that meets the following criteria?

    1. Jellybean or higher
    2. 8 MP or higher camera
    3. 64 GB microSD card slot (not just 32 GB)
    4. Not too cheap quality that will break on me quickly

    thanks.

    You are probably going to have to look at older Samsung flagships. So the S3, or Note 2 to keep the cost down. However, those devices are at the end of their support, so KitKat is probably the last official update they will see.

    I would second those recommendation. Solid devices. There are cheaper options, though beware that you are probably sacrificing substantial battery life and performance

    Be aware that Googles latest Android updates have severely crippled the use of SD cards. You may want to research this situation further before using that as your sole criteria.

    If you want a new device, consider the s4 for $250.

    Some limitations, but still usable. I can copy files to sd, watch video, browse pictures, and listen to music from sd.

    And they did officially bring back support for SD cards in the OS. JB was not supported at all.

    Thanks guys.

    Nuts. The website won't accept any of my credit cards for some reason. Says my billing address is wrong even though it's right. Think it may actually be sold out or something. Oh well, thanks anyway. It would have been a great deal.

    Except with the Note 2. It has amazing battery life.

    Don't buy a cheap phone. Save up and buy the best phone you can. You'll regret buying the cheap phone later.

    Not sure if you found something yet, but came across this post looking for something else.

    I have 2 of these, and I find them great. I rarely buy minutes, mostly use for music and media, and if I am near wifi, which is like most of the time, I use Text+ for phone calls. This little dude even comes with a 4gb micro sd card
