    My HTC One X+ is breaking down. The front-side camera has broken, and the GPS tends to glitch out a lot.
    Can somebody recommend a new one? I'm looking at the Samsung Galaxy S9. I know the S10 is out, but I can't confirm if I can use an FM radio with that, plus I don't see anything the S10 has that the S9 doesn't have that I'd care bout, and the S9, being last year's model is cheaper.
    Looking around, it seems the key sticking point is the FM tuner and storage. I've heard of NextRadioApp and seen that there is a list of supported devices here, but the S10 is absent:

    I tend to have a lot of stuff stored on my phone, so I need something with at least 64gb of storage that I can connect to a computer and load like a USB drive.

    Other key features are:

    FM Radio (NOT an internet radio. One that works without an internet connection)
    64+GB storage
    GPS Navigation
    Can copy files from the computer with a USB cable like a flash drive
    Can use Cool Reader (some phones need Cool Reader GL
    Can play MP3s
    Can play video files
    Can use a calendar like Jorte that can sync to Google
    Can read BOTH Comcast and Gmail e-mail accounts (not just config one or the other).
    Can use an app to turn the flash on as an emergency flashlight
    Can be used as a notepad
    Can be used as a calculator for base conversions and making fractions

    Can sync address books with Thunderbird (I use Google Contacts) automatically
    Costs under $600, preferably under $400. I probably won't consider anything more expensive than the Samsung Galaxy S9.

    Any suggestions? If the phone has less storage but can use a microSD card for MP3s, fanfics or e-books, and movies, include the cost of the microSD card in the cost calculations.

    I use the FM radio on my HTC One X+ a lot to get music without wasting bandwidth. I also need something around the same size so it can fit in my pocket comfortably, I can't have anything smaller because I already find the screen a bit on the small side, but I can't get one of those big Galaxies either because it won't fit in my pocket.
    I tend to have a lot of stuff stored on my phone, so I need something with at least 64gb of storage that I can connect to a computer and load like a USB drive.
    Also it seems some phones lack a headphone jack, vital for the FM radio.

    Finally, I'm using Consumer Cellular, which also takes AT&T compatible phones. That might be significant.

    S9 is a good phone but s10 will get updates longer and security.
