Today my Samsung S7 had a fall from around 4m up and landed face down.  Completely damaging the glass and the display screen. From a quick  search I found out that a replacement fix will cost around 140 euros,  but I'll check on that tomorrow morning.

So I'm thinking that instead of going for the replacement to invest on a  low budget phone that can run the DJI Go 4 app without issues, and wait  for the Black Friday deals to get a proper phone.

So far the best I could find at my budget (below 200 euros) is the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5. Any suggestions?

I use the Xiaomi Max2, a 6.4 inch screen. Works great!

I've checked that out thoroughly the last couple of days. I've decided to go down the wise way. I'll fix the screen on the S7 for now and wait for any good Black Friday deals to get a better phone at a decent price.

It's going to cost 150 euros for screen replacement and battery change, so better play it safe since it worked perfectly with the app. I'll just pass it to the wife afterwards

-''Hey honey, I decided to give you my S7''
-''Really? What are you going to use with your drone?''
-''I found a chinese phone with a larger screen''
-''Which one?''
-''It's called OnePlus 6T. You wouldn't know it. It's Chinese''

Anyway, thanks for helping out guys.
