I have found something interesting with smart phones. Having the latest and greatest does not seem to justify the costs. And in Germany the contracts are very hard core. So, being able to buy a phone that covers the basics like texting, and watching youtube is enough for me. I personally do not need a "mega camera system". So I can say that a phone like this would be perfect. I hope this helps you.
I honestly did not expect this to work well, but, I was wrong, it works well. For starting out small plant projects, its seems okay.
