I have a Motorola Droid 2 that I was using just for Wigle (no cell service), but lately it won't get a GPS lock. Are there any recommendations for low cost Android phones that could be picked up on eBay that work great with Wigle. I'm looking for somet https://9apps.ooo/ hing that doesn't take a year to get GPS lock and has serious battery life. Also if you had one of the CDMA/GSM world phones would that detect both towers? https://9apps.ooo/

Pixel 4as aren't too bad, but if you want a real budget pick, and older Pixel used on ebay might be a good purchase!

I'm looking for something as well.. But it seems whatever I use it drains the battery really quick. Is this normal or not?

generally its pretty battery friendly - most "new" phones I have can use it for hours on end, and the pixel 5 can run it all day. Have you changed the settings to scan as quickly as possible?

My little Samsung Core Prime will run 8+ hours as long as it doesn't get too warm. It is slow to GPS lock, but not more than 2 minutes usually.

My S7 Edge easily runs for 4-5 hours on battery, have to keep the screen off on that one for better life. It'll get a GPS lock in my basement office in less than 10 seconds, very quick!

I recommend the Samsung S5. I use one as my personal phone.

Stock Android supports VOLTE, custom roms don't. You might not be able to make calls with it past 2022.

It's had continuous LineageOS support for about half a decade. Street value $50-$100, cheap OEM batteries, has all the radios. The only model you should get in North America is the SM-G900T. All of them have unlocked bootloaders and it generally has the most useful 4G bands. "A" model is locked and "V" model is 50/50 depending on whether the phone came with exploitable hardware.
