Phone Pick Help

Hello, I’ve been using E for over 3 years now and it’s definitely my go to OS. However, I’ve been with my OnePlus 6t for over 6 years and sadly i think it’s time for an upgrade. I’ve changed the battery and took care of this little device quite a bit, but I can’t get it to last a full day, the camera is well to put it mildly not the best and i can see it slowing down sufficiently.

Can someone please suggest a decent replacement. I’ve been digging in forums and suggestions for over a month now and can’t seem to find a worthy match.

My main requirement are a short list (or so i thought)

  • big battery (preferably over 5000)
  • oLED display
  • dulaSIM
  • relatively medium size (screen around 6.4-6.7")
  • some water resistance (i work in a factory so it will get wet either from water, oils etc)

any help/suggestions are appreciated

The fairphone 5 is dual sim with oled display and a big battery and a 6.5’screen I would still recommend it to anybody using /e/ a it gets the best support and especially the firmware updates with the os update as well as the the full hardware compatibility with the /e/ os, the latter being increasingly important regarding VoWifi and VoLTE. It is very important for long term use.

I do not know if eSIM is implemented but it has two physical SIM slots.

Alternatively, the Murena 2 phone will also get good support (though maybe not as good ?) with firmware updates and hardware compatibility. It is cheaper.

thank you, honestly that was my first pick but the ip55 is a bit concerning and the camera feedback isn’t great (definitely not my main priority, but if I’m getting an upgrade… might as well) the other option was pixel 7 but… idk Google
