    Hi. My kids are 11 and 14, and I need to get them a new phone for Christmas. They will be happy with something that runs basic games and has about 32 gig memory for storing their Spotify downloads. My wife has been looking at a Samsung J3 (2017) but there seem to be newer models available for about the same price. In the past I found it difficult to implement parental controls on Android devices. This is partly due to my son being over 13 I think and and I could not put restrictions on his Google account because of his age, I can't really remember. Do you guys have any recommendations for for similar phones that I could easily implement parental controls? Many thanks.

    there really is no perfect phone to use parental controls. really you just need to find the specs and price that suits you and your wallet.

    it's really the apps you use that will help out.

    here are some articles for you to read:

    so it looks like family link is the app to get.
