    1: An ability to give voice commands to make totally hands-free calls, and to make commands for those calls to be on speakerphone.
    2: An awesome camera
    3: A great battery
    4: At least 8 GB RAM

    Preferences: I don't like the "Long and thin" design of the currently promoted galaxy phones, (you read text left to right not up and down. Seems they would have figured this into their designs). I saw a couple that were extra wide, but they looked more like Phablets.
    I like a niche (See what I did there) balance of 3 and a half inches across by 6 inches tall.

    Any suggestion? My Od LG V30 is on her last legs.

    3.5 inches wide? That's 89mm, a full 13.5 mm wider than your V30.

    Are you sure you typed that correctly? There have only ever been a few phones that wide released, and they were very much a niche (and in this markets niche devices disappear because they aren't profitable).

    If that is what you want you then here are the results of a GSMArena "phone finder" search for "available" or "coming soon" phones released since 2017 which are at least 85mm wide and have at least 8GB RAM: https://m.gsmarena.com/results.php3...n=80&nRamMin=8000&sAvailabilities=1,2&sOSes=2

    You'll have more options if you reduce the minimum width requirement.

    Right you are.
    I think I was off but a good margin. my LG (that I am pretty cool with) is 2.97 in screen width roughly, (Minus the bezel of course) so a phone
    It's full dimensions are 151.7 x 75.4 x 7.3 mm (5.97 x 2.97 x 0.29 in)
    You're the man! Thanks!

    I'd suggest a Samsung Note model. Not big enough to be phablets but nicely large for people with big hands.
