I would suggest you talk to people in your area and buy the phone that works for your area, and if you travel, take that into account. I buy my phones "unlocked" off of Ebay. I buy Used Like New, or New Old Stock phones. It takes a little research but if you have the patience it will save you some money as well.
If you just want to walk into a store and buy a phone, go to Wally World, talk to the young people working the phone section about what you want and let them assist you.
There are way too many options on phones for me these days. Lol. Good luck.
