WhatsApp is going to stop supporting the 3GS in 2017 (it's becoming quite slow now anyway), so it's time to get a new smartphone. Anything Apple is probably out of the question because I want to free myself from iTunes forever (I'll probably use iTunes 8.1 for storage and that's it), unless something drastic happens. I also don't like being their customer for various reasons, primarily their strategical decisions.
So yeah, my budget is 300 Merkels max, I'd rather go below 200, though. Any recommendations? Is there a new, cheap smartphone to rule all cheap smartphones being released soonish?

The new iPhones don't require any iTunes

That said, I daresay the Moto G is a pretty good option for cheapos though the company was recently purchased by shitty Lenovo.
If you want to go over budget the OnePlus Three is okay if you're unafraid of the shitty company.

Altogether though, it might be worth it to buy a used phone from one of the big companies (Apple or Samsung or the Nexuses from Google) just for the sake of not running into random defects without proper support. Buying such a complicated product from anyone else is kind of a risk. So all in all, I recommend finding a Nexus 5X or iPhone SE from ebay or craigslist.

What about the Samsung Galaxy J5 Smartphone? People seem to like that one imho

http://www.alphr.com/samsung/1003076/sa ... et-handset

people say the battery is great. that's quite important for me imho. it looks like the ideal phone for someone like me. 160 merkels

edit: i realize those reviews are mostly commercials but the "moto g killer" theme is quite dominant everywhere (I assume there are *some* reviews Samsung didn't pay for)

http://www.expertreviews.co.uk/mobile-p ... o-g-killer

edit 2: last question: the 4th gen of the Moto G costs 230 Merkels. Is it actually worth investing those extra 70 Merkels (compared to the J5)?

What worries me about that one is that it's a Samsung, but word on the street is that they've got their **** together and that's a phine fone.

Oh, never mind then. I just meant for setting up and stuff. If you want to use the built in music app for music you didn't buy from Apple, you do still have to use iTunes. you can **** with it so that it uploads to THE CLOUD and you don't have to plug it in and sync, but I take it you'd rather have the files moved from place to place.

theadder, saying goodbye to the 3GS makes me sad, though. It was a solid companion, imho. Thanks a ton, theadder/bran, it was really helpful in many ways. I will probably keep it for another couple of months until I get a new smartphone. Some day, I might finally give in to the Apple stuff, but atm, it's too expensive for my needs. I would say that your overall goal was achieved, though. Is it okay if I give the 3GS to my dad once I do the purchase?
