Speaking of toys . . I just got a new Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge phone, 5.5 inch screen ($710 from discount dealer on Ebay, no sales tax). It's my first flagship quality phone/toy and it's really awesome, a big step up over a mid-range phone. Everyone commented how good the pictures that I took with it were at my niece's graduation. My last smartphone was breaking down and I wanted something better for my Middle East vacation later this summer.
Like Al, I have been trying to spend a bit more although I think I am having an easier time of it ;-)
