My current one is an iRulu Victory v3, a cheapo Chinese phablet. Quad
core, Android 5.1, 2 GB RAM, 16 GB Flash + 64 GB B5SD.

It runs Chrome (which crashes half a dozen times a day, the 1st phone
I've had that problem on), Facebook, Twitter, a Reddit client, Gmail,
Telegram, Whatsapp, Signal, FB Messenger, Skype, Swarm -- OK, I lied,
that's kind of a game -- Untappd, Keep, and dozens of specific app
clients -- half a dozen airlines, 3 banks, 2 taxi services, 2 mapping
services, etc. etc.

Quite a lot of apps, which is why I had to reluctantly abandon Blackberry.

In terms of stability, Android 2 was OK. Android 4 was poor. Android 5
is terrible. It rarely locks up or freezes -- only monthly if that --
but it slows down until it takes 2-3min to open an app and 30 sec to
type a word in extremis.
