Only if it is faulty. It is a good phone for the price.

Yes?

Christ this thing's on the big side.

Impressed with little touches like greater information on battery straight in the status bar.

Best android phone for between £100 and £150?

Doesn't have to be anything special, basic functions.

Upgraded from a Samsung S4 Mini to a Google Pixel today. God the difference is outstanding. It's like entering a new era of phones again.

It runs so much faster, there's so much more space and even just the phone itself feels nicer. It's also good to have an android phone without all the random samsung gooseberry fool they put on which I couldn't uninstall.

I'm looking forward to be able to use my phone for stuff during the day and not worry about immediately running out of battery.

Anyone got recommendations for an inexpensive dual sim phone? My mum's after one to save having to switch between her UK and French sims every time she travels.

I think Nokia do dual SIM versions of the 3 and the 5.

OP3T.

One man should not have this much power in this game. Luckily I'm not an ordinary man.

Thanks. Struggling to find places that are definitely selling the dual sim model. Some list it as dual sim, then the reviews say they got the single sim, or there's no information at all.

Thanks, but not quite as inexpensive as I think she's looking for.

Most of the cheap Chinese phones in the £100 bracket are dual SIM.

Yes?

Looking at new contract phones, but EE have been pissing me off (and they're not the best value) so probably going to change network. I'v e been with them (or Orange) for about five years so not sure what I'm doing

Which is generally considered the best network now, aside from EE? Is Three still for shitmunchers or is it actually decent? Which is better out of Vodafone and O2? Does anyone actually use Tesco/Sky/Virgin mobile?

Also, I've got a budget of about £40 a month. There are decent deals on the Galaxy S8, but my contract ends in Feb, and I think the S9 will be out in March. Should I wait, or will I struggle to get an S9 under my budget anyway?

Or do I go slightly off-piste with a Pixel 2 or something?

I have two contracts one with Three (mine) and one with EE.
The Three contract is pretty good value £18 8gb data unlimited mins+texts and tethering rolling contract, coverage is decent throughout the south of the country for me as I work all over.
They have got a lot better since they started out as I have been with them on and off since they launched in the UK.

My EE contract is with my other half and went through the Carphonewarehouse for a better deal than EE direct.

I use Tesco SIM only. 500 minutes, 5,000 texts and 4GB data for £10 per month.

Yes?
