Hi, I'm looking to buy an android phone under £200.
I would like it to be new
5/5.5 inch screen
Good camera
NFC
Decent battery life
Currently have a Smart Ultra 6.
No Chinese phones if possible, I've had hassle before.

Any recommendations?

The Lenovo ZUK Z2 is fantastic value and a good phone, too. Do not opt for the pro as it's alot more money for no benefit.

Oh and if you do opt to give the ZUK a try, Gearbest had for around £140. You absolutely must get a case though. It has a glass back that slips on the flattest of surfaces.

found this offer right under yours I'd take a look at it....if not up to your preference I really suggest you get a contract as there's some real good phones out there at least £20ish a month...I have Huawei P9 lite (but I get £18 a month because of EE family deals) but I recommend the Huawei family very much.

P2 or the up coming Nokia 5 but P2 seems to fit better.

I've heard the camera on the P2 is poor?

looks ok to me on the whole.

P2 camera isn't up with the last couple of generation flagship style cameras. It doesn't have image stabilisation which makes really good quality pics hard to capture. Battery is a beast though!

does the p2 camera fare better than a smart ultra 6?
#16
Nothing wrong with the P2 camera....just a few website reviews clutching at straws to try and find a negative with a £200 handset from Lenovo that easily beats the other competition at this price range....

Its fast and smooth to use, great build quality and the battery life is brilliant.

I would recommend the Motorola Motorola x force . John Lewis sell for £480. there is a site (won't name as they usually get cold ) who are selling it for £177.99. although if you are with 02 then 4g won't work . or if you are on 02 then a Huawei p8 lite 2017 for £183.71 (again won't name as unsure of approved seller or not but do a quick Google search and you'll find it ). good luck with the search . hope you get a cracking phone and happy with your purchase . let us know what you opt for .

P2 camera is honestly fine, basically a camera is a camera unless you're a real photogeek.

Image stabilisation isn't the key to good pictures - it's more about image processing, lens quality and sensor size and sensitivity. Too much emphasis is put on OIS, which only really benefits low light still subjects and video - e.g. the iPhone 6S and SE don't have OIS but still take excellent photos.

The P2 takes perfectly fine photos for its price. There are phones for around £200 that have better cameras - the Honor 6X from Three for example - but this comes with caveats elsewhere, such as battery life.

For £200 you have to make sacrifices, but I wouldn't say the P2 has a bad camera.

Google: Motorola x force
on a desktop PC. It'll shop up on the right side. The site has "stores operated in Australia, the Europe..." ;)

I’d say Lenovo P2. It’s an epic phone for the money. Very happy with mine. I don’t really use the camera so much (I have a DSLR for taking professional-quality photos), but the pictures I have taken have been great quality imo. It has NFC and a HUGE battery capacity (it’s basically what it is known for).

So this P2. Is it unlocked to use on other networks?

Yep. All Three phones are unlocked to use on other networks. I’m using my Talkmobile SIM in it (runs on Vodafone’s network).
