Hello.

I've had a look on here and the last thread like this is over a year old. So whats the best sub £100 smartphone available at the moment?

Looking to get a cheap smartphone for my dad, who is still using a flip phone! Just want something that can take decent photos and that can use whatsapp, so he can join the family group chat.

I was looking at the Alcatel Pixi 4 from EE for £99 (including Beats headphones), but after reading further reviews, the screen and camera quality are apparently very poor. What are my other options?

Cheers.

Got this by email from Amazon this morning £79.99....

BLU Life Mark - 4G SIM-Free Smartphone - 16GB +2GB RAM - Grey

Pretty good spec for the money, I always buy chinese/import phones and stay off contract - even if you only have for a year it's worth it

I'd usually avoid chinese imports when giving to parents.

o2 has some decent phones going for pretty cheap, eg:

Wileyfox Swift. Currently £99.99

It is excellent for the money. You will be amazed at the quality for the price.

Wife has one and tbh it is really good.

1186 reviews, 4 star average.

+1 For the SU6. It's well worth the money.

I'm curious, why? The operating system would be the same - KitKat/Marshmallow....my parents are both 75 and don't have issue with Android

Moto G4 Play

Is the Moto G4 worth the extra over the play? I've been looking into the Moto G4 and it appears to be a popular phone both here and from reviews.

I'm buying my misses the Moto G4 @ £159 for Christmas, probably the best value phone on the market for the price & specification. You've got to have a screw lose to pay over £500 for a mobile.

Thanks guys. Tempted by the Vodafone Smart Ultra 6. Has anyone got one? are they easy to unlock?

Don't really need a 3gb octacore superphone. He's literally gonna use it for Whatsapp, camera and maybe google maps.

its good and fine for what you want, keep the receipt you might need a warranty claim as a lot have screen issues after a while

the su6 is also octocore, just an fyi

LG K4 does also those. It is £29.99 from O2. Unlocks costs £2.59 from eBay

There were other better phones around that price, but they are now out-of-stock.
