Hi folks, any help would be greatly appreciated, the mother in law is looking for 2 mobiles as a present for her grand-kids in Australia.

She was thinking a 2nd hand iphone but i'm of the opinion that an android china brand mobile ie leagoo, homtom, doogee or whatever!! would be better as it would be new and the risk of a 2nd hand high priced iphone being faulty is to great ( especially as its for a gift)

Hoping to spend about £70 MAX for each - ideally from aliexpress as have heard the horror stories re gearbest - but i have ordered from them before with no issues.

Could anyone with any experience please suggest a handset - (min 2gig ram please)

Thank you!

more than your budget but I have leagoo shark, 6300 mah battery, can't fault it, bought from gearbest for £70 pre sale.
don't know about cheaper ones

I've got the homtom as a spare phone when I went abroad...and it was excellent! I'm an s6 edge user..and really into my tech...and couldn't fault it one bit. The main difference you'll find is that the screen isn't quite as good as flagship phones..but everything else is extremely good. Sat nav worked well..calls, whatsapp were flawless and battery life better than the Samsung. Hope this helps
