Samsung Galaxy S5/S5 Neo or Nexus 5X?

£0.00 @ Samsung

I've been looking at something around the £200 mark to replace my Moto E 2nd gen which while I love the 8gb of memory is just abysmal with Marshmallow installed (something like 2gb for apps available) and these 3 phones seem to be what I'm after (more memory/ram/faster processor) but unsure on which to go for as they all have their own pros and cons.

I'm open to suggestions if anyone can suggest anything better but a couple things I've been looking for are;
- UK based support (I seem to have terrible luck with most technology so its nice to have)
- At least 16gb memory/2gb ram
- Smaller than 5.5" but preferable less than 5" (which is difficult I know)
- Refurb/used doesn't bother me as long as the condition is good if it brings the price down

Thanks in advance

Out of those in the heading I'd chose the 5x for sure. However perhaps consider the following?
Honor 5c
Honor 5x
Moto G4 (guessing plus is also in budget?)

The honor brand are good for updates so worth looking into. They have a new flagship out this month which might bring down the cost of their other phones but most likely only their old flagship, the honor 7.

The 5c is closest to the 5" screen requirement and at a guess the Motorola is 5.5"?

But still worth considering as a good brand and value for money.

5x looks good for the price but I'm really trying to shy away from the 5.5" size. I used to use a 3.8" lumia as my daily driver and moving from that to my 4.5" moto e was a struggle for awhile. Same reasoning I haven't jumped at the G4 Plus.

The G4 Plus' features compared to the 5x at a similar price point is also something I've considered. Both have their strengths.

The 5c looks interesting though. My main worry is things like case options and how the skin effects day to day use (I use Nova launcher generally) and in general the build quality. I imagine at that price some small corners must have been cut even if Huawei aren't your usual Chinese company.

I'd recommend visiting a three store as I think they have the 5c / honor phones. Search reviews etc, they're well made and good bits of kit.

They're updating fast and although they have their top over UI (emui), that's just mostly the settings menu. They also have a lot of useful features android doesn't. Again, worth checking out. Nova etc will work fine.

As to cases, you won't get big company ones but should be enough, I normally check eBay tbh when buying a new phone.

Hope you find the best one for you!

Sadly the three store (and all the other mobile stores for that matter) around here has a dire selection. Mainly just Flagships and a few ultra budget phones.

It's more at this point to I jump at a grade A nexus or buy a new 5c from Amazon as they're priced the same. Definitely the best two choices in my price range. Dilemmas X)

I'm waiting for the 2016 Nexus devices to come out before I purchase the Nexus 6p. The 6p and 5x prices should fall dramatically once the next gen devices come out. Meant to be around October.

They could do, but I'm not overly convinced they'll drop too much. I don't feel phones can really get much more powerful at much lower costs at this point. Unless Qualcomm have a new more advanced Snapdragon chip up their sleeves. Hopefully some specs will leak soon I hope if that's the case.
