Looking to help a friend with an upgrade. Currently has a Motorola Moto G XT1032 8GB (http://www.gsmarena.com/motorola_moto_g-5831.php). Requirements:

* Android - and still supported for updates
* Similar size to existing phone ~4.5 inches
* Under £250
* At least 16GB memory (preferably with SD card option too)
* At least 2GB RAM

Had previously recommended the Sony Z3 Compact when it was available new at Vodafone for £150, but times have moved on!

I have a nexus 5x 16GB. Great phone and updates are plenty being a Google device.
Got it for £170 from argos in a sale, with a £10 gift card.

note 7?

Thanks, but falls down at the second requirement. The Note 7 is 5.7 inches.

Also probably too big at 5 inches, unless there's a model variation I'm missing? Might have to look into this one.

​Factor in that the bezel will be slimmer on the xiaomi then you are looking at around 10mm extra width and height compared to 1st gen moto g which really isn't a lot. plus its a lot thinner and with a 1080p display I personally think you will be pleasantly surprised that you have an extra half inch display at much greatly quality, with similar weight to the moto g

I am used to bigger 5.5 inch displays but have a moto G as a backup phone, my wife's phone (Elephone p6000 pro) has just broke so she's back on the moto G, and because of weight and bulk the moto g really doesn't feel that sma

p.s I only recommending the xiaomi mi4 variants because they are compact, have all the features required (bar SD slot on the mi4/mi4c) but are powerful enough for current uses while being produced by a reputable company at under £200

Thanks, it does look interesting.

Also considering the Moto G 3rd Gen 16GB/2GB RAM model, when compared to the current phone....

No gyro in the new, but think they can live without.

I'd be with Richard in saying the Nexus 5X. Take a look with the other two compared with it and the width dimensions have only .2mm difference with the Moto G 3rd Gen. The Nexus 5X is also getting Android Nougat. Much better processor,screen adds a fingerprint reader (I have a Nexus 6P and never once thought before having something with a fingerprint reader that I would be lost without it now!). Also adds dualband, ac,DLNA and WIFI direct. NFC also for google wallet.
