Any decent android phones out there below the £200 mark which has a fingerprint scanner also?

Thinking about getting the LG Nexus 5x but it's still pretty expensive for what it is.

Thanks in advance

I picked up the Nexus 5X when it was on offer at Carphone warehouse, I think it was £150. I'm no expert when it comes to phones but for me, it's great. I'm not sure if there are any current offers

Xiaomi Note4 can be had from about £130 to £170 if you buy directly from their Chinese estore, you may get stung for import duty - its a bit of a lottery, some do, some dont.

Huawei p9 lite brilliant battery with finger print scanner grade a from cex like new with 24 months warranty £130

The Note 4 is a bad buy as it's mediatek, so buggy and poorly supported. I agree with the xiaomi recommendation but make sure it's a Qualcomm based model.

Nexus 5x specs are very good for the price. Latest android as well nougat 7.0.
Great phone, I have one.
#6
The 5x is £200 at Argos
#7
the Honor 5x seem to have good reviews too
#8
Motorola G4 Plus.

Do some research.... It is one of the highest rated sub £200 phones.

I got mine a week ago, and I am (so far) very impressed.

The phone runs really smoothly, the fingerprint recognition is super fast, and the battery life knocks the spots off anything I have had so far, and I consider myself quite a heavy user.

The only bugs I am aware of are in the OS, and affect a number of the Note range phones, including my original Note 3G; they will be sorted soon I expect; or roll back to the last version of MIUI (7), and all the issues go away.

MTK are well known to be buggy crap, they break the law and steal code, they run worse, use more battery and rarely get updates or support even from the manufacturers due to them breaking licensing agreements and not releasing code.

Well that is VERY odd, because a number of phone makers, including Western Brands, are using the new Mediatek cpu's because they use less power than the Snapdragon cpus.
Also, MY phone is Mediatek, and for the first year I got WEEKLY updates, the 2nd year I got MONTHLY updates, and it is only now the phone is in its 3rd year, that updates have dropped to bi-monthly.
What they arent doing is releasing the code to allow 3rd party hacks of the firmware.

The code is under license, they are illegally using it if they don't release the sources. Also do some research MTK are junk. There's a reason why no one ever recommends the (mtk) xiaomi Redmi note 3 and says to avoid it all all costs, yet the Redmi note 3 Pro which is the Qualcomm version is their best selling phone and constantly in GSM arena's weekly most popular 5 phones. Only a couple of Western companies use them and it tends to either be small ones or in low spec low selling phones running old android versions.
