This might be true, but you still have to deal with Android. And if she is …This might be true, but you still have to deal with Android. And if she is a snapchat user, then the android app is a bloated disastrous mess.I would advise you to look at refurbished iPhone 6s. Can be had around the 200 mark on eBay and the A9 processor is twice as powerful as the 625 in this. These are the ‘I can’t believe it’s not butter’ of phones. Impressive performance for the cost but they ultimately compromise to give a decent imitation of the real thing. Of course, this is a much better buy than any android flagship: paying big money for any phone using an amateur hour OS is not sensible. But going from an iPhone 5s to Android will be jarring, and a refurbished 6s coupled with the £25 battery replacement would be the best option.



Thank you for posting undoubtedly the biggest load of crap I've seen posted on this forum in 2018 so far.

The OS on this phone comes straight from Google and should be updated regularly for the next 3 years. I doubt older generations of iPhone will see that kind of support and even if they do, it's offset by the fact that iOS is terrible.

I moved from iPhone to Android five and a half years ago and have never once looked back and Android back then was far less stable and user friendly than it is now.

Incidentally by no measure is the A9 twice as powerful as the SD625 and the SD625 is far more battery efficient.

Don't get the big fuss over NFC personally. Maybe it's just me.

Comparable for what? Your daughter doesn't require the world's fastest CPU and GPU for using Snapchat. Get her a Xiaomi or OnePlus. My previous Xiaomi cost £200 and lasted me just under 5 years (still works technically but wouldn't upgrade and apps stopped working with that version after updates).
My current Xiaomi (Redmi 3S) cost £105... still works fine 15 months on

Red model is about £175 at the moment. Still not too bad though.

Mine received that patch last week I think but IIRC they deploy these things in waves based on sequential serial number.

Wife got her update this afternoon, installing it now, so I'll get mine tomorrow, that always seems to be the way it works. Thanks for the info on the serial numbers, I didn't know that was how it worked and always wondered why she got her updates before me.

I believe they didn't used to have the PayPal choice, happy to pay the £6 fee though just in case
For these what is the best compromise on shipping speed and customs charges?

You need to look at flagships if you want a like for like against an iPhone 7 which is not all that old.

Can't answer your question sorry but been looking at the Honor 9 myself so would be interested to see the answer.
I was on the verge of taking out a Vodafone contract with Sony Xperia XZ premium , 8gb data, spotify etc.. at £31 a month.
How does this handset compare?
23-43 day delivery? Is it really going to take this long???
Got mine last week from eGlobal. Cracking phone. Love having stock android but I do miss a few decent feature from my S6 edge... Never thought I'd say that touch Wiz had a few useful additions!!

So far with surfing, gaming and YouTube never once experienced any lag.

Battery is solid too. I'm a heavy user and easily get a day out of it. Currently measuring 7 hours SOT.

Only small irks... Indoors the camera can be slow to focus, and coming from a S6 (amazing phone camera) the camera is an understandable step down, but in no way terrible.. Not tried it much outdoors yet.

Also contrast ratio is less than what I had on the edge...so it's noticeable only if you're coming from a flagship. Price difference being a few hundred pounds so I'm happy with that!

Just to top it off I've got a notification for Oreo. 😁😁😁

HK Goldway are probably the best resellers on aliexpress, and are better than gearbest. Especially in aftersale support.

I do want a better camera and it's going for £221 whereas mi mix 2 is £324. To be honest my redmi note 3 is still on android 6 (mu mi 8)and it's made no real difference to me so I'm not really fussed I'm terms of newness.
