32mb? Christ, that doesnt strike me as a massive deal either!

I have this phone, good value for that price, but really not a great device.
In what way isn't it a great device ??
It's a great phone for the money

For the average user this phone is great. Fast enough for any apps and most games. Has a headphone jack and slots for 2 sims + micro SD card. Battery life on this is phenomenal, 2 days of use is no problem. Has a premium feel to it with a metal body which is much better than the competition's plastic offerings.

Cameras bring this down so if that is important to you look elsewhere, otherwise it's great value.

I've got one. It'll do a day and a half with light use, but only with the battery saver on.
It definitely isn't the battery beast everyone makes it out to be.
Is this unlocked?

It's good. It's not great though. Flagships are 'great'.

You get what you pay for.
Had the 4gb / 64gb version since release (last Summer now)

Been great for me, camera is ok for me, I don't play games, and maybe the last really good phone (along with the Redmi Note 5 / Honor 8x) to use Micro USB which i am happy to stay with as.long as possible.

Pure Android is so much better than most skins from my experience, and the phone has been smooth with no niggles.

I admit I use battery saver most of the time (I just find Bluetooth connects better when it is off, and camera is a bit better too) but with it on I get about 2 days medium use, certainly better than many phones out there at this price.

I would guess that you have some rogue apps/software running in the background and draining the battery. Battery usage is different for everyone of course but for me, I'd watch an hour and a half of Netflix on the commute each day and then about 1-2h of screen on time throughout the day and I can get 2 days out of it (to be precise until around 9pm on the second day).

**I must add that I am in an extremely strong signal area and use WiFi in work which helps the battery a lot.

Regarding Battery, I would look at News / Weather apps that update regularly, (either disable or change update level) and get rid of Facebook app altogether (just login to web page).

To be fair, my light use is probably medium for most users. I'm a chronic fiddler.

I do have apps that I know are known drainers, but I need them. Job apps, streaming apps, porn* etc.

I also leave my WiFi on when I'm at work, as I always forget to put it back on when I get home, after I've watched half a dozen videos. Not wise.

*not really.

New, but £8 over budget, the Xiaomi a2 lite I'd say.
I got this phone and like it. But the only problem is it closes every app after i go back to home and switch to another app. So everytime i open an app the app starts like i opened a nee app.
this or Moto G6 play for £100 from Argos
I've had this phone for over a year. It's solid for the price, fast enough, no bloatware, good battery life, quick charging.

The biggest negative for me is the speed of the camera, portrait mode is excellent but you need to be statue still and wait several seconds between shots.
Mr Switch, you wouldn't happen to know a the best place for a screen replacement? This is a really good phone so tried Alli and just got scammed and just gave up.
I've had the redmi 4x (octocore, 64gb rom, 4gb ram) for two years. I just replaced the mini-usb board after wear and tear. I was looking at this phone as a possible replacement but I'm not sure the build quality will be as good as my metal 4x. It's either going to be this or the Moto G7 Plus. I think flagship phones are overpriced and overrated. Any extra features they have usually don't justify the extra price. I use my phone for whatsapp, maps and occasionally buying stuff. I'm not sure how having a flagship phone would improve on that considering those apps start instantaneously on my phone already.

No worries thanks for getting back. Edit* That was poorly written. What ment was the AliExpress one was such poor quality but only days after fitting it started to fail. And return system was so rigged I gave up. Such a shame as such a good phone wasted.

I got the Mi A3 for £150 which seems to be a better deal as the new version now includes a headphone jack.

The Mi A2 Lite has a headphone socket.

(The Mi A2 does not)

I was looking forward to the Mi A3 but I think it is disappointing, as many reviews seem to say too. Has some nice specs, Seemingly really great battery life and Android one, but that screen is a miss step. Not bad for £150, but the Mi A2 Lite is pretty close to it spec wise and with a better screen

Xiaomi are great, but they produce SO many phones you really need to check what each phone has to offer.

On a separate note, I finally got my Note 5 Pro all unlocked and rooted, and it's really awesome with the Pixel Experience ROM. So much better than Miui, really feel the difference.
Edited by: "DonkeyKonk" 13th Sep
I've had the Mi A2 for a year now and it's been decent. I have had constant issues with wifi disconnecting constantly and many other have reported the same things on their forum. Other than that issue it's been great

This.


MrSwitch I bow down to your phonedealhunting expertise.
I have looked at so many phone deals that I've got myself tied up in knots.
If my max budget is £400 (but ideally less) and my priorities are camera and battery life which phones should I be considering? I'd also like it to last at least 2 years, I don't change phones often.

Hiya, and thanks
I'd say Huawei mate 20 pro would tick the "battery life" and camera boxes.

Huawei are generally the best in those apartments.

Maybe even look at the honor 20, or the view 20, both cracking cameras with stellar battery life
Thank you I will have a look at those. I hadn't looked really at Huawei or honor as the whole thing with google made me a bit nervous that they'd just stop getting updates.
