Smoking hot decent phone, good brand and decent performance, and a UK warranty
can app info be saved onto the memory card? if not then what type of info can be saved on the memory card?
Rubbish phone
reserved one just in time for my son's birthday, thank you
£64.95 at Amazon if you have Prime.
Decent phone for the price. Had the 2nd gen as a backup phone. My 3 year old has been using for well over a year. Been dropped, covered in food, spat on but still going on strong! Definitely recommend

What happened to the reply option? You can store apps on the sd card providing you format it (there are options) when you first put the card in. Downside is you can't then view photos and videos also recorded on it simply by putting the sd card in an adapter into your computer but you can view and copy etc with a USB lead

Only 1 GB Ram. Will give memory runout warnings and shutdowns

my old htc desire had less ram and never shutdown because of it
I have just checked Argos and this phone is also available in black at the same price.
Very good price. But just be aware if you need it more than making a phone call or very simple browsing

So what would you guys recommend for a budget of £100? Constantly running out of memory is a bugbear for the Mrs. Currently she has a Vodafone ultra 6 and it's shockingly bad.

Nokia 3 perhaps or the funky Alcatel A5 led? Both have 2G ram 16G onboard and expandable via micro SD. Just bought the Alcatel via GiffGaff for a present for someone as it was at least something different from the norm.
If this suffers from ghost touch like my 4g plus it will drive you crazy

I bought, a week or two ago, a Moto C Plus for £90 and it's a 2G/16G, dual unlocked SIM version. (With Android N) from the Moto UK website.
Think it had a Moto voucher for tenner off at the time (it was on their website).
Nice phone.*
Big battery in it too.
If the offer is no longer there, then it'll be a tenner more but still free delivery.

*As a Moto G/G3/E and Huawei P9lite user for comparison, not as nippy or light the P9 lite, comfier to use like the other Moto I've had and better than them. Last longer though from a charge.

2g? You mean 4g,right? Sd card option? Thanks

Talking memory ;-)
Yes SD card of course and doesn't use any SIM slot.

There may be better phones at that price, depends what you are looking for.
I don't know.
But this has the purpose of needing the large battery, a nice usable screen and easy to use.

I was supprised that the C plus was a full spec up from the non-plus C version, screen, CPU, battery etc all upgraded and only a tenner more at the time.

Pop into some shops and have a look if I was you. They have demo versions you can fiddle around with and see if it works for you.

Edit/just had a look and Argos have it for the same 100 quid in red, it's a 2G/16G version if you read the comments (not 1G/16G) but packaging says on the side.
Argos is single SIM though. (Wouldn't bother me, dual wasn't needed for my use).

Other may recommend other phones at that price or wait for it to drop in price somewhere.

I'll second the Moto C Plus suggestion. I bought one for my M.I.L. along with a 32gb micro sd and used the combined storage option. It's got something daft like a 4000mAh battery, should run for days for her!

Stiil has, just bought one for £89.95.

Thanks
Amazon are selling 8GB Fire for £30 odd (if you can live with 8GB storage, I know I can't)

So how does the combined storage option work? I've got a few spare sd cards, and ideally I want the sd card to become extra storage without any limitations.
My budget still £100 so anything else which you guys recommend? Other halfs current phone is driving her bonkers. It's the ultra 6. It lags, is slow and not sure if I can expand the storage to make it quicker. She's deleted apps, photos but still not quite right.

If you have Prime and another tenner then the Moto E4 is an amazing phone for £109.95. Runs brilliantly on 2gb ram, has 16gb flash so you don't need the sd card straight away. Best budget phone I've seen!

My Moto E 1st gen (also with 1GB RAM) has never done either of those things, so why would this?

You put your sd card in when setting it up and it merges the on-board storage, so a 16gb phone and a 32gb card gets you 48gb. Obviously you need to factor in that you lose a bit from the os and apps already on the phone. When you save any apps, pics, etc it treats all the storage as one so you don't have to think about which apps can/should I move.

It does encrypt the card so you can't just remove it to add music or take off pics if you want to, obviously to stop someone taking the card out and putting it in their phone and reading your paypal info, etc!

They had leather(state) cases and silicone cases both with screen protectors in my local Tesco Extra today for this phone at 20p and 25p.

Probably subject to stock in your local but will help it stay childproof a little longer than without.

Using one to type this I would say Nokia 3 - great phone in the price band.
Also on their ebay store if you want delivering for £3.95

gedymiah7 is right though! It's pointless to pay £70 in 2017 for a 1GB Android phone, this won't last you till xmas!
