Hi,

Any recommendations for a budget android phone I guess around £100 - £150

It's for an 11 year old, mostly for spotify\whattsapp\email, will need a front camera I guess for video calling and would like expandable storage for spotify.

I'm a bit out of touch these days as I have a work phone.
thanks for any suggestions.

If I can narrow it down to 2 or 3 then I can see if a good deal comes up, might be something around black Friday I guess.

Cubot max is only £107.09 on amazon if you are quick .
Just ordered a Xaoimi Note from Gearbest for my Sons Birthday, should take 2-3 weeks delivery and possible customs of £11.50. That deal has expired now but there is a Note deal that appears 2-3 times per week on here. It's important to get the Global version so make sure it's in the description.

You really can't get the spec in the UK for a similar price.

I'm using a Ulefone Power 2 at a similar price which I'm really happy with.
Old iPhone 6 or 5s?

Just seen this
amazon.co.uk/gp/…c=1
Would you say after a six month period a Cubot phone would still work well. I know a few reviews are written not long after purchase but would like to know how they hold up after a bit of use. Currently use a z3 and the battery doesn't even last a whole day so am looking at a cheapish replacement with a bigger battery
nice, thanks, was thinking of waiting until black Friday, I've decided against China sellers like Gearbest etc etc.

Tempted by this, not seen much better - just worried by some of the bad reviews but there are the same bad reviews on every budget phone, at least from amazon I can just return this if it's crape!

I know that's why I like the idea of getting from.them.too.I am still having a look as not sure if a 6in screen may be too big. I did have a su6 last year and that was on the larger side. I just want a cheap phone with 3gb ram and 32gb storage as I have had a few issues of sd cards getting corrupt and losing pics etc. And something that will last a while without having to charge twice a day.

Just in case you're still looking I was looking for two phones and went for a 2Gig Moto G4 £105 and a Moto G4 Plus £110 both refurbished and like new, both are up and running with the latest updates. One was from amazon warehouse and the other from a 3rd party seller 'prelovedmobile' but fulfilled by amazon and on amazon prime.

Early days yet but everything seems fine so far.

Ah good stuff, I actually went for a moto g5 very good refurb from Amazon warehouse but in the week i had it, it restarted itself 4 times which was especially annoying when you were mid way through a phone call so I sent it back. Meanwhile after factory resetting my z3 it is now performing a heck of a lot better battery wise, so may hang on to a tad longer.
Thanks for getting back
