Posted 4th Feb
I am looking for a decent mobile 5" or below, with decent camera and led notifications. Apart from Apple iphone 7 is there anything else available at £160.

A used Google Pixel 2 is a good choice with a fantastic camera, but battery life could be poor since it's quite old now. There's 14% off several eBay sellers right now with code PAMPER14:

thanks I will have a look.
Also the Samsung Galaxy S9 is a very similar size to the Pixel 2 despite having a larger screen: hotukdeals.com/dea…085
Keep in mind. The newer bezel-less 6" inch ish screens will be smaller than many other 2 year old phones with 5" screens.
There are hardly any decent phones with a 5" screen manufactured now.
The screens have got bigger but that doesnt mean the phone has got bigger
As you can see with example above i.e pixel 2, have huge lip at top and bottom very old in style, better to have that wasted space as a screen

thanks for the feedback, the thing is my wife wants a similar size phone to the iphone. I think that is about 134mm. The other phone is the experia XZ2 compact. I lot of the newer phones are around 145-150mm

Put simply, no, not on android in the last two years...other than maybe the XZ2 Compact which doesn't exactly have the best screen to body ratio. Not with those size limitations.

If you upped the size a little then perhaps the Samsung A40 at 144mm.

yes I know theres not a great deal of choice at that size.
Check out Xaiomi or Oppo, my Xaiomi is an excellent phone and I've tried quite a few.

That's something you have to work out, I can't make that decision for you. Just check out their phones, there is always a deal posted on here.

Then if u know there was no need to ask.. There is currently no phone on android released in the past couple of years that fits the requirements.
Go 1cm bigger and you will have loads of options and much a better phone
