Found 23rd Jan
Hi,

I'm looking for a good Android phone as a secondary phone (Have iPhone 6 as work phone, but don't want to take my work phone on my honeymoon).

I'm really confused with the 4G band discussions, so would appreciate some guidance if possible?

Thanks for the help,

Just looked at the 7, not sure its for me. I want a cheap phone that is unlocked, so I can be on any network.

Looking £80 -£130 mark really.

eBay too .. Sure the more tech savvy will be along soon and the guys with stuff to sell

​I would prefer the Smart Ultra 6 than the Ultra 7 as the 6 has a Snapdragon processor and the 7 has a Mediatek processor. Snapdragon processors are known to be superior to the equivalent Mediatek processors.

if you get one wiht band 20 then yes.
if you get one without band 20 then no 4g on o2/giffgaff/teso

Motorola G4 play can be had for about £80. Only 1gb ram, but I don't have any issues with it. Plus the play has NFC (using android pay alot recently after misplacing bank card for a few days). the G4 and G4 have more ram, but no NFC.

Smart Ultra 6 if you're happy with an average camera.
I've had mine for over a year

Oukitels are pretty good and they have good cameras. I have an Oukitel U8 (universal tap) and it's ace. Cost £80, android is lollipop and 12mp camera
