Help please. Best phone on a budget

12
Found 5th Nov 2017
My Vodafone smart ultra 6 is getting old and is time for a change. All help is appreciated

Thank you

Budget circa £120
5.5 inch screen
32mb internal ram

Looked at the Cubot X18 but low sales so not sufficient reviews.

Cheers
Richard

Xiaomi Global Redmi Note 4 with band 20 for £113 is an amazing phone and superb value for money, really fast and responsive.
5.5" Full HD, Snapdragon 625, 3GB Ram/32GB Storage, 4100mah Battery (last ages) Fingerprint ID, 13mp Camera...
£113 here will be £5 cheaper on 11/Nov, which is china's black friday.

What Sandy1012 said, using one now, lost my S7 edge and took a chance on the Redmi Note 4 and couldn't be happier with it, yes you take a chance on buying from China, shipping problems, no warranty etc. but for me it was worth it and for £100 if I have to buy one a year it will still be cheaper than being tied into an expensive contract.

Thank you. Buying direct from China is an issue. I don't mind buying via Amazon as IMHO, their customer service is good.

I do like warranties on new products.

Someone else suggested an iPhone

Cubot do several phones and there's other Chinese manufacturers.

I'm after something that meets my requirements circa £120 which has a warranty.

Yes, I was asking that person that suggested an iPhone :). I quoted them.
I was asking what iPhone exactly is that cheap second-hand and is an upgrade to your current phone.
I doubt an iPhone 6S Plus with 32GB of storage is that cheap even second-hand.

Why do you want 32mb? That's not even space for 5 songs nevermind photos/videos.

Anyway, as said, Redmi Note 4 Global is by far the best. Can even get the 4gb/64gb for £130.

You will struggle at that price without going down the import route along with those specs. If you willing for refurb try the LG G3/G4 (not the S or C models), Nexus 5/6, Huawei P9 Lite, all sitting around £130-£150 (used Music Magpie for reference). If you can really stretch was a Nexus 6P posted on here refurb for £199. Most of these fall short with the 32gb rom, but mostly all have expandable memory (except the Nexus devices but they are at least 32gb rom)
