Looking for a decent android phone around the £300 mark

Found 15th Oct 2016
Hi, my girlfriends old I phone 5c has finally bitten the bullet and I need to source a replacement asafp. Been looking on here for ages for a decent deal on an android but not seen anything really stellar pop up. Happy to pay a bit extra for the right phone.. However she now needs it tomorrow or Monday at the latest.. Saw the one plus 3 deal but every O2 I've tried doesn't have one. Any one got any other ideas? Ideally on Amazon or the high street. She's got a decent sim only deal so just wants to buy the thing outright.

Thanks in advance...

£29 per month if you select the 3 network with £32 up front cost .
4gig data and unlimited Text and SMS - not bad for the money

I have had a contract with this company for six months and been good so far - even ported my number within 24 hours

Where from and how much mate?

This works out to be more than £600 for the whole contract. Have I missed anything? OP requirement is an android phone around £300 .

I just bought a One plus 3 ordered last Sunday night collected from O2 store on Tuesday. So you could try ordering today.

​Collection is from Lancashire. Price is £200. I got it on the 02 deal @192.00 but ended tgey have taken first month bill which was 26.00.

If she's got a iPhone 5c then why not get her an iPhone SE for £319 from giffgaff sim free?

You can get a Motorola Z play using a unidays code for £315 direct from Motorola. It's a big phone though.

Or Moto G4 plus, Moto X play or LG Nexus 5X are other good buys all sub £300 and all will get Nougat

Shes wanting a change from Apple mate.. cheers though

The Honor 8? The most beautiful phone you can get for around £300. And its dual cameras are far superior to the One Plus 3's camera.

Agree with this, stunning handset with a great camera. Can pick them up in Three stores too I believe

Motorola Moto G4 Plus.

Currently £184.99 on Amazon.

I am very pleased with mine.

Good screen, great battery life (I am a medium to heavy user and most days have 30% left), finger print recognition, running marshmallow with nougat planned.

Comes with a turbo charger.

Only real downside if you are bothered.... no nfc.

Seriously worth a look.
