Looking for a mobile phone for around 150 - 200

Im looking for a mobile phone for around £150 - £200. Im currently using a samsung s6 which is slowly dying lol. Ive always had samsung but not cant afford to pay for a contract.
I was looking at the moto g5 but unsure as to which is the better phone for around this price range.
Any help would be really appreciated because im clueless.
Thanks in advance

Nothing wrong with the G5 but the P2 has more to offer for the price.
Battery life in particular is way better than any other smart phone out there

The S5 was released in April 2015 and came with 24 months manufacturer's warranty so you could get it repaired by Samsung if you got it new under contract.

Looks a nice phone, thanks

Look at Moto G4 as prices will be falling now G5 out. From what I can see G5's only difference is fingerprint reader and later version of Android. Downside is slightly smaller screen surprisingly. G5 probably has USB type C rapid charging but not sure.

I'd look at wileyfox, love mine and unlike many others they haven't abandoned their older models and still update them to the latest OS.

try lg g5 i am sure you can find it in 200 quid mark on internet shopping sites such as amazon

Ive got a Samsung Galaxy s5 mint condition. It's starting to play up a bit turns itself off every now and then but it's still pretty solid. Would a Lenovo p2 be a step up or step backward? I've looked on cell phones compare site and the features on the s5 still out weigh the p2 by quite some way.

What features on the S5 do you need that the P2 doesn't have?
I replaced my Note4 with a P2, the P2 on paper is a far inferior spec phone but I wouldn''t go back to the Note4 now. Unless you like to play benchmark bingo the P2 is plenty fast enough and the battery life is amazing.
Mine hasn't seen a charger for nearly 40hrs now and is still showing 40% battery left.....

You could always flash a new rom, or flash the stock rom, wiping everything as you go along e.g Dalvik Cache etc.

I don't need the features that the s5 has over the p2 I was just asking any one with a better knowledge of me if it would be a better improvement over the Samsung galaxy s5

​First had the storm then upgraded to the Swift 2X because i like my gadgets.

There isn't much difference between the 2 plus and 2x, the 2x just has a slightly better screen and less glare from certain viewing angles.
