    New mobile help please, wife's Samsung S4 has wi-fi & bluetooth problems

    Wife's Samsung S4 is having Wi-Fi & Bluetooth problems, tried factory reset etc. so I think it's a hardware problem. I've been looking at a replacement for her, seen the Sony XA for a decent price or would you recommend Moto G4 or a Chinese phone.
    Thanks in advance

    what makes u suspect it's the hardware I have had this problem and most of times its software does it keep turning off or won't it let u switch it on.

    I went from an s4 to a redmi 3 pro, which had much better standby time and is a worthy successor for not much ££

    Coincidentally, I'm selling a Redmi Note 3 Pro Prime (Snapdragon 650 3GB/32GB - all UK LTE bands), with glass screen protector and naff case for £145 (or whatever my credit card bill says the phone cost when I purchased it a few weeks back).

    Bought it for my mum...but her Microsoft hosted custom email address doesn't sync properly with Android.

    It won't let u switch them both on....it was working up to two days ago, not due to any software upgrade as there wasn't one.

    It's VERY doubtful that a new rom will fix anything (especially if you have already reinstalled the normal operating system).

    Hardware fails...and the S4 is pretty long in the tooth.
