    Nexus 5 replacement

    Looking to replace my Nexus 5 mobile, would like something similar, for me the Nexus was best mobile I had ever owned, easy to use, excellent screen and size. I bought it used via hot deals about 18 months ago for £100. I will be looking again for used about same cost, I have no intention on spending hundreds on any mobile. I would like something as near to the Nexus 5 as possible, Must be Android and unlocked if possible or able to use Talkmobile. Trouble is I am not to well up on mobiles. Any suggestions on what mobiles to look out for.

    Lol. He asked for something at £100 or less. And you suggest the Pixel! Only £799 more to go.

    You said only kidding after iPhone 8. So it looks like you were suggesting the other two.

    If your budget is £100 i would stick with the Nexus 5, it will still be better than anything costing £100

    What about Huaweii Y6? About £100 new. Great specs and a great manufacturer. Plus you're not paying a premium for the name. I have an Honor 7 (same makers) my son has the Y6 and it is fast. Checkout the specs..

    I would stick with my Nexus 5, but it's no longer working. Looked at a few used ones, but all in very poor condition.

    Like the look of this. £130 new sim free, only just over budget, plus factor it's new. Will try and have a look at one in local CPW store this weekend...Thanks

    Local shop not very helpful at all, pushing contract phones. Ok I can have new phone for a few £ more than I pay for sim only deal now, but I don't want a 2year contract, that's why I bought used Nexus 5 in first place. Will keep eye out on new and used mobiles offered on here. Got old Moto g 2 as temp mobile.
