Which £150-£250 phone - Refurb vs China phone

8
Found 18th Apr
Am going around in circles on my next phone. They all have the basic specs I'm after (NFC, USB-C, decent RAM and processor), but I'm unsure about the cameras on some of the refurbs.

Do I go for:-
Refurbed Hauwei P9 at £160
Refurbed Honor 8 at £190

or leap up to:-
Xiaomi mi note 3 128GB for £240 (aliexpress)
Nokia 8 for a similar price

I think they 5T deal is probably beyond my budget (and is it THAT much better?)
I also love the look of the mi mix 2, but the poorer camera puts me off.

Any thoughts on any of these?

Can u stretch a bit more and get the Honor view 10.
As a Chinese from China , I vote for 5T
Extra £20 to your budget and look at the Honor 9. A great phone for them money.

That's a bit of a stretch, they look to be aroung the £340 mark. Not too sure what the extra 100 is getting me?

Not too sure why I missed that one,similar specs to the nokia though?
See this comparison
5T has way better cpu which is snapdragon 835, faster speed, better screen,
Hmmm, the mi note 3 has gone up in price for the 128GB one.

I'm being REALLY drawn to the mi mix 2. Loving the lack of bezel, but can I live with the slightly poorer cam?
