Maybe the worst of the S series. £199 is around £50-£75 overpriced. Cold to me.
I'd never buy a phone as investment, use it abuse, move on. If you get a few quid for it when you replace all well and good. No Android phones hold value for long past their initial launch unless there are supply and demand factors that will keep the value up a little.....as far as this phone goes though...I think it's just a few too many generations old for people to care about it now. Additionally I think a lot more people are getting wise to Samsung's stupid phone pricing, they offer very little more than the supposedly cheap brand Android handsets but Samsung keep on touting £800+ handsets that are £400 hardware and £400 Marketing budget.... Also I think in the last two years midrange handsets have moved forward a lot. £150-£200 now will buy you a midrange handset offering close to the performance of a flagship and phones like the Poco F1 are showing that without Samsung's marketing costs a £250-£300 phone can offer Flagship level performance....
Wow does this phone at £199 really deserve -300 guess that shows just how quickly Android Flagships phones are poor poor investments unlike Apple products
Well I couldn’t have a phone without NFC and it has ports that are over 11 years old! Always trade offs as I said. 2019 nearly and no NFC built for a certain market and I’m not It in that market. Ok for people who like to own budget items!
Other than the lack of NFC none of those apply to the Redmi Note 5
