    Looking to get rid of my really old iphone, after spending most of yesterday looking at phones its a minefield out there so I came here hoping somebody could recommend something in the £200 to £250 range, this would be on Pay n Go.

    Any make, maybe android if possible at that price.


    Thanks.

    Do you have any preference with regards to screen size? I only ask because you can pick up an iPhone 5S for under £200, and it's still a very capable phone. If you're already in the ecosystem it might be a bit of bother plunging to a different OS and buying all your apps again. See:

    You considered used phones?

    A grade Sony Z3 in Copper (awesome colour) at CEX (locked to Vodafone) is currently GBP 170. Spend another GBP 5 on eBay for an unlock code and you have a very nice unlocked phone for GBP 175.

    For GBP 200-250 you should easily be able to pick up a mint Samsung S6/Note 4 (if that takes your fancy) on many UK forums.

    Stick with mint used flagships. Don't buy new budget or mid range phones.
