    So my contract is cancelled on Monday and I need to find a replacement one ASAP! I have been thinking of getting the iPhone 6 but looking on the internet it's such a bloody rip for £35p/m and only 500mb - 2gb worth of internet and 500 minutes . I am a big internet user because my room can't receive WiFi on phones I've had so far, probably not strong enough but I wouldn't know if the iPhone 5s is good at picking up WiFi signals? I currently have a Sony Xperia SP and it's sooo bad. Very glitchy since the update and camera quality is beyond poor it's a joke, I could take a better selfie with my cats anus. I'm a big picture taker for my Instagram too. I hear the iPhone 5s heats up a lot but then again I was watching old reviews so I'm not sure if that's still an ongoing problem? I'm not totally locked up on the idea of an iPhone so if anyone has a similar phone android or whatever as long as it's not Sony, please drop your experience. Also anyone with an iPhone 5s, do you like it? Is it a good size for you personally? I'm worried it will be too small for me as I'm used to slightly bulkier and bigger phones and I'm afraid that if it drops once it will shatter lol. I'm tempted to go for the iPhone 5s on Talk mobile because it offers slightly better deals for a lower price. Is talk mobile any good? Thanks in advance

    If you want a budget choice, look at the Motorola Moto G. Also Huawei P8 and the Honor 7 sold by Three Mobile.

    not huawei.

    never huawei.

    I would recommend my phone, the S6. Got it recently wth £40 upfront, £21 a month with 2GB of data. Steal of a deal imo

    Granted I have a 5C, not a 5S but they're actually really good phones. I've dropped mine more times than I can count and all it has is one small scratch. They're also bigger than you think when you've got hold of them.

    I've had Apple, Samsung and Sony and I believe Apple is the best out of them

    Also just waiting for my 6 to be delivered- £31 a month for 2gb data, 500 mins and unlimited texts with no upfront cost

    This all depends on your own preferences but if you want a phone that is similar in size as the 6, the best android options are:

    Samsung Galaxy S5
    Google (LG) Nexus 5X
    OnePlus 2
    Motorola Moto G (5th gen)
    HTC One M9
    Huawei P8

    The Sony Xperia Z3 and Z5 have hands down the best cameras and really good battery life (from what I've heard) though.

    If you want a larger phone in terms of screen size I would recommend :

    LG G4
    Motorola Moto X Style, Moto X Play, or Nexus 6
    Samsung Galaxy Note 4
    Huawei Mate 8
