    Hi there,

    So I'm selling items such as my 3DS, iPod and current phone to get a new phone as I haven't been successful with a job all summer regardless of trying countless times and applying nonstop. So I've estimated I'll have enough for the SGalaxy S6. Is this a good route to go down? I'll have it for a year and I'm heading into college, is this a good idea for a year?


    (Also, if I buy an unlocked phone, can I use my EE simcard in it?)

    The S6 is a perfectly reasonable phone. I'm personally using a Nexus 6P and liking it more than my old Samsung devices. There's a bunch of new releases on the horizon to watch out for too. And when they hit older devices will likely drop in price so I'd wait for another month or two.

    A rather interesting device that we might see soon is the ZTE Axon 7. Might be worth checking out, I'm super excited for it.

    If you buy a phone that is network/carrier unlocked then yes an EE sim will work. Keep in mind most modern phones use micro sim cards nowadays so if you have a larger sim you'll need another solution (unless you're willing to risk cutting your card down).
