    I've got a moto g 3rd generation.
    Waterproof, decent camera which I use to take clear pictures of the whiteboard all the time. Can get through a normal day without it even being fully charged most of the time. Can put an SD card in to expand the memory, you can put apps on the SD card which is useful.
    I have it for £13 a month on three, 500mb data (some minutes, can't remember how many, rarely use them).

    Hey TSRians :ciao:
    So my contract is near to end - ending in may though but i can't wait to get a new one :dance:
    i am very confused -i dunno which phone should i get:question::question::question:
    i am on a EE contract pay monthly- 500MB with unlimited text and 500min calls
    currently, i have Nokia which has NOTHING in it- no quality camera, no apps NOTHING - can't even download TSR app :cry2:
    so my requirements are:
    high resolution of the camera - so i can take pictures of the whiteboard because sometimes i can't be bothered writing all that stuff
    MUST be Andriod - regretting having a Nokia one but now i need android operating system so i can have exciting apps like TSR and study related ones :yeah:
    plus long battery life - long enough that can, at least, a full day
    in terms of size - not too big nor too small - compact size is fine
    budget wise - £20-25 per month - if less than that then its fab :cute:
    Can any TSRians recommend me any phone?
    Which one do you have and how is it???
    :top:
    If you are looking to buy a fairly cheap phone, you might want to look at the ulefone power (http://www.androidheadlines.com/2015...ry-in-tow.html). If you want to spend a bit more, look at the lg g4/ samsung s6.

    how awful it is- on a scale 1-10 (10 being the best)


    but i am on EE contract
    3 or 4, today the battery on mine was especially terrible and was losing 10% with me just being on snapchat ¬_¬ It charges really fast if you use the included charger but still not very helpful if you're out all day. If you can find the S7 on a cheap deal I'd go for that instead

    All you have to do is order a new one then ring up and ask to cancel and ask for your pac code, takes like 5 minutes and could save you a lot of money

    oneplus 2?

    I remember trying to buy this phone back in October. Except:

    1) Horrendous invite system before you could even buy the damn thing. Upon which, there is a good 3-6 weeks delivery time
    2) You could opt for a 16gb model at £230, which was absolutely useless. 64gb was £280, and if you wanted swappable back covers that would bump the price up to £320...
    3) USB type-c charger. If you ever lose it, you're screwed
    4) Customer support. Good luck getting any.
    5) To try and advertise this phone as a "flagship killer", I'm assuming that was the reason OnePlus decided to cut corners on quality such as speed, camera quality, etc. But for a £320 price point, I just bought an actual flagship and called it a day.

    Sony Xperia if you can afford it

    Otherwise, LG G4 and Samsung Galaxy S6 are pretty much tied in terms of camera quality (G4 is easier on the pockets)
