    Hello everyone, so I'm 16 next week and I wanted a new phone buy my parents have stood their grounds saying I have a year left on my contract and it's gonna be over £200 to pay it off plus a new phone. So I totally get why they won't buy me a new one. However I'm hoping for a job this summer.

    Anyway, I'm just not happy with my phone anymore, I contemplated using my iPod and connecting it to my phones hotspot cause I have 2GB of data which is one of the only good things. But my iPod doesn't even have a back camera :/. So I tried resetting my phone, reinstalling apps, cleaning it, using software booster apps and cleaning it regularly (i.e. clearing cache's etc...) But it does nothing! I use my phone for social media mainly and snapchat lags like hell I can't even take a video with my phone on snapchat. Having said that, the camera is good.

    Okay off topic now, but I just don't know what to do. I'm at the bottom of the phones pile now lmao. It's getting old, literally. It's getting slower and slower and I feel like I've got another year of this garbage! I don't think I can go to college with this?...

    Opinions/advice?

    Start saving whatever form of money/allowance you get now and hope a job comes around sooner rather than later. In the meantime, search for custom ROMs for the Galaxy S5 Mini, particularly ones that claim to be able to improve performance. That should at least make using that phone a bit more tolerable.
