Not sure if it's a bit more than what you're looking for though.
After years on iPhone, I got one of these in the January sales. I love it. I had tried a Huawei P9 before and thought android was clunky and unreliable. The G6 just works, looks good, and does everything my old iphone did, easily and smoothly and quickly. For the price, I can't see how you can get better.

I am still exploring android. The only downside I have is that as a Mac user at home, Adroid File transfer is a bit ugly and basic. Does anyone use an alternative? I'm thinking especially of transferring music (I use itunes to make playlists etc) to the phone, but also files generally.

Dropped my Oneplus 3 today. Waiting for £50 replacement screen to arrive, but they're apparently a pain to replace without breaking.

Not sure I can really justify spending £600 on a 6t.

Just bought one on mobiles.co.uk. There's a few 24 month contracts that are quite reasonable if you don't need lots of data. £150 up front and £23 a month for 4gb on vodafone. I recon it works out about £350 for the phone.

I like your maths

23 times 24 plus 150 = about 350

Minus what you'd typically pay for a sim only 24 month 4gb unlimited min/contract (15 x 24 = 360). In effect paying about 350 for the phone

The foldable phone race has the usual suspects jumping in. Obviously, $2k for a 1st gen phone is ridiculous and it looks like Apple is going to combat this with a 3 panel foldable phone.

Anyone got a oneplus 6t? Is it any good, would it be worth me hanging on for a 7? I'm assuming the 7 will be 5g compatible and the price will jump significantly

Happy with my one. Only annoying thing is no headphone socket. When it's on charge you can only use headphones with Bluetooth.

That's the reason I went for the 6 and because I wanted a physical fingerprint scanner. Oh, and it's £100 cheaper for basically the same phone.

Yes. Very nice it is too. Makes my Honor 9 look positively clunky. I had no real reason to upgrade but I did anyway. Now own two Honor phones and a Huawei tablet. God bless those Chinese. The CIA will definitely be after me now.

My Nexus 6p is really acting a fool now. It shuts down at 50% battery and when I reboot it, it shows around 18%. The battery life was crap before, only getting about 2 hours of use. I'm heading back to the US on Sunday for 3 months and will probably try to buy a new one before I leave. S10+ is a little too expensive and I'm still hoping for Mate20 price drops with the P30 announcement.

Not considered getting a new battery? Can be had for less than £10 and can change yourself in ~30 mins.

I already had somebody change the battery a year and a half ago for about 7000 yen. No way am I gonna try and do it with that tricky ass camera glass backstop. The guy last year ended up having the glass break on him and he had to replace it. The phone is going on 4 years, so I'm due for a new one.
