Other half's Oneplus 2 has finally reached the end of its life, and she's toying between a 6, and waiting for a 6t.

Any idea how much the 6t will be costing? I can't seem to find any info anywhere. The only 6s left are the bigger, more expensive versions

Honor 8x is worth a look. Had the 6x for a while now and it's been very good.

I have had the Honor 9 for about a year now and have been very happy with it, so wouldn't certainly recommend their phones.

Somwhere in the region of 500-550 I think is the expectation.

Then I had and ELEPHONE S8 which was great but I dropped it that was sub 200.

Now have MiA as mentioned above.

There are quite a few others - All with reviews online etc.

Definitely worth a look.
They phone home way too often for my liking and do all sorts of naughty things like override your DNS settings for hidden system services. Very shady stuff I am not comfortable with. Id consider one as a burner phone but would never ever put any personal data on one.

It isnt in the same league.

I wont say precisely which one, but a certain Chinese group who make mobile phones recently sent an email around to all their staff saying these are the Wests red lines and these are the ones we are prepared to break.

Which was awkward because the non-Chinese employees got it too.

Same here. Often get a couple of dodgy looking Chinese blokes following me round Sainsbury's though. I take it your wouldn't was a Trump style misspeak?

I've pre-ordered one, but can't pick it up until the 4th when my upgrade is due. It looks amazing. The free Huawei GT smartwatch and wireless charger is also massive bonus.

Help please:

I have the S8 which I haven't been too impressed with (despite loving the S4 and S6 previously). I cracked the S8 screen which I had never done before and now the battery lasts only hours. I currently pay 47 a month for 3gb

EE are currently offering a variety of Huawei phones with 10gb of data. The one that is enticing me the Huawei mate 20 Lite for 43. It will cost me 300 to buy out my contract but with this offer I also get Nintendo Switch which I intended to get. I therefore thought it was worth trading my phone for 80 and doing that offer.


The guys in the shop were advising against trading in my phone though and said I should get it repaired (quoted around 220 everywhere). Am I missing something?

To me it makes perfect sense to pay 300 to get a new phone and the Nintendo Switch on a lower contract to what I was paying? What am I missing?

I can get a 2 year all in deal on an S9 for 800, or the same deal on iphone 8 but for 1080.

I've never had an android but this seems like it's definitely worth switching over from Apple... right?

This would be to replace my iphone 6 which is 3.5 years old, and the battery is now weaker than Andy Dorman.

There are equally as good phones as the S9 for much cheaper IMO.

You can get the Motorola G6 Play for 99 on the GiffGaff website (unlocked). I got two days out of the battery, and the specs are unbeatable at this price, comes with Android 8.

For those who aren't interested in paying hundreds of pounds for a phone!

Great phone for the price!!

The Huawei P20 lite is just over 200 in the sales at the moment in some place, ridiculous price for a great phone.
