I kept an s7 for a good few years having bought it outright. Was a brilliant phone that did everything I needed. Eventually the battery packed in.

Now have a One Plus 8 Pro, which is even better. Hoping to nurse this one through 5 years!

S21 Ultra any good? I have the S20 Ultra. Sad thing about buying a top of the range phone is, one year later, a better version comes out

Work is chucking me a Galaxy A40. It'll be mostly locked down as a Government device but is it any good? Particularly the screen; had an A5 before and it was way too bright even in night mode.

Been thinking about the note 20 but does it have the bloatware Samsungs usually have ?

If you're moderately tech saavy you can remove the bloat using a tool like To view the link you have to Register or Login or you can disable Samsung apps through the Android applications settings page.

There are other tools which cover more devices. There was a new one that was released relatively recently but I couldn't find it. Generally speaking these tools work quite well. Worst situation is you have to do a factory reset.

Can anyone recommend a handset only phone for about 125?

I see you can get a cheap Samsung or Motorola. My current phone is really old so most things will feel like an upgrade.

I would also take a look at some of the Chinese Android phones.

The Honor 10 Lite/Huawei P Smart (virtually the same phone) or the Oppo A5 are around your price range.

I've had an Oppo Reno Z for nearly 2 years and, for the money it cost, has been amazing. The battery still easily lasts 2 days

Can anyone recommend a website that sells refurbished phones?

My phone's Gmail app no longer let's me open attachments. I want it to die so badly, then I can justify getting a new one.

CEX* (Second hand but with a two year warranty)
To view the link you have to Register or Login

Amazon now do 'renewed' phones.
To view the link you have to Register or Login

Just picked two with reasonable warranty or return policies otherwise try:

Handtec
Music Magpie*
EnviroPhone
XS Items* eBay (particularly when eBay offer 20% off deals)
Most of the major service provider i.e. O2 do refurbs as well

* I've bought or sold with these with no issues

I used to jailbreak my Android (and Apple) devices and completely reload them with custom builds and all sorts of fairly low level tools. I remember my lad being in awe of the fact that I had 256,000,000 (or something) gold on Hill Climb Racer, after I froze the game and sector edited the code on the fly

I can't be arsed now.

I stopped doing it when Barclays stopped working on rooted phones.

I've used Music Magpie a few times for secondhand phones, not had a problem and their "good" grade was a lot better than I was expecting. Don't expect an original screen on a refurbed phone though, I imagine they'll all use cheap knock-offs.
