    Xiaomi Mi A1

    £120 new online
    Released in the last 12 months
    Android One so guaranteed updates for the forseeable future with stock and latest version of Android
    5.5" screen (bigger than both Moto C and Nokia 1) so better for failing eyes
    1080p screen so good resolution too

    The specs of Xiaomi phones are really good though I'm not sure if their hardware quality is robust.

    Moto G5 is a decent smartphone with lower rate. Or you can buy cheaper Android phone made by china company on ebay or Aliexpress

    Here is a comparison of the Moto C and Nokia 1:

    I would go for the Nokia 1 as it ships with the latest version of Android,but in its cut down Go version(which is meant to be more efficient). Tutuapp 9apps Showbox Also apparently there is a 20% code on eBay which is active later today:
