    Sick of my Windows phone

    Looking to go Android. Budget is limited though. £150 max i would say.

    Quite a few out there but no idea when it comes to phones. I dont play games on them. I would like the biggest phone possible for my budgie (lol).

    A decent camera on it would be a bonus. Seen some on Amazon but not sure as i guess they come from abroad As much cheaper than the High street?

    Xiaomi Mi A1 for that budget. Great device for the money, else the Mi A2 if you can afford a little more.

    Re: Sick of my Windows phone

    I would go with a Huawei, something like the c10. They have decent build quality and lots of storage.
    I have several friends what have gone from Samsung and Iphone to Huawei and they have been happy with them and the money they saved.

    I second the Xiaomi phones,and if you want to buy from the UK then also consider the Huawei/Honor phones.

    If it's sold in the UK by a UK company then you have loads of rights under the Consumer Rights Act 2015 and I'd have no problem myself as long as it's a reputable company. It's semi dodgy imports you need to be cautious about. If you buy from a foreign seller then I'd assume you have no warranty.

    i can quote the honor 9 as being a good phone, my friend has had his for over 6 months and has had only the issue of loosing his charger at home XD. Honestly, look out at carphone warehouse for deals. You could always go to cex and get something like a Motorola x4 or xforce (it is basically in breakable)
