Hi you guys, what is the best phone for about £100 and it has to be very easy to use. I am just starting my Xmas shopping. Cheers
Main AV Setup: Panasonic 50VT65 TV, Pioneer Bdp-lx71, Pioneer Vsx-lx70, B&W FPM Series, B&W PV1, Optimum AV300 AV Stand, QED Silver Anniversary XT Speaker Cable & Chord Silver Plus HDMI Cables. Gadgets: iPad Air & iPhone 4S.
Presumably as it's for a present you want a brand new phone?
Just seen the Nokia Lumia 610, which reads like it is easy to use. Any more suggestions? Cheers.
I have also seen the HTC Salsa and Samsung Galaxy Ace. Ease of use is my main priority.
Think I have decided on the Nokia Lumia for £80 with upgrade. Good choice?
It depends who it's for. Obviously as it's a defunct OS there will be no upgrades and possibly future apps won't work well.
But it's a good device and easy to use.
So it depends on the person...Someone interested mainly in a phone/young/ etc then yep, I could recommend it, but someone older who is more of a gamer then there are a number of cheap Android devices under 100.
“Out beyond ideas of wrong and right, there is a field.
I'll meet you there."
I bought a Galaxy Y as a stop-gap. Hate it...
Synology DS212J-> AppleTV-> rDAC->Naim Nait5i. Dynaudio Audience 52SE
Sony BDPS370 / YouView ->Yamaha RXV1065-> Pana TH42PX80B plasma.
Yep, I think I am keeping away from the Samsung's, the person I am buying for has a cheaper Samsung than the Y and just can't get on with it either.
I think the Nokia Lumia 800 might be in contention too, does anyone know the difference in terms of ease of use between it and the cheaper 610? Cheers.
Recently got an 800 with upgrade,1st new phone in about 4 years and it's my first smartphone.
Very little by way of instructions but I'm up and running with it & like most modern tech it does give a few tips when starting.
Menus are good and you can find your way around
I use it for a bit of everything,not heavy teen social or business use, no gaming and it works fine but I suspect the battery is not the best + it's built in so can't be changed.
16gb and no memory slot so you're stuck with that.
I like it but I'm not desperate about a mobile just need it to work and it does for me.
Stuff: Panasonic 46gt,110 blu ray.Yamaha YSP2200.Humaxt2 with hard drive.ArcamCD73 + A65 with B & W 603s3,Project something for vinyl + PC and CYP dac.
Cheers Bertie, that is great - thanks!
I think I am on the Samsung Galaxy Ace at £80 with upgrade now. I saw a Sony also today that didnt seem too bad.
huawei g300 still is the best for a bit under 100
Hadnt heard of this one, so I have just been checking it out, reviews rate it very highly, cheers!
The Windows Phone OS is certainly very easy to use, so as a budget phone for basic 'smart' usage the Nokia 800 sounds like a decent bet. Haven't seen that particular one though...
