I would like a smart phone but as i am on pay as you go & spend less than £10 a month i don't see the point really, i would also like a tablet but as i would probably never use it & it would probably end up in a cupboard, i don't see the point in getting one of those.  Crying

It got me thinking is their anything you would like but probably wouldn't buy.

Yes, definitely, a Playstation, I know I'd play it like mad for a month and then not turn it on again, I've managed to resist the urge so far...

No problem Joe, you buy it and in a months time I'll take it off your hands for a crisp £50 note (only if it's boxed though)

I am using both, every day, many hours a day sometimes. I don't see why £10 a month would be an obstacle. One of my daughters uses my old iPhone 4 32GB and gets unlimited data for about £10 on a rolling monthly contract that she can stop at any time.

Plenty of 'last year's model' smartphones out there that won't cost an arm or a leg.

I really want a 4K projector, but simply can't justify the cost - especially with no real content!

I don't regret my iPhone 5 one bit, its delightful.  iPad is looking pretty dusty though...

RE: I want one

For what it's worth, I have an Android phone and I'd be just as content with a "dumb" phone. I very rarely use it to browse the internet and, to date, I've downloaded precisely zero apps. I own the phone because it came free when I renewed my contract. Unless you can identify important ways a smart phone will enhance your life, I'd hang on to your money.
