Battery & front facing camera is shit but otherwise a very good phone.

Oneplus One 3T is supposed to be very good for the money.

My Galaxy Note 2 has packed in so need a new phone, thinking of getting a Nexus 6P, but don't want to pay over £300, anyone know where is the best place to get one? Ideally would like the 64gb version but may struggle at that price.

I got a 64gb off gumtree for £300 in perfect condition. AV Forums is also worth a look. great phone.

Anyone got a very good condition phone they looking to sell, budget of £250, would prefer a Nexus 6P or Galaxy Note 3-6

I'm on a G4 and it's been excellent for £160 on giffgaff. Mrs is getting a G5 but I'm happy to stick with this now it has the Nougat update. Makes paying £300 for another brand, especially the other Chinese brands, look stupid to be quite honest.

Got the G4 too, only knock against it is the camera (had an lg before and the image stabilisation was great, miss it), wouldn't go for anything pricier

Thought the camera on the G4 was one of the best features, the aperture control for starters is great.

Actually I was thinking of the Plus model, worth the extra 20 quid imo.

Just copped the Chuwi HiBox - Windows and Android dual boot TV box for £97 shipped.
Decent bit of kit.

Anyone pre orders the S8? I'm not overly impressed but left with no choice really, my z3 compact is fucked I had my heart set on note 7 but have had to wait all this time for something half decent, I nearly went for the one plus 3t but don't want to pay up front and 02s prices are a joke

my z3c was dying gradually reaching the 2 yr mark. first shitty battery, then over sensitive screen, eventually bluetooth/wifi was fried and now it wouldnt even turn on. Swear I am never buying a sony again. I am quite tempted by the s8 too, but camera is not much of an update. Probably will go for s7 when the price drops further.

Been using a One+ 2 which is faultless but my Trump hands struggle with the width (and it's not a particularly wide phoneCry).

Bit of a left field choice but I'm into the new Blackberry KeyOne that's out soon. Slim enough to use one-handed, Android OS, hardware keypad and 2 day battery life. Looks great too.
