Contract is up and the thing I’ve had for the last couple of years (iPhone SE, I think?) is just about knackered. I have next to zero interest in phones and know even less about what’s decent, so need some recommendations from you good knowledgeable people.
The default choice would be an iPhone 7, but not a huge fan of iPhones - this is the first one I’ve had and think I’d have preferred another Android. What would be a similarly priced (no more than £30 or so a month) alternative? What’s the equivalent Samsungy type thing? Huawei P20 any good? None of those housebrick sized things either, please.
Even if they do, we get a second Harru for free. Everyone’s a winner.
(My gut says China aren’t actually as interested in individual’s data in the west as Western companies are - they’re more interested in bigger strategic projects. Mind you, I have a Google Pixel, so what do I know about keeping my data safe from The Man!)
Tbf, this one has been ‘fine’ and if it wasn’t for it starting to fall apart - I’d just carry on with it. It’s starting to run out of storage and I have to wiggle the charger around and pin the lead under the phone in just the right position to get it to charge though.
If I’m going to get a new phone/new contract then I may as well get something half decent and modern.
If you’ve got the cash handy, I’d recommend dropping down to sim only and buying a new or decent second hand handset. The 2016ish generation seem to do the same things as the new ones. And you don’t have to sacrifice the headphone jack if you want an iPhone
I am temporarily stuck on an iPhone SE after having a Samsung Galaxy S4 and S6 before that. I utterly despise my iPhone, and that’s coming from somebody who hasn’t used anything but Mac computers in a decade. Definitely getting an S10 as soon as I can (although that latest Huawei beast is tempting too)
