I need a phone for less than £600 (solved)

Update: bought one now, thank you

I know there are loads of posts about this kind of thing but I’ve really stressed myself out searching. Looking for an Android phone for no more than £600. Want new not second hand.

I would like (in order of priority)

To be able to take good quality photos (really the main thing tbh)
A reasonable battery life
No edge screen bullshit (has that stopped now?)

If there is a phone that costs more that takes absolutely phenomenal pictures compared to anything in the above price range I might consider it, but there would be need to be a big difference.

Thanks in advance x

Google Pixel whatever it is (I have a 4a 5G). Can buy direct from google and pay in monthly installments. Camera is excellent, can get more than a day out of it with normal usage.


One of these two, depending on which you like the look of better:

Samsung Galaxy A52s.

Big screen. Lovely resolution.
Has great back cameras for photos.
Battery lasts all day easily. I get to the end of the day and it is at 50% after heavy use.
Has the main security patches from Samsung and Google for three years.
Good speakers.
Has a proper headphone jack.

Seafoam because it’s one of the great Fender colours


This is awesome Intel. Also in the market for a new phone but can’t afford to buy outright.

Yeah, means I can order straight away and not have to keep dealing with charging my P20 every two hours while I sort the money. Great stuff.

Ordered. This place makes my life so much better. Thank you x

I got a Pixel something or other. I don’t like the plastic back, and though it’s the smallest reasonable phone I could find it’s still too big.

Aside from that seems fine.

I’ve got the new Pixel (seafoam) and I love it. Takes GREAT photos


I’d probably buy the latest Fairphone if that was my budget

I need a house for less than £3.5m

Also I get more than a day out if my P10 still, think the trick is not installing loads of apps

You can buy one off Google in monthly installments

I’d already bought one, but appreciate the thought!

The battery has completely given up since last month - was absolutely fine until then. Tried a new charger just in case but no luck. Didn’t seem worth trying a repair given it’s close to end of life anyhow.

Oh probably a fault then, I hope my previous message didn’t sound condescending btw, it wasn’t meant to.

Seriously, though, can you not buy any phone for £600…or is that the joke? You can buy great android phones for £200, easily.
