    The wife is looking to upgrade her old Samsung and we're not the sharpest at phones.
    She is looking for something good to load and listen to music on and look at facebook .
    She would like to spend about £20 per month max and we have been advised to buy something that runs android so she doesn't get locked into iTunes.
    Any advice would be much appreciated.

    Is she bothered about the camera? Any particular network?

    I saw the title and thought the thread was going to be about some kind of swap job.

    How disappointing. :(

    as close to the market leaders you can possibly get for less than a third of what samsung htc and iphones cost

    I was recommended the One Plus 3. Flagship model from a small Chinese brand. Specs are comparable to the Galaxy S7 with half the price. Very highly rated phones.

    Still 300plus for the phones mind, starting to get nearer the higher end phones now they've had relative success in the market
