What's The Best Android Smartphone I Can Get Under £300!?

Postby Jenilynn » Sat Jul 29, 2017 1:20 pm

Hey all,

Currently I've owned the Samsung Galaxy Ace for just over two years now and use Giff Gaff as my network provider. When I first got the phone the apps and internet worked fine, but now over time and replacing the battery twice, it's starting to lag with the improvement in app sizes and interface. There's also only 158mb of internal storage which is pathetic nowadays.

So... I spent £190 on this phone 2 years ago and know I have to spend at least in the region of £300 to get a decent smartphone that will keep me happy for the next two years.

Is there an Android Smartphone out there that has good internet connectivity, camera (flash optional), internal storage at 2gb minimum?

I've been quite loyal to Samsung too with have their standard phones throughout my college years, and with now working a job where Social Media is key to my role, I need someone I can trust and rely on.

Would the Samsung Galaxy Ace 2 do? Or shall I wait for the Ace 3 which doesn't seem much of a step-up? Or wait until Apple unveil their budget iPhone!?

All the help I can get is much appreciated and links to reviews would be cool too!

Thanks!
Jenilynn

£300 won't get you the latest flagship models but you would be MUCH better of buying the Galaxy s3 than any of the galaxy ACE models.

That's the previous generation of flagship model from Samsung and it's still far superior to many of the "budget" phones you can get these days.

Hope this helps

I think the best choices you have right now are Xperia SP, Nexus 4, Galaxy S3 and waiting for apple to release their budget iphone. Among the currently available phones I like Galaxy S3 the best but the price is still higher than 300 I guess. Then there are Nexus 4 and Xperia SP; Nexus 4 is faster, has better screen and better camera but it lacks a good battery life and the storage is limited to either 8GB(around 6.8GB user available) or 16GB(around 14.8 user available) and you can't expand it. On the other hand Xperia SP performs very good but still slower than Nexus 4, it has narrow viewing angles but it has stellar battery life and expandable storage you can also connect a PS3 dual shock controller to it. I myself like Xperia SP better.

Try reading reviews on dedicated websites like gsmarena.com etc. before deciding what to get.

For that money, you can get the simply amazing Samsung Galaxy S3. It's still one of the greatest Android smartphones out there even though it's been replaced by the newer Galaxy S4. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/SAMSUNG-GALAXY...

There is a phone at Vodafone called the Vodafone smart like a replica of the Samsung Galaxy S3 and S3 mini. For more info http://www.vodafone.com/content/index/about/what/devices/smart3.html . The vodafone smart 3 is around £90 and the mini is around £50. I hope this helps.
