Since joining Giffgaff I have not really been able to make use of the free mobile internet due to me still running my old but very decent Samsung D600!
But I have been looking at the new crop of smartphones out there and there are a couple that take my fancy..
They are all Android phones and very smart but all at the low end of the market unfortunately, "cos pennies are tight"
Phones on my list are
Orange San francisco £99 and can get it unlocked for a fiver I think!
LG Optimus 540 £109 again on Orange but not sure if can get it unlocked as not looked into this.."Advice welcome"
HTC Wildfire £139 on o2 but think I can get it unlocked, although being o2 it will run on gg
Well you have the brief your mission if you choose to accept it is to give me information on said phones, advantages and disadvantages of each would be nice, I know lots of you are running these phones so should have plenty of feedback hopefully!
I'm also open to any other new phones out there if you feel I have left a particularly good phone out and its within that price range..
Looking forward to your posts people!
I've had LG Optimus aabout 6wks.Great android phn.Some of the apps r fantastic ie.anti-virus which scans phn every time u put it on.Can't fault phn except maybe screen a tad sensitive,but not enuf to bother u,or me anyway.You'll still be able to browse internet no prob.When set up for internet you mgt find screen goes blenk at some point,if so you'll find it still says browser top left of screen,if it does press and it'll take u on to browser.All in all i find ia great phn and iv'e had quite a few.
If it's a budget android you are looking for see this Huawei Ideos..A smart phone thats due in the UK soon (by the end of the month hopefully)...It runs Android 2.2 (Froyo) .....
Cost will be between £99 and £129..........Should be worth waiting for if pennies are tight...Maybe worth waiting even if they are not.....
Ive got the xperia x10. However it runs 1.6. I really dont know enough about android at the moment to see the difference between 1.6, 2.1 or 2.2. As for for decent phones I know a few people who have the LG optimus and they are all very happy with it. In fact if this Xperia hadnt come up I was about to buy one.
