Hi guys,


Sadly my current handset is on its last leg. Here is the task : best value for money for £150 tops !

Ideally 32gb storage. Not too fussed about processing power. A 5"+ screen would be good. NFC is a must.

Thanks in advance for your recommendations.

What about samsung A5. I've had one and they are a really nice phone. Includes nfc and has a 5 inch screen. Storage is only 16GB but you can always add more with a micro sc card.

Hi all!

Cubot also do some great handsets with specs that you find on mid range phones at some great prices to. I'm about to upgrade my girlfriend's and my phone which is the Cubot Max which has 32Gb to the Cubot Max 2 at £149.99. For that price you get Octa Core CPU, 64Gb Storage, 4Gb RAM and a whopping 6.8 inch screen with it running Android 9 to.

They also do some other nicely spec'ed handsets for a little cheaper with 32Gb storage to.


Hope this helps towards your decisions of which handset you would like?

My Huawei phone is the best ever @cyrilhaessig.   My next one will be Huawei also, provided everything is OK with Google etc.   You should be able to find one that does all you need for £150.  I understand Xiaomi phones are good, but a lot of them don't have NFC, so beware of that !  It's an essential for me too.


Good luck, whatever you decide.
