    @8ob pretty much the same reasons I went for this one, agreed it's not the most discrete of phones, but it suits my needs, and frankly I'm not a fan of phones in general, to me it's just another tool, i really only use for work so needs to be robust more than discrete (fragile)....

    works fine, and at the price I could have 4 or 5 before I got to anywhere near the Iphone prices..

    I'm looking for a new basic unlocked touchscreen phone , I only pay around £30 for my phones as they get busted in no time and I only use them for texts, calls, camera and occasionally the WIFI if I want a food voucher when I'm out .

    Any recommendations ?

    I phone 4
    Samsung Galaxy mini
    Alcatel Pixi 4
    Alcatel U3

    Not if you want to save money, that's one of the most expensive phones on the market right now. :clapping:

    Stunning pics though, are they yours?

    Completely agree with Slim, I have had 3 oneplus's a 1 a 2 and now a 5t, the 5t is 2 years old and still working like it was the day I bought it. For referance the 1 was stolen, the 2 got upgraded as I got a bonus and my gf at the time broke her phone, so I got the 5t and she had my 2.

    Having wasted plenty of money in the past buying the latest and greatest bit of IT kit, I now buy stuff that is last year's model. Almost always much cheapness. I have a Galaxy S8 right now and in a couple of years I will get the S10, when the S12 is released :laughing:

    Pretty much what I do but buy recon phones.
    Saves me a fortune. Don't expect more than a few years from a phone in.my trade so they work well.
    Paid 180 for 2 pixel XL 64gb both near immaculate. (£90 each)

    That's what I tell myself I'll do but when it comes to it, I just need the new features of the latest model. :doh:

    Yes they're my pics and it is expensive, but I bought it for the camera another tool in my arsenal, I rarely take landscapes with my camera now the drone and phone have that covered. I went to the tropical world in Leeds the other day and it was so humid my camera just kept steaming up so I had to use my phone

    i just rummage in the cast off drawer for whatever old phone Daughter or Wife have cast off.....on a frankenstein mix of bits that is 3 Moto g s. which is a good phone though lacking in internal memory if you have to have lots and lots of Apps.

    I would suggest one of the Samsung tough phones. I have a basic one that does all I need & darn near indestructible. The internet isn't great but I don't use that anyway but they do a smartphone type version which could suit your needs.

    Motorola g7 power.....has to be the power version as it has the larger battery. my phone goes for 3-4 days without a charge....pretty impressive....5000 mAh battery is the version I have.

    Not cheap as chips....but not silly money...around £160 I think on Amazon.

    Doesn't support wireless charging but not much else I've missed and it's plenty quick enough for me.

    I have a Xiaomi Redmi Note 7. Best phone I've ever had. 128gb memory, so no need for micro sd cards.

    Motorola Moto-1 - excellent

    Blackview BV9000 is my current weapon of choice - I haven't smashed it up yet.

    can I ask what seller you used as I've had a few issues with supposedly "reconditioned" phones in the past.

    Just saw this on a programme this evening...designed to be repairable with bits that can be changed.

    I did laugh though....what next....repairable washing machines like we used to have 40 years ago!

    Wife's came from here.
    Couple of scratches which were in line with the grade. Other than that perfect.
