Buying new phone

1 minute ago, AndreLebrao said:

I only had major brans phones, but theyre too expensive, I was thinking about Xiaomi and this seems a nice option, thanks! The biggest problem with my lg g5 is the battery, sometimes I have to recharge twice a day

No worries, do have a look at a few reviews in depth before buying though.. I usually get mid-range phones that are more budget friendly but still good enough for what I need. I have no problems recommending this phone at all, I was and still am pretty amazed at this phone's capabilities at such a reasonable cost... hell I even thought about buying another in case something happens to this one xD

What sort of things do you do/play on your phone and I can try them on mine then to see how they perform?  I don't expect to have any problems though, I haven't found anything that has even slowed it down yet. It's fingerprint scanner is actually pretty good and fairly fast, I have enabled it as security for a few apps too as I hate typing passwords on my phone. As for it's built in "scanner" app like for QR codes and such, I was blown away with how fast that focuses and picks up the code, it was almost instant. you barely get the box in view of the camera before it's picked it up.

 

OK, I won't go on more, but please look at some in-depth reviews, hope you found this helpful anyway.

I really like my moto G5s Plus. Working very well for 300$. The standard G5 Plus that came out a bit earlier this year they say is very nice and will save you a bit more but I haven't tested that one

I have a Xiaomi redmi note 4 and have found it awesome.. only around £130, but don't let the price fool you as this phone is really solid. I can get around 4-5 days use out of the battery at low usage easily.. even medium-high usage last me 2-3 days. Have a look at some reviews... but IMO it's a brilliant price/performance ratio. It's not the fastest obviously, but sits around midway at around 60000 antutu score out of it's snapdragon 625. I even like the miui OS launcher, which has soem very nice features.
