If you’re getting a bit fed up with your current phone, there’re plenty of offers on the market to help you choose something new. We’ve got a list of some of the top deals depending on your needs – from uploading great selfies at music festivals, to the best value deals while you watch your pennies, and bigger data options for more Instagram and Facebook updates.
Best for Festivals
Old school this may be, but it’s a cracking wee phone for festivals – in other words, it’s cheap, fairly robust, and doesn’t really matter if it goes missing. The rubber keyboard on this Samsung helps to keep it clean, as well as letting it see off bumps and scratches. There’s no internet, but it has a camera (great for using on that selfie stick while watching Ed Sheeran) and it will last up to a month without charging. It’s SIM-free, so just chuck a free SIM in it, give your mates your temporary number, and you’re guaranteed not to get lost among the revellers this summer.
It’s sturdy, compact and has a battery that will last a month – you can’t go wrong with this PAYG Nokia handset. There’s also access to most of the important apps and features, such as Facebook and Twitter, so brill for uploading pics of you in your wellies at TITP.
This trendy Lumia runs off the very smooth Windows 8.1 operating system and has loads of features including 8GB mass memory and a four inch display. With EE, pay just £10 every month for 500MB data, 150 minutes and unlimited texts.
If you’re into games, this Xperia’s Snapdragon 400 processor makes it ideal for 3D gaming, and it’s excellent for taking photos with its 8 megapixel camera. You can unlock thousands of apps with Android Jelly Bean too. Pay nothing upfront with Virgin, and for £10 a month you’ll get 250 minutes, unlimited texts and 250MB of Data. It’s a great deal.
Best for 4G
With both 3G and 4G, LG’s Spirit is great if you enjoy downloading Swifty’s latest tunes at high speeds. For most users, download speeds of initial 4G networks are around five to seven times faster than those for existing 3G networks. For £13 a month with Three, you’ll get this shiny new phone with 500MB of data and 100 minutes.
Best for data
If you’re finding that you’re always exceeding your monthly data limit on Instagram and Facebook, it’s worthwhile getting your hands on this iPhone. For £49.99 each month, you’ll get a whopping 10GB data, unlimited minutes and texts. So you can stay up to date with your pals’ selfies without going over your monthly allowance.
