 Cheap & Cheerful Mobile Phones - Bromptonaut
Until Tuesday I had a 3rd Gen Moto G Smartphone. A little bit big at around 5.8" but just fitted in my shirt pocket. Unfortunately I lost on Tuesday. It must have been in the house but even a dedicated search by Mrs B has not located it. Battery flat so won't ring. Maybe it ended up in the rubbish?

I don't want to spend a lot (eg Google Pixel) and definitely Android; I don't do Apple. Pretty much everything is 6" plus so well over 150mm tall. If I wanted a tablet I'd buy one!!

A Samsung Galaxy A20e looked to fit the bill but nobody has it in stock. There are a handful of Sony Experia models but they're old designs and again, difficult to find.

There are a couple of cheap as chips small form factor phones like a Alcatel 1 or Nokia G10.

I only use the phone for calls/texts WhattsApp - mostly using the web app with a desktop PC - and for streaming music to Bluetooth speakers. And in the car I use Google Maps - with Android Auto in the Skoda.

Given the price of either is well under £100 I'm tempted to chance it and see how I get on.

Does anyone else use a cheap phone? Or more generally, What Does the Panel think?
