    Best phones for 200 quid then would defintiely be the Xperia J or Galaxy Ace 2

    Dunno too much about the Sony except what I've read in reviews, but Mrs Slavia has the Galaxy Ace 2, and it's a brilliant phone. Sony has slightly bigger screen though

    I have the Xperia J. Wouldn't recommend it, freezes more than Torres in front of goal.

    Never buying a HTC phone again after my experience with mine. Cuts out and dies at least twice an hour now no matter how full or empty the battery is. Unless I feel the power off vibration, I don't know it's happened so I miss calls, texts and alarms. Going into Meteor to get it sorted tomorrow, but absolutely sick. Phones are shite nowadays.

    For the most part it's good, can be a bit sketchy sometimes but nothing I'd get too worked up over, with the deal they offer the pros outweigh the cons.

    The reviews on it were saying this happens a lot, and that the keyboard is shit too

    Only issue is when coming out of apps back to homescreens the screen goes blank, but after a second the icons appear again, other than that, does the job.

    Download a new Launcher from the app store Dan. Should fix it!

    Used to have one of them! Always did it very hard to explain to people when ya miss an alarm a few times for the sane reason! Throw it in the bin

    Okay need to get a new phone as my current phone is slowly dying a death. I have a Samsung Galaxy Ace at the moment. What I didn't like about this phone was the lack of memory for apps, the poor battery life and a great deal of freezing when using the built in applications of the phone. So what I want from my next phone is space to have a decent amount of apps, a decent battery life (although I know this isn't really applicable to smartphones), a good camera and video set up and an relatively easy user interface. Willing to spend 200-500 euro depending on the caliber of the phone. Don't really know if it'd be worth my while getting an Iphone or are there cheaper equivalents that are just as good? Any help greatly appreciated.

    I've been on 4g since last week. It's great. Dunno if I would pay a fiver a month after the free 6 months though.

    Dragging this slightly off topic to ask about Tablets. I'm looking to get one , mostly to be able to do stuff online quicker and simpler than with the laptop (which has become a crawler due to crap picked up downloading etc), watch films when travelling etc. What advice can the good folk here that own one offer? What's the minimum amount of internal memory you'd recommend? What works best for compatability for music, hooking up to the TV etc? I'm thinking I'd want one with a 10" screen for watching films. Don't need cellular connection, wifi only would be fine.

    I have an Android phone so have a natural bias towards an Android tablet as I feel they're better value for money than I-Phones and I'm guessing (admittedly with no evidence) the same is likely to be true of tablets. I know the Google Nexus isn't officially available here and tbh don't feel inclined to jump through all the hoops required to get one in from the UK. Are there any other devices out there you'd recommend? I've had good and bad experiences with Samsung smartphones so would be treading carefully with the Galaxy tablets.

    I know the IPad is generally regarded as a top piece of kit but I don't currently do Apple at all - how many of the more common apps do you have to pay for and does it get pissy if you try to use anything other than ITunes etc? Are there many good apps that aren't available on Android?

    As regards price, I'm flexible. I wouldn't pay 500 if there was something available for 200 less that did pretty much the same stuff.

    All help gratefully received.

    Use a Samsung Galaxy Tab 3, 8in screen and it's reasonably good. Have uploaded and edited photos as well as doing PowerPoint presentations with it. Movies look good on it to and can add external memory card to bring capacity up for movie/music storage.

    On the iPad pretty much all the apps you'll need for general browsing, watching movies etc are free. Works well with Netflix, spotify etc if you're a subscriber there
