£80 to spend on a smartphone, any suggestions?

Not looking for a contract just a PAYG phone,

Cheers.

IMO, the T-Mobile version looks nicer as well. Ignore my earlier recommendation, go for the Vivacity not the San Fran 2.

In all honesty? Save up...If you buy a smart-phone (not second hand), for 80 quid, you'll spend the whole time you own it wishing you'd saed a little bit longer.

Gotta second what Matt said, just skip the next 9 pints, or 2 takeaways etc, so long as you can justify the extra £30 spend it's worth it.

If t-mobile suits you best, this is the same phone with a different case/name effectively but it's got a £20 bonus of apps :) http://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/t-mobile-vivacity-android-2-3-smart-phone-payg-for-99-99-with-10-top-up-20-free-1070554

Cheers guys, it's a gift for xmas, been given £80 to spend but I wouldn't mind putting an extra £30 to get something worthwhile. Just a quick question, the PAYG T-Mobile Vivacity Black, says you pay £10 a month you get 100 free mins, unlimited texts or 60 free international, i take it that is's just pick one of those perks and then you also have the £10 credit to spend too?

Once again thanks for your replies, I don't have a clue about phones,

Yeah spend the extra money, whoever it's for will appreciate it, trust me :). I don't know about the T-Mobile allowances thing, but that sounds likely as to buy unlimited texts straight up on t-mobile costs a fiver. You might also be interested in unlimited (1gb), data for 6 months (1gb per month), for £20. Send "6 month web", to "441".
