Not really, in all honesty. How much is the one you're looking at? After all, everything has its right price...

£250, what would you recommend for about the same price on android
thanx

HTC Evo 3D from Asda for £207 would be my recommendation. Dual-core processor, it's getting an offical ICS update and the 3D stuff is a cool novelty to show your mates :).

Oh, and you're saving yourself £43 over buying the more expensive and worse Galaxy S Plus :).

thanx for that, anything good in the samsung range for about the £250 or above mark as i prefer them, should have said earlier - sorry

thanx re s plus, i have no idea atm as on an old basic phone n this is gonna b my 1st smartphone, really appreciate your help tho

Erm, are you willing to go used but in good condition or not?

If so, a used SGS2 off eBay (with some hunting around) may be possible for £250

If not, not really. If you're willing to go HTC instead of Samsung the Evo 3D is a much better phone than the SGS+.

Ahh, if it's your first smartphone I'd avoid the used market, it can be very daunting (I know the feeling, trust me :p).

i wont buy a phone off ebay as iv been stung before so really cautious - seems a good phone (the evo) so gonna read up bit bout it n see

again thanx

take a look at the galaxy w...

strangel  Mar. 18, 2012 at 22:09

wot would you say are the best selling points on the galaxy w?

matt101101 / MOD  Mar. 18, 2012 at 22:11

That's an old phone :p, I had a u800 back in the day haha :D.

Yeah, the Evo 3D is a good phone. The problem with the Samsung Galaxy range is that it jumps straight from the SGS+ to a full blown S2, which is a bloody big gap. There is a phone called the Samsung Galaxy R which fills that gaps nicely, but it's not sold in the UK, unfortunately, so it'd cost you as much as a UK S2 by the time you'd imported it and paid the taxes etc.

I seriously recommend the Evo 3D, HTC's Sense UI is a great introduction to smartphones, too :).

It's worse than the SGS+, smaller (non-SAMOLED) screen, worse build quality. It also costs about £240, so it's really not worth it.

Treab  Mar. 18, 2012 at 22:12

is it worse? cool. whats the newer sgs the dual core version?

Treab  Mar. 18, 2012 at 22:13

also question for the op would you consider going contract i can get you a great deal if you would?

strangel  Mar. 18, 2012 at 22:19

thanx for all the pointers coz im quite confused (i am female tho!!!)
looks like NOT the w then
n as for going contract, i wont as i have a excellent 30 day rolling with virgin thats why i need payg

Treab  Mar. 18, 2012 at 22:20

the reason i ask is cause if you went payg you could get a new sgs2 for around 250 with a little work? but thats entirely up to you.

i will keep looking ;)

strangel  Mar. 18, 2012 at 22:25

thanx for helping and i understand wot you are saying re contract but atm im only paying £5 per month and get 100 mins (enuf 4 me) 3k txts and 3k mins to virgin mobs, when i add web access £7.50 will get me 125 mins, 5k txts, 3k mins virg mobs n 500mb or £10 250mins, 5k txts, 3k virg mobs n 1gb

Treab  Mar. 18, 2012 at 22:27

do you mind second hand via amazon?

matt101101 / MOD  Mar. 18, 2012 at 22:27

Definitely not the Galaxy W...it's one model below the SGS+ (yes, I know, Samsung's Android range is totally confusing and there are way to many models :p).

That's a bargain, are you a VM customer by any chance?
