Upgrade time? Not sure what to do? Want to go Sim Free?
If you bought a phone outright then you could drop to £15 or less a month with O2 or GiffGaff, it’d be a lot up front but cheaper each month and in the long run.
Heres a list of premium build phones ranging from £200-540, All are 4G phones and 4″+ screens because no one bothers with 3.5” screens anymore.

You can look at 2nd hand versions of the above phones here at cheaper prices.
Here are some cheap sims from GIFFGAFF, they use O2 network and can transfer your number over.
O2 has £16 a month, 1000 mins, unlimited text and 1GB 4G data sim only.
Finally, batteries in general are quite poor in phones due to the lack of advancement in battery technology so you’d probably have to charge most phones at least once a day.
Notable mentions go to the Amazon Fire Phone and Sony Xperia Z3, worth looking at.
I’ll be doing a full review on the iPhone 6 and Nexus 5 in the coming days….
