    You can get a Motorola Moto G for £130 brand new from a few phone shops or I think its £99 from Vodafone stores but not sure if the Vodafone one is 4.4.
    I got mine from Phones 4 U and it had an update for 4.4 and its also unbranded.
    I have to admit I didn't think a phone at that price brand new would be any good but I am very pleased with it. :)

    Hi I'm looking for a bigger screen one to be honest to see if the bigger handset compared to the iphone bothers me day to day or is much better

    Okay mate I went from the iPhone 5 to the Moto G and have to say it feels so much better and makes you think why pay £500 for a iPhone when a £130 phone does just as much and actually feels nice compared to the cold iPhone lol

    Don't do it! I did the exact thing and just sold the Moto G after owning it for a week. Regretted the purchase after 1 day with the Moto G. The Moto G is a great phone for the money but the camera is shocking. Also owning an iPad and Macbook Pro its better keeping the iphone to stay in the same ecosystem instead of having to purchase an app twice. Apps still look better on iPhone (e.g. Hootsuite).

    Not bashing Android but realised to comparable experience with iPhone 5 you would likely have to buy the Moto X.

    As a starting point with Android, I have a cheap S3 for sale and coming from an iphone 5 myself, I have to say the S3 is a cracking phone!

    No probs, I have had an S4 and an HTC One and prefer the S3, who knows why?

    Good luck with your search.

    For £300 you can get the nexus 5 brand new from carphone warehouse and that should do all you need

    What network is your iPhone on? I have a Note 3 I would consider trading. I'm moving back to Apple.

    And to be honest I'd do you a very good deal.

    I have a Samsung S3 with all its bit and pieces + a anker extended battery + a 16gb sd card.
    There are no marks to the screen of the phone or anywhere else. I could do it for £170 + P&P of your choice but I would only recommend RMSD for tracking and insurance.
