    Hi
    I have just been told I am eligible for a free upgrade
    and I have been given a selection of phones, which I have narrowed doen to the s5 mini and the lg g4c. I have an xperia sp at the moment and I enjoy using big screens. I would like to use the phone for things like VR Simulations and I will be rooting it for use in programming etc, so I am unsure which one would be the better option. The S5 has more ram and a better processor, but then the g4c has a bigger screen and a GPU.
    So what is your opinion on these two phones and which one would you go for?
    thanks,
    jos

    Your first sentence would sound alarm bells for me. There is no such thing as a "free" upgrade. The Xperia SP is a 2 year old, so I'm guessing you are out of contract. IMO neither phone is suitable.

    Yes i am out of contract as it ends this month, sorry should have worded it better. But it is a free upgrade as i spent over a certain amount on my pay monthly xperia sp.

    If you enjoy using big screens, the G4C would be my choice. The processor of the S5 is not that much better than the G4C and the extra 500MB of RAM won't make so much of a difference unless you really cane your kit with multitasking in which case you should be looking at 2GB RAM minimum.

    The G4C has a better battery too and I *think* is easier to root. Plus, no considerations for tripping Knox on the Samsung if you do.

    I have just ended a contract with an SP. I was surprised that CEX gave me £50 for it. Replaced with a Sony Z 3.
