Which phone up to £400?

Sorry to hijack this thread but I'm looking for similar for my daughter's birthday. I'm not sure about used. Having said that I had an LG G3 and that was a cracking phone, so the later G7 would be awesome. I'm not sure about Samsung, I once had a S4 and it was full of annoying bloatware. I hate all that crap. The LG G3 had next to no bloatware which made it a way better phone.

If buying new, I'm guessing the best Moto G, or some Chinese phone like a Xiaomi or an Honor. Would like a screen size 5.5" or above. Thanks

This is more suitable in a new thread.

You have set out information about your preferences but little about your daughter's preferences. I would assume a good quality front and back camera are a must.

Thanks Steven, it's for my daughters 10th birthday. The camera's would be a decent addition, her current Moto G 2nd gen doesn't have best of camera's. I don't expect it to be as good as an Iphone though, although I guess some Andriod phones are as good. I'm looking for an an android phone with 5.5" screen minimum, and a bit of processing power as she likes games. Not majorly graphic intensive one at the moment though. Thanks.

Thanks they do seem to be great value. These used to have no bloatware, I hope they are still the same. I can't stand all that rubbish personally..

I'm strongly considering one of these myself. The latest Samsungs are ridiculously expensive and I don't like/trust the Chinese branded phones.
The G7 looks like great value for money.

Do not rule out previous gen Samsung (or indeed for other brands). New model = previous models suffer depreciation, but they remain more than capable handsets

That's a good list thanks. I had read about the Honor Play. I have a work Iphone, and the camera is the only good thing I can say about it. Everything else is not as good as Android. It's good to know that Android can be better too, thanks.
