    My mobile has died and I need to get a new one sharpish. I have had a look at saturn.de (German electronic chain) and there a few for around 75€. Does anybody have any recommendations? The following are the cheaper phones they offer:

    SONY Xperia™ E1 weiß 90€
    NOKIA Lumia 530 Dual Sim orange inkl. Zusatzcover in dunkelgrau 85€
    SAMSUNG Galaxy Young 2 weiß 85€
    SAMSUNG GALAXY Trend 2 weiß 79€

    Anyone got any of these phones they could recommend?

    Any advice gratefully received!

    Missus has the Trend, does the job for her but its dog-****e slow due to the Sammy bloatware on it.

    It'll do in an emergency and then flog it afterwards for something decent.

    Hmmm thanks chaps.

    I'll try and hunt down that one Milo has suggested then.

    Thanks Scara - there are a couple of phones listed from that company too. If I can't find the other one I guess I'll go for one of them then.

    I'm posting this from my Moto G. I think its awesome, only downside is the lack of SD card slot.

    Don't see myself ever going back to more expensive phones, my sister is paying about £50/month for the new iPhone of which around £35 is just for the phone. On a 2 year deal that's £840 for the phone, insane amount of money.

    I paid £260 for the Xperia Z1 Compact. Now pay £18 a month with GiffGaff for Unlimited Texts, tinterweb and 2000 mins. As far as payg goes, not too shabby and a decent enough phone

    Check the small print! I was considering an Xperia Z3 compact from that site but the model they had used the wrong 4G bands for my provider (EE).
    In the end EE offered me a UK model for a similar price with a contract renewal.
