DoggNZ: There's no good Android phones for under $300 new. Either save a bit more and buy a Samsung S2 new or look for one second hand. They're way better then any cheap new ones around.


wrong.

check out zoppo, zte, meizu, xiaomi, etc...

I have a 12 month old Galaxy S2 which has spent 95% of it's life in a Gel Case and has had a Screen Protector on the screen for 100% of it's life.

Got an iPhone on a new plan (Wanted iMessage / Facetime so I can talk to the Mrs easier/cheaper.)

Was hoping to get $300 but you may be able to convince me to let it go for a bit cheaper.

PM me if you want.


Cheers,
Lance.


EDIT: Wow... snapped up fast and not by the OP either, sorry dude!

This could be a cool alternative if you are happy to plug in a mouse and keyboard and play on your LCD.

freitasm: What about the new Huawei G510? $299 on Vodafone...


^ This!! really good phone and under priced, should be $400. Otherwise go 2nd hand, or maybe an s2 on a special.
