Wife had a cheap Android handset which drove her up the wall. Gave her my Lumia 520. Got dropped into water. Gave her Samsung S3. Got dropped onto concrete, screen/LCD shattered, no longer powering on. Bought an ok Huawei, shes living with it but something with decent battery, storage  and camera would make her day when at the kids school events.

 

No image, but rather this....

I would replace my old (and crappy) Samsung Galaxy S5 Mini (everything is in the "Mini" cry).

EDIT: change email to thumbail with a link to full image size, as the resizing in the post was not good to read the text).

Replacing a Nokia 105. The battery life is great, but it doesn't even support 3g!
