If you are struggling with getting a smartphone for cost, as I was as the Galaxy died, and i was then using an HTC Hero.
I needed a phone that did more than the Hero, it being VERY old.The Galaxy phone before it stopped working, the hero was a liming interim. I do have I.T experience, but i'm on ESA and was short of a workable phone.
So I decided to try something and sourced a chinese off net phone.
Dont baulk... ITS ENABLEMENT.
I can do this particular blog because im aware that many people miss out on the even basic of internet access AND cant gain contracts or super technical expensive smartfones. And many see WALLS they cant climb to see the other side.
The one I got was below 50 quid...
called Swees 5.0'' 3g on a kitkat android version .
Dont worry if youve never looked at smartfones. The user friendliness is phenomenal on most these days.
Now i ask a lot of stuff of anything I have because VFM is really ingrained. I can say this evening that I'd recommend it as a very workable phone for a lot of people .
You can get the one I have now tested and know its limits and capabilities, on ebay .
As i Say for most people this phone would be adequately functional, and is an absolute bargain.
Im NOT being paid to do ANYTHING. I hope you could MAYBE get smartfone confidence for yourself or someone you know? Why not gift an excluded person this phone? Or venture yourself to it?
Where you can get the phone I spoke of CLICK HERE
You'll need a sim, but theres many PAY as you go providers.
For tech or enabled people reading this, Ive tried to help you promote inclusion here.
For those looking for options I hope this helps.
