£670 for a phone?! You must be mental or loaded Micky.

Can't stand Samsung phones personally.

I just get a 24m contract every time and the phone normally comes free. I get 20% discount of all Vodafone contracts through work for me plus 10 friends or family

Any recommendations for a decent handset on sim only?

I've had an Xperia z1 for a few years now, £10 a month SIM only on Vodafone. It's now starting to mong up (dying after an hour, crashing suddenly, taking 10 mins to switch back on) so I need to buy a new handset.

I'm happy with my SIM only deal at Vodafone, can anyone recommend a decent handset for £100-150? Don't need anything flash.

I have to Moto G4 and I think it's great. Camera is decent, it's fast, can't remember it crashing, expandable memory

Yeah had an xperia z2 for the last few years and this feels much nicer. It's quick, nice big screen and has everything you need. Don't really see what you'd get by spending an extra £500 on the latest Samsung etc.

Mine started breaking the moment the warranty ran out over summer. Now it randomly factory resets itself, the microphone doesn't work, and battery dies at 20-something percent every day. Also the microSD never seems to work properly - any time any apps update they reset to internal storage, so the 16gb is always full. So irritating.

Over the weekend I snapped, I couldn't stand it any more and ordered an iPhone 7 128gb that arrives today <awe>
I had the first custom w***

Funny you mention this, my warranty ran out just last week and, genuinely, every day since I have encountered a different problem. It's all a bit steel beam-y.
