    Just wondering where other fellow members buy their new mobile phones (i know most people have contract phones - this is for those who buy their phones separately) - My iPhone 4S has finally reached it's limit and it's high time to buy a new one. Looking for stuff like the Zenfone 6 and etc. at good prices.

    Zenfone 6 is probably your best bet I've been wanting one myself (on nexus 5 atm) If your tech savy I high recommend flashing cyanogenmod 12.1

    If you are tight on budget, then you can wait for One plus Two that will be launching on 27 the July. If you buy this then you will have a 2015 flagship killer device (though not a flagship device).

    That's going to be an awesome phone. I'd still pick Zen Phone 6 over the One plus 2, they are really close in price Zen phone is a bit cheaper and Asus has way way better support. The camera on the One plus 2 is better than the Zen so for people that like taking pictures One plus 2 might be the way to go.

    Zenfone 6 is a real bang for a buck celphone. If you got money to burn try the S6.

    A Motorola Moto G fan here. I got mine from a local eshop in my country and am really happy with it.

    Don't waste money on overpriced, shitty Samsungs. Wait till the end of this month and get a OnePlus Two. Next gen. USB Type C, Fingerprint Scanner, Snapdragon 810 and whatnot...

    Go for HTC One m7, remember m7 not the newest versions (m8/m9) , don't ask me why but you won't regret
    you can find a cheap used one on ebay for around 200-250 bucks

    I use the LG G2, it has been great for me! Never had any issues either. Only downside, no external storage (D802). Big enough screen, great resolution. Lollipop is slowly being released, but with the CloudyG3 ROM, it's perfect!

    Samsung's really are shit :) My partner and I had one for a while (Galaxy S4) and found that our battery was slowly swelling... Turns out our other friends with the same phone had the same thing! It was bulging that much you could spin it never endingly on a table. Sold our phones and went for iPhones instead....

    CL you can always haggle your price down in person. But you have to do some checks on the phone to make sure you dont get scammed.

    I agree with Samsung is shit ! A lot of brands here, I never heard about. For a second,I thought we are not talking about cell phones


    Z2 has a great price and top ranking in GSMArena. It's a wonderful phone. If you are into samsung ( I hate them personally ) then galaxy note 4 is something to look at
