My HTC Desire is dieing, Nexus 4/Sim only content.
I went from a rooted desire to an N4 in December. I was lucky with the shipments and got it quick. Best phone at the price. Although I’d have an S4 or an S3…. only because the memory is limiting and cloud storage, even Google play music, isn’t always available…..London bus commute and 3g drops in a busy bit of brixton for example.Posted 4 years ago
However, get the N4 and go cloud, and then don’t like yourself to 1G…. it isn’t enough if you are using play music. Virgin VIP, 15 quid totally UN limited and tethering is fine.
Or look for a deal on an S3
Its already rooted and running DGB. It runs very hot if using GPS or a video recording app (always has), which means it stops charging. It randomly turns off when inserting/removing the headphone jack and often needs cleaning to recognise the jack.
Even though it got much better after rooting, it is laggy, I think it just struggles to keep up with the newer apps. Its also on its second genuine battery but still seems to drain very quickly once it drops below 70%.Posted 4 years agouser-removedMember
I have a Desire S with three batteries (two are eBay specials which are better than the originals) and a genuine HTC leather case for 50 spondoolicks – been meaning to stick it on classifieds for ages… Few small scratches on the screen but nothing serious.Posted 4 years ago
Sorry for hijack, as you were.
My finger is hovering, hesitating, over the ‘buy’ button for the Nexus 4 at £279. I resisted the impulse buy when everyone on here was buying them like hot cakes! I can’t see any similar phones in the same price, I’ve not missed any other deals have I?
I’m out of contract, paying £15 for a few hundred minutes/texts, and 3Gb of data. Data is the important one for me, and being able to tether a laptop.
Are there any sim only deals that can match the data and tethering? Alternatively I can tie myself into EE for 24 months sim only and reduce my tariff to £13.
Thanks.Posted 4 years agopetefromearthMember
I’m a bit late to pipe up but I got my nexus 4 on a 3 contract. Free phone, £28/month, unlimited data with tethering, plenty of texts/minutes
That was way cheaper than their advertised tariff but they were quite open to price matching another deal I’d seen. At the time it compared pretty well with the sim only deals over 24 months
Think it was here I found the best deals…Posted 4 years ago
Didn’t use them as three price matched!
