The nexus 4 is a beautiful, beautiful creation. If it didn't say google on the box, I'd have assumed it was sent from God.

Simple enough isn't it - depends if you use over 10gb of mobile data a month or not. Which is easy to check.

aye, if id had an unlimited deal in my previous contract id have used more though, i had to hold back cos i was on a shitty 750mb limit...

went for the three deal in the end, cost more by approx. 70£ for the duration but the unlimited and three feel at home were big deals for me.

If you've been 3g previously I'd add a couple Gb to your current usage... most people tend to report their usage goes up when they switch

Constant spotify streaming via 4G on highest quality settings = much data usage.

140Mb per hour (roughly)... probably would get close to the 10Gb

Looking for a new phone as my Samsung Galaxy S2 is old and keeps crashing/freezing.

I like the idea of getting the Nexus 5x as my Galaxy has loads of Samsung rubbish installed on it that you can't get rid of. Plus the Nexus 5x appears to be about half the price of a Galaxy s6.

Also like the look of the OnePlusOne 2 but it seems you need an invite to get one of them.

I don't need masses of storage, sd card slot would be nice but not essential.

Any recommendations?

I've got an LG G2 - best phone I've ever had. It's a couple of years old now but going strong, the G3/G4 are out too now. No SD card and the battery isn't removable, but it's got 32GB built in and the battery life is incredible.

And even though just about anything other than the Nexus comes with crap installed, you can usually hide it all from the app menu somehow
