This week the team set themselves a 'fun' challenge - to choose a new pre-pay mobile phone costing less than £100 to give as a as a Christmas present...
[To avoid arguments we agreed to 'shop' at Carphone Warehouse]
- Rafe opts for a Nokia: A 'One Direction'-branded Nokia C2-02 for £59.95 (and suggests buying 8 Alcatel OT209s for £4.95 each to use up the rest of the budget)
- Ewan buys something special for his Nan: A Doro PhoneEasy 610 for £79.95
- Ben spots an Android bargain: The SonyEricsson X8 for £99.95 (or £69.99 direct from Three as Rafe points out later)
We discuss each other's choices, the appeal (or not) of each device and what matters most when buying a cheaper handset.
As ever, your views are welcomed - did we pick well, what would you buy and what matters to you when choosing a mobile for others?
