Thinking of upgrading your mobile? 2017 has been a great year for them so far, plus a few honorable mentions from the previous years which have held up to today too, however sometimes picking what’s right for you sometimes isn’t as easy as you first thought it was. Below we will talk about a few mobiles to consider which we believe are the best of the best, whether you’re buying a mobile for yourself, or one for your child to take on a trip with them.

The Sony Xperia M4 Aqua is an older model, released back in 2015, however it’s still able to hold up in this year, it may be on the cheaper side of things, but the features it provides can still stand up to the similar Samsung models being released recently.

Ranging around the £100 mark for our Refurbished models, the mobile actually makes a very good first phone for your child, the size of the handset may be on the larger side, but with a 5” screen, they can play games, watch videos, and it’s all really easy thanks to Android 6.0.

Apple iPhone SE

Apple are notorious for their iPhone releases, and also their prices… however, The Apple iPhone SE is only around the £200 range for our Refurbished models, the phone has a 4” screen which would make a great first phone for your child due to its easiness to hold, you can get anything from 16gb to 128gb storage, which may be overkill for some people.

The iPhone SE even runs iOS 10, keeping up on all the great features, such as being able to lock the data if the phone gets lost, which is definitely comfortable to have if you know your child will do just that, iPhones also generally do a little better than Samsung models when dropped too.
