    hello,

    I'm looking for a cheapish android mobile phone to use in the mh as a spare, for mobile internet and for entertaining my youngest with films and a few apps.

    There have been discussions about Chinese phones since January and I wondered how people have got on with them.

    I would like dual sim, 4g (if poss) and around 16gb of storage plus space for a Micro SD card. The phone will be used with payg sims. Any suggestions of models and suppliers?
