Lots but slow learner.
Mrs Bob tells me i need a new phone (camera to me as i seldom use it as a phone).
Must NOT have a lot of tech.
Main use would be as a camera and to received/send watsaps.
I don't do or want fancy with all sorts of stupid features.
Any advice on what Mrs Bob should be looking at for me.

A big black bakealite with a propper dail on the front would do me but i heard they don;t use them anymore,
Ta people.

you can get a phone with a great camera but the chances are you will get all the techy stuff with it.
And it won’t be cheap.

What phone do you have now. Either Android or Apple IOS you will already have an account. If not my personal choice would be Android and you can pick something for for between 100.00 and 150.00.

If you have an existing sim contract make sure it has a data package with it.

Why not use a small digital pocket sized camera, they do still shots & video, and take SD cards that hold a lot of stuff.
Try looking at Lumix range, they start at £79 roughly, and go up to £800 with many, many, mega pixels, Leica Lenses, and wide range of adjustments.
I must confess to being too lazy recently, and just using the phone camera, but the little lumix does do much superior things, as that's what its primary use is...taking great pictures.

One Example for you, but there are loads on offer.

So basically you need a ‘Compact camera’ then 🤭

If you want a phone look out for a redmi note 10 pro which has a very good camera for the price. Checkout the online reviews.
There were deals linked to on here last year that's when I got mine.

Pixels are well regarded for their cameras.
This is an older model, hence the more reasonable price point... but still current & capable.

On the back it says Samsung Duos:unsure:
I think she does a Gif Gaf at £10 a go that automatically renews when the credit gets low.

Camera AND a phone, no thanks, bad enough having to carry one item.

Best to check out HotUKdeals first.

Definitely, that's what I have and I've hardly used my actual camera as the phone takes great photos. I think it might have been me who started the thread about them. 😄

Thanks all.
I will pass these post on to HRH and see what she can make of them.
As mention in post #1. My main use of the thing is watsapp to and receive and camera. I will not unless absolutely desperate use it as a phone.
HRH put lots of these app things on my existing phone that i almost never use
Yesterday when i was doing some calcs she reminded me and opened a calculator on it, magic.

Yeah, it sends messages to your contacts as to how crap a photographer you are! 😆

If the pictures you have been sending from Oz are from your old phone, you definitely do not need a new one, they have been fantastic!

If Mrs Bob thinks you need a new one........ you must have a Birthday or late Christmas present owing?
She can then choose and, if you don't like it, you know someone that does. :LOL:

PS Like me with my new one, all you probably need is someone to show you how to work your present one? :LOL:
