    I'm after a cheap phone that I will use for 3-4 weeks while my s7 edge gets sent for repair under warrenty, I don't have anyone I can borrow one off as I need a decent phone as it can be my lifeblood at times at work so a cheap calls only phone isn't an option and family don't do good phones and friend don't hold onto used phones.

    My current the thought is to pick up a g4 and take the hit selling it used in a month as I'm getting my contract refunded for the month.

    Other than that any other options? I don't want to go used as I can't be doing with the risk even a small chance of losing that phone whole it's away and although amazon have lots of cheap Chinese phones I need somthing that will run all my apps without issues.

    I know this may be a big ask but any good alternatives?

    Tldr; awkward git wants cheap phone. :)

    Iphone isn't an option as it's way too much messing about (although I imagine it was partly said in jest)

    Vodafone option may be possible but I'd prefer a 5" screen minimum but I'll pop and have a look at it when I get chance as I've seen they have larger options.

    Samsung J3 at Carphone Warehouse is cheap and it's a Samsung, been looking at it myself for the mother in law.

    Decided on the smart prime 7 as it gave me 5" and was only £75, should be able to get £50 back to minimise my loss, now to contact samsung to arrange repair.

    Didn't want to go Chinese purely for resale issues.

    Cheers now I just need to hope I can get it unlocked and running on my 3 sim card and get a few of my essentials installed.
