That's the '4'. I already own that. I want the new '4s'. Although the 5 is likely out next year so if I can nurse my phone through the next two races I should be ok.
ah got you
Sorry, I should have added (realised now) I don't want a huge display. Something smaller is better, as just for music and easier to handle cycling along.
DO you have another suggestion?
is the 4 good? would it serve my music purpose, have you found it robust enough racing?
It would work but it's pretty big. I really liked my Sony Xperia Z3 Compact for racing. It's smaller and lasts forever. But you can't get them now so I'd look around and see whatever Compact models they do and how they compare. Good cameras too.
Wow, just looked. The Sony Xperia XZ2 Compact are fucking expensive.
If it's just for music I'd be some cheap as shit Xiami or Alacatel or something.
Actually I bought an old Alcatel in Spain when I couldn't get my phone to charge. You wanna try it?
If you wanna buy new, then use https://www.gsmarena.com/search.php3? to pick small screen size devices.
ouch they're expensive
thanks on the alactel but i'd rather just get something myself.
I might just take my s9 and use it for all purposes, which a beefy case
S9 is waterproof isn't it? Throw a case on it as you say, job done.
The Nokia 1 looks interesting. 100EU, Removable Li-Ion 2150 mAh battery
duel sim too
yeah ip68 but who trusts that, so was my motorola that i killed
If it were duel sim and smaller it'd be perfect but it's big for racing
I like the idea of this but no experience.
I basically wanted an old iPod shuffle that would work with Spotify
But don't know anyone who's tried it
mp3 playback up to 53h
Edit nokia 2 says 139h music!
with it's 4000mah battery
saw that, want a screen.
@hippy seems to have found the solution, that nokia 1
Moto G7 power with 5000mah battery and fast charging; my G7 plus takes about 20 minutes to go from 50>100%
You could see that from space it's so big! Nice suggestion though. I'll check if versions of that Nokia have fast charge.
Nice. The 2 is 5" though which is big.
But that battery is noice!
Cant buy in UK
Take a look at the Sony XZ1 Compact. I found a second hand one for sub £90 via cashconverters (who have the weirdest website in the world). They go for a fair bit more on Ebay.
Nice and small, and very powerful to boot.
https://www.gsmarena.com/sony_xperia_xz1_compact-8610.php for the spec.
anyone spotted any cheap prime day deals on phones yet?
And are Huawei phones pretty much defunct now Google will stopped updating them? Wondering about the P20 lite for £180
thanks, I went with a nokia 2 for now
