I assume your after a cheapish phone try:

http://www.tesco.com/direct/archos-5...mp=aff_1018132

Or from abroad bought some stuff of these before

http://dx.com/p/cubot-gt99-quad-core...m-black-231976

http://dx.com/p/b6000-quad-core-andr...-fi-8gb-228404

This looks like the best value phone I have ever seen, although not ever shopped with the company

If you don't mind good quality refurb try here

I've got a Galaxy S2 when they first came out and I love it. Yes it's a largish type of phone but at least I can see the content on the screen to when surfing the web

Update:

Just went into my local phone second hand phone emporium.

I looked at the Nexus 4 - They want 230 for it. It's awfully weighty and fragile with all that glass.

The Galaxy S2 they wanted 150 for it. It's a really nice and
light phone.

They had an Experia S which was locked to EE (orange!) for 150 - shame as it costs 20 to unlock these.

They tried to flog me the S3 mini for 170 - but it didn't rock my boat.

I will keep looking.

I work in a second hand shop. We have a 'motorola razr i' in at the moment for 150. The screen quality looks amazing when I show customers, and people that have bought them in the past have all said they are good phones.

One guy who buys a phone every other week said it was the best phone he ever had. Not sure about the specs off the top of my head as I don't usually think it matters too much. But you can always compare specs on the gsmarena website.

Another vote for the Razr I.

I'd recommend it over the S2.
