Had an iphone 5 many years ago, then got a Sony xperia, didn't last long, so then got a cheapish Chinese phone. For the money it has been brilliant, tough as old boots, been dropped many times and is still intact. My wife had a habit of destroying phones, she never had one that lasted more than 6 months, so I bought her a cheapish Chinese phone, a Xiaomi note 7, this has so far lasted nearly 2 years. I now fancy a new phone, I don't bother with getting one on a contract, you get a free tube of KY jelly when you do that so it doesn't hurt so much when you pay for it, so I will buy one outright. These cheapish Chinese phones are not as cheap now, but the specs are amazing, stuff that the mainstream makers are playing catch up with. So, what do others use , anyone else using Chinese (non mainstream) phones? I have more or less settled on the Xiaomi Redmi note 10 plus.
