    I already pounced but thank you for the heads up.
    Is it wrong to say I wept when I opened the box from the postman ?
    I have a Note 3 that has given four years active service through cannon fire and Rick O'shea and never once has it let me down or strayed from my side.A tremendous phone that cost the earth on a contract jobbie.

    The two phones side by side look resplendent and the old note with a polish and a buff can still turn heads !
    If I put them both in hand I would say the note wins on aesthetics but the note was probably around the £600 mark non contract.

    This cheeky Moto cost pennies and still turns heads and since acquiring it we have both doubled our circle of friends !!
    It actually feels quality and has all the credentials to boot:

    Note 3 still probably comes out on top with better battery and three meg ram but for absolute pennies the Moto will make you grin:
    Main bits .. Qualcomm MSM8952 Snapdragon 617
    CPU Octa-core (4x1.5 GHz Cortex-A53 & 4x1.2 GHz Cortex-A53)
    Camera 13 MP, f/2.0, autofocus, dual-LED (dual tone) flash
    Non-removable Li-Ion 3000 mAh battery
    It's fast its got Gorilla glass and it's Bigga ..
    Whats not to like !

    Combine it with Threes inclusive minutes inclusive texts and 4 gig of data package for £9 and Bobs your uncle Fred's your father.

    Nothing else I can add to the fray.
    If your in the market for a good budget then your spoilt for choice.
    Huawawi Honor Lenovo Wileyfox Moto and many other fine pieces all vying to take centre stage.
    Good luck with your choice.

    I succumbed to buying the Moto G5 Taxi.
    Probably let my youngest have my almost new LG K10, or keep it as a spare. So far so good. Although one slight quibble as suspected is the battery, could of been of higher power, but that said it does come with a a rapid charger.

    Bought it for £160, and for that kind of money, it's no wonder why it comes top in this price bracket. Great phone and a bargain

    I can't justify paying hundreds of pounds for the latest offerings from either Apple or Samsung, way overpriced IMO.
