Hi,

I currently have a Blackberry 9900.
There seem to have been so many good and bad batches of this phone.

I am looking for a decent new phone now on a decent pricing margin.
R200-250 bucks.

I cant stand these phones that start flaking away and their bezel doesnt hold out.
Fading of the edges and plastic that just gets discolored.
There are certainly phones that have good builds.

So i am looking for that quality finish.
A decent processor and phone that doesnt hang.
Decent Camera for day and night shots - decent ISO i guess.
Enough internal space so that i dont get silly messages saying i am low on disk space because i have just installed whatsapp and taken 20 pictures.

I am surely any phone i get now will be worlds apart from the 9900 i have now,

Thanks
keep it real

200-250 bucks, you mean per month ?

Obviously yes, you say contract. Was confused that you still using a 9900 BB...

Which network are you on? You might want to consider getting the contract from a network other than Vodacom. Vodacom is slow to release updates because they add apps to their phones.

Can you wait till next year? Samsung is releasing the newer versions of the A3,A5 and A7.It will be made of metal and have a finger print scanner. The new A3 will fit your price range.

If you cannot wait then I suggest either the G4 beat or the Sony M5.

The G4 beat only has 8gb internal memory but LG updates their phones often. The next update will allow you to merge the memory card and internal memory of the phone, so storage wont be an issue.

How about the Hauwei P8 Lite versus the Sony M4 Aqua ?
I am concerned about the finish, like scuff marks and scratches some phone are built so poorly that they get scratched so easy.
The samsungs Galaxy 4 and 5 i have seen the bezels and plastic fade in color and chip and scratch so easy its rubbish.
I used to have a black berry 9900 black phone amazing finish never a scratch at all.
I then smashed that phone and I got a blackberry 9900 again BUT a white one - it might have been baked wrong or something , the finish of the plastic was so rubbish, it peeled and what not.
Thats the kuk with cell phones how do u know they are even made properly with love anymore.
