    Needs to replace OnePlus 3, but what with?

    I didn't really want to replace my OnePlus 3,however I manged to drop the damn thing yesterday and crack the screen, first time since I've started using touchscreen phones that I've ever managed to break a screen!

    It only cost me 270 to begin with, so a screen replacement doesn't seem economical. However OnePlus have since gone all mainstream and started charging close to 500 for their new model which rules that out, as I want a phone like the OnePlus 3 which I'm not afraid to leave in my pocket while I go mountain biking etc.

    Features I want to keep, which the OnePlus 3 has:

    Good camera, preferably with optical image stabilisation
    Some sort of 'fast charge' feature equivalent to OnePlus's DashCharge system
    USB-C
    5-5.5" screen
    NFC
    Fingerprint reader

    Thats one of the things I like about the WileyFox Swift2 range - it runs what is essentially vanilla android 7.

    I've an Honor 8 and so far it's been flawless.
    USB-C, Fast charge, NFC, Fingerprint scanner, 5.2" 1080p screen and a decent enough camera.

    It does run EMUI on android 7, but TBH i've not had any major issues with it, and I like it.

    Chuck some cash at this http://www.geekbuying.com/item/Globa...ck-377527.html Band 20 support, global rom and brilliant for the money. If you smash it just buy another one. People think cheap is crap but they make solid phones with great hardware with out the scamsung price tag.

    Cypher, just make sure it has the global rom installed.http://www.geekbuying.com/item/Offic...ck-379852.html Or you could have some fun.

    Ooh just spotted GearBest have the Xiaomi Mi6 on special offer for 320...I think I could live with that. And 5.2" screen would be perfect, plus it's splash proof so I don't have to worry about getting it out in the rain when I'm biking.

    Swift 2X looks a good shout, although I couldn't bring myself to buy one now knowing that a few weeks ago it was 149. haha

    The Xiaomi stuff looks good, but also seems to be a pain to get in the UK, especially if there are warranty issues?

    I wouldn't mind dropping down to nearer 5", would fit in my pocket easier and I don't need the big screen now I have a tablet as well.

    Apparently there's a new 5.5" Xiaomi due for release/announcement tomorrow too so I'll see what that looks like, the Mi 6 looks very nice but a little above what I'd be happy to go biking with.

    Managed to get mine for 149 on Prime Day.
