New phone time?

The Moto G 2014 is getting a bit long in the tooth, and I still haven’t got the Marshmallow updated which would help with the endless storage issues (I’m never getting a phone with so little storage again!)   So I’ve started looking at potential replacements.

I prefer paying for the phone up front rather than tieing myself to an expensive contract, so I won’t be getting anything cutting edge. I’ve done some research and so far it looks to be between the Nexus 5X and the Sony Xperia Z5 Compact. The Nexus is a bit bigger and would get updates very quickly, but the Z5 has a better battery and expandable storage. Both would be a step up from the Moto G, something it may come down to price. Both are around the £300 mark so I’ll keep my eyes open for any deals.

I’ve looked at other phones like the OnePlus 2 and Nextbit Robin but there’s always something missing. I’d quite like a fingerprint scanner and NFC to be a bit more future proof. I’ll do a bit more research and will get something by the end of the month.
