In Topic: Buying Help 100 Vs 125Ps

Yesterday, 08:02 AM

You should be able to haggle the price down a bit. If cars still have at least a year of warranty left on them then you could also look at private sellers (as long as you pay for an inspection). Even if you don't buy privately you can use the private prices to haggle down a dealer's price. Just make the point that the warranty is with Ford so the fact that you are buying from a dealer on a car this new means nothing, so the price shouldn't be so high.

Can someone answer this,is it only on older android phones where you need apps to make things better.

I get a pic and it's a slide show of 10sec and they say get an app to solve it,i don't want loads of apps eating the battery.


That sounds like a bit of the "unnecessary extra stuff" I mentioned that some manufacturers put on top of the Android UI just so they can claim they have more features. I don't know how you would fix that but hopefully it's not too hard to find out if new phones have this "feature".

This kind of BS:

Basildon man with 42 points for driving offences keeps licence - http://www.bbc.co.uk...-essex-33378386

Clearly this guy is a 4 wheeled menace! Granted we don't need another person on 'benefits' if he loses his job, but this brown eye is a danger to the public and he has been allowed to continue to drive! I'd like to see his insurance quotes, might struggle with his debts when he declares his convictions!!!!


That's really annoying, it's like there's one rule for people like him and another for everyone else. I don't see why his "nervous breakdown" or the amount of debt he's in should work in his favour - it should count against him if anything. The laws applied to motorists are there to protect other members of the public, not to help dangerous drivers get out of debt.

The best Android phone at that price is the Moto G


I was going to suggest the same thing, although a new one is due out at some point which might be worth waiting for. Annoyingly the current Moto G doesn't come with Android 5 out of the box, even though the new Moto E does. I've had the original Moto E for just over a year and it's been great for a £80 phone, only issue is it soon runs out of space if you install lots of apps and a few games.



Will look at that,can get S5 mini for about £170 so was going towards that.


Looks like that has slightly better specs than the Moto G, but one advantage the Motorola phones have is a bare Android OS, no unnecessary extra stuff on top that will slow it down. I wouldn't be surprised if the Moto G has better battery life.


I'd look at reviews for all phones in your budget, sites like Techradar are great for this sort of thing.

Had a similar problem on my 09 Fiesta, luckily while it was under warranty as they had to replace an expensive EATC component.
