handset advice

Anonymous
Not applicable

Hi I am after some advice - my other half currently has the HTC One M8 ( old I know but hes not really into phones) and I am looking to replace it with a new one for Xmas.

 

Now the reason he likes the M8 is cos its pretty sturdy. Hes pretty heavy- handed and its used for work so is liable to get knocked about in his line of work.

 

I am looking for recommendations for something similar - hes not bothered about having the latest phone but needs something that will be practical and durable.

 

Anyone have any ideas?

@AnonymousVery much personal preference really. The shop has two HTC devices available. Not sure if they meet your needs https://www.o2.co.uk/shop/phones/#brand=htc&sort=content.sorting.featured&page=1

Phones are a very personal thing and in all honesty, I would not appreciate someone buying for me unless I had heavily hinted at the one I wanted.
I'd try and get some ideas from him as to what he likes, like what his friends, colleagues have etc.

Yeah I did think about whether he would like me choosing a phone for him... hes not really 'into' phones and only uses one cos he has to - most of the time it is sat on the side.
Its only the fact that the M8 has almost given up the ghost that I thought it may be a decent present idea.

I think you are right- I shall have to delve a bit deeper!

Then you certainly need to ask (or delve a bit deeper) @Anonymous

Last night I told my son that I was thinking of buying him a new phone for a joint christmas/birthday present. It was expensive. He said no thanks Mum.... you can buy me a flight to Goa instead!!

(I might add the flight to Goa is a lot cheaper than the phone I was planning to buy)  Hero Smiley Very Happy
