Hi,

My daughter broke her leg on Friday and my wife promised her a phone for being brave... little knowing the cost of them. My daughter is used to using my HTC One X and Nexus 4 so an Android is a must. She has a Nexus 7 for her games, so the phone will be limited to a few smaller games. The N7 will need to tether.

I've looked around the £100 - £150 range and like the Sony Xperia U at £119 on Virgin Mobile (my preferred network for our area). Can anyone point me to a comparable phone near enough in the price range please?

try the orange san diego , galaxy s advance , lg L9 ......

but i woudn't really recommend buying a 10 year old a cell phone , more so when she already has a nexus 7 .... its not like she's gonna text people , and the nexus should be enough for games and videos ...!!

Thanks for the phone advice. Not so much the parenting advice.

Buy her some chocolate or something children enjoy and will appreciate. She has plenty of time for phones and socialising when she gets older - let her enjoy her childhood, I am sure you're a fantastic Dad :) and I am not attempting to undermine your authority, but it worries me that people feel compelled to place potentially harmful gadgets into the hands of young children; if I were a father, and a responsible one (the only kind there should be) I would NOT allow this.

Take care :)
