I'd say HTC one (original not M8) should be close enough to your budget. Great bloody phones too.

was just reading about the lumia's not being very youtube friendly . i occasionally used my iphone to look at youtube but it aint a big deal if i can or cant .

most of the reviews point towards htc one m9 , samsung galaxy s6 or the lumia 930 . probably come down to which one i can afford though .

If your budget is £200 for phone plus you have to buy credit for it, I would go the contract root Psy, I've got the Samsung galaxy note 4 and cannot fault it, it's a big phone and is classified as a phablet. I've also got the Samsung gear VR and you slot the phone inside it, it is made in partnership with Oculus, who made the Rift and watching movies through that is like sitting in a cinema with the screen curved around you Very Happy , plus I got the Samsung Gear watch because I'm a Wh#re Cool

I use a iphone 5c (probably overbudget £300ish )but think you can get a iphone 4 for around £200, i agree with wez about the HTC one being good.
Think my next will be a HTC.

Samsung Note 4 as Fire said. I've got the Note 3 and it's brilliant. Very Happy

Yeah um er I'm sure it will be fine but the battery life might be shot but I suppose you can easily replace it right? Razz
