Whether for Christmas, as a birthday gift or a simple reward to yourself for all your hard work, getting a new phone can be an exciting occasion for anybody.
The last thing you would want is to spend money on a phone that isn’t any good, or way too expensive for its features, especially when there are newer and better options to look into!

Pixel 4a 5G
The pixel 4a 5G has been out for a while however the phone is still highly relevant today and would make an incredible present for a loved one!
The phone boasts a 3.5mm audio jack which seems like a necessity, however, many manufacturers are increasingly choosing to remove them entirely.
This means the Pixel can still be used to listen to your favourite music on your wired headphones, as well as any Bluetooth audio device.
The phone also features an Ultra-clear HD screen with an all-day battery that can last up to 48 hours!
This is unheard of in terms of flagship mobile phone battery life!
The pixel is also known for the brilliant camera that takes amazing pictures both in daylight and at night! A very good option for individuals who enjoy taking pictures!
Lastly, and maybe the best-known quality of this phone is the world-class software loaded onto every device. Pixel is made by google who is responsible for developing the android OS.
It is therefore no surprise that their version of android is the best and cleanest version you can get your hands on. The OS is as close to stock android as humanely possible while still having incredible and novel features missing from other high-end devices.
Definitely the best option for android lovers wanting a new phone on a budget that is still up-to-date!
The pixel certainly won’t disappoint.

Apple iPhone SE (256GB) – (PRODUCT)RED (includes EarPods, power adapter)
Last but certainly not least, the iPhone SE!
This device has also been released for a while, however, apple products are known for their quality and longevity.
This product is no different!
It sports a simple 4.7-inch retina HD display, as well as water and dust resistant IP67 rating.
In my opinion, the SE is the best phone for individuals who don’t require large displays, however, need a durable device to go on adventures with.
As usual, the camera is superb in most lighting conditions and features several picture controlling modes including portraits, and depth mode.
The most impressive aspect of the device is probably the A13 bionic chip with a third-generation Neural Engine.
This ensures your device won’t be lagging anytime soon!
The phone also comes with fast-charging and wireless charging out of the box which is much more than can be said for devices being released today!
The productRed version is my favourite colour and contributes to a good cause.
Definitely a nice phone as a gift to yourself or a loved one!
Also, definitely get the 256GB version. You won’t regret the extra space you have to save videos and photos!
