    Default Smart phone recommendations

    I am looking for a smart phone for my daughter .
    Her Samsung Galaxy Mini just died after 10 months of use. I don't think we kept the receipt because we got it in a HN sale really cheap.
    I have swapped out the battery with a known working battery, and also tried a factory hard start - defaulting all to original.

    Anyway, with her Samsung dying so fast, and my work Samsung dying after only a few months of use recently, and because there is a budget limit, I am kind of wanting to avoid another Samsung for her.

    I am looking for something resonably cheap, runs Android, reliable (I know cheap and reliable are contrasts but hopefully there is something available).

    Any recommendations please?

    Samsung NZ have a really decent warranty service. Of course you'd need to provide proof of purchase, but all that takes is a call to HN, and be insistent on getting the info required.

    Just found the receipt.. phone was purchased on 2nd October 2014. (Only died last night)

    Is it worth pursuing?

    Yep. CGA. Actually most phones these days have a 24 month warranty.

    Have sent an email to Samsung. Will be interesting to hear what they say.

    Thanks for that
