    as mentioned in the title above, I have a 100euro budget and would like to get my GF a smartphone, preferably android with at least 2gb ram. I don't mind if it's new or used, maybe even a flagship which isn't worth so much money these days. I just don't want her to suffer lag with those new 1gb RAM+ 8gb ROM smartphones. I already thought of the amazon fire phone, it's cheap here in Germany, but unluckily it's mostly locked to t-mobile.
    any other phones probably on your minds ?

    Moto G? I think you can get one that's around that price, but you might be having to get the 2nd generation instead of the 3rd gen.

    you could consider the samsung galaxy s mini series. The other ones are very often too big for women (at least, that's what the girls in my environment tell me). The minis are well-sized and can be stored in almost any girls pant pocket.
    If she likes the big guys - the OPO, of course ;) Moto G already got mentioned
    Amazon Fire Phone is - in my opinion - crap. Go for the classics.

    You have chosen a right spot for your conversation. Its oneplus forum of course fans will suggest you OPO or OPT. you can buy OPO right now on the store. if you want OPT wait for invites else visit 'Titans of invites' in invite section

    For €100 it'll only cause pain, suffering, and endless arguments!

    Budget phones seem like a good idea but they're so slow they would test the patience of a very patient man.

    Spend a few more quid - or the phone will end up lasting longer than the relationship...

    Meizu M1 Note or M2 Note.

    Nokia Lumia 830

    but if I were you I'd follow the other poster's advice and buy a ring instead of a 100 euro smartphone.
    she'll have less headaches afterwards

    do yourself a favor and buy a real gift that a girl would like with that money. A girl doesn't want a phone, especially not a crappy, cheap one

    She actually needs a phone, I could get her a 500 Euro one but at the same time it's a Birthday present and I don't want her to feel Bad by having such an expensive present which could make her think I expect the same Kind of Gift or similar in value for my Birthday.

    yeah thats a lot of pressure to put on someone...

    looks like the price of the iphone 6 has dropped on ebay though, since the 6s came out
