Cheap phone buying advice needed
I'm new to the whole smartphone thing (I prefer dumbphones) but as my daughter is looking for a cheap phone for general tinkering (she's doing a software engineering degree), I thought I'd ask here.
Given the recent outbreak of bugs, I guess something that's supported by CyanogenMod or Replicant would be best. Secondhand is acceptable, but presumably the battery would need to be easily replaceable in such a case. Is it better to get something new from e.g. Alibaba or secondhand from e.g. Cash Converters or similar? Any idea what sort of prices I should be looking for?
