The price of the Nokia 5.3 has dropped by £20 since I bought it. Sod's Law. The Nokia 5.3 works with WiFi calling on 3 Mobile PAYG.

Welll........

A bluetooth keyboard will work with any android smartphone that has bluetooth (probably iPhone too).
Indeed you could also use a decent monitor or cast to a TV.

It does however somewhat impact upon portability. You also probably need more than a budget smartphone if you are to actually plug a monitor in, rather than "cast" to a TV.

At that price it's too good to miss. Thank you.

Thanks again to everyone who has posted. I will no doubt be back for advice on how to use the phone when I get stuck.

You cannot go far wrong for that money.
