Andried mobile adult vedio chat
Adults can often overlook front-facing cameras, but for kids who love to take selfies, mess around with Snapchat and video chat, they are highly important.Don't even consider buying a child a phone that doesn't have a selfie camera.You should also consider own-brand PAYG handsets offered by mobile operators, which are often subsidised by the operator in order to get you on their network, such as the Vodafone models in our chart.
Dirt-cheap, basic phones are great phones for kids, which they can use on the trip to and from school.
A good compromise for a PAYG deal that you can keep an eye on is offered by Giff Gaff, which lets you purchase low-cost one-month goodybags that offer a certain number of minutes, text and data, and no more.
Your child won't need to keep tabs on what they're using and neither will you.
We've focused primarily on sub-£200 budget phones in this chart, but also included some slightly more expensive mid-range phones.
