    Hello. My old nokia phone has recently stopped working so it's time to upgrade and get my first android phone. I have no interest in games (except for maybe some solitaire or sudoku) nor any need for hundreds of apps but I do a lot of text messaging and emailing so I don't want a phone that will run out of storage easily or not be responsive enough to quick typing etc, and I'm a bit confused between the 'internal storage' and 'phone storage' - if I get a basic entry level £50/60 phone off ebay with 1GB rom and 8GB ram and a A7 processor would that be ok for storing thousands of texts and emails or do I need something higher spec? Thanks in advance.

    Hello Fred and welcome to Android Central.

    I believe that 8GB of storage or internal memory will hold several thousand texts. A relatively simple-spec device would probably suit your needs but I'd implore you not to go for something simple-spec AND cheap. There are several good-quality devices available for about £100-150. I don't normally recommend specific devices, but let me point you towards phones like the Moto E 2015, for example. It's a good performer for its price - about £110 - and as well as 8GB of storage, will accept a micro-SD card for up to 32GB of extra storage.
    There are other phones that would do just as well, but you want to choose something with a bit of quality in it. Well, such is my opinion.

    +1 on the Moto E. I think that is honestly the most cost effective phone right now.

    if you are only interested in texting and no pictures, movies, etc then even 4gb space is enough for thausands of txt messages without any problem.
