    as above really, looking for a htc m7 for my ten year old. Been looking on eBay and tons from Hong Kong. A few reviews say not same as fones in U.K. Surely they are the same?

    I would imagine they look the same but are cheaper components inside, so probably slower and lower build quality.

    Might be suitable for a 10 year old though depending on how likely he is to drop it etc?

    Apparently some don't have 4g capability either, I thought a fone was a fone. Why would htc fit cheaper components? He's had a fone before but yes he dropped it.lol.

    I'd be very surprised it if was actually made by HTC, it will just be designed to look like it is. If he's prone to dropping just get him one of those cheaper ones, I can't imagine he's going to notice/care if it's a bit slow/doesn't have 4G etc lol

    So they make copies? really.lol. when I said my ten year old needs a fone I didn't mean to fone or text but to google or YouTube or game.lol

    @Siliconsteve In that case you'd probably be better off getting him a little tablet instead. Can get them very cheap these day, how much you do wanna spend? I'm sure I could find a decent one for him :smile:

    He spends his sparetime making dens etc in woods next to his mums house so needs a fone but he actually uses it as a tablet. lol

    Ah fair enough mate! You got a link to the HTC you were on about? I'll take a look and let you know if it will be any good.

    Found this one for £75 from UK.

    Got loads of scratches on the back but like you said if he drops it, then shouldn't make much difference lol plus can just stick a cheap case on it.
