What are the top 3-5 cheapest mobiles with NFC and >5000mah?
Any idea?

Any suggestion for the best phone with longest battery and NFC?

There probably has been, tell us what you found.

Or to put it another way:

Looking for a phone with:

* NFC (objective)
* Cheap (subjective)
* Long battery life (subjective)
Search for phones that have a long battery life:

* eliminate those that don't have a minimum that you're happy with when subjected to your usage pattern,
* eliminate those that don't have NFC,
* eliminate those that exceed your price limit,
* take into account all the other factors of concern to yourself and deliberate on the remainder.

@tomos: The MTK SoC would be enough to cross it off any list of phones I would be considering.

After having two phones with MTK SoC's both have major problems I'd never consider them again.
By contrast I have almost 10 year old Qualcomm based Huawei phones that still work fine.

Not saying it might not be a bad phone for someone else but it isn't one I would consider.

thanks  :up:

@tomos: Something you might want to consider also is if he travels outside the EU, in this case a dual SIM phone comes in handy - you can keep your normal SIM in for receiving calls/SMS and pick up a cheap local SIM for data and/or calls.

My data SIM changes every month or so as cheap deals come up, (normal SIM provider isn't as good for data but they have the best national/roaming coverage).

That's one of the features of the Nokia 6.1, and it has a Qualcomm (Snapdragon 630) soc ;)

Granted I am not a heavy user by any stretch of the imagination, but I usually get 3-5 days out of a charge on the Pixel 3 I picked up back in December.
