FAQ

Q. What handsets support the BARTER terminal application?

A.

The application has been designed to run on the latest operating system from Android (Jelly Bean 4.3) and as low as Ice Cream Sandwich (4.0). This now equates to over 60% of all Android handsets worldwide, below are a range of handsets and best prices (at the time of writing this answer)

  • Nexus 4 (the latest offering from Google) unlocked, buy direct from Google now only £159.99! it truly is the best deal on the market right now.
  • Galaxy Nexus (the predecessor to the Nexus 4) almost 2 years old, but still a great handset!
  • Want something a little more newer, faster then we recommend these devices HTC one and Samsung Galaxy S4

But don’t take our word, look online for the best deals, read the forums pick the best phone for you. If you would like some help choosing your next mobile phone or contract, then we are here to give an unbiased opinion. Sometimes it might be cheaper to buy the phone separate from the contract (and not be tied into a 24 month contract). It really depends on your needs. If you would like further information regarding phones or contracts send us an email hello@barterproject.org in the subject please write “best mobile”, if you can also provide some details of what you use your mobile mainly for (for example a estimate of how much minutes, texts and data you use per month that will really help us pick the best deal for you). Remember your current provider (whether it be 3, Vodafone, EE or O2) can provide you this information with one simple phone call.
