    Hi all,

    I am looking for a phone to use for a mobile survey that will rely heavily on photographing administrative records. As such, I'm looking for the cheapest unlocked phone available that meets the following requirements:

    1) Camera of 12 MP or higher
    2) Strong battery life - up to 8 hours of consistent use, if possible
    3) 16 GB storage, or ability to upgrade storage

    I don't care about any of the other features.

    I am hoping to find something that meets these features for less than $300, new and unlocked. Any advice? I've been advised to look specifically at Samsung phones, but all suggestions are welcome. Thanks!

    $300 unlocked Samsung phone!?
    Good luck with that.

    I don't believe the phone you are looking for exists.

    Don't know what you mean by "unlocked". If you are talking about being unlocked for multiple carriers, I am not sure. But if you mean unlocked so you can get root access, price can vary by carrier and if phone is a replacement, new line, upgrade with incentives, etc...

    Unlocked for multiple carriers (we'll be using the phones in Uganda). And I'm willing to sacrifice on battery life if it has a removable battery. It seems to me that there are at least a couple phones that meet these specs for under $300 - Nokia N8 and Titan II, for example - but Samsung is the wrong place to look?

    have you considered chinese phones? the THL T100s comes with a 13mxp camera front and back . Service provider is unlocked and RAM: 2GB ROM: 32GB, its slightly over your budget by 6$
