As you can see the Xioami Mi trumps the Samsung Galaxy by a long way. The only draw back of the Xiomi being that it cant film video in 60fps. Other than that, it has a longer battery span, a faster processor, more RAM and  double the internal storage. Yet it’s almost £250 cheaper! On the value side it’s a bit of a closer competition. The Chinese smart phone manufacturer VK has given us a more powerful processor than the Lumia, however it does have less ram and less internal storage. Although the storage can easily be changed with an added SD. But the VK is £10 cheaper the the Lumia. Perhaps we should call that one a draw. So now if your going to be purchasing a mobile for business or personal use, maybe now you will consider  a Chinese smart phone. They are quite rare to be found within retail stores in the UK, but if you shop around online you can find some great bargains!


With our Nu-Traxx and Youth Contract schemes our learners are granted a budget. This budget is to provide the learner with any facilities that may be needed to help them overcome any obstacles impeding on their progression into employment. This can be for them to meet day to day living costs, it can be for the purchase of photo ID, new suits and smart dress or, it could also be for computers and phones. The criteria for these government funded schemes are very circumstantial but it is always worth asking if you are eligible for that extra help in assistance to employment.
